  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Nabs sixth steal

    Arozarena went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blue Jays.

    Three of Arozarena's six steals on the year have come in the last nine games, but he otherwise is struggling to make an impact. The 27-year-old is slashing .218/.265/.339 on the season with one homer, nine RBI and 14 runs through 32 contests.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Records fifth steal

    Arozarena went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Wednesday's 4-2 extra-inning win over the Angels.

    The 27-year-old has yet to really get hot this season, but he's finding a way to contribute while trying to lock in his swing. Arozarena is slashing .223/.266/.347 on the season with one homer, five steals, nine RBI and 14 runs through 31 contests, though he is batting .273 (12-for-44) through 11 games in May.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Swats first homer of 2022

    Arozarena went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 11-3 loss to the Angels.

    He opened the scoring in the top of the fourth inning by taking Noah Syndergaard deep, but the Angels immediately responded with three runs in the bottom of the frame, and the rout was on. The long ball was Arozarena's first of the year, but he's hit safely in nine of the last 10 games and boasts a .310/.341/.524 slash line over that stretch with a steal, five runs and five RBI.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Collects four hits

    Arozarena went 4-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 8-7 win against the Mariners.

    Arozarena was dealing with some knee soreness but showed no signs of it Friday. He knocked an RBI single as part of a three-run third inning for the Rays. The 27-year-old later doubled and scored in the fifth before singling and scoring a second run in the ninth. It was his first game with at least three hits since April 17 and he's still slashing just .233/.269/.350 through 108 plate appearances.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Playing, but not 100 percent

    Arozarena, who was originally in Friday's lineup against the Mariners as the left fielder, will DH due to lingering left knee soreness, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    He apparently picked up the soreness during Wednesday's game against the A's, and while he played the field Thursday, he asked to be the designated hitter in this one. It's encouraging that Arozarena is playing through the ailment, but it's also possible he could need a day or two off in the near future if the soreness doesn't subside.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Records fourth stolen base

    Arozarena went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double, a run scored and a stolen base Wednesday against the Athletics.

    Arozarena hit his ninth double of the season in the sixth inning and proceeded to steal third base -- his fourth swipe of the campaign. He reached base again two frames later on a walk, and he ultimately came around to score on a two-run single by Manuel Margot. Arozarena extended his hitting streak to five games with the performance, a span during which he's recorded four extra-base hits, two RBI and a run.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Swipes third bag

    Arozarena went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base Friday against the Twins.

    Arozarena reached base for the only time in the first inning and immediately stole second base. He now has three steals on the season and has yet to be caught. While that's positive, he has only four hits across his last 35 at-bats while striking out at a 33.3 percent clip. As a result, Arozarena is hitting just .192/.234/.274 for the season, and he has yet to go yard.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Not starting Thursday

    Arozarena isn't starting Thursday against the Mariners, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Arozarena will get his first day off since April 11 after he went 2-for-19 with three runs, a stolen base, a walk and seven strikeouts in his last five appearances. Harold Ramirez will serve as the designated hitter and bat fifth.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Tallies another stolen base

    Arozarena went 0-for-3 with a walk, a run and a stolen base Wednesday against the Mariners.

    Arozarena was hitless but still managed to have a productive performance. He walked to lead off the bottom of the first inning and immediately stole second base -- his second swipe of the campaign -- and came around to score on an infield single by Harold Ramirez. Arozarena has just a .203 average and has yet to homer across 72 plate appearances to begin the season, though his production on the basepaths and nine runs scored are both positives in his stat line.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Swipes first bag

    Arozarena went 1-for-4 with a double, an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base Wednesday against the Cubs.

    Arozarena had a productive series against the Cubs, racking up four runs scored and two RBI across three games despite only collecting two hits. He also delivered his first stolen base of the season Wednesday after doubling home a run in the opening inning. Arozarena has only a .220/.235/.340 line across 51 plate appearances early on in the campaign, but he has dropped his strikeout rate to 23.5 percent and has delivered four RBI and six runs scored.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Fills box score

    Arozarena went 1-for-4 with a double, a walk, two runs scored and an RBI on Tuesday against the Cubs.

    Arozarena broke open the game in Tampa Bay's favor in the seventh inning, doubling in Taylor Walls. He was then driven in on a single by Harold Ramirez, accounting for the majority of his production. Arozarena has now collected five hits in his last 16 at-bats, including three doubles to go along with three runs scored and two RBI.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Doubles twice

    Arozarena went 3-for-5 with a double, a run and a RBI in a 9-3 win Sunday over the White Sox.

    Arozarena singled and scored in the first, doubled in the second and had an RBI double in the eighth. It was his best offensive game of the season and first multi-hit game since Opening Day. After walking in an above-average 9.3% of his plate appearances last season, the outfielder has not yet walked in 38 plate appearances in 2022.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Ejected from Saturday's game

    Arozarena was ejected from Saturday's game against the White Sox in the top of the sixth inning, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Arozarena took a called third strike in the top of the sixth frame, and he was thrown out of the game after tossing his bat in disgust. Prior to his departure, he went 1-for-3 with a strikeout. Assuming Saturday's incident doesn't lead to a suspension, the 27-year-old should be available for Sunday's series finale.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Off to slow start

    Arozarena went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored Thursday against Oakland.

    Arozarena doubled to lead off the second inning and ultimately came around to score on a base hit by Manuel Margot. After a multi-hit effort Opening Day, Arozarena has just three hits across his last 22 at-bats. That has led to a dismal .192 batting average, but his 23.1 percent strikeout rate is an improvement on his career norm. If Arozarena continues to make contact, hits should start to fill in and his line will improve significantly in short order.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Sitting Monday

    Arozarena will sit Monday against Oakland, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

    Arozarena started all three games in the opening series against the Orioles, grabbing three hits. The Rays will turn to their depth throughout the season to give the regulars plenty of rest, however, and it's Arozarena's turn to sit this time around. Josh Lowe will get the start in left field.

  • Rays' Randy Arozarena: Enjoying productive spring

    Arozarena is hitting .417/.462/.500 with two doubles, three RBI and 2:2 BB:K this spring.

    As exciting a player as Arozarena is with his power-speed combo and flair for the dramatic, last year's 28.1 percent strikeout rate and .222 xBA have had a lot of analysts forecasting a dropoff this season. But he wasn't a whiff machine in the minors, and with just two strikeouts in 26 spring plate appearances, Arozarena has been demonstrating much-improved bat-to-ball skills. If he can carry that forward into the regular season, he could outperform his draft position by a considerable margin. Although he's 27 years old, Arozarena has only one full MLB season under his belt, so it's hardly unreasonable to think that he has some development left in him.
