Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Blasts third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Orioles.

Remarkably, given the circumstances of the 2020 season and the Marlins' schedule in particular, Aguilar is now the third player in franchise history to homer three times in the club's first four games. Despite the power display, the 30-year-old is only hitting .250 (4-for-16) to begin the year, but he'll continue to fill a prominent role in the heart of the Miami order.

Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Team's schedule on hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar and the rest of the Marlins won't play for at least a week due to the team's COVID-19 outbreak, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

The rest of the Marlins' games this week have been postponed after roughly half of the team's active roster tested positive for the virus. It's not clear whether or not Aguilar is part of that group, but the earliest he'll be taking the field appears to be next Tuesday against the Phillies.

Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Continues hot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar went 2-for-3 with two walks, a home run, one RBI and two runs scored Sunday against the Phillies.

Aguilar reached base four times Sunday to help power the Marlins to an 11-run offensive performance. His most notable contribution came in the second inning when he took Vince Velasquez yard for his second homer of the season. After a disappointing 2019, Aguilar's hot start is a hopeful sign for a bounceback campaign.

Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Powers Miami with two-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in the Marlins' 5-2 win over the Phillies on Opening Day.

Aaron Nola and Sandy Alcantara were tied 1-1 in the sixth inning before Aguilar created some separation with his first long ball as a Marlin. Back in March, there was talk that Aguilar would likely hit cleanup for the team, but he hit second in the opener between Jonathan Villar and Corey Dickerson.

Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Likely to hit cleanup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar has consistently hit fourth in the Marlins' early spring contests, a likely indication of the regular-season batting order, Jordan McPherson of The Miami Herald reports.

He's been following Jonathan Villar, Brian Anderson and Corey Dickerson in the order. After erupting for 35 homers and 108 RBI in 2018, Aguilar took a massive step backwards last year, but the Marlins are hoping he can regain something close to his prior form in the cleanup spot.

Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Wins arbitration case
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar will make $2.575 million this season after winning his arbitration case, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Aguilar was claimed off waivers by the Marlins in December and appears to be lined up to play a significant role at first base this season. He'll have to hit far better than he did last season if that's to happen, however, as his .236/.325/.389 line in 369 games for the Brewers and Rays last season isn't nearly good enough for the position.

Marlins' Jesus Aguilar: Claimed by Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar was claimed off waivers by the Marlins on Monday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

The Marlins have some middling in-house options at first base in Garrett Cooper and prospect Lewin Diaz, who could debut late this summer, but Aguilar will enter camp with a solid chance to make the Opening Day roster, especially since Cooper is capable of playing the outfield. The 29-year-old first baseman hit 35 home runs with a 135 wRC+ in 2018, but regressed last season, slashing .236/.325/.389 with 12 home runs in 369 plate appearances. Cooper and Aguilar are both right-handed, but Cooper has reverse splits for his career (117 wRC+ against righties, 85 wRC+ against lefties), so perhaps they could form a platoon if Aguilar does not win the job outright.

Rays' Jesus Aguilar: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays designated Aguilar for assignment Wednesday, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Aguilar failed to follow up his breakout 2018 campaign, hitting just .236/.325/.389 with 12 homers in 131 games with the Brewers and Rays last season. He'll make way on the 40-man roster for Brian O'Grady, who was acquired in a trade with the Reds in a corresponding move.

Rays' Jesus Aguilar: Doesn't make ALDS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar is not on the Rays' ALDS roster.

Aguilar was serviceable but not particularly great in 37 games for the Rays, hitting .261/.336/.424. With Yandy Diaz now back from his foot injury, Aguilar is no longer needed as a defensively limited right-handed bat.

Rays' Jesus Aguilar: Homers as pinch hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar hit a two-run homer in his only at-bat in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

Aguilar came on as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning and drilled a two-run shot to right center field. The 29-year-old has played sparingly in September, notching only five starts and being lifted for a pinch hitter in three of those games. After a breakout 2018 season in which Aguilar hit 35 homers and racked up 108 RBI for Milwaukee, he has regressed drastically in 2019, compiling only 12 long balls and driving in 48 runs.

Rays' Jesus Aguilar: Homers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and another RBI in Friday's victory over the Angels.

Aguilar was the third Tampa Bay batter to take Andrew Heaney deep in the third inning, this time with a 408-foot solo shot. The 29-year-old now has 11 home runs on the season while slashing a solid .282/.356/.436 across 27 games since getting traded to the Rays.

Rays' Jesus Aguilar: Powers Rays to victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run Friday against the Indians.

