Giants signed 1B Chris Marrero to a minor league contract.

Marrero last saw a major league at-bat back in 2013, with the Nationals. In 2016, while playing at Triple-A Pawtucket in the Red Sox system, the former first-round pick hit .284/.344/.494 with 23 homers and 71 RBI over 490 at-bats. Now 28 years old, it is looking increasingly unlikely that he will be able to carve out a legitimate role at the major league level. Time still remaining on that career, though, time still remaining.

Red Sox minor league 1B Chris Marrero took home MVP honors in Wednesday's Triple-A All-Star Game by leading the International League to a 4-2 win over the Pacific Coast League.

He put the IL ahead 4-2 by belting a solo shot in the eighth inning off Iowa right-hander Armando Rivero. Marrero has had a heck of a week. The Pawtucket first baseman won the Triple-A Home Run Derby with a monster performance on Monday night and was named International League Player of the Week after hitting .577 with eight runs and a 1.154 slugging percentage between July 4 and July 10. A first-round pick in 2006, Marrero hasn't played in the majors since 2013.

Red Sox minor league 1B Chris Marrero won the Triple-A Home Run Derby Monday night in Charlotte.

He took the title by out-slugging Reno outfielder Kyle Jensen in the final round. Marrero has ripped 16 blasts for Triple-A Pawtucket this year, which ranks second in the International League. The 28-year-old isn't really a prospect at this point—he made his big league debut with Washington five years ago—but he's done nice work this year with a .297 average in 84 contests.

Red Sox re-signed 1B Chris Marrero to a minor league contract.

It's not clear whether he's been given a big league invitation to spring training. Marrero hit .271/.316/.420 with seven homers over 282 plate appearances between Double- and Triple-A with the White Sox and Red Sox in 2015.

White Sox 1B prospect Chris Marrero jolted a grand slam Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Charlotte.

He also contributed two singles as the Knights routed Durham 17-6. The 27-year-old has hit .556 during his five-game hitting streak. Marrero is now batting .356 across two levels this season. A former first-round pick, Marrero hasn't appeared in the big leagues since 2013.

Orioles reassigned 1B Chris Marrero, RHPs Mike Wright and Fabio Castillo to minor league camp.

Marrero has yet to appear in Grapefruit League action due to a strained oblique. None of these three cuts ever had a real chance to crack the Opening Day roster.

Chris Marrero (oblique) took 10 dry swings Wednesday.

Marrero is still feeling some discomfort in the area of his strained oblique, but the hope is that he'll be ready for normal swings by early next week. He is likely to open the 2014 season at Triple-A Norfolk.

Chris Marrero (oblique) will take dry swings Wednesday.

Marrero, a non-roster invitee with the Nationals, has been sidelined for most of the spring due to an oblique injury. He's likely to begin the year in Triple-A.

Chris Marrero (oblique) attempted to swing a bat on Saturday but still felt discomfort in his strained oblique.

The injury isn't believed to be serious, but it will still be a few more days before he is able to resume full workouts. He's attempting to earn a spot on the Orioles bench this spring.

Chris Marrero has been sidelined the last two days with a slight oblique strain.

It doesn't sound like it will be anything that would affect his availability for the start of the season. A non-roster invitee, Marrero isn't going to crack the Opening Day roster, anyway.
Sun, Feb 23, 2014 01:31:00 PM

Orioles signed 1B Chris Marrero to a minor league contract.

Marrero was the 15th overall pick in the 2006 MLB Amateur Draft and has at times shown signs of promise, but the Nationals got tired of waiting and cut him loose at the end of the season. Marrero, now 25 years old, is a .281/.353/.413 hitter in 275 games at Triple-A.
Mon, Dec 16, 2013 03:05:00 PM

Nationals sent 1B Chris Marrero outright to Triple-A Syracuse.

Marrero appeared in six games with the Nationals this season, but spent the bulk of the year at the Triple-A level. A former top prospect with the Nats, he's now off the 40-man roster and can become a minor league free agent after the World Series.
Thu, Oct 24, 2013 05:00:00 PM

Nationals optioned 1B Chris Marrero to Triple-A Syracuse.

The 24-year-old only garnered 16 at-bats during his time with the Nationals, going 2-for-16 with an RBI and four strikeouts. He'll continue to serve as organizational depth in the minor leagues, and should have another chance as a bench bat with the Nats later in the season.
Fri, Jun 28, 2013 11:20:00 PM

Nationals recalled 1B Chris Marrero from Triple-A Syracuse.

No word yet on any corresponding moves. With Sunday's doubleheader against the Twins, the Nationals have the luxury of using a 26th player on their roster, but initial indications are that Marrero will remain with the team for longer than just one day. The 24-year-old was hitting .306/.355/.502 with 10 homers and 44 RBI in 55 games at Triple-A Syracuse.
