McBride will head to minor-league camp Tuesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
McBride doesn't appear to be particularly close to returning to the big leagues, as the 33-year-old has a 28 wRC+ in 92 career games. He'll likely spend the season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, his hometown team.
McBride reached a minor-league agreement with Philadelphia on Friday which includes an invitation to spring training.
McBride was in the same exact position a year ago and wound up spending the entire season at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He slashed .242/.333/.479 with 10 home runs and 26 RBI, solid numbers but nothing worthy of a promotion. Expect to see him back with the IronPigs in 2019.
McBride agreed to a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training with the Phillies on Wednesday.
McBride didn't see any time in the majors during this past year, instead playing in 79 games with Triple-A Nashville within the A's system. The 32-year-old slashed an unimpressive .231/.299/.434 with 10 home runs and 49 RBI during his time with the Sounds. McBride will serve as organizational depth for the Phillies, and likely won't provide much help in terms of fantasy purposes moving forward.
McBride (back) went 2-for-3 with a double and a homer in Wednesday's Cactus League game.
McBride missed most of spring with a lat strain and is now 3-for-12 with a homer and five strikeouts. The 31-year-old will serve most of the year as organizational depth.
McBride (back) says he will be making throws to second base Saturday and is close to catching in a live game, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
McBride has been sidelined with a lat strain over the past few weeks, but current signs are pointing to a return in the near future. Regardless of how he performs in Cactus League play, he'll likely begin the season serving as organizational depth in the minors.
McBride (lat) will partake in a game against Team Italy in minor league camp Tuesday, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports.
He had been unable to throw due to a mild lat strain, but it sounds like things are improving to the point that he can play in what essentially amounts to a rehab game.
McBride (back) is unable to throw right now due to a mild lat strain, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
He has apparently been able to catch bullpen sessions, but hasn't been throwing back to the mound. It doesn't seem too serious, but McBride is likely locked in as organizational depth regardless.
McBride has re-signed with the A's on a minor league contract, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
There was no word of a spring training invite. It seems like a near certainty that McBride will serve as organizational depth in the minors for most of the year, as he did in 2016. McBride was summoned to the big club on four separate occasions this past season but totaled just 44 plate appearances, compiling a dismal .209/.227/.279 batting line.
McBride was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports.
The A's are doing some offseason roster management, and will clear a spot on the 40-man roster by outrighting McBride to Triple-A. A 31-year-old utility player with just 202 career plate appearances in the big leagues, McBride will work in a minor organizational depth role in 2017.
The A's recalled McBride from Triple-A Nashville on Friday, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports.
McBride posted a .781 OPS over 70 games with Nashville this season. He appeared in 15 games for the A's earlier in 2016 but posted just a .558 OPS in those contests. He will provide some catching depth behind starter Stephen Vogt, and could see some time in the outfield as well.
The A's optioned McBride to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday.
McBride was sent back to Nashville to clear a roster spot for the returning Stephen Vogt. He will garner consideration next time the A's need to bring up a catcher from the minors.
McBride was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Sunday. He'll start at catcher in the Athletics' game against the Pirates and bat eighth in the order.
McBride will assume the 25-man roster spot of Josh Phegley (knee), who was placed on the DL in a corresponding move. Phegley is scheduled to undergo an MRI to determine the extent of his strained right knee, and if surgery is deemed necessary, McBride could be up with the big club for an extended period. However, don't look for McBride to see regular at-bats, as he'll only be getting the nod behind the plate Sunday over the lefty-hitting Stephen Vogt due to southpaw Francisco Liriano starting for the Pirates.
McBride was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Friday.
The return of Josh Phegley (knee) from the DL spells the end of McBride's recent stint with the big league ball club. He'll head back down to Triple-A for more playing time after batting .222 with four strikeouts and one RBI in his 18 at-bats with the A's.
McBride is in the lineup Saturday, batting ninth and starting at catcher.
The A's will rest Stephen Vogt's legs Saturday by moving him to DH and putting the recently recalled McBride behind the plate. McBride has defensive versatility, as he can play first base, outfield, or catcher, but he lacks upside at the plate. In 63 Triple-A at-bats this season, McBride managed a paltry .175/.246/.286 slash line with 16 strikeouts.
McBride was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Friday.
McBride has not been impressive at the plate in the minor leagues, but with Mark Canha recently placed on the disabled list, the A's thought that McBride's ability to play outfield, first base, and catcher was valuable enough to warrant a callup. It'll be tough for him to make an impact given his struggles at the plate, though. To make room for him on the roster, right-hander Zach Neal was optioned to Triple-A.
McBride was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Friday.
McBride was optioned to make room on the big league roster for Sean Manaea, who will be the starting pitcher for the A's on Friday. The 30-year-old was only with the A's for two days before being sent back to Triple-A.
McBride had his contract selected by the A's on Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
McBride was added to the big league roster Wednesday primarily for defensive versatility given his ability to play the outfield, first base, and catcher. According to Slusser, backup catcher Josh Phegley is dealing with some wrist soreness, which makes McBride a viable emergency option behind the plate. That said, McBride offers very little fantasy upside given his career .199/.228/.305 slash line at the major league level. Felix Doubront was transferred to the 60-day DL to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for McBride.
Outfielder Matt McBride has been designated for assignment by the Rockies to make room on the roster for just-activated first baseman Justin Morneau.
McBride did not distinguish himself at the plate during his short stay with Colorado, He batted just .167 (7-for-42) with no RBI.
Rockies first baseman Ben Paulsen isn't in the starting lineup for Saturday's game. Paulsen has started 55 games, including the last seven.
Paulsen is being replaced in the lineup by Matt McBride, who gets his second start of the season at the position.
