Brewers' Eric Haase: Signs with Milwaukee
Haase agreed to a one-year contract with the Brewers on Wednesday.
Haase was outrighted off Cleveland's 40-man roster in early December and elected free agency after the season, and he's now found a home for 2024. The 31-year-old also has two years of club control beyond the upcoming campaign. He struggled to a .201/.247/.281 slash line last year but had a .746 OPS across the prior two seasons. Haase should serve as Milwaukee's No. 2 catcher behind starter William Contreras.... See More ... See Less
Eric Haase: Elects free agency
Haase elected to become a free agent Tuesday.
Haase tallied 36 home runs in 208 games for the Tigers between the 2021-2022 seasons, but the 30-year-old catcher and corner outfielder stumbled to a .201/.247/.281 batting line across 293 major-league plate appearances in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Eric Haase: Outrighted to Triple-A
Haase cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Columbus on Sunday.
Haase lost his spot on the Guardians' 40-man roster, but it appears he will stick around in the organization. The 30-year-old has managed just a .528 OPS with four home runs in 89 games between the Tigers and Guardians in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Eric Haase: Jettisoned from 40-man roster
Haase was designated for assignment by the Guardians on Thursday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.
The Guardians needed to clear a couple spots on their 40-man roster for their recent waiver claims, and Haase is one of the victims. Haase lasted barely over a week with Cleveland after being claimed off waivers from the Tigers.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Eric Haase: Logs steal Sunday
Haase went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Sunday's 10-7 extra-innings win over the Blue Jays.
Haase has made two starts since the Guardians claimed him off waivers from the Tigers last Monday. Both of those games have seen him start behind the dish, but his path to playing time there is crowded with both Bo Naylor and Cam Gallagher also on the roster. Haase has a paltry .203/.249/.284 slash line with four home runs, four steals, 26 RBI, 22 runs scored, eight doubles and a triple over 290 plate appearances this season. He's gone 2-for-7 with a walk and two strikeouts with Cleveland, but it seems unlikely the 30-year-old will get into the lineup much more than once or twice a week.... See More ... See Less
Guardians' Eric Haase: Scooped up by Cleveland
The Guardians claimed Haase off waivers from the Tigers on Monday.
After Detroit moved him off its 40-man roster last week, Haase will stick within the American League Central and begin his second stint in the Guardians organization after he was drafted by Cleveland in 2011 before being traded to the Tigers in 2020. Haase has no minor-league options remaining, so he'll join the 26-man active roster and will step in as the new No. 2 catcher behind Bo Naylor while Cam Gallagher (concussion) and David Fry (hamstring) are on the injured list. Prior to being cut by the Tigers, Haase slashed an abysmal .201/.246/.284 over 282 plate appearances on the season.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eric Haase: Dropped from 40-man roster
Haase was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Saturday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
With Haase being dropped from the 40-man roster, Detroit signed Carson Kelly to a major-league contract Saturday. Haase has struggled to a .201 average with 13 extra-base hits, 26 RBI, 22 runs and three stolen bases over 264 at-bats in 86 games with the Tigers this year. The catcher will now either get claimed by another team, report to Triple-A Toledo or be released outright.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eric Haase: Sitting out afternoon game
Haase is not in the lineup for the first game of Friday's doubleheader versus the Guardians.
Jake Rogers will do the catching for Tarik Skubal in the afternoon contest. That makes it virtually guaranteed that Haase will be behind the plate for the nightcap with Matt Manning on the mound.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eric Haase: Retreats to bench Wednesday
Haase is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins.
Haase had started in three of the last four games -- two at catcher and one in left field -- but he'll head to the bench Wednesday as Jake Rogers and Akil Baddoo step in at those respective positions. The Tigers still appear to view Haase primarily as a catcher, and Rogers should remain the team's preferred option behind the plate given Haase's season-long struggles. Among the 275 players in the majors with at least 250 plate appearances this season, Haase ranks 274th with a 44 wRC+.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eric Haase: Sitting out Thursday
Haase is not in the lineup for Thursday's tilt versus the Rangers, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Haase started 12 of the Tigers' first 13 games against left-handers this season but has since been in the lineup just twice the last five times they've faced southpaws. After putting up a .778 OPS versus lefties in 2022, he's managed just a .522 OPS so far against them in 2023. Jake Rogers will catch Thursday and Matt Vierling will play left field.... See More ...

