  • Reds' Albert Almora: Sits in second straight

    Almora is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

    The Reds are giving Tyler Stephenson a start at designated hitter rather than behind the plate for Wednesday's series finale, which leaves no room for Almora in the outfield while Cincinnati goes with Tommy Pham, TJ Friedl and Tyler Naquin from left to right. As soon as Cincinnati returns Nick Senzel (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list, Almora will be a logical candidate to move off the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster.

  • Reds' Albert Almora: Takes seat Tuesday

    Almora is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

    TJ Friedl will draw a start in center field in place of Almora, who had been included in the lineup in four of the Reds' past five games. Almora will likely stick in a near-everyday role in the Cincinnati outfield until Nick Senzel (illness) is cleared to return from the COVID-19-related injured list.

  • Reds' Albert Almora: Filling in for Senzel

    Almora will start in center field and bat eighth in Monday's game against the Brewers.

    With four starts in the Reds' last five games, Almora appears to have settled in as the team's primary center fielder while Nick Senzel (illness) remains on the COVID-19-related injured list. Almora has done well in his limited action with the big club to date, going 4-for-12 with a double, a stolen base and two runs.

  • Reds' Albert Almora: Two hits in season debut

    Almora went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a strikeout during Thursday's 10-5 loss to the Brewers.

    Almora had his contract selected from Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday after Nick Senzel (undisclosed) and Tyler Naquin (undisclosed) landed on the COVID-19 list. The defensive-minded outfielder only has 92 plate appearances in the majors since 2019, so he's expected to be sent back to Triple-A when Senzel and Naquin are cleared to return.

  • Reds' Albert Almora: Joining big-league club

    Almora had his contract selected from Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday.

    The veteran outfielder will join the Reds as a depth piece with Nick Senzel (undisclosed) and Tyler Naquin (undisclosed) landing on the COVID-19 injured list. Almora missed the first couple weeks of the season with Louisville due to a shoulder injury and has an .852 OPS through 11 games.

  • Reds' Albert Almora: Debuts at Triple-A

    Almora (shoulder) started in center field and went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run scored Tuesday in Triple-A Louisville's 7-2 loss to Iowa.

    Almora made his debut for Louisville after getting off to a delayed start to the 2022 season while he recovered from a shoulder injury suffered late in spring training. Before reporting to Louisville, the veteran outfielder went 5-for-16 over four games with Low-A Daytona.

  • Reds' Albert Almora: Rehabbing at High-A

    Almora (shoulder) has appeared in four games for High-A Dayton since beginning a rehab assignment Tuesday, going 5-for-16 with a stolen base and two runs.

    Assuming Almora checks out fine coming out of the weekend, he could be activated from Triple-A Louisville's 7-day injured list within the next few days and make his debut for the Reds' top affiliate.

  • Reds' Albert Almora: Goes on minor-league IL

    Triple-A Louisville put Almora (shoulder) on its 7-day injured list Tuesday.

    Almora's bid for a spot on the Reds' Opening Day roster came to an end when he suffered a sore shoulder in a March 29 Cactus League game. He'll stick around in the organization with the Reds' Triple-A affiliate, hoping to impress enough in the minors once healthy to eventually earn a call-up to the big club.

  • Reds' Albert Almora: Reassigned to minor-league camp

    Almora (shoulder) was reassigned to minor-league spring training Wednesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

    Almora was a long shot to make Cincinnati's Opening Day roster, and he'll be sent to minor-league camp a day after he was removed from a Cactus League game due to shoulder soreness. He went 3-for-5 with three runs, a stolen base, a walk and a strikeout across four appearances this spring.

  • Reds' Albert Almora: Nursing sore shoulder

    Almora was removed from Tuesday's Cactus League game due to shoulder soreness, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Almora went 1-for-1 with a walk and a run scored prior to exiting Tuesday's exhibition versus the Rangers. The 27-year-old inked a minor-league deal with the Reds last week and is unlikely to make the Opening Day roster, even if he can quickly return from the shoulder issue.

