Pirates' JT Riddle: Activated ahead of Wednesday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle (abdomen) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's game against the Twins, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Riddle has been sidelined since just before the regular season as a result of a right abdominal strain, but he'll join the Pirates' active roster Wednesday. The 28-year-old should take on a utility depth role with Pittsburgh. He isn't starting Wednesday's contest but should be available going forward.

Pirates' JT Riddle: IL bound with abdominal injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates placed Riddle on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a right abdominal strain.

The injury will prevent Riddle from earning a spot on the Opening Day roster, clearing the way for Erik Gonzalez, Cole Tucker and Phillip Evans to make the roster as backup infielders. Riddle joined the Pirates in January after wrapping up his third big-league season with Miami in 2019, during which he hit .189 with six home runs over 139 plate appearances.

Pirates' JT Riddle: Looking at utility role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle put together a strong spring and is likely to make the team as a utility player.

He hit .304 with three triples in 23 at-bats, bouncing back and forth between the infield and outfield. Noted for his defense, the 29-year-old is already a part of the team's 40-man roster. His best chance for playing time might be in center field, where Jarrod Dyson and backup Guillermo Heredia stand in his way. Riddle has compiled a career line of .229/.269/.368 with the Marlins. Given that he's not expected to play much, he may have a difficult time helping fantasy owners.

Pirates' JT Riddle: Signs with Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle signed with the Pirates on Friday.

Riddle will get a big-league deal, though the financial terms have not yet been disclosed. Riddle's ability to play center field and shortstop may earn him a bench role, but his weak bat (a .229/.269/.368 slash line in 223 career games) should limit his playing time and make him an unappealing fantasy option.

JT Riddle: In search of new club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle (forearm) was non-tendered by the Marlins on Monday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Riddle spent the last few weeks of the season on the injured list due to a forearm strain, and after Miami failed to offer him a contract prior to the deadline Monday, he'll search for a new home. He hit .189 with six homers and 12 RBI over 51 contests with the Marlins in 2019.

Marlins' JT Riddle: Back on 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle (forearm) was activated from the 60-day injured list Friday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

The transaction indicates nothing about Riddle's health, as players aren't allowed to remain on the injured list over the offseason. Riddle had been out of action since mid-July due to a forearm strain. It's unclear if he'll carry the injury into spring training.

Marlins' JT Riddle: Moved to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

This frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for Josh Smith, whom the Marlins claimed off waivers. He has not played in a rehab game since Aug. 21 due to renewed soreness in his right forearm, and at this point it seems unlikely that he will return this season.

Marlins' JT Riddle: Status uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle (forearm) remains without a firm timetable to return from the injured list.

Riddle began a rehab assignment with High-A Jupiter on Aug. 17, almost one month to the day after he landed on the IL with a right forearm strain. He played in two games with Jupiter and then two games with Triple-A New Orleans before -- as David Wilson of the Miami Herald reports -- Riddle began experiencing renewed soreness in the forearm. The 27-year-old was pulled from his rehab assignment, and it's uncertain if or when he may return to the Marlins' active roster.

Marlins' JT Riddle: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Jupiter on Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Riddle has been on the 10-day injured list since July 18 with a forearm strain, but he appears ready to resume live game action.

Marlins' JT Riddle: Lands on IL with forearm strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Marlins placed Riddle on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a right forearm strain, Craig Mish of FNTSY Sports Radio reports.

Riddle's playing time has been trending down lately, and the forearm strain makes it increasingly unlikely that he'll reclaim a starting job in center field once he's healthy again. The Marlins activated Martin Prado (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move, but Cesar Puello should benefit the most from Riddle's absence.

Marlins' JT Riddle: Losing playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle sits for the third straight game Wednesday against the Padres, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Riddle has slashed .150/.190/.250 over his last 15 games, so the loss of playing time certainly seems to be deserved. Cesar Puello starts for the third game in a row in center field.

July 16, 2019 02:12 PM
Marlins' JT Riddle: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle is not starting Tuesday against the Padres.

Riddle owns a .154/.195/.256 slash line over his last 14 games. Cesar Puello will handle center field in his absence.

July 14, 2019 11:16 AM
Marlins' JT Riddle: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus the Mets, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Riddle started the first two games of the second half and went 1-for-6 with a pair of strikeouts. Cesar Puello enters the lineup in center field for the series finale.

Marlins' JT Riddle: Sits against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle will hit the bench against lefty Max Fried and the Braves on Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

With another lefty (Dallas Keuchel) starting Sunday, Riddle may not start again until after the All-Star break. Cesar Puello starts in center field Saturday.

July 2, 2019 02:24 PM
Marlins' JT Riddle: Out vs. lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nationals.

Riddle will take a seat with Patrick Corbin slated to toe the rubber for the opposition. Cesar Puello draws the start in center field and is set to bat eighth in Riddle's absence.

Marlins' JT Riddle: Pops sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-2 win over the Phillies.

The seventh-inning shot was Riddle's sixth homer of the year -- four of which have come in the last eight games. He only has six hits in total over that stretch though, hitting .214 with a 1:12 BB:K, and while the Marlins continue to give him a long look as the starting center fielder, the 27-year-old's .194/.231/.417 slash line on the season suggests his future lies on the bench.

Marlins' JT Riddle: Hits another homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and walk during a 6-4 victory against the Phillies on Sunday.

That's his third home run in the last four games. The 27-year-old is only batting .207 this season, but in addition to the recent power surge, he has a hit in seven of his last 10 games. During that stretch, Riddle is batting .235 with five RBI. However, Riddle is hitting .207 with five home runs, nine RBI and 12 runs in 92 at-bats this season.

Marlins' JT Riddle: Clubs third homer of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over St. Louis.

Riddle played the role of hero on the night, delivering a two-run blast over the fence in right field to give the Marlins the lead in the top of the 11th inning. He's hitting just .200 through 32 games this season, but he did flash some power in Thursday's victory.

June 15, 2019 01:52 PM
Marlins' JT Riddle: Losing playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle is on the bench for the third straight game Friday against the Pirates, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.

Riddle had started six of the last seven games in center field but evidently hadn't done enough to keep the job, hardly a surprise given his .182/.237/.345 seasonal slash line. Harold Ramirez will get a turn at the starting center field job.

June 12, 2019 03:20 PM
Marlins' JT Riddle: Out again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Riddle is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Cardinals, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Riddle will head to the bench for a second straight day and the third time in four games as Harold Ramirez picks up a start in center field Wednesday. The 27-year-old is slashing just .182/.308/.273 in nine games since returning to the big club at the end of May, so Riddle could continue to see his playing time dwindle as the Marlins look elsewhere for outfield production.
