Jeff Larish provided all of the Pirates offense in Friday's loss to the Red Sox, delivering a two-run single in his only at-bat.
The 30-year-old Larish hasn't seen time in the big leagues since the 2010 season with the Tigers, but is hoping to make the Pirates Opening Day roster as a reserve infielder. While the odds are certainly against him, he at least got started out on the right foot. Fri, Mar 1, 2013 10:05:00 PM

Pirates re-signed INF/OF Jeff Larish to a minor league contract.

Larish was acquired from the Red Sox in spring training and spent last season with the Pirates' Triple-A affiliate. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2010 and will continue to serve as organizational depth.

Pirates acquired INF/OF Jeff Larish from the Red Sox for cash considerations.

Larish recently signed a minor league deal with the Red Sox after being released by the Orioles. The 29-year-old owns a .224/.308/.380 batting line over 276 plate appearances in the big leagues, so he'll likely function as organizational depth. He's expected to report to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Red Sox signed INF/OF Jeff Larish to a minor league contract.

Larish was released by the Orioles last month. The 29-year-old has a lowly .224/.308/.380 batting line over 276 plate appearances in the big leagues and will serve as organizational depth.

Orioles signed INF/OF Jeff Larish to a minor league contract.

The deal does not include a spring training invite. Larish, a fifth-round pick of the Tigers in 2005, batted .240/.330/.449 with 13 homers, 37 RBI and a .779 OPS over 288 plate appearances with the Phillies' Triple-A affiliate last season. The 29-year-old owns an underwhelming .224/.308/.380 batting line over 276 plate appearances in the big leagues, so look for him to serve as organizational depth for Baltimore.

Phillies signed 1B Jeff Larish to a minor league contract.

We're guessing he'll get an invite to spring training, as well. Larish, 28, put up monster numbers in the minor leagues this year, but batted just .179 with two homers and nine RBI in 75 plate appearances between the Tigers and Athletics. He's likely to begin the 2011 season at Triple-A.

Jeff Larish went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

Larish singled in two runs in the first, hit a solo shot in the fourth and doubled in another run in the eighth. He is batting .333 with a pair of homers and six RBI over six games with the A's. Larish has started five of the last seven games and could be a cheap power source in AL-only leagues down the stretch if you're desperate.

Athletics recalled 1B Jeff Larish from Triple-A Sacramento.

It's interesting that Chris Carter wasn't called up to replace the injured Conor Jackson, but here we are. Larish was 0-for-3 in his first stint with the team earlier this month. The 27-year-old was batting .361 with five homers and 19 RBI with Triple-A Sacramento.

Athletics optioned 1B Jeff Larish to Triple-A Sacramento.

Daric Barton's shoulder turned out to be just fine, so Larish only managed three at-bats during his week-stay with the big club. He returns to a bloated .417/.462/.958 batting line to go along with four homers and 15 RBI over 24 at-bats with Triple-A Sacramento.

Athletics recalled 1B Jeff Larish from Triple-A Sacramento.

Larish is playing first base Monday night with Daric Barton suffering from on-again off-again shoulder spasms, but he doesn't own half the upside of fellow callup Chris Carter. He had inconsistent power in the minor leagues, and struggles against lefties, but at least he can take a walk. Most likely, he goes down once another corner outfielder / first baseman gets healthy, since Carter can back up first, too.

Athletics claimed 1B Jeff Larish off waivers from the Tigers.

Larish, 27, played three games with the Tigers earlier this season and finished 2-for-10 with one RBI. He'll likely head to Triple-A Sacramento.
Tue, Aug 3, 2010 01:36:00 PM

Tigers optioned 1B Jeff Larish to Triple-A Toledo.

Larish was 2-for-10 with one RBI in three games with the Tigers. He could be recalled again soon if the promotion of Jeff Frazier doesn't work out.

Tigers recalled 1B Jeff Larish from Triple-A Toledo.

Larish spent chunks of 2008 and 2009 with the Tigers but has yet to see any big league action this season. He's in the lineup Sunday, though, and he could see a good amount of playing time with Magglio Ordonez's injury.
Sun, Jul 25, 2010 10:19:00 AM

Tigers outrighted INF Jeff Larish to Triple-A Toledo.

He was cleared in order to make room for the newly-signed Jose Valverde. Larish, 27, batted .216/.344/.446 with four home runs and seven RBI in 74 at-bats with the Tigers last season, but spent most of the year with Triple-A Toledo. He underwent season-ending surgery on his right wrist in September. Larish will stay with the team as a non-roster invitee.

Tigers recalled Jeff Larish from Triple-A Toledo and placed him on the 60-day disabled list.

The Tigers needed to place Larish on the 60-day disabled list in order to clear space on the 40-man roster. Larish is expected to have season-ending surgery on his right wrist.
