Top Tony Wolters News

  • Tony Wolters: Announces retirement

    Wolters announced his retirement from baseball via his personal Instagram page Sunday.

    Wolters spent the entire 2023 campaign at Triple-A St. Paul and has decided to call it a career ahead of the 2024 season. The 31-year-old spent parts of seven seasons in the majors and hit .235 with seven homers, 131 runs, 123 RBI and six steals.

  • Twins' Tony Wolters: Reassigned to minors

    The Twins reassigned Wolters to Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    It was a rough spring for Wolters as he recorded just one hit in 20 at-bats with seven strikeouts. He will likely spend the vast majority of the season in the minors, only to be called up if the Twins' depth behind the plate is ever tested.

  • Twins' Tony Wolters: Lands deal with Twins

    Wolters signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Thursday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    He's presumably been given a non-roster invitation to the major-league side of spring training. Wolters has seen bit of action in the big leagues across seven seasons, although not extensively since his days with the Rockies from 2016-20.

  • Dodgers' Tony Wolters: Back with Dodgers organization

    Wolters re-signed Tuesday with the Dodgers on a minor-league contract.

    Wolters was cut loose last week shortly after being removed from the Dodgers' 40-man roster, but after evaluating his options on the open market, he'll stick around in the organization. The 30-year-old will report to Triple-A Oklahoma City and should rank near the top of the list for a promotion if the Dodgers should lose fellow catchers Will Smith or Austin Barnes for any length of time.

  • Tony Wolters: Let go by Dodgers

    Wolters was released by the Dodgers on Friday.

    Wolters joined the Dodgers on a minor-league deal last August and had a brief stint with the big-league club last weekend, but he went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts prior to being designated for assignment. The 30-year-old will seek out opportunities elsewhere after going unclaimed on waivers.

  • Dodgers' Tony Wolters: Loses 40-man roster spot

    Wolters was designated for assignment Monday.

    Wolters filled in for fellow catcher Austin Barnes while he tended to a personal matter, but Barnes was added back to the roster Monday and Wolters was removed from it. If he clears waivers, he will have the option to remain with the Dodgers or seek another opportunity elsewhere.

  • Dodgers' Tony Wolters: Joins active roster

    Wolters' contract was selected by the Dodgers on Friday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Wolters will serve as the backup catcher behind Will Smith while Austin Barnes is on the bereavement list. Wolters has hit .236/.322/.315 in 405 major-league games, split across parts of six seasons.

  • Dodgers' Tony Wolters: Moves to MiLB camp

    The Dodgers reassigned Wolters to minor-league camp Monday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Los Angeles isn't expected to carry a third catcher on the Opening Day roster behind Will Smith and Austin Barnes, so Wolters never appeared especially likely to break camp with the big club. The 29-year-old re-signed with the Dodgers on a minor-league deal in December after he initially joined the organization last August following his release from the Cubs. Before being let go by the Cubs, Wolters received 30 plate appearances from the big club in 2021, logging a .125/.276/.125 slash line.

  • Dodgers' Tony Wolters: Joins Dodgers on minors deal

    Wolters signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers on Saturday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    Wolters had been in the Cubs' organization until he was released Monday. He appeared in 14 major-league games but struggled to a .125/.276/.125 slash line, dropping his career wRC+ at the big-league level to 57. He fared much better in 37 games for Triple-A Iowa, hitting .265/.385/.407, but he's unlikely to be anything more than an organizational depth option for his new club.

  • Cubs' Tony Wolters: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Wolters cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Iowa on Saturday.

    The 28-year-old was designated for assignment by the Cubs earlier in the week, but he'll remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. Wolters appeared in 14 games before being cast off the 40-man roster and went 3-for-25 with five walks, three runs and 12 strikeouts.

  • Cubs' Tony Wolters: Cast off 40-man roster

    The Cubs designated Wolters for assignment Wednesday, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Chicago will swap Wolters off the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster for P.J. Higgins, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Iowa in a corresponding move. Even though he saw few opportunities behind No. 1 catcher Willson Contreras, Wolters struggled in his limited action with the Cubs. He posted a .401 OPS and struck out in 12 of his 30 plate appearances (40 K%).

  • Cubs' Tony Wolters: Starting again Sunday

    Wolters is starting at catcher and batting eighth in Sunday's game against the Reds.

    Willson Contreras (thigh) remains out of the lineup for the second straight day, so Wolters will again pick up the start. The 28-year-old slashed .230/.280/.270 in 42 games for the Rockies last year and doesn't offer a ton of value offensively, though he should remain in the lineup for however long Contreras is sidelined.

  • Cubs' Tony Wolters: Contract selected by Cubs

    Wolters' contract was selected by the Cubs on Monday.

    Wolters was designated for assignment in mid-April and has been working at the Cubs' alternate training site after he went unclaimed on waivers. The 28-year-old will now rejoin the major-league roster as the backup catcher after Austin Romine (wrist) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday. Wolters has gone hitless with a walk and one strikeout in five plate appearances this season.

  • Cubs' Tony Wolters: Clears waivers

    Wolters has cleared waivers and was outrighted to the Cubs' alternate training site Sunday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    Wolters was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Wednesday, and he'll remain in the organization going forward. Wolters could return to the major-league roster as catching depth at some point this year.

  • Cubs' Tony Wolters: Cast off 40-man roster

    The Cubs designated Wolters for assignment Wednesday, Maddie Lee of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Wolters will surrender his spot on the 40-man and active rosters with Austin Romine (knee) returning from the 10-day injured list. While serving as the backup catcher behind Willson Contreras to begin the season, Wolters appeared in three games for the Cubs and went 0-for-4 with a walk.

  • Tony Wolters: Leaving Pittsburgh

    Wolters opted out of his minor-league contract with the Pirates on Tuesday and will become a free agent, Alex Stumpf of DK Pittsburgh Sports reports.

    Wolters' decision to opt out comes one day after Pirates manager Derek Shelton announced that Michael Perez will open the season as the backup to top catcher Jacob Stallings. Though Wolters struggled to make an impact with the bat even while playing at altitude in Colorado over the past five seasons, his skills as a game caller and pitch framer could allow him to surface on another MLB roster as a No. 2 catcher.

  • Cubs' Tony Wolters: Signs with Cubs

    Wolters signed a one-year contract with the Cubs on Wednesday.

    Wolters opted out of his minor-league contract with the Pirates on Tuesday after failing to secure a spot on the Opening Day roster, but he'll now serve as the backup catcher for the Cubs to begin the 2021 campaign. Austin Romine (knee) likely won't be ready for Opening Day but could compete for at-bats if Wolters struggles early in the season. However, Wolters will attempt to be productive in a depth role after hitting .230 with four doubles and eight RBI with the Rockies last season.
