Yankees' Jake Bauers: Sent to minor-league camp
Bauers was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday.
Bauers finished the 2022 campaign in the minors with New York and re-signed in December as a non-roster invitee. He had a .758 OPS for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and will be back with the affiliate to open this season.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Jake Bauers: Re-ups with Yankees
Bauers agreed Wednesday with the Yankees on a minor-league contract, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
After electing free agency in November, Bauers will return to the Yankees organization for the 2023 campaign. The Yankees acquired Bauers from the Reds last June, with the 27-year-old slashing .226/.352/.406 with five home runs and four stolen bases over 128 plate appearances before being shut down in late July with an unspecified injury. Bauers should be back to full strength for spring training.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Jake Bauers: Acquired by Yankees
Bauers was traded from the Reds to the Yankees on Friday in exchange for cash.
Once a top prospect in the Rays system, Bauers has never had success in the majors (career .213 hitter) and was hitting .135/.276/.271 with three home runs in 29 games at Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jake Bauers: Sent to minor-league camp
Bauers was reassigned to minor-league camp Wednesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Bauers served as a non-roster invitee to begin spring training, and he went 6-for-17 with two homers, eight runs, five RBI, four walks and seven strikeouts across eight Cactus League appearances. The 26-year-old will begin the season at Triple-A Louisville but has some defensive versatility making him an option as a big-league depth piece in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Jake Bauers: Invited to Reds' camp
Bauers joined the Reds as a non-roster invitee Monday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Bauers is still just 26 years old and was considered a fairly interesting prospect not too long ago, but he's come nowhere close to living up to his potential thus far. In 328 career major-league games, he's hit just .213/.307/.348, a line that's nowhere close to good enough for a player limited to first base and the outfield corners. While it's theoretically possible he could figure things out for the Reds in 2022 and make good on his promise, it's far more likely that he remains a player undeserving of regular at-bats at the highest level, as his career 5.5 percent barrel rate indicates that he simply doesn't make good enough contact to be a corner slugger....

Mariners' Jake Bauers: Cast off 40-man roster
The Mariners outrighted Bauers to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday.
After being acquired from Cleveland on June 10, Bauers proceeded to hit .220 with two home runs and six stolen bases across 182 at-bats with the Mariners. The lack of power from a corner-outfield bat made it tough for the Mariners to justify keeping Bauers on the 40-man roster heading into the offseason, and none of baseball's other 29 organizations were willing to dedicate a spot to the 26-year-old either when he was available on waivers. Bauers should still get the chance to compete for a bench role with the Mariners in spring training, assuming he doesn't elect free agency.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Jake Bauers: Homers in win
Bauers went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Royals.
Bauers absolutely clobbered a first-pitch fastball from Jackson Kowar that sailed 460 feet to right field to extend the Mariners' lead to 5-0 in the third. The long ball was his first hit since Sept. 5. He had been hitless in his previous 16 at-bats. His recent struggles are in line with his overall production on the season, as he's slashing .216/.294/.286 with four homers, 19 RBI, 25 runs scored, six steals and 29:73 BB:K over 303 plate appearances....

Mariners' Jake Bauers: Delivers in extras Sunday
Bauers entered Sunday's extra-innings win over the Diamondbacks as a pinch hitter in the top of the 11th and laced a two-run double while also subsequently scoring a run.
Bauers was called on to hit for pitcher Yohan Ramirez in the 11th and the Mariners already holding a 7-3 lead, and his clutch two-bagger plated Tom Murphy and Abraham Toro to give Seattle even more breathing room. Bauers' playing time remains relatively sparse, but he's now reached safely in five of the last seven games he's appeared in.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Jake Bauers: Riding pine Wednesday
Bauers isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Astros.
Bauers has gone 2-for-9 with two walks and two strikeouts across his last six appearances, and he'll head to the bench for the fifth time in the last eight games. Jose Marmolejos will start in left field and bat sixth.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Jake Bauers: Not starting Monday
Bauers isn't starting Monday's game against the Astros.
Even with right-hander Luis Garcia on the mound for the Astros, Bauers will retreat to the bench for the third time in the last four games. Jose Marmolejos will start in left field and bat sixth.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Jake Bauers: Slides into large-side platoon role
Bauers will start in left field and bat ninth Sunday against the Royals.
After Jake Fraley (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, Bauers appears set to fill the large side of a platoon in left field with Dylan Moore. Since being acquired via trade from Cleveland on June 10, Bauers has hit .253 with one home run, 10 RBI, 15 runs and four stolen bases in 52 games.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Jake Bauers: Two hits, stolen base
Bauers went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a stolen base in a 5-3 win against the Athletics on Monday.
Bauers singled in the third inning and plated the go-ahead runs with his ninth-inning single before stealing second. The reserve outfielder has performed well in his last two starts and is slashing a solid .296/.387/.333 with three stolen bases in August.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Jake Bauers: On base thrice in win
Bauers went 2-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base and two runs in an extra-innings win over the Rangers on Thursday.
The outfielder made plenty of noise out of the eighth spot in the order, mustering his first multi-hit effort since Aug. 1. Despite the solid output Thursday, it's worth noting Bauers sat for each of the previous six games, so a lack of consistent playing time continues to cap his fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Jake Bauers: Swipes second bag of season
Bauers went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a win over the Yankees on Sunday.
Bauers remains mired in an 0-for-11 slump that encompasses his last five games, but he was at least able to do something productive with his one appearance on the basepaths Sunday. The 25-year-old's starting assignment in right field was his first since Tuesday, and he's likely to continue drawing only semi-regular playing time against right-handed starters.... See More ...

Mariners' Jake Bauers: Sitting again
Bauers is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays.
Jake Fraley's return for the COVID-19 injured list appears to have closed the door on Bauers' time as a near-everyday player in the Seattle lineup. He'll be on the bench for the fourth time in six games Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Jake Bauers: Multi-hit effort in loss
Bauers went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.
Bauers' pair of singles marked his first hits since July 24, a game which also featured a two-hit effort. The 25-year-old continues to see a relatively steady dose of action against right-handed pitching, but his .219/.285/.283 slash line largely keeps him a fantasy afterthought with the exception of very deep formats....

Mariners' Jake Bauers: Remains on bench
Bauers will sit Saturday against the Rangers.
Bauers finds himself on the bench for the second game in a row and the third time in four games. Both of his last two absences have come against lefties like Saturday's starter Taylor Hearn. Dylan Moore starts in left field in his place.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Jake Bauers: Takes seat Friday
Bauers isn't in the lineup Friday against the Rangers.
Bauers will be out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games after he went 0-for-1 with a walk Wednesday. Dylan Moore will shift to left field while Abraham Toro starts at the keystone.... See More ... See Less

Mariners' Jake Bauers: Stealing starts from Shed Long
Bauers will start in left field and bat ninth Sunday against the Athletics.
Bauers may have supplanted Shed Long as Seattle's top option in left field; he'll pick up his third start in a row Sunday, while Long sticks on the bench for the second straight day. The 25-year-old played a key part in Saturday's 5-4 win, going 2-for-3 with a pair of singles, a walk and a run.... See More ... See Less
