      Phillies' Odubel Herrera: Impresses on offense, defense

      Odubel Herrera looked good on both sides of the ball in Thursday's 15-0 Grapefruit League win over the Yankees, going 2-for-3 with a solo homer and recording an outfield assist.League rules prevented the Philadelphia Phillies from further punishing Herrera following his domestic violence suspension in 2019, but nothing in the rules forces them to give him playing time. As such, he wasn't given a spot in the team's player pool last season, but he's been getting opportunities in spring games and has looked good so far. He'll have to really stand out for the Phillies to take on the baggage that would come with giving a roster spot, but he could certainly force the team's hand with a strong camp, especially as the other center-field options in Philadelphia aren't the most inspiring.

      Phillies' Odubel Herrera: To compete for center field job

      Odubel Herrera will get the chance to compete for the Philadelphia Phillies' center field job this spring, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.The Phillies have kept Herrera in the organization since his May 2019 arrest for domestic violence, but they've shown no intention of adding him back to their roster. He missed the remainder of 2019 while serving a suspension and was not given a spot in the team's player pool last year. From a purely on-field perspective, Herrera's career 102 wRC+ (the product of a .276/.333/.423 slash line) is significantly better than what the alternatives such as Scott Kingery, Adam Haseley, Roman Quinn and Mickey Moniak have managed. It's still not a particularly impressive resume, however, and he hasn't recorded a wRC+ above 100 since 2016, so the Phillies may see little need to take on the baggage that would come with giving him a roster spot.

      Phillies' Odubel Herrera: Attending mini-camp

      Odubel Herrera will be with the Philadelphia Phillies for spring training but will be part of a mini-camp of minor leaguers rather than a non-roster invitee.Herrera has been out of favor since his arrest for domestic violence back in May of 2019. He missed the remainder of that season while serving a suspension and then was excluded from Philadelphia's player pool in 2020. While he remains part of the Phillies organization and has shown more in the past than the team's other options in center field (Roman Quinn, Adam Haseley, Scott Kingery and Mickey Moniak), he doesn't appear particularly close to returning to the big leagues.

      Phillies' Odubel Herrera: Playing winter ball

      Odubel Herrera joined Gigantes del Cibao of the Dominican Winter League on Thursday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.Herrera hasn't played in a big-league game since May of 2019. He missed the remainder of that season due to a domestic violence suspension and then was not included in the Philadelphia Phillies' player pool this year. The rest of the league had the opportunity to pick him up in January, when he was designated for assignment, but declined to do so. It's possible a strong performance in the Dominican Republic this offseason increases his stock, though teams may remain reluctant to give him opportunities.

      Phillies' Odubel Herrera: Role uncertain

      Odubel Herrera's role for the upcoming season remains unclear, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.Herrera was designated for assignment in mid-January after missing most of 2019 due to a suspension for a violation of the league's domestic violence policy. He's still a member of the organization and is owed $19.5 million going forward, though it's unclear whether or not the Philadelphia Phillies have any desire to see him wear red pinstripes again at any point in his career. His status is made even less clear by the fact that details surrounding the minor leagues and a potential taxi squad for the shortened season remain murky.

He's expected to attend minor-league camp during spring training, but his long-term future with the team is uncertain.

      Phillies' Odubel Herrera: Designated for assignment

      Odubel Herrera was designated for assignment by the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday.Herrera missed most of the 2019 season while serving a suspension for violating the league's domestic violence policy. This transaction is likely related to that incident; while Herrera was quite poor (.222/.288/.341) when available last season, he's a career .276/.333/.423 hitter who is still owed $19.5 million by the club. The Phillies were happy to move on despite the financial commitment and will give his spot on the 40-man roster to Nick Martini, claimed off waivers from the Reds in a corresponding move.

      Phillies' Odubel Herrera: Finished with suspension

      Odubel Herrera was activated from the restricted list Thursday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.Herrera had been out since mid-May due to a suspension for violating the league's domestic violence policy. The Philadelphia Phillies may look to move on from their former starting center fielder this offseason due to both his actions and his .222/.288/.341 line prior to the incident.

      Phillies' Odubel Herrera: Suspended for remainder of season

      Odubel Herrera was suspended without pay for the remainder of the season Friday for violating the league's domestic violence policy, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.Herrera was arrested on assault charges back on May 17. The victim (his girlfriend) elected not to press charges, but MLB evidently found enough during its own investigation to sideline Herrera for the rest of the season. The suspension will extend through the postseason should the Philadelphia Phillies qualify. Herrera will not appeal the suspension and will take part in an evaluation and treatment program. Scott Kingery will presumably remain the primary center fielder for the remainder of the season in Herrera's absence.

      Phillies' Odubel Herrera: Has charges dropped

      Odubel Herrera is no longer facing assault charges stemming from his May 17 arrest in New Jersey after his girlfriend declined to press charges during a court appearance Wednesday in Atlantic City, Amy S. Rosenberg of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.Though he'll have the domestic-violence charge expunged from his record, Herrera will remain on administrative leave with the Philadelphia Phillies through Friday before the organization provides an update on his roster status. Even if Herrera is reinstated this weekend, he's uncertain to receive immediate clearance to play, as Major League Baseball could still issue a suspension for the outfielder as it continues to hold its own investigation into the May incident. Rosenberg notes that the Phillies aren't privy to the details of MLB's investigation, but general manager Matt Klentak suggested the organization was waiting for Herrera's court appearance to take place before issue its own ruling.
