Rangers' Andy Ibanez: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ibanez was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Ibanez joined the major-league roster in early May and appeared in nine games while serving mostly as a depth option. The 28-year-old hit .143 with a double and two RBI in his first taste of major-league action but will now return to the minors going forward.

Rangers' Andy Ibanez: Fills in at DH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ibanez started at designated hitter and went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Twins.

The 28-year-old, Cuban-born Ibanez had his contract selected this week and made his MLB debut Tuesday, when he delivered a pinch-hit single. The Rangers have always liked his ability to hit, according to Sam Blum of the Dallas Morning News, but his defense has been a hindrance to regular playing time at the major-league level. Manager Chris Woodward believes he's put in the work to improve as a fielder. With Brock Holt (hamstring) sidelined, Ibanez will get an opportunity to play third base.

Rangers' Andy Ibanez: Contract selected by Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ibanez had his contract selected by the Rangers on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old was sent to minor-league camp at the end of spring training and will join the big-league roster after spending the first month of the season at the alternate site. Ibanez is looking to make his MLB debut after posting an .872 OPS in 121 games at Triple-A during 2019. Brock Holt (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Andy Ibanez: Sent to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ibanez was sent to minor-league camp Saturday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

Ibanez was potentially in the mix to break camp as a designated hitter following injuries to Willie Calhoun (groin) and Khris Davis (quadriceps), but he was always a long shot. He could make his big-league debut at some point this year but isn't on the 40-man roster, so he won't necessarily be one of the first names to get the call.

Rangers' Andy Ibanez: Enters DH mix
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ibanez could make the Rangers' roster as a right-handed designated hitter, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Ibanez entered the DH mix after the Rangers announced Khris Davis (quadriceps) will miss a minimum of three weeks. That's on top of Willie Calhoun (groin), who has been ruled out to start the season. Davis was expected to serve as the primary designated hitter and a right-handed balance to a lefty-dominant order. That means Ibanez could claim a roster spot, but he would need to be added to the 40-man roster. That might be a roster complication for the Rangers, so they could opt to wait until Davis is ready to return, getting by in the interim with lefties like Ronald Guzman or Nate Lowe, with the additional possibility of keeping righty Eli White on the major-league roster.

Rangers' Andy Ibanez: Could get September look
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ibanez is in line for a callup to Texas, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The 27-year-old Ibanez is not an advanced prospect, but he's hit at every level and should get a chance on a team that just finished a 3-17 stretch and is tied with Boston and Pittsburgh for the lowest winning percentage in the majors (.333). "As an organization, we value him, especially with the bat in his hand," Texas manager Chris Woodward said. "He gives you a quality at-bat every time. He hits the ball hard, stays in the strike zone, has a ton of adjust-ability on every pitch. He handles everything, every type of pitch, every type of velo, every type of speed, spin, everything." The issue with Ibanez has been finding him a home defensively. In two seasons at Triple-A, Ibanez slashed .291/.359/.454 with 32 home runs and 120 RBI. The Rangers have already started an evaluation of Anderson Tejeda (2B and SS) and Nick Solak (2B) while giving current third baseman Isiah Kiner-Falefa playing time at shortstop.

Rangers' Andy Ibanez: Makes summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ibanez was added to the Rangers' 60-man player pool Sunday.

Ibanez is primarily a second baseman but added third base and shortstop to his resume over the last two seasons in Triple-A. The 27-year-old Ibanez, who is not on the 40-man roster, provides emergency infield depth. He slashed .300/.375/.497 with 20 home runs and 65 RBI over 529 plate appearances for Triple-A Nashville in 2019.

Rangers' Andy Ibanez: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ibanez went 1-for-4 with an RBI for Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday.

An oblique injury cost Ibanez most of spring training, but timing has not been an issue early on; Ibanez is 7-for-12 with a pair of doubles and zero strikeouts through three games. While Ibanez lacks the requisite power or speed to be an attractive dynasty piece, he has enough bat-to-ball ability to crack the big leagues, perhaps as soon as this summer.

Rangers' Andy Ibanez: Out indefinitely with oblique
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ibanez is expected to miss the rest of spring training with a strained right oblique, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

While he is far from a high-end prospect, Ibanez was roughly a league-average hitter (99 wRC+) over a full season at Triple-A last year, so he could get a few cups of coffee in the majors this season. It is possible he will open the year on the minor-league injured list.

Rangers' Andy Ibanez: Smacks two homers for Double-A squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ibanez (finger) went 4-for-5 with two home runs and a career-high six RBI for Double-A Frisco on Wednesday.

Ibanez was making just his second appearance since being activated from the 7-day disabled list earlier this week following a six-week layoff due to a finger injury. The 24-year-old generally impressed during his debut season in the United States in 2016, though his numbers tumbled upon moving to the Texas League in the second half of the campaign. He'll need to find sustained success at Frisco before receiving a promotion to Triple-A Round Rock.
