  • Royals' Brent Rooker: Recalled from Triple-A

    Rooker was recalled to the majors from Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday.

    After being traded to the Royals from San Diego, Rooker played five games with Triple-A Omaha in which he slashed .450/.500/.950 over 22 plate appearances. He's had less success in MLB with a career OPS of .690 and hasn't reached base in either game he's played in the big leagues this season.

  • Royals' Brent Rooker: Joins Royals

    Rooker was traded from the Padres to the Royals in exchange for Cam Gallagher on Tuesday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    The deal appears to accomplish little more than shifting some organizational depth pieces around. Rooker owns a career .690 OPS in 67 major-league games, just two of which have come this season.

  • Padres' Brent Rooker: Returns to minors

    Rooker was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    Rooker joined the big-league club Friday and will return to the minors after going 0-for-7 with four strikeouts in two appearances. Esteury Ruiz was promoted from El Paso in a corresponding move.

  • Padres' Brent Rooker: Recalled Friday

    Rooker was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Friday.

    The 27-year-old hasn't yet appeared in any major-league games this year, but he'll join the Padres as outfield depth after Jurickson Profar (concussion/neck) was placed on the injured list. Rooker has slashed .279/.401/.596 with 14 homers, 45 runs, 44 RBI and four stolen bases over 49 games in El Paso this year.

  • Padres' Brent Rooker: Returns to minors

    The Padres optioned Rooker to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.

    Rooker's stint with the Padres lasted just one day after he didn't appear in either game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Rockies when he was called up to serve as the club's 27th man. He still has yet to make his San Diego debut.

  • Padres' Brent Rooker: Brought up as 27th man

    Rooker will serve as the Padres' 27th man in Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

    Rooker spent a couple days on the big-league roster earlier this season, and he will be available for a couple more games.

  • Padres' Brent Rooker: Back to Triple-A

    Rooker was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    He didn't appear in a game during this brief two-day stint with the big club. Rooker is hitting .242/.357/.568 with nine home runs and 37 strikeouts in 26 games at Triple-A.

  • Padres' Brent Rooker: Called up Friday

    Rooker was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Friday.

    He takes the place of Wil Myers, who was placed on the injured list with knee inflammation. Nomar Mazara should start in right field against righties, but Rooker could occupy the short side of a platoon in the short term. He hit .242/.357/.568 with nine home runs and 37 strikeouts in 26 games at Triple-A.

  • Padres' Brent Rooker: Comes off IL

    Rooker (shoulder) returned from Triple-A El Paso's 7-day injured list Tuesday and went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in the affiliate's 11-7 win over Sacramento.

    He was sidelined for just over three weeks with the shoulder injury. The 27-year-old is slashing .222/.364/.593 through eight games at El Paso this season.

  • Padres' Brent Rooker: Out with shoulder injury

    Triple-A El Paso placed Rooker on its 7-day injured list April 19 with a shoulder injury, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    After being acquired from the Twins on April 7, Rooker hit .227 with a pair of home runs over his first seven games with El Paso, but he hasn't played since April 17 on account of the injury. The timing of the move to IL is a particularly disappointing development for Rooker, who likely would have been summoned to the Padres' taxi squad Wednesday after outfielder Wil Myers aggravated a thumb injury in Tuesday's win over the Reds. If Myers is moved to the IL, the Padres appear set to call up Trayce Thompson from El Paso to burnish the club's outfield depth.

  • Padres' Brent Rooker: Shipped to San Diego

    The Padres acquired Rooker and reliever Taylor Rogers from the Twins on Thursday in exchange for starting pitcher Chris Paddack and reliever Emilio Pagan, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    Since they were planning to keep Kyle Garlick over Rooker on the Opening Day roster as a reserve outfielder/designated hitter, the Twins will cash out on the latter in an effort to bolster their pitching staff. With the move to San Diego, Rooker may face a similarly difficult path to earning a bench role on the Opening Day roster, and since he has two minor-league options remaining, the Padres are likely content to keep him around as organizational outfield depth at Triple-A El Paso. Rooker logged 213 plate appearances in the majors for Minnesota in 2021, slashing .201/.291/.397 with nine home runs and 16 RBI.

  • Padres' Brent Rooker: Optioned to minors

    The Padres optioned Rooker to Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.

    Rooker won't immediately report to the big club after the Padres acquired him earlier in the day in a four-player deal with the Twins. He'll get the opportunity to play on an everyday basis at El Paso, and his presence on the 40-man roster should put him near the top of the list for a promotion when the Padres require another corner outfielder or right-handed bat off the bench.

  • Twins' Brent Rooker: Returns to lineup

    Rooker (shoulder) is starting Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays.

    Rooker was scratched from Thursday's Grapefruit League lineup against Tampa Bay due to a right shoulder strain, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Rooker is not starting Tuesday against the Cubs.
