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 purchased the contract of INF Pedro Ciriaco from Triple-A Omaha.

Kansas City claimed Ciriaco off waivers from the Padres in July and outrighted him to Triple-A. Ciriaco slashed .228/.288/.342 with two home runs and eight steals in 51 games earlier this season between San Diego and Boston. He'll serve as a utility man.

Royals sent INF Pedro Ciriaco outright to Triple-A Omaha.

Royals claimed INF Pedro Ciriaco off waivers from the Padres.

Ciriaco, 27, was designated for assignment on Friday. He's batting just .228/.288/.342 with two home runs and eight steals in 51 games this season and should serve in a utility role with the Royals.

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.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that three undisclosed teams are interested in trading for Pedro Ciriaco.

Ciriaco was designated for assignment on Monday. The 28-year-old is batting just .216/.293/.353 in 28 games this season, but the Red Sox should be able to find a taker.
Wed, Jun 12, 2013 03:16:00 PM

Red Sox designated INF Pedro Ciriaco for assignment.

The move opens a 25-man roster spot for the return of third baseman Will Middlebrooks. Ciriaco was out of minor league options, so the Red Sox had no choice but to try to pass him through waivers. The 27-year-old was batting just .216/.293/.353 in 28 games with Boston.

Pedro Ciriaco (back) could return to game action Sunday.

Ciriaco has been sidelined the last week due to back spasms. He'll likely need to start out on the minor league side before returning to Grapefruit League games.

Pedro Ciriaco was scratched from Friday's Grapefruit League lineup due to back spasms.

Deven Marrero will start in his place at shortstop. Consider Ciriaco day-to-day for now.

Pedro Ciriaco had a nice night in Friday's loss to the Orioles, going 2-for-4 with a double, run scored and an RBI.

His RBI double off Miguel Gonzalez in the third inning gave the Red Sox an early 1-0 lead, but it wouldn't last. He's done a very nice job in his first extended major league action, hitting .297/.316/.401 with two homers, 19 RBI and 15 stolen bases. He's likely done more than enough to play his way onto the Sox' 2013 roster.

Pedro Ciriaco had a go-ahead RBI double in the ninth inning to lead the Red Sox to a 3-2 win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Ciriaco finished the day 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base. The 26-year-old is hitting just .171 (11-for-64) over his last 18 games, so regression has hit him pretty hard, but he could still provide some speed to fantasy owners in a pinch. The Red Sox have won back-to-back games for the first time since August 26-27.
