Top Joseph Odom News

  • Rays' Joe Odom: Clears waivers

    Odom will remain in the Rays organization after he went unclaimed off waivers Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The 29-year-old backstop will report to the Rays' alternate site after accepting an outright assignment. After earning a spot on Tampa Bay's Opening Day roster, Odom appeared in two games before he was cast off the 40-man roster over the weekend.

  • Rays' Joe Odom: DFA'd by Tampa Bay

    Odom was designated for assignment by the Rays on Friday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

    The 29-year-old's contract was selected by the Rays last weekend, and he went 0-for-2 in two games during his brief time with the team. Even if he remains in the organization, Odom is unlikely to rejoin the big-league club while Mike Zunino and Francisco Mejia remain healthy.

  • Rays' Joe Odom: Contract selected

    Odom's contract was selected by the Rays on Saturday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

    Odom should serve as the third catcher behind Mike Zunino and Francisco Mejia during his time with the team but probably won't find his way into too many games. Ryan Sherriff landed on the restricted list in a corresponding move.

  • Rays' Joe Odom: Sent to minor-league camp

    The Rays reassigned Odom to their minor-league camp Thursday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

    Odom got the chance to make his big-league debut with the Mariners in 2020, appearing in 18 games when the club was short on catching depth. Since Tampa Bay has Mike Zunino and Francisco Mejia on the 40-man roster, plus a more experienced non-roster invitee in Kevan Smith (back) in camp, Odom never had much hope of spending Opening Day with the big-league club.

  • Rays' Joseph Odom: Invited to spring training

    Odom signed a minor-league contract with the Rays on Wednesday as a non-roster invitee, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Odom made his major-league debut with the Mariners in 2020, but he sputtered to a .128/.209/.128 slash line with two RBI over 39 at-bats. He'll get to compete for a roster spot with the Rays in 2021 during spring training.

  • Joseph Odom: No longer with Seattle

    The Mariners declared Odom a free agent Sunday, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.

    Odom will look for work elsewhere after he appeared in 18 games for the Mariners in 2020, slashing .128/.209/.128 in 44 plate appearances. Seattle dropped the 28-year-old catcher from its 40-man roster in October.

  • Mariners' Joseph Odom: Dropped from 40-man roster

    Odom was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday.

    Odom got into the first 18 games of his MLB career this season but did very little with the opportunity, hitting .128/.209/.128 while striking out at a 45.5 percent clip. He'll remain in an organizational depth role for the Mariners heading into next season.

  • Mariners' Joseph Odom: Retreats to reserve role

    Odom is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers.

    Odom will take a seat for the third time in four games in favor of Luis Torrens, whom the Mariners acquired from the Padres last week ahead of the Aug. 31 trade deadline. The 24-year-old Torrens is expected to serve as the Mariners' primary backstop the rest of the way, so Odom is poised to stick in the No. 2 catcher role he's filled throughout the season.

  • Mariners' Joseph Odom: Draws second straight start

    Odom will start at catcher and will bat ninth Monday against the Angels.

    After Austin Nola was dealt to the Padres on Sunday, Odom temporarily finds himself atop the Mariners' catching depth chart. Though he'll pick up his second straight start Monday, Odom could soon face competition from 24-year-old Luis Torrens, who was one of the young players Seattle received from San Diego in the deal. Odom is four years older and has been more of a defensive-minded catcher throughout his career, so the rebuilding Mariners would be incentivized to give the higher-upside option in Torrens a longer look in an everyday role.

  • Mariners' Joseph Odom: First big-league hit drives in run

    Odom went 1-for-2 with an RBI single and one run scored in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Astros.

    After being sent to the Mariners' alternate training site Aug. 2, Odom was recalled to the 28-man roster Friday. The catcher did not play in either of the first two games of the weekend series but got the nod Sunday and made the most of it. He collected his first hit and RBI of his major-league career when a ground ball to right field drove in Evan White. He scored his first career run three batters later when Kyle Lewis drove him in with a single to center. Odom is expected to continue to back up Austin Nola behind the plate going forward.

  • Mariners' Joseph Odom: Recalled by Mariners

    Odom was recalled from the Mariners' alternate training site Friday.

    Odom was demoted to alternate camp at the beginning of August, but he'll rejoin the major-league roster after Joe Hudson was optioned to the alternate training site in a corresponding move. Odom should serve as catching depth behind Austin Nola.

  • Mariners' Joseph Odom: Gets demoted

    The Mariners optioned Odom to their alternate training site ahead of Sunday's game against the Athletics.

    Seattle elected to prioritize bullpen depth over a third catcher in Odom, as the team recalled reliever Erik Swanson in a corresponding move. After having his contract selected by the Mariners on Tuesday, Odom appeared in two games, going 0-for-4 with a walk and three strikeouts.

  • Mariners' Joe Odom: Contract selected by Seattle

    Odom had his contract selected by the Mariners on Tuesday and was added to the 30-man roster.

    The 28-year-old spent most of 2019 at Double-A Arkansas but had a strong showing in 17 games with Triple-A Tacoma, posting an .861 OPS with seven extra-base hits in 69 plate appearances. According to Greg Johns of MLB.com, Odom will enter Tuesday's starting lineup with Austin Nola (undisclosed) being a late scratch.
