Red Sox's Deivy Grullon: Signs with Red Sox
Grullon signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Wednesday.
Grullon spent time with three different Triple-A clubs in 2021 and hit .196 with 10 home runs, 25 RBI and 21 runs across 43 games. He appeared in one game for the Red Sox in 2020 and will rejoin the organization ahead of the 2022 campaign.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Deivy Grullon: Dealt to White Sox
Grullon was traded to White Sox from the Rays on Thursday for cash considerations, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Grullon has been a member of several organizations this season, including the Reds, Rays and Mets. He'll now land with the White Sox, who are in need of organizational depth at the position with Yasmani Grandal (knee) set to miss at least a few more weeks. Grullon has not logged a major-league plate appearance this season and is hitting .194/.282/.456 across 117 plate appearances at Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Deivy Grullon: Designated for assignment again
Grullon was designated for assignment by the Rays on Friday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Grullon is evidently seen as good enough to be worth picking up but not good enough to be worth keeping around. He's been designated for assignment five times since the end of last season, moving from the Red Sox to the Reds in December, then on to the Rays for a brief period in April before moving to the Mets and back to the Rays. It remains to be seen whether or not he'll be claimed off waivers yet again this time around, as none of the teams who've claimed him this year have liked him enough to call him up to the active roster. The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Matt Wisler, who was picked up in a trade with the Giants in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Deivy Grullon: Claimed by Rays
Grullon was claimed off waivers by the Rays on Saturday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.
Grullon has spent the year bouncing between several different organizations. He was briefly with the Rays for 18 days in April but never made the team's active roster. It will likely take an injury for that to happen this time around.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Deivy Grullon: Dropped from 40-man roster
Grullon was designated for assignment by the Mets on Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Catcher is just about the only position on the Mets' roster that hasn't been hit hard by injuries, so the team will remove Grullon from the 40-man roster in order to clear a spot for infielder Wilfredo Tovar. Grullon has already been designated for assignment by the Reds and Rays this season, so he'll be hoping to get picked up by his fourth organization of the year.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Deivy Grullon: Scooped up by Mets
The Mets claimed Grullon off waivers from the Rays on Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Grullon will be moving on to his fifth organization in seven months and his third in April after brief stints with the Reds and Rays. He'll get a spot on the Mets' 40-man roster, but since he still has minor-league options remaining, Grullon won't need to be included on New York's 26-man active roster. Instead, expect the 25-year-old catcher to report to Triple-A Syracuse in preparation for the start of the minor-league season, which begins next week.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Deivy Grullon: Designated for assignment
Grullon was designated for assignment by the Rays on Saturday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Grullon was claimed off waivers from the Reds in early April, but he'll be designated for assignment for the second time this month. The catcher has appeared in just five major-league games with the Phillies and Red Sox across the past two seasons.... See More ... See Less
Rays' Deivy Grullon: Finds new organization
The Rays claimed Grullon off waivers from the Reds on Tuesday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Though Grullon will tentatively replace reliever Chaz Roe (shoulder) on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster, he'll presumably be optioned to the Rays' alternate training site since the team already has three catchers on the active roster. Grullon has seen some action at the big-league level with the Phillies and Red Sox, appearing in five games across the past two seasons.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Deivy Grullon: Designated for assignment
Grullon was designated for assignment by the Reds on Saturday.
Grullon hit .283/.534/.496 in 108 games at the Triple-A level in the Phillies organization in 2019, but he hasn't established himself anywhere as even a backup catcher, receiving just 13 plate appearances at the highest level. The Reds apparently don't even like the 25-year-old as a depth option, as they removed him from the 40-man roster to clear space for waiver claim Beau Taylor, a 31-year-old with a career .492 OPS in limited big-league opportunities....

