Blue Jays' Dilson Herrera: Finds work with Jays
Herrera signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on April 28, MiLB.com reports.
Toronto assigned Herrera to Triple-A Buffalo prior to the start of the minor-league season last week, and he's proceeded to go 2-for-12 with five total bases over his first three games with the affiliate. The 27-year-old Herrera has previously seen action in the big leagues over parts of four seasons with the Mets, Reds and Orioles, producing a .199/.290/.386 career slash line.... See More ...

Orioles' Dilson Herrera: Clears waivers
Herrera cleared waivers and was outrighted to the Orioles' alternate training site Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Herrera was designated for assignment Tuesday after spending a week in the majors, and he'll remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. The 26-year-old slashed .248/.330/.501 with 24 home runs and 64 RBI with Triple-A Syracuse last season.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Dilson Herrera: Designated for assignment
Herrera was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Tuesday.
Herrera spent a week with the major-league club and went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts during that time. He reached base just once after he was hit by a pitch. The 26-year-old will now be cast off the 40-man roster, and it's unclear whether he'll find a spot with another organization given his lackluster results in the big leagues.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Dilson Herrera: Contract selected by Orioles
Herrera's contract was selected by the Orioles on Tuesday.
Herrera has yet to make his season debut and hit just .184/.268/.414 in 97 plate appearances for the Reds in 2018, his most recent big-league campaign, striking out at a 40.2 percent clip. He'll give the Orioles some added infield depth but is unlikely to play frequently.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Dilson Herrera: Added to 60-man pool
Herrera will be a part of the Orioles' 60-man player pool this season.
Once a noteworthy prospect with the Mets, Herrera was in camp on a minor-league deal this season. He could provide infield depth but is unlikely to play enough to provide fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Orioles' Dilson Herrera: Signs minor-league contract
Herrera signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Herrera spent 2019 with Triple-A Syracuse, but he opted out of his deal in September after recording a .831 OPS with 24 home runs over 117 games. The 25-year-old has appeared in the majors in three seasons, but he has failed to make much of an impact during his opportunities. If he has success in the Orioles' minor-league system, it wouldn't be surprising to see Herrera spend some time with the major-league club in 2020.... See More ... See Less
Dilson Herrera: Opts out of deal with Mets
Herrera opted out of his minor-league deal with the Mets on Sunday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Herrera started the season on an MiLB deal with the Mets, then opted out in early July only to re-sign a few days later. The 25-year-old had an .831 OPS with 24 homers in 117 games with Triple-A Syracuse this season.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dilson Herrera: Lands back with Mets
Herrera returned to the Mets on a minor-league contract Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Herrera opted out of his contract with the Mets on Tuesday but wound up back in the organization after receiving nothing better than minor-league offers elsewhere. He owns a .258/.355/.566 slash line in 68 games for Triple-A Syracuse this season.... See More ... See Less
Dilson Herrera: Elects free agency
Herrera opted out of his minor-league contract with the Mets on Tuesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Herrera evidently wasn't satisfied with his current position in the Mets' farm system, so he'll head to the open market. He last appeared in the big leagues with the Reds a season ago, slashing .184/.268/.414 with five homers and 11 RBI over 53 games.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dilson Herrera: Sent to minors camp
Herrera was assigned to the Mets' minor-league camp Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Once held in high esteem as a lower-level prospect, Herrera's mediocre numbers at Triple-A over the past four seasons in addition to his middling production in brief stints in the majors in 2014, 2015 and 2018 have significantly dimmed his luster. Considering he isn't a member of the 40-man roster, Herrera won't have a clear path to joining the Mets even if he thrives at Triple-A Syracuse in the early going.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Dilson Herrera: Inks deal with Mets
Herrera signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Thursday.
The deal includes an invitation to spring training. Herrera split time with Triple-A Louisville and the Reds in 2018, slashing .297/.367/.465 across 50 games with the Bats but struggling to a .184/.268/.414 line across 53 games with the big club. He'll likely serve as organizational depth for the Mets in 2019.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Dilson Herrera: Outrighted to Triple-A
Herrera was sent outright to Triple-A Louisville on Friday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Herrera will stick with the Reds after passing through waivers unclaimed. The 24-year-old struggled to make an impact at the major-league level in 2018, hitting just .184/.268/.414 with five homers across 53 games. Mason Williams was also cast off the team's 40-man roster in order to free up space for younger prospects who need to be protected from the Rule 5 draft.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Dilson Herrera: Knocks in run vs. Milwaukee
Herrera went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Brewers.
Herrera drove in Cincinnati's lone run on the day in the seventh inning on a double to left field. The 24-year-old second baseman has struggled to a .193 average with three homers and seven RBI through 35 games this season, so don't expect much production from him down the stretch of the 2018 campaign....

