  • Rangers' Meibrys Viloria: Shows power in loss

    Viloria went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and two total runs scored in Tuesday's 8-2 loss to the Orioles. Viloria has only recorded five triples in nine professional seasons, so a cycle was never likely for him Tuesday. Nonetheless he was the Rangers' best hitter in this contest, with his three-hit effort capped off by a ninth-inning homer. The catcher is batting .250 with two homers, three RBI and seven runs scored through 34 plate appearances in the majors this year.

  • Rangers' Meibrys Viloria: Clubs homer in loss

    Viloria went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, a walk and two total runs scored in Saturday's 9-7 loss to the Angels. Jonah Heim served as the designated hitter Saturday, allowing Viloria a rare start behind the dish. The 25-year-old Viloria capitalized on it with his first extra-base hit of the season, a mammoth 421-foot homer to center field that left the bat at 105.2 mph. It was the catcher's second career big-league homer -- his only other one came in 2019 with the Royals. He's still slashing just .174/.345/.304 with five runs scored in nine contests, and a minimal-usage backup role is likely to keep him off the fantasy radar in most formats.

  • Rangers' Meibrys Viloria: Gets call to majors

    The Rangers selected Viloria's contract from Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday. Viloria will join the 26-man active roster as a replacement for Sam Huff, who had been serving as the primary backup to top catcher Jonah Heim. Huff had also received some playing time at first base and designated hitter, but his opportunities to pick up starts were bound to take a hit with the Rangers bringing Mitch Garver (illness) back from the COVID-19-related injured list Tuesday. The Rangers still want Huff to play on a near-everyday basis, while Viloria's development isn't as much of a priority. With that in mind, the Rangers preferred to keep Viloria around in the majors, where he'll likely to play just once or twice a week when Heim needs maintenance.

  • Rangers' Meibrys Viloria: Assigned to minors

    The Rangers reassigned Viloria to minor-league camp Wednesday. Viloria is in a new organization for the first time in his career, after he joined the Rangers this offseason on a minor-league deal following nine years in the Royals organization. He saw big-league action with Kansas City in 2018, 2019 and 2020, but he split the entirety of the 2021 campaign between Triple-A Omaha and Double-A Northwest Arkansas. The 25-year-old catcher will likely report to one of the Rangers' upper-level affiliates to begin the 2022 season.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Outrighted to Double-A

    Viloria was outrighted to Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Tuesday. Viloria has appeared in 67 games at the big-league level but hasn't looked like even a backup option behind the plate, hitting just .215/.266/.287. It's no surprise that he passed through waivers unclaimed, though he's still just 24 years old, so it's certainly possible he continues to improve and winds up back in the big leagues eventually.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Gets DFA'd

    The Royals designated Viloria for assignment Thursday. The catcher was cast off the 40-man roster to clear a spot for outfielder Kyle Isbel, who will start and bat seventh Thursday against the Rangers in his MLB debut. Viloria missed out on the Royals' Opening Day roster after the team named Cam Gallagher the top backup to No. 1 backstop Salvador Perez.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Headed to Triple-A

    Viloria was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Thursday. Viloria has spent parts of each of the last three seasons in Kansas City, racking up 201 plate appearances while serving as the club's backup catcher. However, with both Salvador Perez and Cam Gallagher healthy at this point, he appears set to begin the season in the minors.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Seeing little use

    Viloria remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Indians, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports. Since being recalled from the Royals' taxi squad Aug. 16, Viloria has started in seven of the team's 23 games, going 4-for-21 at the dish. Though top backstop Salvador Perez (eye) is still sidelined, Cam Gallagher will continue to serve as the No. 1 catcher until the former is ready to return from the 10-day injured list.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Receives callup

    The Royals recalled Viloria from the taxi squad prior to Sunday's game against the Twins. He assumed the active roster spot of Jakob Junis (back), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Though Viloria drew the start at catcher Sunday after Salvador Perez (eye) was scratched ahead of the contest, he'll likely serve as the No. 2 option behind Cam Gallagher in the event Perez's bout with blurry vision results in him moving to the IL.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Removed from active roster

    The Royals optioned Viloria to their alternate training site Thursday. Viloria's demotion helps the Royals get their roster down from 30 to 28 men ahead of Thursday's deadline. The Royals' No. 3 catcher had yet to appear in a game for the club this season.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Recalled by Royals

    Viloria was recalled by the Royals on Wednesday. Viloria could compete with Cam Gallagher for backup catcher at-bats this season, but it would take an injury to Salvador Perez for either player to earn significant playing time. Viloria hit just .211/.259/.286 in 42 games last season.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Optioned by Royals

    Viloria was optioned by the Royals on Saturday. Viloria was activated from the injured list Thursday and was expected to serve as a backup catcher for Kansas City. However, he'll be off the 30-man roster after right-hander Brady Singer was activated ahead of his scheduled start Saturday. Even if Viloria returns to the major-league roster, he's unlikely to see significant playing time unless injuries occur.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Activated from IL

    Viloria (undisclosed) was activated from the injured list Thursday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. Viloria landed on the injured list earlier in the month but is good to go ahead of Friday's season opener against the Indians. He's expected to serve as the team's backup catcher for the time being with Cam Gallagher (illness) sidelined.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Progressing well

    Manager Mike Matheny said Wednesday that Viloria (undisclosed) is tracking well to return from the injured list soon, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports. Viloria was placed on the 10-day injured list July 6 for an undisclosed reason, but it appears that he'll be able to return soon. Whether he'll be on track for the start of the regular season remains to be seen. If he's ready for Opening Day, Viloria could serve as the Royals' backup catcher with Cam Gallagher (illness) currently sidelined.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Lands on IL

    The Royals placed Viloria on the 10-day injured list Saturday due to an unspecified issue. Viloria was one of three Royals moved to the IL, with no explanation for any of the transactions provided by the team. Salvador Perez later told reporters Saturday that his placement on the IL was the result of a positive COVID-19 test, but neither Viloria nor Matt Reynolds has shed light on the nature of his absence. With both Perez and Viloria now sidelined during summer camp, Cam Gallagher is the Royals' only available catcher on the 40-man roster.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Heading to Triple-A

    Viloria was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Tuesday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports. The 23-year-old was in competition for the backup catching job behind starter Salvador Perez in spring training, but he'll end up beginning the season in the minors. Viloria appeared in 42 games in 2019 and had a .211/.259/.286 slash line with one home run in 148 plate appearances.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Not starting Sunday

    Viloria is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins. Viloria saw the majority of the starts at catcher in September but will finish the season on the bench for the final two contests. Nick Dini will work behind the plate and bat ninth in Game 162 for the Royals.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Not starting Sunday

    Viloria will be on the bench to start Sunday's game against the Astros. Viloria sits after starting each of the previous five games. He's more interesting for fantasy owners for his playing time than his talent, though, as he owns an unimpressive .223/.270/.304 slash line through 34 games this season. Nick Dini gets the nod behind the plate.

  • Royals' Meibrys Viloria: Takes seat Thursday

    Viloria is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Athletics. Nick Dini will garner the start behind the dish while Viloria rests for the day game after the night game.
