Yankees' Zack Granite: Lands with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite signed a minor-league deal with the Yankees on Friday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Granite will receive an invitation to major-league spring training, though he's not particularly likely to make the team. The 27-year-old has played just 40 career games at the highest level, all in 2017 with the Twins, hitting .237/.321/.290.

Rangers' Zack Granite: Assigned outright to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday.

The 27-year-old failed to make a major-league appearance in 2019, but hit .290/.331/.375 with three home runs with Triple-A Nashville.

Rangers' Zack Granite: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Friday.

Granite was promoted Wednesday but did not make an appearance in his brief stay with the Rangers. The 26-year-old was hitting .291/.325/.362 in 48 games for the Sounds prior to his callup.

Rangers' Zack Granite: Gets call to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Granite will provide additional outfield depth for the Rangers while Joey Gallo contends with what is considered to be a minor wrist injury. Prior to earning a promotion, Granite was hitting .291/.325/.362 with one homer and 12 stolen bases in 48 games for Triple-A Nashville. Kyle Bird was returned to Nashville in a corresponding roster move.

Rangers' Zack Granite: Shipped to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

With Joey Gallo (groin) trending towards being ready for the start of the season, Granite will open the season in the minors. The 26-year-old, who hit .240/.269/.360 with five stolen bases in 12 games this spring, should be one of the first players called upon should an opening arise in Texas' outfield.

Rangers' Zack Granite: Still in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite is 6-for-15 and perfect on four stolen-base attempts since being acquired from the Twins, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The 26-year-old outfielder is still in camp and provides insurance until the Rangers get a read on Joey Gallo (groin), who is expected to take at-bats in a minor-league game Friday. Granite plays plus defense and, assuming Gallo doesn't need a stint on the injured list. is expected to open the year at Triple-A Nashville.

Rangers' Zack Granite: Shipped to Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite was acquired by the Rangers from the Twins on Sunday for minor-league pitcher Xavier Moore and cash, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Granite was designated for assignment when the Twins signed Marwin Gonzalez, and the Rangers opted to acquire him via trade rather than risk the waiver claim. The 26-year-old made his MLB debut in 2018 and slashed .237/.321/.290 in 107 plate appearances, and he should have an outside chance to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster with Texas.

Twins' Zack Granite: Loses roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins designated Granite for assignment Monday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Granite's removal from the 40-man roster opens up a spot for utility man Marwin Gonzalez, whose two-year contract with the Twins was officially announced. The 26-year-old Granite was never able to earn much of an extended look in a crowded Minnesota outfield, but his elite speed, solid defense and excellent plate discipline could prompt teams to put in a waiver claim.

Twins' Zack Granite: Returning from shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite started in center field and went 0-for-2 in Sunday's spring training loss to Boston. Granite had a placenta tissue injection to help repair a torn rotator cuff, which ended his 2018 season in July, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Granite appeared on the cusp of carving out a reserve or platoon role in the majors last spring but failed to make the 25-man roster. He then missed most of the Triple-A season with the shoulder injury. At age 26, he may have missed his window to win a regular major-league role with the Twins. He'll compete for a reserve spot this spring but will likely return to Triple-A to serve as organizational depth.

Twins' Zack Granite: Placed on minor-league DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite was placed on the minor-league 7-day disabled list on Wednesday due to a right shoulder contusion, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Granite previously spent a few weeks on the disabled list due to the same injury near the end of April, and it wouldn't be surprising if he's been dealing with shoulder problems throughout the course of the 2018 campaign. Over 66 games with Triple-A Rochester, he's slashed just .212/.284/.246 with eight extra-base hits and four RBI.

Twins' Zack Granite: Back from MiLB DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite (shoulder) was activated from the minor-league disabled list Thursday, Brandon Warne of The Athletic Minnesota reports.

The outfield prospect had been out of action since April 21. Granite will now return to action, looking to improve the .495 OPS he has in eight games with Triple-A Rochester this season.

