Braves sent OF Zoilo Almonte outright to Triple-A Gwinnett.

Almonte had a chance this spring to earn lots of playing time in left field, but he hit just .245/.283/.265 over 21 games. He has the option to elect free agency. Jonny Gomes is in line to play regularly in left field.
Mar 31 - 6:40 PM

Zoilo Almonte went 3-for-5 with a couple of RBI on Monday, raising his spring average to .233.

He remained stuck on one extra-base hits through 43 at-bats. Almonte hasn't impressed this spring, and if he does make the Braves as a reserve, it'll probably be because he's out of options. However, he'd most likely clear waivers should the team choose to send him down, and if he doesn't, it wouldn't be much of a loss.
Mar 23 - 5:37 PM

Braves signed OF Zoilo Almonte to a one-year contract.

No word yet on the value, but it's a guaranteed major league deal. Almonte can play all around the outfield, though the 25-year-old owns a weak .211/.242/.282 career batting line in 149 plate appearances.

Yankees sent OF Zoilo Almonte outright to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Almonte passed through waivers unclaimed and will continue to function as organizational depth for the Yankees. The 25-year-old is hitting .261/.311/.437 with 18 homers and 69 RBI over 105 games at Triple-A this year.

Yankees designated OF Zoilo Almonte for assignment.

Almonte got a few different chances with the big league club in 2014 and did not shine. He did tally 18 homers in 105 games this year at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but that came with a .311 on-base percentage.
Tue, Sep 2, 2014 04:01:00 PM

Yankees optioned OF Zoilo Almonte to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Almonte has hit just .139/.139/.222 over his brief time in the majors this season. He'll be back in September.

Yankees recalled OF Zoilo Almonte from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Almonte, 25, is 4-for-25 (.160) with a homer over 10 games with the Yankees this season. He'll serve as an extra outfielder.
Mon, Jul 28, 2014 04:23:00 PM

Yankees optioned OF Zoilo Almonte to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

He was the odd-man out as the Yankees needed to recall an extra pitcher to bolster their bullpen depth for Sunday night's contest. He should return the next time the Yankees require an extra outfielder.
Sun, Jul 13, 2014 05:04:00 PM

Yankees recalled OF Zoilo Almonte from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Almonte will start in left field for the Yankees on Wednesday night with Brett Gardner nursing a lower abdominal strain. Almonte was 3-for-19 with nine strikeouts during a short stay with the Yankees earlier this season.
Wed, Jul 9, 2014 04:08:00 PM

Yankees optioned OF Zoilo Almonte to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

The move clears a spot for Scott Sizemore on the active roster. Almonte batted just .158 (3-for-19) with nine strikeouts during his time with the big club.
Tue, Jun 3, 2014 03:37:00 PM

Yankees recalled OF Zoilo Almonte from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Almonte will provide some insurance for the outfield with Carlos Beltran and Ichiro Suzuki both banged up. The 24-year-old was batting .273/.324/.470 with six home runs and 24 RBI through his first 24 games in Triple-A this season. He's unlikely to provide much fantasy value.
Tue, May 13, 2014 04:13:00 PM

Yankees optioned OF Zoilo Almonte and RHP Preston Claiborne to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Almonte hit a ridiculous .410/.452/.615 this spring, but there simply wasn't room for him on the roster. Claiborne struggled with a 14.29 ERA over seven Grapefruit League appearances.
Fri, Mar 28, 2014 08:38:00 AM

Zoilo Almonte went 2-for-4 with a double on Saturday to push his spring average back over .400.

Almonte is 13-for-32 with a homer, four doubles and just two strikeouts this spring. As well as he's played, the Yankees may want to think about stepping up their efforts to trade Ichiro Suzuki, making room for Almonte as a fourth outfielder. Then again, Almonte is just 24 and might benefit more from playing regularly in Triple-A.
Sat, Mar 22, 2014 05:37:00 PM

Zoilo Almonte (ankle) will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Trenton on Thursday.

Trenton is currently competing in the Eastern League playoffs. Almonte has been on the disabled list since July 19 with a badly-sprained left ankle. The 24-year-old outfielder hopes to return to New York's active roster by the end of the month.
