  • Padres' Cal Mitchell: Loses out in roster battle

    The Padres reassigned Mitchell to minor-league camp Monday.

    Mitchell was attending camp as a non-roster invitee but didn't do enough in spring training to make a legitimate run at an Opening Day roster spot, as he slashed .227/.280/.455 over 11 Cactus League games. He's likely to begin the season with the Padres' Triple-A affiliate in El Paso.

  • Padres' Cal Mitchell: Signs with Friars

    Mitchell signed a minor-league contract with the Padres on Wednesday and received an invitation to major-league spring training, Britt Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.

    Mitchell spent the vast majority of 2023 with the Pirates' Triple-A affiliate, slashing .261/.333/.414 with 55 RBI across 316 plate appearances. With a .626 OPS across 237 major-league plate appearances in his career, Mitchell's role with San Diego will likely be limited to organizational depth.

    Pittsburgh outrighted Mitchell to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

  • Pirates' Cal Mitchell: Designated for assignment

    The Pirates designated Mitchell for assignment Friday.

    The 24-year-old will cede his spot on the 40-man roster to Miguel Andujar, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Indianapolis in a corresponding move. Mitchell appeared in two games for the Pirates in 2023 but has otherwise spent the season at Indianapolis, where he slashed .264/.338/.426 with nine home runs and 53 RBI across 300 plate appearances. He had been sidelined for much of the past two months with an undisclosed injury, but he appears to be healthy again after Indianapolis activated him from its 7-day injured list Tuesday.

    Mitchell is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

    Mitchell will remain on the bench with southpaw Matthew Liberatore on the bump for the Cardinals, marking the third straight absence for the lefty-hitting outfielder. With a .638 OPS over 231 plate appearances during his rookie season, Mitchell won't necessarily have a strong case to open the 2023 campaign in a near-everyday role for the Pirates.

  • Pirates' Cal Mitchell: Swipes third bag

    Mitchell went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a 4-1 win Tuesday over the Reds.

It was his third stolen base of the season and second since Sept. 12.

  • Pirates' Cal Mitchell: Not in lineup

    Mitchell will sit Saturday against the Cubs.

    Mitchell hasn't started a game against a lefty since his return to the majors at the start of September. That setup seems to be working fairly well for him, as he owns a respectable .725 OPS this month after struggling to a .577 OPS in his previous stints with the team. He'll sit against southpaw Wade Miley, with Diego Castillo getting the nod in right field.

He's also had 149 plate appearances in Pittsburgh but maintained only a .209/.250/.338 line in that sample.