Twins' Zack Granite: Placed on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite was put on the 7-day disabled list Saturday due to a right shoulder contusion, Brandon Warne of The Athletic reports.

The organization didn't announce a timetable for Granite's return. Over eight games with Triple-A Rochester, Granite is hitting .161 with a .495 OPS.

Twins' Zack Granite: Will start season at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins optioned Granite to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Granite struggled at the plate this spring with a .122 batting average and .364 OPS in 41 at-bats. Non-roster invitee Ryan LaMarre earned a roster spot with a hot bat this spring and the signing of Logan Morrison in late February also diminished the 25-year-old's chances of cracking the Opening Day roster, as previously expected designated hitter Robbie Grossman is now slated for a role as more of a depth outfielder. A replication of Granite's slash line of .338/.392/.475 -- and 18 stolen bases in 284 at-bats -- for Rochester in 2017 would certainly help to earn him a promotion again this season.

Twins' Zack Granite: Returns from shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite (shoulder) went 0-for-1 and played center field in Sunday's spring training finale against Boston.

Granite has a right shoulder contusion but showed he's healthy enough to play. It's not clear if he'll make the final 25-man roster as the Twins will decide between him and Ryan LaMarre before Wednesday's deadline.

Twins' Zack Granite: Dealing with shoulder contusion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite is dealing with a right shoulder contusion, Dan Hayes of The Athletic Minnesota reports.

With Opening Day right around the corner, this could jeopardize Granite's status for the start of the season. At this point it's unclear when Granite picked up the injury or how serious it is, but his status should be updated once the Twins provide more clarity of the situation.

Twins' Zack Granite: Struggling this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite went 0-for-3 in Thursday's spring training win over Tampa Bay. He's hitting just .188 (5-for-32) this spring as he battles Robbie Grossman for a reserve outfield spot.

Granite's odds of making the 25-man roster decreased when the Twins signed Logan Morrison, as Grossman moves from starting DH to a reserve outfield spot, making it harder for Granite to make the team. Grossman is also out of minor-league options, while Granite can be optioned to Triple-A.

Twins' Zack Granite: Fighting for final bench spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite is competing for the Twins' final bench spot this spring, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

With three of the team's four bench spots already locked up by Robbie Grossman, Ehire Adrianza and Eduardo Escobar, Granite is set to compete with Kennys Vargas for the remaining roster spot. The 25-year-old is Minnesota's best defensive option for the fourth outfielder role, but his unremarkable bat, along with the fact the Vargas is out of minor-league options, likely has him on the outside looking in at a roster spot. A strong camp coupled with a mediocre showing from Vargas this spring could earn him an Opening Day roster spot, however.

Twins' Zack Granite: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Granite will look to take advantage of his second opportunity with the Twins after a mediocre first stint earlier in the season, when the 24-year-old hit .250 with a .605 OPS over 18 games in July and August. He put together a much more respectable .338/.392/.475 line with five homers and 15 stolen bases in 71 games with Rochester. With Robbie Grossman (thumb) on the shelf, Granite should serve as the Twins' fourth outfielder.

Twins' Zack Granite: Optioned to Rochester
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite was sent down to Triple-A Rochester after Friday's game, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Granite was off to a horrifically slow start with just a .605 OPS through 18 games, and he has been on the bench to start each of the last three games. Don't expect the Twins to give up on Granite after this disappointing first stint, but since he hasn't been able to earn consistent at-bats at the major-league level, he'll head back to the minors for more seasoning.

Twins' Zack Granite: Out of lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granite is not in Wednesday's lineup against San Diego, The Star Tribune's LaVelle E. Neal reports.

Granite will retreat to the bench after starting the previous 13 games in the outfield. During the span, the 24-year-old has hit .306/.358/.327 with seven RBI and five runs. Byron Buxton draws the start in center for the second of a two-game set versus the Padres.
