Steve Baron: Time with Cleveland ends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Indians released Baron on Sunday.

Baron had been included in Cleveland's 60-man roster pool in early July, but he failed to receive a promotion from the alternate site at any point during the 2020 season. The 29-year-old catcher is now free to pursue opportunities with other organizations.

Indians' Steve Baron: Joins Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baron signed a minor-league deal with the Indians on Friday and was added to the 60-player pool.

Baron appeared in seven games for the Pirates last season but spent most of the year at Triple-A Indianapolis, where he posted a .512 OPS over 45 games. The 29-year-old brings catching depth to the 60-man pool, though he's unlikely to be much of a factor in the majors.

Pirates' Steve Baron: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baron was sent outright to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.

Baron was called up in early September to serve as depth behind the dish. He went 2-for-10 with a double and an RBI over seven contests.

Pirates' Steve Baron: Called up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baron was called up by the Pirates on Tuesday.

Triple-A Indianapolis' season came to a close Monday, and with that comes the second wave of September callups. Baron is the only one from Tuesday's group who was not previously on the 40-man. He didn't exactly hit his way onto the roster, slashing .180/.264/.248 in 45 games for Indy. Baron will merely provide catching depth behind Jacob Stallings and Elias Diaz over the final few weeks.

Pirates' Steve Baron: Joins Pittsburgh on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baron agreed Tuesday with the Pirates on a minor-league contract, John Perrotto of reports.

Baron could get a look with the Pirates at some point in 2018 if injuries pile up at catcher, but the 28-year-old will mainly function as organizational depth at the Triple-A level. He's seen action in just six career big-league games, logging one hit in 16 plate appearances.

Cardinals' Steve Baron: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baron cleared waivers Thursday, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Baron, who was designated for assignment earlier in the week, will report to Triple-A Memphis after passing through waivers untouched. The 27-year-old backstop owns an ugly .149/.197/.179 line across 20 games with the Redbirds this season.

Cardinals' Steve Baron: DFA'd by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baron was designated for assignment by the Cardinals on Tuesday.

With Yadier Molina returning from the disabled list Tuesday, Baron was no longer needed as additional catching depth. He'll now take a spin through waivers to determine where he lands next.

Cardinals' Steve Baron: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baron was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.

Baron will head back to the minors with Carson Kelly (hamstring) returning from the disabled list. The backstop only appeared in two games during his brief stint with the big club, going 1-for-5 with a single. Baron will continue to serve as organizational catching depth in the minors.

Cardinals' Steve Baron: Recalled from Memphis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baron was called up by St. Louis prior to Thursday's game against the Phillies, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

In a corresponding move, the club placed Carson Kelly (hamstring) on the DL. With Yadier Molina (groin) also on the shelf, Baron will share time with Francisco Pena behind the plate, though Pena is expected to receive the majority of the action. Baron has only appeared in four major-league games, all coming in 2015 with Seattle, and was hitting just .153/.167/.186 during 17 games for Triple-A Memphis this year.

Cardinals' Steve Baron: Agrees to deal with Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baron signed a minor-league deal with St. Louis in December, Jenifer Langosch of reports.

Baron has only appeared in four major-league games throughout the course of his professional career, all coming with the Mariners in 2015. During this past season, the 27-year-old split time for Seattle's minor-league affiliates, including a slash line of .256/.339/.329 for Triple-A Tacoma in 54 games. He will serve as additional organizational depth for the Redbirds moving forward.

Mariners' Steve Baron: Signs minor league pact with Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baron agreed to a minor league contract with the Mariners on Friday, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Baron was released earlier in the month after spending his eighth season as a member of the Mariners farm system. His numbers haven't been eye-popping, and given the other options behind the dish in Seattle, the 25-year-old is likely destined for another season in an organizational depth role.

Steve Baron: Released by Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baron was released by the Mariners on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old Baron will seek a new team after eight seasons in the Seattle organization. He could find a suitor in any team that needs deep catching depth.

Mariners' Steve Baron: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Baron was designated for assignment on Wednesday.

The Mariners made several minor roster moves, and needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster as a result. Baron will continue to serve as organizational catching depth.
