Schebler cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday.
The 30-year-old was designated for assignment by the Halos earlier in the week, but he'll remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. Schebler appeared in 11 games for the Angles and went 4-for-27 with three doubles, two runs and 11 strikeouts.
Schebler was designated for assignment by the Angels on Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Schebler had his contract selected by the Angels in mid-April and went 4-for-27 with 11 strikeouts in 11 appearances. Phil Gosselin had his contract selected in a corresponding move and is starting at third base Tuesday.
Schebler's contract was selected by the Angels on Friday.
Schebler served as a non-roster invitee in spring training and slashed .290/.343/.645 with three home runs and 10 RBI. He'll now join the major-league club as outfield depth going forward after Jon Jay was designated for assignment Friday.
Schebler was reassigned to minor-league camp Friday.
Schebler was in camp as a non-roster invitee and hit well across 29 plate appearances, accruing a .333/.387/.741 line. However, that wasn't enough for him to crack the roster due to the team's other offseason additions, such as Juan Lagares, Jon Jay and Dexter Fowler.
Schebler signed a minor-league contract with the Angels on Saturday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
The deal will pay the outfielder $900,000 if he's able to earn a big-league job. Things haven't gone well for Schebler in recent seasons, as he received just a single plate appearance for the Braves in 2020 after hitting a miserable .123/.253/.222 in 95 trips to the plate for the Reds in 2019. He's still just 30 years old and owns a respectable enough 98 career wRC+ though, so there's at least a chance he turns things around and earns a bench spot.
Schebler was sent outright to Atlanta's alternate camp site Thursday.
Schebler will remain in the Braves organization after being designated for assignment and subsequently going unclaimed on waivers. The outfielder appeared in 30 games for the Reds in 2019 and hit .123/.253/.222 in 95 plate appearances.
The Braves designated Schebler for assignment Thursday.
Schebler was acquired from the Reds shortly before Opening Day to provide the Braves with some extra depth in the outfield, but he didn't see any use off the bench until he appeared as a pinch hitter in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Blue Jays. He'll cede his spot on the 40-man and 28-man roster to reliever Will Smith, who was activated from the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move.
Schebler (undisclosed) was activated off the injured list and will join the Braves' active roster Wednesday.
Schebler was acquired from the Reds in exchange for cash considerations on Opening Day, though he opened the year on the injured list for undisclosed reasons. He's evidently ready to play now, though he'll likely be buried deep on the depth chart, especially after Nick Markakis elected to opt back into playing this season Wednesday.
Schebler was placed on the injured list for undisclosed reasons Tuesday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.
Schebler was acquired from the Reds on Friday but was presumably not expected to fill much more than an organizational depth role. It's now unclear when he'll be able to play in any capacity.
Schebler was traded from Cincinnati to Atlanta in exchange for cash considerations Friday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.
Schebler was a serviceable option for the Reds from 2016 to 2018, posting a wRC+ between 98 and 108 in each season. He hit a miserable .123/.253/.222 in a small sample of just 30 games last season and hit a similarly poor .216/.274/.325 in 53 games for Triple-A Louisville, so he's unlikely to be one of the Braves' top options this season.
Schebler was designated for assignment by the Reds on Sunday.
Schebler was part of the Reds' 60-man roster during camp, but he'll find himself off the 40-man roster to make room for Brooks Raley, whose contract was selected by the team in a corresponding move. The 29-year-old appeared in 30 major-league games last season but didn't fare very well, hitting .123/.253/.222 with two home runs and seven RBI.
Schebler will be a part of the Reds' 60-man player pool this season.
This is not surprising given that Schebler is on the 40-man roster. However, he will not be among the six outfielders training at Great American Ball Park, so Schebler is unlikely to play a major role for the Reds in 2020.
Schebler has fully recovered from the torn labrum in his right shoulder that required surgery in August, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
Schebler is a long shot to make the Reds' Opening Day roster, following their acquisitions of Nick Castellanos and Shogo Akiyama. Barring an IL stint for Nick Senzel and/or Jesse Winker to begin the season, at best he's currently sixth on the outfield depth chart, and he might also be behind Philip Ervin, Travis Jankowski or Josh VanMeter.
Schebler is hitting .215/.311/.241 at Triple-A Louisville and has yet to homer in 90 plate appearances since his demotion.
While Schebler nominally has lowered his strikeout rate, from 28.4% in the majors to 24.4% in the minors, his power has disappeared. His Triple-A ISO is a minuscule .026. If an injury occurs at the big-league level, it's most likely going to be Phillip Ervin getting the call over Schebler, if Ervin's not already up with the big club.
Schebler was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.
With Nick Senzel now up as the everyday center fielder, the Reds opted to give Schebler everyday at-bats in the minors rather than keep him around as a fourth outfielder. He clearly needs to figure something out, as he's hitting .123/.253/.222 through 30 games. Cody Reed was recalled in a corresponding move.
Schebler is out of the lineup for the second straight game Wednesday against the Mets.
Schebler's loss of playing time is hardly a surprise, as he's hitting .135 on the season and has just two hits in his last 14 games. He could be about to lose his starting spot entirely, as Nick Senzel's promotion is reportedly imminent. For Wednesday's game, Jesse Winker slides over to center field, with Derek Dietrich entering the lineup in left.
Schebler is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets.
Manager David Bell will go with an outfield consisting of Jesse Winker, Phillip Ervin and Yasiel Puig from left to right against lefty Jason Vargas. Schebler's days as a regular in this lineup are numbered; he's 2-for-34 over his last 14 games and batting .135/.273/.243 for the season. Jon Heyman of MLB Network suggests the Reds could call up top prospect Nick Senzel to take over in center field as soon as Friday.
Schebler dropped to seventh in the order for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
Schebler has continued to struggle at the plate, hitting just .132/.263/.235 in 80 plate appearances so far. Tucker Barnhart is batting fifth with Schebler moving down.
Schebler is not starting Wednesday against the Braves.
Schebler has just a single hit in his last eight contests. Phillip Ervin starts in center field Wednesday.
Schebler is not in the lineup for Sunday's game in San Diego, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Schebler finds himself on the bench for the fourth time in six games. He's hitting just .170/.267/.302 on the year. Jesse Winker will slide over to center field, with Matt Kemp starting in left.
