Rangers' Tim Federowicz: Signs minors deal with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Thursday as a non-roster invitee.

Federowicz appeared in 29 major-league games in 2019, hitting .160/.213/.347 with four home runs and seven RBI. The catcher will likely begin the season with Triple-A Nashville, although he'll get the chance to work out of the big-league camp during spring training.

Tim Federowicz: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Monday and elected free agency.

Federowicz spent 29 games in the big leagues last season, slashing .160/.213/.347 with four homers and seven RBI. He'll be in search of a new club over the offseason after heading to the open market.

Rangers' Tim Federowicz: Gets call to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz had his contract selected from Triple-A Nashville ahead of Friday's game against the Athletics.

Federowicz will get another shot with the big club after slashing .169/.224/.366 with four homers and seven RBI over 28 games this season with Texas. He figures to slot into a bench role.

Rangers' Tim Federowicz: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Saturday.

The Rangers designated both Federowicz and infielder Asdrubal Cabrera for assignment Wednesday, but only the former will stick around in the organization after the latter was granted his release upon clearing waivers. Texas appears ready to commit to younger backstops Jose Trevino and Isiah Kiner-Falefa as part of a timeshare behind the dish with Jeff Mathis, so Federowicz is unlikely to resurface in the big leagues again in 2019 unless an injury strikes one of the aforementioned three catchers.

Rangers' Tim Federowicz: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz was designated for assignment after Wednesday's win over the Mariners, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Federowicz started 22 games behind the plate since being acquired by the Rangers in early June, but his .169/.224/.366 slash line and 35.4 percent strikeout rate certainly left something to be desired. Jose Trevino will be called up to cover catching duties with Jeff Mathis in his place.

Rangers' Tim Federowicz: Sitting after back-to-back starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mariners.

Despite drawing starts both of the past two days, Federowicz still appears to be stuck in a timeshare behind the dish with Jeff Mathis, who gets the nod at catcher in the series finale. Federowicz is batting just .180 since joining the Rangers in early June and could lose his spot on the active roster once the team decides Isiah Kiner-Falefa is ready to return from Triple-A Nashville.

Rangers' Tim Federowicz: Pops third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz went 2-for-3 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Angels.

The veteran catcher only has seven hits in 14 games since joining the Rangers, but three of them have left the yard. Federowicz will continue backing up Jeff Mathis until Isiah Kiner-Falefa (finger) returns from the IL.

Rangers' Tim Federowicz: Slams first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer as the Rangers defeated the Athletics 10-5 in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday.

Playing his first game as a Ranger, Federowicz homered to break the game open by lifting the Rangers to a 10-4 lead. The 31-year-old backstop is likely to split time with Jeff Mathis as Isiah Kiner-Falefa (finger) is currently on the injured list.

June 8, 2019 04:08 PM
Rangers' Tim Federowicz: Traded to Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz was traded from Cleveland to Texas on Friday in exchange for cash or a player to be named later.

The veteran will head immediately to the big leagues to serve as the backup catcher behind Jeff Mathis while Isiah Kiner-Falefa (finger) is on the injured list. Federowicz owns a .199/.247/.323 slash line over parts of seven seasons and is unlikely to make a significant fantasy impact during his time on the big-league roster.

Indians' Tim Federowicz: Gets MiLB deal from Tribe
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz signed a minor-league contract with the Indians on Thursday.

Federowicz's contract includes an invitation to big-league spring training, but he won't be a strong candidate to crack the Opening Day roster unless one of Roberto Perez or Kevin Plawecki begins the campaign on the injured list. A 31-year-old journeyman, Federowicz has appeared in 134 games at the MLB level between the Dodgers, Cubs, Giants, Reds and Astros, submitting a .199/.247/.323 slash line.

Reds' Tim Federowicz: Outrighted from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz was outrighted from the 40-man roster and sent to Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday.

Federowicz cleared waivers and will remain in Cincinnati's organization after spending a majority of September with the big-league team. Across 60 games at the Triple-A level in 2018, he slashed .297/.372/.486 with seven home runs and 31 RBI.

