Mazzaro has joined Sacramento after accepting his assignment to Triple-A, Joe Salvatore of KCBS Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mazzaro was designated by the Giants on Friday after two appearances which resulted in an ERA of 63.00 and WHIP of 8.00. Despite the obviously horrendous start to the season, the 29-year-old still has plenty of major league experience and could certainly find his way back to the Giants' bullpen at a later point in the summer.

Mazzaro was designated for assignment by the Giants on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The Rockies kept the hit parade going against Mazzaro after Matt Cain left Thursday's game, racking up six base knocks and seven earned runs off the right-hander. Mazzaro managed to record just one out. He will now be subjected to waivers, but Mazzaro may ultimately accept an outright assignment back to Triple-A.

Mazzaro was called up by the Giants on Saturday, CSN Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reports.

EDGE Analysis

He takes Mike Broadway's spot in the bullpen, after Broadway was optioned to Triple-A on Saturday. The veteran righty reliever posted a 3.75 ERA last year with the Marlins, although he has never been overpowering. His 0.64 ERA in 14 innings at Triple-A likely prompted the promotion, but he is unlikely to see high-leverage looks with the big club.

Mazzaro signed a minor league deal with the Braves and was assigned to Triple-A Gwinnett, MLB.com's Kevin McAlpin reports.

Mazzaro will provide bullpen depth for the Braves, following a mediocre stint with the Marlins. If/when he's called up, he'll likely get most of his work in medium and low-leverage situations.

Mazzaro was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Saturday, MLB.com reports.

After being designated for assignment Thursday, Mazzaro went unclaimed on waivers and will stick around in the Marlins' organization. He'll have to be added back to the 40-man roster if the Marlins decide to bring him up to the big leagues at any point to provide a spot-start or long-relief option.

Mazzaro was designated for assignment Thursday.

Mazzaro's demotion comes on the heels of Jarred Cosart's activation from the 15-day disabled list. He will now serve as organizational depth in the minors, but would likely be one of the top options to rejoin the bullpen should another injury occur.

Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that the Pirates are willing to listen to offers for reliever Vin Mazzaro.

Mazzaro is out of options this spring and is coming off a 2.81 ERA over 57 appearances last season, but he appears to be the odd man out in Pittsburgh's bullpen at the moment. The Pirates might be able to find a taker.
