Player Outlook
Jon Berti played in a career-high 133 games with the Marlins in 2023 and posted a career-best .294 batting average while registering his highest OPS (.748) since 2019. It was enough to convince the Marlins that he was worth bringing back on a $3.63 million club option for 2024. Oddly enough, though, his fantasy stock is lower now than it was a year ago. Berti stole 41 bases in 46 attempts in 2022, pacing all major leaguers in that category despite operating in a utility role. He was more of an everyday guy last season but tallied only 16 steals in 22 tries. If he is not swiping bags at an elite pace, and with that .294 batting average looking unrepeatable, the 34-year-old is more of an off-and-on waiver-wire type than a draft-day consideration.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Dealing with high-grade strain

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday that Berti was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a high-grade left calf strain, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports. Boone didn't provide a timeline for Berti, though the 34-year-old will remain on the IL well beyond the 10-day minimum. Berti sustained the injury in an 8-0 win over the Padres on Friday, when he collapsed to the ground after running out of the batter's box in the ninth inning. Kevin Smith was called up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre on Saturday and should provide infield depth while Berti is on the shelf.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Hits injured list with calf strain

    The Yankees placed Berti on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a left calf strain. Berti was in visible pain after falling to the ground as he began to run toward first base during Friday's game, and it will officially cost him at least 10 days as he heads to the injured list. The trainers appeared to be working near Berti's Achilles' tendon while he was on the ground, though imaging showed he suffered only a calf strain as a result of the incident. Kevin Smith will come up from Triple-A to take Berti's roster spot.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Exits with injury

    Berti was removed from Friday's game against the Padres with an apparent leg injury, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports. Berti collapsed to the ground running out of the batter's box and was in visible pain after hitting a groundball to second base in the ninth inning. Athletic trainers immediately began tending to his lower left leg -- near his Achilles tendon -- and the 34-year-old infielder couldn't put any weight on his left leg as he was helped off the field. The Yankees will presumably take Berti in for imaging, and it's very possible he requires a trip to the injured list.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Blasts first homer

    Berti went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run Sunday against the White Sox. Berti's first homer of the season came off White Sox starter Chris Flexen with two outs and two men on in the fourth. It was the first extra-base hit of the season for Berti, who is now hitting .277 after entering the contest batting .250 through 44 at-bats.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Nabs second steal

    Berti went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in a 2-0 victory versus the Rays on Friday. Berti started at third base and batted out of the No. 9 hole, and he was one of four Yankees with multiple hits in the victory. It was his third start in six games since returning from the injured list May 4, as Oswaldo Cabrera continues to get ample playing time at the hot corner. Berti has hit well since coming off the IL, going 5-for-11 with two runs, an RBI and two stolen bases.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Swipes first bag of season

    Berti went 2-for-4 with a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 10-3 win over the Astros. Getting the start at third base and batting ninth, Berti nabbed his first steal of the year in the sixth inning. The veteran utility player has started two straight games since returning from a groin injury, both at third base, and with DJ LeMahieu (foot) still lacking a clear timeline for his return, Berti should be in line for consistent work around the Yankees' infield.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Resumes rehab assignment

    Berti (groin/back) is back in the lineup with Double-A Somerset on Thursday as he resumes his rehab assignment, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports. Berti couldn't play Wednesday due to a back issue but is back in there following a one-day absence. He's coming back from a groin strain and should rejoin the Yankees within the next few days.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Held out with back issue

    Manager Aaron Boone said Berti (groin) won't play in a scheduled rehab game with Double-A Somerset on Wednesday after his back locked up on him, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports. The hope is that it's only a one-day absence for Berti, but that wouldn't seem to be a given. He's played two games with Somerset already as he comes back from a groin strain. Berti had potentially been looking at a return from the 10-day injured list this weekend, but that might be delayed now.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: All set for rehab assignment

    Berti (groin) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Somerset on Sunday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Berti has been shut down for the last two weeks with a left groin strain but is ready to play in some rehab games to show he's over the injury. Because he hasn't missed that much time, Berti probably won't need a lengthy rehab assignment before being activated from the 10-day injured list.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Nearing rehab assignment

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Thursday that Berti (groin) could begin a rehab assignment Sunday, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports. Berti is nearly two weeks removed from suffering a left groin strain and is almost ready to test things out in game action. The utility player shouldn't need too many rehab games before rejoining the Yanks.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Resumes activity

    Berti (groin) has resumed hitting in the cage and is also taking part in defensive work and a running progression, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports. A left groin strain has kept Berti on the injured list since last Saturday, though it appears the 34-year-old has made some progress in his recovery. The goal is for him to begin a rehab assignment sometime next week, though it's unclear how many games he will play in the minors before rejoining the active roster.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Headed to injured list

