Tigers reassigned OF Nate Schierholtz to minor league camp.

Schierholtz flashed some decent power this spring in the Grapefruit League, but he was never really in the running for an Opening Day roster spot. The 32-year-old outfielder last appeared in the majors in 2014 and hit just .195/.243/.309 between the Cubs and Nationals.

Tigers signed OF Nate Schierholtz to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Schierholtz spent last season with the Hiroshima Carp in Japan's Central League. The 31-year-old batted just .195/.243/.309 during his last stint in the majors in 2014. He'll attempt to win a bench spot in the spring.

Nate Schierholtz has agreed to a one-year contract with the Hiroshima Carp in Japan.

The one-year deal is worth $1.16 million, according to the Japan Times. Schierholtz was released by the Rangers at the end of spring training and probably would have had to settle for a non-guaranteed minor league contract if he remained in the United States.

Rangers released OF Nate Schierholtz.

The club had signed the outfielder to a minor league deal and invited him to spring training, but he was told he would make the club Saturday and asked for his release. He's now a free agent and will attempt to catch on somewhere else.

Nate Shierholtz was informed Saturday that he would not make the Rangers' Opening Day roster.

He would've stood to make $1.75 million if he made the team. It's unclear if he'll ask for his release and look for a job elsewhere, or if he'll accept an assignment to the minor leagues.

Rangers signed OF Nate Schierholtz to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

He'll make $1.75 million assuming he cracks the Opening Day roster, which shouldn't be an issue because he's probably their best option to start in left field versus righties. Schierholtz hit just .195/.243/.309 for the Cubs and Nationals last season but slugged 21 homers in 2013 and has always had a solid glove.

According to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles have been in contact with free agent Nate Schierholtz.

Baltimore could really use an outfielder and the decent free agent options are falling off the board quickly. Schierholtz batted just .195/.243/.309 in 122 games last season between the Cubs and Nationals, but he was pretty productive for Chicago in 2013. Schierholtz will turn 31 years old in February.

According to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, the Marlins are viewing free agent Nate Schierholtz as a candidate to serve as their fourth outfielder in 2015.

Miami has also expressed interest in Ichiro Suzuki for this backup outfield role. Schierholtz hit just .195/.243/.309 in 122 games last season between the Cubs and Nationals, but he was highly productive in 2013 and will only be entering his age-31 season. The former second-round pick of the Giants should come pretty cheap.

Nate Schierholtz had an RBI triple in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

Schierholtz plated Jose Lobaton with a three-bagger in the Nationals' two-run fifth inning, and that's all the tallies they needed. The veteran outfielder has six hits in 33 at-bats since joining Washington.

Nationals purchased the contract of outfielder Nate Schierholtz from Triple-A Syracuse.

Schierholtz is up after just four Triple-A games in which he went 3-for-19. Starts will be few and far between for him unless someone ahead of him gets hurt, so don't expect him to have any fantasy value.

Sources told the Washington Post's James Wagner that Nate Schierholtz is being called up by the Nationals today.

Schierholtz has played in just four minor league games since signing with the Nationals, going 3-for-19 with a homer. While Wagner doesn't have any info on the corresponding move, one imagines that Michael Taylor will be sent back down to the minors to make room.

Nationals signed OF Nate Schierholtz to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Syracuse.

Schierholtz was released by the Cubs last week after batting just .192/.240/.300 in 99 games, but he can give the Nats some left-handed bench power and outfield depth for the stretch run if he proves worthy of a promotion after a couple weeks with the Syracuse Chiefs. The Cubs remain on the hook for most of his remaining 2014 salary. He was awarded $5 million in his final year of arbitration.

Cubs released OF Nate Schierholtz.

Schierholtz was designated for assignment on August 6 and went unclaimed on the waiver wire. He's still got some left-handed pop and is a decent defender, so some team in will likely scoop him up soon.

Cubs designated OF Nate Schierholtz for assignment.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for the addition of Kyuji Fujikawa. The Cubs missed a big opportunity to get something decent for Schierholtz after he had a big first half last year. He's put up a sickly .192/.240/.300 batting line this year, reducing his value to nothing to the point that they just cut him loose. He'll be scooped up by someone once he clears waivers.
