Jimmy Paredes is at DH and batting second for the Orioles on Monday morning against the Red Sox.

Paredes is 5-for-10 with four runs scored in two games since being activated from the disabled list on Saturday. He's a nice value play in daily fantasy leagues.
Apr 20 - 9:31 AM

Orioles activated INF Jimmy Paredes from the 15-day disabled list.

Paredes is taking the place of Jonathan Schoop on the active roster who was placed on the disabled list on Saturday with a knee injury. He'll function in a utility role for the O's.
Apr 18 - 1:14 PM

Jimmy Paredes (back) will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Friday.

Paredes, who began the season on the DL with a lower back strain, will play with Double-A Bowie on Friday before moving to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday. The Orioles have a bit of a roster crunch at the moment, so they could keep him on his rehab stint for close to the maximum of 20 days.
Apr 16 - 5:18 PM

Jimmy Paredes (back) played seven innings at extended spring training on Tuesday.

Paredes will play in another extended spring game Wednesday. He should be cleared for a minor league rehab assignment by the end of this week and figures to be an option for the Orioles' active roster late next week. He was placed on the disabled list before Opening Day with a lower back strain.
Apr 14 - 4:28 PM

Jimmy Paredes (back) will play in an extended spring training game on Monday.

It will be his first game action since he suffered a lower back strain. Paredes will be cleared to begin a rehab assignment if things go well Monday, so it sounds like he could be activated relatively soon.
Apr 12 - 9:31 AM

Jimmy Paredes (back) is hoping to take some dry swings on Wednesday.

Paredes is on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain. Some dry swings would be a nice step, but it sounds like it will still be a little while before he's activated.
Apr 7 - 6:25 PM

Orioles placed INF/OF Jimmy Paredes on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

It's not clear how or when he suffered the injury or how long he'll be sidelined. Paredes batted .364/.368/.636 with a couple homers this spring.
Apr 3 - 3:58 PM

Jimmy Paredes doubled twice Sunday in the Orioles' 4-2 win over the Blue Jays.

It'll be easier for the Orioles to carry Paredes if either David Lough or J.J. Hardy starts off on the disabled list. The switch-hitter is batting .383/.388/.681 with 12 RBI in 47 at-bats. He's out of options, and since he can hit for average and play multiple positions, he'd probably be picked up quickly if the Orioles let him go.
Mar 29 - 4:30 PM

Jimmy Paredes drove in five runs with a homer and a double as the Orioles crushed the Phillies 16-4 on Monday.

The Orioles finished the day with five homers, a triple and six doubles among their 21 hits. Paredes is hitting .389 in 21 at-bats this spring after coming in at .286/.308/.444 in 63 major league at-bats last year. His versatility and his history of hitting for average as a switch-hitter, at least in the minors, could make him useful as a bench player. However, the Orioles probably aren't going to have room for him initially.
Mar 16 - 5:22 PM

Jimmy Paredes delivered a walk-off, two-RBI double in the bottom of the 11th inning in Friday's comeback win over the Yankees.

No one scored until two outs in the top of the 11th, when Chris Young took Brad Brach deep. The O's then responded with two runs in the bottom of the frame after Adam Warren loaded the bases. Paredes is hitting .381 with one homer and six RBI over seven contests since Baltimore picked him up.

Orioles recalled INF Jimmy Paredes from Triple-A Norfolk.

Paredes was batting .258/.286/.394 in 32 games at Norfolk. The 25-year-old infielder is not fantasy-relevant.
Thu, Aug 28, 2014 03:08:00 PM

Orioles acquired INF Jimmy Paredes from the Royals for cash; optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk.

Paredes was designated for assignment by Kansas City over the All-Star break. He has posted a decent .305/.332/.457 batting line with 17 stolen bases in 65 games this season at the Triple-A level, but the 25-year-old has never had much success in the majors.
Thu, Jul 24, 2014 01:18:00 PM

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.
Wed, Jul 16, 2014 12:29:00 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.
