Rays' Randy Arozarena: Getting reps at second base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena (illness), who continues to work on his conditioning at the team's alternate training site in Port Charlotte, is taking some reps at second base, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

The plan is still for Arozarena to primarily man outfield spots, which he did in all 308 of his professional regular-season games while with the Cardinals organization. Arozarena had taken reps at second in the past, however, including during spring training this year, and the enhanced positional versatility should only help both player and team once the promising 25-year-old is called up to the big-league roster.

Rays' Randy Arozarena: Not yet day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Kevin Cash recently said that Arozarena (COVID-19) will need a while to get back into game shape, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Arozarena has cleared all health-related protocols since testing positive for COVID-19, but because he missed all of summer camp before reporting to the Rays' alternate training site last week, he'll likely need at least another week to get his conditioning in order. MLB rosters are set to be reduced from 30 to 28 men beginning Friday, so Arozarena could have even more difficulty earning a look with the big club in the near future unless the Rays' outfield depth is tested. However, it is worth noting Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports there are positive reports about the promising prospect stemming from Port Charlotte, with manager Kevin Cash noting Arozarena has been "smacking doubles all over the ballpark" from what he's been told.

Rays' Randy Arozarena: Reporting for workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena (undisclosed) was cleared to report and will begin taking part in baseball activities at the Rays' alternate training site Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 25-year-old was unable to join Tampa Bay throughout summer camp for undisclosed reasons, but he's now on the path toward joining the team. Arozarena figures to require some time before reaching game readiness, though he could eventually work as a reserve/short-side platoon option in the outfield.

Rays' Randy Arozarena: Shifts to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays placed Arozarena (undisclosed) on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Arozarena wasn't present with the Rays at any point during summer camp, with the team providing no explanation behind his absence. Once he's cleared to report to the team, Arozarena will head to the Rays' alternate training site to resume baseball activities. The 25-year-old could join the big club at some point in 2020 as a reserve/short-side platoon outfielder.

Rays' Randy Arozarena: Still absent from camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena (undisclosed) is still absent from camp, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

He is the only Rays player who has not been seen on the field at all during camp. Arozarena was set to be a depth option anyway, and his inability to get work in thus far makes it even less likely that he sees notable playing time early in the season.

Rays' Randy Arozarena: Not yet seen at workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena is one of the players that's yet to be seen at Tropicana Field for the Rays' summer camp workouts, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

It is unclear why the righty hitting outfielder has not yet begun training with his teammates, and the Rays are under no obligation to provide a reason for his absence. The former Cardinals farmhand would likely only get occassional starts against left-handed pitchers during the 2020 season if health allows and he makes the 30-man roster for Opening Day.

Rays' Randy Arozarena: Could play role in 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena will be a part of the Rays' 60-man player pool this season, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

At the very least, Arozarena can provide quality outfield defense while profiling well against left-handed pitchers. Even so, players like Hunter Renfroe and Manuel Margot also have those traits while offering more experience than Arozarena, so he may be limited to a minor role, barring injuries ahead of him on the depth chart.

Rays' Randy Arozarena: Could return with roster expansion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena is a good candidate to be recalled from Triple-A Durham if MLB allows teams to expand rosters to 29 players for at least the first month of the regular season, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Going strictly by his Grapefruit League numbers -- .400 (8-for-20) average, one double, one triple, six RBI, three steals and eight runs -- Arozarena had already done enough to secure an Opening Day roster spot. However, he appeared to be the victim of a numbers game when he was optioned to the Bulls on March 26. That move was made with the expectation that big-league rosters would be capped at 26 players, but the aforementioned likelihood of that number expanding by three at least temporarily opens up a potential opportunity for Arozarena. Tolentino notes the only strike against the 25-year-old is that he's not as defensively versatile as some other candidates, as he plays only the outfield.

Rays' Randy Arozarena: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays optioned Arozarena to Triple-A Durham on Thursday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Tampa Bay's ample depth in the outfield more than anything prevented Arozarena from breaking camp with the big club, as the 25-year-old was otherwise impressive during the Grapefruit League slate with an 8-for-20 showing at the dish. Arozarena's ability to hit from both sides of the plate and play all three outfield spots should put him at the top of the list for a callup if the Rays require another outfielder at some point during the regular season.

Rays' Randy Arozarena: Should be first outfielder promoted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena, who hit .400 (8-for-20) over 12 Grapefruit League games, will likely be the first outfielder called up from the minors this season, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Arozarena got off to a hot start this spring and never let up, replicating the success he's already enjoyed at multiple stops in his professional career, including his initial big-league cup of coffee with the Cardinals last season. The 25-year-old slashed .300/.391/.500 across 23 plate appearances in that brief stint, which followed a spectacular .358/.435/.593 line over 64 games at Triple-A Memphis. Arozarena isn't likely to break through the logjam in the outfield to snag an Opening Day roster spot, but if he's able to carry over his spring momentum to his likely season-opening destination of Triple-A Durham, it likely won't be long before he's back with the Rays.

