Pacheco refused outright and elected free agency Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

With Pacheco suffering a shoulder injury after going just 8-for-51 with zero home runs, zero RBI and only one run scored in 31 games this season, the Reds decided to try and cut ties and outright him. However, Pacheco was able to refuse the outright and elect free agency, meaning he will be able to chose his next team, but his lack of offensive skills are an inherent limitation to his fantasy value.

Pacheco (shoulder) was placed on the DL Tuesday, retroactive to June 3.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old catcher hasn't played a major league game since June 1 due to right shoulder tendinitis and it is now clear that the injury is severe enough to send him to the DL. He had been struggling mightily the month prior, going 4-for-36 (.111) with 13 strikeouts since Apr. 21 so some time off to recover physically and mentally could be exactly what he needs to get his season back on track.

Pacheco has made the Reds Opening Day roster, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pacheco's chances of making the roster were significantly improved after Rule 5 pick Jake Cave was placed on waivers. Having secured a roster spot, the main question now is playing time, as Pacheco will have to compete with Devin Mesoraco and Tucker Barnhart for reps behind the plate, though he has been used at the corner infield spots throughout his career.

Despite not starting Monday's game, Pacheco went 1-for-3 with his second home run after replacing Paul Goldschmidt in a blowout loss to the Nationals.

Pacheco is batting .250/.349/.417 in a part-time role for the D-Backs. Starting catcher Tuffy Gosewisch has been better at the dish of late, which squeezes his opportunities for playing time. Pacheco can be helpful is deep leagues thanks to his position flexibility, but he hasn't hit enough to claim a starting job with the D-Backs or on your roster.
