Pedro Ciriaco went 2-for-3 with a homer and four RBI against the Rays on Wednesday.
The Braves didn't really want him playing much shortstop while Andrelton Simmons was out, so Ciriaco was making his first start since July 24 and just his second since the All-Star break. The homer was his first since 2013 and his fifth in 568 major league at-bats. Aug 12 - 11:38 PM

Pedro Ciriaco went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Filling in for Andrelton Simmons at shortstop for the second straight day, Ciriaco had a nice game against one of his former teams. He'll likely return to the pine this weekend.
Jun 17 - 10:44 PM

Braves recalled INF Pedro Ciriaco from Triple-A Gwinnett.

With Chris Johnson on the disabled list, Ciriaco will provide additional infield depth for the Braves. Through 20 games at Gwinnett, he was hitting just .234/.253/.286 with a homer, seven RBI and a 15/1 K/BB ratio in 77 at-bats.
May 2 - 2:21 PM

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

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.

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.
