  • Blue Jays' Brian Serven: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Blue Jays optioned Serven to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The 29-year-old is no longer needed on the MLB roster since Danny Jansen is back from paternity leave. Serven went 1-for-3 at the plate during his brief stint with the big club.

  • Blue Jays' Brian Serven: Back with big club

    The Blue Jays recalled Serven from Triple-A Buffalo on Monday.

    Serven will be the Blue Jays' No. 2 catcher behind Alejandro Kirk while Danny Jansen (personal) is on paternity leave. Serven was hitless in eight at-bats during a brief stint with the big club to begin the season.

  • Blue Jays' Brian Serven: Optioned to Triple-A

    Serven was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo by the Blue Jays on Monday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Serven was the Jays' backup catcher while Danny Jansen (wrist) was on the shelf, but he's no longer needed with Jansen back in the fold. He's hitless in 10 plate appearances this season.

  • Blue Jays' Brian Serven: Set to make Blue Jays debut

    Serven will start at catcher and hit in the No. 8 spot in Saturday's game against Tampa Bay.

    After being DFA'd by the Rockies and Cubs over the offseason, Serven joined the Blue Jays in January. He managed to make the Opening Day roster with Danny Jansen (wrist) starting the season on the 10-day injured list. After Alejandro Kirk started the first two games, Serven will start at catcher Saturday and face Rays right-hander Zack Littell.

  • Blue Jays' Brian Serven: Added to roster

    The Blue Jays selected Serven's contract from Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

    Serven will be the Jays' backup catcher while Danny Jansen (wrist) is sidelined to begin the season. He's a career .195/.248/.314 hitter in the majors and should see occasional action behind starter Alejandro Kirk.

  • Blue Jays' Brian Serven: Makes Opening Day roster

    Serven will be on the Blue Jays' Opening Day roster, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Serven registered five hits in 23 at-bats this spring -- three of which were home runs -- and drove in 12 RBI. However, his performance likely didn't factor into the decision to keep him on the roster as much as Danny Jansen's (wrist) imminent trip to the injured list. Serven will open the year as the backup to Alejandro Kirk.

  • Blue Jays' Brian Serven: Launches third spring homer

    Serven went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins.

    One day after Danny Jansen suffered a broken bone in his wrist, Serven got the start at catcher and took Bailey Ober deep in the first inning for his third long ball of the spring. The former Rockie appears to be in line to back up Alejandro Kirk at catcher to begin the season, batting .313 (5-for-16) in camp with all five hits going for extra bases, but it's highly unlikely that kind of offensive performance will carry forward should he get significant playing time. In 228 big-league plate appearances, more than half of which came at Coors Field, Serven has a meager .195/.248/.314 slash line.

  • Blue Jays' Brian Serven: Sent outright to Triple-A

    Serven was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo on Monday.

    The Blue Jays quietly designated Serven for assignment and will send him to Triple-A now that he's passed through waivers. He was claimed by Toronto in mid-January and figures to serve as organizational depth at catcher.

  • Blue Jays' Brian Serven: Claimed by Blue Jays

    The Blue Jays claimed Serven off waivers from the Cubs on Tuesday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Serven has gone from the Rockies to the Cubs and now to the Blue Jays via waivers this month. The 28-year-old has slashed just .195/.248/.314 over 228 plate appearances at the major-league level, even as his home games have been played at Coors Field. Serven does have options remaining and, if he's still with the Blue Jays come Opening Day, he seems likely to be assigned to their Triple-A affiliate in Buffalo.

  • Cubs' Brian Serven: DFA'd by Cubs

    The Cubs designated Serven for assignment Thursday.

    Serven will lose his spot on the Cubs' 40-man roster following the acquisition of Michael Busch and Yency Almonte from the Dodgers on Thursday. Serven managed just a .572 OPS through 162 plate appearances in Triple-A last season, making it possible he goes unclaimed off waivers.

