Yankees' Matt Duffy: Reassigned to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy was reassigned to the Yankees' alternate training site Tuesday.

Duffy was in contention for a major-league roster spot with DJ LeMahieu's (illness) status in question, but Duffy will head to alternate camp as LeMahieu looks to be on track to return soon. The 29-year-old could be in consideration for a spot on the 30-man roster if injuries pile up in the infield this season.

Yankees' Matt Duffy: Chance to make Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy is being considered for a roster spot with the Yankees for Opening Day, given D.J. LeMahieu's trip to the IL, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

Duffy has some experience at second base (18 games) but has also shifted over to the infield with the Rays on many occasions. LeMahieu's status in returning from a positive COVID-19 test is uncertain, while the Yankees' other options at second base are Tyler Wade and Thairo Estrada.

Yankees' Matt Duffy: Signs with Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy signed with the Yankees on Sunday and was added to the team's 60-man player pool.

Duffy logged 169 plate appearances with Tampa Bay last season, slashing .252/.343/.327 with a home run and 12 RBI. The utilityman should compete for a spot on the team's 30-man roster to open the 2020 campaign.

Rangers' Matt Duffy: Still in consideration for roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy could benefit by the uncertainty in the battle for the Rangers' starting job at first base, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Duffy has mostly played third base during his career, but the first-base battle between Ronald Guzman and Greg Bird has the Rangers thinking about alternate plans. Neither player has grabbed hold of the job, which has manager Chris Woodward thinking about moving third baseman Todd Frazier to first base, opening up an opportunity for Duffy or Isiah Kiner-Falefa at the hot corner. The question is whether Duffy can provide offense worthy of a corner infielder.

Rangers' Matt Duffy: Lands NRI deal with Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy agreed Thursday with the Rangers on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to big-league spring training, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. The deal is worth $1 million if Duffy is added to the Rangers' MLB roster and contains up to $1.5 million in additional incentives.

Duffy has been just about a league-average hitter (.282/.338/.380 career slash line, 101 wRC+) over parts of five seasons in the majors, but extended absences due to injuries in each of the past three years have sent his career on a downward trajectory. The 28-year-old will at least enter spring training at full health, though that alone won't be enough to guarantee him a spot on the Rangers' Opening Day roster. Even if he fares well in Cactus League action, Duffy will likely need youngsters Nick Solak and Isiah Kiner-Falefa to struggle in order to claim a reserve infield job.

Matt Duffy: Cut loose by Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy was released by the Rays on Friday.

Duffy was booted from the 40-man roster Wednesday, and after passing through waivers he's become a free agent. He spent 46 games with the Rays in 2019, hitting .252 with a home run and 12 RBI over that stretch.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy was designated for assignment by the Rays on Wednesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Duffy was limited to 46 games as he endured an injury-plagued 2019, and he didn't perform well when healthy with a .252/.343/.327 slash line and one home run. The 28-year-old's lack of power (22 home runs in 452 career games) provides a significant limit on his value at third base.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Slugs long-awaited first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Duffy finally went deep in the penultimate game of his truncated season, accounting for the only run of the day for the Rays in the process. The veteran is enjoying a strong month heading into Wednesday's American League Wild Card Game, with Saturday's multi-hit effort pushing his average in September to .333.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Hot at plate in September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy, who went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in a win over the Yankees on Wednesday, is hitting .316 (12-for-38) with six extra-base hits (three doubles, three home runs) over 46 plate appearances in September.

Some of his teammates have been grabbing the headlines recently with their game-winning hits, yet Duffy has rather quietly hit safely in 12 of his last 13 games. The veteran's .248/.340/.305 line for the season leaves something to be desired in terms of both batting average and slugging percentage, but his current stretch of hitting is a particularly welcome sight considering it's come during the Rays' playoff push and the fact he hit just .189 in August.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Serves as agitator in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy went 1-for-1 with an RBI single, a sacrifice fly and two walks in a loss to the Rangers on Wednesday. He was also caught stealing on his only attempt.

