  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Moved to Triple-A

    Kansas City optioned Fermin to Triple-A Omaha on Wednesday.

    With Kansas City expected to go with Salvador Perez and MJ Melendez as its lone options at catcher to begin the season, Fermin will miss out on a spot on the Opening Day roster. Fermin performed well in the Cactus League with a .906 OPS in 25 plate appearances before the demotion, and if either Melendez or Perez is to miss time at any point, Fermin will likely be the first catcher called on as a replacement.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Doing well in spring

    Fermin is 5-for-13 with a home run, two doubles, four RBI and three runs scored over eight Cactus League games.

    Fermin was added to the Royals' 40-man roster in November, so he has a clearer path to the majors if he can hold onto that status. He could still begin the season at Triple-A Omaha, as Salvador Perez and MJ Melendez will handle the vast majority of the catching duties for Kansas City this season. If either of them gets hurt, Fermin would likely be called upon to serve as a backup option behind the dish.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Added to 40-man roster

    The Royals selected Fermin's contract Tuesday.

    He made his big-league debut this past season, but only played in three games. The 27-year-old catcher will serve as Kansas City's third catcher on the depth chart. He hit .270/.365/.480 with 15 home runs in 87 games at Triple-A.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Strong week at Triple-A

    Fermin was named the International League Player of the Week on Monday.

    Fermin was a force for Triple-A Omaha. In six games versus Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the catcher delivered six home runs, 12 RBI and nine runs scored, batting .368 (7-for-19). The impressive week nearly doubled his power output for the year -- he's up to 13 homers, 47 RBI, 34 runs scored and a .274/.376/.511 slash line through 68 contests at the Triple-A level. He's still no higher than fourth on the Royals' organizational catching depth chart.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Heads back to Triple-A

    The Royals returned Fermin to Triple-A Omaha following Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Since Fermin joined the Royals as a replacement for one of the 10 players who were placed on the restricted list prior to Thursday's series opener in Toronto, he won't be exposed to waivers even while he comes off the 40-man roster as he heads back to Omaha. Fermin started behind the plate in the last two games of the series with the Blue Jays, going 0-for-7 with a run scored.

  • Royals' Freddy Fermin: Rises to big leagues

    The Royals selected Fermin's contract from Triple-A Omaha on Thursday.

    Fermin and fellow catcher Sebastian Rivero were summoned from the minors in advance of the Royals' four-game series in Toronto since Kansas City will be without backstops MJ Melendez and Cam Gallagher, who were both placed on the restricted list due to their vaccination statuses and aren't eligible to cross the Canadian border. Though Fermin had been playing with the Royals' top affiliate in Omaha, it'll be Rivero -- who had been playing at Double-A Northwest Arkansas -- who catches for starting pitcher Angel Zerpa in the series opener.
