Brantly was outrighted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday.
Unsurprisingly, Brantly went unclaimed through waivers after the Phillies designated him for assignment over the weekend. The 30-year-old journeyman is expected to fill a depth role at catcher for Lehigh Valley.
Brantly was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Saturday.
Brantly was up for a single day while J.T. Realmuto was on the paternity list, striking out in his only plate appearance. The Phillies can be reasonably confident that he'll pass through waivers unclaimed, as he owns a career .229/.294/.332 slash line and hasn't recorded a big-league hit since 2017.
Brantly's contract was selected by the Phillies on Friday.
He will back up Andrew Knapp over the weekend while J.T. Realmuto is on the paternity list. It would be a surprise to see Brantly make more than one start during his likely brief time with the team, and his career .230/.294/.333 slash line in 126 major-league games doesn't make him a particularly interesting daily fantasy flyer if he does get into the lineup.
Brantly signed a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Friday which includes an invitation to spring training.
Brantly will provide some extra depth at the catching position with over 100 games at the major-league level under his belt. During the 2018 campaign, Brantly hit just .210/.252/.284 with two home runs and 21 RBI across 72 games in Triple-A.
Brantly signed a minor-league contract with the Indians on Saturday.
Brantly was cut loose by the Braves last Sunday after slashing .218/.254/.293 with Triple-A Gwinnett this season. The 29-year-old likely just bolsters the organization's catching depth with the departure of Francisco Mejia in the trade with the Padres for relievers Brad Hand and Adam Cimber.
The Braves released Brantly from his minor-league contract Sunday.
Triple-A Gwinnett cut ties with Brantly to make room for catching prospect Alex Jackson, who was promoted from Double-A Mississippi to fill the opening on the roster. Over 201 plate appearances at the Triple-A level this season, Brantly slashed .218/.254/.293 with one home run.
Brantly went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates.
He's having a good spring at the plate in his limited opportunities, going 8-for-18 with three homers, but with Tyler Flowers and Kurt Suzuki ahead of him on the depth chart, Brantly will begin the season at Triple-A Gwinnett. If injuries create a spot for him with the Braves, though, the 28-year-old does have some upside with his bat.
Brantly signed a minor-league contract with Atlanta on Friday, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.
Brantly spent time with the Reds and White Sox in 2017, mostly at the Triple-A level, as the 28-year-old appeared in just 14 major-league games. He did a fine job at each stop, and slashed .290/.389/.516 with two home runs and five RBI during his brief time with Chicago in the big leagues. Moving forward, he will likely provide organizational depth for the Braves while starting the season with Triple-A Gwinnett.
Brantly was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday, and will become a minor-league free agent following the conclusion of the 2017 season.
Brantly spent a majority of the 2017 season in Triple-A, but wound up appearing in 14 games at the big-league level with the White Sox. During that span, the catcher went 9-for-31 from the plate with one double, two home runs and five RBI. This move takes Brantly off the 40-man roster, dropping Chicago to 33 for the time being, as he becomes a free agent.
Brantly went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Angels.
This was Brantly's first homer and second extra-base hit since his contract was purchased from Triple-A Charlotte in late August. He's appeared in 12 games (seven starts), but has yet to start consecutive games. If you're trolling for catching help in the final days of the season, you should look past the 28-year-old Brantly.
Brantly had his contract purchased from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday.
Brantly was summoned to the White Sox to take the place of Nicky Delmonico, who was sent to the disabled list with a sprained wrist in a corresponding move. He's put together a respectable .290/.350/.442 slash line with 10 homers in 82 games between Triple-A Louisville and Charlotte. If he performs well, he could earn some at-bats as the designated hitter while Delmonico is on the shelf.
The White Sox signed Brantly to a minor-league contract Thursday.
Brantly, who was recently released by the Reds, will get another chance to win a major-league role with a familiar club. He was with the White Sox in 2015, running through the minors with a .310/.335/.483 combined line with Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte but batting just .121/.167/.242 in 36 plate appearances with the Pale Hose. Given how underwhelming Chicago's catcher picture has been, he could work his way back up to the majors before the end of the 2017 season.
The Reds released Brantly, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Brantly holds a career major-league line of .225/.286/.317 in 392 plate appearances but rattled off a .298/.335/.435 stint in 179 plate appearances for Triple-A Louisville this season. Perhaps the soon-to-be 28-year-old will garner interest from another organization. Meanwhile for Cincinnati, Stuart Turner likely will stick as the No. 3 option at catcher behind Devin Mesoraco and Tucker Barnhart.
Brantly was reassigned to minor-league camp Tuesday, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Following this move, Rule 5 pick Stuart Turner now appears locked in as the backup to Tucker Barnhart to begin the year with Devin Mesoraco (hip) still working himself back to full strength. Brantly, a .225/.286/.317 career hitter at the major-league level, went 10-for-31 with two doubles, four walks and five strikeouts in 19 Cactus League games.
The Reds will go north with only two catchers and won't consider beginning the season with three catchers, which leaves Brantly's status up in the air.
This doesn't mean the team won't consider adding Brantly to the team; rather, either Devin Mesoraco will be ready to can catch half the time, or he'll begin the year on the DL. Given that Mesoraco just started game action Sunday, this remains an open issue.
Brantly signed a minor league contract with the Reds on Friday that includes an invitation to spring training, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The 27-year-old catcher has made a few appearances in the big leagues, although he hasn't been able to translate his bat to the majors for the most part. Pair this with the plethora of other catchers in the Reds system, and it seems like Brantly will spend another year as organizational depth.
Brantly could get called up to replace the injured Steve Clevenger as the backup to Chris Iannetta.
Mike Zunino is also a possibility, but the Mariners might not want to interrupt his development plan just to catch a couple games a week in Seattle. The left-handed Brantly is batting .243 with six home runs in 40 games for Triple-A Tacoma. He's a career .225 hitter in the majors in 112 games, the last being a 14-game stint with the White Sox last September.
Brantly cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Brantley was designated for assignment Sunday, and now that he has gone through waivers unclaimed, he'll head to the minor leagues. The catcher hasn't been very impressive at the major league level in his career, but he could be called back up to Seattle if something happens to either backstop at the major league level.
Brantly was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Sunday.
The Mariners decided to go with Chris Iannetta and Steve Clevenger as their two catchers to open the season, leaving no room for Brantly on the roster. The team will now have 10 days to trade or release Brantly, but it's more likely the Mariners will try to pass him through waivers and then stash him at Triple-A Tacoma.
Brantly, who joined the Mariners only about two weeks ago, could win the backup catcher job, though Steve Clevenger is still the favorite, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Brantley was acquired March 12, but he has impressed in his short time with the club. The Mariners traded Mark Trumbo and his contract for Clevenger, so it would be a little surprising if he doesn't win the job. Both players are out of options, but the Mariners likely will try to sneak one through waivers. Both are also left-handed to starter Chris Iannetta's right-handed bat. The backup figures to catch about 50-60 games.
