Red Sox designated INF Jeff Bianchi for assignment.

It's the second time in the last few weeks he's been removed from the 40-man roster. Bianchi declined an outright assignment the first time before eventually re-signing, but his days in the organization are surely over now.
Jun 15 - 4:46 PM

Red Sox re-signed INF Jeff Bianchi to a minor league contract; purchased his contract from Triple-A Pawtucket.

He was removed from the 40-man roster three days ago and opted for free agency one day ago but now finds himself back in the majors. Bianchi offers Boston a solid glove at multiple positions.
May 31 - 12:43 PM

Jeff Bianchi declined an assignment to Triple-A Pawtucket and became a free agent.

Bianchi was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Thursday. He'll take a look and see if anyone else needs a utilityman.
May 30 - 4:07 PM

Red Sox designated INF Jeff Bianchi for assignment.

With Eduardo Rodriguez, Robbie Ross, and Carlos Peguero all joining the team on Thursday, Bianchi gets the boot. The 28-year-old was just called up from Triple-A on Sunday and didn't get a plate appearance. There's a decent chance he'll pass through waivers unclaimed.
May 28 - 5:59 PM

Red Sox purchased the contract of INF Jeff Bianchi from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Bianchi has hit .302/.373/.340 with Pawtucket this season. He'll provide infield depth.
May 24 - 11:31 AM

Red Sox signed SS Jeff Bianchi to a minor league contract.

Bianchi's contract includes an invite to major league camp. The 28-year-old utility infielder can't hit -- hide your eyes; he's a .216/.251/.283 career batter -- but can essentially play all over the diamond defensively. That makes him a nice stash at Triple-A, and Bianchi has a real chance to break camp with the club if it unloads projected bench players such as Allen Craig, Brock Holt and Daniel Nava via trade.
Jan 5 - 4:49 PM

Jeff Bianchi has elected to become a free agent.

Bianchi was outrighted off the Brewers' 40-man roster on October 8. He had the option of accepting an assignment to Triple-A Colorado Springs, but the 28-year-old utility infielder will instead look to catch on with a new team. He's a .216/.251/.283 career hitter.

Brewers sent SS Jeff Bianchi outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Bianchi doesn't have much upside, batting .171/.203/.186 in 2014. He should still get a shot to make the team out of spring despite being removed from the 40-man roster.
Wed, Oct 8, 2014 10:30:00 PM

Brewers activated INF Jeff Bianchi from the 60-day disabled list.

The 27-year-old utility infielder is extremely limited offensively, hitting just .171/.203/.186 with six RBI in 70 at-bats for the Brewers in 2014. He's not even worth rostering in NL-only formats.

Brewers transferred INF Jeff Bianchi to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a roster spot for Matt Pagnozzi, who will join the Brewers as an emergency catcher. Bianchi remains out indefinitely with a right elbow strain.
Mon, Sep 1, 2014 08:27:00 AM

Brewers placed INF Jeff Bianchi on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain.

The injury comes with poor timing for Bianchi, who was in line for an uptick in playing time with starting shortstop Jean Segura mourning the death of his nine-month-old son. Elian Herrera will help out at short for Milwaukee.
Thu, Jul 17, 2014 03:36:00 PM

Jeff Bianchi is not in Sunday's lineup due to a sore right elbow.

Elian Herrera is making his first big league start at shortstop in Bianchi's place. Bianchi should be fine after the All-Star break.

Brewers purchased the contract of INF Jeff Bianchi from Triple-A Nashville.

Bianchi has hit only .145 with a .318 OPS in 21 games for the Brewers this season, but he does give them some defensive versatility. He hit .276/.314/.418 during his time at Nashville.
Sun, Jun 29, 2014 11:48:00 AM

Brewers sent INF Jeff Bianchi outright to Triple-A Nashville.

Bianchi was batting just .145 with a .318 OPS in 21 games for the Brewers. The 27-year-old infielder can either accept the outright assignment or become a free agent. Either way, he is now off Milwaukee's 40-man roster.
