Negron's contract was selected from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.
Negron will receive a promotion after slashing .310/.396/.503 with 12 homers and 61 RBI over 82 games this season with the Rainiers. He figures to serve as a utility player while with the big-league club, having played a variety of positions in both the infield and outfield this year in the minors.
Negron cleared waivers Wednesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Negron seemed to have a shot at a bench role, at least for the first month of the season while Kyle Seager recovers from hand surgery. Dylan Moore appears to have beaten him out for the job, however, so Negron will wait at the Triple-A level until another injury opens up a roster spot.
Negron went 3-for-4 with a home run, a stolen base, two RBI and two runs scored against the Angels on Saturday.
Negron drew the start at third base with a southpaw on the mound and took advantage by contributing across the board. Saturday's game marked his first start with the Mariners since being acquired at the waiver deadline, leaving the 32-year-old with little relevance in most formats.
Negron had his contract selected from Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Negron was acquired by the Mariners from the Diamondbacks on Thursday and the team was apparently just waiting for rosters to expand before promoting him. The 32-year-old has played only 16 major-league games over the past two seasons and will provide infield depth for his new team.
Negron was dealt to Seattle by the Diamondbacks on Thursday in exchange for cash considerations.
Negron has only played in 16 games at the major-league level over the past two years, but he will provide some additional infield depth for the Mariners as the club looks to make the postseason for the first time since 2001. He will report to Triple-A Tacoma upon arrival, though he's not on the club's 40-man roster. Even if he joins the active roster at some point in September, don't expect him to hold much fantasy value.
Negron was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Sunday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic Arizona reports.
Negron has passed through waivers unclaimed and will stick with Reno moving forward. He currently owns a 99 wRC+ in 55 games played with Reno this season.
Negron was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Jack Magruder of The Sports Xchange reports.
Negron was the roster casualty for Jon Jay, who was acquired from the Royals via trade Wednesday. The 32-year-old Negron was hitting .259/.355/.382 across 55 games with Triple-A Reno prior to being cut loose. The utility man will now take a spin through waivers to determine where he'll report next.
The Diamondbacks recalled Negron from Triple-A Reno on Monday.
Negron was brought up to take the roster spot of Socrates Brito, who was sent to Reno in the corresponding move. Negron saw action at the three infield spots left of first base, in center field, and also right field, so he figures to fill a superutility role with the big club.
The Diamondbacks reassigned Negron to their minor-league camp Monday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Negron was always viewed as a long shot to win a utility gig with the Diamondbacks with Chris Owings and Daniel Descalso both capable of playing multiple positions across the infield and outfield. It's expected that Negron will spend much of the season at Triple-A Reno, with whom he slashed .300/.366/.501 in 437 plate appearances prior to being called up to Arizona in September.
Negron cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.
Negron spent most of 2017 with Triple-A Reno, compiling a respectable .300/.366/.501 line with 13 homers and 13 steals in 120 games before earning a September promotion. His minor-league success didn't transfer to the majors, as he struggled to a .160/.300/.200 line in 25 at-bats during his brief stint with the big club, prompting the Diamondbacks to drop him from their 40-man ahead of the Rule 5 roster deadline.
Negron started in left field and went 0-for-2 with a walk in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Padres.
Negron made three consecutive starts shortly after joining the Diamondbacks as a September callup, but the 31-year-old has mostly been a spectator ever since, with his start Tuesday marking just his fourth appearance in the last 13 contests. With most of the team's regulars back to full strength, Negron isn't expected to see an uptick in usage over the final week and a half of the regular season.
Negron went 2-for-5 with a double and two runs in Monday's 13-0 win over the Dodgers.
With lefty Rich Hill on the mound for Los Angeles, Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo chose to give the lefty-hitting Ketel Marte the day off, opening up shortstop for Negron, who was part of the wave of September callups last weekend. Negron turned in a quality showing at the plate as the Diamondbacks claimed their 11th straight win, and may have earned himself more work against left-handed pitching in future contests. Since he has the ability to man multiple positions in the infield or outfield, Negron won't necessarily be relegated to duties at shortstop whenever he plays.
Negron was promoted to the big leagues Friday.
Negron's contract was selected prior to Friday's game against the Rockies, as the Diamondbacks began adding players to their expanded roster. The infielder hasn't played in a major-league game since 2015 when he was a member of the Reds, but he's slashed .300/.366/.501 with 13 home runs and 64 RBI in 120 games for Triple-A Reno, and will add more depth to the Arizona infield.
Negron was reassigned to minor league camp Friday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.
Negron hit three home runs this spring, but he was caught up in a numbers game on the roster. He'll likely spend the season with Triple-A Iowa.
Negron hit a home run against the Mariners on Thursday.
Negron is not going to make the team this spring, but as someone with major league experience who can play all over the field, he could be a valuable part of the organization should injuries strike.
Negron will join the Cubs at spring training as a non-roster invitee.
After a promising stint with the Reds in 2014 in which Negron batted .271/.331/.479 wth six home runs and 17 RBI, the 29-year-old fell flat in 2015 and eventually was sent down to Triple-A Louisville. His season ended early due to a shoulder injury, but he should be ready for the start of spring training. Negron's versatility to play both infield and outfield makes him a bit more intriguing for teams looking for depth off the bench, but it still seems a long shot that he will crack the big league roster out of spring training.
Negron (shoulder) signed a minor league deal with the Cubs on Friday, Baseball America's Matt Eddy reports.
The 29-year-old utility infielder goes from a perfect situation to get MLB at-bats in Cincinnati to perhaps the most loaded organization in baseball, so he could spend all of 2016 at Triple-A. He has a .220 average, six home runs and seven steals in 270 career big league plate appearances.