Reds' Deivy Grullon: Optioned to Triple-A
Grullon was optioned to Triple-A Louisville on Sunday.
Grullon was a long shot to make the Reds out of spring training. He'll serve as insurance to injury for Tucker Barnhart and Tyler Stephenson down at Louisville after being claimed off waivers in December.... See More ... See Less
Reds' Deivy Grullon: Catches on with Reds
The Reds claimed Grullon off waivers from the Red Sox on Wednesday.
Grullon will move on to his third organization since September after the Red Sox previously claimed the backstop off waivers from the Phillies. He'll get the opportunity to compete for the No. 2 catcher role with the Reds in spring training after Cincinnati non-tendered Curt Casali earlier this offseason.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Deivy Grullon: Moves back to satellite site
The Red Sox optioned Grullon to their alternate training site Wednesday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
As anticipated, Grullon's stint with Boston lasted only one day after the Red Sox designated him as their 29th man for the doubleheader with his former team, the Phillies. Grullon started behind the plate in the second game (a 5-2 Boston win), going 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Deivy Grullon: Called up as 29th man
Grullon was recalled by the Red Sox to serve as the 29th man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.
Grullon could get the chance to face his former team in his Red Sox debut if he gets into either game. He didn't make an appearance for the Phillies this season before being designated for assignment on deadline day, but he did appear for them in the first four games of his big-league career last September....

Red Sox's Deivy Grullon: Claimed by Red Sox
Grullon was claimed off waivers by the Red Sox and optioned to the team's alternate training site Thursday.
Grullon was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Monday, and he'll now serve as organizational catching depth for the Red Sox. The 24-year-old had a .850 OPS with 21 home runs and 77 RBI with Triple-A Lehigh Valley last year, but he'll need to work on his defensive abilities.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Deivy Grullon: Designated for assigment
Grullon was designated for assignment Monday.
The Phillies needed to clear a 40-man roster spot for Ranger Suarez, who was activated from the COVID-19 injured list. Grullon hit .283/.354/.496 with 21 home runs at Triple-A last season, but his defense behind the plate leaves a lot to be desired.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Deivy Grullon: Headed to Triple-A
Grullon was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Grullon was trying to compete for the Phillies' backup catcher role during spring training, but it appears as though Andrew Knapp (ribs) will likely secure the role despite dealing with an injury this spring. Grullon made his major-league debut in 2019 and could return at some point in 2020, but his fantasy outlook will likely be limited as long as J.T. Realmuto is healthy and serving as the starting catcher.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Deivy Grullon: Back in lineup
Grullon (mouth) will start at catcher and bat eighth in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Grullon's spring debut was delayed after he required dental work last week, but he was cleared to play Wednesday in the Phillies' 5-4 win over the Twins, entering the game off the bench as a designated hitter and making two plate appearances. He'll now be ready to assume his normal duties in the field as he attempts to win a spot on the Phillies' Opening Day roster as a backup catcher.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Deivy Grullon: Absent for dental work
Grullon has missed the Phillies last two Grapefruit League games due to an infected tooth, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
The issue doesn't appear likely to significantly impact Grullon's readiness for Opening Day. It's cost him the chance to play a temporarily increased role while Andrew Knapp is out due to a rib injury, but he'll likely still have plenty of chances to state his case to earn the backup catcher job....

Phillies' Deivy Grullon: Making first career start
Grullon will make his first career start in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.
Grullon will catch and bat eighth. The 23-year-old has been up for all of September but has made just a single plate appearance. He could get a few more opportunities to audition for the backup catcher job next season with J.T. Realmuto dealing with a sore knee. Grullon had long been seen as a defense-first prospect but has improved his stock over the last two seasons, hitting 21 homers in both campaigns while producing above-average batting lines. He's still unlikely to be anything more than a backup as long as he remains in the same organization as Realmuto.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Deivy Grullon: Called up from Triple-A
The Phillies selected Grullon's contract from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.
The clear No. 3 option on the depth chart at catcher, Grullon isn't expected to function as anything more than an emergency option behind J.T. Realmuto and Andrew Knapp. The 23-year-old batted .283 with 21 home runs and 77 RBI in 457 plate appearances with Lehigh Valley this season.... See More ... See Less
