Top Lewis Brinson News

  • Astros' Lewis Brinson: Fails to win roster spot

    Brinson was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Brinson was in camp on a minor-league deal, and while he managed an .842 OPS in six spring games, that evidently wasn't enough to convince the Astros to select his contract. A career .199/.248/.323 hitter in parts of five seasons in the majors, Brinson will have to show some growth in the minors before earning his next opportunity.

  • Astros' Lewis Brinson: Signs minor-league deal with Astros

    Brinson joined the Astros on a minor-league deal Saturday, freelance reporter Michael Schwab reports.

    Brinson was once a big enough prospect to headline a trade for Christian Yelich, but he simply hasn't come close to putting things together at the big-league level. In 341 career MLB games, he's hit just .199/.248/.323. While he did manage a career-best 24.8 percent strikeout rate last season, he still hit an uninspiring .226/.263/.376. Now 27 years old, Brinson faces an uphill battle, but it's possible the Astros coax enough out of him for him to earn a bench spot.

  • Lewis Brinson: DFA'd by Miami

    Brinson was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Brinson was a highly-touted prospect when acquired from the Brewers in January of 2018, but he's failed to live up to that potential. The 27-year-old appeared in 89 games for the Marlins last season and hit .226/.263/.376 with nine home runs, 33 RBI and 24 runs in 89 big-league contests. The move creates room on Miami's 40-man roster for Joey Wendle, who was acquired from Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

  • Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Idle Sunday

    Brinson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Phillies.

    Miami has little at stake in its season finale, so manager Don Mattingly will extend a breather to Brinson and a few of the team's other everyday players. Unless he makes a cameo off the bench as a pinch hitter, Brinson will wrap up the season with a .226/.263/.376 slash line to go with nine home runs, a stolen base, 33 RBI and 24 runs across 290 plate appearances.

    Brinson remains on the bench for Friday's game against Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

  • Marlins' Lewis Brinson: Goes yard twice Wednesday

    Brinson went 3-for-4 with a walk, two home runs and three RBI in Wednesday's 7-0 win over the Padres.

    The 27-year-old has caught fire in August. Brinson has produced multi-hit performances in six of 11 games so far this month, batting .390 (16-for-41) with four doubles, four homers and 15 RBI. It's taken a while -- Brinson is closing in on 1,000 career plate appearances in the majors -- but the 2012 first-round pick and centerpiece of the Christian Yelich trade a few years ago might finally be turning into the kind of offensive force his elite athleticism suggested he could become.
