  • Zack Collins: Elects free agency

    Collins elected to become a free agent Tuesday.

    The 28-year-old catcher played in only two major-league games this season with the Guardians and heads to the open market with a career .188/.300/.329 batting line across 465 total plate appearances at baseball's highest level.

  • Guardians' Zack Collins: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Collins cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday.

    Collins can elect free agency if he wants, but if he accepts the outright assignment he'll stick around in the Guardians organization as catching depth. The veteran backstop lost his roster spot earlier this week when the club claimed Eric Haase off waivers.

  • Guardians' Zack Collins: Booted off 40-man roster

    The Guardians designated Collins for assignment Monday.

    Collins will cede his spot on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster to Eric Haase, who was claimed off waivers from the Tigers and will replace Collins as the No. 2 catcher behind Bo Naylor. During his abbreviated stay with the Guardians, Collins appeared in two games and went 2-for-4 with a pair of walks. Collins will likely report back to Triple-A Columbus if he clears waivers.

  • Guardians' Zack Collins: Promoted from Triple-A

    Collins was promoted from Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    Collins will join a major-league roster for the first time this season. In the majors last year, the catcher hit .155 with a 38 percent strikeout rate in 36 games split between the Blue Jays and Pirates. In Triple-A Columbus this season, he is slashing .255/.364/.437. He will fill in for Cam Gallagher as Cleveland's backup catcher, who heads to the 7-day injured list with a concussion.

  • Guardians' Zack Collins: Sent to minor-league camp

    Collins was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

    A career .185/.295/.327 with poor defense behind the plate, Collins was always a long shot to break camp in the big leagues. With catcher of the future Bo Naylor waiting for his chance at the Triple-A level, it's hard to see a path for consistent at-bats in Cleveland for Collins.

  • Guardians' Zack Collins: Inks MiLB deal with Cleveland

    Collins signed a minor-league contract Thursday with the Guardians which includes an invitation to major-league spring training.

    Collins struggled to a .155/.231/.320 batting line in 36 major-league games last season between the Blue Jays and Pirates. The 28-year-old catcher seems unlikely to make the Cleveland's Opening Day roster since he sits firmly behind Mike Zunino and Bo Naylor on the depth chart.

  • Zack Collins: Parts ways with Pittsburgh

    Collins rejected an outright assignment to Triple-A Indianapolis and elected free agency Thursday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Collins was claimed off waivers by the Pirates in September but won't stick with the team through the offseason. He played in 36 games between Toronto and Pittsburgh last season and had a .155/.231/.320 slash line with four home runs and 11 RBI in 108 plate appearances.

  • Pirates' Zack Collins: Lands on injured list

    Collins was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a non-COVID-19 illness, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Collins was held out of the lineup the past couple days and will now miss the closing stretch of the season due to the ailment. The 27-year-old finishes 2022 with a .155/.231/.320 slash line, four home runs and 11 RBI in 36 games between the Pirates and Blue Jays.

  • Pirates' Zack Collins: Remains out of lineup

    Collins isn't starting Saturday against St. Louis.

    Collins is out of the lineup for a third consecutive game since left-hander Jordan Montgomery is on the mound for the Cardinals. Diego Castillo will take his place at first base and bat sixth.

  • Pirates' Zack Collins: Sitting out Friday

    Collins isn't starting Friday against the Cardinals.

  • Pirates' Zack Collins: Retreats to bench

    Collins isn't starting Wednesday against Cincinnati.

    Collins has been in the lineup for six of the last seven games, but he's gone 0-for-20 with a run, an RBI, three walks and eight strikeouts during that time. Ben Gamel will take over at first base and bat cleanup Wednesday.

  • Pirates' Zack Collins: Getting steady playing time

    Collins will start at first base and bat eighth in Monday's game against the Reds.

    Since his Sept. 13 call-up from Triple-A Indianapolis, Collins has settled into a strong-side platoon role at first base for the Pirates. The results haven't been particularly encouraging, however; Collins is off to a 1-for-19 start to his time in Pittsburgh.

  • Pirates' Zack Collins: Added to big-league roster

    Collins was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday.

    Collins was claimed off waivers from the Blue Jays on Sept. 7, and he will join the big club less than a week later. He primarily plays behind the plate, but with two other catchers on the roster, he could see action at first base and as the designated hitter from time to time.

  • Pirates' Zack Collins: Catches on with Bucs

    The Pirates claimed Collins off waivers from the Blue Jays and optioned him to Triple-A Indianapolis, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Collins joins his third organization after the White Sox previously shipped him to Toronto shortly before Opening Day. With Danny Jansen and Alejandro Kirk ahead of him in the pecking order at catcher in Toronto, Collins wasn't able to carve out consistent playing time, as he saw action in 26 games with the big club while slashing .194/.266/.417 in 79 plate appearances. Though Collins will report to Triple-A as he joins his new organization, the Pirates could give him a look at the big-league level before long. Neither of the two catchers on the 28-man active roster -- Jason Delay and Tyler Heineman -- profile as long-term solutions at the position.

  • Blue Jays' Zack Collins: Cast off 40-man roster

    Collins was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Monday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    Collins was sent to the minors in early August and will lose his spot not he 40-man roster just over a month later. It's possible that he'll remain in the organization if he clears waivers.

  • Blue Jays' Zack Collins: Optioned to Triple-A

    Collins was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    Collins spent over a month on the major-league roster but appeared in just four games and went 0-for-6 with two strikeouts. He'll head back to the minors with the Blue Jays activating their recent trade acquisitions.

  • Blue Jays' Zack Collins: Returns to majors

    Collins was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

    Collins has spent the past couple weeks in the minors but will join Toronto after Alejandro Kirk suffered a bruised left hand Friday. Kirk is in the lineup Saturday as the designated hitter, but Collins will provide depth at catcher behind Gabriel Moreno.

  • Blue Jays' Zack Collins: Optioned to Triple-A

    Collins was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Collins was called up from Buffalo earlier in the week, but he will head back to Buffalo with top prospect Gabriel Moreno ready to join the big club.

  • Blue Jays' Zack Collins: Slugs fourth homer

    Collins went 2-for-4 with a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Royals.

    Making his first start since being recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Collins took Brady Singer deep in the third inning for his fourth homer in only 73 big-league plate appearances this season. The 27-year-old's .212/.288/.455 slash line is less impressive, however, and playing time could be hard for him to come by with top prospect Gabriel Moreno also set to join the Blue Jays this weekend -- assuming Collins isn't the player optioned back down to make room.

  • Blue Jays' Zack Collins: Joins active roster

    Collins was called up by the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    Collins appeared in 20 games earlier in the year, showing a bit of power but not much else, as he hit .194/.278/.387 while striking out 40.6 percent of the time. With Danny Jansen out with a broken hand, Collins will return to serve as Alejandro Kirk's backup behind the plate.
