Yankees' Breyvic Valera: Returned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was sent back to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after serving as the 26th man for Monday's doubleheader. He went 2-for-6 with a walk and a run scored in two starts at second base.

Valera collected a pair of base knocks in Monday's twin bill, but he'll head right back down to the minors following an 11-8 victory. Joe Mantiply and Brady Lail were also optioned to Triple-A after the game.

Yankees' Breyvic Valera: Up, hitting ninth in day game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to serve as the 26th man for Monday's doubleheader against the Orioles. He is starting at second base and hitting ninth in the day game, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

He was optioned down to Triple-A on Sunday, but can be summoned back as the 26th man. Valera went 4-for-23 (.174) with zero home runs and zero steals in eight games during his latest stint in the majors.

Yankees' Breyvic Valera: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.

He went 4-for-23 (.174) with zero home runs and zero steals in eight games during his latest stint in the majors. Perhaps this means Gleyber Torres (core pain) is ready to return to action in the final game of this weekend's series in Toronto.

Yankees' Breyvic Valera: Knocks in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera went 1-for-4 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored Monday against the Orioles.

Valera tripled home a pair of runs in the fifth inning, giving the Yankees a 3-1 lead. The bottom of the order got the job done Monday night for New York, as Valera and Mark Tauchman combined for four hits and five RBI. Valera is 4-for-14 with three RBI and a walk in five games since being promoted to the big leagues Wednesday.

Yankees' Breyvic Valera: Called up to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Yankees recalled Valera from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Wednesday, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.

Valera will assume the active roster spot of first baseman Luke Voit (sports hernia), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. With Voit now on the shelf and DJ LeMahieu (groin) banged up, Valera will provide the Yankees with some healthy position-player depth in Wednesday's series finale in Arizona, but his stay with the big club could be brief. The Yankees are optimistic that LeMahieu will be ready to return to action for this weekend's series with Boston, which would lessen the club's need to keep Valera around as an insurance option in the infield.

Yankees' Breyvic Valera: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after Friday's game against the Blue Jays.

He provided some short-term infield depth, but was sent back down as a corresponding move to the impending activation of Luke Voit (abdomen) on Saturday. Valera will provide organizational depth going forward.

Yankees' Breyvic Valera: Called up Sunday, in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Yankees recalled Valera from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports. Valera will start at second base and bat eighth in the Yankees' game against the Rays.

With everyday second baseman DJ LeMahieu picking up some rest in the Yankees' final game before the All-Star break, Valera will crack the starting nine immediately as he moves up to the big leagues for the first time in 2019. A mid-May waiver pickup from the Giants, Valera supplied a .322/.412/.498 slash line to go with 10 home runs and five steals between two Triple-A affiliates this season. The 27-year-old switch hitter will likely see limited action in a utility role while he's up with the Yankees.

Yankees' Breyvic Valera: Claimed by Yanks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was claimed off waivers by the Yankees on Sunday, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.

Valera was designated for assignment last weekend by the Giants but will now make his way to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for the Yankees. The 27-year-old has a .257/.396/.338 slash line at Triple-A but has yet to see the majors this season.

Giants' Breyvic Valera: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was designated for assignment by the Giants on Sunday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

Valera is hitting an uninspiring .257/.396/.338 in 24 games for Triple-A Sacramento this season. He'll make way on the 40-man roster for Andrew Moore, who was claimed off waivers in a corresponding move.

March 11, 2019 01:00 PM
Giants' Breyvic Valera: Heads to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.

Valera's defensive versatility gave him a shot at a spot on the end of the Giants' bench, but he won't end up getting the chance to fill that role right away. The 27-year-old has played in 37 career major-league games, hitting .216/.286/.243.

Giants' Breyvic Valera: Sent to San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was traded from the Orioles to the Giants in exchange for cash considerations Saturday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

Valera came over as part of the Manny Machado trade but never projected as anything more than a utility player. He owns a .216/.286/.243 line in 86 big-league plate appearances. He'll fight for a bench spot in San Francisco.

January 5, 2019 10:20 PM
Orioles' Breyvic Valera: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Friday.

Valera's ability to cover a wide variety of positions gives him a potential future as a utility man, but he hasn't done enough with the bat thus far in his career to deserve a roster spot. In 86 career plate appearances, he's hit just .216/.286/.243. His spot on the 40-man roster will be taken by reliever Austin Brice.

Orioles' Breyvic Valera: Season over after fracturing finger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles announced Sunday that Valera (finger) would be sidelined for the remainder of the season, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

It was widely anticipated that Valera would be shuttered for the season after fracturing his left middle finger during Sunday's 6-3 win over the Yankees, but Bell's report officially confirms as much. One of the pieces acquired from the Dodgers in the July trade that sent Manny Machado to Los Angeles, Valera appeared in 11 games for the big club as a September callup, slashing .290/.333/.355 across 31 at-bats. Even if he requires surgery to address the injury, Valera should be back to full health for the start of spring training and will be looking to secure an Opening Day roster spot as a utility man.

Orioles' Breyvic Valera: Dealing with fractured finger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a previous report, Valera was diagnosed with a fractured left middle finger Sunday after undergoing followup X-rays, according to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports.

When Valera departed in the top of the fifth inning of Sunday's game against the Yankees with the injury, the Orioles quickly announced he was only dealing with a bruised finger. The issue proved to be more significant once the Orioles sent him in for scans, however, with the injury likely spelling an end to Valera's season. If that's the case, the 26-year-old will wrap up the 2018 campaign with a .286/.325/.343 slash line across 75 plate appearances, which included no home runs and only one stolen base.

Orioles' Breyvic Valera: Diagnosed with bruised finger
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera departed Sunday's game against the Yankees with a bruised left index finger, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

Valera sustained the injury in the top of the fifth inning, when he was tagged out at home plate on a headfirst slide. The 26-year-old delivered his first extra-base hit of the season before departing with the injury, which doesn't sound like anything too significant. Steve Wilkerson replaced Valera at second base.

Orioles' Breyvic Valera: Leaves Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera exited Sunday's game against the Yankees with an apparent left wrist or hand injury, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

Valera attempted to score from third base on a fielder's choice but was thrown out at home on a headfirst slide, appearing to injure his left wrist/hand in the process. The severity of the injury is unclear.

Orioles' Breyvic Valera: Back in lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera is back in the Orioles' lineup Tuesday against Toronto after being scratched Monday for undisclosed reasons, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Whatever the issue was, it didn't keep Valera out long. He'll bat sixth and play second base.

September 17, 2018 05:12 PM
Orioles' Breyvic Valera: Scratched from lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Blue Jays, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.

It's unclear what forced Valera from the starting lineup at this point. Jonathan Villar is covering second base while Chris Davis was added to the lineup in place of Valera.

Orioles' Breyvic Valera: Called back up Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday.

Valera appeared in one game with Baltimore about a month ago and had a .172/.273/.172 slash line with the Dodgers before he was traded. The 26-year-old posted a .261/.333/.405 slash line at the Triple-A level this season.

August 2, 2018 05:12 PM
Orioles' Breyvic Valera: Shipped back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Valera appeared in just one game since being called up from Triple-A on Tuesday. He went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a strikeout. Jonathan Villar (thumb) was activated from the 10-day disabled list in a corresponding move.
