Yankees' Socrates Brito: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito was reassigned to minor-league camp Wednesday.

Brito served as a non-roster invitee during spring training but hit .158 with one home run and seven strikeouts over 14 Grapefruit League appearances. The 28-year-old should serve as organizational depth at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this year.

Yankees' Socrates Brito: Invited to Yankees camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito signed with the Yankees as a non-roster invitee Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The 28-year-old has yet to show anything at the big-league level that indicates he deserves even a bench spot, hitting .179/.216/.309 in 99 games over parts of four seasons. He didn't play at all in 2020 after electing to opt out of the season. The Yankees do have quite a few injury-prone players in their outfield, so there's a possible path for at-bats for Brito, but there's little reason to believe he'll do much with them.

Pirates' Socrates Brito: Opting out of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito decided to opt out of the remainder of the 2020 season after his brother passed away from COVID-19 last week, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Brito was unable to make the Opening Day roster and has since been at the Pirates' alternate training site. He'll sit out the rest of the season after the tragic death of his sibling.

Pirates' Socrates Brito: Arrives at camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito (illness) arrived at the Pirates' camp Saturday, Adam Berry of reports.

Manager Derek Shelton revealed Sunday that Brito had tested positive for COVID-19, but he's apparently produced two negative tests, allowing him to rejoin the team under MLB protocol. The 27-year-old should serve as outfield depth for the Pirates as part of the team's 60-man roster this season.

Pirates' Socrates Brito: Tests positive for coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Derek Shelton announced Sunday that Brito tested positive for COVID-19, Adam Berry of reports.

Brito provided consent for the announcement of his positive test result, though Shelton was unable to say whether or not he's experiencing symptoms. The 27-year-old is in Pittsburgh's 60-player roster pool as outfield depth, but he'll need to produce two negative tests before being cleared to participate in workouts.

Pirates' Socrates Brito: Added to player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates included Brito on their 60-man player pool.

Brito's status will likely depend upon how many infielders the organization utilizes. His best chance of making the team is as a bench player. Brito collected only four hits in 25 spring at-bats, striking out 13 times. The 27-year-old holds a career .179 batting average in parts of four seasons.

Pirates' Socrates Brito: Inks minor-league deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito signed a minor-league contract with the Pirates on Tuesday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training.

Brito was acquired by the Blue Jays in early April, but he struggled in the majors with a .291 OPS and 17 strikeouts over 17 appearances. He was more effective at the Triple-A level, hitting .282/.328/.510 with 16 home runs and 67 RBI over 97 games. He could see some time in the majors in 2020, but he has been unproductive in his limited big-league experience in the past.

Blue Jays' Socrates Brito: DFA'd by Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Friday.

Brito was acquired by the Blue Jays from the Padres at the start of April but struggled massively with three hits and 17 strikeouts in 43 plate appearances. The 26-year-old could be headed to Triple-A Buffalo if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

Blue Jays' Socrates Brito: Collects first hit as Jay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's win over the A's.

His second-inning single brought home the first of four Jays runs in the inning and also marked Brito's first base knock in nine games with the team. His athleticism keeps getting him big-league opportunities, but the 26-year-old's .530 career OPS in 202 plate appearances puts him far off the fantasy radar.

Blue Jays' Socrates Brito: Checks out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.

Following his acquisition last week, Brito entered the starting nine for three of the Blue Jays' four games in Cleveland over the weekend. The outfielder failed to impress in his initial action with Toronto, finishing the series 0-for-10 with five strikeouts. Brito should still be in the mix for semi-regular playing time with the Blue Jays, but the trio of Teoscar Hernandez, Billy McKinney and Randal Grichuk looks like manager Charlie Montoyo's preferred outfield arrangement at the moment.

Blue Jays' Socrates Brito: Leading off Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito is leading off and starting in right field Friday against Cleveland.

This is the second straight game Brito has gotten the start in right field, but it's his first game at the top of the order. The 26-year-old had an uninspiring .175/.227/.250 slash line through 24 games last year, but it looks like Toronto is just trying to see what they have with Brito with fellow right fielder Billy McKinney starting the year off 2-for-20. It will probably be a few more games before the Blue Jays figure out their regular outfield rotation after sending veteran Kevin Pillar to the Giants on Wednesday.

