LaMarre signed a minor-league contract with the Rays on Monday as a non-roster invitee, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
LaMarre operated primarily with Triple-A Gwinnett in 2019, hitting .311/.380/.477 with nine home runs and 19 RBI over 112 games. He'll get the chance to work with the major-league coaching staff during spring training, and he could serve in a reserve role on the major-league roster at some point this season even after a disappointing stint in the majors last year.
LaMarre has been outrighted off the 40-man roster, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
The Twins traded for LaMarre in September amid a rash of outfield injuries. He played in 14 games and was used in some key spots in the pennant race, but hit just .217 with a .786 OPS. LaMarre will become a free agent if he clears waivers. He showed enough in his stint in the majors to get an invite to spring training and compete for a reserve role with a team.
LaMarre went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a stolen base in Friday's 6-2 win over the Royals.
LaMarre provided the Twins' final runs of the game with his blast off Royals starter Eric Skoglund in the third inning. LaMarre then showed some speed with his first stolen base of the year in the sixth after reaching on an infield single. The 30-year-old outfielder now has two homers, three RBI and three runs scored over 22 at-bats this year.
LaMarre was traded to Minnesota from Atlanta in exchange for cash considerations on Sunday.
He'll add needed outfield depth for the Twins in September with several outfielders currently injured, though he may not be in line for very many at-bats. He'll fill the 40-man roster spot which was vacated after Michael Pineda was suspended Saturday.
LaMarre agreed to a minor-league contract with the Braves on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.
LaMarre began last season with the Twins, but finished the season with the White Sox after being designated for assignment and subsequently claimed during the summer. Between the two teams, he slashed .279/.322/.382 with two home runs and 18 RBI across 180 plate appearances. The 29-year-old has enjoyed little major-league success outside of that sample, however, so he figures to be more of an organizational depth piece for the Braves as things stand now.
LaMarre was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday and is set to become a free agent at the conclusion of the season.
Senior vice president and general manager Rick Hahn didn't rule out LaMarre's return to the organization but stated that Friday's moves -- the team also outrighted Danny Farquhar (head) and Rob Scahill -- provided the club with flexibility for the offseason. In 76 games split between Chicago and Minnesota this year, LaMarre slashed .279/.322/.382 with a pair of home runs and 18 RBI.
LaMarre went 3-for-3 with a double and three RBI in Friday's win over the Cubs.
LaMarre plated a run in the fourth on an RBI double, followed by an RBI single in the sixth and a sacrifice fly in the seventh to give the White Sox a comfortable 10-1 lead. He's slashing .286/.330/.391 with two home runs and 18 RBI through 73 games this season with a little over a week remaining in the regular season.
LaMarre went 1-for-3 in Tuesday's 8-3 loss to the Tigers.
LaMarre made his third start in four games as manager Rick Renteria is fond of getting those righty-lefty matchups. In this case, the right-handed-hitting LaMarre started in left field against the left-handed Francisco Liriano. With Avisail Garcia (knee) and Leury Garcia (hamstring) sidelined, Renteria has been juggling bodies in and out of the corner outfield spots. Against lefties, he can deploy LaMarre and Ryan Cordell; for right-handers, he has Nicky Delmonico and Daniel Palka.
LaMarre (hip) is available for Monday's game against the Tigers but is not in the lineup, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports.
LaMarre left Sunday's game against the Red Sox with a sore right hip. He only starts occasionally for Chicago, so his absence from the lineup Monday isn't necessarily injury-related.
LaMarre left Sunday's game against the Red Sox due to right hip soreness, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
LaMarre went 1-for-4 prior to being replaced by Nicky Delmonico later in the game. LaMarre will be considered day-to-day moving forward. The White Sox are slated to begin a three-game series with the Tigers on Monday.
LaMarre went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a home run and four RBI in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Yankees.
The journeyman outfielder set a new personal best with the four-RBI night while hitting his second homer of the year, and just the third of his career. LaMarre should continue getting starts against southpaws down the stretch for the White Sox, but the 29-year-old came into the game with a .553 OPS for his big-league career, so don't expect a repeat performance.
LaMarre started in left field and went 2-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Thursday's 7-2 loss to the Tigers.
This was LaMarre's first start in seven games and it came against Detroit left-hander Matthew Boyd. There hasn't been a strict platoon in left field under manager Rick Renteria, but he's been away from the team dealing with a bout of lightheadedness. In the meantime, bench coach Joe McEwing is serving as the interim manager and may have a different philosophy with respect to left field. The right-handed hitting LaMarre will share left field with left-handed hitters like Daniel Palka and Nicky Delmonico.
LaMarre was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.
LaMarre will take the roster spot of Leury Garcia (hamstring), who was sent to the disabled list in a corresponding move. The 29-year-old owns a .264/.313/.339 slash line across 52 major-league games this season (split between the Twins and White Sox).
LaMarre was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.
LaMarre will head back to the minors with Leury Garcia (hamstring) expected to return from the disabled list Friday. The 29-year-old outfielder has hit .273/.273/.455 in eight big-league games with the White Sox so far this season.
LaMarre went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Tigers.
LaMarre's first career homer in the second inning turned out to be the game-winning hit. It was nice that the Michigan native could delight a subset of fans at Detroit's Comerica Park but LaMarre is a 29-year-old career minor leaguer that's filling space on the White Sox's roster. He's not expected to provide much fantasy value. When he's in the starting lineup, LaMarre lines up in left field, a position he shares with Nicky Delmonico and Daniel Palka.
LaMarre started in left field and went 2-for-3 with a double in Tuesday's 4-3 extra-innings loss to the Yankees.
LaMarre made his first start since being called up from Triple-A Charlotte. He was summoned from the minors when the White Sox placed Leury Garcia (hamstring) on the disabled list. He'll be splitting time in left field with Nicky Delmonico and Daniel Palka until the organization feels Eloy Jimenez (flu-like symptoms) is ready for his big-league debut.
LaMarre was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.
LaMarre will rejoin the big club in order to provide additional outfield depth with Leury Garcia (hamstring) landing on the disabled list. The 29-year-old owns a combined .262/.316/.308 across 45 games with the Twins and White Sox this season. He'll be a candidate to pick up starts in the outfield while Garcia is sidelined.
LaMarre was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte following Friday's tilt against the Mariners, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
LaMarre will head to the minor leagues after hitting .262 with five extra-base hits and nine RBI through 45 games this season. The move was made to make room on the 25-man roster for the return of Avisail Garcia (hamstring), who's expected to come off the disabled list Saturday.
LaMarre went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Friday's 9-6 win over the Royals.
This was LaMarre's first start since he was called up after being claimed off waivers from the Twins earlier this week. He was part of a lineup shuffle designed to spell struggling designated hitter Matt Davidson. Daniel Palka served as the DH while LaMarre started in left field.
LaMarre was called up by the White Sox on Tuesday.
Avisail Garcia (hamstring) was placed on the disabled list and LaMarre was promoted in a corresponding move. LaMarre can play all three outfield positions and will fill the fifth-outfielder role during his time with the big club, likely only seeing occasional starts against left-handed pitching. He hit .263/.321/.313 in 43 games with the Twins earlier this season before being designated for assignment.
