Rays' Brian O'Grady: Dispatched to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays optioned O'Grady to Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

One of seven players cut from major-league camp, O'Grady was long shot to crack the Opening Day roster due to the Rays' logjam in the outfield. O'Grady showcased an intriguing power/speed combination with the Reds' affiliate at Triple-A Louisville last season, but his contract issues (27.9 K%) could prevent him from translating that success to the big-league level.

Rays' Brian O'Grady: Offseason work pays off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Grady credits playing winter ball in the Dominican Republic and his work with Reds strength and conditioning coach Morgan Gregory this offseason for his success during spring training, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports.

O'Grady made a significant impression during Grapefruit League play, hitting .348 (8-for-23) with three doubles, two home runs, five RBI, one walk and four runs across 14 games. The 27-year-old arrived via trade from the Reds in late November, and his success during the exhibition slate had him in contention for one of the Rays' final roster spots when play was suspended. It remains to be seen what type of ramp-up to the regular season there will eventually be and how many opportunities that will afford O'Grady to continue making his case; however, after slugging 28 homers at Triple-A Louisville last season, O'Grady is confident he'll be back up with the big-league club at some point in 2020 if he starts the campaign in the minors. "There are probably only two or three spots and a decent amount of people going for them," he said. "I don't think there's anything else I could have done for deserving to be on that team. I'd be disappointed if I'm not, but at the end of the day, I'm sure my opportunity will come at some point."

Rays' Brian O'Grady: Traded to Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Grady was traded from the Reds to the Rays on Wednesday in exchange for cash and a player to be named later.

O'Grady will remain on a 40-man roster after being designated for assignment by the Reds earlier in the week. The 27-year-old owns a career .286/.360/.553 slash line at the Triple-A level but hit just .190/.292/.429 in his 28-game big-league debut last season.

Reds' Brian O'Grady: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Grady was designated for assignment by the Reds on Monday.

O'Grady reached the big leagues for the first time in his career in his age-27 season. He didn't do much with his 48 plate appearances, hitting .190/.292/.429.

Reds' Brian O'Grady: Pops homer in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Grady went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Pirates.

Despite two outfield regulars (Jesse Winker and Nick Senzel) being shut down for nearly all of September with injuries, O'Grady didn't really benefit from an extended audition. O'Grady's start in the season finale was his first in seven games, seemingly suggesting that his development isn't a major priority for the Reds. If he remains on the 40-man roster heading into spring training, expect O'Grady to begin the 2020 campaign at Triple-A Louisville.

Reds' Brian O'Grady: Sitting out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Grady is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cubs, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

O'Grady has seen increased work in center field of late after Nick Senzel (shoulder) was shut down for the season earlier this month, but the 27-year-old hasn't quite seized hold of a full-time role yet. With the Reds facing southpaws Monday (Cole Hamels) and Wednesday (Jon Lester), the lefty-hitting O'Grady seems likely to sit at least twice during the three-game series in Chicago.

Reds' Brian O'Grady: Belts first major-league homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Grady hit a two-run homer in his only at-bat against the Mariners on Tuesday.

O'Grady came on as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning and launched a 426-foot shot to right field for his first major-league home run. The 27-year-old underwhelmed for years in the minors but blossomed this season to hit .280 with 28 long balls and 77 RBI in 112 games for Triple-A Louisville.

Reds' Brian O'Grady: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Grady was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

O'Grady slashed .280/.359/.550 with 28 homers and 77 RBI over 112 games with the Bats this season, and he'll get another chance in the majors after rosters expanded Sunday.

Reds' Brian O'Grady: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Grady was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.

O'Grady was sent down to make room for Curt Casali, who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list. In his most recent stint with the big-league club -- which began Aug. 18 -- O'Grady went hitless in seven at-bats.

Reds' Brian O'Grady: Summoned to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Grady was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.

He will take the place of Joey Votto (back), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. O'Grady, 27, hit .273/.352/.552 with 27 home runs and 17 steals in 103 games at Triple-A. He will likely work primarily in a bench role.

Reds' Brian O'Grady: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Grady was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old returns to the minors after getting his first taste of major-league action, going 1-for-5 in five pinch-hit appearances. While his production in that small sample of major-league at-bats leaves much to be desired, O'Grady has played well for Louisville this season, amassing a slash line of .277/.351/.562 with 27 home runs and 70 RBI so far. Freddy Galvis was added to the major-league roster in a corresponding move.

Reds' Brian O'Grady: Earns promotion to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Grady had his contract selected from Triple-A Louisville on Monday.

The 27-year-old O'Grady will get his first shot in the majors after slashing .277/.351/.562 with 27 home runs and 16 stolen bases in 100 games for Louisville. The corner outfielder struggled with strikeouts (28.4 percent strikeout rate) during his time with the Bats, particularly when factoring in his age, so there remains some skepticism about his ability to find success against major-league pitching. In order to free up a spot on the roster for O'Grady, Blake Trahan was designated for assignment while Derek Dietrich (shoulder) was placed on the IL.

Reds' Brian O'Grady: Tearing up International League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Grady went 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI for Triple-A Louisville in its 10-6 win over Toledo on Monday.

As a 27-year-old corner bat, O'Grady justifiably remained off the radar in most dynasty leagues entering 2019. That probably still remains the case, but O'Grady may have put himself in consideration for a spot on the Reds' 40-man roster and perhaps a September callup thanks to his hot hitting at Louisville. Through 39 games, O'Grady has already slugged 14 home runs to go with nine steals while slashing .331/.408/.717. The production has come with a 30.2 percent strikeout rate, however, creating a fair amount of skepticism about his ability to find success against big-league pitching.