Rays' Randy Arozarena: Tearing up spring arms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena, who went 1-for-3 with an RBI single in a Grapefruit League loss to the Twins on Tuesday, is 5-for-7 with a double, a triple, four RBI, two walks and five runs over his first four spring training games.

Arozarena was part of a multi-player deal between the Rays and Cardinals in January that also saw Jose Martinez arrive in Tampa. The 24-year-old boasts some stellar seasons on his minor-league resume, including a 2019 stop in Triple-A Memphis during which he slashed .358/.435/.593 with 12 home runs, 38 RBI, nine stolen bases and 51 runs across 283 plate appearances. Arozarena faces stiff competition for an Opening Day roster spot despite being capable of playing all three outfield positions, as the team reinforced its depth during the offseason with a pair of Padres imports, Hunter Renfroe and Manuel Margot. However, Arozarena could certainly force the issue if he manages to maintain his current caliber of play over the course of the exhibition slate.

Rays' Randy Arozarena: Sent to Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena, Jose Martinez and a Compensation A draft pick were traded from the Cardinals to the Rays in exchange for Matt Liberatore, Edgardo Rodriguez and a Compensation B pick Thursday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

Arozarena fared well in his first big-league action a season ago with St. Louis, going 6-for-20 at the dish with a homer, two RBI and two stolen bases in 19 games. The 24-year-old earned his promotion to the majors by putting together a .358/.435/.593 slash line at Triple-A Memphis, where he also hit 12 homers and drove in 38 runs across 64 contests. Arozarena is a possibility to make the 25-man roster to begin the 2020 campaign as a fourth outfielder, though if not he'll certainly be a strong candidate to come up later on in the season.

Cardinals' Randy Arozarena: On roster for NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena is on the roster for the National League Division Series against the Braves.

The 24-year-old saw inconsistent playing time since making his major-league debut in mid-August but managed to record four runs and two stolen bases in 20 at-bats at the big-league level. Arozarena will likely provide depth in the outfield for the Cardinals in the NLDS and could serve as a pinch runner given his speed.

Cardinals' Randy Arozarena: Slugs first career homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two stolen bases and two runs scored Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

Arozarena drew a rare start as both Dexter Fowler and Harrison Bader were absent from the lineup. He took advantage, slugging the first home run of his career in the sixth inning off Merrill Kelly. He also chipped in two stolen bases, highlighted by a swipe of home in the fourth inning. Wednesday marked Arozarena's second start since Aug. 16, so his impact will remain limited unless he picks up more at-bats.

Cardinals' Randy Arozarena: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

Arozarena put together an impressive season at Triple-A, slashing .358/.435/.593 with 12 homers, 38 RBI and nine stolen bases over 64 games. He'll get an opportunity to finish out the 2019 campaign in the majors after rosters expanded Sunday.

Cardinals' Randy Arozarena: Callup imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena is slated to be called up from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Arozarena just logged a three-game stint with the Cardinals, his first taste of the majors, over an eight-day period in August. The 24-year-old tore through Triple-A pitching this season to the tune of a .358/.433/.593 line across 63 games following a promotion from Double-A Springfield.

August 20, 2019 02:48 PM
Cardinals' Randy Arozarena: Back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old outfielder played sparingly after getting the call on Aug. 12, hitting .250 with two strikeouts and zero walks in eight plate appearances. Harrison Bader was recalled in a corresponding move.

Cardinals' Randy Arozarena: Heading back down to Memphis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Although the team has yet to make an official announcement, Arozarena has been informed he'll be sent back down to Triple-A Memphis later Tuesday to make room for the promotion of Harrison Bader, Stu Durando and Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch report.

Arozarena went 2-for-8 over three games in his first taste of big-league action after decimating Triple-A pitching to the tune of a .368/.442/.562 line across 52 games with the Redbirds. The 24-year-old should find himself back at the major-league level in short order when rosters expand in September.

Cardinals' Randy Arozarena: On bench yet again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Reds.

Tommy Edman will start again in right field, with Dexter Fowler in center. Arozarena has made just two starts and one pinch-hit appearance since his promotion from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday, going 2-for-8 with an RBI and two strikeouts. It doesn't seem like St. Louis is ready to turn him loose quite yet.

August 17, 2019 02:32 PM
Cardinals' Randy Arozarena: Out of lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arozarena is not in Friday's lineup against the Reds.

The 24-year-old will ride the bench after making back-to-back starts in which he went 2-for-7 with one RBI. Dexter Fowler will start in center field, leading off, with Tommy Edman starting in right field and bat second.
