    • Indians' Matt Joyce: Won't make roster
      By RotoWire Staff

      Joyce was informed Friday that he won't break camp with Cleveland, T.J. Zuppe of The Athletic reports. Joyce's odds of making the team as a bench bat diminished when the team signed Hanley Ramirez in late February. The veteran will take some time to determine whether he has any other opportunities before deciding whether to head to Triple-A, though his .208/.322/.353 line for Oakland last season likely means that teams won't be scrambling to pick him up.

    • Indians' Matt Joyce: Heads to Cleveland
      By RotoWire Staff

      Joyce signed a minor-league contract with the Indians on Friday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, Joe Noga of Cleveland.com reports. Joyce spent the last two seasons with Oakland but struggled over 83 games in 2018, slashing .208/.322/.353 with seven home runs. The 35-year-old had 38 home runs and a .828 OPS over the previous two years, so he isn't far removed from providing a quality bat in the majors. Joyce should compete for a spot in Cleveland's outfield rotation that features little in terms of established talent.

    • Joyce went 2-for-3 with a two-run single in the Athletics' extra-innings loss to the Mariners on Tuesday. Joyce drew the start in right field, his first since returning from an extended stay on the disabled list due to a lumbar strain. The veteran outfielder produced his first multi-hit tally since July 1 in the process, but with such sparse playing time, his fantasy value has taken a significant hit.

    • Athletics' Matt Joyce: First hit since DL return
      By RotoWire Staff

      Joyce laced a single and scored a run in a pinch-hit at-bat in Wednesday's win over the Angels. Joyce had appeared as either a defensive replacement or pinch-hitter in 10 games -- including the last eight prior to Wednesday -- since his return from an extended stay on the disabled list due to a lumbar strain. However, Wednesday's single was his first hit since activation. Joyce appears likely to continue riding the pine with the likes of Ramon Laureano and Nick Martini thriving with their playing time in the outfield.

    • Athletics' Matt Joyce: Sitting again Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Joyce is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Joyce was activated off the 10-day disabled list Saturday after recovering from a lumbar strain but has yet to return to the lineup. The 34-year-old's .203/.311/.359 slash line in 192 at-bats prior to the injury doesn't provide much incentive to re-insert him into a starting role, but the Athletics' plan for September remains to be seen.
