Rangers' Domingo Leyba: Signed by Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Friday.

The 25-year-old was assigned to Triple-A Round Rock. Leyba has appeared in 34 major-league games this season while slashing .115/.191/.161 but has fared much better in the minors.

Domingo Leyba: Released by Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba was released by the Orioles on Thursday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

Leyba was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk in early August, and he went 2-for-8 with a walk and a strikeout in three minor-league games since he rejoined the Tides. The 25-year-old will be free to seek out other opportunities following his release.

Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Outrighted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles outrighted Leyba to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday.

Leyba's .115/.198/.161 slash line across 96 plate appearances on the season between the Diamondbacks and Orioles did little to attract interest from other teams around the league when Baltimore exposed him to waivers last week. Though Leyba no longer possesses a spot on the Orioles' 40-man roster, he'll remain in the organization as infield depth at Triple-A.

Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Loses roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles designated Leyba for assignment Wednesday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports.

Before Leyba was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday, the Orioles gave him a look as an everyday player in the middle infield. The 25-year-old switch-hitter didn't impress during his two-and-a-half-month stay in the majors, slashing .115/.198/.161 with a 24 percent strikeout rate over 96 plate appearances. If he goes unclaimed off waivers, Leyba will remain in the organization and continue to play for Norfolk.

Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.

Leyba is 0-for-19 over his past eight games and will return to the minors with Richie Martin (wrist) coming back from the injured list. Leyba has appeared in 21 games for Baltimore this season and has a .154/.236/.215 slash line in 72 plate appearances.

Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba isn't starting Friday's game against the Tigers.

Leyba had started each of the last four games, but he went 0-for-12 with a walk and four strikeouts. Pat Valaika will start at the keystone and bat ninth.

Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Picks up work at keystone
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba will start at second base and bat ninth Wednesday against the Marlins, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

He'll be manning the keystone for the third game in a row and appears to have temporarily moved ahead of the struggling Pat Valaika on the depth chart. Leyba has gone 0-for-5 over his previous two starts to drop his season average to .130, so he likely won't have a long leash in an everyday role.

Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba will sit Tuesday against the Rays, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

Leyba was in the starting lineup for nine straight games from June 27 through July 7, appearing against both righties and lefties, but it looks as though he's since slipped into a platoon role. Since that run ended, he's started against all four righties the Orioles have faced while sitting against all three lefties -- including Tuesday's starter for Tampa, Shane McClanahan. Pat Valaika starts at second base in his absence.

Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Gets breather Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba isn't starting Monday's game against the Rays, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Leyba had started each of the last two games and went 1-for-7 with a double, a run, an RBI and a strikeout during that time. Pat Valaika will start at second base and bat eighth.

July 18, 2021 12:44 PM
Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Emerging as primary second baseman
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba will start at second base and bat sixth Sunday against the Royals.

Since being called up from Triple-A Norfolk on June 27, Leyba has seemingly usurped Pat Valaika as manager Brandon Hyde's preferred option at the keystone. Leyba will pick up his fourth start in five games Sunday, but he'll likely need to improve his production at the plate to ensure he sticks atop the depth chart. He's slashing an unimpressive .209/.292/.279 in 43 at-bats since his call-up.

July 12, 2021 10:44 PM
Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Plates two in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI and a walk in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the White Sox.

Leyba was one of Baltimore's most effective hitters in Saturday's loss. He delivered RBI singles in the fourth and sixth innings to account for the team's first two runs. The infielder has piled up a home run, three RBI and five runs scored in 11 games since he was called up from Triple-A Norfolk. He'll likely continue to be in the mix for playing time at second and third base in competition with Pat Valaika and Kelvin Gutierrez.

July 10, 2021 04:04 PM
Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba is out of the lineup Friday against the White Sox, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Leyba went 4-for-16 with a homer, three walks and four runs while starting at third base over the past five games with Maikel Franco (ankle) sidelined. Kelvin Gutierrez will take over at the hot corner Friday.

Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Knocks solo home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in Friday's 8-7 loss to the Angels.

Leyba took Angels starter Griffin Canning deep in the second inning for his first major-league home run. The 25-year-old infielder has hit safely in four of his five games with Baltimore. While he started Friday at third base to cover for Maikel Franco (ankle), Leyba's best path to playing time remains as part of a timeshare with Pat Valaika at the keystone.

June 27, 2021 11:56 AM
Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Recalled Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday.

Leyba's promotion comes in the midst of a flurry of roster moves, as Ryan McKenna and Ramon Urias also received the call from Norfolk while Freddy Galvis (quad) was placed on the IL. Leyba did not record a hit in 22 at-bats with Arizona earlier this year before being DFA'd and claimed by Baltimore in early June. He'll man second base and bat sixth during the series finale against Toronto.

June 4, 2021 06:04 PM
Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Claimed by Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Friday and optioned to Triple-A Norfolk, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

Leyba will get to remain on a 40-man roster after getting designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. While he won't get a big-league opportunity right away, Leyba could get the chance to carve out a role at second base in Baltimore, as the team lacks an established option at the position. Leyba owns a very poor .149/.241/.234 slash line through his first 54 major-league plate appearances, however, so it's far from guaranteed that he'll get meaningful at-bats for his new team.

June 2, 2021 01:32 PM
Diamondbacks' Domingo Leyba: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Leyba appeared in 13 games during his stint on the major-league roster, but he failed to record a hit and struck out seven times in 22 at-bats. His removal from the 40-man roster will clear space for Ildemaro Vargas, who was acquired by Arizona in a corresponding move.

Diamondbacks' Domingo Leyba: Looking for first hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba started at second base and went 0-for-3 in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Leyba recently had his contract selected from Triple-A Reno after the Diamondbacks placed Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) on the injured list. Leyba mashed for the Aces, hitting four home runs while positing a 1.400 OPS in 37 plate appearances, but he's still looking for his first hit since joining Arizona. He'll primarily back up at second base, third base and shortstop, behind Josh Rojas, Eduardo Escobar and Nick Ahmed while he's in the majors.

Diamondbacks' Domingo Leyba: Contract selected by Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba had his contract selected by the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

The 25-year-old was designated for assignment in November but will rejoin the 40-man roster while Arizona battles through a rash of injuries. Leyba went 7-for-25 with an .807 OPS in his first taste of big-league action during 2019, and he didn't see the field last year.

March 24, 2021 04:32 PM
Diamondbacks' Domingo Leyba: Denied Opening Day roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Diamondbacks reassigned Leyba on Wednesday.

Leyba's chances of securing an Opening Day role with the Diamondbacks were effectively dashed after he was outrighted off the 40-man roster in November, but he still got the opportunity to compete for a job this spring. The 25-year-old wasn't able to capitalize on his opportunities, however, going 5-for-34 in Cactus League play before being reassigned. Expect him to report to Triple-A Reno when its season begins in May.

November 20, 2020 03:20 PM
Diamondbacks' Domingo Leyba: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leyba was outrighted to Triple-A Reno by the Diamondbacks on Friday.

The 25-year-old missed the entirety of the 2020 campaign while serving an 80-game suspension after testing positive for PEDs, and he's now been removed from Arizona's 40-man roster. Leyba made his major-league debut in 2019 and went 7-for-25 with two doubles, a triple, six runs and five RBI.
