Free agent outfielder Scott Schebler agreed to a minor league deal with the Angels on Saturday.
The veteran outfielder appeared in only one game during the 2020 season with Atlanta after spending the previous four seasons in Cincinnati. Per Nightengale, Schebler will be reunited with Angels new GM Perry Minasian who was the assistant GM in Atlanta last season. Schebler slugged 30 home runs back in 2017 but simply provides organizational depth at this point and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
The Braves designated Scott Schebler for assignment.
Schebler was 0-for-1 this season. The move clears a roster spot for Will Smith.
The Reds traded OF Scott Schebler to the Braves in exchange for cash considerations.
Schebler will leave a crowded Reds outfield and will most likely come off the bench for his new team. He will be in the mox at designated hitter with Adam Duvall and Matt Adams. Schebler slashed .123/.253/.222 with two homers, seven RBI and 11 runs across 30 games for the Reds in 2019.
Scott Schebler went 1-for-4 with a two-run double in the Reds' 5-2 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.
Schebler put his team on the board in the ninth, but it was too little too late for the struggling Cincinnati offense. Schebler's been a huge part of those struggles, with just a .139 AVG and 30% strikeout rate in 84 PA this year. He'd be on the bench if the Reds had anyone better.
Scott Schebler went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in the Reds' 7-6 win over the Braves on Tuesday.
Schebler's slump seems to know no end, and he's now hitting .153 with a 28.4% strikeout rate on the year. His time as a semi-regular may be coming to an end when Nick Senzel reaches the majors.
