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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tomas could play more than previously expected to begin 2018 with Steven Souza (pectoral) likely out until mid-May.
Tomas has been putting together a strong spring at the plate, batting .316/.395/.474 with a 5:11 BB:K. The problem is that he's a huge negative defensively in the outfield. With that in mind, it will likely be Jarrod Dyson who benefits the most from Souza's injury -- Dyson will presumably start against right-handed pitching with Tomas getting the nod against lefties. Even a short-side platoon role is a major upgrade for Tomas from what was a bleak outlook for opportunities in Arizona.
Tomas has gone 11-for-33 with a 9:4 K:BB over 13 Cactus League appearances.
Tomas' strong showing at the plate this spring likely won't be enough to earn him regular at-bats once Opening Day arrives, as the 26-year-old is now the club's fifth outfielder following the offseason acquisitions of Steven Souza and Jarrod Dyson. Because Tomas doesn't offer any defensive value, it will likely be difficult for him to earn much more than the occasional pinch-hitting appearance or spot start while he remains in Arizona. With that in mind, the Diamondbacks could be looking into trading Tomas to an American League team in need of an upgrade at designated hitter. With Tomas due $10 million in 2018 and his contract containing player options worth a combined $32.5 million over the next two seasons, it's unlikely the Diamondbacks would be able to fetch anything of value in any potential deal.
Tomas (groin) is starting in left field and batting fifth in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Brewers, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Tomas had a rough offseason this year, undergoing groin surgery in December and receiving a citation for reckless driving and criminal speeding in January. The power-hitting outfielder will look to put all that behind him as he grabs his first start of spring training Sunday. Following the acquisition of Steven Souza from Tampa Bay, Tomas probably will open the year as a reserve outfielder for the Diamondbacks. He's a relatively unattractive fantasy option in most 2018 drafts unless he finds himself in a more favorable situation for playing time.
Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Saturday that Tomas (groin) has received full medical clearance for spring training, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Tomas was limited to just 47 games a season ago due to a pair of core-muscle surgeries, with the latter procedure shutting him down for good in late August. Even though he's now back to full strength, Tomas isn't guaranteed to open the season as Arizona's starting left fielder, with his defensive limitations and poor on-base skills prompting Luvollo to open up the competition at the position. Fortunately for Tomas, one of his top challengers to the starting role, Chris Owings (finger), is expected to be limited at the start of the spring, but the Cuban import will still need to perform well in Cactus League games and workouts in order to come away with the starting gig. Even with a strong spring, the possibility remains that Tomas will open the season on the bench while the Diamondbacks continue to pursue re-signing free agent J.D. Martinez.
Arizona manager Torey Lovullo suggested Wednesday that Tomas (groin) has been given no assurances that he'll open the season as the Diamondbacks' starting left fielder, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Tomas currently tops the depth chart in left field, but it's no secret that the Diamondbacks have interest in re-signing free agent J.D. Martinez, who continues to negotiate with the team. Even if Martinez heads elsewhere, the Diamondbacks could explore other corner-outfield options via trade and/or free agency, or look to the versatile Chris Owings to push Tomas for a starting gig. In addition to the Diamondbacks' lack of commitment, Tomas' outlook is further dimmed by his checkered health history -- he missed about two thirds of the 2017 campaign with a core-muscle injury that ultimately required season-ending surgery in August -- and the new installation of a humidor at Chase Field, which is expected to suppress home-run production at the stadium relative to previous years.
Tomas (groin) was arrested and charged with reckless driving and criminal speeding Thursday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Tomas was cited Thursday morning while allegedly driving 105 mph in the Phoenix area. Though he could potentially face up to 30 days of jail time or receive a court-issued fine, it's unlikely that Tomas will receive a suspension from the MLB.
Tomas (groin) underwent surgery for the second time in the past four months to clean out scar tissue that was causing irritation in his core, MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports.
Tomas missed the rest of the 2017 season after undergoing surgery in late August, which stemmed from a right groin injury he suffered in early June. It appears as though the 27-year-old should be good to go by the time spring training rolls around, as this second procedure was performed to limit the irritation Tomas was feeling in the area.
Tomas (groin) was reinstated from the 60-day DL on Friday.
Tomas, who underwent core surgery in late August, should be ready to go by the time the team reports to spring training next year. The soon-to-be 27-year-old slashed .241/.294/.464 with eight home runs and 32 RBI in 47 games with the Diamondbacks in 2017.
Tomas (groin) underwent successful core surgery Tuesday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Following the procedure, Tomas' season is almost certainly over, but he should be back to full strength before the start of spring training.
The Diamondbacks aren't expecting Tomas to play again this season with the outfielder set to undergo surgery Tuesday to address a core injury, Danny Knobler of MLB.com reports.
Tomas, who has been sidelined since June 3 due to right groin tendinitis, has had two rehab assignments shut down as a result of setbacks with the injury, with his most recent stint with the Diamondbacks' rookie-level Arizona League affiliate earlier this month coming to an end after he experienced pain while running the bases. The surgery should help remedy any recurring issues, but the recovery timetable associated with the procedure won't allow him to get back on the field before the season ends. That being said, Tomas shouldn't endure any significant delays during his offseason workouts, putting him in line to enter spring training at full strength.
