J.B. Shuck went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in a loss to the Brewers on Friday.
The Marlins got shut down by the less-than-stellar Jhoulys Chacin and the Brewers' middle-relief corps. Shuck was the only Miami player to have a good game. He's played well in limited action this year, batting .304/.360/.391 in 25 plate appearances. He may see his playing time increase if the Marlins' starters continue to flail away. Apr 21 - 1:28 AM

J.B. Shuck made a nice first impression in his Marlins' debut on Friday, going 4-for-4 with a pair of runs scored in a victory against the Pirates.

The veteran outfielder singled three times and tripled in the ballgame. He became just the fourth player in franchise history to have four hits in their debut, joining Jeff Conine, Carlos Delgado and Emilio Bonifacio. As impressive as it was though, he isn't going to hold any fantasy value anytime soon.

Marlins purchased the contract of OF J.B. Shuck from Triple-A New Orleans.

Shuck, 30, is a career .251/.299/.328 hitter over parts of five seasons in the majors. He'll provide depth at all three outfield spots.
Apr 13 - 2:57 PM

J.B. Shuck hit a two-run homer to help propel the Marlins to a 5-4 win over the Red Sox on Friday.

Before the Cameron Maybin signing, Shuck was about as good of choice as anyone to start in right field for the Marlins, though that says more about the quality of the alternatives than it does about Shuck. Now Shuck is competing for a spot on the bench. He was last seen in the majors hitting .205/.248/.299 in 224 at-bats for the White Sox in 2016.
Mar 9 - 4:22 PM

Marlins signed OF J.B. Shuck to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Shuck, 30, spent all of 2017 at Triple-A in the Twins' organization, batting .259/.325/.368 with four homers and four steals. He could wind up having a shot at a roster spot if the Marlins trade an outfielder or two this winter.

Twins reassigned OF J.B. Shuck to minor league camp.

Shuck was in Twins camp this spring on a non-guaranteed minor league contract after batting just .205/.248/.299 across 241 plate appearances last season with the White Sox. The 29-year-old will function as organizational outfield depth for Minnesota.

Twins signed OF J.B. Shuck to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The 29-year-old outfielder struggled in a part-time role for the White Sox in 2016, slashing just .205/.248/.299 with four homers and 14 RBI in 241 plate appearances. He'll compete for a reserve outfielder role on the Twins' Opening Day roster.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Twins are "working on a deal" to sign J.B. Shuck.

Shuck was outrighted by the White Sox at the beginning of November after hitting .205/.248/.299 with four homers and 14 RBI over the course of 241 plate appearances during the 2016 season. At best, he would represent a bench option for the Twins should they sign him.

White Sox sent OF J.B. Shuck outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

Shuck batted .205/.248/.299 across 241 plate appearances this season with the White Sox. The 29-year-old outfielder is now off the team's 40-man roster.
Thu, Nov 3, 2016 11:22:00 AM

Wed, Aug 3, 2016 11:37:00 AM

White Sox optioned OF J.B. Shuck to Triple-A Charlotte.

The White Sox will announce a corresponding roster move on Tuesday. Shuck is batting .218/.251/.324 with three homers and 13 RBI over 53 games with the White Sox this season. He should be back in September.

J.B. Shuck went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Astros on Saturday.

The outfielder took Astros starter Doug Fister deep for a solo shot in the fourth inning, his third homer of the season. He also had an RBI triple and a run scored in the eighth inning. Shuck has appeared in just 31 games this season but has gotten steady playing time in recent weeks, hitting .263 with a .686 OPS in June. The 29-year-old is batting .242/.263/.411 overall.

J.B. Shuck went 3-for-4 and knocked in the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth as the White Sox edged the Twins 6-5 on Thursday.

Rather than move Adam Eaton back to his old position, the White Sox have used Shuck as their starting center fielder since Austin Jackson went down. He started out really slow, but he's 8-for-18 with two homers during his current five-game hitting streak. Most likely, he'll cool off again soon enough.

White Sox recalled OF J.B. Shuck from Triple-A Charlotte.

Shuck will start in center field and bat fifth for the White Sox on Monday afternoon against Mets right-hander Matt Harvey. Shuck is a .262/.311/.332 career hitter in 860 plate appearances at the major league level and can go on being ignored in standard fantasy formats.
Mon, May 30, 2016 10:14:00 AM

White Sox optioned OF J.B. Shuck to Triple-A Charlotte.

The White Sox intend to add a pitcher to their bullpen on Tuesday. Shuck, who won a spot on the Opening Day roster, began the year 0-for-9 with a walk and two strikeouts over four games.
