Cory Spangenberg: To play overseas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg signed a contract with Seibu on Thursday, Patrick Newman of NPBTracker.com reports.

Spangenberg chose free agency at the beginning of November after Milwaukee outrighted him from the 40-man roster. He hit .232 with two home runs, 10 RBI and three stolen bases over 32 contests with the Brewers in 2019.

Cory Spangenberg: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg was outrighted to Triple-A San Antonio on Friday and elected free agency.

Spangenberg was a later addition to the 2019 roster, and he came through in clutch moments for Milwaukee down the stretch. He slashed .232/.277/.358 with two home runs, 10 RBI and three stolen bases over 32 contests.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Gets fourth start in five games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg will start in left field and bat sixth Sunday against the Rockies.

Spangenberg will close out the regular season with four starts in the final five games, as injuries to Lorenzo Cain (ankle) and Ryan Braun (calf) will open up a spot for him in the outfield. So long as both of the banged-up outfielders are able to make it back for the postseason, Spangenberg isn't likely to see regular usage in October.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Providing late-season boost
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg went 2-for-3 with a triple and three RBI in Monday's victory over the Padres.

Spangenberg spent the bulk of the season with the Brewers' Triple-A affiliate, but he has played a key role late in the season, particularly the last two days, over which he picked up four hits and five RBI. He has been playing second base regularly, but that will no longer be the case when Keston Hiura (hamstring) returns to action, likely sometime this week. However, according to The Brewer Nation, manager Craig Counsell said after Monday's game that Spangenberg could see some action at shortstop -- in place of Orlando Arcia -- when Hiura is back in the lineup.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Held out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Marlins.

Spangenberg started the last 10 games at second base and tallied one hit in nine of them, but he will be held out Thursday with manager Craig Counsell electing to give the right-handed-hitting Hernan Perez the start at second base against southpaw Caleb Smith. More days off could be in store for Spangenberg in the near future, as Perez resumes his utility role with shortstop Orlando Arcia back with the team, and Keston Hiura (hamstring) could be back in the lineup sometime next week.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Hits first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg went 1-for-4 with a home run in Thursday's 10-5 loss to the Cubs.

Making his third consecutive start, Spangenberg hit his first home run of the season in the sixth inning off Brad Wieck. The 28-year-old was optioned to the minors back in March, but was called up on August 24 after a successful stint with Triple-A San Antonio. He should see more playing time if the power continues.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Gets third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg will man third base and bat seventh Wednesday against the Cardinals.

He'll pick up his third consecutive start, including his second in a row at the hot corner with Mike Moustakas tending to a wrist injury. Moustakas is viewed as day-to-day and could be ready to reclaim starting duties in Friday's series opener with the Cubs, but Spangenberg's inclusion in the lineup for three straight days at least implies that he's moved ahead of Hernan Perez as the Brewers' top utility infielder.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Returns to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg was called up from Triple-A San Antonio on Saturday.

Spangenberg was designated for assignment by the Brewers back in May, but he has worked his way back to the major-league team by batting .344/.403/.557 with 12 homers and 23 stolen bases in 82 games with San Antonio since the move was made. He may just be up to provide depth, though it's possible Spangenberg gets some run at shortstop in the immediate future with Orlando Arcia batting .204 since the All-Star break. Spangenberg has made 16 starts at short for San Antonio this year.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Remains in organization
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg cleared waivers Thursday and was outrighted to Triple-A San Antonio.

It's no big surprise that Spangenberg went unclaimed, as the 28-year-old is off to a poor start for San Antonio, hitting .212/.305/.317 in 32 games. He'll remain as organizational depth for Milwaukee.

May 14, 2019 11:48 AM
Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Dropped from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Brewers plan to designate Spangenberg for assignment Tuesday.

The transaction opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for top prospect Keston Hiura, who will be promoted from Triple-A San Antonio ahead of Tuesday's game against the Phillies and presumably take over as the Brewers' everyday second baseman. If Spangenberg passes through waivers unclaimed, he would remain in the Brewers' farm system as a utility man at San Antonio. Over 118 plate appearances in the Pacific Coast League this season, Spangenberg was slashing just .212/.305/.317 while striking out more than a third of the time.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg was optioned to minor-league camp Friday.

