Top Jonathan Aranda News

  • Rays' Jonathan Aranda: Could DH versus righties

    Aranda could be in line to serve in a strong-side platoon at designated hitter for the Rays, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

    It sounds as if Aranda is the top candidate to step into the role vacated by Luke Raley as the DH versus righties and occasional first baseman. A trade of Harold Ramirez, which seems likely, could further clarify Aranda's role. Aranda has posted just a .656 OPS over 190 plate appearances during his limited chances at the major-league level, but the 25-year-old sports a .328/.421/.565 batting line with 43 home runs over the last two seasons at Triple-A Durham. Even if the left-handed batter sits regularly against southpaws, he boasts big fantasy potential.

  • Rays' Jonathan Aranda: Smashes grand slam in win

    Aranda went 2-for-6 with a grand slam, a double and six RBI in Sunday's 12-8 win over the Blue Jays.

    Aranda kicked things off with an RBI-single in the first and followed up with a grand slam off Wes Parsons in the second. He added an RBI-double later on for his sixth run driven in. Aranda only had seven RBI and one home run through 33 games coming into Sunday and finishes the year slashing .230/.340/.368. Overall, the 25-year-old struggled at the plate in limited action, but it was certainly encouraging to see him end the regular season on a high note as he looks to help the Rays make a postseason run.

  • Rays' Jonathan Aranda: Three hits in win

    Aranda went 3-for-4 with a double, one RBI and one run scored in Tuesday's victory over the Red Sox.

    It was an encouraging performance from Aranda, who began the day in a 2-for-28 (.071) slump with no extra-base hits in that span. The 25-year-old infielder is now slashing .211/.330/.316 with just one homer, 12 runs scored and seven RBI through 91 plate appearances on the campaign. While he won't offer much offensively, Aranda should see fairly regular at-bats against right-handed pitching with Brandon Lowe (knee) out.

  • Rays' Jonathan Aranda: Triples in win

    Aranda went 1-for-2 with a triple, three walks, an RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 8-6 win over the Red Sox.

    Aranda got the scoring started in the second inning after Wilyer Abreu lost a flyball in the Tropicana Field catwalks, resulting in an RBI triple. The 25-year-old Aranda, who got the start at DH, would reach base three more times via walks in the contest, scoring a pair of runs. Aranda's playing time's been sparse since he was called up Aug. 15. He's gone 5-for-22 (.227) with one home run in that span. He did post eye-popping numbers in the minors, however, batting .339 with 25 homers and a 1.063 OPS across 95 Triple-A games.

  • Rays' Jonathan Aranda: Belts first homer

    Aranda went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks Saturday across both games of a doubleheader against the Angels.

    Aranda started at first base in the matinee and slugged a 430-foot solo shot in the sixth inning for his first major-league long ball of the campaign. He came off the bench in the nightcap and added a walk over two plate appearances. Aranda has gotten into just six big-league games this season, going 4-for-18 with three RBI. He's pounded minor-league pitching, though, slashing .339/.449/.613 with 25 homers and 81 RBI over 434 plate appearances at Triple-A Durham.

  • Rays' Jonathan Aranda: Rejoins big club

    Aranda was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, Tricia Whitaker of Bally Sports Sun reports.

    Aranda has played in just four games across his two stints in the majors this season, going 3-for-15 with a double, two RBI and two runs. Manuel Margot (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
