Blue Jays' Breyvic Valera: Moves to restricted list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera is unable to report to camp for unspecified reasons and was placed on the restricted list Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The 28-year-old was claimed off waivers from the Padres in early July, but he hasn't appeared in camp with his new team. Valera has now changed organizations seven times -- including a previous stint with the Blue Jays -- and had a .234/.308/.383 slash line in 52 big-league plate appearances in 2019.

Blue Jays' Breyvic Valera: On move to Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays claimed Valera off waivers from the Padres on Thursday.

Though Valera isn't even arbitration-eligible yet, he's now changed organizations seven times since signing with the Cardinals in May 2010 as an amateur free agent out of Venezuela. He'll be joining Toronto for the second time, as he was previously claimed by the Blue Jays last September before being dropped from the 40-man roster in February and scooped up by San Diego. Valera will report to Toronto's summer camp this week and will look to win a job as a utility infielder on the club's 30-man Opening Day roster.

Padres' Breyvic Valera: Doubtful to make big-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera is on the outside looking in for a spot on the Opening Day roster, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The Padres claimed Valera off waivers in mid-February but limited him to 11 Cactus League at-bats. The sparse spring playing time and unimpressive results -- he collected only one hit -- leave Valera with a distant chance of breaking camp with San Diego in spite of his versatility in the field. The 28-year-old is likely destined to open the season with Triple-A El Paso.

Padres' Breyvic Valera: Claimed by Friars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was claimed off waivers by the Padres on Wednesday.

Valera was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays over the weekend, but he'll now receive a fresh start with the Padres. The 28-year-old slashed .234/.308/.383 with one home run in 52 plate appearances between the Blue Jays and Yankees last season, and he should serve as infield depth for San Diego if he secures a roster spot.

Blue Jays' Breyvic Valera: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Valera will cede his roster spot to Rafael Dolis, who was signed in a corresponding move. With a career .223/.294/.298 slash line in 54 big-league games (split between five different teams), Valera is unlikely to be a particularly appealing name on the waiver wire.

Blue Jays' Breyvic Valera: Claimed by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays claimed Valera off waivers from the Yankees on Friday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

Valera seems to be an insurance policy for Bo Bichette, who was removed from Thursday's game for concussion testing. It's not yet clear whether Bichette has been diagnosed with a concussion. Valera hit .219/.324/.313 in 12 games with the Yankees before being designated for assignment.

Yankees' Breyvic Valera: Removed from roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Tuesday.

Valera will make way on the 40-man roster for Luis Severino's return from a lat injury. He didn't do much in 37 plate appearances at the big-league level this season, hitting .219/.324/.313.

Yankees' Breyvic Valera: Joins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valera was recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday.

The 27-year-old will join the Yankees as a September callup a week after rosters expanded since he remained with the RailRiders for their playoff run. Valera had an impressive year at Triple-A with a .315/.388/.515 slash line and 13 home runs in 83 games, and he should work as a utility option off the bench for New York.

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.

August 11, 2019 06:04 PM
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.

July 12, 2019 10:32 PM
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.

May 5, 2019 04:28 PM
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.

January 5, 2019 10:20 PM
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.
