Phillies released OF Xavier Paul.
Paul registered one hit -- a home run -- in nine at-bats this spring in the Grapefruit League. Philly is doing him a favor cutting him so early, as the 30-year-old outfielder now has some time to shop around for an organization that might give him a shot. Mon, Mar 16, 2015 08:58:00 AM

Phillies signed OF Xavier Paul to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Paul had just two hits in 21 plate appearances this past season with the Diamondbacks and is a .250/.311/.368 career hitter at the major league level. He will act as organizational depth for the Phils.

Orioles released OF Xavier Paul.

The 29-year-old outfielder has spent the entire season at Triple-A Norfolk, where he has slashed .254/.316/.431 with 12 homers and 56 RBI. He shouldn't have a problem latching on elsewhere.

Paul was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter, so he wasn't due a significant raise, but the Reds decided to cut him loose. The 28-year-old hit .244/.339/.402 with seven homers and 32 RBI in 97 games this past season.

Xavier Paul (shoulder) is in the Reds' starting lineup Wednesday against the Brewers.

Paul has been limited to pinch-hitting duties over the past two days due to a sore shoulder. It shouldn't be an issue moving forward.

Xavier Paul (shoulder) is expected to return to the lineup on Wednesday.

Paul hasn't played since last Friday, when he hurt his right shoulder while trying to make a catch in foul territory. "He'll probably be back hopefully on Wednesday," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "He's able to pinch-hit [Monday]."

Xavier Paul has been scratched from Saturday's lineup with a right shoulder injury.

Paul was injured while trying to make a catch in foul territory in the ninth inning of Friday's loss, but it's not a major concern. Derrick Robinson is starting in left field Saturday against the Mariners.
Sat, Jul 6, 2013 02:39:00 PM

Xavier Paul hit a three-run home run for his only hit of the night in the Reds' loss to the Rockies on Wednesday.

Paul has filled in admirably for the Reds in left field in Ryan Ludwick's absence, posting a .276/.382/.438 line in 45 games. With Ludwick still sidelined for the foreseeable future, Paul should continue to get the lion's share of playing time in left.
