Mariners' Wyatt Mathisen: Designated for assignment
Mathisen was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Friday.
Mathisen never made his way up to Seattle's 26-man roster after being acquired from the Diamondbacks on June 24. He'll once again go on the waiver wire, where he could attract interest from clubs looking for organizational infield depth. Mathisen slashed an underwhelming .119/.255/.190 across 51 big-league plate appearances with Arizona earlier this season.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Wyatt Mathisen: Acquired by Seattle
The Mariners acquired Mathisen from the Rays on Thursday in exchange for cash considerations.
Mathisen, who began the season with the Diamondbacks, will be moving on to his third organization in just over the month after the Rays were quick to drop him from their 40-man roster. The 27-year-old should have a clearer path to getting a look at the big-league level with Seattle, but he's expected to report to Triple-A Tacoma initially. Over 18 games with the Rays' Triple-A affiliate in Durham, Mathisen slashed .288/.344/.525 with three home runs and nine RBI.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Wyatt Mathisen: Designated for assignment Tuesday
Mathisen was designated for assignment Tuesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Mathisen was acquired from Arizona on May 16 but failed to crack Tampa Bay's 26-man roster during just over a month with the organization. With top prospect Wander Franco being added to the 26-man and 40-man rosters Tuesday, Mathisen ended up on the outside looking in. Mathisen could attract interest on the waiver wire from teams searching for infield depth but is highly unlikely to find a major role with a big-league club anytime soon.... See More ... See Less

Merrill Kelly (COVID-19 protocols) was activated from the injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less

Diamondbacks' Wyatt Mathisen: Starts at 1B

The righty-hitting Mathisen was the second player to slot in at first base since the Diamondbacks placed Christian Walker (oblique) on the injured list. He faced left-hander Jesus Luzardo. The switch-hitting Asdrubal Cabrera got the nod Monday against a righty, but he's also getting starts at second and third base. The lefty-hitting Pavin Smith should also fill in when a right-hander is the mound. Mathisen has made a couple of starts this season and is 1-for-11 (.091) with two walks and six strikeouts....

Diamondbacks' Wyatt Mathisen: Vying for utility role
Mathisen started at first base and went 1-for-2 with a double and two RBI in Monday's spring game against San Francisco.
The Diamondbacks are evaluating several infielders for a utility role in 2021, with Mathisen getting plenty of at-bats as part of that process. He's made an appearance in each of the last eight Cactus League games, going 5-for-14 with three walks, five RBI and two runs scored. Matheson has served at designated hitter (one game), first base (five) and third base (three). Josh Rojas (7-for-20, 3 HR), Josh VanMeter (2-for-17) and Andrew Young (1-for-12) are in the utility mix as well.... See More ... See Less
