Top Kyren Paris News

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Sitting Saturday

    Paris is not in the starting lineup Saturday versus the Rangers.

    Paris will take a seat after he went 1-for-5 with two RBI in Friday's 9-3 win. Luis Guillorme will take over at second base and bat eighth against Texas.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Promoted to majors

    Paris was recalled from Double-A Rocket City on Thursday.

    With both Brandon Drury (hamstring) and Luis Rengifo (illness) sidelined, the Angels were shorthanded along the infield. Paris boasts enough defensive versatility to help the team in that regard, as he is capable of playing second base and shortstop as well as in the outfield. His ability to contribute as a hitter is far less clear, as he was striking out at a 39.1 percent clip across 92 plate appearances with Rocket City prior to his promotion.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Angels optioned Paris to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.

    Paris went just 5-for-23 at the dish over 12 games this spring. The 22-year-old skipped over Salt Lake when he was promoted last season but will head to the Angels' top affiliate to begin the 2024 campaign.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Starting Friday

    Paris (thumb) is starting at second base and batting ninth in Friday's Cactus League game against the Padres.

    Paris underwent thumb surgery late last season but is fully healthy heading into 2024. The 22-year-old went 4-for-40 in his first taste of the majors last year and is 1-for-8 through four games in spring training.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Undergoes thumb surgery

    Paris underwent surgery Monday to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb, reports.

    Paris suffered the injury Sept. 16, and his season officially ended a couple days after that when he was placed on the 60-day injured list. He'll be rehabbing at the beginning of the offseason but is expected to be 100 percent for spring training.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Placed on 60-day IL

    Paris was moved to the 60-day injured list Monday due to a ligament tear in his left thumb.

    Paris was brought up Friday from Triple-A Salt Lake to get some opportunities in the big leagues, but he was sent for further evaluation Monday after injuring his left thumb. This diagnosis will force him to miss the remainder of the 2023 campaign.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Getting thumb checked out

    Paris is scheduled to undergo further testing on his sore left thumb Monday, reports.

    Paris had been slated to make a fourth consecutive start in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Tigers but was scratched shortly before opening pitch due to the injury. The Angels are viewing Paris as day-to-day for now, but the upcoming tests should determine if he's dealing with anything beyond minor soreness. If Paris can quickly move past the injury, he could end up seeing a near-everyday role for the rest of the season while bouncing between second base and center field.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Scratched with thumb issue

    Paris was scratched from Sunday's lineup against the Tigers with left thumb soreness.

    Paris was poised to make his second consecutive start but was instead a late scratch due to the thumb injury. Zach Neto will join the starting nine after initially being slated for a day off.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Recalled from Salt Lake

    The Angels recalled Paris from Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.

    Paris returns 24 hours after being optioned with Mike Moustakas (forearm) hitting the 10-day injured list. The versatile 21-year-old Paris has gone just 3-for-32 (.094) through his first 13 major-league games but could see fairly regular starts down the stretch as the Angels look ahead to 2024.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Angels optioned Paris to Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.

    Paris earned a Sept. 1 call-up from Double-A Rocket City, where he had posted an .810 OPS with 14 homers and 44 steals through 113 games this season. He'll now head to the Triple-A level, and maybe finish the year there, after going 3-for-32 (.094) with zero extra-base hits and 12 strikeouts across his first 13 big-league games.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Getting look in center field

    Paris will start in center field and bat ninth in Wednesday's game against the Mariners.

    Paris is a natural middle infielder and had started at shortstop in nine of the Angels' first 10 games of September, but he lost hold of his everyday role when Zach Neto was activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday. Though Paris was held out of the lineup for the past two games and is slashing just .103/.235/.103 through 35 plate appearances in the majors, the Angels are still eager to give him a look over the final few weeks of the season. To that end, Paris will pick up his first professional start in center field Wednesday while the Angels remain without the services of Mike Trout (wrist) and Mickey Moniak (back).

