Royals designated INF/OF Jimmy Paredes for assignment.

The move was made in order to add Jason Frasor to the 40-man roster. It's the second time since February that Paredes has been designated for assignment. He's hit .305/.332/.457 with 17 steals at Triple-A this season and could draw some interest on waivers.
Jul 16 - 12:29 PM

Royals optioned OF Jimmy Paredes to Triple-A Omaha.

The 25-year-old continues to bounce back and forth between the Royals and the minor leagues whenever they need an extra man on the bench. In nine games with the Royals he has gone 2-for-10 (.200) while swiping a pair of bases and scoring three runs.
May 31 - 9:56 AM

Royals recalled UTIL Jimmy Paredes from Triple-A Omaha.

Paredes was hitting .327/.357/.486 with three home runs, 17 RBI, and six stolen bases in 26 games this season at the Triple-A level. He'll see some action at third base but isn't a great fantasy bet in mixed leagues. The 25-year-old owns a .583 OPS in 122 games in the bigs.

Royals optioned OF Jimmy Paredes to Triple-A Omaha.

Paredes failed to record a hit in his two-week stay with the major league club. He was sent down Monday to clear a roster spot for outfielder Lorenzo Cain, who was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move.

Mar 24 - 11:25 AM

Royals claimed UTIL Jimmy Paredes off waivers from the Orioles.

The O's claimed Paredes off waivers from the Marlins last week, but he's now headed over to Royals camp. The 25-year-old utilityman hit just .192/.231/.248 in 135 plate appearances last season for the Astros and is doubtful to make Kansas City's Opening Day roster.
Feb 17 - 1:57 PM

Orioles claimed UTIL Jimmy Paredes off waivers from the Marlins.

The 24-year-old utilityman struggled with the Astros in 2013, slashing a mere .192/.231/.248 in 135 plate appearances, but has the ability to play multiple infield and outfield positions. He'll compete for a bench role with the O's.
Feb 15 - 3:19 PM

Marlins designated INF/OF Jimmy Paredes for assignment.

Paredes had been claimed off waivers by the Marlins earlier this offseason. He's a great athlete but has struggled to a .234/.274/.311 batting line across his first 396 big league plate appearances. It's possible the 25-year-old could again be scooped up on waivers.
