Blue Jays' Brian Serven: Sent outright to Triple-A
Serven was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo on Monday.
The Blue Jays quietly designated Serven for assignment and will send him to Triple-A now that he's passed through waivers. He was claimed by Toronto in mid-January and figures to serve as organizational depth at catcher.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Brian Serven: Claimed by Blue Jays
The Blue Jays claimed Serven off waivers from the Cubs on Tuesday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.
Serven has gone from the Rockies to the Cubs and now to the Blue Jays via waivers this month. The 28-year-old has slashed just .195/.248/.314 over 228 plate appearances at the major-league level, even as his home games have been played at Coors Field. Serven does have options remaining and, if he's still with the Blue Jays come Opening Day, he seems likely to be assigned to their Triple-A affiliate in Buffalo.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Brian Serven: DFA'd by Cubs
The Cubs designated Serven for assignment Thursday.
Serven will lose his spot on the Cubs' 40-man roster following the acquisition of Michael Busch and Yency Almonte from the Dodgers on Thursday. Serven managed just a .572 OPS through 162 plate appearances in Triple-A last season, making it possible he goes unclaimed off waivers.... See More ... See Less
Cubs' Brian Serven: Claimed by Cubbies
The Cubs claimed Serven off waivers from the Rockies on Friday.
The Rockies dumped Serven from their 40-man roster in order to make room for Jacob Stallings, who signed with the club Friday. Serven managed to slash just .199/.241/.331 across 162 plate appearances with Colorado's Triple-A affiliate, and he'll almost certainly return to the minors to begin his tenure with the Cubs....

Rockies' Brian Serven: Optioned to Triple-A
Colorado optioned Serven to Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday.
Jorge Alfaro has been brought up by the Rockies in a corresponding roster move to help at catcher and mix in at DH. Serven, 28, is batting just .130 with a .304 OPS in 23 plate appearances this year at the major-league level.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Brian Serven: Summoned from minors
Colorado recalled Serven from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Serven hit just .130 with a .304 OPS over 23 plate appearances before being optioned to Triple-A in early May. While he's back up with the Rockies, Serven will provide depth behind the plate, though he could see more playing time if Elias Diaz (head) requires a stint on the injured list.... See More ...

Rockies' Brian Serven: Optioned to Triple-A
Serven was optioned Friday to Triple-A Albuquerque.
Austin Wynns, claimed off waivers from the Dodgers on Thursday, will join the Rockies as the new backup to starting catcher Elias Diaz. Serven was just 3-for-23 (.130) with no walks and 10 strikeouts through 10 games this season with Colorado.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Brian Serven: Draws rare start
Serven went 1-for-2 Wednesday against the Cardinals.
Serven was expected to be in a fairly even split for playing time behind the plate with Elias Diaz this season, but he made just his third start Wednesday. He led off the sixth inning with a single but was replaced by a pinch hitter one frame later. Serven has three hits in seven at-bats for the campaign but is clearly viewed as just the backup catcher in Colorado.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Brian Serven: Striking out at alarming clip
Serven has struck out 20 times across 42 plate appearances during Cactus League games this spring.
Serven is all but locked into a roster spot, so even his slow spring performance isn't likely to change his status for Opening Day. However, he may lose out on playing time to Elias Diaz -- the Rockies' other catcher that will start the campaign in the majors --until he can show he can get back on track at the dish....

Rockies' Brian Serven: Back on bench with Diaz healthy
Serven is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
Elias Diaz will check back in behind the plate Tuesday after being reinstated from the injured list Sunday, spelling an end to Serven's three-game starting streak. The return of Diaz will also likely result in Serven falling into a timeshare at catcher, if not the clear-cut No. 2 role. While Diaz was on the shelf with the hand injury he picked up Aug. 10, Serven slashed .185/.267/.444.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Brian Serven: Hits sixth home run
Serven went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's extra-innings loss to the Giants.
Serven's sixth home run of the season was a two-run shot to tie the game 2-2 in the bottom of the fifth inning. The 27-year-old has started 10 of the last 11 games for the Rockies since primary catcher Elias Diaz went down with a wrist injury. Serven is hitting just .229 on the season, but he owned a .265 average at Coors Field entering the afternoon, so he could be a serviceable option at catcher during weeks the Rockies are at home....

Rockies' Brian Serven: Receives breather
Serven is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Serven has taken over as the Rockies' clear No. 1 catcher since Elias Diaz (wrist) landed on the injured list last Friday, but the 27-year-old will need a breather as the Rockies and Cardinals close their series with a day game after a night game. While starting in five of the past six games, Serven went 3-for-16 with a home run, a double, two walks, three RBI and an additional run.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Brian Serven: On bench Saturday
Serven isn't starting Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Rockies' Brian Serven: Homers in Friday's win
Serven went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks.
Elias Diaz (shoulder) went on the injured list Friday, so it appears Serven will get a look as the starting catcher for a while. He made a good impression Friday with his fifth homer of the year, tying the game at 3-3 in the fifth inning. The 27-year-old has gone 6-for-17 (.353) in August, lifting his season slash line to .244/.308/.412 through 130 plate appearances. He's added 13 RBI, 16 runs scored, three doubles and a triple. Serven will likely hit at the bottom of the order even as a regular starter, though a favorable home park could make him an intriguing waiver-wire add during Diaz's absence.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Brian Serven: Connects for fourth homer
Serven went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Dodgers.
Serven will be happy to put July behind him -- he went 3-for-37 (.081) with a home run, a double, four runs scored and a 3:8 BB:K in 12 contests this month. That poor performance at the plate mostly erased the gains he'd made in June to earn a split of playing time with Elias Diaz, and it appears Serven is more or less back to a backup role. He's slashing .225/.295/.382 with four homers, 10 RBI, 12 runs scored, two doubles and a triple in 112 plate appearances this year.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Brian Serven: Alternating starts with Diaz
Serven is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.
Serven appeared to solidify himself as the Rockies' top backstop in mid-June, but he and Elias Diaz have since fallen into a near-even timeshare behind the dish. The two have alternated starts at catcher for 12 consecutive contests, with Serven going 1-for-19 with a double, two walks, two runs and no RBI in his six starts during that stretch.... See More ...

Rockies' Brian Serven: Still not starting
Serven isn't in the lineup Saturday against Minnesota.

Serven isn't starting Friday's game against the Twins, Danielle Allentuck of The Denver Gazette reports.

Serven is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale against the Marlins, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
