Wisdom cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.
Wisdom was designated for assignment by the Rangers over the weekend but will remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. The 27-year-old has struggled in 61 games at Nashville this season with a .199/.310/.389 slash line and 32 percent strikeout rate.
Wisdom was designated for assignment Saturday.
The move was made to create a spot on the 40-man roster for Pedro Payano. Wisdom is hitting just .199/.310/.389 across 259 plate appearances with Triple-A Nashville this season.
Wisdom was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Friday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.
Wisdom collected to base hits over four games during his latest big-league stint. In a corresponding move, Wei-Chieh Huang was recalled from Triple-A.
Wisdom entered Wednesday's game after Asdrubal Cabrera was removed due to a hand injury. Wisdom struck out in his only at-bat.
The Rangers are downplaying Cabrera's injury, referring to his removal from the game as precautionary. Texas next plays Friday, so the team has time to monitor how the hand responds before making a decision about Cabrera's availability. If Cabrera can't go, expect Wisdom to fill in at third base.
Wisdom will start at first base and bat eighth Sunday against the Athletics.
With Rougned Odor (knee) recently joining Ronald Guzman (hamstring) on the shelf, the Rangers have sported a new-look left side of the infield. Wisdom will draw in for Guzman at first base in what marks his fourth consecutive start. The 27-year-old should have a fairly clear path to at-bats until at least one of the two injured players is activated.
Wisdom started at third base and went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to Arizona.
Wisdom got the start as Asdrubel Cabrera was given the day off after criss-crossing the country to be sworn in as an American citizen in Miami. Cabrera is expected to play Wednesday while Wisdom retreats to the bench. In addition to backup duty at third base, Wisdom will share first base with Logan Forsythe while Ronald Guzman (hamstring) is sidelined on the 10-day injured list.
The Rangers recalled Wisdom from Triple-A Nashville on Sunday.
He'll be available off the bench in the Rangers' series finale against the Angels after assuming the active roster spot of Ronald Guzman (hamstring), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Guzman's absence for at least the next week and a half creates an opening at first base, but it's unclear if Wisdom will get a legitimate look in a starting role or if he'll merely function as corner-infield depth during his time with the big club. Logan Forsythe will get the first crack at replacing Guzman in Sunday's contest, and outfielder Joey Gallo could be a solution at the position, too.
Wisdom was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Friday.
Wisdom had at least an outside shot of breaking camp with the team but won't get a chance to make an impact right away. The 27-year-old has spent the bulk of the last three season at Triple-A Memphis in the Cardinals' system, hitting .256/.327/.466.
Wisdom entered Wednesday's game against the Giants as a replacement at first base. He went 0-for-2, and is hitting .136 (3-for-22) over 10 spring games.
For a while during the offseason, Wisdom looked like he was going to be the Rangers' starting third baseman. That was before the organization signed Asdrubal Cabrera, who is the favorite to start at the hot corner. As such, the Rangers are exposing Wisdom to first base -- he played three games there last season with the Cardinals -- to provide depth at both corner-infield positions.
Wisdom was traded from the Cardinals to the Rangers on Tuesday in exchange for Drew Robinson.
Wisdom was no longer needed as corner infield depth in St. Louis following the acquisition of Paul Goldschmidt. The 27-year-old spent the majority of the 2018 season with Triple-A Memphis, hitting .288/.363/.480 with 15 homers and 11 stolen bases across 107 games. He also made his major-league debut, slashing .260/.362/.520 with four homers and a pair of steals across 32 games for the big club. Wisdom currently projects as infield depth for Texas, though he could also compete for a starting job if Jurickson Profar is traded before Opening Day.
Wisdom went 2-for-4 with a double and a run in a loss to the Cubs on Sunday.
The rookie logged his first start since Sept. 15 in the finale and made good use of the opportunity. Wisdom was solid in his first taste of major-league action in 2018, but his path to the big leagues with the Cardinals organization remains murky due to the team seemingly set at both corner infield spots with Matt Carpenter and Jedd Gyorko.
