Player Outlook
The Diamondbacks traded for Lourdes Gurriel to provide some right-handed thump to a predominantly left-handed outfield. He delivered with a career-high 24 homers, but his 106 wRC+ was its lowest since his rookie campaign. Gurriel split his time between left field and designated hitter, where he established new career highs with 145 games and 592 plate appearances. Despite his home run total, moving from Rogers Center to Chase Field suppressed Gurriel's power, but more importantly he was snake bit on ground ball BABIP as his .202 is well below the .265 mark he recorded coming into the season. Gurriel's defense in left field was stellar with 14 defensive runs saved in only 95 games. His arm and range rated as above average. This should help him maintain regular playing time and not fall back into the short side of a platoon. Gurriel has limited upside, but his floor offers stability to a mixed-league outfield.

  • Diamondbacks' Lourdes Gurriel: Homers in loss

    Gurriel went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Dodgers. Gurriel snapped a 26-game homer drought with his eighth-inning blast. The outfielder has gone 11-for-45 (.244) over his last 12 contests, adding just five RBI and five runs scored in that span. He's at a .236/.284/.385 slash line with six homers, 27 RBI, 24 runs scored and two stolen bases over 44 contests this season. He's never posted a batting average lower than .261 or an OPS lower than .743 over a full season, so there's room for Gurriel to turn things around in 2024.

  • Diamondbacks' Lourdes Gurriel: Getting breather Saturday

    Gurriel isn't in the Diamondbacks' lineup for Saturday's game versus Detroit.

    Gurriel went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double and an RBI in Wednesday's 2-1 win over Cincinnati. Gurriel's two-out, bloop double in the eighth inning plated the winning run. The outfielder has been fighting it at the plate and entered the contest batting .121 (8-for-66) with two RBI over the previous 16 games. His average has dropped to .231 due to the slump, but Gurriel remains an important middle-of-the-order bat for Arizona and is second on the club with 25 RBI over 40 games.

An earlier double extended a hit streak to four games, during which he's gone 6-for-18. The modest hit streak is a welcome sign for Gurriel, who endured a 2-for-37 slump over the nine previous games.

  • Diamondbacks' Lourdes Gurriel: Taking seat Thursday

    Gurriel went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Rockies. The 30-year-old outfielder continues a strong start to the season. Gurriel has hit safely in five straight games, and through 12 contests he's slashing .308/.368/.538 with three homers, two steals, 10 runs and 14 RBI -- a mark that puts him just one back of the league leaders, as Teoscar Hernandez, Jake Burger and Spencer Steer all have 15.

  • Diamondbacks' Lourdes Gurriel: Homers again

After a production dip in 2022 while with Toronto, Gurriel has found a home in the desert. After his bounce-back season in 2023, the Diamondbacks inked him to a three-year deal. He'll toggle between left field and DH while batting mostly third in a lineup that's already scored 23 runs.

  • Diamondbacks' Lourdes Gurriel: Drives in five on Opening Day

    Gurriel went 3-for-5 with a home run, three total runs and five total RBI in Thursday's 16-1 rout of the Rockies. Gurriel put Arizona on the board with his two-run blast to left field in the first inning and contributed to a 14-run explosion in the third with a pair of run-scoring singles. The veteran outfielder belted a career-high 24 homers last season in his first campaign with the Diamondbacks following an unusual prior season during which he batted .291 but went deep just five times over 492 plate appearances. He has a pretty stable batting-average floor and is a strong defensive player, though he's not the most exciting fantasy asset given his lack of speed and non-elite power.

  • Diamondbacks' Lourdes Gurriel: Exits game after HBP on hand

    Gurriel was removed from Friday's game against the Cubs after being hit on the left hand by a pitch, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

Further testing will likely be necessary before the severity of the issue, and a timeline for his return, is determined.

    Gurriel went 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's spring game against Milwaukee. Gurriel delivered a run-scoring double in the fourth inning, giving him extra-base hits in consecutive games. He's 5-for-14 with a home run and three RBI over five Cactus League appearances. He experienced a bounce-back season in his first year with the Diamondbacks in 2023, and the club re-signed him for another three seasons.

Gurriel split his playing time between left field and designated hitter last season, and he's likely to do so again in 2024.
