Jimmy Paredes has signed a one-year contract with the Chiba Lotte Marines in Japan.
The deal is worth $1.2 million, according to the Japan Times. Paredes was outrighted off the Phillies' 40-man roster in October after struggling to the tune of a .222/.253/.367 batting line in 83 games at the major league level in 2016. He did have some success with the Orioles in 2015, but the 28-year-old utilityman wasn't going to find anything more than a non-guaranteed minor league contract in North America.

Phillies sent OF Jimmy Paredes outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Paredes had a nice 2015 but really struggled in 2016, batting only .222/.253/.367 for the Orioles and Phillies. He could be a non-tender candidate this winter.

Jimmy Paredes delivered a pinch-hit walk-off RBI single in the 13th inning on Friday to lead the Phillies to a 4-3 victory over the Marlins.

The winning rally was set up after Peter Bourjos led off the bottom of the 13th with a single against A.J. Ramos. Cameron Rupp struck out for the first out of the inning, but Odubel Herrera followed with a single to center which moved Peter Bourjos to third. The Marlins elected to intentionally walk Freddy Galvis to load the bases, but Paredes ripped a single into the outfield to end a long night in Philadelphia. Parades briefly put himself on the fantasy radar last season with the Orioles, but he’s batting just .228/.258/.386 with five homers and 18 RBI over 76 games as a utility player this year.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rich Dubroff of 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.
Sun, May 15, 2016 12:32:00 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.

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.

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."

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.
