  • Giants' Paul DeJong: Playing time trending down

    DeJong is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

    DeJong is sitting for the third time in four games and has likely seen his brief run as the Giants' primary shortstop come to an end. Brandon Crawford was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, and rookie Casey Schmitt has also shown the ability to play shortstop on days the lefty-hitting Crawford exits the lineup against southpaws.

  • Giants' Paul DeJong: Sits amid struggles

    DeJong is not in the lineup Thursday at San Diego.

    Casey Schmitt will start at shortstop and bat ninth for the visiting Giants. DeJong has gone 3-for-25 (.120) through his first seven games with San Francisco after a 3-for-44 (.068) run with Toronto.

  • Giants' Paul DeJong: Homer, four RBI in Giants debut

    DeJong went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in Wednesday's 8-6 win over the Phillies.

    DeJong made an immediate impact in his Giants debut, launching a two-run homer off Michael Lorenzen in the fourth inning before putting San Francisco ahead 7-5 in the 10th inning with a two-run single. It was quite a performance from DeJong, who was DFA'd by the Blue Jays after going just 3-for-50 (.060) in his last 15 games. Overall, the 30-year-old DeJong's slashing .216/.273/.378 with 14 homers, 40 runs scored and 37 RBI across 355 plate appearances between San Francisco, Toronto and St. Louis this season. While it's been hard to rely on consistent fantasy production from DeJong, he could see a regular role with the Giants while Brandon Crawford (forearm) is sidelined.

  • Giants' Paul DeJong: Lands with San Francisco

    DeJong agreed to a major-league contract with the Giants on Tuesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

    DeJong has found a new home just one day after being released by the Blue Jays, who had acquired him from the Cardinals at the Aug. 1 trade deadline. The 30-year-old went 3-for-44 (.068) with zero extra-base hits in 13 games for Toronto, but he could immediately become the primary starter at shortstop in San Francisco, or at least share playing time with Johan Camargo. Brandon Crawford has had a rough year at age 36 and landed on the 10-day injured list Sunday because of a left forearm strain.

  • Paul DeJong: Hits free agency

    DeJong was released by the Blue Jays on Monday.

    DeJong lost his spot on Toronto's 40-man roster over the weekend and has now hit the free agent market after clearing waivers. He struggled mightily during his time with the Jays, but now that DeJong can be had at the prorated veteran minimum salary, he should land on his feet somewhere.

  • Blue Jays' Paul DeJong: Loses 40-man spot

    DeJong was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Saturday.

    DeJong was picked up from the Cardinals at the trade deadline to cover for Bo Bichette, who was sidelined with a knee injury. After DeJong slashed a miserable .068/.068/.068 in his 13 games with the Blue Jays, the team decided it wasn't worth keeping him around in a bench role now with Bichette returning from the injured list Saturday. DeJong has more name value than most players who wind up getting designated for assignment, but his .207/.277/.355 slash line over the last four seasons may keep interest muted on the waiver wire.

  • Blue Jays' Paul DeJong: On bench amid slump

    DeJong is not in the lineup Friday against the Reds.

    Santiago Espinal will start at shortstop and bat eighth. DeJong has gone 3-for-44 (.068) with zero walks and 18 strikeouts in 13 games since the Blue Jays acquired him from the Cardinals at the Aug. 1 trade deadline, and his tenure in the starting lineup with Toronto figures to be up with Bo Bichette (knee) expected back Saturday.

  • Blue Jays' Paul DeJong: Batting eighth in team debut

    DeJong is starting at shortstop and batting eighth in his Blue Jays debut Wednesday versus the Orioles.

    Acquired from the Cardinals ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline, DeJong should get something close to everyday starts at short for the Jays while Bo Bichette recovers from a bout of patellar tendinitis in his right knee. DeJong, 30, was slashing .233/.297/.412 with 13 home runs and four stolen bases through 81 games this season for St. Louis.

  • Blue Jays' Paul DeJong: Traded to Toronto

    Toronto acquired DeJong in a trade with the Cardinals on Tuesday, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    St. Louis will get right-hander Matt Svanson in return, per Jon Morosi of MLB Network. This could just be a depth move for the Blue Jays, or DeJong might be pressed into starting duties at shortstop after Bo Bichette left Monday's series opener against the Orioles due to right knee discomfort. DeJong's season slash lines are all over the map since he arrived in the majors in 2017, but he has good power and plays solid defense. The soon-to-be 30-year-old is making $9.2 million this season and carries a $12.5 million club option (or $2 million buyout) for the 2024 campaign.

  • Cardinals' Paul DeJong: On bench Thursday

    DeJong is not in the lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

    Taylor Motter will start at shortstop in DeJong's stead and will bat ninth. A potential trade chip for the Cardinals with the Aug. 1 deadline fast approaching, DeJong holds a .728 OPS with 13 home runs in 77 games this season.

  • Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Sitting Thursday

    DeJong isn't in the Cardinals' lineup Thursday against the Cubs, John Denton of reports.

    After going 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored Wednesday, DeJong will get a breather to begin St. Louis' four-game series against Chicago. Taylor Motter will start at shortstop in DeJong's place and bat ninth.

  • Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Goes deep in victory

    DeJong went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 7-2 win against the Cubs.

    DeJong plated the final runs for the Cardinals in the contest with his two-run shot to right field in the fifth inning. The long ball ended an 18-game homerless stretch for the shortstop during which he knocked in just five runs. DeJong is batting just .238 on the season, though his 13 homers rank fourth on the team.

  • Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Snags steal in loss

    DeJong went 2-for-3 with a double, one RBI and a stolen base in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Marlins.

    DeJong had gone just 6-for-29 (.207) over his previous 10 games, though he homered twice and drove in five runs in that span. His steal Monday was his first since May 23 and his fourth of the season. The shortstop is slashing .237/.309/.460 with 12 home runs, 27 RBI, 30 runs scored and eight doubles through 58 contests. He continues to play regularly, though he'll get the occasional day off when Tommy Edman gets a turn at shortstop.

  • Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Not in Sunday's lineup

    DeJong is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees, Lynn Worthy of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

  • Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Takes seat Wednesday

    DeJong is out of the lineup Wednesday versus the Astros.

  • Cardinals' Paul DeJong: Clubs 12th homer

    DeJong went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Astros.

    The shortstop launched a solo shot off Framber Valdez in the third inning -- the first homer the lefty had allowed since May 15. DeJong has four of his 12 long balls on the season in his last 12 games, a stretch in which he's slashing .267/.277/.578 despite a 40.4 percent strikeout rate that portends some serious regression ahead.
