Randy Arozarena News
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena (quadriceps) is back in left field and is batting third in the order for Tampa on Wednesday against right-hander Bryan Bello and the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Arozarena missed the last three games with right-quadriceps tightness, but he'll return for fantasy managers to close out the last week of the 2023 regular season. You'll want to return the 28-year-old to your starting lineups immediately. Arozarena made his first All-Star team this year and enters Wednesday's contest hitting .255/.363/.427 with a career-high 23 home runs, 18 doubles, three triples, 83 RBI, 22 stolen bases and 92 runs scored in 148 games. He's struggled in September, though, going 17-for-78 (.218) with only two homers, four doubles, a triple, seven RBI, 25 strikeouts, two steals and seven runs scored in 20 starts.
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena (quadriceps) is out of the team's starting lineup on Tuesday against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. Arozarena will miss his third straight game with right-quadriceps tightness. It's bad news for fantasy managers that were counting on him to help them out in the final week of the regular season, but hopefully he'll be able to return on Wednesday. The Rays have another off day coming on Thursday, so at the very least, the 28-year-old should be back in action this weekend to close things out in the regular season against the Toronto Blue Jays. Raimel Tapia is in left field on Tuesday and is hitting in the seven-hole against Red Sox right-hander Tanner Houck.
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena (quad) is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays. The 28-year-old left Friday's contest early with some right quad tightness, so he'll get a day off on Saturday to get right. His status for Sunday's series finale is up in the air but he should be considered day-to-day for now. Harold Ramirez will take over in left field and bat second in Arozarena's place against Hyun Jin Ryu and the Jays.
The Rays' speedy outfielder's primary attribute is steals, but he's shown the ability to hit enough homers and drive in enough runs to be a solid fantasy contributor across the board. In 2022, he drove in 89 while hitting 20 homers and swiping 32 more bags. The lack of raw power and high ground-ball rate keep the batting average down a bit more than we'd like (.263 last season), but his speed and decent strikeout rate keep him out of the danger zone there. The Rays lineup is far from a juggernaut, and it doesn't profile all that well for 2023 right now. That's a downside for Arozarena, but we at least know his playing time is secure. Another 30-steal season is very likely here, and he's unlikely to really crater a fantasy team in other categories. The risk in 2023 is that steals blow up across the board, making the "steals specialist" less valuable, but that's all a bit of speculation. The ADP here makes Randy a top 50 player, and that takes away a lot of opportunity here. He does not profile with league-winning upside, giving him plenty of paths to failure as a fourth or fifth-round pick. He should be downgraded quite a bit in points leagues, but you're unlikely to really regret the pick in roto even with the lack of upside here.
