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.

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.

Rays' Andrew Velazquez: Contract selected by Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez had his contract purchased by the Rays on Sunday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Velazquez has a .258/.317/.409 slash line with 124 strikeouts in 117 games with Triple-A Durham this season. The 24-year-old should fulfill a utility role while with the Rays, who have yet to announce a corresponding move.

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

Velazquez is in the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Velazquez has been out since Tuesday after getting hit in the head by a pitch. The 23-year-old has yet to reach Triple-A and hit .235/.297/.374 in 414 plate appearances for Double-A Montgomery last year.

Rays' Andrew Velazquez: Removed following hit to head
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Velazquez exited Tuesday's Grapefruit League game early after being hit in the head by a pitch, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Velazquez seemed to be fine while speaking with manager Kevin Cash after the incident, so it seems like the removal was simply precautionary. Look for a better grasp of the severity of the issue once the team medical staff has a chance to examine him.
