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. Dec 25 - 10:47 AM

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.
Nov 17 - 10:01 AM

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.
Nov 5 - 8:39 AM

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.
Aug 1 - 9:28 AM

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.
Jul 28 - 3:11 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.
Jun 25 - 6:54 PM

Diamondbacks claimed C Jordan Pacheco off waivers from the Rockies.

Pacheco was designated for assignment by Colorado earlier this month after batting just .236/.300/.347 in 22 games as the Rockies' backup catcher. The 28-year-old can also play some corner infield, but he probably won't get a ton of playing time with Arizona.
Jun 12 - 1:33 PM

Rockies designated C Jordan Pacheco for assignment.

Pacheco was batting .236/.300/.347 in 22 games this season as the Rockies' primary backup catcher. Michael McKenry has been called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs to provide depth behind Wilin Rosario.
Jun 4 - 4:47 PM

Jordan Pacheco had a big day against the Marlins on Wednesday, finishing 3-for-4 with a run and an RBI.

Pacheco, part of an oddly-constructed Rockies roster, singled three times in his 2014 debut. Pacheco will back up at catcher behind Wilin Rosario. He shouldn't be counted on for much of anything offensively, limiting him to NL-only leagues.
Apr 2 - 11:02 PM

Jordan Pacheco went 1-for-3 with a solo home run against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Pacheco took Nate Jones deep for a solo homer in the fifth inning, his second of the spring. Pacheco dealt with left shoulder pain earlier in the spring, but has been swinging the bat well when he's had the chance. He'll back up Wilin Rosario behind the plate during the regular season and can play a host of other positions including first and third base.
Mar 25 - 6:21 PM

Jordan Pacheco went 2-for-2 with a double in Friday's loss to the Indians.

Pacheco also walked, reaching in all three of his plate appearances. He got the start behind the dish in this one, and reported no pain in his shoulder. As a reserve player, his fantasy value is limited to NL-only formats to begin the season.
Mar 21 - 11:11 PM

Jordan Pacheco (shoulder) started Tuesday's game against the Cubs in the designated hitter spot.

It's the first game he's started since the Rockies' Cactus League opener. Pacheco isn't cleared to play behind the plate yet, but that should happen soon. "The swing feels good, and it's nice to get out there and actually participate in a game," said Pacheco. "The shoulder feels good, no pain."
Mar 11 - 7:54 PM

Jordan Pacheco (shoulder) has been cleared to resume hitting but isn't ready to play in games yet.

Pacheco still has time to get ready for Opening Day but will obviously need to see some game action before long. "I don't want to go out there at 80 percent. I want to be 100 percent for my pitchers," Pacheco said.

An MRI taken this week on the left shoulder of Jordan Pacheco showed no structural damage.

Pacheco had to be scratched from a Cactus League game on Monday after experiencing discomfort in his shoulder during batting practice. But everything checked out fine on Tuesday and he should be back in action by the end of the week. Pacheco is trying to win a spot on the Rockies' Opening Day roster as a backup catcher and corner infielder.
