  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Goes yard in loss

    Palacios went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Brewers.

    Palacios has five homers this season, four of which have come over his last six games. The downside is those long balls are his only hits in his last nine contests. The 26-year-old outfielder is hitting .268 with 10 RBI, five runs scored, two doubles and a stolen base over 61 plate appearances in the majors this year.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Captures strong-side platoon role

    Palacios will start in left field and bat sixth in Monday's game against the Brewers.

    Palacios will stick in the lineup for the Cardinals' fourth consecutive matchup with a right-handed starting pitcher. Since receiving a call-up from Triple-A Memphis on Aug. 17, Palacios has slashed .275/.302/.549 with four home runs and a stolen base across 54 plate appearances. He should continue to occupy a strong-side platoon role in the corner outfield after the Cardinals recently placed Tyler O'Neill (foot) on the 10-day injured list.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Getting start in left field

    Palacios is starting in left field and batting sixth in Friday's contest against the Phillies, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Palacios homered twice off the bench Tuesday in Baltimore and went deep again during a start Wednesday, so he'll get a second straight start Friday. Tyler O'Neill is getting a breather.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Provides only run in win

    Palacios went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Orioles.

    Palacios has homered three times over his last two games, so he may be disappointed that the Cardinals are done with Baltimore for the year. While he's primarily played in the outfield this season, he got the start and played the full game at second base Wednesday. With an outfield of Tyler O'Neill, Lars Nootbaar and Jordan Walker, Palacios would have a tough time carving out a role there, but there's also a hurdle at the keystone in Tommy Edman. Palacios is slashing .311/.340/.622 with four homers, nine RBI, four runs scored and a stolen base over 48 plate appearances -- manager Oliver Marmol may have to find room for the 26-year-old if he keeps hitting well.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Goes deep twice off bench

    Palacios went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Baltimore.

    Entering in the second inning as a replacement for the injured Nolan Gorman, Palacios took advantage of the opportunity, blasting a pair of solo home runs. After going deep just once in his first 150 career at-bats, the 26-year-old outfielder launched homers in back-to-back plate appearances Tuesday. In limited action since getting promoted from the minors Aug. 16, Palacios has posted a slash line of .317/.349/.585 with two doubles, three home runs, eight RBI and one steal across 16 games.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Hits bench Monday

    Palacios is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Padres.

    Palacios will hit the bench after he started in center field six of the previous eight games while going 6-for-21 with a home run and five RBI over that stretch. Tommy Edman will patrol center field Monday, but both he and Palacios could see their opportunities in the outfield become more limited in the near future, as Lars Nootbaar (groin) is a candidate to return from the 10-day injured list as soon as later this week.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Batting leadoff Tuesday

    Palacios is starting in center field and batting leadoff Tuesday against the Padres.

    This is the first career leadoff opportunity for Palacios, who has posted an impressive .304/.333/.522 slash line in 24 plate appearances since the Cardinals called him up from Triple-A Memphis on Aug. 17. Tommy Edman is getting the day off.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Gets on base four times

    Palacios went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk and two RBI in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Pirates.

    Palacios has seen regular playing time in center field over the last week and has made the most of it, going 7-for-18 with three extra-base hits and six RBI through seven games. The rookie outfielder was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Aug. 17 after slashing .297/.315/.456 over 40 games following a trade from the Cleveland organization, where he held a .217/.348/.313 slash line over 56 contests with Triple-A Columbus this year. Palacios' hot bat has kept him in the lineup, but the impending returns of Nolan Gorman (back) and Lars Nootbaar (abdomen) could cause enough of a lineup shuffle to send him to the bench in the near future.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Serving as primary center fielder

    Palacios will start in center field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Pirates.

    Palacios will crack the lineup for the fourth time in five games after going 3-for-9 with a home run and three RBI over his previous three contests. The 26-year-old's run as St. Louis' primary center fielder will mostly likely be short-lived, as Lars Nootbaar (abdomen) appears on track to return from the 10-day injured list Sunday when first eligible or shortly thereafter.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Recalled from Memphis

    St. Louis recalled Palacios from Triple-A Memphis on Thursday.

