Recker was outrighted off the Twins' 40-man roster Friday, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. The 33-year-old spent the bulk of the season with Triple-A Gwinnett before being traded to the Twins along with Jaime Garcia. Recker slashed .223/.301/.381 in 139 at-bats for Gwinnett this season, and posted even worse numbers in his few opportunities with the Braves. The veteran catcher is unlikely to be more than organizational depth for Minnesota and currently holds no fantasy value.
Recker was traded along with Jaime Garcia to the Twins on Monday for minor-league pitcher Huascar Ynoa. Recker recently spent time in the big leagues while Kurt Suzuki was away from the team, but the 33-year-old has largely been an organizational depth piece for the Braves. He's likely to fill a similar role in Minnesota.
Recker was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday. With Kurt Suzuki returning from the bereavement list ahead of Monday's contest, Recker's services were no longer needed at the big-league level. The 33-year-old didn't appear at all during this most recent cup of coffee with Atlanta, so he'll head back to the minors to act as organizational depth.
Recker was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett after Thursday's game, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Kurt Suzuki is on the bereavement list and will return to the club Monday. Recker will provide depth behind Tyler Flowers for the weekend and probably will be optioned again once Suzuki rejoins the depth chart.
Recker was outrighted to Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday, David O'Brien of the AJC reports. The veteran backstop was DFA'd on Sunday to clear a 40-man spot for the recently acquired Matt Adams, but Recker went unclaimed on waivers and will remain with the organization. With the way Tyler Flowers and Kurt Suzuki are producing with the Braves, Recker figures to be an organizational depth piece at Triple-A for the foreseeable future.
