      Pirates' Jacob Goebbert: Bench might be best bet

      Goebbert is expected to compete for a spot off the bench for Pittsburgh in 2016, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. "He's a versatile left-handed hitter who does some things we like in the batter's box," GM Neal Huntington said. "He could compete to make our club as a bat off the bench." Goebbert could also compete for time as the left-handed part of a first base platoon, especially if Pedro Alvarez is dealt, but his best bet to make the team is as a backup first baseman/outfielder. He also has three minor league options remaining, leaving Pittsburgh flexibility to start him at Triple-A if it finds better options.

      Jake Goebbert gets the call to replace Yonder Alonso

      The Padres recalled outfielder Jake Goebbert from Triple-A El Paso Thursday, to take Yonder Alonso's place on the active roster after he was placed on the disabled list. According to U-T San Diego, Goebbert is likely to split time between the outfield and first base, likely in a platoon with Tommy Medica.

He was hitting .270/.383/.459 for El Paso.

      Kyle Blanks headed from San Diego to Oakland

      The Padres have traded former top hitting prospect Kyle Blanks to Oakland for minor league outfielder Jake Goebbert and a player to be named, a source has told the San Diego Union-Tribune. The 27-year-old first baseman, who was optioned by San Diego to the minors Tuesday, managed two hits in 10 at-bats this season. He has thrived at the minor-league level, but owns just a mediocre career stat line of .228/.310/.401 in the majors. But he has nine home runs and 20 RBI in just 83 at-bats with El Paso this season. The Athletics are hoping a change of scenery will spur Blanks to fulfill his potential.
