Date:

Abraham Almonte left Wednesday's game against the Orioles with an illness.

Almonte was 0-for-2 before being replaced by Ryan Goins in the outfield in the sixth inning. For now, he should be considered day-to-day.
May 9 - 9:05 PM

Abraham Almonte went 1-for-4 and jacked a solo homer during Saturday's loss to the Tigers.

He busted a Blaine Hardy pitch over the wall in the fifth inning. It was his second homer of the season to go with a paltry .226 batting average and eight RBI. He is serving as a part-time outfielder for the Royals this year.
May 5 - 8:27 PM

Abraham Almonte went 3-for-4 and scored twice as his team fell to the Tigers on Saturday.

He singled three times in the game to boost his batting average to .233 on the season. The former Mariner, Padre and Indian is serving as a backup outfielder in his first season with the Royals.
Apr 21 - 4:35 PM

Abraham Almonte delivered a game-tying pinch-hit RBI single in the ninth inning of Friday's victory over the Tigers.

Almonte made the most of his lone at-bat in the second game of Friday's doubleheader, lining a Shane Greene offering into right field that plated Ryan Goins to tie the game. He has struggled in his limited action with the Royals this year, hitting just .154/.185/.269 with two RBI.
Apr 20 - 9:59 PM

Abraham Almonte smacked his first home run as a Royal Tuesday in Toronto.

Almonte's solo jack came off of Joe Biagini in the sixth inning. It was his only hit in five trips to the plate, and the former Indian has just two hits over 17 at-bats since arriving in Kansas City.
Apr 17 - 10:25 PM

Royals recalled OF Abraham Almonte from Triple-A Omaha.

He'll replace the injured Alex Gordon (hip) on the active roster. Almonte was recently claimed off waivers from the Indians and should see at least semi-regular playing time in the Royals' outfield. He's a .246/.300/.381 career hitter in the majors.
Apr 10 - 4:36 PM

Royals claimed outfielder Abraham Almonte off waivers from the Indians.

The Royals could definitely use another outfielder capable of hitting lefties -- they were starting a Alex Gordon-Paulo Orlando-Jon Jay outfield against Francisco Liriano today -- but that's not Almonte; while he's a switch-hitter, he's batted just .245/.291/339 against southpaws in his career. He's an adequate bench player overall, but better players are still sitting in the free agent pool.
Apr 2 - 2:50 PM

Indians designated OF Abraham Almonte for assignment.

Almonte batted just .174/.269/.304 over 14 games this spring in the Cactus League and he also struggled offensively in 69 games with Cleveland last season. But the 28-year-old outfielder might be attractive to other teams on waivers.
Mar 29 - 11:47 AM

Abraham Almonte left Tuesday's Cactus League game due to a shin contusion.

It's nothing serious, though Almonte might sit out of games and workouts for a couple of days. He's trying to make the Indians as a backup outfielder this spring.
Feb 27 - 6:49 PM

Indians and OF Abraham Almonte avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $825,000 contract.

The 28-year-old outfielder hit .233/.314/.366 with three homers and 14 RBI in 195 plate appearances this year. He will compete for a role as a backup outfielder again in 2018.

Abraham Almonte went 2-for-5 and drove in three runs to help lead his team over the Tigers on Saturday.

He laced a two-run single to center in the first inning, and followed that up with a run-scoring double in the fifth. The veteran backup outfielder has not gotten too many opportunities this year and hasn't been very efficient when given the chance to play. He has a paltry .232 batting average with three homers and 13 RBI in 56 games.
