  • Taylor Davis: Bound for open market

    Davis elected free agency Oct. 6.

    The 32-year-old catcher will presumably have to settle for a minor-league deal in free agency this winter. He spent the entire 2022 season at Triple-A Indianapolis in the Pirates organization, slashing .273/.355/.306 over 144 plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Taylor Davis: Remains in organization

    Davis was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis after clearing waivers Sunday, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    Davis won't immediately report to Indianapolis, as the Pirates plan to keep him on their taxi squad while the team heads to the West Coast for a seven-game road trip during the upcoming week. The 32-year-old didn't make any appearances for the Bucs during his brief stay on the active roster before he was designated for assignment Friday.

  • Pirates' Taylor Davis: Designated for assignment

    Davis was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Friday.

    The Pirates claimed another backup catcher (Jose Godoy) on waivers, so Davis was cast off the 40-man roster. Davis' contract was selected Thursday but he never got into a big-league game this season.

  • Pirates' Taylor Davis: Contract selected by Bucs

    Davis' contract was selected from Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday.

    Davis appeared in two games for the Pirates last year and will rejoin the major-league roster after Tyler Heineman (groin) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday. Over 35 Triple-A games this year, Davis has hit .282 with four doubles, 14 RBI and eight runs. He should serve as catching depth behind Jason Delay.

  • Pirates' Taylor Davis: Sent to minors

    The Pirates reassigned Davis to minor-league camp Tuesday.

    Davis was one of three non-roster catchers who was sent to minor-league camp Tuesday, leaving the Pirates without an obvious No. 2 option behind top backstop Roberto Perez with Opening Day just two days away. Pittsburgh will most likely explore the trade or free-agent market for another option to slot behind Perez on the depth chart.

  • Pirates' Taylor Davis: In Pirates camp on NRI deal

    The Pirates signed Davis to a minor-league contract March 11.

    Davis has been competing with Michael Perez for the Pirates' backup catching job behind Roberto Perez. Whether Davis or Michael Perez ultimately emerges as the No. 2 option, neither is likely to play much more than twice per week while Roberto Perez is healthy.

  • Taylor Davis: Parts ways with Pittsburgh

    Davis was released by the Pirates on Tuesday.

    Davis was acquired by the Pirates from the Orioles in June and appeared in two major-league games last season. He spent most of 2021 at Triple-A and hit .248/.344/.325 in 51 games.

  • Pirates' Taylor Davis: Sent down Tuesday

    Davis was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports.

    The catcher appeared in two games in the majors after having his contract purchased by Pittsburgh on Sept. 20. He went 2-for-5 with a walk in those contests. Jacob Stallings was reinstated from the 7-day injured list Tuesday following a concussion that caused him to miss over a week of action.

  • Pirates' Taylor Davis: Debut goes well

    Davis went 2-for-3 in Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Phillies.

    The 31-year-old, who collected a pair of singles Saturday, could work his way into a platoon with Michael Perez while starter Jacob Stallings (concussion) remains sidelined. Davis has slashed .253/.347/.331 at Triple-A with two homers in 176 plate appearances in 2021.

  • Pirates' Taylor Davis: Contract selected by Pittsburgh

    Davis had his contract selected by the Pirates on Monday.

    Davis was acquired by the Pirates in June and will receive his first big-league opportunity with the organization since Jacob Stallings (concussion) landed on the injured list. Davis should operate as the No. 2 backstop while Michael Perez handles primary catching duties with Stallings out.

  • Pirates' Taylor Davis: Traded to Pirates

    The Orioles traded Davis to the Pirates in exchange for Jose Berroa on Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Davis joins the Pirates organization in the midst of a solid offensive season, as he's hit .289 across 43 Triple-A at-bats so far in 2021.

  • Orioles' Taylor Davis: Added to player pool

    Davis joined the Orioles' player pool Friday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Davis will provide the Orioles with extra depth behind the plate, but he's unlikely to play a significant role. The 30-year-old has only received 39 big-league plate appearances in his career.

  • Orioles' Taylor Davis: Catches on with Baltimore

    Davis agreed Thursday with the Orioles on a minor-league contract, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

    The exact terms of Davis' deal aren't known, but it likely includes an invitation to big-league spring training. Davis had previously spent his entire professional career with the Cubs organization since signing as an amateur free agent in July 2011. The 30-year-old backstop received the majority of his work at Triple-A Iowa over the past three seasons, but he has seen limited big-league action in each of those years, submitting a .222/.256/.333 slash line over 39 career plate appearances with Chicago.

  • Cubs' Taylor Davis: Clears waivers

    Davis cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.

    Davis unsurprisingly went unclaimed on waivers, as he's 29 years old and has just 39 big-league plate appearances under his belt. He'll remain as organizational depth for the Cubs.

  • Cubs' Taylor Davis: Removed from 40-man roster

    Davis was designated for assignment Saturday.

    Davis was removed from the 40-man roster to clear a spot for Danny Hultzen, whose contract was purchased in a corresponding move. The 29-year-old has just 39 career big-league plate appearances and is unlikely to be a particularly desirable player on the waiver wire.

  • Cubs' Taylor Davis: Optioned to Triple-A

    Davis was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The Cubs were carrying four healthy catchers, so Davis probably benefits more from being at Triple-A for the Iowa Cubs' playoff run than to ride the bench in the majors. Once Iowa's season is over, he will likely head back up to the majors.

  • Cubs' Taylor Davis: Joins big-league club

    Davis was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Sunday.

  • Cubs' Taylor Davis: Sent back to minors

    Davis was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    Davis is no longer needed with the big club, as Jonathan Lucroy, who signed with the Cubs on Wednesday, is set to join the team ahead of Thursday's series opener in Cincinnati. The backstop went hitless in three at-bats during his most recent stint with Chicago.

  • Cubs' Taylor Davis: Rejoins major-league club

    Davis was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Sunday.

    Davis rejoins the Cubs on Sunday with the team placing Willson Contreras on the injured list with a hamstring strain. The 29-year-old should serve as the backup to Victor Caratini behind the plate while Contreras remains sidelined.
