Date:

Pedro Ciriaco went 3-for-4 with a homer, a double and three RBI against the Nationals on Friday.

Ciriaco is in the running for a spot on the Braves bench, though it won't help matters that he's not on the 40-man. The Braves are already looking at adding Eric Young Jr., at least one pitcher and maybe Kelly Johnson to a 40-man that currently stands at 39, so they might prefer to carry Jace Peterson, who is already on the roster.
Mar 6 - 5:37 PM

Braves signed INF Pedro Ciriaco to a minor league contract.

Ciriaco had been removed from the Royals' 40-man roster. The 29-year-old infielder will presumably receive an invitation to spring training and compete for a utility job.

Royals designated INF Pedro Ciriaco for assignment.

The move was made to clear a spot on the roster for Aaron Brooks. The 28-year-old infielder continues to bounce around the league, and should find another team willing to take a chance on him.

Royals claimed INF Pedro Ciriaco off waivers from the Padres.

Tue, Jul 16, 2013 02:45:00 PM

Padres designated INF Pedro Ciriaco for assignment.

With Yonder Alonso and Jedd Gyorko getting activated from the disabled list, Ciriaco proved to be the odd man out in the Padres infield. He hit .238/.284/.333 with a homer and six steals in his 23 games with the Friars. He's talented enough to where another team should be willing to take a chance on him in a utility role.

Pedro Ciriaco continued his offensive assault as a Padre on Thursday, going 2-for-4 with a triple, a homer, a stolen base, three RBI and two runs scored against the Dodgers.

Acquired from the Red Sox one week ago, Ciriaco is 7-for-17 with two stolen bases in a San Diego uniform, tallying an impressive .412/.444/.706 slash line. There's no chance he sustains a pace even close to this, but Ciriaco is worth using in NL-only formats until Jedd Gyorko is activated.

Pedro Ciriaco went 3-for-6 with a stolen base against the Giants on Monday.

Acquired from the Red Sox in exchange for a player to be named later on Friday, Ciriaco is now 3-for-9 over three games for the Friars. Ciriaco doesn't figure to play or hit enough to become fantasy relevant, but he's usable in deeper NL-only formats at the moment due to Jedd Gyorko's injury.

Padres acquired INF Pedro Ciriaco from the Red Sox in exchange for a player to be named later.

Ciriaco had been designated for assignment on Monday. He should see some playing time at second base while Jedd Gyorko is out and can also play some shortstop and third base.
