Randy Arozarena News
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena is not in the starting lineup on Sunday in the series finale against the New York Yankees. Arozarena is getting a day of rest despite heating up at the plate of late. The 27-year-old has gone 13-for-32 (.406 average) with two home runs, seven RBI and a stolen base in eight games since May 20 to raise his season line to .259/.305/.408 with four home runs, 19 RBI, 21 runs scored and four stolen bases in 187 plate appearances. With Arozarena sitting, Manuel Margot is in left field and is batting fifth, while Brett Phillips gets the nod in right field while hitting seventh against Yankees right-hander Luis Severino. Margot has been hot with the bat this year and should garner some DFS appeal.
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena slugged a pair of home runs on Saturday night as his club defeated the Orioles 6-1. The 27-year-old victimized O's starter Kyle Bradish in the first and then again in the fourth as he finished the evening going 2-for-3 with a walk and three RBI. After not hitting a long ball all year until May 9, Arozarena now has four on the campaign to go along with 19 runs, 15 RBI, six steals, and a .253/.302/.413 slash line through 39 games played. He looks to have put the slow start behind him as managers should expect him to deliver solid power/speed numbers yet again by season's end.
Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena has been among the more disappointing players for fantasy managers to start the season, but there have been some signs of improvement in the month of May. In 17 games since the calendar turned, Arozarena is slashing a decent .274/.313/.468 with two home runs and three steals. He's also been caught stealing three times, which is bad news for fantasy managers in Net Steals formats, however. Arozarena will always be a streaky player with his free-swinging ways, but as long as he's on track for double-digit homers and steals, he'll have a place on fantasy rosters in all formats.
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.
