Luis Sardinas may not be available off the bench Sunday because of lower back soreness.

The seriousness of the ailment is still being determined. Sardinas has two hits in 18 at-bats since the Orioles called him up earlier this month.
Apr 29 - 11:56 AM

Orioles purchased the contract of INF Luis Sardinas from Triple-A Norfolk.

Sardinas will give the Orioles another option at second base with Jonathan Schoop (oblique) sidelined. He's making the start there Tuesday against the Tigers. Sardinas is a .229/.278/.293 hitter in the majors and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Apr 17 - 4:05 PM

Orioles re-signed INF Luis Sardinas to a minor league contract.

Sardinas posted a decent .319/.348/.419 batting line across 83 games this past season with the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate in Norfolk, Virginia. The 24-year-old will act as organizational infield depth in 2018.

Orioles sent INF Luis Sardinas outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

The Orioles just claimed Sardinas off waivers on Wednesday, but they don't have room for him on their 25-man roster. However, he's cleared waivers this time and will remain in the organization.

Orioles claimed INF Luis Sardinas off waivers from the Padres.

Sardinas was designated for assignment by San Diego on Sunday after batting just .163/.226/.163 over 53 plate appearances in a utility role. The 24-year-old owns a .229/.278/.293 career batting line at the major league level.

Padres designated INF Luis Sardinas for assignment.

Sardinas lost out on the starting shortstop job this spring but stuck on in a utility role. He hit just .163/.226/.163 in 53 plate appearances with the Padres. There's a decent chance he passes through waivers unclaimed and continues to provide organizational depth.

Padres manager Andy Green said Friday that Luis Sardinas is now competing for a utility role on the club's Opening Day roster.

He entered spring training as the likely starting shortstop, but has been surpassed by veteran Erick Aybar. He entered Friday's game as a defensive replacement in the outfield where he'll continue to flash his versatility over the final week-plus of spring play.

Luis Sardinas went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

Sardinas hit an RBI single in the fourth inning to boost the Padres to a 2-0 advantage. Said advantage would not hold for the long, as the Dodgers would seven runs over the next three innings. For the season as a whole, the 23-year-old shortstop is hitting .265/.339/.398 with two homers and six RBI over 76 at-bats.

Luis Sardinas went 2-for-4 with a homer, a walk, four RBI, and two runs scored in Friday’s loss to the Marlins.

Sardinas just missed a grand slam in the fourth inning, but he settled for a bases-clearing double. He didn’t miss in his next at-bat, as he took Mike Dunn deep for a solo blast in the sixth inning. The 23-year-old was recently acquired from the Mariners and should get a chance to show what he can do at shortstop down the stretch, though we aren't expecting much in the way of fantasy value.

Padres recalled INF Luis Sardinas from Triple-A El Paso.

He'll replace the injured Jabari Blash (finger) on the active roster. Sardinas was just acquired from the Mariners last week and owns a lowly .218/.257/.268 batting line in the majors. He figures to serve in a utility infielder role.

Padres acquired INF Luis Sardinas from the Mariners for cash.

Sardinas was designated for assignment by Seattle last week after batting just .181/.203/.264 over 77 plate appearances. The 23-year-old utility infielder is a .218/.257/.268 career hitter in the major leagues, but he could very well open the 2017 season as the Padres' starting shortstop if they don't make an upgrade this winter.
Mon, Aug 15, 2016 12:05:00 PM

Mariners designated INF Luis Sardinas for assignment.

Sardinas had managed a paltry .181/.203/.264 triple-slash over 75 at-bats prior to being optioned down on Sunday. Now that he has been designated for assignment, he figures to pass through waivers unclaimed.
Wed, Aug 10, 2016 06:14:00 PM

Mariners optioned INF Luis Sardinas to Triple-A Tacoma.

Sardinas has hit only .181/.203/.264 across 72 at-bats in the majors this season. He'll return when rosters expand next month.

Mariners recalled INF Luis Sardinas from Triple-A Tacoma.

He's taking the roster spot of Mike Montgomery, who has been traded to the Cubs. Sardinas is hitting just .190/.215/.286 in the majors this season.
