      Phillies' Gift Ngoepe: Heading to minor-league camp

      Gift Ngoepe will head to minor-league camp Tuesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.Unsurprisingly, Ngoepe wasn't able to crack the Opening Day roster. With a .181/.272/.236 line in 82 big-league plate appearances, there's no guarantee the Philadelphia Phillies will look to him when injuries strike their infield.

      Phillies' Gift Ngoepe: Dealing with visa issues

      Gift Ngoepe has yet to arrive at Philadelphia Phillies camp while he waits to secure a travel visa, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.Ngoepe was already facing an uphill battle to win an Opening Day bench role with the Phillies by virtue of being a non-roster invitee, and the missed time to begin camp won't help his case. He'll likely be withheld from the Phillies' first handful of Grapefruit League contests until his visa issues are resolved.

      Phillies' Gift Ngoepe: Signs minors deal with Phillies

      Gift Ngoepe signed a minor-league contract with the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.Ngoepe made it further than any African-born player ever had when he made his big-league debut for the Pirates in 2017, though he hasn't done much in his limited major-league opportunities. In a short stint for Pittsburgh that season and an even shorter one in Toronto last year, the infielder has hit just .181/.272/.236 in 82 plate appearances. He'll fill an organizational depth role in Philadelphia this season and is unlikely to receive more than a handful of at-bats.

      Gift Ngoepe: Signs in Australia

      Gift Ngoepe signed a contract with the Sydney Blue Sox of the Australian Baseball League, John Lott of The Athletic Toronto reports.Ngoepe was released by the Blue Jays earlier in the month after hitting just .168/.304/.252 across 48 games with Triple-A Buffalo. The Blue Sox's season starts in November and wraps up in February, so he could latch on with a major-league team before spring training next season.

      Blue Jays' Gift Ngoepe: Clears waivers and heads to minors

      Gift Ngoepe cleared waivers Monday and was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo.Ngoepe was available for any team to claim, but a 28-year-old utility infielder with a career .181/.272/.236 line doesn't make for a particularly appealing player. He'll head back to the minors and could be back up as needed throughout the season, though he shouldn't be expected to have much fantasy relevance if and when he does return.

      Blue Jays' Gift Ngoepe: DFA'd by Toronto

      Gift Ngoepe was designated for assignment Thursday Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.Just hours after being optioned down to Triple-A, Ngoepe is now without a spot on the 40-man roster after the Toronto Blue Jays made a flurry of moves between games in Thursday's doubleheader. Reliever Luis Santos had his contract selected and he will take Ngoepe's spot. Ngoepe had seen inconsistent playing time in the weeks leading up to his demotion and he had just one hit in 18 at-bats. He'll now be subject to waivers, but could return to the Blue Jays' organization if he goes unclaimed.

      Blue Jays' Gift Ngoepe: Optioned to Buffalo

      Gift Ngoepe was sent down to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.Ngoepe only appeared in one game since re-joining the big-league team at the beginning of this week, but didn't record an at-bat, instead serving as a pinch-runner and scoring one run against the Twins on Tuesday. He will continue to receive everyday at-bats at the Triple-A level instead of being utilized as a reserve for the Toronto Blue Jays.

      Blue Jays' Gift Ngoepe: Back with Blue Jays

      Gift Ngoepe is back in the big leagues, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.Ngoepe was called up to replace the injured Randal Grichuk (knee). He spent the start of the season on the Toronto Blue Jays' bench but went just 1-for-18 with 12 strikeouts before being sent to Triple-A Buffalo in mid-April. Nothing in his profile suggests that he'll be much of a fantasy asset this time around, either.
