Reds' Albert Almora: Sits in second straight

Almora is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers. The Reds are giving Tyler Stephenson a start at designated hitter rather than behind the plate for Wednesday's series finale, which leaves no room for Almora in the outfield while Cincinnati goes with Tommy Pham, TJ Friedl and Tyler Naquin from left to right. As soon as Cincinnati returns Nick Senzel (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list, Almora will be a logical candidate to move off the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster.

Reds' Albert Almora: Filling in for Senzel

Almora will start in center field and bat eighth in Monday's game against the Brewers. With four starts in the Reds' last five games, Almora appears to have settled in as the team's primary center fielder while Nick Senzel (illness) remains on the COVID-19-related injured list. Almora has done well in his limited action with the big club to date, going 4-for-12 with a double, a stolen base and two runs.

Reds' Albert Almora: Two hits in season debut

Almora went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a strikeout during Thursday's 10-5 loss to the Brewers. Almora had his contract selected from Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday after Nick Senzel (undisclosed) and Tyler Naquin (undisclosed) landed on the COVID-19 list. The defensive-minded outfielder only has 92 plate appearances in the majors since 2019, so he's expected to be sent back to Triple-A when Senzel and Naquin are cleared to return.

Reds' Albert Almora: Joining big-league club

The veteran outfielder will join the Reds as a depth piece with Nick Senzel (undisclosed) and Tyler Naquin (undisclosed) landing on the COVID-19 injured list.

Reds' Albert Almora: Nursing sore shoulder

Almora was removed from Tuesday's Cactus League game due to shoulder soreness, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Almora went 1-for-1 with a walk and a run scored prior to exiting Tuesday's exhibition versus the Rangers. The 27-year-old inked a minor-league deal with the Reds last week and is unlikely to make the Opening Day roster, even if he can quickly return from the shoulder issue.

Mets place J.D. Davis On 10-day IL, designate Albert Almora

The Mets announced a trio of roster moves before Sunday’s game, including the placement of third baseman J.D. Davis on the 10-day injured list due to a left hand sprain. The placement is retroactive to Sept. 23, but Davis’ 2021 season seems in all likelihood to be over. In corresponding roster moves, the Mets activated righty Sean Reid-Foley from the 60-day injured list and designated outfielder Albert Almora for assignment.

Mets' Albert Almora: DFA'd Sunday

The Mets designated Almora for assignment Sunday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. Almora had been serving primarily as a defensive replacement lately. He's hit .115/.148/.173 with no RBI in 54 plate appearances this season, numbers that are unlikely to command a waiver claim in the next couple days. His 40-man roster spot was filled by Sean Reid-Foley, whom the Mets activated off the 60-day injured list.

Mets' Albert Almora: Sent down Wednesday

Almora was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Although Almora was recalled at the beginning of September as part of the active roster expansion, he didn't start any games and went 0-for-5 with a run and two strikeouts during sporadic appearances off the bench. The 27-year-old should see more consistent playing time in Syracuse, while Jose Peraza (finger) will serve as utility depth for the major-league club after he was reinstated from the 10-day injured list.

Mets' Albert Almora: Optioned to Triple-A

Almora has shown very little in limited action this season, hitting .128/.163/.191 across 49 plate appearances.
