  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Gets start Wednesday

    Amaya is in the Cubs' lineup Wednesday against the Giants. Amaya will start at catcher and bat ninth with Yan Gomes getting a day off. The backup catcher has not tallied a hit in his last five games with a plate appearance, going 0-for-16.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Enters lineup Sunday

    Amaya is starting at catcher and batting ninth in Sunday's game against the Reds. With Yan Gomes getting a day off, Amaya will enter the lineup for the second time in the last three days. The Cubs did have a doubleheader Friday, otherwise Amaya likely wouldn't have seen the lineup as frequently to begin the month. As long as Chicago remains in the playoff race, the team figures to ride the veteran Gomes, which will keep Amaya on the bench most days.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Homers in win Sunday

    Amaya went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Royals. Amaya saw his first playing time in a week and made the most of it, blasting his fourth home run of the season in the eighth inning, which ended up being the deciding run. With the Cubs in the thick of a pennant race, veteran catcher Yan Gomes will likely see the bulk of the playing time moving forward, with Amaya capable of producing when called upon. The backup role limits the 24-year-old's fantasy outlook, at least for this year.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Hits second career homer

    Amaya went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's win over the Orioles. Yan Gomes and Tucker Barnhart remain the Cubs' primary catchers, but manager David Ross has been getting Amaya involved when he can. The rookie has been paired up with Kyle Hendricks the last two times through the rotation and has garnered a few starts at DH against left-handed starters. Amaya's offensive upside has been on display, but as long as Gomes and Barnhart are healthy, he won't get enough at-bats to crack fantasy relevancy in standard leagues.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Another start Wednesday

    Amaya is starting at catcher Wednesday against the Angels. Yan Gomes and Tucker Barnhart will both ride the pine. Amaya has posted an .857 OPS through his first 29 major-league plate appearances this season with the Cubs and has now started four straight games between catcher and DH.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Hits first MLB home run

    Amaya went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Padres. Amaya's home run in the third inning against Drew Carlton was the first of his MLB career. The 24-year-old, who debuted with the Cubs earlier this year, was just recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday to replace Justin Steele (forearm) on the roster. Veterans Yan Gomes and Tucker Barnhart are mainstays behind the plate, but Amaya could push the issue if he hits well and Chicago decides it wants to go younger at some point.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: In lineup for debut

    Amaya is starting at catcher and batting ninth for the Cubs in Thursday's game versus the Nationals, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. It will be the major-league debut for Amaya, who received his first big-league promotion Tuesday. With Yan Gomes (concussion) out indefinitely, Amaya should see the occasional start behind Tucker Barnhart.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Gets first big-league call-up

    Amaya was recalled Tuesday from Double-A Tennessee, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Amaya will join the Cubs ahead of Tuesday's game against the Nationals after Yan Gomes took a backswing to the helmet Monday. A former top-ranked prospect, Amaya was sporting an impressive 1.070 OPS with four home runs through 13 games this season at the Double-A level. Gomes has yet to be placed on the injured list, so Amaya could be in store for a short stay in the majors.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Healthy again at Double-A

    Amaya (foot) has started at catcher in two of Double-A Tennessee's first four games, going 1-for-7 with a solo home run. Amaya didn't make an appearance during the Cubs' Cactus League slate until March 28, but he showed enough improvement in his recovery from the Lisfranc fracture in his left foot that he suffered while playing with the Double-A club last September to avoid a stint on the injured list to open the 2023 campaign. The 23-year-old was limited to serving exclusively as a designated hitter in 2022 after he returned from Tommy John surgery, but he looks like he'll be able to play catcher on a full-time basis this season.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Nearing spring debut

    Amaya (foot) took reps at catcher and hit during a simulated game Saturday and could make his Cactus League debut in the near future, LaMond Pope and Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Amaya looks to be nearing the finish line in his recovery from the Lisfranc fracture he sustained to his left foot while playing at Double-A Tennessee in mid-September. The 23-year-old backstop, who had already missed the first three months of the season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, served exclusively as a designated hitter for Tennessee but was expected to be ready to handle reps behind the plate in the Arizona Fall League had the foot injury not nixed those plans. Amaya said that he felt comfortable while making throws behind the plate Saturday, and his foot presented no complications while he was hitting. Once he makes his spring debut, Amaya should be in the clear for the start of the minor-league season in early April.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Missing out on Fall League

