Moises Sierra went 1-for-4 with a two-run double as the Nationals topped the Rockies on Saturday afternoon.

Sierra was a late addition to the Nationals' lineup after Brian Goodwin was scratched and he paid huge dividends. His two-run double was part of a four-run uprising in the sixth inning that gave the Nationals a 5-2 advantage.

Nationals purchased the contract of OF Moises Sierra from Triple-A Syracuse.

Adam Eaton (ankle) has been placed on the 10-day disabled list in a corresponding 25-man roster move. Sierra owns an underwhelming .243/.296/.383 career batting line at the major league level and is doubtful to carry any meaningful fantasy value, even if he gets some starts in left field with Eaton out.

The Nationals are expected to call up outfielder Moises Sierra from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday.

The corresponding move is expected to send Adam Eaton (ankle) to the disabled list. Sierra, 29, inked a minor league deal with the Nats over the winter. He owns a .243/.296/.383 batting line over 449 plate appearances in the majors. This will be his first stint in the majors since 2014. The Nationals will need to add him to the 40-man roster.
Apr 10 - 11:53 PM

Moises Sierra whacked a three-run bomb in a loss to the Mets on Saturday.

Subbing in for Adam Eaton (who also homered earlier in the game), Sierra took reliever Hansel Robles deep with Ryan Raburn and Reid Brignac aboard. The veteran minor leaguer has hit very well this spring but doesn't have much chance to make the big league squad. He will hope an opportunity arises later this season.
Mar 17 - 6:57 PM

Moises Sierra went 2-for-2 and homered to give the Nationals their lone run Monday against the Braves.

Sierra is off to a 4-for-6 start in an extreme long shot bid to win a bench spot on the Nationals. The 29-year-old hasn't seen the majors since 2014, when he played in 83 games for the White Sox. He's likely Triple-A bound again, but maybe a team from Japan or Korea will want him if he continues to impress this spring.

Moises Sierra went 2-for-3 and scored a run in a loss to the Marlins on Saturday.

Both hits were singles. He scored on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Reid Brignac in the fifth inning. The 29-year-old Sierra is fresh off a very strong campaign in the Dominican Winter League. He spent last season with the Marlins' Triple-A team, sporting a .294 batting average with 11 homers, 68 RBI and 18 stolen bases in 123 games. He last played in the major leagues in 2014.
Feb 24 - 4:02 PM

Nationals signed OF Moises Sierra to a minor league contract.

Sierra has put on a show this offseason with the Gigantes del Cibao of the Dominican Winter League, but he last appeared in a major league game in 2014 and the 29-year-old outfielder will simply serve as Triple-A depth with Washington in 2018.

Marlins re-signed OF Moises Sierra to a minor league contract.

Sierra batted .336/.414/.519 with nine homers at Double-A Jacksonville this season, which is the kind of line you'd expect him to put up given that he turned 28 last month. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2014.

Marlins signed OF Moises Sierra to a minor league contract.

Sierra, 27, spent last season at Triple-A with the Royals, hitting .289/.350/.362 with three homers and 13 steals. He spent significant time in the majors from 2012-14 but hit only .243/.296/.383.

Royals sent OF Moises Sierra outright to Triple-A Omaha.

Sierra batted just .230/.265/.342 in 170 plate appearances this past season between the Blue Jays and White Sox. The Royals then picked him up off waivers in October, but he got designated for assignment last week to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for Alex Rios.

Royals designated OF Moises Sierra for assignment.

Kansas City claimed Sierra off waivers from the White Sox in October, but he had to be removed from the 40-man roster Tuesday to clear a spot for newly-signed outfielder Alex Rios. Sierra, 26, batted .230/.265/.342 in 170 plate appearances this past season between the Blue Jays and White Sox.

Royals claimed OF Moises Sierra off waivers from the White Sox.

The 26-year-old outfielder appeared in 96 games between the Blue Jays and White Sox in 2014, slashing .230/.265/.342 with a pair of homers and nine RBI. He'll look to compete for a reserve outfielder role with the Royals in 2015.
Fri, Oct 24, 2014 07:06:00 PM

White Sox activated OF Moises Sierra from the 15-day disabled list.

Sierra has batted .236/.265/.345 with two homers over 84 games between the Blue Jays and White Sox this season. He'll see some playing time versus lefties.
Sun, Aug 31, 2014 12:03:00 PM

Moises Sierra (oblique) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.

He should remain there for a few more days before being activated when rosters expand. Sierra has batted .236/.265/.345 with two homers over 84 games between the Blue Jays and White Sox this season.
