Moroff signed a minor-league deal with the Cardinals on Tuesday that includes an invitation to big-league camp, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. The 27-year-old joined the Mets on a minor-league deal for 2020, but he remained at the alternate training site all season. Moroff has appeared in 104 games since making his major-league debut in 2016 and has a career .183/.277/.319 slash line in 244 plate appearances.
Moroff has been added to the Mets' 60-man player pool, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. The former Pittsburgh and Cleveland player signed a minor-league deal with the Mets in the offseason. Moroff has a weak .183/.277/.319 slash line through 244 career plate appearances in the majors, but his defensive versatility could prove useful if New York's infield depth gets tested.
Moroff signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training. Moroff saw limited playing time in 2019 as he dealt with a strained left scapula, but he saw major-league action for the fourth consecutive year. The 26-year-old struck out 16 times in 35 plate appearances in the majors. He wasn't much better in the minors, recording a .213/.375/.361 slash line with four home runs and eight RBI over 34 games. Moroff faces an uphill battle for time in the majors after he struggled last season, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him appear in some major-league games if injuries arise.
Moroff landed on the minor-league injured list at Triple-A Columbus with a strained left scapula Saturday. Moroff was designated for assignment in early May after hitting just .125/.176/.250 in 35 big-league plate appearances. The injury means he's one step further from returning to the big leagues.
Moroff cleared waivers Saturday and was outrighted to Triple-A Columbus, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. It's not particularly surprising that Moroff passed through waivers unclaimed, as he owns a career .183/.277/.319 slash line in 104 major-league games. He'll serve as organizational depth for the Indians moving forward.
