Indians' Giovanny Urshela: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Sunday.

Urshela's stay with the big club was never expected to be long after he was called up Saturday to serve as the 26th man for the team's doubleheader with the Twins. The third baseman ended up entering the lineup for Game 2, going 0-for-4 at the dish. The Indians recalled reliever Shawn Armstrong to assume Urshela's spot on the active roster.

Indians' Giovanny Urshela: Joining big club for Game 2, starting at third base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela was recalled from Triple-A Columbus for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins. He is starting at third base and batting ninth.

The 25-year-old was slashing .272/.329/.375 in 60 games with Columbus before earning the promotion. With the Indians not wanting to send Jason Kipnis out in back-to-back contests due to a lingering neck issue, Urshela was added to fill his void in the lineup, though he'll ultimately start at third base while Jose Ramirez slides over to second. Urshela likely won't stay with the big club past the weekend.

Indians' Giovanny Urshela: Hitting well for Columbus this month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela is hitting .292 with six extra-base hits (two home runs) over 17 games this month with Triple-A Columbus.

The infielder has yet to return to MLB since hitting .225 in 81 games for the Indians in 2015. Indians' management doesn't seem too interested in Urshela, passing him up in favor of other options (like Yandy Diaz and Erik Gonzalez) when the big-league squad has been in need of depth this year. A main reason the 25-year-old gets overlooked is because he fails to offer the positional flexibility that the other guys do. The way things are trending now, Urshela may be in for another full season at Triple-A.

Indians' Giovanny Urshela: Won't make Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Urshela's performance this spring was fine, but wasn't deemed deserving of a spot on the 25-man roster. Over 20 games he went 11-for-41 (.268) and hit two home runs. Although he may appear in the majors throughout the upcoming season, Urshela's fantasy value will remain limited unless those ahead of him in the organization face injuries.

Indians' Giovanny Urshela: Finds new opportunity to win job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urshela's chances of making the Opening Day roster have increased due to the injury of Jason Kipnis (shoulder), MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

Jose Ramirez, the team's starting third baseman, may be headed over to temporarily fill Kipnis' shoes at second. If that proves to be the case, an extra glove at the hot corner will be needed on the Tribe's 25-man roster. Urshela is among a handful of players vying for the gig that includes Erik Gonzalez, Richie Shaffer and Yandy Diaz. Although Urshela's offensive capabilities are substandard to his competitors, the 25-year-old has one of the better gloves of the group (if not the best) and that may be manager Terry Francona's most-desired attribute for whoever he chooses to fill the role at third.
