Those two walks allowed the Indians to score three runs in the ninth inning. He was charged with two hits, three runs (one earned) in his inning of work.
The Braves say that there is nothing mechanically wrong with Vizcaino. He says that he will be able to go should his number be called on Wednesday.
“I will be ready if they need me again today,” he said. “If it is a save situation, I will be in the game and it’s no problem for me.”
Since his return from an MLB suspension for performance-enhancing drugs in 2015, he had posted a 1.49 ERA and .204 opponents’ average over 56 appearances from his return in early July through May 29, when he started his current slump.
Those numbers put him in All-Star game consideration but now Snitker hopes that Vizcaino can just get back on track.
“He will fight through it and he will be fine,” Snitker said. “He is a confident young man and this is part of it.”
