Yasmany Tomas: Released by Nationals
Tomas was released from his minor-league deal Saturday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Tomas joined the Nationals as a non-roster invitee back in November but went on to hit just .233/.281/.233 in 20 spring games. He'll look to latch on elsewhere but will likely be stuck with another minor-league contract, as he's appeared in just four major-league games in the last three seasons.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Yasmany Tomas: Invited to Nationals camp
Tomas signed with the Nationals as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.
The 30-year-old has appeared in just four total MLB games over the last three seasons. None of them came in 2020, as he was left out of the Diamondbacks' 60-man player pool. His career .266/.306/.459 slash line in 309 games at the highest level translates to a nearly average 97 wRC+, so there's at least a chance he makes it as a bench bat.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Omitted from pool
Tomas is not part of the Diamondbacks' 60-man player pool, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Tomas was considered to be in the mix for at-bats as the designated hitter for Arizona, but he was left off the pool because of his similarities with fellow slugger Kevin Cron, who is part of the pool, per Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen. The decision means the 30-year-old Tomas, who is in the final year of a six-year, $68.5 million deal, will enter free agency without a chance to increase his marketability through his play on the field....

Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Has path to ABs
Arizona manager Torey Lovullo mentioned Tomas as a candidate to receive at-bats as a designated hitter in 2020 if MLB adopts a universal DH for both leagues, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Tomas, who is set to begin a second straight season off the 40-man roster, could be helpful to the Diamondbacks in an abbreviated season. He brings 309 games of MLB experience, including a brief stint for Arizona in 2019, and the Diamondbacks would not have to find a home for him defensively. Along with Tomas, Lovullo mentioned Jake Lamb and Kevin Cron as the most likely beneficiaries of available DH at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Removed from 40-man roster
Tomas was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Sunday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Tomas was optioned to Reno on Thursday after spending a week in the majors and now finds himself cast off the 40-man roster. The 28-year-old has a .305/.341/.603 slash line with 29 homers in 98 game at Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Sent back to minors
Tomas was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Thursday.
Tomas spent less than a week with the big club, going 0-for-6 with a trio of strikeouts in four appearances (one start) during that stretch. He'll return to Reno, where he owns a .305/.341/.603 slash line and 29 home runs in 98 games this season. This move frees up a spot on the active roster for Mike Leake, who was acquired from the Mariners on Wednesday in exchange for Jose Caballero.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Summoned to majors
Tomas had his contract purchased from Triple-A Reno on Friday.
Tomas is set to join the Diamondbacks for the first time since 2017 after compiling a .305/.341/.603 slash line with 29 home runs and 23 doubles across 98 games for Reno. The 28-year-old has split time between first base and left field in the minors, though it remains to be seen what role he'll play with the big club. Tomas, who hit .272 with 31 homers in 140 games back in 2016, could see time at DH during next week's series against the Yankees in New York. To free up a spot on the roster for Tomas, Taylor Clarke (personal) was placed on the paternity list while Luke Weaver (elbow) was shifted to the 60-day IL.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Joining big-league club
Tomas will have his contract purchased from Triple-A Reno on Friday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.
Tomas will join the Diamondbacks in Miami ahead of Friday's series opener. The 28-year-old, who hasn't appeared in the majors since 2017, compiled a solid .305/.341/.603 slash line with 29 home runs and 23 doubles across 98 games with Reno prior to earning a promotion. Tomas has split time between first base and left field in the minors, though it's unclear what role he'll play with the big club. He hit .272 with 31 homers in 140 games back in 2016.... See More ...

Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Launches four homers
Tomas had four home runs and eight RBI for Triple-A Reno on Monday.
The hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League earned its reputation Monday. The 28-year-old Tomas now has 13 home runs and 37 RBI in 42 games. He was one of several Aces to go yard in what ended up a 25-8 win over Tacoma. Kevin Cron blasted two homers while Tim Locastro, Domingo Leyba, Matt Szczur and Caleb Joseph hit one apiece....

Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Shipped to minors camp
Tomas was reassigned to minor-league camp Tuesday.
Tomas put together a solid spring, hitting .448/.467/.621 with five doubles and a 4:5 BB:K through 15 games (29 at-bats), but he was never expected to break camp with the Diamondbacks. At this point, it seems likely that the 28-year-old will play out the remainder of his contract in the minors, where he spent all of the 2018 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Not planning to opt out
Tomas will not exercise the opt-out clause in his contract with the Diamondbacks this offseason, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
This comes as no surprise, as Tomas is guaranteed $32.5 million over the next two seasons. Given his defensive limitations, it seems likely that the soon-to-be 28-year-old will play out his contract in the minors, where he spent all of 2018, hitting .262/.280/.465 with 14 homers in 106 games for Triple-A Reno....

Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Outrighted to Triple-A
Tomas was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Monday.
As expected, no team wanted to claim Tomas, who has three years and $46 million left on his contract. Tomas could face a scenario close to that of fellow countryman Rusney Castillo, who flamed out at the major-league level but was paid far too much for another team to take a chance on him. Castillo was outrighted in mid-2016 and hasn't been close to returning to the big leagues since. Tomas is likely to suffer a similar fate, as his combination of terrible defense (-15.9 runs per 150 games according to UZR) and mediocre hitting (98 wRC+) isn't enough to earn him a major-league job....

Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Placed on outright waivers
Tomas was placed on outright waivers Saturday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Tomas failed to make the Diamondbacks' Opening Day roster this season despite Steven Souza opening the year on the disabled list with a pectoral injury. It wasn't a good sign for Tomas' future with Arizona, and he'll now almost certainly clear waivers and be removed from the 40-man roster, as it's unlikely that another team will pick up the remaining three years and $46 million left on his contract. The 27-year-old owns a career 98 wRC+ and a very poor defensive reputation, making it hard for a team to justify keeping him on their roster, let alone paying him over $15 million a year....

Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Optioned to Triple-A
Tomas was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Sunday.
Tomas -- who posted an 89 wRC+ in his injury-plagued 2017 season -- put together a solid spring (.293 average and .370 OBP) but will open the upcoming season in the minor leagues. It was thought that Tomas would have a good shot at making the Opening Day roster following outfielder Steven Souza's pectoral injury, but the Diamondbacks have opted to fill his role with other in-house options. Tomas will likely make his way back to the big leagues at some point during the upcoming season, but his redraft value takes a massive hit with this news.... See More ... See Less