    Palacios was acquired from the Guardians two months ago in exchange for cash considerations and had since registered an .876 OPS with five homers and three steals in 40 games with Memphis. The 25-year-old will step in as the Cardinals' fourth outfielder with Dylan Carlson (ankle/oblique) needing at least a couple more weeks of rest and rehab.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Traded to St. Louis

    Palacios was traded to the Cardinals from the Guardians in exchange for cash considerations Friday.

    Palacios was designated for assignment by the Guardians on Sunday. Following the trade, the outfielder will report to Triple-A Memphis, while he replaces Tyler O'Neill (back) on the 40-man roster after O'Neill was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday. Palacios has yet to appear in a major-league contest this season, posting a .217 average with three homers, 28 RBI, 41 runs and six stolen bases over 217 at-bats in 56 games with Triple-A Columbus.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Booted off 40-man roster

    Cleveland designated Palacios for assignment Sunday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Palacios is now off the 40-man roster, with Cleveland clearing a spot for Cody Morris (lat) in his return from the 60-day injured list. In 269 plate appearances with Triple-A Columbus this season, Palacios has hit .217 with a .669 OPS. The 26-year-old outfielder will now be exposed to the waiver wire but will stick around in the Guardians organization if he isn't claimed or dealt to another team.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Optioned to Triple-A

    Palacios was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Saturday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Palacios didn't make a strong case for a bench spot this spring, posting a .618 OPS over nine games. His .232/.293/.286 line in his 54-game debut last year didn't make a compelling argument either, but he slashed .279/.371/.458 at the Triple-A level and doesn't have much left to prove there.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Making solid contact

    Palacios has gone 3-for-6 with a walk and a run over three Cactus League games.

    Palacios will be away from the Guardians while representing the Netherlands at the World Baseball Classic. A strong showing in the international event could help his case as a potential fourth outfielder this season, though he'll likely have to battle with Will Brennan for that spot. Palacios is best suited to left field, but with Steven Kwan in that position for now, Palacios may need to add more versatility to get a longer look in the majors.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Returns to minors

    The Guardians optioned Palacios to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday.

    Cleveland will swap Palacios off the 28-man active roster for another rookie outfielder in Will Brennan, whose contract was selected from Triple-A. Palacios had started just once in the Guardians' last 12 games, so he'll get the chance to pick up regular at-bats at Columbus before the International League season wraps up.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Notches steal

    Palacios drew a walk and stole a base in Friday's 4-3 win over the Twins.

    Palacios pinch hit for Luke Maile in the eighth inning and stole second, though he was left on base. Playing time has been scarce for Palacios, who has started just five games since he was called up Aug. 23. With Steven Kwan, Myles Straw and Oscar Gonzalez entrenched as the Guardians' preferred outfield from left to right, Palacios is unlikely to see many additional opportunities to close out the year. He's slashing .241/.303/.296 with two steals, 10 RBI, seven runs scored and six doubles through 119 plate appearances.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Promoted, starting Tuesday

    Palacios was recalled from Triple-A Columbus and will bat seventh as the designated hitter Tuesday against the Padres.

    Palacios was sent down by the Guardians in early July, but he'll rejoin the big-league club Tuesday and immediately enter the starting nine. The 25-year-old has appeared in 39 games in his first taste of the majors this year and has a .250/.312/.310 slash line with 10 RBI, six runs and a stolen base.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Sent down Friday

    Palacios was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Friday.

    Palacios drew starts in the last three games and went 2-for-8 with a walk and a strikeout. However, he'll head to the minors after Nolan Jones was called up Friday. Jones should serve as the Guardians' primary right fielder while Oscar Gonzalez (abdomen) is on the injured list.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: On bench for matinee

    Palacios isn't starting the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

    Even though right-hander Garrett Hill is on the mound during Monday's matinee, Palacios will be out of the lineup for a third consecutive game. Franmil Reyes is shifting to right field while Gabriel Arias enters the lineup at the hot corner.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Sitting Sunday against lefty

    Palacios is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees.

    The lefty-hitting Palacios is projected to see an uptick in playing time after everyday right fielder Oscar Gonzalez (abdomen) was moved to the injured list Saturday, but Palacios will take a seat for the series finale with southpaw Jordan Montgomery on the hill for New York. The righty-hitting Ernie Clement will instead start alongside Myles Straw and Steven Kwan in the Guardians outfield. Clement and Palacios could end up forming a platoon while Gonzalez is out, with Clement set to benefit from the larger share of starting chances as the left-handed hitter.
