Matt McBride went 1-for-3 in a losing effort against the Giants in Cactus League play on Friday.
He was an offensive juggernaut compared to the rest of his teammates, as the Rockies scratched out just two singles in the ballgame. The 28-year-old is hitting .333 on the spring (8-for-24) as he attempts to latch on as a utility player. Should he make the team, his potential eligibility at catcher makes him an interesting late-round gamble in deep mixed leagues. Mar 14 - 7:14 PM

Rockies sent INF Matt McBride outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He's now off the 40-man roster. McBride batted just .205/.222/.308 during his brief time with the Rockies in 2012.

Rockies recalled INF Matt McBride from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

McBride went 4-for-20 in nine games with the Rox earlier this season. He is doubtful to hold fantasy value.

The Rockies will call up infielder Matt McBride and reliever Rob Scahill Wednesday.

Scahill struck out 151 batters for Triple-A Colorado as a starter, but the Rockies will use him out of the bullpen. McBride batted .200 with a .450 OPS in nine games with the Rockies earlier this season.

Rockies optioned 1B Matt McBride to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

McBride batted .200 with a .450 OPS in nine games with the Rockies. He gets the boot to clear a roster spot for Michael Cuddyer, who is returning from the disabled list.

Rockies purchased the contract of C/1B/OF Matt McBride from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

McBride hasn't been promoted since being included as part of the Ubaldo Jimenez package last July. The 27-year-old was hitting .354/.380/.561 with 10 homers and a .941 OPS in 91 games at the Triple-A level this year. He could have some value in a utility role.

Rockies acquired 1B-OF Matt McBride, RHPs Joe Gardner and Alex White and a player to be named later from the Indians for RHP Ubaldo Jimenez.

McBride injured his eye during batting practice on Friday, but it didn't have an impact on his inclusion in the deal. While he was batting .297/.359/.501 with 15 homers, 56 RBI and an .841 OPS over 393 plate appearances with Double-A Akron this season, the 2006 second-round pick is already 26 years old. It's unlikely that he becomes a long-term solution at first base for the Rockies.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the injury to Indians 1B prospect Matt McBride will not hold up the Ubaldo Jimenez deal.

Disaster averted. McBride suffered an eye fracture when he was hit by an errant ball during batting practice before Sunday's game for Double-A Akron, but the injury evidently isn't serious enough to affect the deal. The trade should be finalized soon.

Indians prospect catcher Matt McBride hit an eighth inning go-ahead two-run homer as the West team defeated the East team 8-7 in the Arizona Fall League's Rising Stars Game on Saturday night.

The West team actually trailed 7-0 before even getting a chance to bat, but they slowly chipped away at the East's lead while eight pitchers combined for 8 1/3 shutout innings. Two Reds prospects led the comeback, as Chris Heisey went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored while Yonder Alonso went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored. Nationals prospect Drew Storen entered the bottom of the eighth inning with a 7-6 lead for the East, but Padres prospect Lance Zawadzki singled and McBride delivered with the decisive pinch-hit two-run blast.

Matt McBride went 3-for-5 with two homers Saturday for Single-A Kinston.

It appears that the Indians have given up on McBride as a catcher, as he's been used strictly at first base for Kinston so far. He's hitting .395/.452/.737 in 38 at-bats, but he's probably not going to have the bat to make it at first in the majors.

Low Single-A Lake County's Matt McBride homered and drove in six runs on Thursday.

He also had a homer and four RBI in the final game before the All-Star break. McBride, who was drafted out of Lehigh last year, is batting .298/.375/.474 with six homers in 215 at-bats. Like Max Ramirez, who is a level ahead of him, McBride faces questions about his ability to remain behind the plate. However, he probably has the better chance of the two. He wouldn't be nearly as much of a prospect if forced to move.
