Padres' Brett Sullivan: Back in majors
The Padres recalled Sullivan from Triple-A El Paso on Friday.
After being optioned to Triple-A on Aug. 2, Sullivan will return to the majors as extra catcher depth behind Gary Sanchez and Luis Campusano. Sullivan has slashed just .170/.184/.298 in 49 major-league plate appearances and is unlikely to see consistent playing time.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Brett Sullivan: Optioned to El Paso
San Diego optioned Sullivan to Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday.
Sullivan did not appear in a game during his latest brief stint with the Padres and has batted just .170/.184/.298 across 49 major-league plate appearances this year. Luis Campusano and Gary Sanchez remain locked in as the catching tandem in San Diego.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Brett Sullivan: Recalled from El Paso
The Padres recalled Sullivan from Triple-A El Paso on Saturday.
Sullivan is slashing just .170/.184/.298 through 49 plate appearances in the majors this season, but he's caught fire in Triple-A to the tune of a 1.028 OPS since July 1. Despite his hot bat, Sullivan will likely remain stuck behind Luis Campusano and Gary Sanchez on the depth chart. Taylor Kohlwey was optioned to El Paso in a corresponding move.... See More ...

Padres' Brett Sullivan: Optioned to Triple-A
San Diego optioned Sullivan to Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday.
Gary Sanchez was claimed off waivers from the Mets on Monday and will officially join the Padres ahead of Tuesday night's series opener in Miami to presumably share time behind the plate with Austin Nola. Sullivan, 29, had slashed just .170/.184/.298 through 21 games this season with the Friars.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Brett Sullivan: Heads to bench Sunday
Sullivan is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees.
Though he'll take a seat in the series finale, Sullivan appears to have at least moved into a timeshare at catcher with Austin Nola, who is behind the dish Sunday. Sullivan owns a putrid .495 OPS on the season, but that's still more than 60 points better than the mark Nola has provided (.443) over 69 more plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Brett Sullivan: Homers, drives in four in win
Sullivan went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and four RBI in Wednesday's 7-1 win over Cincinnati.
Sullivan was the unlikely hero in Wednesday's victory. In his fifth MLB start, the 29-year-old rookie got the Padres' offense started with a two-run double in the second inning before cranking a two-run homer off Alex Young in the fourth. In two at-bats, Sullivan recorded the first extra-base hit, home run and RBI of his major-league career. He's now 4-for-17 with a walk this season. Sullivan could see additional opportunities backing up Austin Nola behind the plate while Luis Campusano (thumb) remains sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Brett Sullivan: Making big-league debut Tuesday
Sullivan will start at catcher and bat ninth in his MLB debut Tuesday against Atlanta.
The 29-year-old could get a handful of starts behind the plate for the Padres while Luis Campusano recovers from a left thumb sprain. Campusano was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday and Austin Nola is on the bench Tuesday. Sullivan was sporting an .800 OPS with one home run and three stolen bases through nine games this season at Triple-A El Paso.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Brett Sullivan: Called up by Friars
Sullivan was promoted from Triple-A El Paso by the Padres on Sunday.
The 29-year-old has been called up for his first taste of the big leagues, with Luis Campusano dealing with a jammed thumb. Campusano has avoided the injured list for now, so it could be a brief run as San Diego's No. 2 backstop for Sullivan.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Brett Sullivan: Sent to minors
The Padres optioned Sullivan to Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday.
He'll miss out on a spot on the Padres' Opening Day roster with the Friars electing to go with Luis Campusano as their No. 2 catcher behind Austin Nola. Sullivan, 29, slashed .250/.318/.350 over 11 games during Cactus League play.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Brett Sullivan: Dealt to San Diego
The Padres acquired Sullivan and outfielder Korry Howell from the Brewers on Wednesday in exchange for catcher Victor Caratini, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
Much like Austin Nola, Sullivan is primarily a catcher, but one that also possesses the athleticism to play the corner outfield or corner infield in a pinch as needed. His addition allows the Padres to maintain their organizational catching depth with Caratini headed to Milwaukee, though Sullivan will face a tougher path to earning a role in the big leagues in San Diego. In addition to Nola, the Padres have two other catchers (Jorge Alfaro and Luis Campusano) on the 40-man roster who are both presumably ahead of Sullivan in the pecking order. Sullivan is expected to report to Triple-A El Paso with his new organization.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Brett Sullivan: Won't make Opening Day roster
The Brewers optioned Sullivan to Triple-A Nashville on Monday.
The versatile Sullivan had been hopeful to break camp with the Brewers as a No. 3 catcher and reserve option in the infield and outfield, but the fact that he has minor-league options remaining likely worked against him in his bid for the Opening Day roster. The 28-year-old will thus have to wait longer to make his MLB debut, though the fact that he possesses a spot on the 40-man roster bodes well for his chances of earning a call-up if the Brewers' position-player depth is tested at any point....

Brewers' Brett Sullivan: Signs with Brewers
Sullivan agreed to a one-year, major-league contract with the Brewers on Monday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
The news of a major-league deal comes as something of a surprise, as Sullivan is a 27-year-old with zero major-league experience. He wasn't particularly good at the Triple-A level last season, either, hitting .223/.302/.375 across 90 games, but the Brewers evidently feel he adds something as an extra catcher who can also provide cover at the infield and outfield corners....

Rays' Brett Sullivan: Added to 60-man pool
Sullivan has been added to the Rays' 60-man player pool, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
He will provide some catching and outfield depth, but is unlikely to be called up to the big club, barring multiple injuries ahead of him, particularly at catcher. Sullivan hit .280/.333/.459 with 10 home runs and 21 steals in 403 plate appearances at Double-A last year, but he did that as a 25-year-old who was 1.3 years older than the average player at that level....

Rays' Brett Sullivan: Hitting well at High-A
Sullivan is hitting .292/.318/.426 with two home runs and eight stolen bases (nine attempts) in 209 at-bats with High-A Charlotte.
The 23-year-old has improved his offensive production at each minor-league level. Tampa Bay's catching prospect provides good power and speed for the position as he hit 13 home runs and stole 17 bases in 470 at-bats with Low-A Bowling Green last season. Behind the plate, Sullivan has caught 13 runners attempting to steal in 41 attempts and has also allowed seven passed balls.... See More ... See Less