Wisdom went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.
The grand slam provided all of the Cardinals' runs in their 17-4 loss. The 27-year-old now has four homers in 45 plate appearances in his debut season, hitting .231/.333/.538 overall.
Wisdom was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.
Wisdom is up to replace the injured Kolten Wong (hamstring), though he's exclusively a corner infielder, so Wisdom isn't a direct replacement for Wong at second base. The 27-year-old went 4-for-12 in his first taste of big-league action earlier in the month and has hit a solid .288/.363/.480 with 15 homers and 11 steals for Memphis this season.
Wisdom was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.
Wisdom went 4-for-12 in nine games with the Cardinals. He'll make way for new acquisition Matt Adams but could be back up in the big leagues when rosters expand in September.
Wisdom launched a pinch-hit solo home run Sunday against the Brewers.
Wisdom took Jeremy Jeffress deep in the eighth inning to record his first career home run. The 26-year-old made his major-league debut on Aug. 12 and has appeared nearly exclusively as a pinch hitter or defensive replacement, earning only nine at-bats in eight appearances. He has racked up four hits in that limited sample but has minimal value due to lack of playing time.
Wisdom went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and one RBI in Sunday's 8-2 win over the Royals.
Not a bad MLB debut for the 26-year-old, scoring a pair of runs and earning his first two big-league hits. It remains to be seen exactly what role Wisdom will be playing during his first MLB stint, but there's no guarantee he'll have an everyday spot just yet.
Wisdom had his contract selected from Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.
Wisdom has a .289/.363/.479 slash line with 14 home runs in 103 games for the Redbirds this season after hitting 31 homers in 2017. The 26-year-old provides infield depth for the Cardinals with Yairo Munoz (wrist) on the disabled list, though he also has a worrying 110 strikeouts in 405 plate appearances at Triple-A.
Wisdom went 0-for-3 with a walk in Sunday's Grapefruit League loss to Houston.
Wisdom has spent the last two seasons at Triple-A Memphis, and he had a particularly good campaign last year when he slashed .243/.310/.507 and hit 31 home runs in 456 at-bats. Wisdom is off to a rough start so far, as he's just 3-for-17 with three strikeouts. If he gets a look with the Cardinals this season, it will likely be a temporary assignment that occurs when injuries deplete the team's depth in front of him.
Wisdom, who hit a career-high 31 home runs for Triple-A Memphis this season, smacked a go-ahead two-run home run in Sunday's Pacific Coast League championship-clinching 3-1 victory over El Paso, William Boor of MLB.com reports.
The slugging infielder launched a two-run blast off Padres prospect Kyle Lloyd in the fifth, snapping a scoreless tie. Wisdom finished the regular season with a .243/.310/.507 line that included 57 extra-base hits (25 doubles, one triple and 31 homers) and 89 RBI, but he also posted a 29.4 percent strikeout rate that was the second highest of his pro career. The 26-year-old also saw his walk rate drop to a career-low 7.5 percent, so his plate discipline remains a work in progress. Wisdom figures to have ample opportunity to show what he can do in spring training next March.
Wisdom is slashing .257/.316/.493 with 16 home runs and 51 RBI across 301 plate appearances in 75 games for Triple-A Memphis.
The 25-year-old third baseman has an additional 16 extra-base hits in the form of 15 doubles and a triple, and he's seen a sizable boost in overall hard contact this season. Wisdom logged 78 games at the Triple-A level in 2016 as well, but managed only five homers, a .233 average and .141 ISO. The latter figure has jumped up nearly 100 points to .237 in 2017, which helps offset an increase in strikeout rate from 24.7 percent to 28.9 percent. Wisdom's .493 slugging percentage is also his best in any minor-league stop in which he's played at least 25 games, as are his 16 round trippers. The one conundrum with respect to a potential ascension for Wisdom is that the corner infield spots at the major-league level are currently in the capable hands of Jedd Gyorko and Matt Carpenter.