Reds' Dilson Herrera: Back on bench
Herrera is out of the lineup Sunday against the Cubs, Matt Martell of MLB.com reports.
Herrera will retreat to the bench for the second time in the series, disrupting a stretch of four starts in five games for the 24-year-old. Considering Herrera managed only two hits in 14 at-bats over those contests and is batting just .173 over 32 games with the Reds this season, his window for playing time may have closed. He'll likely be ticketed for a utility role unless the Reds lose another one of their regulars in the infield to an injury.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Dilson Herrera: Consecutive third base starts
Herrera has started the last two games at third base for the Reds, going a combined 2-for-7 with a run scored. On Tuesday he played third base while Eugenio Suarez shifted over to shortstop, and on Wednesday he provided Suarez a day off.
Herrera will probably retreat to the bench this weekend against the Cubs, but he's starting to get more playing time now after struggling to find at-bats upon his callup.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Dilson Herrera: Logs first outfield start Saturday
Herrera got his first outfield start Saturday against the Diamondbacks, starting in left field, Grant Freking of MLB.com reports. "Most guys who play the infield can catch a fly ball. We want him to [catch] it and get it back into the cut-off man," interim manager Jim Riggleman said. "It's a little bit of experimentation. As much as we're trying to win ballgames, we've got to find out about some guys, too."
Herrera went 0-for-2 with a walk in the game, and looked competent in the field. Herrera's big issue is that there's no room for him in the infield, now or in the future, with Nick Senzel likely making it to the big club in 2019.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Dilson Herrera: Will get some outfield time
The Reds intend to add Herrera to the mix of their outfielders, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. "I want to get Herrera as much work as we can taking balls out there during batting practice," interim manager Jim Riggleman said Monday. "We're trying to find a right-handed complement to Mason [Williams]."
This reverses course from the Reds' stance from two weeks ago, but much has changed since then. Scott Schebler (shoulder) had a setback in his rehab, Jesse Winker (shoulder) is out for the season, and Adam Duvall has been traded. Herrera has had a hard time getting playing time, even in a pinch-hitting capacity. He has only played in three of the Reds' last nine games, compiling eight at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Dilson Herrera: Outfield time unlikely
Herrera is unlikely to get playing time in the outfield even with Scott Schebler on the DL and Jesse Winker hurting, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.
Herrera did play three innings in left field in a blowout game against the Indians earlier this month, hence the speculation. "I'm not totally confident Herrera is going to be an outfielder for us," interim manager Jim Riggleman said. Phillip Ervin and Brandon Dixon are ahead of Herrera, defensively.... See More ...

Reds' Dilson Herrera: Contract purchased from minors
Herrera was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Friday.
Herrera hasn't played in a major-league game since the 2015 season with the Mets. Across 50 contests with Louisville this season, he's hit .297/.367/.465 with seven home runs and 27 RBI. Look for him to serve as added infield depth, particularly behind Scooter Gennett at the keystone.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Dilson Herrera: Spends time at second in High-A
Herrera has appeared in six games for High-A Daytona to begin the 2018 season, including getting a start at the keystone on Opening Day, Chris Boyle of The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports.
Herrera underwent season-ending arthroscopic surgery to remove bone chips from his right shoulder last July, and was hampered by a lingering shoulder issue this spring, which took him out of the running for an Opening Day roster spot with Cincinnati. The 24-year-old reported to Daytona since the High-A level utilizes a designated hitter and Herrera was not feeling 100 percent coming out of camp. It's a positive sign that he's been able to get some work in at second base and he will likely return to Triple-A once he's back to 100 percent.... See More ... See Less
