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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Royals recalled OF Jimmy Paredes from Triple-A Omaha.

Paredes is with the club to provide additional depth while Jarrod Dyson is on bereavement leave. He remains irrelevant for fantasy purposes.

Royals optioned OF Jimmy Paredes to Triple-A Omaha.

Paredes was claimed off waivers from the Orioles in mid-February but wasn't able to secure a 25-man roster spot this spring in Royals camp. He will function as organizational outfield depth this year for Kansas City.

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.

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.
Sat, Feb 15, 2014 03:19:00 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.

Marlins claimed UTIL Jimmy Paredes off waivers from the Astros.

Paredes hit .192/.231/.248 in 135 plate appearances this year for Houston while appearing at third base, second base and in right field. The 24-year-old will serve as organizational depth for the Fish in 2014.
