Marlins acquired INF Pedro Ciriaco from the Rangers in exchange for LHP Eric Jokisch.

Jul 8 - 4:20 PM

Rangers reassigned INF Pedro Ciriaco to minor league camp.

Ciriaco was non-tendered by the Braves in December after batting .261/.275/.352 with one home run and four stolen bases in 151 plate appearances last season. The 30-year-old will attempt to win a bench job in the spring.

Braves non-tendered 3B Pedro Ciriaco.

Ciriaco, 30, batted .261/.275/.352 with one home run and four stolen bases in 151 plate appearances this past season for Atlanta. He will probably have to settle for a non-guaranteed minor league contract this winter. Mike Minor was also non-tendered by the Braves.

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.

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.

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.

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.
