Rays' Raimel Tapia: Joins MLB roster
The Rays selected Tapia's contract from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
With Brandon Lowe (knee) on the injured list and facing an extended absence, Tapia will be added to the roster to give the team an extra bat off the bench. Tapia has slashed .230/.308/.338 with 13 RBI across 157 plate appearances with the Red Sox and Brewers this season.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Raimel Tapia: Inks minors deal with Tampa Bay
Tapia signed a minor-league contract with the Rays on Thursday.
Tapia was cut loose by the Brewers in late July. The 29-year-old outfielder has struggled to a .256/.296/.369 slash line in 187 major-league games since being traded away from Colorado in the spring of 2022.... See More ... See Less
Raimel Tapia: Hits open market
Tapia elected free agency after clearing waivers Monday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Tapia spent just over five weeks in the Milwaukee organization and slashed .173/.267/.288 over 20 games with the big club before he was cast off the 40-man roster Saturday when the Brewers called up outfield prospect Sal Frelick from Triple-A Nashville. Rather than reporting to Nashville, the 29-year-old Tapia will now look to catch on elsewhere on a minor-league or major-league deal.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Raimel Tapia: Designated for assignment
Tapia was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Saturday.
Tapia had been with the Brewers since mid-June, hitting an unimpressive .173/.267/.288 in 20 games. He'll exit the roster as the Brewers clear space to call up prospect Sal Frelick.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Raimel Tapia: On bench Friday
Tapia is not in the starting lineup Friday versus Atlanta.
Tapia will take a seat after he went 1-for-8 with a run scored and a stolen base while starting two out of three against the Phillies. Blake Perkins will draw the start in right field and bat eighth in the series opener with Atlanta.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Raimel Tapia: Sitting, but playing more vs. RHPs
Tapia is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.
Though he'll take a seat Wednesday with southpaw Cristopher Sanchez on the hill for Philadelphia, the lefty-hitting Tapia may have supplanted Blake Perkins and Tyrone Taylor as the Brewers' preferred option in right field versus right-handed pitching. Tapia went 2-for-8 with a stolen base and a run scored while starting against right-handers Ben Lively and Aaron Nola in the past two contests, while Taylor and Perkins were on the bench for both of those games....

Brewers' Raimel Tapia: Logs first homer as Brewer
Tapia went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Wednesday's 5-1 loss against the Diamondbacks.
After starting his tenure in Milwaukee 0-for-10 with five strikeouts across his first four games, Tapia's first hit as a Brewer was a solo homer off Zac Gallen. Though Tapia has gotten off to a rough start with his new team, prospective fantasy managers should expect him to pick things up moving forward and return to numbers closer to his .264/.333/.368 slash line with the Red Sox prior to his release....

Brewers' Raimel Tapia: Signs with team, added to roster
The Brewers activated Tapia for Wednesday's game in Minnesota after signing him to a one-year contract, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Now that his contract with Milwaukee has been finalized, Tapia will likely settle in as a fourth outfielder behind Christian Yelich, Joey Wiemer and Brian Anderson. Before being released by the Red Sox on Sunday, the 29-year-old Tapia slashed .264/.333/.368 with a home run and six stolen bases across 96 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Raimel Tapia: Lands with Milwaukee
Tapia agreed to a major-league contract with the Brewers on Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
After being released by the Red Sox on Sunday, Tapia will latch on with Milwaukee and join the team ahead of Tuesday's game against the Twins. The 29-year-old outfielder is slashing .264/.333/.368 with 10 RBI through 96 plate appearances this season. He'll provide the Brewers with additional outfield depth and could receive a fair amount of plate appearances against righties (.815 OPS vs RHP).... See More ... See Less
Raimel Tapia: Heads to open market
The Red Sox released Tapia on Sunday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
After designating Tapia for assignment Monday, the Red Sox weren't able to find a trade partner willing to take on the money remaining on his one-year, $2 million deal. Tapia went unclaimed off waivers, too, and rather than having him stick around at Triple-A Worcester as outfield depth, the Red Sox will allow the 29-year-old to test his luck on the open market. Given that he has parts of eight years of MLB experience under his belt and is capable of playing all three outfield spots, Tapia shouldn't have too much difficulty securing a minor-league deal, if not a new MLB contract....

