Orioles' Andrew Velazquez: Mixed results in spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez has hit .200/.273/.200 with three stolen bases and one RBI over 23 plate appearances this spring.

Velazquez had a limited sample size during spring training, but he struggled to generate consistency in getting on base while demonstrating his speed when he did manage to appear on the base paths. The 25-year-old is in consideration for a utility role once the season gets underway as a result of his defensive versatility, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see him work in the minors to begin the 2020 campaign so he can develop more consistent production.

Orioles' Andrew Velazquez: Claimed by Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Wednesday.

In Baltimore, Velazquez seems to find himself in a situation where at-bats will be easier to come by than they were in Cleveland. That's not to say Velazquez is a favorite to play a significant role for his new club, or even to make the roster, as he's slashed .152/.222/.242 across just 36 big-league plate appearances to date. Richard Urena was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Indians' Andrew Velazquez: Dropped from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez was designated for assignment Friday.

The transaction clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the newly signed Domingo Santana. Velazquez is just 25 years old and can play both infield and outfield, which could entice a team to claim him off waivers, though he hasn't done much in the big leagues yet, hitting .152/.222/.242 in a small sample of 36 plate appearances.

Indians' Andrew Velazquez: Agrees to one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez signed a one-year contract with the Indians on Monday, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Velazquez saw limited chances during the 2019 season, going 2-for-23 with two doubles and a stolen base in 15 games. He figures to slot into a utility role with Cleveland in 2020.

Indians' Andrew Velazquez: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez was recalled from Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

Velazquez will take the place of Jason Kipnis, who will miss the remainder of the season due to a fractured hand. Velazquez is set to start at second base and hit ninth Tuesday against Detroit.

Indians' Andrew Velazquez: Back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez (hamstring) was activated from the minor-league injured list Saturday.

Velazquez will finish out the minor-league season with Triple-A Columbus after missing a couple of weeks with a hamstring injury. Across 53 games at Triple-A this season, the 25-year-old is slashing .304/.357/.510 with six home runs and three stolen bases.

Indians' Andrew Velazquez: Out again with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez was placed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Columbus with a hamstring injury.

He returned from a hamstring injury a couple weeks ago, so it seems like he aggravated it. Velazquez, who was traded from Tampa Bay in early July, is versatile defensively but probably won't ever hit enough to be a big-league regular.

Indians' Andrew Velazquez: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez (thumb/hamstring) was activated off the 7-day injured list by Triple-A Columbus on Friday.

Velazquez was acquired by the Indians in early July and spent the last couple weeks playing in rehab games in the Arizona League. The 25-year-old had a .271/.329/.450 slash line with four home runs in 34 games prior to landing on the shelf, and figures to return to the majors for September's roster expansion.

Indians' Andrew Velazquez: Running hot in AZL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez (thumb/hamstring) has gone 7-for-14 with a home run and four doubles in five rehab games in the Arizona League.

Dealt from Tampa Bay to Cleveland earlier this month in exchange for international bonus pool money, Velazquez was immediately placed on the minor-league injured list upon joining the Indians organization due to lingering thumb and hamstring injuries. He seems to be feeling good now, and a move up to Triple-A Columbus likely isn't far off. If he manages to avoid another injury, Velazquez should get another look in the majors when rosters expand in September.

Indians' Andrew Velazquez: Sent to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez (undisclosed) was traded from Tampa Bay to Cleveland on Wednesday in exchange for international bonus pool money.

The 24-year-old utility man has just 24 big-league plate appearances to his name and hasn't done much with them, slashing .182/.250/.273. He owns a respectable .271/.329/.450 slash line for Triple-A Durham this season. He'll be assigned to the minor-league injured list with Triple-A Columbus due to an undisclosed injury.

Rays' Andrew Velazquez: Back in action with Durham
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez (thumb) went 1-for-3 in Tuesday's win over Charlotte and is now 3-for-9 with three strikeouts since his return from the injured list.

A thumb sprain put Velazquez on the IL in early June and cost him a little more than two weeks. Velazquez is batting .273/.326/.453 with four homers and two steals (five attempts) through 33 games with Durham this season; those numbers are underwhelming in a vacuum and particularly lackluster when considering Velazquez is about to turn 25. He remains on Tampa Bay's 40-man roster, for now.

Rays' Andrew Velazquez: Goes on minor-league IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez has been placed on the minor-league injured list at Triple-A Durham with a thumb sprain and is expected to be sidelined for approximately two weeks, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The infielder has logged a couple of major-league stints already this season, hitting just .083 over 12 plate appearances. However, he's enjoyed much more success with the Bulls, slashing a solid .269/.320/.462 over 30 games (128 plate appearances). If Velazquez doesn't suffer any setbacks during his recovery, a late-June return appears to be in the cards.

Rays' Andrew Velazquez: Demoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez was sent to Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Velazquez appeared in just eight games during his most recent stint with the Rays, going 1-for-11 with a double and six strikeouts during those appearances. Christian Arroyo was recalled from Durham to take his place on the roster.

Rays' Andrew Velazquez: Brought right back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Saturday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

The Rays optioned Velazquez just one day earlier but were able to bring him back immediately to replace the injured Tyler Glasnow (forearm). Velazquez has shuffled back and forth between Tampa and Durham all season and could be optioned again if the Rays eventually decide to bring up another pitcher to take Glasnow's place on the staff.

Rays' Andrew Velazquez: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Friday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Velazquez joined the Rays at the start of the week and went 0-for-1 while playing in two games. The 24-year-old is a good candidate to return to the majors at some point this season given his defensive versatility and .290/.347/.495 slash line at Durham.

May 6, 2019 09:48 AM
Rays' Andrew Velazquez: Called up from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays recalled Velazquez from Triple-A Durham on Monday.

Velazquez has seen action at all three outfield spots and three infield positions at Durham this season, so he'll offer some defensive versatility off the bench while he's up with the big club. The 24-year-old was previously up with the Rays for a brief time in April but didn't see any game action.

Rays' Andrew Velazquez: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Wednesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

This frees up a spot on the roster for Ji-Man Choi, who was activated from the restricted list Wednesday. Velazquez didn't appear in a game during his time with the big club. The 24-year-old will look to pick up where he left off with Durham, as he was hitting .311/.354/.541 with two homers and a steal through 14 games with the Bulls prior to his promotion.

Rays' Andrew Velazquez: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez was recalled from Triple-A Durham, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Austin Meadows (thumb sprain) landed on the injured list, so Velazquez was summoned to provide some depth and versatility. He is capable of playing shortstop, but he really shines in the outfield, thanks to his plus speed. Velazquez could be of use in AL-only leagues for those looking for speed in the short term.

Rays' Andrew Velazquez: Beginning season in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Sunday, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

Velazquez had a strong start to spring training but ended up 4-for-21 with one double and four RBI in 11 games. The 24-year-old could make his way to the majors at some point this season and would likely serve in a utility role.

Rays' Andrew Velazquez: Collects two RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez was 2-for-2 with a run and two RBI during Tuesday's spring training win over the Orioles.

Velazquez pinch ran for Kevin Kiermaier in the sixth inning and subsequently took over in center field. The 24-year-old went 3-for-10 with a double and a stolen base in 13 games with the Rays last September, and faces a difficult path to an Opening Day roster spot in his utility role.
