Player Outlook
Danny Mendick has seen major-league action in each of the past five years, though he's played more than 35 games in a season just once. He's largely been ineffective offensively with a .652 OPS in 515 big-league plate appearances but provides plenty of versatility defensively. Mendick rejoined the White Sox on a minor-league deal for 2024 and will likely be limited to a utility role if he receives a look in the majors.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Can't secure roster spot

    Mendick will not make the White Sox's Opening Day roster, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Mendick was in camp on a minor-league deal and has maintained just a .614 OPS with three extra-base hits across 41 at-bats. The team will instead opt to keep Braden Shewmake on the roster, who should fill a utility role along the infield.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Enjoys big offensive effort Monday

    Mendick went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and scored an additional run in an 11-2 rout of the Cubs on Monday. Pete Alonso powered the Mets with two homers early, and Mendick provided the icing on the cake with a three-run shot in the seventh inning that made the score 10-2. The long ball was the first of the campaign for Mendick and just his 11th in 440 career at-bats. The 29-year-old started at third base Monday in the wake of Brett Baty being sent down to the minors, and Mendick could operate in the short side of a platoon with Mark Vientos at the hot corner moving forward.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Gets start at third

    Mendick will start at third base and bat seventh in Monday's game against the Cubs. With Brett Baty optioned to Triple-A on Monday and Luis Guillorme still on the injured list, Mendick will find more playing time. The 29-year-old has been great against left-handed pitching, slashing .360/.385/.560 in 26 plate appearances. He will face Cubs' left hander Drew Smyly. Mark Vientos should start at third base against righties while getting nods at designated hitter against southpaws.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Recalled from Syracuse

    The Mets recalled Mendick from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday. Mendick has failed to record a hit or even a walk in seven plate appearances this season at the major-league level, but the Mets need infield depth with Luis Guillorme (calf) landing on the 10-day injured list Saturday.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Sent back to Triple-A

    The Mets optioned Mendick to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Mendick went 0-for-7 with zero walks and one strikeout during his 10-day stay in the majors. DJ Stewart will take his place on New York's bench.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Promoted to majors

    Mendick was recalled by the Mets on Saturday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. The Mets are in need of infield depth after trading Eduardo Escobar to the Angels on Friday. Mendick fills that role reasonably well, as he's capable of playing across most of the infield. In 317 plate appearances with Triple-A Syracuse this season, he's maintained a .264/.356/.401 line. Mendick's stay in the majors may be short-lived, as Mark Vientos is a candidate to be recalled as soon as he is eligible to return to the majors.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Sent to Triple-A

    Mendick was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday. Mendick had a .619 slash line in 10 games during spring training and was unable to earn a spot on New York's Opening Day roster. The 29-year-old will serve as organizational depth at Triple-A Syracuse while Tim Locastro and Darin Ruf continue to battle for the final roster spot.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Cleared for spring debut

    Mendick (knee) will start at second base and bat third Wednesday in the Mets' exhibition game against the Nicaraguan team, Anthony DiComo of reports. Mendick will be making his spring debut in what marks his first competitive action since he tore the ACL in his right knee and fractured the fibula in his right leg while playing for the White Sox in a June 22, 2022 game. Before suffering the season-ending injury, Mendick was productive in a utility infield role for Chicago, slashing .289/.343/.443 across 106 plate appearances. After joining the Mets on a one-year, $1 million deal over the winter, Mendick should have a good chance of securing a spot on the Opening Day roster and potentially earning a short-side platoon role at second or third base.

  • Mets' Danny Mendick: Nearing spring debut

    Mendick (knee) is expected to begin playing in Grapefruit League games within the next week, Anthony DiComo of reports. Mendick has been eased into action this spring after he suffered both a fractured fibula and a torn ACL in his right leg last June. The plan calls for him to get a lot of action at a lot of different spots once Mets camp thins out for the World Baseball Classic. The 29-year-old super-utilityman signed a one-year, $1 million contract with New York in December.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Transferred to 60-day IL

    The White Sox transferred Mendick (knee) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday. Mendick was already going to miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL, so the move to the 60-day IL is merely procedural. The transaction opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for Eloy Jimenez (hamstring), who is starting in Wednesday's series finale with the Twins after being activated from the 60-day IL.

    Mendick is dealing with right knee discomfort after leaving Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays. Mendick is being further evaluated following his collision in the top of the second inning, but he's dealing with a knee issue.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Exits following collision

    Mendick was removed from Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays in the top of the second inning due to an apparent right leg injury, Scott Merkin of reports. The 28-year-old collided with Adam Haseley while chasing down a foul ball and was unable to put any weight on his right leg as he was helped off the field. Mendick had crossed the plate in each of the 10 games leading up to Wednesday's matchup, and he slashed .275/.356/.500 with two homers, a triple, a double, 12 runs, eight RBI and a stolen base during that time. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available for Thursday's series opener against Baltimore.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Notches first career steal

    Mendick went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Tigers. The successful theft of third base against the battery of Will Vest and Tucker Barnhart was Mendick's first stolen base in the big leagues (145th game). Mendick has been a bright spot for the White Sox this month, hitting safely in 10 of 12 games, but his playing time could soon take a hit with Tim Anderson (groin) expected back next week.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Retreats to bench

    Mendick is out of the lineup for Thursday's game in Toronto, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Mendick filled in at shortstop for the first two games of the series following Tim Anderson's (groin) placement on the injured list and produced four hits and two RBI over seven at-bats, but he'll head to the bench in favor of Leury Garcia in the series finale. Garcia had been tending to a bruised side before returning to the lineup Wednesday as Chicago's second baseman in place of a resting Josh Harrison, but Garcia and Mendick are likely to split work at shortstop while Anderson is on the mend.
