Rays' Jonny DeLuca: Added to mix in Tampa outfield
DeLuca was traded from the Dodgers to the Rays along with Ryan Pepiot in exchange for Tyler Glasnow and Manuel Margot on Thursday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
DeLuca reached the majors for the first time in 2023, though that amounted to only 45 plate appearances. He's strong defensively, which should help him find more consistent playing time with the Rays, even if it doesn't translate to a full-time job in the outfield.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Jonny DeLuca: Back healthy, optioned
DeLuca (hamstring) was activated from the injured list and optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, Matthew Moreno of DodgerBlue.com reports.
DeLuca has been sidelined for slightly over a month with a right hamstring strain. He tallied two homers and one stolen base across 45 big-league plate appearances prior to going down, though his primary contribution to the Dodgers was his excellent defense. DeLuca could be called up again prior to the close of the regular season, though his playing time would likely be sporadic.... See More ... See Less

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after Tuesday's 8-7 win over the Blue Jays that DeLuca (hamstring) will likely be placed on the 10-day injured list, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
DeLuca came off the bench in the sixth inning to replace Jason Heyward and went 0-for-2 while playing two innings in the field. In his final at-bat in the eighth inning, DeLuca hit a grounder to shortstop and suffered a hamstring strain while attempting to beat the throw. He was lifted from the game in the top of the ninth and now looks like he'll be sidelined for at least the next week and a half. The Dodgers acquired Enrique Hernandez in a trade with the Red Sox on Tuesday, and he'll likely assume DeLuca's spot on the 26-man active roster.... See More ... See Less

DeLuca was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Dodgers' Jonny DeLuca: Optioned to Triple-A
DeLuca was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday.
The Dodgers brought in Jake Marisnick to occupy a short-side platoon role, allowing DeLuca to head back to Triple-A and get regular at-bats once more. Even though the 25-year-old has only been used in a limited capacity this season, he is still viewed as one of the Dodgers' top prospects and could play a larger role in the coming years. He hit .212 with one home run and one steal in 36 big-league plate appearances.... See More ... See Less

Dodgers' Jonny DeLuca: Draws walk in debut
DeLuca went 0-for-2 with a walk in a loss to Cincinnati on Wednesday.
DeLuca started in center field in his first big-league game after getting called up Sunday. He lined out in each of his first two plate appearances and drew a walk in his third before David Peralta pinch hit for him in the ninth. DeLuca will likely fill the reserve outfielder role previously handled by Trayce Thompson (oblique) before the latter went on the IL. That likely means DeLuca will see only occasional starts, and he is in fact out of the lineup for Thursday's early contest against the Reds.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Jonny DeLuca: Starting in CF in debut

Dodgers' Jonny DeLuca: Joining MLB club Sunday
The Dodgers will promote DeLuca from Triple-A Oklahoma City ahead of Sunday's game against the Yankees , Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
With Trayce Thompson (oblique) heading to the 10-day injured list, the Dodgers will bring up one of their top outfield prospects to take his place on the 26-man active roster. The 24-year-old has hit .292 with 14 home runs and 12 stolen bases in 222 plate appearances between Double-A Tulsa and Oklahoma City. DeLuca could see playing time against left-handed pitching with Thompson on the shelf, but he's more of a long-term play than one who is likely to provide fantasy fireworks in his first taste of MLB action....
