  • Astros' Jacob Amaya: Sent down to Triple-A

    Amaya was optioned to Triple-A Sugar Land on Friday, Chandler Rome of The Athletic reports.

    The move will make room for Grae Kessinger (shoulder), who was activated from the 10-day IL, on the active roster. Amaya failed to reach base safely in his only big league at-bat this season.

  • Astros' Jacob Amaya: Recalled from Triple-A

    The Astros recalled Amaya from Triple-A Sugar Land on Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

    With Chas McCormick (hamstring) headed for the 10-day IL, Amaya will come up from the minors to give the Astros an additional bench bat. However, the 25-year-old infielder is slashing just .190/.297/.302 across 74 plate appearances at Triple-A, so he likely won't see much playing time while with Houston.

  • Astros' Jacob Amaya: Acquired by Houston

    The Astros acquired Amaya from the Marlins on Saturday in exchange for cash considerations and Valente Bellozo, Matt Kawahara of the Houston Chronicle reports. Amaya was optioned to Triple-A Sugar Land.

    Amaya, 25, is a glove-first shortstop who has mostly just kept his head above water in the minors with his bat, although he has displayed decent on-base skills. He should get regular reps at shortstop with Sugar Land and offers solid depth at the position in the event something happens to Jeremy Pena.

  • Marlins' Jacob Amaya: DFA'd by Miami

    The Marlins designated Amaya for assignment Tuesday.

    The 25-year-old missed out on Miami's Opening Day roster and has now been removed from the 40-man roster. Amaya made his big-league debut last season with four appearances for the Marlins and had a .750 OPS in 128 games at the Triple-A level.

  • Marlins' Jacob Amaya: Roster bid falls short

    The Marlins optioned Amaya to Triple-A Jacksonville on Monday.

    Amaya received a cup of coffee in the big leagues last June when the Marlins were short on healthy bodies in the infield, but he otherwise spent the bulk of the 2023 campaign at Jacksonville, where he slashed .252/.344/.406 with 15 home runs and six stolen bases across 567 plate appearances. The 25-year-old likely doesn't require much further developmental time in the minors, but it may take an injury to either of the Marlins' projected everyday starters in the middle infield -- Tim Anderson and Luis Arraez -- before Amaya gets an extended look in the majors.

  • Marlins' Jacob Amaya: Optioned back to Triple-A

    Miami optioned Amaya to Triple-A Jacksonville on Monday, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of reports.

    Amaya went 2-for-9 with no walks and one strikeout during his brief stay on the Marlins' major-league roster. The 24-year-old middle infielder has slashed .278/.346/.472 with nine home runs and 35 RBI in 58 games this season at the Triple-A level and should get another big-league opportunity later this summer.

  • Marlins' Jacob Amaya: RBI, steal in debut

    Amaya went 1-for-3 with an RBI, a run scored and a steal in Sunday's victory over the Nationals.

    Amaya opened the scoring in his first major-league at-bat, driving in Nick Fortes with a fielder's choice in the second inning. The 24-year-old Amaya then added his first stolen base later in the frame. Amaya was solid in Triple-A this season, slashing .278/.346/.472 with nine homers, 35 RBI and a steal. He should work on the weak side of a shortstop platoon with Joey Wendle in the short term.

  • Marlins' Jacob Amaya: Promoted to big leagues

    Amaya was called up from Triple-A Jacksonville by the Marlins on Saturday.

    Amaya has put together a solid season in Triple-A this year, slashing .277/.344/.469 with nine homers and 35 RBI through 241 plate appearances. Jean Segura (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day IL in a corresponding move, meaning Amaya might see regular reps at shortstop while Joey Wendle shifts to third base -- a temporary change that could become permanent if Amaya holds his own.

  • Marlins' Jacob Amaya: Power surge at Triple-A

    Amaya has hit safely in five straight games for Triple-A Jacksonville, going 11-for-20 (.550) with a double, four home runs and 12 RBI.

    The 24-year-old shortstop missed about a week of action after getting hit by a pitch May 16, but since returning to the Jumbo Shrimp lineup, Amaya has been on a tear. He's now slashing .297/.367/.494 on the season, a sharp contrast to the .587 OPS that Miami shortstops have produced this season -- the second-worst mark in MLB, ahead of only the .573 OPS generated by Oakland shortstops. While he's not viewed as a top prospect, Amaya's big-league debut seems like it should be coming sooner rather than later.

  • Marlins' Jacob Amaya: Pushing for promotion

    Amaya is slashing .362/.423/.553 through 52 plate appearances in May for Triple-A Jacksonville with four doubles, a triple, a homer and a 5:6 BB:K.

    The 24-year-old may not ever be a true asset as a hitter in the majors, but Amaya's glove is big-league ready and all he really needs to do is demonstrate he won't be a liability at the plate before he'll get a chance to take over as the Marlins' starting shortstop. That could happen before the All-Star break, considering that Joey Wendle has had trouble staying healthy and has gone 3-for-28 (.107) to begin the season when he has been in the lineup.

  • Marlins' Jacob Amaya: Sent to minors

    The Marlins optioned Amaya to Triple-A Jacksonville on Sunday, Christina De Nicola of reports.

    With Jazz Chisholm and Luis Arraez seemingly locked in as the Marlins' Opening Day starters in the middle infield, Amaya was never a realistic candidate to break camp with the big club. After being acquired from the Dodgers in January in the deal that sent Miguel Rojas to Los Angeles, Amaya will likely have a clearer path to reaching the big leagues in 2023 with his new organization. He was productive in his first taste of the Triple-A level with Oklahoma City in 2022, slashing .259/.368/.381 with eight home runs and three stolen bases across 351 plate appearances.

  • Marlins' Jacob Amaya: Healthy for spring

    Amaya (undisclosed) was spotted taking part in defensive drills during the Marlins' team workout Monday at big-league spring training, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    The 24-year-old infielder is attending his first camp with the Marlins after Miami acquired him from the Dodgers in January in the deal that sent veteran shortstop Miguel Rojas to Los Angeles. Amaya closed the 2022 campaign on Triple-A Oklahoma City's 60-day injured list due to an unspecified injury, but his participation in the early stages of spring training suggests he'll enter the 2023 season at full health. Look for him to open his time in the Miami organization at Triple-A Jacksonville.

  • Marlins' Jacob Amaya: Acquired by Miami

    Amaya (undisclosed) was acquired by the Marlins from the Dodgers on Wednesday in exchange for shortstop Miguel Rojas (wrist), Jim Bowden of The Athletic reports.

    Amaya split the 2022 campaign between the Double-A and Triple-A levels and had a .261/.369/.426 slash line across 133 games. He landed on the 60-day injured list in October with an unspecified injury, and it's unclear if he'll be ready for the start of spring training next month.
