  • Mets' JT Riddle: Traded to Mets

    Riddle was acquired by the Mets from the Reds on Sunday in exchange for cash considerations, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Riddle joined the Reds on a minor-league deal in March and was on the big-league roster for a week in April before being designated for assignment. The 30-year-old went 1-for-4 in two games for Cincinnati, and he has a .223/.261/.354 slash line over 252 games in his MLB career.

  • Reds' JT Riddle: Accepts outright assignment

    Riddle accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Louisville on Thursday, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

    Riddle was designated for assignment Tuesday after spending a week on the active roster. As a 30-year-old with a career .223/.261/.354 slash line, it's no surprise to see him go unclaimed on waivers. He'll remain as organizational depth for now.

  • Reds' JT Riddle: Booted off 40-man roster

    The Reds designated Riddle for assignment Tuesday.

    Cincinnati will replace Riddle on the 40-man roster and 28-man active roster with another utility type in Matt Reynolds, whom the Reds claimed off waivers from the Mets. After receiving a call-up from Triple-A Louisville a week ago, Riddle appeared in two games and went 1-for-4 with a base hit.

  • Reds' JT Riddle: Contract selected by Cincinnati

    Riddle had his contract selected by the Reds on Tuesday.

    The 30-year-old signed with Cincinnati on a minor-league deal in mid-March and will join the big-league roster as infield depth with Jonathan India (hamstring) and Mike Moustakas (biceps) heading to the injured list. Riddle appeared in only four major-league games with the Twins last year and had a .591 OPS at the Triple-A level.

  • Twins' JT Riddle: Headed for Triple-A

    Riddle is expected to report to Triple-A St. Paul this week after going unclaimed off waivers, Darren Wolfson of 5 Eyewitness News Saint Paul reports.

    Riddle will remain in the organization after Minnesota booted him off its 40-man roster over the weekend shortly after reinstating him from the COVID-19 injured list. He'll likely fill a utility role for St. Paul.

  • Twins' JT Riddle: DFA'd by Minnesota

    RIddle (COVID-19 protocols) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list and designated for assignment by the Twins on Friday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    The 29-year-old had his contract selected April 14 after Andrelton Simmons tested positive for the virus, and Riddle landed on the COVID-19 IL himself a week later. Riddle's services are no longer required with Simmons, Max Kepler and Kyle Garlick now all back from the IL.

  • Twins' JT Riddle: On COVID list thru contact tracing

    Riddle was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday as the result of being identified as a close contact of an infected person, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Since Riddle hasn't tested positive for the virus, MLB's health and protocols will allow him to rejoin the Twins after a mandatory seven-day quarantine, assuming he continues to test negative during that time. The utility man is one of five Twins players that currently resides on the COVID-19 IL.

  • Twins' JT Riddle: Placed on COVID-19 IL

    The Twins placed Riddle on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Riddle appeared in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader loss to Oakland as a pinch runner. The Twins called up a fourth catcher in Tomas Telis to replace Riddle on the roster, so Minnesota will likely need to add an additional backup infielder after the game.

  • Twins' JT Riddle: Contract selected by Twins

    Riddle's contract was selected by the Twins on Wednesday, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Riddle was added to the 40-man roster after Andrelton Simmons (undisclosed) was placed on the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move. Riddle will start at shortstop for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against Boston, batting ninth.

  • Twins' JT Riddle: Sent to minors

    Riddle was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday.

    Riddle hit .148 with one home run, one RBI and one stolen base as a non-roster invitee for the Twins this spring. He'll now head to minor-league camp ahead of the regular season and could begin the year at Triple-A St. Paul.

  • Twins' JT Riddle: Joining Twins camp

    Riddle signed with the Twins as a non-roster invitee Thursday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    Riddle has played in parts of four seasons at the big-league level but has very little to show for it, hitting just .222/.261/.355 overall. His .149/.174/.224 line in 23 games for the Pirates last season represented a significant step back from his already-poor career numbers. Riddle's ability to play shortstop helps his case for a bench job, but the Twins likely won't be happy if they wind up giving him a lot of at-bats.

  • JT Riddle: Heads to free agency

    Riddle decided to elect free agency Tuesday rather than accept an outright assignment to the minors, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Riddle received 69 plate appearances with the Marlins this season and did very little with them, hitting .149/.174/.224. The 28-year-old is unlikely to generate much interest on the free-agent market this winter, as his career slash line now sits at .222/.261/.355.

  • Pirates' JT Riddle: DFA'd by Pittsburgh

    Riddle was designated for assignment by the Pirates on Thursday, Alex Stumpf of reports.

    Riddle spent the entire 2020 season on the active roster, but he saw limited playing time while slashing .149/.174/.224 with eight runs and 13 strikeouts over 67 at-bats. He'll now be subjected to waivers after a disappointing first season with the Pirates. Right-hander Sean Poppen was claimed off waivers by Pittsburgh in a corresponding move.

  • Pirates' JT Riddle: Scores team's only run

    Riddle went 1-for-2 with a run scored during Pittsburgh's 8-1 loss to the White Sox on Wednesday.

    In a game where no Pirate registered an RBI, Riddle crossed the plate on a fielder's choice. Pittsburgh was thoroughly contained by White Sox starter Dane Dunning. Riddle is hitting .156 this season through 45 at-bats.

  • Pirates' JT Riddle: Accounts for lone run in loss

    Riddle went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 9-1 loss to the Brewers.

    Riddle's seventh inning blast was one of just four hits for the Pirates in the game. It was also his first homer of the year. The 28-year-old utility man is slashing .156/.182/.281 with an RBI and four runs scored in 11 contests.

  • Pirates' JT Riddle: Activated ahead of Wednesday's game

    Riddle (abdomen) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's game against the Twins, Adam Berry of reports.

    Riddle has been sidelined since just before the regular season as a result of a right abdominal strain, but he'll join the Pirates' active roster Wednesday. The 28-year-old should take on a utility depth role with Pittsburgh. He isn't starting Wednesday's contest but should be available going forward.

  • Pirates' JT Riddle: IL bound with abdominal injury

    The Pirates placed Riddle on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a right abdominal strain.

    The injury will prevent Riddle from earning a spot on the Opening Day roster, clearing the way for Erik Gonzalez, Cole Tucker and Phillip Evans to make the roster as backup infielders. Riddle joined the Pirates in January after wrapping up his third big-league season with Miami in 2019, during which he hit .189 with six home runs over 139 plate appearances.

  • Pirates' JT Riddle: Looking at utility role

    Riddle put together a strong spring and is likely to make the team as a utility player.

    He hit .304 with three triples in 23 at-bats, bouncing back and forth between the infield and outfield. Noted for his defense, the 29-year-old is already a part of the team's 40-man roster. His best chance for playing time might be in center field, where Jarrod Dyson and backup Guillermo Heredia stand in his way. Riddle has compiled a career line of .229/.269/.368 with the Marlins. Given that he's not expected to play much, he may have a difficult time helping fantasy owners.

  • Pirates' JT Riddle: Signs with Pittsburgh

    Riddle signed with the Pirates on Friday.

    Riddle will get a big-league deal, though the financial terms have not yet been disclosed. Riddle's ability to play center field and shortstop may earn him a bench role, but his weak bat (a .229/.269/.368 slash line in 223 career games) should limit his playing time and make him an unappealing fantasy option.
