Triunfel inked a minor league contract with the Reds on Friday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Triunfel spent the entirety of the 2015 season at the Triple-A level in the Giants organization with Brandon Crawford presenting a road block in front of him at shortstop. Although the Reds have some nice pieces in the infield as well, there's still a better chance for the 25-year-old to crack the big league roster with his new club than in years past. Even if that's the case, Triunfel doesn't present much upside offensively, limiting his potential fantasy value.
The Giants re-assigned 11 players to minor-league camp Tuesday: catchers Aramis Garcia and Ty Ross, second baseman Kelby Tomlinson, shortstops Carlos Triunfel and Christian Arroyo, outfielder Mac Williamson and pitchers Cory Gearrin, Chris Stratton, Ty Blach, Kyle Crick and Adalberto Mejia.
The Giants signed infielder Carlos Triunfel to a minor league contract. While playing for the Dodgers in 2014, Triunfel produced two hits in 15 at-bats.
The Dodgers added outfielder Roger Bernadina to the active roster Saturday while also sending infielder Carlos Triunfel outright to Triple-A Albuquerque. Bernadina hit .153/.286/.203 in 59 at-bats with the Reds earlier this season. He owns a .246/.380/.351 line in 57 at-bats with Albuquerque.
The Dodgers have dispatched shortstop Carlos Triunfel to Triple-A Albuquerque. They had designated him for assignment Monday. Triunfel managed just two hits in 15 at-bats with the big league club this season.
