Player Outlook
The Cardinals picked up Richard Palacios from the Guardians in a trade in June and promoted him to the majors in August. The 26-year-old proved to be a spark down the stretch of St. Louis' lost season, collecting an .823 OPS with six home runs and a couple stolen bases in 102 plate appearances. The elite contact ability Palacios showed in the minors carried over, as well, as he struck out at just a 10.8 percent clip. Palacios also drew walks at a 15.7 percent rate last season at the Triple-A level, but that part didn't translate in the majors (5.9 percent). The 14 homers Palacios hit between the majors and minors in 2023 nearly doubled his pro total coming into the year, and his poor quality of contact at both levels suggests it's unlikely to be repeated. Palacios looks like a viable bench piece, though, with his contact skills and ability to play second base and all three outfield spots.

  • Rays' Richie Palacios: Gets day off vs. lefty

    Palacios is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels. Palacios will hit the bench for the third time in four days, with all three of his absences coming against left-handed pitchers. He continues to hold down a strong-side platoon role in the corner outfield, but he'll give way to Amed Rosario on Wednesday.

  • Rays' Richie Palacios: Productive in Tuesday's win

    Palacios went 2-for-6 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI in Tuesday's 7-6 extra-innings win over the Angels. The 26-year-old outfielder produced his third multi-hit performance in his last four starts, a stretch in which Palacios is batting .368 (7-for-19). Despite the surge, time is ticking on his stint as a regular part of the Tampa Bay lineup, as Josh Lowe (oblique) is set to begin a rehab assignment later this week. Through 44 plate appearances this season, Palacios is slashing .270/.386/.378 with one homer, one steal, two RBI and six runs.

  • Rays' Richie Palacios: Sits against lefty

    Palacios is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The lefty-hitting Palacios rapped out five base hits while starting in right field in each of the past three games, but he'll take a seat for the series finale while southpaw Blake Snell toes the rubber for San Francisco. Amed Rosario checks in for Palacios in right field.

  • Rays' Richie Palacios: Settling into key role

    Palacios went 3-for-4 Saturday against the Giants. Palacios has been in a large-side platoon role to begin the season, primarily batting fifth in the Rays' order. However, with the team's top three lefty hitters each sidelined -- Josh Lowe (oblique), Brandon Lowe (oblique) and Jonathan Aranda (finger) -- Palacios has batted third in consecutive games. Palacios will still sit regularly against lefties, but he should be in a good position to rack up counting stats against right-handed pitching.

  • Rays' Richie Palacios: Homers, swipes bag

    Palacios went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and a stolen base in Monday's loss to Texas. Palacios' solo shot in the seventh inning was his first hit as a Ray. He also stole his first bag of the season. The 26-year-old is now 1-for-8 on the year but has already drawn four walks. Palacios should continue to primarily see time against righties.

  • Rays' Richie Palacios: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Palacios is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays. Palacios hit the bench Saturday with Toronto starting a southpaw, and he'll sit again Sunday against right-hander Kevin Gausman. Amed Rosario will receive another start in right field.

  • Rays' Richie Palacios: In right field Opening Day

    Palacios will start in right field and bat sixth in Thursday's season opener versus the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The Rays' outfield is a bit banged up, and Palacios will get the first crack in right field in place of Josh Lowe (oblique). Palacios was acquired via trade from the Cardinals over the offseason.

  • Rays' Richie Palacios: Opportunity knocks

    Between Josh Lowe's oblique injury and Jonny DeLuca's right-hand fracture, Palacios has a good chance to make the Opening Day roster and earn frequent playing time, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. Palacios has three homers this spring and has been playing all three outfield positions. Both he and Harold Ramirez might get more reps than anticipated early on this season. "He's done a good job. He gives very competitive, good at-bats. He's driven the ball really, really well," manager Kevin Cash said. "Continuing to work on the defense in the outfield, be the best outfielder he can be [and that] will help out his opportunities."

  • Rays' Richie Palacios: Expected to serve versatile role

    Palacios will see the majority of his playing time in the outfield but has also been working out at second base this spring, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports. The Rays acquired Palacios in a trade with the Cardinals this winter. Across two big-league seasons, he's played nearly exclusively in the outfield, though in typical fashion the Rays want to create as much versatility on their roster as possible. Palacios' fit at second base in particular is curious, as he hits left-handed, as does projected primary starter Brandon Lowe.

