Cardinals Designate Conner Greene, Derian Gonzalez For Assignment

22 days ago   |   By MLB Trade Rumors

The Cardinals announced a series of roster moves in advance of tonight's deadline to set 40-man rosters before next month's Rule 5 Draft.

In order to clear the two spots necessary to accommodate that quartet, the Cards designated right-handers Conner Greene and Derian Gonzalez for assignment.

Diamondbacks outright former first-rounder Braden Shipley

22 days ago   |   By Yardbarker

The D-backs announced Tuesday that they've assigned right-handers Braden Shipley and Artie Lewicki outright to Triple-A Reno after the pair cleared waivers. The moves bring their 40-man roster to a total of 33 players. It's a disappointing outcome for Shipley, whom Arizona drafted with the 15th overall selection back in 2013. The former University of Nevada-Reno standout has accumulated exactly 100 innings at the big league level over the past three seasons but been hit hard, posting a 5.49 ERA with just 64 strikeouts against 45 walks in that time. Beyond lackluster K/BB numbers, home runs...

Red Sox, Padres Nearing Agreement On Colten Brewer Trade

22 days ago   |   By MLB Trade Rumors

The Red Sox are nearing an agreement to acquire right-hander Colten Brewer from the Padres, tweets Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. A minor leaguer who doesn't need to be added to the Padres' 40-man roster to be protected before today's Rule 5 deadline will be the return.
It's a minor swap designed to give the Padres some roster flexibility before 8pm ET tonight - the deadline for teams to protect players from selection in next month's Rule 5 Draft. Brewer, a fourth-round pick of the Pirates in 2011, has just 9 2/3 innings of big league experience, all of which came with the Padres in 2018...

Marlins Claim Julian Fernandez

22 days ago   |   By MLB Trade Rumors

The Marlins announced that they've claimed right-hander Julian Fernandez off waivers from the Giants. Their 40-man roster now has 36 players.
The Giants selected Fernandez, 22, out of the Rockies organization with the second pick in the 2017 Rule 5 Draft. However, the right-hander suffered a UCL tear in Spring Training and underwent Tommy John surgery in early April. He never pitched in a regular-season game for the Giants, instead spending the season on the 60-day disabled list.
Fernandez should be recovered early in the 2019 season, but he'll retain his Rule 5 eligibility next season...

Players Added To The 40-Man Roster

22 days ago   |   By MLB Trade Rumors

Tonight marks the deadline for players to be added to their respective organizations' 40-man rosters. Over the nine hours, there'll be a flurry of moves, ranging from minor trades ( like the one the Indians and Rays made yesterday ), waiver claims and players being designated for assignment or outrighted. Each will be made to clear room for players who need protection from this year's Rule 5 Draft. As a reminder, players who signed at 18 years of age or younger and have five professional seasons are eligible, as are players who signed at 19 or older and have four professional seasons under...
