Berry was reassigned to minor league camp Saturday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Berry has played in a grand total of 31 major league games over the last three seasons and was most recently with the Cubs organization before being brought in as a non-roster invitee. He struggled mightily at the dish this spring, going just 2-for-22 (.091) with eight strikeouts and two walks. He'll head down to minor league camp and figures to add organizational depth in the outfield, but as a 31-year old minor leaguer, his odds of making a fantasy impact are very slim.

Berry signed a minor league contract with the Angels on Tuesday that includes an invite to spring training.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 31-year-old will get to make his case for a roster spot in the spring, but it seems likely Berry will continue to serve as depth within his new organization. While Berry still has good speed and can play all three outfield positions, his .225/.326/.282 line at the Triple-A level last season will make it hard for any big-league club to justify giving him at-bats.

Berry declined an assignment to Triple-A Iowa and elected to become a free agent, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Berry has 27 stolen bases in 301 career at-bats in the majors, but stealing bases is about all the 30-year-old outfielder can do. Expect him to sign a minor league contract and fight for a job next spring.

Berry has been added to the Cubs' NLCS roster, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With Addison Russell ruled out for the series, the Cubs opted to put the speedy Berry on their bench, presumably for use as a pinch-runner in the late innings.

Berry was called up from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 30-year-old will provide the Cubs with a quality pinch-run option after swiping 35 bags at Triple-A this season, his sixth 30-plus-steal campaign in the minors. Berry brings little else to the table, offensively, as evidenced by his .237/.340/.302 batting line in parts of five seasons at Triple-A, but he can also play all three outfield positions.

Berry (back) appeared in a minor-league game Thursday, the Boston Globe reports. He went 2-for-2 with a homer and played three innings, one at each outfield position.

Berry had been shut down since injuring his back while lifting weights earlier this month. There are way too many bodies in front of him in the outfield at the major-league level, so expect him to be with Triple-A Pawtucket to start the season.

Berry has signed a minor league contract with the Red Sox, SB Nation's Chris Cotillo reports.

Berry compiled a respectable .285/.382/.367 batting line with 25 steals in 112 games with the Orioles' Triple-A Norfolk affiliate last season, but his ceiling as a Quad-A player is pretty well established at this point. The 30-year-old has little-to-no pop in his bat and figures to once again play out the season as organizational depth in the minors.

Berry was released Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN reports.

With the addition of Ryan Lavarnway to the roster Tuesday, Baltimore released the 30-year-old, who appeared in 10 major league games last season. He spent the bulk of the year at Triple-A Norfolk, hitting .285 with 35 RBI in 365 at-bats.