Aguilar came up with one of the biggest hits of the night, slugging a three-run homer over the fence in left during the seventh inning. The 29-year-old is slashing .238/.327/.383 with 10 homers and 43 RBI over 117 games this year.

Rays' Jesus Aguilar: Back on bench versus righty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Aguilar has benefited from the Rays facing a heavy slate of lefty pitching lately, but he'll head to the bench Sunday after four straight starts with righty Dylan Bundy on the bump for Baltimore. Platoon mate Ji-Man Choi will re-enter the starting nine at first base in Aguilar's stead.

Rays' Jesus Aguilar: Slugs pair of doubles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar went 2-for-3 with two doubles, a walk and a run in a win over the Orioles on Friday.

Aguilar drew the start with lefty Ty Blach on the hill for the Orioles and came through with his first multi-hit effort since Aug. 12. The 29-year-old had been mired in a 2-for-18 skid prior to Friday's game, but he's still slashing an impressive .321/.403/.434 over his first 61 plate appearances with the Rays.

Rays' Jesus Aguilar: Timely hitting in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar went 2-for-5 with a run-scoring fielder's choice, an RBI single, a walk and two runs in a win over the Padres on Monday.

Aguilar came through with his fourth and fifth RBI since joining the Rays while generating his third consecutive two-hit tally. His most recent four starts have come against a left-handed starter or a southpaw primary pitcher behind an opener; however, it's worth noting he's also excelled against righties since arriving from the Brewers at the deadline, going 8-for-17 with a home run, three RBI, three walks and five runs versus that handedness.

August 12, 2019 01:12 PM
Rays' Jesus Aguilar: Red-hot since arrival
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar, who went 2-for-3 in a win over the Mariners on Sunday, is hitting .385 (10-for-26) with one home run, three RBI, three walks and five runs since joining the Rays via trade at the deadline.

The slugger had scuffled to a .225/.320/.374 line across 262 plate appearances with the Brewers prior to being moved at the deadline. However, the resurgence the Rays felt Aguilar was capable of has quickly manifested, as the 29-year-old looks like a completely different hitter since arriving. While the overall lack of extra-base hits early on is notable to an extent, there's no reason to think those won't soon start to fall as well, given Aguilar's solid track record in that regard over multiple seasons.

Rays' Jesus Aguilar: Back on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.

Aguilar had started at either first base or designated hitter in each of the previous three games, going 4-for-12 with a home run and two RBI. Interestingly enough, two of those starts came against right-handed pitching, but it's generally expected that Aguilar will see most of his opportunities as a short-side platoon mate for Ji-Man Choi. That role should make Aguilar a decent option in AL-only formats, though his mixed-league viability is more dubious due to his shaky playing-time outlook.

Rays' Jesus Aguilar: First homer in new digs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar went 2-for-4 with a run-scoring sacrifice fly, a solo home run and two runs scored overall in a win over the Marlins on Sunday.

Aguilar belted his first American League home run in the eighth inning to cap off the victory for the Rays. The slugger got the starting nod at first base and hit third with lefty Caleb Smith on the mound for Miami, giving him a pair of two-hit efforts in his first pair of contests in his new locale.

Rays' Jesus Aguilar: Successful team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday.

Aguilar wasted no time endearing himself to both his new squad and Rays fans, setting the table nicely for some of his bottom-of-the-order teammates by getting on base four times. Aguilar served as the designated hitter in his first taste of game action with the Rays, and he notably drew the start against the right-handed Andrew Cashner despite previous reports that the majority of his workload would come against southpaws.

Rays' Jesus Aguilar: Expected to play against lefties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Aguilar, who was acquired in a trade with the Brewers on Wednesday, is expected to get consistent playing time against left-handed pitching while primarily alternating between first base and designated hitter, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. "He's going to play a bunch against lefties," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "We'll find if it's first base, DH and I know he's played a little bit of third this year. He's going to be in there. We've already shown the way we mix and match and the versatility. We count on our entire roster, and he'll play a big role, highly against left-handed pitching."

Aguilar is having an underwhelming season in the surface, although Toribio cites several encouraging ancillary metrics that could hint at an imminent breakout. Aguilar's 90.1 mph average exit velocity is the highest of his career, while his 40.4 percent hard-contact rate is just under his career 41.8 percent figure. Then, his expected .447 slugging percentage is 73 points higher than his actual .374 figure. and he finished July slashing .298/.346/.574 across 52 plate appearances, easily his best month at the plate this season.
