Player Notes

  • Jose Osuna signs with Tokyo Yakult Swallows
    Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that the Jose Osuna has signed with the Tokyo Yakult Swallows. 

    Advice: The Pirates designated Osuna for assignment last week, and he's found a new home relatively quickly. The 27-year-old hit just .205/.244/.397 last year with four homers and a 16/4 K/BB ratio in 82 plate appearances. The year before, however, Osuna hit 10 homers with a .756 OPS in 95 games. If Osuna hits well in Japan, it certainly seems likely that he could be back in an MLB role in a year or two.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:46 pm

  • Pirates DFA first baseman Will Craig on Wed.
    Pirates designated 1B Will Craig for assignment.

    Advice: Ashton Goudeau, claimed off waivers from the Rockies on Wednesday, will fill the vacant 40-man roster spot. Craig, 26, went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his first taste of MLB action this past season in Pittsburgh. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:18 pm
  • Orioles officially release Renato Nunez; now FA
    Orioles released 1B/DH Renato Nunez.

    Advice: Nunez went unclaimed on waivers, but he should now command multiple offers in free agency after putting up a strong .816 OPS with 12 home runs and 31 RBI over 52 games for Baltimore during the shortened 2020 campaign. NL teams may have been hesitant to claim him given the still-uncertain DH situation for 2021. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:10 pm

  • Rangers will give Apostel a look at first base
    The Rangers plan to give Sherten Apostel a look at first base this spring. 

    Advice: Apostel has mostly played third base in his professional career, but he's not anything close to an elite defender at the position, and his size (6'4/235) suggests he might outgrow it soon. The 21-year-old got a brief call-up during the 2020 season; going 2-for-20 with nine strikeouts in seven games. He's one of the top prospects in the system, and since the Rangers don't have an obvious answer at first base right now, it makes sense that they'd give him a look at the position during the Cactus League. More than likely, Apostel will open the 2021 season in the minors, but he could receive a promotion over the summer.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:15 pm
  • Rockies add Colton Welker to 40-man roster Friday
    Rockies purchased the contract of 3B Colton Welker.

    Advice: The move protects Welker -- the Rockies fourth round pick from the 2016 draft -- from the upcoming Rule-5 draft. The 23-year-old hit .252/.313/.408 with 10 homers, 53 RBI and a 68/32 K/BB ratio over 394 plate appearances at Double-A Hartford in 2019. It's unclear if he'll return to Double-A to begin the 2021 campaign, or if he'll start at Triple-A. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:12 pm
