  • Tigers' Anthony Bemboom: Gets NRI from Tigers

    Bemboom signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Friday and received an invitation to major-league spring training, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Bemboom entered free agency in the offseason after two seasons with Baltimore, where he slashed .127/.225/.206 across 72 total plate appearances. Given Bemboom's poor major-league history, he likely won't offer the Tigers much more than organizational depth behind the dish.

  • Orioles' Anthony Bemboom: Remains in organization

    Bemboom cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

    Bemboom could have elected free agency, but he's accepted the outright assignment and will remain in the Orioles organization. The 33-year-old has a career .496 OPS over parts of five major-league seasons.

  • Orioles' Anthony Bemboom: Cut from 40-man roster

    Bemboom was designated for assignment Wednesday, Andy Kostka of TheBaltimoreBanner.com reports.

    Bemboom stuck around briefly as a third catcher following James McCann's return, but the Orioles have now decided they have a better use for the roster spot. Because he was already outrighted earlier this season, Bemboom can elect free agency if he wants, assuming he clears waivers again.

    Bemboom cleared waivers Thursday and accepted an assignment to Triple-A Norfolk, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

  • Orioles' Anthony Bemboom: Designated for assignment

    Bemboom was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Thursday.

    Baltimore kept three catchers around for a few days after James McCann returned from the injured list last weekend, but the team will now go back to the traditional two-catcher alignment. Bemboom will go through the waiver process, with the O's likely hoping he clears so he can stay around as depth at Triple-A Norfolk.

  • Orioles' Anthony Bemboom: Makes season-opening roster

    The Orioles selected Bemboom's contract from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.

    Bemboom appeared set to serve as organizational catching depth at Norfolk to open the season, but he'll end up serving as the No. 2 backstop behind Adley Rutschman after James McCann suffered an oblique strain late last week and was placed on the 10-day injured list. Until McCann is deemed ready to rejoin the big club, expect Bemboom to pick up only one or two starts per week behind the dish while Rutschman shoulders a heavy workload.

    Bemboom was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Friday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

  • Orioles' Anthony Bemboom: Gets deal with O's for 2022

    Bemboom signed a one-year split contract with the Orioles on Wednesday, Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    The deal allows Bemboom to compete for a spot as a backup catcher on the Orioles' Opening Day roster while giving him some extra money if he ends up opening the season at Triple-A Norfolk. The 32-year-old Bemboom saw action in 22 games with Baltimore in 2022, slashing .115/.207/.212 across 59 plate appearances.

  • Orioles' Anthony Bemboom: Added to 40-man roster

    Bemboom had his contract selected by the Orioles on Thursday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Bemboom was designated for assignment by the Orioles in late May and spent the rest of the campaign at Triple-A Norfolk, where he posted a .228/.292/.350 slash line in 34 games. The 32-year-old was scheduled to become a minor-league free agent during the offseason, but the move to the 40-man roster will keep him with the organization for now.

  • Orioles' Anthony Bemboom: Designated for assignment

    Bemboom was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Saturday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Bemboom saw sporadic playing time with the Orioles, and he hit just .115 with a homer, two doubles, four runs and an RBI over 22 games. He'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster after Adley Rutschman's contract was selected Saturday.

  • Orioles' Anthony Bemboom: Knocks first homer

    Bemboom went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Cardinals.

    Bemboom hasn't done much with his playing time as backup to Robinson Chirinos. The home run Thursday was Bemboom's first of the season, and he's added two doubles among his six hits. It accounted for his first RBI as well. The catcher is slashing .140/.229/.256 through 49 plate appearances.

  • Orioles' Anthony Bemboom: Gets start in day game

    Bemboom will start at catcher and bat eighth in Thursday's game against the Yankees, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    No. 1 backstop Robinson Chirinos started behind the plate in the previous three games, but he'll get Thursday off in what amounts to a routine maintenance day. Chirinos' absence paves the way for Bemboom to enter the lineup for the seventh time this season. The 32-year-old has gone 3-for-20 with a double and three walks on the campaign.

  • Orioles' Anthony Bemboom: Wins backup catcher role

    Bemboom has made the Orioles' Opening Day roster, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.

    Manager Brandon Hyde has selected Bemboom to be the primary backup at catcher behind Robinson Chirinos to open the season. This marks the first time that the 32-year-old has made an Opening Day roster, largely earning it by posting a .308 average this spring in 13 at-bats. With star prospect Adley Rutschman (triceps) currently unavailable, Bemboom should receive his fair-share of reps early in 2022.

    Bemboom (illness) went 0-for-2 in Saturday's 14-5 win over the Pirates.

    Bemboom was sidelined for a couple of days due to an illness, but it was never expected to be a long-term issue. The 32-year-old catcher will continue to compete for a spot on the big-league roster, with Robinson Chirinos, Jacob Nottingham and Beau Taylor also in the mix while Adley Rutschman (triceps) works his way back from injury.

  • Orioles' Anthony Bemboom: Dealing with illness

    Bemboom was scratched from Thursday's Grapefruit Lineup against the Red Sox due to an illness, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

    The Orioles didn't initially provide a reason for Bemboom's removal from the lineup, but it's unlikely that his illness will lead to a significant absence. Assuming the illness isn't related to COVID-19, the catcher should be considered day-to-day.

    Bemboom was removed from Thursday's Grapefruit League lineup against Boston for an unspecified reason, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

  • Dodgers' Anthony Bemboom: Claimed by Dodgers

    Bemboom was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers on Monday.

    There's been a shuffling of third catchers in Los Angeles. Bemboom was designated for assignment by the Angels on Saturday after the team claimed Chad Wallach off waivers from the Dodgers, but he'll now occupy Wallach's previous role in the Dodgers' organization. His career .178/.241/.287 slash line indicates the Dodgers won't want to use him in anything other than an organizational depth role.
