Rangers' Destin Hood: Demoted to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hood was sent to Double-A Frisco on Tuesday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic Dallas reports.

Hood began the year at Triple-A Round Rock, where he slashed .217/.278/.386 with four homers and 20 RBI through 41 games. He'll head to Double-A after a poor showing to begin the 2018 campaign.

Rangers' Destin Hood: Will not make Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hood will not earn a spot on the Rangers' Opening Day roster, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Hood has gone 10-for-32 at the plate with three home runs and 11 RBI over 16 appearances in the Cactus League this spring, but that won't be enough to warrant a spot on the club's Opening Day roster. The club is hopeful that he will remain within the organization and head to Triple-A Round Rock for the start of the 2018 season.

Rangers' Destin Hood: Homers Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hood went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in Saturday's game against the Royals.

Hood has hit well enough this spring to give manager Jeff Banister reason to allot him a roster spot as a fifth outfielder. He's hitting .360 with three home runs and 11 RBI. Hall and Rule 5 pick Carlos Tocci are battling for the that final outfield spot. It's a classic spring training story of one guy being better with the bat (Hood) and the other with the glove (Tocci). Being that we're talking about the fifth outfielder, a role that might get minimal at-bats, the skills that Tocci brings -- his defense and speed -- may be the deciding factor.

Rangers' Destin Hood: Inks minor-league deal with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hood signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Thursday, which includes an invitation to spring training.

Hood failed to make it back to the majors last season after earning a September promotion in 2016. He spent most of the year with Triple-A New Orleans, hitting a respectable .260/.349/.498 with 14 homers in 62 games for the Baby Cakes before being outrighted off the Marlins' 40-man roster in October. Hood will likely serve as organizational outfield depth in 2018.

Marlins' Destin Hood: Outrighted Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hood was outrighted from the 40-man roster Saturday, the Miami Herald's Andre Fernandez reports.

Hood didn't make any appearances with the Marlins this season after just missing a spot on the club's opening roster, but stayed on the team's 40-man for most of the year. He played in 62 games with Triple-A New Orleans in 2017, hitting .260/.349/.498 with 14 home runs and 41 RBI.

Marlins' Destin Hood: Homer binge continues for New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hood went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Triple-A New Orleans' loss to Colorado Springs on Friday.

He's homered in all four games of the Baby Cakes' road series against the Sky Sox, but Hood has been hammering the ball when he's been closer to sea level as well and now has seven homers and 14 RBI in his last nine games. The 27-year-old has a .266/.347/.544 slash line through 46 games at Triple-A this season with 13 home runs and 36 RBI, and if the Marlins are sellers heading into this year's trade deadline, Hood could find himself with a starting job in the majors towards the end of 2017.

Marlins' Destin Hood: Sent to New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hood was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans on Thursday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

The 26-year-old turned heads in big-league camp with a .283/.346/.478 line in 25 plate appearances and, if a need in the outfield arises, should be among the club's first options to fill it. Single-season NL-only fantasy players who can comfortably stash minor leaguers should consider tucking him away.

Marlins' Destin Hood: Bangs out three hits Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hood went 3-for-3 with two doubles and two RBI in Sunday's split-squad game against the Nationals.

The two-baggers came against Stephen Strasburg and Shawn Kelley, so Hood did everything he could to impress the Marlins' brass Sunday. Despite a .308/.364/.538 slash line through 39 spring at-bats, though, the 26-year-old is probably headed back to Triple-A New Orleans to begin the season, as the team doesn't appear to have room for a fifth outfielder, especially after Martin Prado's hamstring injury left a big hole in the infield.

Marlins' Destin Hood: Likely headed back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Saturday that Hood "is probably on the outside looking in, honestly," when it comes to winning a spot on the big league roster, The Sun-Sentinel reports. "I still think he's got room to grow in Triple-A," Mattingly continued. "Probably had his best year last year. ... He's a guy that's growing and, you know, he's a guy that we know is there and is on the way. If we have an injury, then he's a guy that'd be ready."

The 26-year-old is having a good camp so far, launching his first home run of the spring Saturday and hitting .308 (4-for-13) through the first week, but the Marlins are planning to use a short bench this season and carry an extra bullpen arm instead, leaving no room for Hood as a fifth outfielder. He'll work on his contact skills and overall offensive game at Triple-A New Orleans in 2017, but if Giancarlo Stanton breaks down again, Hood could become an interesting FAAB target.

Marlins' Destin Hood: Will compete for bench role in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hood will compete for a spot on the Marlins bench in spring training.

The 26-year-old has flashed both power and speed in the minors, including 15 home runs and 11 steals in 126 Triple-A games last season, but his lack of plate discipline limits Hood's upside as a major league hitter. The Marlins already have four outfield spots spoken for as well, with Ichiro Suzuki as their fourth outfielder behind starters Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna, so even if he has a big spring, Hood could be squeezed back to Triple-A New Orleans.

Marlins' Destin Hood: Joins major league team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hood had his contract selected Thursday and will join the major league team, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

Hood has been enjoying a good season with Triple-A New Orleans, where he's slashing .267/.316/.435 and added 15 home runs to go along with 80 RBI. The 26-year-old has never appeared in the majors in his career, but he'll now have the opportunity with the expanded rosters at the start of September. Raudel Lazo was designated for assignment in a corresponding move to clear a spot on the 40-man roster.
