Royals' Peter O'Brien: Dealt to Royals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

O'Brien was traded to the Royals on Tuesday in exchange for minor league pitcher Sam Lewis, MLB.com reports.

O'Brien will be added to the Royals 40-man roster after he was DFA'd by the Diamondbacks last month. The 26-year-old appeared in 28 major league games last season but spent the bulk of the year at Triple-A, where he hit .254/.295/.505 with 24 home runs and 75 RBI in 406 at-bats. The former second-round pick will compete for a spot on the Opening Day roster but could ultimately end up beginning 2017 at the Triple-A level.

Diamondbacks' Peter O'Brien: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Brien was designated for assignment on Friday.

This move has been a long time coming, and it is not surprising to see the new regime cut bait with O'Brien, who at best is an AL-only player, given his lack of a defensive home. More likely, he is a Quadruple-A bat with big raw power and a below-average hit tool. Look for a rebuilding American League club to roll the dice on claiming him and bringing him to camp in case he can demonstrate an ability to make contact at a solid enough clip for his power to play in games.

Diamondbacks' Peter O'Brien: Not playing much since call-up
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Since being recalled on Sept. 6, O'Brien has just five at-bats and they've all come as a pinch hitter.

He's become somewhat buried on the Diamondbacks' depth chart at this point. At 26 years old, O'Brien is no longer a young prospect and it's unclear what his future is with Arizona. He offers tremendous power, but he's also hitting just .145 this year with a brutal 40 percent strikeout rate. Those numbers will need to improve if O'Brien is going to be part of Arizona's 2017 plans.

Diamondbacks' Peter O'Brien: Could serve as emergency catcher
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

O'Brien said he is prepared to serve as the Diamondbacks' emergency No. 3 catcher, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports.

Backup catcher Chris Herrmann broke two bones in his left hand Friday and will miss the rest of the season. That leaves the Diamondbacks with Welington Castillo and Tuffy Gosewisch as healthy catchers on the roster. O'Brien came up through the minors as a catcher, but the organization has shifted him to the outfield and he hasn't appeared behind the plate this year. It seems unlikely that O'Brien will catch for Arizona before the season ends.

Diamondbacks' Peter O'Brien: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

O'Brien was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

O'Brien continues to get older (26) and his big league resume has not gotten any more impressive. He boasts a .164 average with five homers and a 41.7-percent K rate through 72 MLB plate appearances, showcasing his plus raw power and below-average hit tool. He should play sparingly for the D-Backs over the final month.
