Top Bligh Madris News

  • Astros' Bligh Madris: Traded to Astros

    Madris was acquired by the Astros from Detroit on Tuesday in exchange for cash considerations.

    Roughly two weeks after being DFA'd by Detroit, Madris will now join the Astros' 40-man roster. The 26-year-old outfielder got his first taste of MLB action last season, though he posted just a .509 OPS through 123 plate appearances. Considering the outfield talent Houston already has at the MLB level, Madris will likely start the 2023 season in Triple-A and serve as organizational depth.

  • Tigers' Bligh Madris: Cast off 40-man roster

    Madris was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Wednesday.

    Madris was claimed off waivers by the Tigers in mid-November after being designated for assignment by Tampa Bay, but he'll be cast off the 40-man roster after Detroit claimed Mario Feliciano off waivers from the Brewers on Wednesday. It wouldn't be surprising to see Madris remain in the organization if he goes unclaimed on waivers.

  • Tigers' Bligh Madris: Claimed by Detroit

    The Tigers claimed Madris off waivers from the Rays on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Madris tried his best to make a name for himself during his brief time in the Rays organization (1.053 OPS, four homers in 10 games with Triple-A Durham), but it wasn't enough. The Tigers have decided to take a chance and will add Madris to the 40-man roster. The 26-year-old infielder figures to compete for a utility role in spring training.

  • Rays' Bligh Madris: Designated for assignment

    Madris was designated for assignment by the Rays on Tuesday.

    Madris was claimed off waivers by Tampa Bay in mid-September but never saw game action with the team. He played in 39 contests for the Pirates before he was waived and had a .177/.244/.265 slash line in 123 plate appearances.

  • Rays' Bligh Madris: Claimed by Rays

    Madris was claimed off waivers by the Rays on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. He will report to Triple-A Durham.

    The Pirates designated Madris for assignment earlier this week, but the Rays apparently see something they like. He slashed .294/.366/.482 with seven home runs, four steals and a 0.46 BB/K in 71 games at Triple-A this season but struggled with a .177 batting average and one home run in 123 plate appearances in the majors.

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Removed from 40-man roster

    Madris was designated for assignment Tuesday.

    The Pirates optioned Madris to Triple-A Indianapolis in late August, and they ultimately decided to remove him from the 40-man roster.

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Optioned to Indianapolis

    Madris was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Monday.

    Madris posted just a .345 OPS over 24 games after being recalled by the Pirates in late July, so the club decided to send him back down to iron some things out. If he is able to he could return to the majors before the campaign comes to a close.

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Not in Friday's lineup

    Madris isn't starting Friday against the Phillies.

    Madris has lost out on some playing time recently and will be on the bench for a third consecutive game. Michael Chavis is starting at first base and batting cleanup.

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Sits against righty

    Madris is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta.

    The lefty-hitting Madris sat out two of the past three games when the Pirates faced southpaws, but he'll be on the bench Wednesday with a right-hander (Kyle Wright) taking the hill for Atlanta. Madris still appears to have a hold on a strong-side platoon role at the position, as manager Derek Shelton likely just wanted to give the lightly-used Josh VanMeter some work in the series finale. VanMeter hadn't appeared in a game for the Pirates since Aug. 16.

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: On bench against lefty

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Sits versus lefty

    Madris is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.

    With lefty Mike Minor taking the hill, the lefty-hitting Madris will give way to the righty-hitting Michael Chavis at first base. Madris had started in each of the past five games, going 2-for-14 with a walk and two runs.

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Heads back to bench

    Madris will sit Friday against the Giants.

    Madris briefly appeared to be stepping into a starting role, but that's less clear now, as he's been on the bench for three of the last four games. His .190/.253/.286 slash line in 91 trips to the plate this season certainly doesn't look like starting material.

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Sitting again Wednesday

    Madris is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Jody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports.

    Madris is 2-for-15 with four walks and two runs through eight games in August and will take a seat for the second straight contest Wednesday. Bryan Reynolds will rest his legs as the designated hitter while Greg Allen receives a start in center field.

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Takes seat Tuesday

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Out of lineup

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Getting steady run

    Madris will serve as the Pirates' designated hitter and No. 5 batter in Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

    He'll get his fourth start in the last five games despite having gone hitless in 12 at-bats since getting called up from Triple-A Indianapolis last Thursday. Though the Pirates have fully embraced their rebuild and are handing several rookies steady playing time of late, Madris will still likely need to show some signs of progress at the plate to ensure he sticks in a near-everyday role for the duration of the campaign.

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Scores once in return

    Madris went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Thursday against the Phillies.

    Madris was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis to take the roster spot of Bryan Reynolds (personal) and started in right field while hitting fifth. He doesn't have the same pedigree as other Pirates prospects vying for playing time in the outfield, and Madris has a mediocre .246/.283/.386 slash line across his first 60 plate appearances in the majors. He has multiple paths to playing time though, as he will also get looks at first base, per Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Called up Thursday

    Madris was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday.

    The 26-year-old was sent down in early July but will rejoin the Pirates as outfield depth after Bryan Reynolds (personal) was placed on the paternity list Thursday. Madris has slashed .259/.286/.407 with a homer, six RBI, five runs and two stolen bases over 15 major-league games this year.

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Sent to minors

    Madris was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.

    Madris was promoted from Indianapolis on June 20 and played hit well early in his first taste of big-league action, but he's now been sent down after striking out 11 times during a 3-for-24 slump. The 26-year-old's playing time decreased once Ben Gamel (hamstring) returned from the injured list earlier this week.

  • Pirates' Bligh Madris: Not starting Wednesday

    Madris is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees.

    The 26-year-old finds himself on the bench for the second straight contest after Ben Gamel (hamstring) was activated from the injured list Tuesday. Madris is 3-for-20 with a double, a stolen base and nine strikeouts in his past five contests.