Duffy was a thorn in the side of Rangers pitching before eventually being pinch run for by Johnny Davis in the seventh inning. The veteran infielder has seen spotty playing time in September, following a forgettable August during which he hit just .189. He's struggled to put good wood on the ball as well, as Duffy is still in search of his first home run of the season and has only five extra-base hits (all doubles) across 131 plate appearances.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Moves to bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

After drawing five consecutive starts at the hot corner, Duffy will cede the position to Joey Wendle in the series finale. With Duffy batting .080 over his last eight games and Wendle offering a left-handed alternative at third base now that he's healthy again, it's possible that Duffy transitions into more of a part-time role heading into the final month of the season.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Takes seat Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy is not in Monday's lineup against the Mariners, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

While Duffy and Mike Brosseau are both right-handed, Brosseau has a more recent track record of crushing lefties, so he will get the start against southpaw Marco Gonzales. Duffy is hitting .260/.329/.312 with zero home runs and zero steals in 20 games this season.

August 17, 2019 02:40 PM
Rays' Matt Duffy: Lone bright spot in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy went 3-for-4 in a loss to the Tigers on Friday.

Duffy produced the only multi-hit effort of the night for the Rays, who were held to five hits overall. The veteran infielder has mostly hit the ground running after finally kicking off his season July 23, as he now has six multi-hit efforts and is slashing a solid .290/.355/.348 over his first 76 plate appearances.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Stellar night in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy went 4-for-4 with three RBI from a pair of run-scoring singles and also drew a walk in a win over the Padres on Monday.

Duffy's perfect night at the plate pushed his average to .298 and served as his second multi-hit effort over the last three games. The veteran infielder is making good use of his opportunities after enduring another extended battle with nagging injuries, and with Yandy Diaz (foot) projected out for the remainder of the season, Duffy's playing time at third base should be locked in.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy is not in Sunday's lineup against the Mariners, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

He is hitting .245/.310/.345 with zero home runs and zero steals in 53 at-bats this season. Mike Brosseau will start at third base and hit sixth.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Goes for extra bases in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy went 2-for-3 with a double and a run in a win over the Mariners on Friday.

Duffy laced his fourth double of the season -- his first extra-base hit since July 30 -- off Marco Gonzales in the win. The veteran infielder has yet to go deep since finally making his season debut July 23, but he's hitting a solid .265 over the first 12 games in which he's recorded at least one official at-bat.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Sitting out series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Duffy will cede third base duties to Mike Brosseau as the Rays wrap up their series with Toronto. The two will likely continue to share time at the hot corner until the Rays return Yandy Diaz (foot) from the 10-day injured list.

August 5, 2019 02:56 PM
Rays' Matt Duffy: Day off Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy is not in the lineup Monday against Toronto, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Duffy started 10 straight games since returning from a hamstring injury, posting a mediocre .238/.304/.310 line at the plate. Mike Brosseau will handle the hot corner in his absence.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Leading off versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy will start at third base and bat leadoff Sunday against the Marlins, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

The Rays appear to have at least temporarily committed to Duffy as their main leadoff option against left-handed pitching, as he'll hit atop the lineup for the team's third straight matchup versus a southpaw (Caleb Smith). Duffy has also seen steady action against right-handed pitching over the past two weeks and should be a fixture in the starting nine until the Rays return Yandy Diaz (foot) from the 10-day injured list.

Rays' Matt Duffy: Hitting well since debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duffy, who went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a walk in a win over the Blue Jays on Sunday, is 6-for-21 with two doubles, two RBI and two walks over his first five games since making his season debut July 23.

The oft-injured veteran has been thrust right into an everyday opportunity at third base with Yandy Diaz (foot) on the injured list. That he's been able to display solid timing at the plate after such a delayed season debut is certainly encouraging, and Duffy is making a strong early case to force manager Kevin Cash's hand to continue affording him steady playing time even when Diaz returns to health.