  • Reds' Albert Almora: Signs with Cincy

    Almora signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Sunday that includes an invite to big-league camp.

    Almora joined the Mets on a minor-league deal for 2021 and ended up playing in 47 big-league games, though he hit horribly with a .115/.148/.173 slash line in 54 plate appearances. He should provide organizational depth in the outfield this season, assuming he fails to make the Opening Day roster.

  • Mets' Albert Almora: DFA'd Sunday

    The Mets designated Almora for assignment Sunday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    Almora had been serving primarily as a defensive replacement lately. He's hit .115/.148/.173 with no RBI in 54 plate appearances this season, numbers that are unlikely to command a waiver claim in the next couple days. His 40-man roster spot was filled by Sean Reid-Foley, whom the Mets activated off the 60-day injured list.

  • Mets' Albert Almora: Sent down Wednesday

    Almora was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Although Almora was recalled at the beginning of September as part of the active roster expansion, he didn't start any games and went 0-for-5 with a run and two strikeouts during sporadic appearances off the bench. The 27-year-old should see more consistent playing time in Syracuse, while Jose Peraza (finger) will serve as utility depth for the major-league club after he was reinstated from the 10-day injured list.

  • Mets' Albert Almora: Joins big club as September call-up

    The Mets recalled Almora from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    New York will use both of its extra spots on the expanded 28-man roster on outfielders, as Khalil Lee will also be joining Almora in making the move from Syracuse. The righty-hitting Almora could serve a short-side platoon mate for one of the three lefty-hitting regulars in the Mets outfield (Brandon Nimmo, Dominic Smith and Michael Conforto).

  • Mets' Albert Almora: Optioned to Triple-A

    Almora was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    Almora has shown very little in limited action this season, hitting .128/.163/.191 across 49 plate appearances. He's now hit just .219/.259/.346 over the last three years and looks like little more than organizational depth.

  • Mets' Albert Almora: Back in majors

    Almora was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Almora spent the past month in the minors and hit .275/.333/.450 in 20 games for Syracuse. The Mets' outfield is in good health, so Almora should fill a reserve role while in the majors.

  • Mets' Albert Almora: Sent to Triple-A

    Almora was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Almora was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in mid-June after he missed over a month with a left shoulder bruise, but he went 2-for-19 with two doubles and seven strikeouts across 12 appearances. He'll now attempt to sort things out in the minors after Jonathan Villar (calf) was reinstated from the injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Mets' Albert Almora: Activated, starting

    Almora (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Almora had been on the 10-day IL since May 12 due to a left shoulder bruise, but he recently joined the Mets for their road trip. He'll start in center field and bat eighth in Saturday's nightcap against the Nationals, and he could split time with Kevin Pillar in center field until Brandon Nimmo (finger) is cleared to return.

  • Mets' Albert Almora: Expected to return Saturday

    Almora (shoulder) is expected to be reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

    Almora joined the Mets at Nationals Park on Friday, so it wasn't very surprising when manager Luis Rojas announced that the team plans to activate the 27-year-old Saturday. He appeared in eight rehab games with Triple-A Syracuse and could split playing time with Kevin Pillar in center field while Brandon Nimmo (finger) remains sidelined.

  • Mets' Albert Almora: Joins Mets for road trip

    Almora (shoulder) has joined the Mets at Nationals Park on Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Almora hasn't been activated ahead of Friday's matchup against Washington, but his presence with the team signals that he has completed his rehab assignment and could be reinstated from the 10-day injured list soon. The 27-year-old has been sidelined since late May, but he recently appeared in eight rehab games with Triple-A Syracuse and hit .231 with a home run, three runs and two RBI during that time. Almora will go through a full baseball activities progression Friday and could be activated Saturday, DiComo reports.
