    • Lavarnway signed a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to spring training with the Yankees on Thursday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. Lavarnway was recently outrighted from Pittsburgh's 40-man roster and elected to become a free agent following just one season within the Pirates' organization. The 31-year-old will have a chance to earn a spot on the Yankees' Opening Day roster, though he will likely be facing an uphill battle, especially if the club retains the services of Austin Romine. Lavarnway has only played in 12 big-league games over the past three years, so look for him to remain at the Triple-A level in 2019.

    • Pirates' Ryan Lavarnway: Cast off 40-man roster
      By RotoWire Staff

      Lavarnway was outrighted from the Pirates' 40-man roster and will become a free agent, Jerry DiPaola of The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Lavarnway elected to hit the free-agent market instead of remaining in the Pirates' system after appearing in just six big-league games in 2018. He spent a majority of the year with Triple-A Indianapolis, slashing .288/.375/.485 with nine home runs and 33 RBI in 77 games. The 31-year-old will look to latch on as catching depth with a new organization.

    • Pirates' Ryan Lavarnway: Promoted to majors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Lavarnway had his contract purchased from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports. Lavarnway will provide addition catching depth for the Pirates as Elias Diaz continues to nurse a hamstring injury. The 31-year-old backstop owns a career .201/.262/.318 slash line across 140 big-league games.

    • Pirates' Ryan Lavarnway: Will not make team
      By RotoWire Staff

      Lavarnway was told Monday that he would not make the Pirates' Opening Day roster, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic Pittsburgh reports. Lavarnway joined the Pirates as a non-roster invitee in January and battled for the backup catcher job, which was eventually won by Elias Diaz. The 30-year-old could remain with Pittsburgh as organizational depth. He's appeared in the majors in parts of six seasons, hitting .201/.262/.318 in 140 games.

    • Lavarnway agreed to a minor-league contract with the Pirates and will attend major-league spring training as a non-roster invitee, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. The lack of a 40-man roster spot makes it highly unlikely that Lavarnway will break camp with the big club, even if he's a standout performer in the Grapefruit League. After Lavarnway slashed an unremarkable .239/.327/.341 across 304 plate appearances with Triple-A Nashville in Oakland's system last season, Pittsburgh likely just views the 30-year-old as organizational catching depth.
