  • Pirates' Josh Palacios: Catches on with Bucs organization

    The Pirates selected Palacios in the second round of the minor-league phase of the Rule 5 draft last week.

    Palacios slashed .213/.245/.255 over 49 plate appearances in the big leagues with the Nationals in 2022 before he was outrighted off the 40-man roster earlier this month. With Washington choosing not to protect the 27-year-old outfielder in the Rule 5 draft, Pittsburgh opted to roll the dice on him. He'll likely head to Triple-A Indianapolis to begin the upcoming campaign.

He is expected to be available for Saturday's game in San Diego.

  • Nationals' Josh Palacios: Optioned to minors

    Palacios was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Sunday.

  • Nationals' Josh Palacios: Back in lineup

    Palacios will start in right field and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Phillies.

    Though he'll enter the lineup in place of a resting Victor Robles in the series finale, the lefty-hitting Palacios was on the bench for the previous two contests against a righty (Kyle Gibson) and a lefty (Ranger Suarez). Palacios may have been supplanted by Lane Thomas as the Nationals' preferred option in right field.

  • Nationals' Josh Palacios: Garners third straight start

    Palacios will start in right field and bat seventh in Thursday's game against the Phillies.

    Palacios will pick up his third start in as many games and looks bound to receive the first chance to replace the departed Juan Soto as the Nationals' everyday right fielder following Tuesday's trade that sent the superstar to San Diego. After striking out twice in three at-bats in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Mets, Palacios singled twice and scored in Wednesday's 9-5 loss in the series finale.

  • Blue Jays' Josh Palacios: Dispatched to minors

    The Blue Jays optioned Palacios to their minor-league camp Monday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

    Palacios was one of 15 players sent to minor-league camp Monday in the Jays' latest round of roster cuts. The 26-year-old received 42 plate appearances over 13 games at the big-league level in 2021, and unless Toronto endures a spate of injuries in the outfield, Palacios is unlikely to see extended action with the parent club in 2022.

  • Blue Jays' Josh Palacios: Back in action at Triple-A

    Palacios (hand) has gone 3-for-12 with three runs scored since returning from the 7-day injured list and rejoining the Triple-A Buffalo lineup Friday.

    Palacios was on the shelf for nearly three months with the hand injury before beginning a rehab assignment in the lower levels of the minors Aug. 5. After checking out fine over his three rehab games, Palacios was activated from the IL ahead of Buffalo's weekend series with Rochester. The 26-year-old outfielder will look to put together a string of quality games at Buffalo over the next two weeks to build his case for a September call-up to the Blue Jays.

  • Blue Jays' Josh Palacios: Rehabbing in FCL

    Palacios (hand) began a rehab assignment with the Blue Jays' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate Aug. 5 and has appeared in two games, going 2-for-4 with a double and four walks between the contests.

    Palacios remains on Triple-A Buffalo's 7-day injured list while he works his way back to full health following a three-month shutdown due to a hand injury. The early returns from his rehab assignment in the FCL have been favorable, and he could be bumped up to a higher-level affiliate in the upcoming days before eventually rejoining Buffalo.
