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+).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Evans was called up by the Mets on Tuesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Evans has appeared in seven games for the Mets this season, going 1-for-9 with five strikeouts. He'll likely fill a utility role for the team. A corresponding move has not yet been announced.
Evans was placed on the minor-league disabled list with an undisclosed injury Thursday, Betsy Helfand of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
The nature of Evans' injury isn't clear, but the placement was retroactive to Monday, so he'll be eligible to return to action next Monday if healthy. Evans is 1-for-9 for the Mets this season and is hitting .240/.318/.497 for Triple-A Las Vegas.
Evans cleared waivers and was assigned to Triple-a Las Vegas on Friday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Evans was designated for assignment by the Mets on Wednesday, but will remains with Las Vegas after passing through waivers, as expected. The 25-year-old is slashing .255/.323/.531 with 11 home runs in 145 at-bats for the 51s this season.
Evans was designated for assignment by the Mets on Wednesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Evans will be subjected to waivers in the coming week, but will remain with Triple-A Las Vegas in the event that he passes through unclaimed. During seven games with the big-league club this year, he's gone 1-for-9 with five strikeouts.
Evans was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.
Evans appeared in just three games -- starting one -- during his most recent stint with the Mets, so he'll head back to the minors for the time being in order to see more consistent at-bats. The utility man will continue to serve as organizational depth in the minors.
Evans was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday, Tim Britton of The Athletic New York reports.
The utility player is hitting .248/.319/.527 with 10 home runs and two steals in 144 plate appearances at Triple-A, but that power has not translated to the majors, as he has a .049 ISO in 46 career MLB plate appearances. He will be an option off the bench going forward.
Evans was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.
Evans has gone 1-for-8 in two brief stints with the Mets this season. He was optioned to make way for Jose Bautista. The 25-year-old could be back in a utility role throughout the season.
Evans was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday and is starting in left field and hitting fifth against the Blue Jays.
It's hard to take much from Evans' .278/.366/.333 slash line in just 41 MLB plate appearances, but he has a 1.259 OPS with six home runs in 32 at-bats against southpaws this year at Triple-A. While that's also a tiny sample size, that level of damage is hard to ignore. He is facing southpaw J.A. Happ in this contest, which is why he is hitting in the middle of the order. Yoenis Cespedes (hip) was placed on the disabled list as a corresponding move. Evans could continue to get starts against lefties while Cespedes is on the shelf. In addition to left field, Evans has seen starts at third base, second base and first base this year at Triple-A.
Evans was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Evans made the Opening Day roster as a bench player, but he wound up going hitless in his two pinch-hit appearances. He'll head back to the minors to get regular playing time, clearing up a roster spot for Michael Conforto (shoulder) to make his return to the lineup.
Evans was officially promoted to the Opening Day roster Thursday, MLB.com reports.
Evans won one of the Mets' final bench spots with a .261/.382/.457 showing in the Grapefruit League. He figures to be used sparingly and could get bumped when a need arises elsewhere on the roster.
Evans will earn a spot on the Mets' Opening Day roster, a source informed Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record.
While it won't be official until the Mets select his contract and whittle their roster down to 25 men for the season opener, Evans appears to have secured his place with the big club thanks to his standout showing in spring training. He'll be a part of a five-man bench and should give the Mets some needed versatility thanks to his ability to play all over the infield and act as an emergency No. 3 catcher.
