Nick Hundley went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Brewers on Tuesday.
Getting his second straight start behind the dish, Hundley provided some unexpected offense in the victory. Hundley contributed an RBI single in the first inning and later added a double. Although Wilin Rosario is his offensive superior, Hundley has much better defensive chops and appears to be the preferred choice of Rockies manager Walt Weiss out of the gate. It's a bad sign for fantasy owners hoping for a rebound from Rosario in 2015. Apr 7 - 11:39 PM

Nick Hundley homered off Clayton Kershaw in the Rockies' 2-2 exhibition tie with the Dodgers on Tuesday.

It was a third-inning shot to left field. Hundley is expected to be the Rockies' primary catcher this season, though Wilin Rosario and Michael McKenry also figure to get some starts. Hundley probably won't be a good option in standard mixed fantasy leagues.
Mar 10 - 7:05 PM

Nick Hundley went 1-for-3 with a double, two RBI, and two runs scored in Sunday's Cactus League match-up versus the Padres.

Hundley hit well against his former team. He tied up the game at four apiece in the third inning with a two run double. He should get the lion's share of the playing time behind the plate along with Wilin Rosario and Michael McKenry.
Mar 8 - 8:23 PM

Rockies signed C Nick Hundley to a two-year, $6.25 million contract.

Hundley gets $3.1 million this season, and $3.15 million in 2016. Assuming the Rockies trade out-of-favor Wilin Rosario, Hundley and the underrated Michael McKenry could make for an interesting NL-only catching platoon option. Hundley hit .243/.273/.358 with six home runs and 22 RBI over 83 games last season between the Padres and Orioles. He's always had muscle, so don't count out Hundley's ability to become fantasy relevant in Coors Field.
Jan 5 - 6:03 PM

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Rockies have signed Nick Hundley to a two-year contract, pending a physical.

The contract is worth a little more than $6 million. The Orioles were hoping to retain Hundley and even offered him a two-year contract, but it wasn't for as much money and they couldn't guarantee playing time. He'll be in a better situation in Colorado, where the club has soured on Wilin Rosario behind the plate. Rosario's name has surfaced in trade rumors this offseason and Hundley's addition makes a deal more likely. Hundley batted .243/.273/.358 with six home runs and 22 RBI over 83 games last season between the Padres and Orioles.

According to Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports, Nick Hundley has a two-year offer on the table from another team, making a return to the Orioles unlikely.

The O's had been hoping to re-sign the veteran backstop to a one-year deal as an insurance policy behind Matt Wieters. In 218 at-bats between the Padres and Orioles in 2014, Hundley hit .243/.273/.358.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Rockies have "expressed interest" in Nick Hundley.

Hundley hit .243/.273/.358 over 218 at-bats for the Padres and Orioles last season. He would likely serve as a backup for Michael McKenry, as there's a high probability that current starter Wilin Rosario is traded in the coming weeks. Crasnick wrote that Rosario would be traded to an AL team if they acquired Hundley.

Roch Kubatko of reports the Orioles would like to re-sign Nick Hundley.

The O's declined the $5 million option on Hundley Saturday, but they have some interest in bringing him back at a reduced rate. Hundley was acquired to help out at catcher after the Orioles lost Matt Wieters to injury this past season. With Wieters coming back and Caleb Joseph a capable backup, the O's certainly won't go crazy in their attempts to retain the 31-year-old.

Orioles declined C Nick Hundley's $5 million option for 2015.

With Matt Wieters coming back and Caleb Joseph around as a cheaper backup, the O's don't need Hundley. The veteran backstop will likely have to settle for a backup job this winter.

The Orioles plan to decline Nick Hundley's $5 million option for 2015.

He would be a fine backup catcher, but the Orioles can fill that role more cheaply with Caleb Joseph when they get Matt Wieters (elbow) back next season. Hundley has some pop but will probably have to settle for a backup job this offseason.

Nick Hundley went 2-for-4 with a home run and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.

Hundley hit his fourth home run of the year, a solo job, in the seventh inning. Much more impressive was his stolen base, just the eighth of his career. Hundley has played sparingly with Caleb Joseph swinging a hot bat, and he'll continue to serve primarily as a backup from here out.

Nick Hundley came through with an RBI single off Adam Warren in the 10th inning on Friday, leading the Orioles to a walk-off 3-2 victory.

The veteran backstop finished the night 2-for-4 with that critical RBI. With the two-hit effort, he's now hitting .264/.282/.384 with 13 RBI in 125 at-bats on the season. If he continues to swing the bat well, he could be in line for additional playing time behind the plate for the Orioles.

Nick Hundley had a two-out go-ahead RBI single to lead the Orioles to a 7-6 victory over the Brewers in 10 innings on Monday.

Hundley, who was acquired from the Padres over the weekend as insurance for Matt Wieters, went 1-for-5 with a strikeout in his O's debut. He's worth a pickup in AL-only leagues, though Steve Clevenger should still get plenty of at-bats.
Mon, May 26, 2014 06:14:00 PM

Orioles acquired C Nick Hundley and cash considerations from the Padres in exchange for LHP Troy Patton.

Hundley had been functioning as the third catcher in San Diego, hitting .271/.271/.373 with a homer and three RBI in his 59 at-bats. He'll work in tandem with Steve Clevenger to fill the O's void behind the plate while Matt Wieters is sidelined.
Sat, May 24, 2014 12:28:00 PM

Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres have had active talks with teams involving a trade of Nick Hundley.

Hundley has been given just 21 plate appearances this season as the Padres juggle three catchers on their roster, though he is batting .333/.333/.619. San Diego seems satisfied with Yasmani Grandal and Rene Rivera as their catching tandem, making Hundley and his $4 million salary expendable. The 30-year-old has hit just .238/.297/.393 during his career, but he has some pop and could produce some decent offensive numbers away from Petco Park.
