Stamets will be a part of the Rockies' 60-man summer camp.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old journeyman infielder was in camp on a minor-league deal. He has spent the last few seasons languishing at Triple-A in the Indians' organization, finally getting a brief taste of the majors in 2019 and hitting .049 with a 50 percent strikeout rate in 48 plate appearances.

Stamets signed a minor-league contract with the Rockies on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Stamets got his first taste of major-league action in 2019, recording a batting average of .049 with 24 strikeouts over 15 games with Cleveland. The 28-year-old will get a chance to compete in major-league spring training this year, although it's unclear whether he will be able to make an impact given his previous struggles to produce.

Stamets was designated for assignment by the Indians on Wednesday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

This move frees up a roster spot for Thursday's starter, Danny Salazar (shoulder), who was activated from the 60-day IL in a corresponding move. The 27-year-old Stamets has spent most of the season with Triple-A Columbus, slashing just .232/.313/.378 with six homers and 12 steals in 71 games for the Clippers.

Stamets was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Stamets got an extended run of starts with Francisco Lindor (ankle) on the injured list. He looked way out of his depth, hitting .049/.149/.073 in 15 games with a 50 percent strikeout rate. Mike Freeman was called up to take his place.

Stamets is out of the lineup Saturday against the Twins, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Stamets received the Opening Day start at shortstop, striking out in both of his first two major-league at-bats. The Tribe will turn to Max Moroff at shortstop Saturday, with both he and Stamets likely to work in a timeshare at the position until one cements himself as the superior option. Both will see their playing time drop sharply, however, once Francisco Lindor (calf/ankle) is ready to return from the injured list.

Stamets started at shortstop and went 0-for-2 in Thursday's season opener against Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Stamets wasn't the only Cleveland starter to struggle at the dish, as the team was shut out on Opening Day. With Francisco Lindor (calf/ankle) beginning the season on the 10-day injured list, Stamets is the next man up at shortstop. He'll look for his first hit of 2019 in Friday's matchup with the Twins.

Stamets (hip) is starting at shortstop and batting ninth in Sunday's spring game against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Stamets has been battling left hip tightness since Wednesday but his relatively quick return to action confirms it was a minor issue. According to Mandy Bell of MLB.com, the 27-year-old is expected to fill in at shortstop while the newly-signed Brad Miller steps in at second base with Francisco Lindor and Jason Kipnis heading to the injured list with calf strains.

Stamets (hip) is in line to break camp with the Indians, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Francisco Lindor (calf) and Jason Kipnis (calf) both expected to miss the start of the season, Stamets and Max Moroff look poised to open the season up the middle for the Indians, barring a late free agent signing. The 27-year-old Stamets spent all of 2018 with Triple-A Columbus, slashing .202/.272/.324 with five homers and five steals in 78 games. He figures to revert to a reserve role once Kipnis or Lindor returns.