Tigers' Eric Haase: Takes seat Sunday
Haase is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.
Haase went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored Saturday, but he'll alternate at catcher with Jake Rogers, who slides into the lineup for the series finale. Haase can play in the outfield when he's not behind the plate, though he's started only once in the outfield this month.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eric Haase: Drives in three in win
Haase went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and three RBI in Wednesday's 9-4 win over the Royals.
Haase came in batting just .154 in June with only one multi-hit game this month, so the production was somewhat unexpected. The 30-year-old remains in a timeshare behind the plate with Jake Rogers, which limits the fantasy ceiling of both players. Haase did pop 14 home runs last season and 22 long balls in 2021, however, so the Tigers will likely continue to give him plenty of at-bats as he tries to get going.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eric Haase: Starting Sunday
Haase is starting at catcher and batting ninth in Sunday's game against the Twins.
After Jake Rogers got the start behind the plate Saturday, Haase will take over Sunday. Haase did appear as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning in the last contest. He's batting just .221 this season and only .188 in the month, making him a fairly uninspiring fantasy asset at the moment.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eric Haase: Not in Thursday's lineup
Haase is absent from the lineup for Thursday's game against the Twins.
Tigers manager A.J. Hinch has been siding with Jake Rogers at catcher lately, as Haase has started just two of the last seven games (one of which came in a doubleheader). Haase homered Wednesday but is just 4-for-36 over his last 40 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eric Haase: Goes deep Wednesday
Haase went 3-for-6 with a solo home run and two RBI across both games of Wednesday's doubleheader against Atlanta.
Haase started the first game and went 3-for-5 with his third home run of the season. He hit the bench for the second game, though he did appear as a pinch hitter. Haase continues to split time behind the plate with Jake Rogers and has limited fantasy appeal so long as he remains in a timeshare, though he can also play in the outfield on days when he doesn't catch....

Tigers' Eric Haase: Day off Monday
Haase is not in the starting lineup Monday versus Atlanta, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Haase will take a seat after he went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks. Jake Rogers will take over behind the plate and bat ninth in the series opener with Atlanta.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eric Haase: Returns to lineup
Haase is starting at catcher and batting sixth in Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.
Haase sat out the first two games of the series in favor of Jake Rogers but will return to the lineup Sunday. Neither player has been a consistent offensive performer, as Haase has just a .566 OPS, while Rogers is a bit better at .692 though he's batting only .167. Haase may be unable to separate himself from Rogers any time soon behind the plate, though he can also pick up some starts in the outfield, which gives a slight boost to his overall outlook....

Tigers' Eric Haase: Sitting Friday
Haase isn't starting Friday against the Diamondbacks.
Haase's slump at the plate has begun to cost him significant playing time, as he's been phased out of the picture in left field and DH while splitting starts behind the plate with Jake Rogers. Rogers will start Friday and bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eric Haase: Remains on bench
Haase will sit for the second straight game Saturday against Arizona.
Haase seemed to be moving ahead of Jake Rogers on the Tigers' catching depth chart, starting seven of 10 games during a stretch which ran from May 24 through June 3. In the six games since then, however, it's been Rogers who's started four times. Rogers has now made 33 starts behind the plate to Haase's 29 this season, but Haase still has more playing time overall thanks to his 10 starts in left field and two at designated hitter....

Tigers' Eric Haase: Out of lineup Tuesday
Haase is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Phillies.
Haase went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Monday's series opener at Philadelphia and holds a brutal .219/.283/.298 batting line on the year. Jake Rogers will catch and bat eighth for the Tigers on Tuesday night.... See More ... See Less
