Braves signed C/INF Jordan Pacheco to a minor league contract.

Pacheco was released by the Reds a couple days ago but didn't need much time to find another gig. He'll provide organizational depth at multiple positions.

Reds released C/INF Jordan Pacheco.

Pacheco elected to become a free agent Wednesday after getting pushed off the Reds' 40-man roster for pitcher Michael Lorenzen. Pacheco had been recovering from a right shoulder injury and might have to prove his health before a new team makes an offer.

Reds placed C/INF Jordan Pacheco on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 3, with right shoulder tendinitis.

Pacheco will head to Triple-A Louisville to rehab the injury. Because his stint on the disabled list is backdated, he could be back with the Reds in the next few days if all goes well.

Reds purchased the contract of C/INF Jordan Pacheco from Triple-A Louisville.

Pacheco will add some versatility to the bench. His ability to play catch could particularly come in handy with the Reds likely to not overload Devin Mesoraco (hip) with playing time early on.

Reds signed C/INF Jordan Pacheco to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Pacheco hit .242/.333/.333 with two homers over 29 games for the D'Backs in 2015. He's merely a depth addition.

Diamondbacks designated C Jordan Pacheco for assignment.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Welington Castillo are now sharing time at catcher for the Diamondbacks, so Pacheco wasn't going to see many starts moving forward. Rookie third baseman Jake Lamb (foot) is also back in action. Pacheco is a versatile player and should draw interest from other teams on waivers.

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of INF/C Jordan Pacheco from Triple-A Reno.

He's officially on the Opening Day roster. Pacheco offers some versatility at the corner infield spots and can also function as a third catcher. The 29-year-old batted .272/.298/.321 in 47 games with Arizona last season.
Sun, Apr 5, 2015 12:00:00 AM

Diamondbacks re-signed INF/C Jordan Pacheco to a minor league contract.

The deal includes an invitation to spring training, where Pacheco should have a good shot at an Opening Day roster spot. The 28-year-old batted just .272/.298/.321 in 47 games this past season for Arizona, but he can play catcher and third base.

Jordan Pacheco has elected to become a free agent.

Pacheco was outrighted off the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster earlier this month and had the option of testing the open market, so he'll do that. The 28-year-old is a .281/.316/.374 career hitter at the major league level, but he has experience at a variety of positions defensively, including catcher and third base. He should have no trouble finding a minor league contract with a spring training invite.

Diamondbacks sent INF/C Jordan Pacheco outright to Triple-A Reno.

The move clears him from the 40-man roster. Pacheco was claimed off waivers from the Diamondbacks in June and batted .272/.298/.321 across 85 plate appearances.

Jordan Pacheco went hitless and committed a game-ending error Thursday as the Diamondbacks lost to the Nationals.

This never would have happened if Pacheco were in the minors where he belonged. He's hitting .212 with no homers, two RBI and one walk in 52 at-bats since being picked up by the Diamondbacks. His career WAR is -3.0 right now. The only active player with a worse mark is Greg Dobbs at -3.6, and Dobbs was let go by the Nationals last month.

Jordan Pacheco and Cliff Pennington (thumb) are expected to share time at third base for the Diamondbacks following the trade of Martin Prado.

Pennington is still on the disabled list but is expected back soon. Pacheco, though, is the one out of the two that could have a bit of fantasy value. He went 2-for-4 with an RBI in his first start at third base Thursday and hit .309/.341/.421 in his rookie season a couple years ago with the Rockies. Andy Marte hit a pinch-hit homer Thursday and could also get a shot at the hot corner, but for now it appears a Pacheco/Pennington timeshare is on the docket.

Diamondbacks activated C Jordan Pacheco from the 15-day disabled list.

Pacheco missed over a month with tendinitis in his right shoulder. He was 3-for-8 as a pinch-hitter for the Diamondbacks before the tendinitis put him on the shelf.
Mon, Jul 28, 2014 03:11:00 PM

Diamondbacks placed C Jordan Pacheco on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis.

Pacheco has served primarily in a backup role with the Diamondbacks since being claimed on June 12. Reliever Zeke Spruill was recalled to take his roster spot.
