  • Tigers' Bligh Madris: Gets minors deal from Detroit

    Madris signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Monday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    He'll be in major-league camp during spring training. Madris was a waiver claim by the Tigers two offseasons ago but was traded before playing for them. The 27-year-old has managed just a .500 OPS over 51 games to this point at the major-league level. He'll likely begin 2024 at Triple-A Toledo.

    Madris passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment by the Astros on Tuesday. The 27-year-old outfielder is a career .173/.248/.252 hitter in 51 games (153 plate appearances) at the major-league level.

  • Astros' Bligh Madris: Designated for assignment

    Madris was designated for assignment by the Astros on Tuesday, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports.

  • Astros' Bligh Madris: Optioned to Triple-A

    Houston optioned Madris to Triple-A Sugar Land on Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

    Madris had been up with the Astros since June 22, but he played in only 12 games and slashed .154/.267/.192 across 30 plate appearances. Yordan Alvarez (oblique) and Jose Altuve (oblique) are both back from the injured list ahead of Wednesday's series finale against the Rangers.

  • Astros' Bligh Madris: Promoted to majors

    The Astros selected Madris' contract from Triple-A Sugar Land on Thursday, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    Madris will take the roster spot opened up by the demotion of Cesar Salazar to Triple-A on Thursday. Madris was unimpressive during his time with the Pirates last season, slashing .177/.244/.265 with seven RBI across 123 plate appearances, but he's been solid in the minors this year. He'll most likely come off the bench while in Houston.

  • Astros' Bligh Madris: Clears waivers

    The Astros outrighted Madris to Triple-A Sugar Land on Monday.

    He'll remain in the organization after none of MLB's other 29 teams put in a waiver claim for the 27-year-old outfielder after he was designated for assignment prior to Opening Day. Madris appeared in 39 games at the big-league level as a rookie with the Pirates in 2022, slashing .177/.244/.265 with a home run and two steals in 123 plate appearances.

  • Astros' Bligh Madris: Designated for assignment

    Madris was designated for assignment by the Astros on Thursday.

    The team needed to free up a 40-man roster spot and Madris is the casualty. It's the second time he's been DFA'd since December.

  • Astros' Bligh Madris: Optioned to Triple-A

    Madris was optioned to Triple-A Sugar Land on Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Madris reached the majors for the first time in his career last season but slashed just .177/.244/.265 over 123 plate appearances with the Pirates. He had a much better spring, but the 27-year-old outfielder will return to the minors to serve as organizational depth.

  • 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

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

  • 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.
