Top Donny Sands News

  • Donny Sands: Released by San Francisco

    The Giants released Sands on Sunday.

    Sands was cut loose after slashing just .176/.250/.196 in 13 games with Triple-A Sacramento. The 28-year-old saw some brief action in the majors in 2022 with the Phillies but has bounced around in the minors with a few organizations since then.

  • Giants' Donny Sands: Latches on with San Francisco

    Sands signed a minor-league contract with the Giants.

    Sands was released by Detroit on March 26, but he's since found a new home in San Francisco. He made his debut for Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday, going 0-for-5 with an RBI and three strikeouts.

  • Donny Sands: Let go by Detroit

    The Tigers released Sands on Tuesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    The 27-year-old was designated for assignment by the Tigers in December and has now been fully let go by the organization. Sands played in 89 games at Triple-A Toledo last season and had a .225/.318/.353 slash line.

  • Tigers' Donny Sands: Outrighted to Toledo

    Sands cleared waivers Friday and was sent outright to Triple-A Toledo.

    Sands spent the vast majority of 2023 at Triple-A Toledo, and he'll now do so without the benefit of a 40-man roster spot. Should Jake Rogers or Carson Kelly struggle with the Tigers, Sands may reappear in Detroit, but for now he'll fill in as organizational depth.

  • Tigers' Donny Sands: DFA'd by Tigers

    The Tigers designated Sands for assignment Friday.

    Dropping Sands from the 40-man roster clears room for Shelby Miller, who agreed to a one-year deal with Detroit on Friday. Sands spent most of last season at Triple-A Toledo, where he slashed .225/.318/.353 with 36 RBI across 371 plate appearances.

  • Tigers' Donny Sands: Optioned to Toledo

    The Tigers optioned Sands to Triple-A Toledo on Friday, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Sands slashed just .214/.241/.250 over 29 plate appearances this spring, so he will return to Triple-A and attempt to right himself in the minors. If he can replicate his .841 OPS in Triple-A from last season, he has a decent shot at returning to the big leagues at some point in 2023.

  • Tigers' Donny Sands: Acquired by Tigers

    Sands, Nick Maton and Matt Vierling were traded from the Phillies to the Tigers on Saturday in exchange for Gregory Soto and Kody Clemens, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

    Sands made his big-league debut at age 26 last season but didn't stick around long enough to make an impression, going 0-for-3 with a walk. He hit a strong .308/.413/.428 in 57 Triple-A games, suggesting he has some potential at the plate, especially considering the low offensive bar at catcher. He'll compete with Jake Rogers and Andrew Knapp in spring training to earn the backup catcher job behind Eric Haase.

  • Phillies' Donny Sands: Sent to Triple-A

    Sands was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.

  • Phillies' Donny Sands: Called up Triple-A

    Sands was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

    The 26-year-old catcher will make his first appearance in the big leagues as rosters expand to 28 players in September. He's slashed .308/.413/.428 in Triple-A this season and figures to serve as depth behind the plate for Philadelphia.

  • Phillies' Donny Sands: Sent to Triple-A

    The Phillies optioned Sands to minor-league camp Thursday.

    Philadelphia will have two extra active roster spots available through May 1 due to the compressed spring training, but Sands won't stick around as the team's No. 3 catcher behind J.T. Realmuto and Garrett Stubbs. Rather than Sands, Rafael Marchan looks to be the next man up at catcher if something should happen to the top two options on the organizational depth chart.