Blue Jays' Socrates Brito: Joins lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito is starting in right field and hitting ninth Thursday against the Indians.

Brito, who was acquired from the Padres earlier in the week, is set to make his Blue Jays debut. The 26-year-old owns a career .202/.229/.351 line across parts of three major-league seasons (82 games) and figures to fill a reserve outfield role during his time with Toronto.

Blue Jays' Socrates Brito: Traded to Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito was sent from San Diego to Toronto on Tuesday in exchange for Rodrigo Orozco.

The Blue Jays had an outfield spot open after traded Kevin Pillar to the Giants earlier in the day. With a career .202/.229/.351 line in 82 career games, Brito is likely to be confined to a bench role.

Padres' Socrates Brito: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito was designated for assignment by the Padres on Saturday.

Brito was claimed off waivers from Arizona on Wednesday, making the Padres' Opening Day roster despite what was already a glut of outfielders. With Nick Margevicius needing to be added to the 40-man roster Saturday ahead of his debut start, Brito was cast off the roster before receiving a single at-bat.

Padres' Socrates Brito: Claimed by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito was claimed off waivers by the Padres on Wednesday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

It's a somewhat odd move, as the Padres' outfield seems to be quite full already with Wil Myers, Manuel Margot, Franmil Reyes, Hunter Renfroe and Franchy Cordero. It's possible Brito will win a bench role, possibly over Cordero, but the Padres could also be attempting to send Brito back through waivers again and have him serve a depth role at the Triple-A level.

Diamondbacks' Socrates Brito: Placed on outright waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks placed Brito on outright waivers Monday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

The timing of the transaction was less than ideal for Arizona, which saw outfielder Steven Souza suffer a left knee injury in Monday's exhibition against the White Sox. With Souza likely headed for IL to open the season, Brito is no longer a candidate to provide extra insurance in the outfield now that he's without a spot on the 40-man roster. The Diamondbacks are hopeful to keep Brito in the organization at Triple-A Reno, but he'll have to go unclaimed off waivers before that happens.

Diamondbacks' Socrates Brito: Odd man out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito is not expected to make the Opening Day roster, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Brito was on the roster bubble all spring until it burst Sunday when the Diamonbacks made a flurry of decisions. One of those decisions was to keep a third catcher, costing Brito a spot. He didn't have a good spring (9-for-54, .167) and with five other outfielders on board, Brito would have a hard time getting at-bats.

Diamondbacks' Socrates Brito: Roster spot in jeopardy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The signing of Adam Jones may cost Brito a spot on the Opening Day roster, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. Brito entered Sunday hitting .167 (5-for-30).

If the Diamondbacks remain committed to carrying three catchers and want to keep slugger Christian Walker, that leaves little wiggle room for Brito, who is out of minor-league options. Jones will be a spare outfielder, capable of playing all three spots, joining Steven Souza, David Peralta, Ketel Marte and Jarrod Dyson.

Diamondbacks' Socrates Brito: Launches first MLB homer since 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' 7-2 win over the Dodgers.

Making his second start of the series, Brito shaved the Diamondbacks' deficit to one run after taking Ross Stripling deep in the bottom of the second inning. It was Brito's first home run in the big leagues since 2016, as the outfielder failed to earn a promotion to the majors last season after injuries hindered his effectiveness at Triple-A Reno. Brito performed well enough in the Pacific Coast League in 2018 to earn a callup this September, and now could be in store for another start or two during the Diamondbacks' season-ending series with the Padres with Steven Souza (back) banged up.

Diamondbacks' Socrates Brito: Set to serve as big-league depth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brito was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Saturday.

The outfielder is just 2-for-17 in eight games for the big-league club this season. Despite his .318/.383/.540 slash line, 17 homers, 15 stolen bases and 85 runs for the Aces, Brito won't garner much playing time for the contending Diamondbacks, instead serving as mere depth.