The Brewers couldn't find room for Spangenberg or fellow utility man Tyler Saladino, as Hernan Perez is set to fill a versatile bench role. Spangenberg will have multiple routes back to the big leagues, though his .258/.318/.391 career slash line limits his fantasy appeal when opportunities do arrive.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Still competing for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg went 2-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's spring game against the Padres.

Spangenberg has enjoyed facing his former team this spring, going 3-for-6 with two RBI over two games. Overall, he has gone 11-for-44 with three home runs and seven RBI while posting a .783 OPS. He's certainly in position to break camp with a bench spot on the Brewers' roster, but with the team bringing back Mike Moustakas to start at second base and Spangenberg having an option remaining, the Brewers could opt to have him open the season in the minors.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Knocks another homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Friday's game against the Mariners.

He put the Brewers on the board with his solo shot in the sixth inning, which was followed by a solo homer from Hernan Perez. While both of Spangenberg's hits this spring have left the yard, the utility man is hitting just .167 with four strikeouts through 12 at-bats.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Belts first homer of spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Angels.

Spangenberg launched his first homer of spring training in the first inning off of Jaime Barria. With the Brewers reprising the duo of Travis Shaw and Mike Moustakas, one of whom will likely be manning second base most days, Spangenberg seems to simply be a depth option at this point. He should continue to see plenty of opportunities at the dish this spring.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Role remains undetermined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg is no longer projected to share time at second base in 2019, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Spangenberg was originally expected to split time at the keystone with Hernan Perez in 2019, but the addition of Mike Moustakas leaves the soon-to-be 28-year-old without a clear role heading into camp. Manager Craig Counsell said the Brewers plan on giving Spangenberg a look around the diamond in spring training before determining how he'll factor into the team's plans. He does have an option remaining, so Spangenberg could open the season in the minors if he fails to carve out a role for himself this spring.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Expected to share time at keystone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg will likely split time with Hernan Perez and Tyler Saladino at second base in 2019, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Unless Milwaukee signs or trades for a second baseman that's already proven himself in the big leagues, manager Craig Counsell expects to use a number of players at second. Along with Perez and Saladino, Travis Shaw also spent time at the keystone, making him another viable option at the position if needed.

Brewers' Cory Spangenberg: Snagged by Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg signed a one-year, $1.2 million contract with the Brewers on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Spangenberg was let go by the Padres near the end of November after he refused a minor-league assignment. He'll earn $1.2 million if he makes the Brewers' major-league roster and $250,000 if he ends up in the minors. With the departure of Jonathan Schoop and the limited experience Travis Shaw has at second base, there should be plenty of opportunities for Spangenberg to carve out a role for himself during spring training.

November 23, 2018 12:24 PM
Cory Spangenberg: Cut loose by San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg was released by the Padres on Wednesday.

The transaction likely indicates that Spangenberg refused to accept his outright assignment to Triple-A El Paso after going unclaimed off waivers when the Padres designated him for assignment earlier in the week. Spangenberg will now look to find a home elsewhere before the start of spring training, though he may have to settle for a minor-league deal after he regressed at the plate for San Diego in 2018. Over his 329 plate appearances with the Padres last season, Spangenberg delivered a .660 OPS, which represented a 63-point decline from his 2017 mark.

November 21, 2018 11:24 AM
Padres' Cory Spangenberg: DFA'd by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg was designated for assignment by San Diego on Tuesday.

Spangenberg was bumped off the 40-man roster to make room for a more promising young player ahead of the Rule 5 draft deadline. The 27-year-old second baseman struggled to a .235/.298/.362 slash line through 116 games in 2018 after posting a .264/.322/.401 line the year before.

September 30, 2018 02:08 PM
Padres' Cory Spangenberg: Held out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Spangenberg is not in the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

With southpaw Robbie Ray taking the mound for Arizona, Spangenberg will head to the bench to avoid a lefty-on-lefty matchup. Unless he makes a pinch-hit appearance, the infielder will finish the season with a career-worst .656 OPS. Jose Pirela will fill in for him at second base Sunday.
