Triunfel was originally an undrafted free agent signed by the Mariners in 2008. He advanced quickly in the organization and made his big league debut in 2012. He also saw some big league time with Seattle in 2013, but was mainly in Triple-A. He was outrighted off the 40-man that season and was claimed by the Dodgers during the following Spring Training. After struggling in Triple-A with the Dodgers, and getting a handful of Major League at bats, he was DFA’d by them as well at the end of the season. He signed a Minor League deal with the Giants for the 2015 season and the Reds for the 2016 season. Triunfel is a career .270 Minor League hitter, but has very limited power.
