Mets' Guillermo Heredia: Staying with Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Mets on Wednesday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

The journeyman outfielder hit .212/.278/.394 with two home runs in 36 plate appearances with the Pirates and Mets last season. He gives New York a right-handed platoon option who can play all three outfield spots.

Mets' Guillermo Heredia: First long ball of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during the Mets' 5-2 win over the Rays on Tuesday.

Heredia left the yard for the first time this season. He is slashing .190/.292/.333 through a mere 22 at-bats with the Pirates and Mets in 2020.

Mets' Guillermo Heredia: Recalled and starting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia was recalled by the Mets and is starting Monday against the Rays, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Heredia was claimed off waivers by the Mets at the end of August and reported to the alternate training site. He'll now make his debut with the major-league club, and he'll be in the lineup right away, starting in center field. Jake Marisnick (hamstring) was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move.

Mets' Guillermo Heredia: Claimed by Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia was claimed off waivers by the Mets on Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The 29-year-old was designated for assignment by Pittsburgh at the start of the week, and he'll now be making his way to New York. Heredia is 3-for-16 in eight games this season and will report to the Mets' alternate training site.

Pirates' Guillermo Heredia: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Monday.

Heredia was optioned to the Pirates' alternate training site in early August, but he'll now be cast off the 40-man roster to make room for Carson Fulmer, who was claimed off waivers from the Tigers in a corresponding move. Heredia has spent the bulk of the past three seasons in the majors, and he hit .239 while recording 20-plus home runs in two of the three seasons.

Pirates' Guillermo Heredia: Sent to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia was optioned to the Pirates' alternate training site after Wednesday's loss to the Twins, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Heredia struggled through the first couple weeks of the season, going 3-for-16 with two runs, two RBI, a stolen base and two walks in 18 plate appearances. The 29-year-old could return to the majors once the Pirates need additional outfield depth.

Pirates' Guillermo Heredia: Heads to bench for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia is not in Sunday's lineup against the Cardinals.

The righty-hitting outfielder started the first two games against right-handed starters but will head to the bench with another righty (Dakota Hudson) on the hill for St. Louis. Heredia is 0-for-7 with three strikeouts. Jose Osuna will start in right field and bat sixth.

Pirates' Guillermo Heredia: Gets exhibition game nod Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia will start in right field and bat ninth Saturday against the Indians.

He's in line for additional playing time while starter Gregory Polanco recovers from the coronavirus. Socrates Brito, Jose Osuna and JT Riddle are also right field options, with Jason Martin currently participating in the alternative camp in Altoona.

Pirates' Guillermo Heredia: Set for backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

There's a good chance that Heredia will make Pittsburgh's Opening Day roster as a fourth outfielder.

Heredia, who can play all three outfield spots, didn't exactly set the world on fire this spring, going 3-for-19 with one extra-base hit (a double). Still, the organization has limited immediate alternatives in the outfield. The 29-year-old fares better against right-handed pitching (.274/.335/.401) than he does against lefties (.212/.303/.293). As a result, he'll most likely serve as an occasional starter against right-handers while serving as a bat off the bench.

Pirates' Guillermo Heredia: Agrees to terms with Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia agreed to a contract with the Pirates on Thursday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

Heredia appeared in 89 games for the Rays in 2019, but he wasn't tendered a contract following the season. The 28-year-old is a strong defender, but his batting average has steadily declined over the past four years, and he hit just .225 in 2019. Heredia will likely serve as major-league depth in the outfield next season.

Guillermo Heredia: Doesn't receive contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia was non-tendered by the Rays on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Heredia will become a free agent after Tampa Bay failed to issue him a contract prior to the deadline. He appeared in 89 games a season ago, hitting .225 with five homers and 20 RBI.

Rays' Guillermo Heredia: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's win at Angel Stadium.

Heredia extended Tampa Bay's lead by launching a 395-foot solo homer in the sixth inning. The 28-year-old outfielder, who was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Sept. 3, now has five long balls while batting .227/.309/.369 across 82 games in the majors.

Rays' Guillermo Heredia: Laces key hit in extras
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and a run in an extra-innings win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

Heredia's 11th-inning two-bagger plated Willy Adames to give the Rays some valuable breathing room by extending their lead to 5-3. The reserve outfielder has been used sparingly since his return to the majors Sept. 1, with Tuesday's game qualifying as only his second start during the month.

Rays' Guillermo Heredia: Returning to majors Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia is slated to be called back up from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Heredia was optioned to the Bulls back on Aug. 24 to accommodate the activation of Avisail Garcia. The outfielder was required to spend a minimum amount of 10 days at the minor-league level, a threshold he'll meet Monday. Heredia's return will coincide with a doubleheader against the Orioles on Tuesday, providing manager Kevin Cash with an extra option for the twin bill.

Rays' Guillermo Heredia: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Heredia was optioned to make room for the activation of Avisail Garcia. He has spent the majority of the season in the majors but is hitting just .225/.311/.352 across 208 plate appearances.

Rays' Guillermo Heredia: Smacks homer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in a win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

Heredia squared up on a third-inning Wade LeBlanc offering for his fourth home run of the season. It was a rare taste of success for the reserve outfielder, who's just 3-for-23 with eight strikeouts since the calendar flipped to August, leading to a 14-point tumble in his batting average to .225.

Rays' Guillermo Heredia: Makes noise of out of leadoff spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia went 0-for-3 with three walks, a stolen base and three runs in a win over the Padres on Monday.

Heredia produced one of the more eventful hitless performances you'll see, as he still managed to set the table effectively courtesy of a keen eye at the plate. The outfielder is still searching for his first hit in August through three starts, but he's been a steady presence on the basepaths with five walks over that stretch.

Rays' Guillermo Heredia: Slugs clutch two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in a win over the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Heredia began a comeback from a 9-6 deficit in the eighth inning via his 394-foot shot with Joey Wendle aboard, only his third homer of the season. The veteran outfielder has produced four RBI over his last three starts, although with another three strikeouts Sunday, he's now whiffing at a career-worst 24.1 percent clip.

Rays' Guillermo Heredia: Producing in recent starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia, who went 2-for-5 with a sacrifice fly and two runs in an extra-innings loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday, is 5-for-14 with a double, two RBI, a walk and three runs overall in his last four starts.

The 28-year-old outfielder has been reasonably productive despite typically hitting out of the bottom of the order, and his solid performances recently have helped cushion the blow of Kevin Kiermaier's absence due to a thumb injury. Heredia doesn't offer much in the way of power, but he's traditionally been a solid contact hitter that can often help set the table for the top of the lineup.

Rays' Guillermo Heredia: Third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heredia will start in center field and bat eighth Wednesday against the Red Sox, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Since returning from Triple-A Durham over the weekend, Heredia has entered the lineup in three of the Rays' four games. All of his starts have come against left-handed pitching, however, suggesting Heredia will remain in a short-side platoon role so long as he's up with the big club. He hasn't offered much fantasy intrigue during his time in the majors this season, slashing .232/.312/.333 with two home runs and no steals across 156 plate appearances.