Reds' Tim Federowicz: Called up as third catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz's contract was selected by the Reds on Tuesday.

Federowicz is the classic third catcher, having received major-league playing time in each of the last eight seasons but appearing in more than 23 games just once. He'll fill that role for the Reds in September, stuck behind Tucker Barnhart and Curt Casali.

Reds' Tim Federowicz: Gets minor-league deal from Cincinnati
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Thursday.

The veteran backstop didn't take long to find work after he elected free agency last week rather than remaining in the Astros organization when he went unclaimed off waivers. He'll offer the Reds some experienced depth behind the plate in the upper levels of the minors and could be first in line for a promotion to the big leagues if either Tucker Barnhart or No. 2 catcher Curt Casali should succumb to an injury in the second half.

Tim Federowicz: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz passed through waivers unclaimed but elected free agency instead of reporting to Triple-A Fresno, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Federowicz's time within the Astros' organization has come to an end after he was designated for assignment by the club last week. He only played in 10 games for the big-league team in 2018, as he spent most of his time with Fresno before being recalled in early July due to Brian McCann's (knee) placement on the DL. He will look to latch on with another organization in the coming days, though it's highly unlikely that he will make an impact in the majors.

Astros' Tim Federowicz: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz was designated for assignment by the Astros on Thursday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Federowicz was cast off the roster following Houston's acquisition of catcher Martin Maldonado on Thursday. Through 10 games with the big-league team, Federowicz hit just .206/.229/.294 with 13 strikeouts. He will now be subject to the waiver wire, but could wind up returning to Triple-A Fresno if he passes through unclaimed.

Astros' Tim Federowicz: Drives in first runs of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Friday's 11-4 win over the White Sox.

Federowicz's two-run double in the fourth inning brought the first runs he's driven in as a member of the Astros. He's played in three of four games since being called up from Triple-A Fresno and should be with the club for as long as it takes Brian McCann to return from right knee surgery. The original estimate was that McCann would need between four and six weeks, but the catcher told David Barron of the Houston Chronicle that he plans to be back before the end of the season, which suggests a longer absence. At any rate, Federowicz should get two or three starts per week until McCann's back.

Astros' Tim Federowicz: Needed immediately
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz replaced the injured Max Stassi (hand) in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Rangers. He went went 1-for-3 with a run scored.

Stassi was injured during an at-bat in the first inning, when he took a pitch off his right hand. Enter Federowicz, who had been recalled earlier in the day after Brian McCann (knee) was placed on the disabled list. X-rays on Stassi came back negative, but manager A.J. Hinch, a former catcher, may want to give the backstop a day off Wednesday. Evan Gattis can fill in if needed, and Federowicz proved his chops while guiding Tuesday's starter, Dallas Keuchel, through seven innings of two-run ball.

Astros' Tim Federowicz: Called up to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz was added to the Astros' roster Tuesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Federowicz will be up to back up Max Stassi after Brian McCann (knee) was placed on the disabled list. The 30-year-old has a .195/.243/.312 line in 325 major-league plate appearances spread across seven seasons, though he has hit an impressive .328/.404/.560 in 38 games for Triple-A Fresno this season.

Astros' Tim Federowicz: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz will head to Triple-A Fresno after clearing waivers Sunday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic Houston reports.

Federowicz was designated for assignment Friday, and after failing to draw interest from other organizations while on waivers, he'll head to the Astros' Triple-A affiliate. He went 1-for-7 with a double and three strikeouts in two games for Houston during his last major-league stint.

June 8, 2018 04:08 PM
Astros' Tim Federowicz: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Federowicz was designated for assignment by the Astros on Friday, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet reports.

Federowicz proved to be expendable with the return of Brian McCann (knee) from the 10-day disabled list. During his brief stint with the big-league club, Federowicz played in two games, going 1-for-7 with a double and recording three strikeouts.
