  • Bauers was reassigned to minor-league camp Wednesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. Bauers served as a non-roster invitee to begin spring training, and he went 6-for-17 with two homers, eight runs, five RBI, four walks and seven strikeouts across eight Cactus League appearances. The 26-year-old will begin the season at Triple-A Louisville but has some defensive versatility making him an option as a big-league depth piece in 2022.

  • Bauers joined the Reds as a non-roster invitee Monday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Bauers is still just 26 years old and was considered a fairly interesting prospect not too long ago, but he's come nowhere close to living up to his potential thus far. In 328 career major-league games, he's hit just .213/.307/.348, a line that's nowhere close to good enough for a player limited to first base and the outfield corners. While it's theoretically possible he could figure things out for the Reds in 2022 and make good on his promise, it's far more likely that he remains a player undeserving of regular at-bats at the highest level, as his career 5.5 percent barrel rate indicates that he simply doesn't make good enough contact to be a corner slugger.

  • The Mariners outrighted Bauers to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday. After being acquired from Cleveland on June 10, Bauers proceeded to hit .220 with two home runs and six stolen bases across 182 at-bats with the Mariners. The lack of power from a corner-outfield bat made it tough for the Mariners to justify keeping Bauers on the 40-man roster heading into the offseason, and none of baseball's other 29 organizations were willing to dedicate a spot to the 26-year-old either when he was available on waivers. Bauers should still get the chance to compete for a bench role with the Mariners in spring training, assuming he doesn't elect free agency.

  • Bauers went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Royals. Bauers absolutely clobbered a first-pitch fastball from Jackson Kowar that sailed 460 feet to right field to extend the Mariners' lead to 5-0 in the third. The long ball was his first hit since Sept. 5. He had been hitless in his previous 16 at-bats. His recent struggles are in line with his overall production on the season, as he's slashing .216/.294/.286 with four homers, 19 RBI, 25 runs scored, six steals and 29:73 BB:K over 303 plate appearances.

  • Bauers entered Sunday's extra-innings win over the Diamondbacks as a pinch hitter in the top of the 11th and laced a two-run double while also subsequently scoring a run. Bauers was called on to hit for pitcher Yohan Ramirez in the 11th and the Mariners already holding a 7-3 lead, and his clutch two-bagger plated Tom Murphy and Abraham Toro to give Seattle even more breathing room. Bauers' playing time remains relatively sparse, but he's now reached safely in five of the last seven games he's appeared in.
