Reds' Mark Payton: Sent to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton was optioned to the alternate training site Sunday.

The 29-year-old was recalled by the Reds on Friday with Jonathan India (undisclosed) landing on the injured list, but it was a brief stay in the majors with India rejoining the club Sunday. Payton is 1-for-7 with one walk and one run in 10 appearances this season.

Reds' Mark Payton: Recalled by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton was Mark Sheldon of MLB.com on Friday.

Payton will replace Jonathan India on the roster, who landed on the injured list for undisclosed reasons in a corresponding move. Payton has done very little with his limited major-league opportunities thus far, going 4-for-24 at the plate.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton was optioned to the alternate training site Tuesday.

Payton has been with the big-league club the past 10 days, a stretch in which he went 1-for-6 with a walk and a run in eight appearances. Mike Moustakas (illness) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Reds' Mark Payton: Recalled by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton was recalled by the Reds on Saturday.

Payton joins the active roster for the first time this season. He made his major-league debut as a 28-year-old last season, going 3-for-18 in limited action. Alex Blandino landed on the injured list for undisclosed reasons in a corresponding move.

Reds' Mark Payton: Sent down by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton was optioned to the Reds' alternate training site Thursday.

Payton was competing for a bench spot ahead of the regular season, but he won't break camp with the team even though Shogo Akiyama (hamstring) is opening the campaign on the 10-day injured list. Aristides Aquino and Tyler Naquin will serve as the primary depth options in the outfield to begin the year.

Reds' Mark Payton: Possible roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton could win a bench spot on the Reds' Opening Day roster, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Shogo Akiyama will begin the season on the IL, so the Reds would like to have another left-handed hitting outfielder, preferably one capable of playing center field. Tyler Naquin could also fill that role, and it's possible both could make the team.

Reds' Mark Payton: Optioned to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton was optioned to the Reds' alternate training site Tuesday.

Payton appeared in eight of 12 games during his time on the 28-man roster and hit .167 with a double and five strikeouts. He'll return to alternate camp to make room for newly acquired Brian Goodwin on the major-league roster.

Reds' Mark Payton: Starting again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton will start in left field and will bat seventh in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Brewers, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

He'll pick up his third start in the Reds' five games since his callup from the alternate site last weekend. So long as Nick Senzel (undisclosed) remains on the injured list, Payton looks like he'll fill at least a semi-regular role in the Cincinnati outfield.

Reds' Mark Payton: Added to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton's contract was selected by the Reds on Saturday.

Payton returned to the Reds in early August, and he'll now join the active roster ahead of a potential major-league debut. The 28-year-old hit .334/.400/.653 with 30 home runs and 97 RBI at the Triple-A level last season, although it's unclear how much playing time he could see in the majors. Josh VanMeter was optioned to the alternate training site in a corresponding move.

Reds' Mark Payton: Rejoins Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton was acquired by the Reds from the Athletics on Friday in exchange for cash.

Payton was a Rule 5 draft pick by the Reds in December, but he was returned to the Athletics in late July after he cleared waivers. It's unclear whether the 28-year-old will see any time in the majors, although he'll likely be added to the 60-man roster to work at the team's alternate training site.

Athletics' Mark Payton: Returned to Athletics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton was returned to Oakland on Tuesday, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Payton was selected by the Reds in the Rule 5 draft back in December, but he seemingly always faced long odds to break into a crowded outfield in Cincinnati. He'll now return to the Athletics' organization, where he hit .334/.400/.653 with 30 homers for Triple-A Las Vegas last season.

Reds' Mark Payton: Facing long odds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton, who joined the Reds in December as a Rule 5 pick from the A's, faces long odds in making the Opening Day roster, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. He was hitting .273/.333/.303 in 36 spring training plate appearances.

After the Reds selected Payton, they turned around and signed outfielders Shogo Akiyama and Nick Castellanos. Meanwhile, Philip Ervin has hit well, and both Jesse Winker and Nick Senzel made good progress in their offseason recoveries from injuries.
