  • Yandy Diaz, Jose Caballero Out On Tuesday

    Headshot for Jose Caballero

    Tampa Bay Rays infielders Yandy Diaz and Jose Caballero are out of the starting lineup ahead of Tuesday's game against the Boston Red Sox. Fantasy managers shouldn't be worried as this appears to be routine rest day for both players. Jonathan Aranda will cover first base with Brandon Lowe playing second and Amed Rosario is at shortstop for Tuesday's game. Fantasy managers should adjust their lineups accordingly.

  • Rays Reinstate Jonathan Aranda From Injured List

    Headshot for Jonathan Aranda

    The Tampa Bay Rays reinstated infielder Jonathan Aranda (finger) from the 10-day injured list on Tuesday and optioned infielder Austin Shenton to Triple-A Durham in a corresponding move. Aranda isn't in the team's starting lineup on Tuesday against Boston Red Sox, but he's now back with the team and could be an option as the designated hitter after he fractured his finger just days before Opening Day at the end of March. The 25-year-old needed surgery on his finger and will be making his 2024 debut when he gets into a game. In 55 plate appearances at Durham, Aranda hit just .196/.327/.283 with one home run and 20 strikeouts in 12 games played. If he can hit better at the big-league level, he could eventually work into the strong side of a platoon at DH in Tampa.

  • Rays Not Rushing Jonathan Aranda Back

    Headshot for Jonathan Aranda

    Tampa Bay Rays infielder Jonathan Aranda (finger) is has not hit well during his minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham, and manager Kevin Cash said on Friday that the team wants to make sure Aranda is "timed up at the plate as much as possible" before ending his rehab assignment. Aranda fractured his right ring finger during a workout on March 19, which led to surgery to insert a pin into his finger on March 21. He had the pins removed from his finger on April 15. The 25-year-old looked great in spring training before his injury and should have a significant role for the Rays when he returns, at least as the designated hitter against right-handed pitching. Aranda is at least worth a pickup in deep-mixed leagues when he makes his 2024 debut.

  • Jonathan Aranda Begins Rehab Assignment On Friday

    Headshot for Jonathan Aranda

    Tampa Bay Rays infielder Jonathan Aranda (finger) joined Triple-A Durham on Friday to begin a rehab assignment. The 25-year-old sustained a fracture in his right finger during spring training, which has kept him out of the 2024 season so far. He underwent surgery on March 21 and has not faced any setbacks. Aranda posted a .230/.340/.368 stat line last season with two home runs and 13 RBI in 34 games. When he returns to Tampa Bay, he should slot in as a utility infielder and is worth looking into in deeper formats.

  • Jonathan Aranda Should Begin Rehab Assignment Soon

    Headshot for Jonathan Aranda

    Tampa Bay Rays infielder Jonathan Aranda (finger) could be making his way back to the field soon. Recent reports are that Aranda is nearing a rehab assignment, which is positive news in his recovery process. Aranda was placed on the injured list in late March due to a broken right ring finger. The 25-year-old should be able to back get on the field and be ready around early or mid-May. Aranda figures to play a significant role on the Rays once he's healthy.

  • Jonathan Aranda To Be Placed On Injured List

    Headshot for Jonathan Aranda

    Tampa Bay Rays infielder Jonathan Aranda (finger) has been placed on the 10-day injured list. As expected, Aranda is going to miss some time after suffering a broken finger last week. The expectation is that Aranda should return around late April or early May. As a result, infielder Austin Shenton has been recalled from the minors. He'll likely be in the mix with Curtis Mead, and Harold Ramirez for more playing time with Aranda sidelined.

  • Jonathan Aranda Has Broken Finger

    Headshot for Jonathan Aranda

    Tampa Bay Rays designated hitter Jonathan Aranda (finger) has a broken right ring finger and will open the season on the injured list. Aranda injured his finger on Tuesday in camp while fielding a ground ball. The 25-year-old will have surgery to have a pin placed in his broken right ring finger and will likely miss four to six weeks. Aranda was projected to open the 2024 campaign as the team's regular designated hitter again right-handed pitching, but the Rays will now have to pivot. With Aranda injured, Curtis Mead, Harold Ramirez and Amed Rosario should all see more chances for DH at-bats with the Rays early in the year. Aranda did nothing but hit in the minor leagues, but he's so far struggled in the big leagues in parts of the last two seasons, as he's slashed only .212/.311/.345 with four home runs and 19 RBI in 66 games.
