Cubs' Johneshwy Fargas: Heads back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas was returned to Triple-A Iowa on Monday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Fargas appeared in 15 major-league games after he was claimed off waivers by the Cubs in July, and he slashed .226/.250/.290 with three runs, two RBI and a stolen base during that time. However, the 26-year-old will now be removed from the 40-man roster.

Cubs' Johneshwy Fargas: Contract selected Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas' contract was selected from Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Fargas was outrighted to the minors in late August, and he slashed .230/.269/.392 with two homers, 11 runs, six RBI and four stolen bases across 21 appearances in Iowa since then. He'll serve as outfield depth after Nick Martini (undisclosed) was placed on the injured list Friday.

Cubs' Johneshwy Fargas: Remains in organization
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Fargas was designated for assignment Wednesday, and he'll remain in the organization at Triple-A Iowa. The 26-year-old has appeared in 10 games at the Triple-A level this year, hitting .275 with a homer, nine runs, three RBI and 10 stolen bases.

Cubs' Johneshwy Fargas: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs designated Fargas for assignment Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Fargas was a casualty from the 40-man roster after the Cubs needed to create a spot for their starting pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Reds, Adrian Sampson, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Iowa. After coming over from the Mets in late July on a waiver claim, Fargas appeared in 13 games for Chicago and hit .269 with one stolen base. Michael Hermosillo should serve as the Cubs' clear fourth outfielder now that Fargas is out of the picture.

Cubs' Johneshwy Fargas: Called up by Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas was recalled by the Cubs on Friday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Fargas was claimed off waivers from the Mets last week, and he'll join the major-league club as outfield depth following Friday's trade deadline. The 26-year-old appeared in seven games for the Mets this year and went 6-for-21 with four extra-base hits, three RBI and a run.

Cubs' Johneshwy Fargas: Claimed by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas was claimed off waivers by the Cubs on Friday and subsequently optioned to Triple-A Iowa.

Fargas was designated for assignment by the Mets earlier this week, but he'll remain on a 40-man roster with the Cubs. The 26-year-old went 6-for-21 with three doubles and three RBI in seven big-league games this season, and he otherwise split time between the Double-A and Triple-A levels.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas was designated for assignment Monday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Fargas has appeared in seven big-league games this season, going 6-for-21 at the plate. He hit the injured list with a shoulder issue in late May and was optioned as soon as he got healthy in mid-July. He'll remain in an organizational depth role for the Mets if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets activated Fargas (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list Wednesday and optioned him to Double-A Binghamton.

After the Mets lost several key outfielders to the injured list early in the season, Fargas was summoned from the minors in mid-May to provide the big club with a healthy body. He lasted only seven games before succumbing to an injury of his own, a sprained left shoulder. Fargas was cleared to begin a rehab assignment in late June, and after seeing action in eight games in the minors, the 26-year-old looks to be healthy again. However, with the Mets having since returned most of their regulars to the lineup, Fargas won't be needed at the big-league level.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Ready for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas (shoulder) was sent to the Mets' Florida Complex League affiliate Wednesday to begin a rehab assignment, Jacob Resnick of SNY.tv reports.

After receiving his first big-league call-up May 17, the 26-year-old outfielder went 6-for-21 across seven games before landing on the injured list with an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder. Fargas is ready to play again after a month-long shutdown, but expect him to remain on an extended rehab assignment now that the Mets have since returned multiple outfielders from the IL in recent weeks. Once activated, Fargas will likely be optioned to Triple-A Syracuse.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Heading to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas was diagnosed with an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder after undergoing an MRI and will be placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The initial diagnosis of an AC joint sprain proved to be correct. Fargas won't require surgery and should be considered week-to-week, as he's likely to spend more than the 10-day minimum on the shelf.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Still awaiting MRI results
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets are still awaiting MRI results on Fargas's shoulder, according to manager Luis Rojas, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Fargas was rumored to be heading to the injured list as soon as Tuesday, but the Mets appear to be waiting for the MRI results before pulling the trigger. With New York's outfield burdened by a plethora of other injuries, the club will certainly hope it can keep Fargas active.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Likely headed to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets are expected to place Fargas (shoulder) on the 10-day injured list as soon as Tuesday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

