Marlins' Jorge Alfaro: Back with Marlins on minors deal
Alfaro signed a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Tuesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
It's a return to South Beach for Alfaro, who played for the Marlins from 2019-21. The 30-year-old catcher has seen brief action in the majors this season with the Red Sox and Rockies but has spent most of the year at the Triple-A level. That's where he'll report this week, joining the Marlins' affiliate in Jacksonville.... See More ... See Less
Jorge Alfaro: Hits open market
Alfaro cleared waivers and elected free agency Saturday after being designated for assignment by the Red Sox, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republicanreports.
Alfaro appeared in eight games during his brief time with Boston and went 2-for-17 in 20 plate appearances. The veteran backstop will look to latch on elsewhere, likely via a minor-league deal.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Jorge Alfaro: Moves off 40-man roster
The Red Sox designated Alfaro for assignment Tuesday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.
Alfaro spent just under a month on the Red Sox's 40-man roster and 26-man active roster, serving as the No. 2 option at catcher while Reese McGuire (oblique) was on the shelf. As anticipated, Alfaro finds himself as the odd man out with McGuire returning from the IL on Tuesday to reclaim his role as Connor Wong's top backup. Alfaro saw limited work behind Wong while he was with Boston, going 2-for-17 with two walks against three strikeouts. The 30-year-old will now be exposed to waivers and could hold some appeal for an organization looking to upgrade its catching depth.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Jorge Alfaro: Returns to Boston on MLB deal
Alfaro signed a one-year contract with the Red Sox on Thursday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Alfaro caught on with the Rockies after opting out of his minor-league deal with the Red Sox last month, but he's now back with Boston after Colorado cut him loose earlier this week. The 30-year-old will back up Connor Wong at catcher while Reese McGuire (oblique) is sidelined and might also see a little action in the outfield and designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jorge Alfaro: Outrighted to Triple-A
Colorado outrighted Alfaro to Triple-A Albuquerque on Wednesday.
Alfaro passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment by the Rockies last Friday. He can elect to become a free agent, but it seems there has been no decision on that front just yet. The 30-year-old catcher and corner outfielder slashed .161/.188/.387 in his 32 plate appearances with Colorado.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jorge Alfaro: Designated for assignment
Alfaro was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Friday.
Alfaro slashed just .161/.188/.387 in 10 games (32 plate appearances) during his two-week stay with Colorado and now heads into DFA limbo. Austin Wynns remains the backup to starting catcher Elias Diaz.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jorge Alfaro: Mashes three-run blast
Alfaro went 1-for-5 with a three-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.
Alfaro came up big late in the game with a three-run blast to center field to bring the Rockies within striking distance. The 30-year-old went hitless in his first three games with the Rockies but has tallied three extra-base hits over his last eight at-bats. Alfaro will get the occasional start behind the dish, but the Rockies seemingly view him as their primary option at designated hitter for the time being while Charlie Blackmon (hand) and Kris Bryant (heel) are on the shelf. He's slashing .158/.200/.421 with four RBI, a run scored and a 0:9 BB:K over 20 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jorge Alfaro: Selected to MLB roster
Colorado selected Alfaro's contract from Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday.
Brian Serven has been optioned out and Alfaro will take over a share of the backup role behind primary catcher Elias Diaz. Alfaro, 30, has slashed .323/.366/.524 with seven home runs and five stolen bases in 46 games this year between the Triple-A affiliates of the Red Sox and Rockies. Beyond backup catching duties, he can also play some corner outfield and cycle in at designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jorge Alfaro: Pens MiLB deal with Rox
Alfaro signed a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Saturday.
Alfaro was released by the Red Sox last Saturday, and the veteran backstop finds a new club a week later. The backstop last played in the majors with the Padres in 2022, and he hit .246/.285/.383 with seven homers over 82 games and 256 at-bats. It's possible Alfaro could spend time with the Rockies, but they would need to add him to the 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Jorge Alfaro: Officially released by BoSox
Alfaro was released by the Red Sox on Saturday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Alfaro exercised the opt-out clause in his minor-league contract earlier this week, and the Sox have now officially granted him his release. The 29-year-old catcher and corner outfielder should find interest on the open market after posting a shiny .320/.367/.520 batting line across 191 plate appearances with Triple-A Worcester....

Red Sox's Jorge Alfaro: Opts out of minors deal
Alfaro has opted out of his minor-league contract with the Red Sox, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
The Red Sox now have 48 hours to either add him to the roster or release him. Alfaro has batted .320/.366/.520 with six home runs and four stolen bases across 43 games with Triple-A Worcester, so there could be some interest from other clubs if Boston cuts him loose.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Jorge Alfaro: Reporting to minors
The Red Sox reassigned Alfaro to minor-league camp Monday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Though Alfaro possesses more of a track record at the big-league level than either Reese McGuire or Connor Wong, Boston saw both backstops as more ideal options behind the dish than the 29-year-old, who was attending camp as a non-roster invitee. Alfaro's minor-league deal includes an opt-out clause that allowed him to seek out an MLB roster spot elsewhere, but with no better opportunity presenting itself when he canvassed the market, he'll stick around in the Boston organization for now. Expect Alfaro to open the campaign at Triple-A Worcester.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Jorge Alfaro: Has March 25 upward mobility clause
Alfaro has a March 25 upward mobility clause in his minor-league contract with the Red Sox which would allow him to sign a major-league deal elsewhere if Boston doesn't plan to have him on the Opening Day roster, Chris Cotillo of the Springfield Republican reports.
The Red Sox seem likely to keep Alfaro around, whether that's as Reese McGuire's backup or as a third catcher along with McGuire and Connor Wong. Alfaro can also play first base and the corner outfield spots in a pinch, which helps his chances of sticking on the roster.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Jorge Alfaro: Reports to camp
Alfaro arrived to spring training Sunday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.
Alfaro was delayed by visa issues that prevented him from reporting last Wednesday. He appeared in 82 games for the Padres in 2022, posting a .668 OPS with seven home runs and 40 RBI. The 29-year-old backstop will compete with Reese McGuire and Connor Wong for one of two spots on the Opening Day roster. His minor-league deal includes opt-outs June 1 and July 1.... See More ...

Red Sox's Jorge Alfaro: Delayed by visa issues
Alfaro has yet to report to spring training due to visa issues, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
It's not ideal since Alfaro is competing for a roster spot, but he should be in camp before long. The 29-year-old inked a minor-league deal with the Red Sox in January after slashing .246/.285/.383 across 274 plate appearances for the Padres last season. He's competing with Reese McGuire and Connor Wong for at-bats at catcher.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Jorge Alfaro: Signs with Boston
Alfaro signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Alfaro split time behind the plate with Austin Nola in San Diego last season, slashing .246/.285/.383 across 274 plate appearances. Both of Boston's major-league catchers haven't shown to be anything special at the plate either, so there's a chance Alfaro wins a spot this spring.... See More ... See Less
Jorge Alfaro: Non-tendered by San Diego
The Padres declined to tender Alfaro a contract for 2023, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
As Cassavell notes, Alfaro had five walk-off hits in 2022, so while his time with the Padres was brief, it was memorable. Overall, Alfaro slashed .246/.285/.383 during the regular season -- his third straight season with an OPS south of .670. He's a good athlete for the catcher position, but the strikeouts have been too much for Alfaro to overcome in recent years.... See More ... See Less
