Pirates' Phillip Evans: Set for surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans will undergo surgery to repair his broken jaw, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Evans landed on the 45-day injured list earlier in the month after sustaining a broken jaw and a concussion in a collision with teammate Gregory Polanco. While it was originally thought that he wouldn't require surgery, it turns out the 27-year-old will need a wire put in his jaw. Evans is eligible to return at the end of September, but the Pirates are preparing as though he'll miss the remainder of the season.

Pirates' Phillip Evans: Moves to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (jaw) was placed on the 45-day injured list Sunday.

The 27-year-old sustained a broken jaw and a concussion in a collision with teammate Gregory Polanco on Saturday, so this move was inevitable. Evans doesn't have a clear timetable for his return and isn't expected to require surgery on his jaw, but he won't be eligible to be activated until late September, so he may be done for the season.

Pirates' Phillip Evans: Suffers broken jaw, concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans sustained a fractured jaw and a concussion after colliding with teammate Gregory Polanco in Saturday's 11-5 loss to the Tigers, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Mackey relays that Evans isn't expected to require surgery to address the broken jaw, but the two injuries will almost certainly force him to the 10-day injured list and could very well spell an end to his season. The injury is a tough break for the 27-year-old, who earned a spot on the Pirates' Opening Day roster after a strong spring training and summer camp. After initially beginning the season as a utility man, Evans had settled into an everyday role of late and was slashing .359/.444/.487 with a home run, nine RBI and six runs in 11 games on the campaign. Evans' absence likely paves the way for Colin Moran to see more action as the club's everyday designated hitter while opening up more reps at third base for Erik Gonzalez.

Pirates' Phillip Evans: Exits after collision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was removed from Saturday's game against the Tigers on a stretcher after colliding with teammate Gregory Polanco in the field, Stephen J. Nesbitt of The Athletic reports.

Evans was hit in the head by Polanco's elbow as the two went after a ball in foul territory, and he remained motionless on ground after the collision. The specifics of the injury remains unclear, but he'll likely need to clear the concussion protocol before retaking the field.

Pirates' Phillip Evans: Cracks first MLB homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans went 3-for-5 with a home run, three runs scored and four RBI in Friday's 17-13 extra-innings loss to the Tigers.

Getting the start in right field and hitting sixth, Evans delivered his best performance yet, taking Matthew Boyd deep in the fifth inning for his first career big-league homer. The 27-year-old, who came into the season with only 61 plate appearances in the bigs, is now slashing .378/.452/.514 through 10 games for Pittsburgh, and manager Derek Shelton will continue to find room for him in the starting lineup as long as he's scorching hot at the plate.

Pirates' Phillip Evans: Handling near-everyday role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans will start at third base and bat second Thursday against the Twins.

Evans will crack the lineup for the fifth time in six games, and manager Derek Shelton should continue to find a spot in the starting nine for the 27-year-old at third base, designated hitter or in left field while he continues to wield a hot bat. After multi-hit efforts in his last two starts, Evans is currently sitting on a .393 average across 33 plate appearances on the season.

Pirates' Phillip Evans: Collects three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and one RBI in Sunday's 5-1 win over St. Louis.

Evans tacked on an insurance run with his RBI double in the eighth inning. It's unclear where the 27-year-old utilityman will see regular playing time, but the NL adopting the designated hitter should help him as long as he can hold his own at the dish.

Pirates' Phillip Evans: Earns first start for Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans will start at third base and bat sixth against the Cardinals on Saturday.

Evans has an opportunity for playing time, provided he can replicate the offense he's shown at the minor-league level. Colin Moran, who started at third base Friday, will serve as the team's designated hitter Saturday.

Pirates' Phillip Evans: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans will break summer camp as part of Pittsburgh's 30-man roster.

The backup gives manager Derek Shelton versatility in the field and pop at the plate. Evans has previously struggled at the major-league level but likely has the best opportunity of his career. If he does show any power then he could earn additional playing time on a power-starved team.