    Amaya isn't participating in the Arizona Fall League after he suffered a Lisfranc fracture in his left foot while playing for Double-A Tennessee in September, Patrick Mooney and Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic report. Tennessee's season concluded Sept. 28, but Amaya didn't see any action for the club after Sept. 11 due to the injury. The 23-year-old had already gotten off to a delayed start to the 2022 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery last November, and he served exclusively as a designated hitter with Tennessee and the Cubs' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate once he was cleared for game action July 1. Amaya's surgically repaired throwing elbow was expected to be fully healed in time for him to catch in games during the Arizona Fall League, but the foot injury will end up costing him some valuable reps. Amaya, who was recently tendered a contract for the 2023 season and will remain on the Cubs' 40-man roster, is expected to be fully cleared for spring training, but he won't be a serious candidate to win an Opening Day role with the big club.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Back in action at Double-A

    Amaya (finger) returned to the Double-A Tennessee lineup Tuesday and has started at designated hitter in each of the club's last three games, going 3-for-12 with a double, a walk, an RBI and a run. Amaya was out of action for nearly two weeks while recovering from a dislocated ring finger on his left hand, but it's apparently no longer an issue for him, at least while swinging a bat. The 23-year-old will be limited to DH duty for Tennessee the rest of the season as he also underwent Tommy John surgery last winter, but the Cubs expect him to resume his duties behind the plate in the Arizona Fall League, per Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Daily Herald.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Won't catch this season

    Amaya (elbow) won't catch this season, but he may be able to DH by midsummer, Jim Callis of MLB.com reports. He had Tommy John surgery in November, which is why he won't be catching. However, as a position player, he won't require the typical 14-to-16 months to return to game action. He should be a full go as a catcher in 2023.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Sent to Double-A

    Amaya (elbow) was optioned to Double-A Tennessee on Monday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports Amaya underwent Tommy John surgery back in November and is still rehabbing. He doesn't have a clear timeline for his return to action.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Sidelined by injury

    Amaya (undisclosed) is on the 7-day injured list at Double-A Tennessee, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The specifics of the issue remain unclear, though the young catcher has been on the shelf since early June. Amaya was hitting .215/.406/.304 with one homer, four doubles, 13 RBI, 11 runs and two stolen bases in 23 games for the Smokies prior to the injury.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Not on Opening Day roster

    Amaya was not included on the Cubs' 30-man Opening Day roster. This isn't a huge surprise, as Amaya has yet to appear above High-A. The 21-year-old will spend the 2020 season working on his development at the team's alternate site in South Bend, and he remains in the Cubs' future plans behind the plate.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Added to player pool

    Amaya will be a part of the Cubs' 60-man player pool and participate in summer camp in South Bend. Amaya will be joined by 10 other players in South Bend, a group that will likely focus on development while MLB regulars train at Wrigley Field. The 21-year-old hasn't appeared above High-A and consequently isn't likely to make his way to the majors this season, but he could enhance his prospect stock if he looks good in camp.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Could begin season at Double-A

    Amaya, who is in his first big-league camp this year, could start the season with Double-A Tennessee, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. The 20-year-old catcher is getting his first taste of the MLB level this spring, but the Cubs are in no rush to make him their everyday backstop with Willson Contreras around. Amaya spent 2019 at High-A Myrtle Beach and had a .235/.351/.402 slash line with 11 home runs and 24 doubles in 99 games.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Added to 40-man roster

    Amaya was added to the 40-man roster by the Cubs on Wednesday. The 20-year-old signed as a glove-first catcher in 2015 but has performed well enough to warrant protection from the Rule 5 draft. Amaya spent 2019 at High-A Myrtle Beach and had a .235/.351/.402 slash line with 11 home runs and 24 doubles in 99 games.
