Top Tyler Heineman News

  • Red Sox's Tyler Heineman: Dealt to Boston

    The Red Sox acquired Heineman from the Mets on Friday in exchange for cash considerations, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

    Heineman had been claimed off waivers by the Mets earlier this offseason but was designated for assignment earlier this week. The 32-year-old catcher has an option year remaining and seems likely to begin 2024 at Triple-A Worcester.

  • Mets' Tyler Heineman: Designated for assignment

    The Mets designated Heineman for assignment Tuesday, Will Sammon of The Athletic reports.

    Heineman will lose his spot on the 40-man roster to Adam Ottavino, whose signing was made official Tuesday. Heineman slashed .237/.383/.316 in 47 plate appearances between the Pirates and Blue Jays last season, and he logged similar numbers with the teams' Triple-A affiliates.

  • Mets' Tyler Heineman: Nabbed off waivers by Mets

    The Mets claimed Heineman off waivers from the Blue Jays on Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Heineman is a career .218/.297/.282 hitter over parts of four big-league seasons. With Francisco Alvarez and Omar Narvaez back in 2024, the 32-year-old Heineman would appear pegged for Triple-A Syracuse to begin next season.

  • Blue Jays' Tyler Heineman: Plates three RBI

    Heineman went 2-for-3 with a triple, a walk, three RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 12-8 loss to the Rays.

    Heineman opened up the scoring for the Blue Jays with a two-run triple in the second and then added on with an RBI single in the sixth. Sunday was Heineman's second multi-hit game of the year and his first RBI of the season. For now, he's the team's backup catcher with Danny Jansen (finger) working his way back from a fractured right middle finger, but Heineman may lose his roster spot, with Jansen expressing optimism he could return for a potential postseason run.

  • Blue Jays' Tyler Heineman: Recalled to Toronto

    The Blue Jays recalled Heineman from Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

    With Danny Jansen (finger) on the 10-day IL, Heineman will come up from the farm to serve as the backup to Alejandro Kirk. Heineman has gone 5-for-16 in the majors since being traded from Pittsburgh in late April.

  • Blue Jays' Tyler Heineman: Optioned back to Triple-A

    Toronto optioned Heineman to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.

    Alejandro Kirk (hand) is back from the 10-day injured list, so Heineman was no longer needed as depth at the catcher position. The 32-year-old holds a weak .217/.290/.277 career batting line in 266 major-league plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Tyler Heineman: Available off bench Tuesday

    Heineman (side) is expected to be available off the bench Tuesday versus the Giants, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    Heineman was removed from Sunday's series finale against the Athletics because of left side discomfort, but an MRI taken Monday turned up clean for any structural damage. He's healthy but probably at risk of losing his spot on the Blue Jays' major-league roster when Alejandro Kirk (hand) returns from the injured list later this week.

  • Blue Jays' Tyler Heineman: Leaves with injury

    Heineman was removed from Sunday's win over the Athletics with left side discomfort, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    Heineman appeared to tweak something on a swing during the eighth inning and was unable to finish the plate appearance. The 32-year-old is serving as Toronto's backup catcher with Alejandro Kirk (hand) on the injured list, so the club may need additional catching depth if Heineman will be unavailable for more than a day or two.

  • Blue Jays' Tyler Heineman: Back with big club

    The Blue Jays recalled Heineman from Triple-A Buffalo on Monday.

    He'll provide the Blue Jays with an extra body at catcher behind No. 1 backstop Danny Jansen after Alejandro Kirk (hand) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday. Jansen should handle the bulk of the work behind the dish while Kirk is on the shelf, so Heineman may be in store for just a couple starts per week during his upcoming stint in the big leagues.

  • Blue Jays' Tyler Heineman: Optioned to Triple-A

    Toronto optioned Heineman to Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Danny Jansen (groin) is back from the injured list, so Heineman's presence was no longer needed. The 31-year-old catcher has gone 4-for-19 (.211) with one extra-base hit in nine major-league games this season between Pirates and Blue Jays.