  • Rays' Richie Palacios: Traded to Rays

    The Cardinals traded Palacios to the Rays on Friday in exchange for Andrew Kittredge, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Shortly after sending Luke Raley to the Mariners, the Rays will replenish their outfield depth by acquiring Palacios. The 26-year-old Palacios showed promise late in the season with St. Louis, slashing .258/.307/.516 with six homers and 16 RBI across 102 plate appearances. With Randy Arozarena, Jose Siri and Josh Lowe already in Tampa Bay's outfield, Palacios will likely begin the season on the Rays' bench.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Goes yard in loss

    Palacios went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Brewers. Palacios has five homers this season, four of which have come over his last six games. The downside is those long balls are his only hits in his last nine contests. The 26-year-old outfielder is hitting .268 with 10 RBI, five runs scored, two doubles and a stolen base over 61 plate appearances in the majors this year.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Captures strong-side platoon role

    Palacios will start in left field and bat sixth in Monday's game against the Brewers. Palacios will stick in the lineup for the Cardinals' fourth consecutive matchup with a right-handed starting pitcher. Since receiving a call-up from Triple-A Memphis on Aug. 17, Palacios has slashed .275/.302/.549 with four home runs and a stolen base across 54 plate appearances. He should continue to occupy a strong-side platoon role in the corner outfield after the Cardinals recently placed Tyler O'Neill (foot) on the 10-day injured list.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Getting start in left field

    Palacios is starting in left field and batting sixth in Friday's contest against the Phillies, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Palacios homered twice off the bench Tuesday in Baltimore and went deep again during a start Wednesday, so he'll get a second straight start Friday. Tyler O'Neill is getting a breather.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Provides only run in win

    Palacios went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Orioles. Palacios has homered three times over his last two games, so he may be disappointed that the Cardinals are done with Baltimore for the year. While he's primarily played in the outfield this season, he got the start and played the full game at second base Wednesday. With an outfield of Tyler O'Neill, Lars Nootbaar and Jordan Walker, Palacios would have a tough time carving out a role there, but there's also a hurdle at the keystone in Tommy Edman. Palacios is slashing .311/.340/.622 with four homers, nine RBI, four runs scored and a stolen base over 48 plate appearances -- manager Oliver Marmol may have to find room for the 26-year-old if he keeps hitting well.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Goes deep twice off bench

    Palacios went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Baltimore. Entering in the second inning as a replacement for the injured Nolan Gorman, Palacios took advantage of the opportunity, blasting a pair of solo home runs. After going deep just once in his first 150 career at-bats, the 26-year-old outfielder launched homers in back-to-back plate appearances Tuesday. In limited action since getting promoted from the minors Aug. 16, Palacios has posted a slash line of .317/.349/.585 with two doubles, three home runs, eight RBI and one steal across 16 games.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Batting leadoff Tuesday

    Palacios is starting in center field and batting leadoff Tuesday against the Padres. This is the first career leadoff opportunity for Palacios, who has posted an impressive .304/.333/.522 slash line in 24 plate appearances since the Cardinals called him up from Triple-A Memphis on Aug. 17. Tommy Edman is getting the day off.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Recalled from Memphis

    St. Louis recalled Palacios from Triple-A Memphis on Thursday. Palacios was acquired from the Guardians two months ago in exchange for cash considerations and had since registered an .876 OPS with five homers and three steals in 40 games with Memphis. The 25-year-old will step in as the Cardinals' fourth outfielder with Dylan Carlson (ankle/oblique) needing at least a couple more weeks of rest and rehab.

  • Cardinals' Richie Palacios: Traded to St. Louis

    Palacios was traded to the Cardinals from the Guardians in exchange for cash considerations Friday. Palacios was designated for assignment by the Guardians on Sunday. Following the trade, the outfielder will report to Triple-A Memphis, while he replaces Tyler O'Neill (back) on the 40-man roster after O'Neill was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday. Palacios has yet to appear in a major-league contest this season, posting a .217 average with three homers, 28 RBI, 41 runs and six stolen bases over 217 at-bats in 56 games with Triple-A Columbus.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Booted off 40-man roster

    Cleveland designated Palacios for assignment Sunday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. Palacios is now off the 40-man roster, with Cleveland clearing a spot for Cody Morris (lat) in his return from the 60-day injured list. In 269 plate appearances with Triple-A Columbus this season, Palacios has hit .217 with a .669 OPS. The 26-year-old outfielder will now be exposed to the waiver wire but will stick around in the Guardians organization if he isn't claimed or dealt to another team.

  • Guardians' Richie Palacios: Returns to minors

    The Guardians optioned Palacios to Triple-A Columbus on Wednesday. Cleveland will swap Palacios off the 28-man active roster for another rookie outfielder in Will Brennan, whose contract was selected from Triple-A. Palacios had started just once in the Guardians' last 12 games, so he'll get the chance to pick up regular at-bats at Columbus before the International League season wraps up.
