Randy Arozarena News
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena is absent from the starting lineup for Monday's game against right-hander Alek Manoah and the Toronto Blue Jays. Brett Phillips is getting the start in right field and leading off while Austin Meadows is covering left field. Arozarena returned from the paternity list on Saturday and went on to go 1-for-6 with three strikeouts in his first two games back. The right-handed Arozarena has been a regular in the team's starting lineup when available this year, however he's performed much better against lefties than righties. He has a .302/.385/.544 slash line against lefties and a .257/.335/.413 slash line against righties. The Rays face another right-hander in Jose Berrios on Tuesday, but Arozarena likely won't sit out two straight games.
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena was activated from the paternity list ahead of Saturday's game against the Detroit Tigers. Josh Lowe was optioned to Triple-A Durham in a corresponding move. The 2020 ALCS MVP is batting fifth and starting in right field for Saturday's game. Arozarena has been a steady contributor in 2021, slashing .276/.356/.468 with 19 home runs, 62 RBI, 86 runs scored, and 13 stolen bases over 525 plate appearances. Fantasy managers can safely insert Arozarena into their starting lineups for Saturday's slate.
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena was placed on the paternity list Wednesday. He will be away from the team for at least three days following the birth of his child. The 26-year-old continues to produce in 2021, slashing .256/.356/.468 with 19 home runs, 62 RBI, 86 runs scored, and 13 stolen bases over 525 plate appearances. The Rays called up top prospect Josh Lowe in a corresponding move. He slashed .282/.369/.540 with 21 home runs, 73 RBI and 24 stolen bases with Triple-A Durham this season. According to Jeff Passan of ESPN, Lowe's stay in the majors could be short-lived, and he should see most of his at-bats in right field while Arozarena is away. Fantasy managers in redraft leagues can add Lowe as a short-term replacement for Arozarena.
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena went from afterthought to postseason hero to phenom in a matter of weeks. The 25-year-old Cuban prospect spent much of the 2020 regular season rehabbing and recovering from COVID before debuting at the very end of August. He made an immediate splash, swatting four homers, stealing two bases, and hitting .471 over his first seven MLB games. He finished the regular season with a slash line of .281/.382/.641, seven HR, 11 RBI, 15 runs, and four SB over 64 at-bats. Then, the playoffs came and we all know what happened. Arozarena went ballistic, posting all-time playoff records with 29 total hits, 10 home runs, and numerous other rookie records. Predictably, fantasy managers are ready for a breakout season and some view him as the next coming of Ronald Acuna Jr. Despite an offseason incident which saw Arozarena arrested in Mexico regarding a custody dispute, he was released without consequence. It's clear that his draft stock hasn't taken a hit and may even continue to climb if Arozarena continues to hit during spring training. His early ADP is all the way up to 58 in NFBC drafts and he may cost a top-50 pick in many leagues. While the tantalizing talent is tangible, we have an even smaller sample size than most rookies who premiered in 2020. If you prefer to shoot for the power/speed upside of Arozarena over the predictability of someone like George Springer in the same tier, be prepared to strike early enough on draft day.
