    • J.P. Arencibia: Walks away from baseball
      By RotoWire Staff

      Arencibia retired from professional baseball Wednesday. The 31-year-old backstop failed to crack a major league roster in 2016, so rather than live off another minor league assignment, he opted to simply step away from the game. Arencibia appeared in the big leagues in parts of six seasons, compiling a .212/.258/.412 with 80 home runs across 1,573 at-bats.

    • Arencibia is hitting .396 with four homers for Triple-A Durham in the 11 games since the All-Star break, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The veteran backstop is slashing .250/.284/.425 overall with the Bulls in 212 at-bats, but recently enjoyed a three-game stretch of multi-hit efforts. Arencibia is only a career .212 hitter at the major league level, but did excel in a 24-game stint with the Rays last season, producing a .310/.315/.606 line over 71 at-bats that included six homers and 17 RBI. Considering Tampa's season-long quest for offense, there's always a possibility the 30-year-old could find himself with the big league club at some point befor the 2016 campaign concludes.

    • Arencibia signed a minor league contract with the Rays on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The veteran catcher was granted his release by the Phillies on Monday, and with the Rays' deficiencies at catcher at the major league level, Tampa Bay becomes an interesting landing spot for Arencibia. However, it's important to note that Arencibia will begin this stint with the Rays organization at Triple-A Durham and he is not on the 40-man roster, so it could be a while before he's recalled. Carlos Corporan was released in a corresponding move Friday

    • J.P. Arencibia: Granted release by Phillies
      By RotoWire Staff

      Arencibia was granted his release by the Phillies on Monday, Matt Breen of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The veteran failed to crack the Opening Day roster out of camp and has struggled at Triple-A, hitting a paltry .167 with 11 strikeouts in 48 at-bats. In need of a change of scenery, Arencibia will likely look to catch on with another organization on a minor league deal.

    • Arencibia was assigned to minor league camp Friday, Paul Hagen of MLB.com reports. Arencibia hit .269 (7-for-26) with two home runs this spring. He is going to be the first catcher up from the minors if anything happens to Cameron Rupp or Carlos Ruiz this season.
