Blue Jays' Kellin Deglan: Re-signs with Jays
Deglan signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Monday.
The deal includes an invitation to big-league spring training, but Deglan will more than likely be bound for Triple-A Buffalo before the regular season gets underway. The 29-year-old backstop split time at the Triple-A level between Buffalo and the Yankees' affiliate in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 2021, slashing .211/.320/.358 over 109 plate appearances....

Blue Jays' Kellin Deglan: Dealt to Blue Jays
The Yankees traded Deglan to the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports. It's unclear what New York received in the deal.
The 29-year-old catcher hit .233/.281/.367 with a home run and three RBI in 12 games with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season. With the Blue Jays, Deglan is unlikely to be viewed as anything more than organizational depth at his position.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Kellin Deglan: Reassigned to minor-league camp
Deglan was sent to minor-league camp Thursday.
The move comes as no surprise as Deglan is not on the 40-man roster and has logged only 19 at-bats at the Triple-A level. The 27-year-old played in five Grapefruit League games, collecting three hits in five plate appearances, including one double.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Kellin Deglan: Re-signs with Yankees
Deglan (undisclosed) re-signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees, Baseball America reports.
Deglan is a former first-rounder who gained prominence in the British Columbia Premier Baseball League before graduating high school. Since then, he has yet to rise higher than Double-A and he missed all of 2017 with an undisclosed injury. Still, Deglan is only 25 years old, and the year off may be just what he needs to improve on his .194/.256/.332 slash line from 2016.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Kellin Deglan: Has yet to play this season
Deglan has missed the entire season thus far with an undisclosed injury.
The young catcher was held out of the World Baseball Classic in March after undergoing shoulder surgery, but he was able to participate in spring training after that so it's unclear if his absence is still connected to the same ailment. Deglan spent all of 2016 at the Double-A level for the Rangers, but he struggled to the tune of a .194/.256/.332 slash line before joining the Yankees organization over the offseason.... See More ...

Yankees' Kellin Deglan: Sent to minor league camp
Deglan (shoulder) was reassigned to minor league camp Sunday, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Even though Deglan was a perfect 3-for-3 for the Yankees this spring, his chances of making the big league roster were slim to none as he's yet to play in Triple-A. Once healthy, Deglan will likely report to Double-A Trenton and serve as organizational depth.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Kellin Deglan: Will not participate in WBC
Deglan will not participate in the World Baseball Classic due to shoulder surgery, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
The native Canadian recently latched on with the Yankees on a minor league deal at the end of January. Due to his recent flare-up of shoulder soreness, he won't be able to participate in the WBC, leaving Canada with George Kottaras as the only catcher currently on the roster. Given the Yankees' depth at catcher on the active roster, Deglan will likely begin the year in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Kellin Deglan: Signs minor league contract with Yankees
Deglan agreed to a minor league deal with the Yankees that includes an invitation to spring training.
The 24-year-old hasn't made it past Double-A in his seven seasons with the Rangers since being taken in the first round of the 2010 draft. He struggled at Double-A Frisco last season, slashing .194/.256/.332 in 294 plate appearances, striking out a tough 36.7 percent of the time in the process.... See More ... See Less
