Angels' Ehire Adrianza: Catches on with Halos
Adrianza agreed to a minor-league contract with the Angels on Friday that includes an invite to major-league spring training, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Registerreports.
Adrianza spent 2023 with Atlanta but was on the injured list for much of the season with elbow and shoulder injuries. He tallied just 41 plate appearances between Triple-A and the majors, going 4-for-38.... See More ... See Less
Ehire Adrianza: Elects free agency
Adrianza elected free agency Monday, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Adrianza cleared waivers after being removed from Atlanta's 40-man roster last week and will now get an early start to free agency. The utility player missed a large chunk of the 2023 season with elbow and shoulder injuries but his versatility will be appealing to some teams, albeit probably on a minor-league deal....

Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Activated, loses roster spot
Atlanta reinstated Adrianza (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list and designated him for assignment Monday, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
With Triple-A Gwinnett's season coming to an end Sunday, Adrianza's minor-league rehab assignment simultaneously concluded. Over an 11-game stint with Gwinnett, Adrianza batted just .152, and though he's seemingly healthy again, Atlanta didn't have room for him on its roster. Atlanta will proceed with Nicky Lopez and Luke Williams as its primary utility men for the final week of the regular season.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Moves rehab to Triple-A
Adrianza (elbow/shoulder) shifted his rehab assignment Tuesday from High-A Rome to Triple-A Gwinnett.
Adrianza went 1-for-5 with a double and two walks during his three-game stay in the South Atlantic League and is now just one step away from returning to Atlanta's active major-league roster. The veteran utility infielder has been out since early May due to elbow and shoulder injuries.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Starting rehab assignment
Adrianza (elbow/shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Rome on Tuesday.
Adrianza has been sidelined since early May, initially going down with an elbow injury before later hurting his shoulder. He's finally game-ready now, and he'll look to rejoin Atlanta in a utility role later this month once he completes his rehab assignment.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Moved to 60-day IL
Adrianza was transferred to the 60-day injured list by Atlanta on Friday with a left shoulder strain.
Adrianza had been set to return from his right elbow injury soon but evidently must have hurt his shoulder while on a rehab assignment. He now won't be eligible for activation until early July.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: On track for weekend return
Adrianza (elbow) appears on track to be activated from the injured list this weekend, Grant McAuley of 929 The Game reports.
Braden Shewmake was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday, during a scheduled off day for Atlanta, and it looks like Adrianza's activation could be the corresponding move Friday. Out since May 5 due to right elbow inflammation, the veteran utility infielder has gone 5-for-14 (.357) with four RBI through four rehab games at High-A Rome.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Launching rehab assignment
Adrianza (elbow) will start his rehab assignment with High-A Rome on Thursday.
Adrianza went on the 10-day injured list with right elbow inflammation May 5 and will now start the process of returning to the big leagues. With the 33-year-old eligible to be reinstated Friday, the rehab assignment will likely be a short one. Adrianza has gone hitless over 10 at-bats with Atlanta in 2023, operating as a backup option in both the infield and outfield.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Goes to IL with elbow injury
Adrianza was placed on the 10-day injured list by Atlanta on Friday with right elbow inflammation.
The move is retroactive to May 2, so Adrianza will be eligible to return when Atlanta begins a road trip May 12. Braden Shewmake has taken his spot on the roster.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Officially joins big-league roster
Adrianza had his contract selected by Atlanta on Thursday.
The 33-year-old earned a spot on Atlanta's Opening Day roster and has now officially been added to the 26-man and 40-man rosters. Adrianza will fill a utility role and begins the season as the primary backup option at second base, shortstop and third base.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Opening year in utility role
Adrianza will begin the season as Atlanta's primary utility infielder.
The decision to send both Vaughn Grissom and Braden Shewmake to Triple-A Gwinnett was in part prompted by the team's desire to have maximum middle infield depth, which means (eventually) adding Adrianza to the 40-man roster and keeping him on the big-league bench rather than letting him go. The 33-year-old switch hitter saw time at second base, third base, shortstop and left field in 2022, but his .470 OPS over 110 plate appearances between Atlanta and the Nationals -- the second time in the last three seasons he's posted a sub-.600 OPS -- doesn't exactly suggest he would have been hard to replace. If Orlando Arcia gets replaced as the starting shortstop by either Shewmake or Grissom, he would presumably take Adrianza's utility role and bump him to the waiver wire.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Back in Atlanta as NRI
Adrianza signed a minor-league contract with Atlanta on Friday, which includes an invitation to spring training, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Adrianza was a decent super utility guy for the team in 2021 and Atlanta wound up re-acquiring him at the 2022 trade deadline from the Nationals. It seems manager Brian Snitker has an affinity for the 33-year-old, although Atlanta will hope it doesn't have to use him too much in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Activated by Atlanta
Adrianza (quadriceps) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.
Adrianza missed the last week and a half due to a left quadriceps strain but will rejoin Atlanta after a minimal stay on the injured list. He's unlikely to see significant playing time as a utility man now that he's healthy.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Placed on injured list
Adrianza was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left quadriceps strain Friday.
Adrianza returned from the injured list in late August but saw minimal playing time while serving as a utility man over the last few weeks. He's dealing with a quad issue that will keep him out for at least a week and a half, and it's possible that he won't have a spot on Atlanta's active roster once he's fully healthy after Ozzie Albies (foot) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Friday....

Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Comes off IL
Atlanta reinstated Adrianza (illness) from the 10-day injured list Monday.
The club designated infielder Ryan Goins for assignment to clear room on the active roster for Adrianza, who should step back in as Atlanta's top utility infielder. The role is unlikely to translate to steady playing time for Adrianza, who is expected to play sparingly while Atlanta leans heavily on the likes of Dansby Swanson, Vaughn Grissom and Austin Riley in the infield as the team aims to chase down the Mets for the National League East crown.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Ready for rehab assignment
Adrianza (illness) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Gwinnett.
Since Adrianza has been on the IL for less than a week, he likely won't need more than one or two games in the minors to get comfortable at the plate and in the field. Adrianza will be eligible for activation Saturday and should replace Ryan Goins as Atlanta's top utility man once he rejoins the roster.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Ehire Adrianza: Transferred to 10-day IL
Adrianza was transferred from the COVID-19 injured list to the 10-day injured list due to a viral infection Monday, retroactive to Aug. 12.
Adrianza landed on the COVID-19 IL last week but will be forced to miss at least a week and a half after being diagnosed with a viral infection. Since the move was backdated, he'll be eligible to return as early as Aug. 22.... See More ... See Less
