Red Sox signed INF/OF Mike McCoy to a minor league contract.
He should be invited to spring training. McCoy has batted only .190/.273/.256 across parts of four seasons as a utility player, but he has some speed and plays all over the diamond. Expect him to begin the year at Triple-A Pawtucket. Fri, Nov 15, 2013 04:58:00 PM

Mike McCoy was removed from Saturday's Grapefruit League game after being involved in a collision with Ryan Langerhans.

McCoy has been diagnosed with a quad contusion and will be taken to the clubhouse for further examination. It sounds like he's avoided a serious injury, but we should know more when the Blue Jays update his status later on Saturday.

Blue Jays designated INF/OF Mike McCoy for assignment.

After batting .198 in 80 games with the Blue Jays in 2011, McCoy went 9-for-52 (.173) in 32 games at the major league level this year. While he provides some versatility, he simply wasn't worth occupying a spot on the 40-man roster.

He'll serve as bench depth.

Blue Jays recalled INF Mike McCoy from Triple-A Las Vegas.

He'll take the place of Eric Thames on the active roster and will serve as infield depth while Yunel Escobar (groin) and Kelly Johnson (hamstring) battle injuries. McCoy was hitting .238/.381/.294 with one homer, 14 RBI and a .675 OPS over 165 plate appearances at the Triple-A level this year and can be ignored in most fantasy leagues.

Blue Jays optioned INF-OF Mike McCoy to Triple-A Las Vegas.

McCoy batted just .182 (6-for-32) this spring, doing little to challenge Omar Vizquel for a utility infield job. Still, he'll likely end up on the Blue Jays' bench at some point this season.

Mike McCoy went 2-for-3 with three runs scored in a 6-5 win over the Orioles on Sunday.

Filling in for an injured Yunel Escobar, McCoy ended an 0-for-14 slide by earning his first multi-hit game since July. The part-time contributor owns a pedestrian .597 OPS through 135 at-bats, and will return to the bench when Escobar rejoins the starting lineup in coming days.

McCoy has been up and down multiple times already this season. He was 18-for-77 (.234) with five doubles, one homer and 5 RBI this year in 43 major league games for the Blue Jays. He will resume functioning as a utilityman and carries no fantasy value.

Blue Jays optioned INF Mike McCoy to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Blue Jays optioned INF Mike McCoy to Triple-A Las Vegas.

McCoy didn't even last 48 hours on the team in his most recent stint, but he probably knew his stay would be short. Needing pitching depth, the Jays will ship him back to Vegas to pick up more at-bats. McCoy has hit .238 with a .622 OPS in 45 plate appearances with Toronto this year.