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Tallies two thefts Thursday

    Paris went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run, an RBI and two stolen bases in a 3-2 win against the Guardians on Thursday.

    Paris was active in the contest, walking and stealing a base in the third inning and adding another theft after reaching on an error in the fifth. The rookie then came up with arguably his biggest big-league hit to date in the ninth, tying the score with a clutch one-out single and subsequently crossing the plate for the winning run on a Randal Grichuk base hit. Paris has gone just 2-for-16 over his first seven major-league contests, though he's added four walks and three stolen bases.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Reaches twice in MLB debut

    Paris went 0-for-2 with a walk and a hit-by-pitch in a loss to the Athletics on Friday.

    Paris had a unique introduction to the big leagues, becoming the first player in Angels history to be hit by a pitch in his first career plate appearance. The rookie also drew a walk in his final trip to the plate, which is no surprise given his 17.1 percent walk rate in the minors this season. Paris appears in line to serve as the Angels' primary shortstop until fellow rookie Zach Neto (back) returns from the injured list.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Notches first big-league steal

    Paris went 1-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in Saturday's loss to Oakland.

    Paris collected his first major-league hit with a fifth-inning leadoff single, and he quickly proceeded to record his first theft. The rookie infielder also drew a walk in the seventh, marking the fourth time through eight plate appearances that he's reached base (one hit, two walks and a hit-by-pitch). Paris could be an impactful base stealer if he continues to find ways to make it to first, as he recorded 44 thefts in 50 attempts in the minors this season prior to being promoted.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Promotion official

    The Angels selected Paris' contract from Double-A Rocket City on Friday.

    A second-round pick in the 2019 MLB Draft out of a California high school, Paris has earned his first major-league promotion after slashing .255/.393/.417 with 14 homers and 44 steals in 113 games this summer at the Double-A level. The 21-year-old middle infielder should get fairly regular starts with the Angels down the stretch as they look ahead to 2024 and beyond.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Set for MLB debut

    Paris will have his contract selected by the Angels on Friday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Paris isn't on the 40-man roster and has spent the entire 2023 season at Double-A Rocket City. He's the latest of the Angels' aggressive promotions to the majors, though he's maintained a 122 wRC+ across 514 plate appearances on the campaign. He is unlikely to hit for a high average against big-league pitching this season, but Paris stole 44 bases with 14 home runs in 113 games at Double-A, so he's interesting for his speed in deeper leagues. So long as Zach Neto (back) remains sidelined, Paris could work at shortstop while Luis Rengifo sees more starts in the outfield.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Hitting for power at Double-A

    Paris is slashing .239/.390/.487 with nine home runs and 10 steals in 31 games for Double-A Rocket City.

    The 21-year-old middle infielder has added some strength and power since getting drafted as more of a speedster in the second round of the 2019 Draft. Paris is hitting no-doubt home runs to all fields after flashing this potential at Double-A to close last season (.282 ISO in 14 games). His 31.9 percent strikeout rate is to blame for his lower batting average, but this three-true-outcome approach could work for him if he continues to do this much damage when he connects.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Sent to minors camp

    Paris was reassigned to the Angels' minor-league camp on Wednesday.

    Paris held his own during Cactus League play, posting a .278/.381/.500 slash line with a double, a triple, four runs and a team-leading seven RBI over 21 plate appearances. However, he's yet to play above the Double-A level, so he was never likely to earn a big-league roster spot out of camp. Paris is just 21 years old, but he could make his major-league debut in the next season or two.

  • Angels' Kyren Paris: Advances to Double-A

    The Angels promoted Paris from High-A Tri-City to Double-A Rocket City on Tuesday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Paris will fill the roster spot vacated by outfielder/first baseman Ryan Aguilar, who was recently elevated to the majors as a COVID-19 replacement before being sent to Triple-A Salt Lake this week. Over 391 plate appearances at Tri-City this season, the 20-year-old Paris slashed .229/.345/.387 with eight home runs and 28 stolen bases.