Pirates' Phillip Evans: Helps roster chances Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Monday's game against Cleveland.

The Pirates are looking for power and Evans' dinger off of a 94-mph Mike Clevinger fastball may have secured him a spot on the big-league team. His ability to play multiple positions -- he played at both third base and right field Monday -- also gives the non-roster invitee a chance to make the Opening Day 30-man roster. The 27-year-old hit 17 homers at the Triple-A level in 2019 and would likely serve as a bat off the bench.

Pirates' Phillip Evans: Included in player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates added Evans to their 60-man player pool.

Evans has the ability to play first base, second base and third base, giving him the defensive flexibility Pittsburgh is looking for. He's spent the majority of time toiling at the Triple-A level over the last three campaigns, however, and it remains to be seen whether he'll see any action with the Pirates.

Pirates' Phillip Evans: Invited to Pirates camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans signed with the Pirates as a non-roster invitee Tuesday.

The 27-year-old has 34 major-league games under his belt, all for the Mets in 2017 and 2018. He spent 2019 at Triple-A Iowa in the Cubs' system, hitting .283/.371/.470 (good for a 106 wRC+).

Cubs' Phillip Evans: Shipped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs reassigned Evans to their minor-league camp Saturday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Evans was one of 15 players sent packing from big-league camp as the Cubs trimmed their spring roster down to 40. The 26-year-old's lack of a 40-man roster spot hurts his chances of immediately resurfacing in the big leagues in 2019, but his ability to play the outfield and all over the diamond could come in handy when the Cubs inevitably lose position players to the injured list.

Cubs' Phillip Evans: Inks deal with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (knee) agreed to a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Wednesday, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

Evans missed the last two months of the 2018 season due to a fractured left tibia, but he should be back to full health by the time spring training rolls around. The infielder played in 15 games for the Mets, going 3-for-21 with one RBI and one steal in his time with the major-league club. Evans will provide some added depth for the Cubs at the Triple-A level.

Phillip Evans: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (knee) chose to become a free agent after getting outrighted from the Mets' 40-man roster Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Evans played in just 34 games across the last two season for the Mets, going 13-for-54 with two doubles and a pair of RBI during his brief opportunities in the big leagues. The 26-year-old was forced to miss the final two months of the season after fracturing his left tibia, but he's expected to be fully recovered prior to spring training.

Mets' Phillip Evans: Shifted to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans (knee) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

This move will sideline Evans for the remainder of the 2018 season since he initially hit the DL on Aug. 2. Evans will concentrate on recovering from a fractured left tibia over the next couple months, though there shouldn't be any concern regarding his availability for next year. In a subsequent move, the Mets selected the contract of Daniel Zamora and placed Bobby Wahl (hamstring) on the 10-day disabled list.

Mets' Phillip Evans: On DL with broken leg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a fractured left tibia.

Evans said that he will have a check-up with his doctor in a month to see what progress has been made, so there's a chance he will return to the field this season. The infielder suffered the injury during Wednesday's game when Adam Eaton slid into second base in the first inning. In a corresponding move, the club activated Todd Frazier (ribs) from the DL.

Mets' Phillip Evans: To undergo MRI on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans will get an MRI on his left knee Thursday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Evans was officially removed from Wednesday's game with left knee discomfort, but the infielder fears that he suffered more than a minor injury, so he will go in for further evaluation prior to Thursday's game versus Atlanta.

Mets' Phillip Evans: Dealing with knee discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans was removed from Wednesday's contest due to left knee discomfort, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

Evans will undergo further testing and should be considered day-to-day heading into Thursday's series opener against Atlanta. That said, Evans will likely take a seat on the bench even if he is healthy enough to play with Jeff McNeil getting regular time at the keystone.

Mets' Phillip Evans: Exits with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Evans left Wednesday's game against the Nationals early with an apparent injury, Tim Britton of The Athletic New York reports.

Evans was involved in a collision with Adam Eaton at second base in the first inning. He was replaced by Jose Reyes. The nature and severity of his injury are not yet clear.
