We'll keep track of players who have been outrighted to Triple-A today here…

  • Padres infielder Jeudy Valdez cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A, according to MLB.com's Corey Brock (Twitter link). The 23-year-old can handle shortstop and he possesses both power and speed, though he hit just .225/.273/.364 at Double-A last season. Valdez was DFA'ed last week to make room for Fautino De Los Santos. He'll be in camp as a non-roster invite, according to Brock.
  • Dane De La Rosa has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A by the Rays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports (on Twitter). He was designated for assignment last week to clear roster space for Luke Scott. The 29-year-old has a career 3.00 ERA, 11.1 K/9 and 4.4 BB/9 at the Triple-A level. He has also been invited to Major League camp, according to Topkin.