Red Sox's Raimel Tapia: Moved off 40-man roster
The Red Sox designated Tapia for assignment Monday, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
Tapia already seemed like a candidate to lose his roster spot later this week when Adam Duvall (wrist) likely returns from the 60-day injured list Friday, but the Red Sox ended up moving on from Tapia a few days early to make room for infielder Christian Arroyo, who was reinstated from the 10-day IL ahead of Monday's game versus the Rays. The 29-year-old Tapia has hit .264/.333/.368 with one home run and six stolen bases this season. Under contract on a modest one-year, $2 million deal, Tapia could be claimed off waivers if another team views him as a quality fourth or fifth outfielder.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Raimel Tapia: Back on bench after three-hit day
Tapia is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.
After starting in four of the past five games and going 3-for-5 with a pair of RBI and two runs in Tuesday's 9-8 loss, Tapia will retreat to the bench. Despite the recent uptick in playing time, Tapia still looks like the Red Sox's fourth outfielder now that all of Alex Verdugo, Masataka Yoshida and Jarren Duran are all available.... See More ...

Red Sox's Raimel Tapia: Batting leadoff
Tapia is starting in right field and batting leadoff Tuesday versus the Reds, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
Tapia will fill in for Alex Verdugo in both spots while the latter receives some rest. In 35 contests this season, Tapia sports a .659 OPS with one home run and five stolen bases.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Raimel Tapia: Heads back to bench
Tapia is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.
Tapia went 3-for-12 with a walk and an RBI while starting in each of Boston's last three games, but he'll be back on the bench for the series finale. While all of Masataka Yoshida, Jarren Duran and Alex Verdugo are available for the Red Sox, Tapia's playing time will likely be somewhat sporadic while he serves as the team's fourth outfielder....

Red Sox's Raimel Tapia: Collects two hits in win
Tapia went 2-for-5 with an RBI in Friday's 7-2 win over the Diamondbacks.
Tapia's second-inning single plated Connor Wong, which turned out to be the winning run. Around his appearances as a pinch hitter and mid-game replacement, Tapia has hit safely in 11 consecutive starts, going 14-for-43 (.325). He started in center field Friday and could steal at-bats from the slumping Jarren Duran (0-for-19).... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Raimel Tapia: Picks up steal Saturday
Tapia went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Padres.
Tapia was on the front end of a double steal in the second inning before scoring on Enmanuel Valdez's home run. While he's hit safely in nine of his last 12 contests, Tapia doesn't have a multi-hit effort in May. He's up to a .246/.313/.344 slash line with a home run, seven RBI, 11 runs scored and five steals through 67 plate appearances this season. He remains in a reserve role in Boston's outfield....

Red Sox's Raimel Tapia: Sits in second straight
Tapia is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.
Tapia concluded the past weekend with his fourth consecutive start in the corner outfield, but he's moved back to the bench for both of Boston's first two games with Atlanta. Though he's currently sitting on a five-game hitting streak and has made an impact as a baserunner lately, Tapia is expected to remain on the bench more often than not with Jarren Duran having established himself as a regular in the outfield alongside Masataka Yoshida and Alex Verdugo....

Red Sox's Raimel Tapia: Gets start Sunday
Tapia will start in left field and bat third in Sunday's game against Philadelphia, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports. The backup outfielder will make a fourth consecutive start.
Tapia twice filled in for ailing right fielder Alex Verdugo (illness) and gave left fielder Masataka Yoshida a rest Saturday, when Verdugo returned to action. Boston manager Alex Cora is hoping to take advantage of Tapia's productive run as a starter. He had three hits, two walks, a double, three steals and five runs scored over the last three games....

Red Sox's Raimel Tapia: In right field again
Tapia is starting in right field and batting leadoff for the Red Sox on Friday in Philadelphia.
He's filling in for Alex Verdugo (illness) for the second day in a row. Tapia stole two bases and scored three runs in Thursday's win over the Blue Jays.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Raimel Tapia: Two steals in big win
Tapia went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, one RBI, two stolen bases and three runs scored in Thursday's 11-5 win over the Blue Jays.
Tapia has logged all three of his steals this season in three games in May, going 4-for-12 (.333) with two doubles over his last four contests. He'll need to keep up this improved hitting to start clawing back some playing time -- he filled in for Alex Verdugo (illness) in Thursday's game, so there's not a long-term path to playing time opening up yet. Tapia is batting .235 with a .716 OPS, one home run, three steals, five RBI and eight runs scored through 39 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
