Matt Pagnozzi has elected free agency.

The 30-year-old backstop appeared in nine games with the Astros in 2013, slashing a meager .143/.182/.143 in 21 at-bats. He's likely to latch on as minor league catching depth with another organization.

Astros sent C Matt Pagnozzi outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Pagnozzi finished the season with the Astros and will likely be remembered most for spiking a baseball to the backstop. He batted .143/.182/.143 in 21 at-bats and can elect free agency.

Astros acquired C Matt Pagnozzi from the Braves in exchange for cash considerations.

Jason Castro's strained knee forced Houston's hand. Already playing without concussed backup catchers Carlos Corporan and Max Stassi, the Astros' only other healthy catcher is 31-year-old rookie Cody Clark. Pagnozzi is en route to Houston and will be active for Tuesday's game.

Braves signed C Matt Pagnozzi to a minor league contract.

Pagnozzi hit just .224/.324/.359 in 78 games this year for the Indians' Triple-A affiliate in Columbus, Ohio. He will be low on the Braves' organizational depth chart.

Indians signed C Matt Pagnozzi to a minor league contract.

Pagnozzi has hit pretty well during his brief stints in the majors but has a .220 batting average over parts of nine seasons in the minors. He's solid defensively, though, and will offer the Tribe organizational depth.

Pirates sent C Matt Pagnozzi outright to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Pagnozzi was claimed off waivers by the Pirates in September, but they've now chosen Brian Jeroloman over him for a spot on the 40-man roster. The 29-year-old has no bat but is a solid defensive backstop.

Pirates claimed C Matt Pagnozzi off waivers from the Rockies.

Pagnozzi was designated for assignment by the Rockies over the weekend. The 28-year-old backstop has enjoyed success during his brief stints in the major leagues, but has a .220 batting average over parts of nine seasons in the minors.
Wed, Sep 14, 2011 04:00:00 PM

Rockies designated C Matt Pagnozzi for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Thomas Field. Pagnozzi will almost surely clear waivers.

Rockies optioned C Matt Pagnozzi to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Pagnozzi batted .286 (6-for-21) with two RBI in nearly a month with the big club. Eliezer Alfonzo will now serve as the primary backup to Chris Iannetta.

Rockies purchased the contract of C Matt Pagnozzi from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He'll serve as the primary backup to Chris Iannetta now that Jose Morales is out with a broken thumb. Pagnozzi, 28, was batting .275/.340/.418 with one home run and 16 RBI over his first 102 plate appearances at the minor league level this season. He's unlikely to have any fantasy value.
Fri, Jun 17, 2011 05:13:00 PM

Rockies signed C Matt Pagnozzi to a minor league contract.

Pagnozzi, 28, has a .333/.391/.452 batting line with one home run and 10 RBI over 49 major league plate appearances, all with the Cardinals. The Rockies intend to add another catcher this offseason, so Pagnozzi would only likely crack the major league roster in the event of an injury or a trade.

Matt Pagnozzi is hoping to replace Jason LaRue as the Cardinals' primary backup catcher for the 2011 season.

LaRue was forced into retirement this year due to a concussion suffered in the Cardinals' on-field brawl with the Reds in early August. Pagnozzi hasn't exactly lit up minor league pitching, but he is strong behind the plate and St. Louis doesn't require an overly active backup. These last several regular season games will act as a kind of audition for the 27-year-old Pagnozzi.
Tue, Sep 28, 2010 02:24:00 PM

Cardinals recalled C Matt Pagnozzi from Triple-A Memphis.

Pagnozzi was batting .242/.338/.309 with one home run and 21 RBI over 207 at-bats with Triple-A Memphis this season. He'll likely function as the third catcher for Cards manager Tony La Russa in September.