    The Yankees placed Berti on the 10-day injured list Saturday with an adductor injury, Erik Boland of Newsday reports. Berti is slashing .211/.250/.211 across 21 plate appearances to start the season, and he will now be unavailable for at least the next 10 days. Kevin Smith was selected from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in a corresponding move in order to make up for lost depth in the Yankees' infield.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Takes seat in third straight game

    Berti is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks. Berti will stay on the bench for a third game in a row after making his first start with the Yankees in 4-3 win over the Astros on Sunday, when he went 1-for-4 with an RBI. Though DJ LeMahieu (foot) is facing an uncertain timeline for a return, Berti looks like he'll be ticketed for a utility role while the hot-hitting Oswaldo Cabrera operates as the club's primary third baseman.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Logs RBI in Yankees debut

    Berti went 1-for-4 with a run batted in during Sunday's win over the Astros. After being acquired by New York right before Opening Day, Berti was given a few days to get acclimated with the team before drawing the start Sunday. While he entered the lineup in the wake of Anthony Volpe's (illness) sudden absence, he's expected to work in at third base for the duration of DJ LeMahieu's (foot) IL stint. Berti's RBI came in the fourth, driving in Anthony Rizzo on a single off Astros starter J.P. France.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Joining lineup Sunday

    Berti was a late addition to the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros, and he's starting at third base and batting seventh. Berti was expected to start Saturday before ultimately being excluded from the lineup, but the reverse happened Sunday, as he was initially absent from the starting nine. The 34-year-old will make his first start with the Yankees, as Anthony Volpe was a late scratch due to an illness.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Not starting after all

    Berti isn't in the Yankees' lineup for Saturday's game against Houston despite manager Aaron Boone saying Friday that the utility man was slated to start in the contest. Berti was acquired in a trade with the Marlins on Wednesday but has yet to get into a game this season. Per Bryan Hoch of MLB.com, Boone said Friday that Berti was expected to start Saturday, but that has not come to pass. Instead, Oswaldo Cabrera is starting at third base for the third straight day, and it may be difficult for Boone to pull his bat from the lineup as long as he keeps swinging a hot bat -- through two contests, Cabrera has gone 6-for-9 with a home run and four RBI.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Slated to make first start Saturday

    Berti is expected to start for the Yankees against Houston on Saturday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. Berti was in consideration to start at third base Opening Day after the Yankees acquired him from Miami on Wednesday, but he ultimately gave way at the hot corner to Oswaldo Cabrera. Cabrera started the Yankees' second game as well and has been red hot to start the campaign with a .667/.667/1.111 slash line, a home run and four RBI through nine plate appearances, which may be making Berti's presence less urgent in the wake of DJ LeMahieu beginning the campaign on the injured list due to a foot injury. Nonetheless, Berti's versatility and speed should help him get into the lineup on a relatively frequent basis.

  • Yankees' Jon Berti: Traded to Yankees

    The Yankees acquired Berti from the Marlins on Wednesday in a three-team trade involving the Rays, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. John Cruz and Shane Sasaki were sent to the Marlins and Ben Rortvedt went to the Rays in the deal. Berti provides the Yankees with some protection in the infield with both DJ LeMahieu (foot) and Oswald Peraza (shoulder) sidelined, and he's capable of handling the outfield, as well. He could get some starts at third base early on in the season while LeMahieu is out.

  • Marlins' Jon Berti: Ready for utility role

    Berti got the start at third base and went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets. Batting leadoff, Berti drew a free pass off a tiring Jose Quintana in the fifth inning, advanced to third on a Dane Myers single and came around to score on a Jesus Sanchez groundout. Berti has seen most of his action this spring at the hot corner but has also played shortstop for a few games, batting .250 (7-for-28) with a 3:9 BB:K and one steal in two attempts. The 34-year-old will fill a utility role in the Marlins' infield again this season, and while his 16-for-22 performance on the basepaths in 2023 was disappointing, he did record an average sprint speed in the 95th percentile. A bounce-back performance in the category isn't out of the question after he led the majors with 41 steals in 2022.

  • Marlins' Jon Berti: Likely to get competition

    Berti isn't expected to remain atop the Marlins' depth chart at shortstop as the club looks at available free-agent options, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Tim Anderson is the biggest name still on the market at shortstop, with Amed Rosario, Nick Ahmed and Adalberto Mondesi also said to be on Miami's radar. Berti saw a career-high 424 plate appearances last season, playing 64 games at short but also 41 at third base, 15 at second base and 19 between the corner outfield spots, and the Marlins still view him as a better fit in a utility role. If the team elects not to bring in a free agent, Jacob Amaya and Vidal Brujan could also get looks this spring as potential starting options at shortstop.
