White Sox's Jake Marisnick: Won't make Opening Day roster
Marisnick was reassigned to minor-league camp by the White Sox on Monday, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Marisnick will not be a part of the Opening Day roster after signing a minor-league deal with the White Sox near the beginning of January. The veteran outfielder will likely start the 2023 season with Triple-A Charlotte, and the White Sox will need to add him to the 40-man roster in order to be promoted.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jake Marisnick: Invited to White Sox camp
Marisnick signed with the White Sox as a non-roster invitee Friday, Kenny Van Doren of Inside Astros reports.
Marisnick appeared in just 31 games for the Pirates last season, hitting .234/.272/.390. He missed time with thumb and toe injuries. The veteran outfielder hasn't done much at the plate throughout his career, but his defense has typically been strong enough to earn him a bench spot with occasional starts against lefties....

Braves' Jake Marisnick: Links up with Atlanta
Atlanta signed Marisnick (toe) to a minor-league contract Aug. 30 and was assigned to Triple-A Gwinnett.
After being released by the Pirates on Aug. 7, Marisnick was on the open market for just over three weeks before he found a new organization. Since he signed with Atlanta prior to September, Marisnick will be eligible for the playoffs, should he be added to the 40-man roster and 28-man active roster at any point in the weeks to come. Prior to being cut loose by Pittsburgh, Marisnick had been sidelined with a right big toe sprain, but the veteran outfielder debuted Saturday for Gwinnett and appears to be fully healthy again....

Jake Marisnick: Cut loose by Bucs
The Pirates released Marisnick (toe) on Sunday, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.
Marisnick wasn't believed to be close to returning from the injured list after he was deactivated July 25 with a right big toe sprain, and as a veteran on an expiring deal, the rebuilding Pirates didn't have much incentive to keep him on the 40-man roster. Pittsburgh cut Marisnick loose to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for infielder Kevin Padlo, whom the organization claimed off waivers from the Mariners and optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis....

Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Confined to walking boot
Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Thursday that Marisnick (toe) will remain in his walking boot for another week or so, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports
Tomczyk's update implies that Marisnick will be sidelined for beyond the minimum 10 days after he was placed on the injured list Monday with a right big toe sprain. Marisnick's absence should open up more opportunities in the outfield for Cal Mitchell and Greg Allen.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Placed on 10-day injured list
Marisnick was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right great toe sprain Monday.
Marisnick sat out Sunday against the Marlins and was seen with a walking boot on his right foot prior to Monday's series opener against the Cubs. It's not yet clear how much time Marisnick is expected to miss, but he'll likely see a slight decrease in playing time upon his return if Bryan Reynolds remains with the team after the trade deadline....

Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Takes seat Saturday
Marisnick isn't starting Saturday against Miami.
Marisnick started the last eight games and slashed .357/.400/.714 with two homers, four doubles, five RBI, four runs and a stolen base. He'll get a breather Saturday while Greg Allen starts in center field and bats second.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Hitting well since return
Marisnick went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI on Sunday against the Rockies.
Marisnick has been in the lineup for all seven games since being activated from the injured list. Though he's known primarily for his glove, Marisnick has gone 10-for-25 with two homers, five RBI and four runs scored in the same seven-game span. So long as Bryan Reynolds (oblique) is sidelined, Marisnick appears to have a clear path to playing time in the Pittsburgh outfield.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Garners fourth consecutive start
Marisnick will start in center field and bat seventh in Thursday's game against the Marlins.
Marisnick will pick up his fourth start in as many games since he returned from the 60-day injured list Monday. The righty-hitting Marisnick has benefited from the Pirates opposing three lefty starters during that stretch, but he was also included in the lineup during Wednesday's 5-4 loss, when right-hander Pablo Lopez took the hill for Miami. Marisnick looks like he may get a full-time look from the Pirates while Bryan Reynolds (oblique) and Greg Allen (hamstring) are on the IL through at least the All-Star break.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Pops second homer
Marisnick went 1-for-3 with his second home run of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Marlins.
His third-inning blast off Daniel Castano was only Marisnick's second homer of the season, but both have come in the last two games after he made his return to the lineup from a thumb injury. The 31-year-old carries a .200/.241/.364 slash line through 24 games on the season, but he'll likely continues to see consistent playing time as long as he's producing.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Homers, steals base
Marisnick (thumb) went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer, a double, two runs scored, a walk and a stolen base in Monday's 5-1 win over Miami.
Marisnick stuffed the stat sheet in his first MLB appearance in over two months due to thumb surgery. He started with a walk, a steal and a run scored in the second inning followed by a double in the fourth. He capped his night off with a two-run shot in the ninth. It was just his second multi-hit game of the year and first since April 10. Marisnick is slashing .192/.236/.308 with four extra-base hits through 23 games.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Activated, starting Monday
Marisnick (thumb) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Monday. He'll start in center field and bat eighth in the Pirates' series opener in Miami.
Marisnick underwent surgery in early May to address UCL damage in his left thumb, but he'll rejoin the active roster after missing just over two months. He recently appeared in seven rehab games and hit .250 with two doubles, two runs, two walks and 13 strikeouts. Bryan Reynolds (oblique) was placed on the 10-day IL as part of a corresponding move, and the righty-hitting Marisnick will likely fill out the shorter side of a platoon in center field while Reynolds is on the shelf....

Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Kicks off rehab assignment
Marisnick (thumb) went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts Tuesday in his first rehab game with Triple-A Indianapolis.
Marisnick returned to action for the first time since May 9 after a prolonged recovery from thumb surgery. The 31-year-old also tested positive for the coronavirus just over a week ago and was placed on the COVID-19-related injured list, but he's since reverted to the 60-day IL. As a result of the transaction, Marisnick won't be eligible for activation until next weekend at the soonest, even though he shouldn't need that much time to regain his timing at the plate. He's expected to serve as a depth outfielder for the big club once reinstated.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Close to rehab assignment
Marisnick (thumb) will likely begin a rehab assignment next week, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Marisnick has been sidelined since early May while recovering from thumb surgery and landed on the COVID-19 injured list Monday. It doesn't appear as though his shift to the COVID-19 IL will impact his progress in his recovery, as he'll likely be able to return to game action in the minors next week. Given the length of his absence, Marisnick will likely need to appear in several rehab games prior to rejoining the Pirates.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Shifts to COVID-19 injured list
Marisnick (thumb) was transferred to the COVID-19 injured list Monday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Ramping up from thumb surgery
Pirates director of sports medicine Todd Tomczyk said Marisnick (thumb) is building up his post-surgery pain tolerance, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.
Marisnick is testing his surgically repaired left thumb by gripping a bat and catching the ball, among other activities, but he's not yet swinging or playing the outfield. He's likely at least a couple weeks away from making his return from the 10-day injured list.... See More ... See Less
Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Slightly ahead of schedule in rehab
The Pirates announced Wednesday that Marisnick (thumb) has received full clearance to resume "advanced gripping activities, more specific to baseball activities," Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.
The team added that Marisnick is a bit ahead of schedule in his recovery from May 12 surgery on his left thumb. Following the procedure, Marisnick was projected to remain sidelined for 4-to-6 weeks before resuming baseball activities, but a return from the 10-day injured list in mid-June now looks to be a realistic outcome for the 30-year-old....

Pirates' Jake Marisnick: Gets 4-to-6-week recovery timeline
Marisnick underwent surgery Thursday to address UCL damage to his left thumb and is expected to remain out for 4-to-6 weeks before resuming baseball activities, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports.
Once he's cleared for activities, Marisnick will likely need to put in several workouts before heading out on a minor-league rehab assignment, so he won't be a realistic candidate to return from the 10-day injured list until late June or early July. Marisnick's absence leaves the Pirates without an obvious fourth outfielder, which could result in lefty-hitting starters Ben Gamel and Jack Suwinski playing more regularly against southpaws....
