  • Athletics' Conner Capel: Notches first career steal

    Capel went 1-for-2 with a sacrifice fly, a stolen base and a run in a win over the Angels on Wednesday.

    The rookie recorded one of only four hits for the Athletics on the afternoon and was busy otherwise, opening the scoring by driving in Stephen Vogt with a fifth-inning sac fly. Capel's brief big-league stint with the A's after being claimed off waivers from the Cardinals was impressive, as he delivered a .371 average, 1.025 OPS and struck out at an acceptable 20.0 percent clip over 40 plate appearances following a Sept. 20 promotion from Triple-A Las Vegas.

  • Athletics' Conner Capel: Not starting Sunday

    Capel is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners.

  • Athletics' Conner Capel: Continues on tear Sunday

    Capel went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in a loss to the Mets on Sunday.

    The rookie provided a big blast in the ninth inning to make the final score a tad more palatable after the Athletics entered the frame trailing 13-1. Capel has now hit safely in all five games he's played during his current big-league stint, and he finished with seven RBI over the two weekend games of the interleague series thanks to also having driven in four runs with a triple and home run Saturday.

  • Athletics' Conner Capel: Homers and triples in four-RBI game

    Capel went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and a triple for a total of two runs scored and four RBI in a 10-4 victory over the Mets on Saturday.

    Capel was highly productive for the Athletics, who managed an upset victory over the Mets thanks to his four-RBI production at the plate to go along with an incredible diving catch in shallow right field. Capel has now played four games as a member of the Athletics and has seven hits in 14 at-bats over that brief stretch.

  • Athletics' Conner Capel: Laces pair of hits Thursday

    Capel went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run in a loss to the Mariners on Thursday.

    The rookie was just recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday and also got aboard twice that same night. Capel's initial big-league stint this summer netted a .176/.211/.353 slash line across 19 plate appearances over nine games, but he's gotten off to an appreciably better start in the brief two-game sample since his latest promotion.

  • Athletics' Conner Capel: Recalled to majors

    Capel was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.

    Capel was claimed off waivers by the A's earlier this month and is now set to join their big-league club after posting a .799 OPS over 32 plate appearances with Las Vegas. Fellow outfielder Cody Thomas will be optioned to Triple-A in order to make room for Capel on the active roster.

  • Athletics' Conner Capel: Claimed by Athletics

    Capel was claimed off waivers by the Athletics on Friday.

    The Cardinals designated Capel for assignment Wednesday in order to make room on their roster for Alec Burleson. Capel -- who holds a .786 OPS in Triple-A this season -- now finds himself in the Athletics organization and will more than likely be used as a depth piece for the rest of the season.

  • Cardinals' Conner Capel: Pushed off 40-man roster

    The Cardinals designated Capel for assignment Wednesday.

    St. Louis opted to swap Capel off its 40-man roster for a more heralded outfield prospect in Alec Burleson, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move. Capel, who made a nine-game cameo with the big club earlier this summer, is hitting .258/.361/.425 in 377 plate appearances at Triple-A in 2022.

  • Cardinals' Conner Capel: Sent down Friday

    Capel was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday.

    The 25-year-old joined the active roster for the Cardinals' two-game series against the Blue Jays with Nolan Arenado (personal) and Paul Goldschmidt (personal) on the restricted list, but Capel didn't take the field during the road trip. He will head back to the minors now that Arenado and Goldschmidt are back with the club.

  • Cardinals' Conner Capel: Called up Tuesday

    Capel was called up from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

    Capel will return to the majors after being sent down July 9, replacing Nolan Arenado (personal) on the active roster as the team travels to Toronto. The 25-year-old has gone 3-for-17 with a homer and two RBI over nine games with the Cardinals this season.

  • Cardinals' Conner Capel: Sent to Triple-A

    Capel was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Saturday.

    Capel appeared in nine games during his time on the major-league roster and hit .176 with a homer, two RBI, a walk and two strikeouts. He'll head back to the minors after Corey Dickerson (calf) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

  • Cardinals' Conner Capel: Sitting against lefty

    Capel is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Atlanta, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Capel started in right field for the past three days and appears to have supplanted Lars Nootbaar as the Cardinals' preferred option at the position. However, because both Capel and Nootbaar bat from the left side, both will be excluded from the lineup Wednesday while southpaw Max Fried is on the hill. The Cardinals will roll out an outfield of Juan Yepez, Dylan Carlson and Brendan Donovan from left to right.

  • Cardinals' Conner Capel: Hits first big-league homer

    Capel went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and a sacrifice fly in Monday's 6-3 loss to Atlanta.

    Capel has started in only three of seven games since he was called up from Triple-A Memphis. Monday was his second consecutive start, and he accounted for two of the Cardinals' run-scoring plays with a sac fly in the fourth inning and a solo shot in the sixth. The rookie outfielder is 2-for-9 with two RBI so far, and he doesn't have a clear path to playing time. Capel is likely to continue competing with Lars Nootbaar in right field.

  • Cardinals' Conner Capel: Receives first MLB promotion

    The Cardinals selected Capel's contract from Triple-A Memphis on Monday.

    The 25-year-old is expected to fill a depth role in the St. Louis outfield after the Cardinals placed Harrison Bader (foot) on the 10-day injured list Monday. Capel saw action at all three outfield spots for Memphis while slashing .271/.361/.466 with nine home runs and 16 stolen bases across 252 plate appearances.

  • Cardinals' Conner Capel: Dealt to St. Louis

    Capel was traded from the Indians to the Cardinals on Tuesday along with Jhon Torres in exchange for Oscar Mercado.

    This is a rare prospect-for-prospect trade, with the Indians getting Mercado, who is closer to the big leagues, while the Cardinals get Capel, who, most importantly in their eyes, is not on the 40-man roster. The 21-year-old outfielder hit .261/.355/.388 with six home runs and 15 steals in 383 plate appearances at High-A prior to the trade. His combination of some pop and borderline plus speed makes him a rosterable prospect in deeper dynasty leagues.
