Jimmy Paredes went 2-for-4 with three RBI to help the Phillies beat the Brewers on Sunday.
Paredes slugged a three-run bomb off Brewers reliever Neil Ramirez in the Phillies' five-run fifth inning and then added a single in the seventh. He has an impressive .905 OPS in 30 plate appearances this season between the Blue Jays and Phillies and deserves reconsideration in mixed fantasy leagues now that he's in a position to get regular playing time. Paredes batted fifth on Sunday. He hit third in his Phillies debut Thursday. Jun 5 - 4:52 PM

Date:

Jimmy Paredes is starting in right field and batting third Thursday versus the Brewers.

It'll be his first start with the Phillies following Wednesday's trade from Toronto. Paredes had an .886 OPS in 17 plate appearances with the Blue Jays and he tallied 10 homers and 42 RBI in 104 games last season with the Orioles. There may be some sneaky fantasy value here, especially if he's going to bat regularly in the heart of the order.
Jun 2 - 3:25 PM

Phillies acquired INF/OF Jimmy Paredes from the Blue Jays for cash considerations.

Paredes was designated for assignment by Toronto earlier this week despite posting an .886 OPS over his first 17 plate appearances. He could see a decent amount of playing time in the Philadelphia outfield and is probably worth another look in deeper fantasy leagues.

Blue Jays designated INF/OF Jimmy Paredes for assignment.

Paredes had an .886 OPS through 17 plate appearances with the Blue Jays, who acquired him off waivers from the Orioles in mid-May. The 27-year-old will probably draw some interest on the waiver wire.
May 30 - 3:24 PM

Jimmy Paredes celebrated his first big-league start of the season with his first homer, a solo shot off Rays' starter Jake Odorizzi on Wednesday.

Paredes won't see regular playing time for the Blue Jays, but he showed surprising pop a year ago and Toronto is a very hitter-friendly ballpark. Still, it's going to be tough for him to carve out a long-term major-league role with Josh Donaldson entrenched at third base and Devon Travis on the mend.
May 18 - 11:13 PM

Blue Jays activated INF/DH Jimmy Paredes from the 15-day disabled list.

Paredes, who has been on a minor league rehab assignment with a wrist injury, was claimed off waivers from the Orioles on Monday. The 27-year-old faded after getting off to a hot start last season and ultimately finished with a .275/.310/.416 batting line. He'll serve as a utility player with his new team.

Blue Jays claimed DH Jimmy Paredes off waivers from the Orioles.

Paredes was in something of an odd situation. He had been on a rehab assignment for a wrist injury, but after the assignment ran out, the Orioles waived him on Sunday. Not out of a job for long, though, as the Blue Jays almost immediately scooped him up. That aforementioned wrist injury has prevented the 27-year-old from playing this season. In 363 at-bats last season, he slashed .275/.310/.416 with 10 homers and 42 RBI. With the Blue Jays already housing a stacked offense, his at-bats probably won't be coming fast and furious with his new squad.
May 16 - 1:41 PM

Rich Dubroff of CSNMidAtlantic.com reports that the Orioles have placed Jimmy Paredes (wrist) on waivers.

Paredes' rehab assignment has run out and the club has elected to expose him to waivers rather than activate him. He's still under a pre-arbitration salary and could receive some interest on waivers.
May 15 - 12:32 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he wants to see Jimmy Paredes (wrist) hit more during his rehab assignment.

Paredes has hit a dismal .192 (5-for-26) with nine strikeouts since beginning his rehab assignment with Double-A Bowie on April 26. The 27-year-old clearly has some rust to shake off. The Orioles are allowed to continue his rehab assignment until May 15. After that, he'll either be recalled or optioned to the minors.
May 5 - 5:48 PM

Jimmy Paredes (wrist) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday.

Paredes met up with the Orioles on Monday at Tropicana Field for a team workout. He should be added to the active roster by the end of the week if all goes well on the farm. The 27-year-old utilityman hit .275/.310/.416 with 10 home runs and 42 RBI in 104 games last season for Baltimore while appearing defensively at third base, second base, and both corner outfield spots.
Apr 25 - 2:29 PM

Jimmy Paredes (wrist) could begin a minor league rehab assignment on Monday.

He has been playing both corner outfield spots in extended spring training games. Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Tuesday that Paredes "will be ready quickly."
Apr 19 - 4:42 PM

Jimmy Paredes (wrist) took batting practice Tuesday at the Orioles' spring training complex.

A nice step in the right direction for Paredes, who landed on the disabled list just before Opening Day with a strained left wrist. He could be ready in early May if he's able to avoid setbacks in his rehab.
Apr 12 - 5:29 PM

Orioles placed DH Jimmy Paredes on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left wrist.

It's an injury he's been dealing with since the beginning of camp. He's expected to resume swinging a bat soon, but it's unclear how much longer he'll be out.
Apr 3 - 1:39 PM

Jimmy Paredes (wrist) will resume swinging a bat soon.

Paredes still felt soreness in his ailing left wrist while taking dry swings a week ago, but he's about ready to try it again. He's been limited to just five at-bats this spring and will begin the season on the disabled list.
Apr 1 - 9:52 AM

An exam on Jimmy Paredes' left wrist didn't show any new injury.

Paredes still felt some soreness in his left wrist on Tuesday while taking dry swings. The exam brought some good news, but he's expected to begin the season on the disabled list regardless.
