Padres' Adam Engel: Placed on 10-day IL

Padres' Adam Engel: Headed to IL with hamstring injury
Engel is expected to begin the season on the injured list due to a hamstring injury he suffered Thursday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Engel dealt with a calf strain early on in camp and has been plagued by hamstring problems the last few years. It's not clear at this point how long this one might sideline him, but he might have been in line for some playing time early with Fernando Tatis (suspension) unavailable for the first few weeks and Juan Soto (oblique) potentially sidelined as well....

Padres' Adam Engel: Set for spring debut
Engel (calf) will bat eighth and play left field Saturday against the White Sox.
Engel had been sitting out of spring action due to a right calf strain. Barring setbacks, he should still have time to build up by Opening Day. He should serve as the Padres' fourth or fifth outfielder this season.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Adam Engel: Sidelined by calf strain
Engel has yet to make a Cactus League appearance due to a strained right calf, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
It's not clear when Engel might be cleared for game action, but given that he derives most of his value from his legs, the Padres surely will proceed cautiously. If healthy, Engel is expected to operate as an extra outfielder for the Friars.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Adam Engel: Receives one-year deal with Padres
Engel signed a one-year contract with the Padres on Jan. 6.
Engel was non-tendered by the White Sox earlier this offseason but has managed to land another major-league contract. The 31-year-old brings good defense and speed to the table, although he hasn't been able to put either to as much use as he'd like the last couple years due to a multitude of hamstring problems. Engel figures to back up at all three outfield spots and could see some starts against left-handed pitching.... See More ... See Less
Adam Engel: Denied contract for 2023
The White Sox declined to tender Engel a contract for 2023, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Known primarily as a defensive specialist, Engel put together a couple surprisingly-good offensive season in 2020 and 2021 before his performance at the dish cratered in 2022 (.579 OPS). Given his ability to play all three outfield spots, Engel figures to draw some interest in free agency.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Adam Engel: Steals 12th bag
Engel entered Monday's 3-2 win over Seattle as a pinch runner and recorded a stolen base
Engel entered the game as a pinch runner for Andrew Vaughn in the eighth inning and proceeded to steal third base -- his 12th stolen bag of the season. Engel is buried on the outfield depth chart when both Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert are available, and he has maintained only a .598 OPS across 225 plate appearances on the season when given an opportunity....

White Sox's Adam Engel: Swipes 11th base
Engel went 0-for-4 with a stolen base in a 5-3 win Sunday over Detroit.
Engel reached on a force out and stole second base in the second. It was his 11th stolen base in 13 attempts this season. Sunday was just his third start in the last 18 contests. Since the All-Star break, the 30-year-old is 3-for-28 with 13 strikeouts. For the season his slash line has dropped to .235/.286/.337, and he has become mostly a late-inning defensive replacement for the White Sox.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Adam Engel: Not starting Saturday
Engel isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Athletics.
Engel has gone 2-for-14 with two runs, a steal and seven strikeouts since the All-Star break and is on the bench for a third consecutive game. AJ Pollock is starting in center field and batting third.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Adam Engel: On bench Wednesday
Engel isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Rockies.
Engel has gone 2-for-14 with two runs, a stolen base and seven strikeouts over five games since the All-Star break and is getting a breather Wednesday. Leury Garcia is starting in center field and batting eighth.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Adam Engel: Posts 10th steal
Engel went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Rockies.
Engel got aboard with a single in the seventh inning. He then stole second -- his 10th theft of the year -- and scored what would be the game-winning run on a Yoan Moncada double. Engel has gone a paltry 2-for-14 with seven strikeouts in five games since the All-Star break, so his grip on regular playing time is likely getting a bit thin. The veteran outfielder owns a .247/.297/.357 slash line with two home runs, 14 RBI and 26 runs scored through 195 plate appearances. Engel should still be the White Sox's preferred center fielder until Luis Robert (head) returns.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Adam Engel: Not starting Game 2
Engel isn't starting the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against Cleveland.
Engel started Saturday's matinee and went 0-for-2 with a strikeout. He'll get a breather for the second game while AJ Pollock starts in center field and bats seventh.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Adam Engel: Seeing extra opportuntiy
Engel went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored Sunday against the Twins.
Engel picked up 13 at-bats across the White Sox's four-game set with the Twins due to Luis Robert's (head) absence. Engel took advantage by collecting seven hits while also tallying a homer, four RBI and three runs scored. His primary value has come from stolen bases this season -- he has nine across 68 games -- and he could remain a consistent part of the lineup so long as Robert is sidelined.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Adam Engel: Tallies second homer
Engel went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer Friday against the Twins.
Engel entered the game after Luis Robert was forced out due to lightheadedness. Engel took advantage of the opportunity, slugging his second homer of the season in his final plate appearance of the game. He is rarely in the starting lineup when the White Sox are fully healthy, but Engel would be the likely beneficiary if Robert remains sidelined.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Adam Engel: Scores run in return
Engel (hamstring) drew a walk and scored a run in Monday's 6-3 extra-inning loss to the Twins. He was also caught stealing once.
Engel missed 11 days with the hamstring strain. He entered the contest as a pinch runner for Gavin Sheets in the seventh inning, but Engel got caught between second and third base when the Twins turned an 8-5 triple play. The 30-year-old outfielder had another baserunning mistake when he was caught stealing (on a review) to end the ninth. Engel is likely to see a limited role now that he's healthy again, though the righty hitter could push the lefty-hitting Sheets for playing time in right field. Engel has a .240/.302/.349 slash line with nine stolen bases, a home run, 10 RBI and 19 runs scored through 159 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
