  • Reds' Austin Wynns: Overcomes shoulder injury

    Wynns (shoulder) made his season debut Sunday in Triple-A Louisville's 6-4 loss to Indianapolis, going 2-for-3 with a run scored.

    Wynns didn't appear in any Cactus League games after March 12 while tending to a sore shoulder, but the injury didn't keep him from being available for the start of the minor-league season. The 33-year-old is in line to serve as organizational catching depth for the Reds in 2024.

  • Reds' Austin Wynns: Dealing with sore shoulder

    Wynns is battling shoulder soreness, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

  • Reds' Austin Wynns: Clears waivers, will be NRI

    Wynns cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Thursday.

  • Reds' Austin Wynns: Loses 40-man roster spot

    Wynns was designated for assignment by the Reds on Tuesday.

    Cincinnati needed to clear a spot on its 40-man roster for the addition of Frankie Montas. Wynns was just signed to a one-year, $950,000 contract last month and the Reds are betting he'll clear waivers, at which point he would presumably head to spring training as a non-roster invitee.

  • Reds' Austin Wynns: Signs one-year deal with Reds

    Wynns signed a one-year, $950,000 contract with the Reds on Thursday.

    Wynns, 32, batted just .208/.268/.277 with one home run in 51 major-league games last season between the Giants, Dodgers and Rockies. He'll probably rank third on the Reds' organizational depth chart at catcher leading into the 2024 campaign, firmly behind Tyler Stephenson and Luke Maile.

  • Rockies' Austin Wynns: Removed from 40-man roster

    Wynns cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday.

    The Rockies are doing some cleanup on their 40-man roster and Wynns is one of the casualties. He has the ability to become a free agent if he so chooses rather than accept the minor-league assignment.

    Wynns will start at catcher and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

  • Rockies' Austin Wynns: Pops first homer of year

    Wynns went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Giants.

    He took Ryan Walker deep in the second inning, giving the veteran catcher his first homer of 2023. Even playing his home games at altitude hasn't done much to improve Wynns' offense -- since joining the Rockies in early May, he's slashing .222/.265/.311 in 50 plate appearances, numbers right in line with his career .228/.273/.332 performance.

  • Dodgers' Austin Wynns: Designated for assignment

    The Dodgers designated Wynns for assignment Sunday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    Wynns joined the Dodgers on a major-league contract in mid-April after being designated for assignment by the Giants, but he saw sporadic playing time with his new club. He elected free agency after being cast off San Francisco's 40-man roster earlier in April, and it's unclear whether he'll remain in the Dodgers' organization if he clears waivers following Sunday's move.

  • Dodgers' Austin Wynns: Making team debut vs. Mets

    Wynns will be making his debut with the Dodgers after signing with the club shortly after Will Smith was placed on the concussion injured list.
