Marlins' C.J. Hinojosa: Headed to minors camp
The Marlins reassigned Hinojosa to minor-league camp Wednesday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports.
Hinojosa appeared in 15 games with the Marlins this spring, batting .296 with three RBI and a run scored over 27 at-bats while playing in a team-high 15 contests. The 28-year-old spent the entirety of the 2022 season with Triple-A El Paso before joining the Marlins' organization in the offseason, producing a .289 average with 17 home runs, 83 RBI, 69 runs and eight stolen bases over 461 at-bats in 122 games. Hinojosa has yet to make his major-league debut, but considering the extended run he got in the Grapefruit League, it's possible that he could be one of the first call-ups of the 2023 campaign....

Hinojosa was invited to the Padres' major-league spring training Sunday.
Hinojosa elected free agency in early November after spending the 2021 campaign in the Astros' minor-league system, and he'll now serve as a non-roster invitee this spring. He made 104 appearances at Triple-A Sugar Land and slashed .316/.351/.481 with 11 homers, 68 runs, 67 RBI and four stolen bases, and he should be in the mix to make his major-league debut at some point in 2022 if he continues to perform well in the minors....

C.J. Hinojosa: Cut by Milwaukee
The Brewers released Hinojosa on Tuesday, J.J. Cooper of Baseball America reports.
Acquired by Milwaukee last March in a deal that sent catcher Erik Kratz to San Francisco, Hinojosa spent the entire 2019 campaign at Double-A Biloxi, slashing .280/.338/.400 over 460 plate appearances.

Giants' C.J. Hinojosa: Hit with 50-game suspension
Hinojosa (Achilles) was suspended for 50 games Friday after testing positive for a drug of abuse for the second time, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Hinojosa is already nursing an Achilles injury he sustained last season, and now he'll be sidelined for the first couple months of the season even if he is healthy before then. He will likely play for Double-A Richmond once he's available again after batting .265 for them last season.... See More ... See Less

Giants' C.J. Hinojosa: Returns for Double-A Richmond
Hinojosa (quadriceps) came off the 7-day DL this week for Double-A Richmond. He is 2-for-9 with one strikeout, one walk and three RBI through two games.
The 22-year-old middle infielder has posted solid lines in the Northwest League in 2015 and in the California League in 2016, but his bat has yet to come alive at Double-A. He profiles as a potential utility infielder down the road.... See More ... See Less
Giants' C.J. Hinojosa: Held back with quad injury
Hinojosa, 22, was held back in extended spring training as he works his way back from a quad injury, MLB.com's Mike Rosenbaum reports.
A fringe prospect whose realistic ceiling is likely that of a utility infielder, Hinojosa posted a .296/.378/.442 slash line at High-A last year, but he struggled (.248/.312/.336) after a promotion to Double-A. Look for him to head back to Richmond once healthy.... See More ... See Less
