Rays' Rocky Gale: Headed to Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale was traded from the Dodgers to the Rays on Wednesday in exchange for cash considerations, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

Gale has spent most of the season at Triple-A, compiling a .250/.303/.370 line with two home runs and one stolen base in 30 games there. He'll provide organizational catching depth for the Rays.

Dodgers' Rocky Gale: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale was outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Gale had been on the Dodgers' 40-man roster since having his contract selected by the team last September, but he's being removed in advance of the July 31 trade deadline. The 31-year-old has a .250/.303/.370 slash line in 30 games with Oklahoma City this season.

Dodgers' Rocky Gale: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.

Gale made one appearance off the bench for the Dodgers during his brief stint in the majors, going hitless in his only at-bat. The veteran will continue to serve as catching depth.

Dodgers' Rocky Gale: Summoned to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gales was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to Friday's game against Washington.

Gale was promoted to the major leagues after the Dodgers traded away Travis d'Arnaud to the Rays earlier in the day. Gale went 1-for-14 with seven strikeouts over four games with Los Angeles at the beginning of the year, and he'll be available off the bench for Friday's matchup if needed.

Dodgers' Rocky Gale: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Gale received four starts during his time on the roster, going 2-for-14 with seven strikeouts. Russell Martin (back) was activated off the injured list in a corresponding move.

Dodgers' Rocky Gale: Seeing scarce playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale will start at catcher and bat eighth Thursday against the Cubs, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Even with top catcher Austin Barnes scuffling at the plate of late, Gale hasn't seen any increase in his workload. Gale will be making just his fourth start since getting the call from Triple-A Oklahoma City on April 10 and will likely only be included in the lineup when Barnes requires a routine maintenance day.

April 10, 2019 04:20 PM
Dodgers' Rocky Gale: Summoned to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

Gale will take the roster spot of Russell Martin (back), who was sent to the injured list in a corresponding move. The 31-year-old Gale should serve as the team's No. 2 catcher (behind Austin Barnes) until Martin is ready to return. He is just 2-for-22 (.091) in his big-league career.

March 10, 2019 09:04 PM
Dodgers' Rocky Gale: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale was optioned to the minor leagues Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Gale will return to the minors after getting some experience in big-league camp. His time in the major leagues has been limited throughout his career, as he's made just 22 plate appearances and has two hits (including a home run) to show for it.

Dodgers' Rocky Gale: Called up from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dodgers selected Gale's contract from Triple-A Oklahoma City ahead of Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

It had been reported a day earlier that Gale was on track to join the Dodgers for their series finale with Arizona, but the transaction wasn't made official until the team cleared a 40-man roster spot for the backstop by moving Brock Stewart (oblique) to the 60-day disabled list. Gale will likely be either third or fourth on the Dodgers' depth chart at catcher and is only expected to receive a handful of at-bats in September.

Dodgers' Rocky Gale: Will join big-league club Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale is expected to be called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.

The 30-year-old is slashing .281/.305/.383 in 318 plate appearances for Oklahoma City. However, Gale will simply serve as roster-expansion depth behind the solid backstop tandem of Yasmani Grandal and Austin Barnes.

March 21, 2018 04:56 PM
Dodgers' Rocky Gale: Returns to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dodgers reassigned Gale to minor-league camp Tuesday, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Gale signed a minor-league deal with the Dodgers in late February and the reassignment is hardly a surprise with Yasmani Grandal, Austin Barnes and Kyle Farmer currently healthy. The 30-year-old slashed .287/.328/.365 at the Triple-A level in 2017.

February 26, 2018 12:52 AM
Dodgers' Rocky Gale: Inks minor-league deal with Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Sunday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

Gale spent the majority of 2017 with Triple-A El Paso, where he slashed .278/.328/.365 before getting called up to the Padres. He appeared in just three games at the big-league level. The 30-year-old catcher has been invited to the Dodgers' major-league camp but will likely begin the season at Triple-A Oklahoma City as organizational depth.

Rocky Gale: Released by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale was released by San Diego on Friday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic San Diego reports.

Gale was designated for assignement three days earlier in order to make room for new signee Eric Hosmer. The 30-year-old catcher had been with the organization for eight years, reaching the majors for a total of 14 games. He has two career hits and one career home run.

Padres' Rocky Gale: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale has been designated for assignment to clear space for new signee Eric Hosmer, Dennis Lin of The Athletic San Diego reports.

Gale was expected to compete for the backup catcher spot with A.J. Ellis and Raffy Lopez, but that seems unlikely now. The 29-year-old hit .278/.328/.365 in 103 games for Triple-A El Paso last season. In three major-league games, he went 1-for-10 with a home run. He'll remain organizational depth for the Padres, assuming he isn't claimed off waivers.

February 14, 2018 07:00 PM
Padres' Rocky Gale: Gunning for backup catcher role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale enters spring training as one of the top candidates to be Austin Hedges' backup in 2018, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Hedges is the clear first option at manager Andy Green's disposal, but the backup situation is much more up in the air. Gale's primary competition for the role is Raffy Lopez, a 30-year-old who belted 20 homers across three levels with the Blue Jays organization last season. Gale doesn't possess the same pop as Lopez, but he does have years of experience working with the Padres' minor-league pitchers and coaching staff. A strong spring showing could certainly put Gale at the top of the heap, although he'll need to show that he can make better contact against major-league pitching than he has in the past, with just two hits over 20 at-bats.

September 19, 2017 05:44 PM
Padres' Rocky Gale: Contract purchased from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale had his contract purchased from Triple-A El Paso on Monday.

He'll take the roster spot of Dusty Coleman, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding roster move. Gale spent 11 games time in the majors during the 2015 season, but he hasn't made it back since. He hit .278/.328/.365 in 103 games for El Paso this season and will be the fourth catcher on San Diego's active roster, so he isn't expected to see much playing time down the stretch.

April 29, 2016 03:25 PM
Padres' Rocky Gale: Receives promotion to Triple-A El Paso
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale was promoted to Triple-A El Paso on Thursday.

Gale will take over behind the plate for Austin Hedges, who is out four-to-six weeks with a hand injury. The 28-year-old batted .244/.319/.244 in 13 games with Double-A San Antonio and now gets a chance to showcase his skills at the next level. Hedges is still considered San Diego's catcher for the future, but Gale has a shot to impress.

March 28, 2016 04:39 PM
Padres' Rocky Gale: Reassigned to minor league camp Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gale was reassigned to minor league camp Monday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union Tribune reports.

Gale had a solid spring at the plate, but there's simply no spot for him on the 25-man roster with Derek Norris, Christian Bethancourt, and Austin Hedges all ahead of him in the pecking order behind the dish. He'll head back to Triple-A and act as organizational depth once again.
