Royals outrighted INF Edinson Rincon to Triple-A Omaha.

Rincon was designated for assignment on Tuesday, but went unclaimed on waivers and will remain property of the Royals. He hit just .154/.170/.173 in 13 games at Double-A Arkansas this season.

Royals designated INF Edinson Rincon for assignment.

Kansas City claimed Rincon off waivers from the Padres in June and watched him slash an almost-non-existent .154/.170 /.173 in 13 games with Double-A Northwest Arkansas. Rincon is still only 23, but he's never produced beyond High-A.

Royals claimed INF Edinson Rincon off waivers from the Padres; optioned him to Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Rincon was cut from the Padres' 40-man roster last week. The 22-year-old owns a decent .285/.355/.422 career batting line in the minor leagues and could turn out to be a nice steal for Kansas City down the road.

Padres released INF Edinson Rincon.

Rincon was designated for assignment last week, and now he's out of the organization. He's recovering from a knee injury but is just 22 and sports a pretty decent .285/.355/.422 career batting line, so he shouldn't have trouble latching on somewhere.

Padres designated 3B Edinson Rincon for assignment.

The move clears room for Yasmani Grandal on the 40-man roster. Rincon, 22, is batting .291/.321/.413 with 10 home runs, 48 RBI and a .733 OPS in 134 games with Double-A San Antonio. There's a chance he'll pass through waivers unclaimed.

Padres recalled 3B Edinson Rincon from Double-A San Antonio.

Rincon, 21, batted .291/.321/.413 with 10 homers over 134 Double-A games this season. He'll have to start hitting for more power, as a move across the diamond is likely in his future.

Padres optioned 3B Edinson Rincon to Double-A San Antonio.

Rincon, 21, batted .329/.394/.497 with eight homers, 50 RBI and an .891 OPS this season, but was limited to just 74 games due to a hamate bone injury. A poor defender, his long-term position might be first base.

Edinson Rincon is batting 7-for-10 (.700) this spring with five doubles and five runs scored.

A liability in the field, the youngster nevertheless is making the most of his opportunity. He could be a very productive first baseman or designated hitter someday.

Padres purchased the contract of 3B Edinson Rincon from High-A Lake Elsinore.

Rincon, 21, batted .329/.394/.497 with eight homers, 50 RBI and an .891 OPS this season, but was limited to just 74 games due to a hamate bone injury. He is terrible defensively, so a move to first base is likely in his future.