The injuries to the New York outfield continue to pile up, as Fargas is set to join all of Michael Conforto (hamstring), Brandon Nimmo (finger), Kevin Pillar (nose) and Albert Almora (shoulder) on the IL. With Dominic Smith needed at first base to fill in for the injured Pete Alonso (hand), Cameron Maybin and Khalil Lee are left as the most experienced options in the outfielders, though infielders Jose Peraza, Jonathan Villar and Brandon Drury probably offer enough versatility to fill in as outfielders in the short term. Due to the mounting injuries, Morosi suggests that the Mets could look to make an outside move to replace Fargas on the active roster. The speedy 26-year-old batted .286 with four extra-base hits, three RBI and a run in seven games before exiting Monday's loss to the Rockies with an AC joint sprain to his left shoulder.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Dealing with shoulder sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas left Monday's game against the Rockies due to a left AC joint sprain, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

It's unclear whether Fargas will be forced to take a trip to the injured list as a result of the injury. Khalil Lee and Cameron Maybin could be in line for action in center field if Fargas misses extended time.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Exits after collision with fence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas has been removed from Monday's game against the Rockies after running into the outfield fence, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Fargas was initially able to remain in the game, but he was removed the next inning. The extent of his injury is unclear at this point.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Plays hero in extras Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas went 2-for-5 with a triple and two RBI in Friday's 6-5 extra-innings win over the Marlins.

Getting the start in center field and batting eighth for the injury-ravaged Mets, Fargas came through in a big way, driving in two runs in the top of the 12th inning with his first career triple, although he was thrown out at the plate trying to stretch it into an inside-the-park homer. The 26-year-old has started four straight games in center to begin his MLB career, going 4-for-13 with a double in addition to his three-bagger and three total RBI, and he'll likely be a fixture in the Mets' lineup until the outfield gets healthier.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Notches first big-league hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas went 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Monday's win over Atlanta.

Fargas drove home a run in the top of the eighth inning on a double to right field, increasing the Mets' lead to three. This was also the first major-league base knock of the outfielder's career. Fargas could continue to see time in the outfield with Michael Conforto (hamstring) and Jeff McNeil (hamstring) on the injured list.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas is starting Monday's game against Atlanta.

Fargas will make his major-league debut as the center fielder in Monday's matchup while batting ninth. The 26-year-old's contract was selected by the Mets on Monday, and he should compete for playing time with Khalil Lee in the outfield while Michael Conforto (hamstring) and Jeff McNeil (hamstring) are sidelined.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Contract selected by Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas' contract was selected by the Mets on Monday.

Fargas will be in line to make his major-league debut in the near future after Michael Conforto (hamstring) and Jeff McNeil (hamstring) were placed on the injured list Monday. Fargas could compete with Khalil Lee for playing time in the outfield while Conforto and McNeil are sidelined.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Call-up imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets are expected to select Fargas' contract from Triple-A Syracuse prior to Monday's series opener in Atlanta, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

The Mets are expected to deactivate Michael Conforto (hamstring) and Jeff McNeil (hamstring) later Monday, with the two joining a growing New York injured list that already includes two other outfielders in Brandon Nimmo (finger) and Albert Almora (shoulder). Dominic Smith and Kevin Pillar should be locked into everyday roles in two of the outfield spots in the short term, but Fargas, Jake Hager and Jose Peraza are the likely candidates to fill the other opening. Fargas, a 26-year-old who has yet to appear in the big leagues, sports a .718 OPS to go with a perfect 8-for-8 mark on stolen-base attempts through eight games at Syracuse.

Mets' Johneshwy Fargas: Secures spot in player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fargas has been named to the Mets' 60-man player pool, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

The 25-year-old has yet to play above Double-A in his career, but Fargas' speed -- he swiped 50 bases in 73 attempts over 127 games last year in the Giants' system -- offers an element no other player in the Mets' organization can really match. Given the changes to the extra-inning rules for the 2020 season, he could become the team's 'designated runner' if he works his way onto the active roster.
