Jimmy Paredes RF BAL 1 Day

Paredes was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday.

Paredes didn't exactly swing his way to a promotion, as he hit just .258/.286/.394 in 32 games after joining Norfolk, but he provides the team with some added depth and versatility. Paredes played five different positions in the minors this season -- second, third, short, left and right -- and will likely remain in a utility role over the remainder of the regular season.

The 25-year-old continues to bounce back and forth between the Royals and the minor leagues whenever they need an extra man on the bench. In nine games with the Royals he has gone 2-for-10 (.200) while swiping a pair of bases and scoring three runs.

Paredes was hitting .327/.357/.486 with three home runs, 17 RBI, and six stolen bases in 26 games this season at the Triple-A level. He'll see some action at third base but isn't a great fantasy bet in mixed leagues. The 25-year-old owns a .583 OPS in 122 games in the bigs.

The O's claimed Paredes off waivers from the Marlins last week, but he's now headed over to Royals camp. The 25-year-old utilityman hit just .192/.231/.248 in 135 plate appearances last season for the Astros and is doubtful to make Kansas City's Opening Day roster.
