Marlins Designate Jimmy Paredes For Assignment

The Marlins have designated outfielder Jimmy Paredes for assignment to create roster space for Jeff Baker, the club announced. The 25-year-old utilityman had been claimed in November off of waivers from the Astros.

Paredes saw limited action over the last three years in Houston. In 2013, he put up a .192/.231/.248 line in 135 trips to the plate. Seeing most of his time at Triple-A last year, Paredes was good for a .287/.345/.462 line at that level. He does have some speed as evidenced by his 166 stolen bases over seven minor league seasons, though he is just 11-for-20 in the majors. Primarily a second baseman in the minors, Paredes has seen most of his big league time in the outfield and at third.

He was so highly regarded just a few years ago with the Astros

I was hoping he would stick with the Marlins as a utility guy. However, I think he would be a good fit with the Yankees again.

As a Cubs fan, I remember him being a thorn to us. Seemed to play well against us… Too bad he couldn’t make it.
