  • Cubs' Edwin Rios: Hits second spring home run

    Rios went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Rangers.

    Rios now has two home runs in 16 at-bats this spring to go along with a strong 1.118 OPS. The former Dodger is looking to secure a reserve role with the Cubs, and he could give Chicago some right-handed power off the bench. Rios is unlikely to have a ton of fantasy value as a backup, though an injury or two to the team's regulars could improve his outlook.

  • Cubs' Edwin Rios: Inks one-year deal with CHC

    Rios signed a one-year major-league contract Friday with the Cubs, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The deal is worth $1 million. Rios was non-tendered by the Dodgers back in November after logging only 92 plate appearances at the big-league level in 2022. He's shown impressive raw power at times, but the 28-year-old corner infielder will lug a career .219 batting average and .299 on-base percentage down to Cubs camp in Arizona. He'll likely serve as a bench bat that sees most of his playing time at third base, first base and DH.

  • Edwin Rios: Non-tendered by Dodgers

    The Dodgers declined to tender Rios a contract for 2023, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    President of baseball operations Andrew Friedman explained that the decision with Rios came down to "fit" on the roster with fellow lefty bats James Outman and Michael Busch having emerged on the 40-man roster. Rios has incredible raw power and posted some eye-popping batted-ball metrics in the minors, so he could be an interesting flier for a second-division team.

  • Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Activated and optioned

    The Dodgers reinstated Rios (hamstring) from the 60-day injured list Wednesday and optioned him to Triple-A Oklahoma City, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Tuesday marked the 20th and final day of Rios' rehab evaluation window in the minors, so the Dodgers were forced to activate him even though the team didn't have a spot on the 26-man active roster readily available. During his rehab assignment, Rios looked to be fully back in form after a prolonged absence due to a right hamstring strain, as he slashed .302/.387/.453 over a 14-game stint at Oklahoma City. Considering that Rios posted a strong .793 OPS in 92 plate appearances with the Dodgers prior to landing on the IL, he should be the top option for a promotion if the big club needs an extra position player at any point.

  • Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Set for lengthy rehab

    Rios (hamstring) will spend at least two weeks on his rehab assignment, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Rios began a rehab assignment with the Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday and has tallied three plate appearances since. He's still a few weeks away from a return, with mid-August looking like a realistic goal for his activation. Rios hit .244/.293/.500 across 92 plate appearances prior to going down, though it's not clear how he'll fit into the Dodgers' plans upon his return.

  • Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Ready for rehab assignment

    Rios (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.

    He's scheduled to start at third base and bat second for the Triple-A club in what will mark his first game action since the Dodgers placed him on the injured list June 3 due to a torn hamstring. Rios was later transferred to the 60-day IL and thus isn't eligible for activation until next week, but if he incurs no setbacks during his rehab assignment, he could be ready to rejoin the Dodgers in close to the minimum amount of time. Unless the Dodgers are willing to install Gavin Lux as their full-time left fielder and play Max Muncy at second base more regularly, Rios may not have a regular path to starts at third base or designated hitter once he's reinstated from the IL.

  • Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Rios (hamstring) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

    Rios sustained a right hamstring tear in early June and will be ineligible to return from the injured list until at least early August following Wednesday's transaction. A clear timetable for his return hasn't yet been revealed.

  • Dodgers' Edwin Rios: To IL with hamstring tear

    Rios was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a right hamstring tear that will not require surgery, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    This is a pretty serious injury and manager Dave Roberts said it would be "a handful of weeks" before Rios would return to action, per J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News. Rios suffered the injury Thursday while running to first base. Eddy Alvarez was added to the roster in his place.

  • Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Sitting Friday

    Rios is not in Friday's lineup against the Mets.

    Even with a righty (Chris Bassitt) on the hill for New York, Rios will head to the bench to make way for Zach McKinstry at designated hitter. Rios is hitting .250 with two home runs and 14 strikeouts over his last 10 games.

  • Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Not starting Wednesday

    Rios isn't starting Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Rios started in the last 10 games and hit .250 with three homers, five runs, five RBI and four walks. Justin Turner will serve as the designated hitter while Hanser Alberto starts at third base Wednesday.

  • Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Flashes power again Monday

    Rios went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to Pittsburgh.

    Rios slugged a solo homer to left field in the sixth inning for his seventh long ball of the season. Six of those home runs have come in his past 15 games, and he has collected 15 RBI over that span as his playing time has increased. However, Rios has also struck out 24 times across 57 at-bats in the 15-game stretch, and he fanned three times Monday.

  • Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Connects on three-run shot

    Rios went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run, a walk and two total runs in Friday's 6-4 win versus Arizona.

    After both teams failed to score in the first inning, Rios gave Los Angeles an early lead with his three-run shot to right field in the second. The long ball was his fifth over his past 12 games and sixth overall on the campaign. Rios' hot bat has led to him seeing more playing time of late, and he's slashing .311/.354/.667 across 12 contests since May 9. He should be locked into a near-everyday role while Max Muncy (elbow) is on the injured list.

  • Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Earns second straight start

    Rios will bat cleanup as the Dodgers' designated hitter in Monday's game against the Nationals.

    After smashing a solo home run and drawing two walks in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Phillies while starting in place of a resting Chris Taylor, Rios will stick in the lineup for a second straight game as the Dodgers open a three-game set in Washington. Justin Turner will be getting the day off to clear room in the lineup for Rios, who owns an excellent .935 OPS over a small sample of 48 plate appearances this season.

  • Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Goes deep Tuesday

    Rios went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks.

    Rios didn't play in Game 1 of the twin bill, but he started at DH in in the nightcap before moving to third base in the ninth inning. The slugger made the most of his lone hit, drilling a three-run homer to left field in the second inning. Rios has been swinging a hot bat of late, slashing .316/.316/.842 with three homers and 10 RBI over his past six games.

  • Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Drives in three

    Rios went 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI on Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Rios came to the plate with the bases loaded in the seventh inning and drove in all three runners with a double. He played in each of the team's three games in Pittsburgh and delivered two home runs, a double and seven RBI. With Chris Taylor (knee) back in action, Rios is likely to return to a minimal role, though he has shown the ability to produce when given the chance.

  • Dodgers' Edwin Rios: Slugs solo homer

    Rios hit a solo home run in his only at-bat in Monday's loss to the Pirates.

    The Dodgers managed only four hits in the contest and were on the verge of being shut out until Rios went deep to center field off David Bednar in the ninth inning. The long ball was Rios' second of the campaign. He hasn't had many opportunities to play thus far, logging just 25 plate appearances over Los Angeles' first 27 games.