  • Cubs' Brian Serven: Claimed by Cubbies

    The Cubs claimed Serven off waivers from the Rockies on Friday.

    The Rockies dumped Serven from their 40-man roster in order to make room for Jacob Stallings, who signed with the club Friday. Serven managed to slash just .199/.241/.331 across 162 plate appearances with Colorado's Triple-A affiliate, and he'll almost certainly return to the minors to begin his tenure with the Cubs.

  • Rockies' Brian Serven: Optioned to Triple-A

    Colorado optioned Serven to Triple-A Albuquerque on Thursday.

    Jorge Alfaro has been brought up by the Rockies in a corresponding roster move to help at catcher and mix in at DH. Serven, 28, is batting just .130 with a .304 OPS in 23 plate appearances this year at the major-league level.

  • Rockies' Brian Serven: Summoned from minors

    Colorado recalled Serven from Triple-A Albuquerque on Sunday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    Serven hit just .130 with a .304 OPS over 23 plate appearances before being optioned to Triple-A in early May. While he's back up with the Rockies, Serven will provide depth behind the plate, though he could see more playing time if Elias Diaz (head) requires a stint on the injured list.

  • Rockies' Brian Serven: Optioned to Triple-A

    Serven was optioned Friday to Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Austin Wynns, claimed off waivers from the Dodgers on Thursday, will join the Rockies as the new backup to starting catcher Elias Diaz. Serven was just 3-for-23 (.130) with no walks and 10 strikeouts through 10 games this season with Colorado.

  • Rockies' Brian Serven: Draws rare start

    Serven went 1-for-2 Wednesday against the Cardinals.

    Serven was expected to be in a fairly even split for playing time behind the plate with Elias Diaz this season, but he made just his third start Wednesday. He led off the sixth inning with a single but was replaced by a pinch hitter one frame later. Serven has three hits in seven at-bats for the campaign but is clearly viewed as just the backup catcher in Colorado.

  • Rockies' Brian Serven: Striking out at alarming clip

    Serven has struck out 20 times across 42 plate appearances during Cactus League games this spring.

    Serven is all but locked into a roster spot, so even his slow spring performance isn't likely to change his status for Opening Day. However, he may lose out on playing time to Elias Diaz -- the Rockies' other catcher that will start the campaign in the majors --until he can show he can get back on track at the dish.

  • Rockies' Brian Serven: Back on bench with Diaz healthy

    Serven is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Elias Diaz will check back in behind the plate Tuesday after being reinstated from the injured list Sunday, spelling an end to Serven's three-game starting streak. The return of Diaz will also likely result in Serven falling into a timeshare at catcher, if not the clear-cut No. 2 role. While Diaz was on the shelf with the hand injury he picked up Aug. 10, Serven slashed .185/.267/.444.

  • Rockies' Brian Serven: Hits sixth home run

    Serven went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's extra-innings loss to the Giants.

    Serven's sixth home run of the season was a two-run shot to tie the game 2-2 in the bottom of the fifth inning. The 27-year-old has started 10 of the last 11 games for the Rockies since primary catcher Elias Diaz went down with a wrist injury. Serven is hitting just .229 on the season, but he owned a .265 average at Coors Field entering the afternoon, so he could be a serviceable option at catcher during weeks the Rockies are at home.

  • Rockies' Brian Serven: Receives breather

    Serven is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    Serven has taken over as the Rockies' clear No. 1 catcher since Elias Diaz (wrist) landed on the injured list last Friday, but the 27-year-old will need a breather as the Rockies and Cardinals close their series with a day game after a night game. While starting in five of the past six games, Serven went 3-for-16 with a home run, a double, two walks, three RBI and an additional run.

  • Rockies' Brian Serven: On bench Saturday

    Serven isn't starting Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

    Serven will get a breather after he went 2-for-6 with a home run, a double, three RBI and two runs over the last two games. Dom Nunez is starting at catcher and batting ninth.
