  • Blaze Alexander Still Out On Tuesday

    Headshot for Blaze Alexander

    Arizona Diamondbacks rookie infielder Blaze Alexander (hamstring) remains out of the team's starting lineup on Tuesday as they get set to face the St. Louis Cardinals. Alexander injured his right hamstring on Sunday and will miss his second straight game as a result. The 24-year-old was reportedly available off the bench in Monday's game, though, so it doesn't appear to be a serious injury and he should be considered day-to-day. Kevin Newman is starting at the 6 on Tuesday and will hit eighth against Cardinals left-hander Steven Matz. Although Newman has hit .583 with a 1.416 OPS and five RBI in 12 career at-bats against Matz, he'll still be a low-upside DFS sleeper on Tuesday. Alexander has looked great in his first 18 major-league games in 2024, going 17-for-53 (.321) with three home runs, 13 RBI and a steal in his first 58 plate appearances.

  • Blaze Alexander Exits Early On Sunday

    Headshot for Blaze Alexander

    Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Blaze Alexander (hamstring) was forced to exit early during Sunday's game against the San Francisco Giants. The young shortstop was pulled out of the game due to cramping in his right hamstring. This sounds like a minor issue that shouldn't force Alexander to the injured list. For the moment, fantasy managers should consider Alexander as day-to-day. Kevin Newman figures to see more playing time until Alexander is ready again.

  • Blaze Alexander Homers, Reaches Base Three Times

    Headshot for Blaze Alexander

    Arizona Diamondbacks shortstop Blaze Alexander went 2-for-2 with his second home run of the season in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Rockies and also drew a walk. The 24-year-old has hit safely in four straight games now and is showing well at the plate in his debut, going 10-for-29 (.345) with two home runs, four RBI, five runs scored, one stolen base, and a 4:9 BB:K in 33 plate appearances. The youngster is filling in for injured Geraldo Perdomo, who is expected back in about a month, but Alexander provides a little more pop than Perdomo. If he continues to hit well it might be hard to get him out of the lineup when Perdomo returns, but he could potentially DH as well. Alexander is also eligible at second base in Yahoo leagues which gives managers additional flexibility.

  • Geraldo Perdomo Injured On Wednesday

    Headshot for Blaze Alexander

    Arizona Diamondbacks shortstop Geraldo Perdomo (knee) left Wednesday's extra-inning loss to the New York Yankees in the 10th inning and was walking with a slight limp. He started hobbling halfway to second base and stood on the bag hunched over for a while before leaving the game. The Arizona Republic's Theo Mackie suggests it could have been Perdomo's knee, which he had a minor issue with during spring training. Before leaving, Perdomo went 0-for-4 with an RBI and two strikeouts in the 6-5 loss. If the 24-year-old is forced to miss any time because of the injury, expect Blaze Alexander to see most of the playing time at shortstop for Arizona. Until we know more on Perdomo's injury, fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day. The D-backs are off on Thursday before heading to Atlanta to face the Braves on Friday.UPDATE: Perdomo is officially listed as day-to-day with right-knee discomfort.

  • Blaze Alexander Finishes Impressive Spring With Homer

    Headshot for Blaze Alexander

    Arizona Diamondbacks shortstop prospect Blaze Alexander finished his impressive Cactus League by going 1-for-2 with a walk and two-run homer versus the Cleveland Guardians. Alexander, 24, made waves this spring by hitting .400 (22-for-55) with two homers, eight RBI and five stolen bases. Alexander has put the pressure on the Diamondbacks to let him break camp as a bench option. Despite shortstop Jordan Lawlar having the better long-term future, it will be hard for the Diamondbacks to send Alexander packing after putting up some of the best spring numbers in all of baseball. If he does break camp, Alexander would operate in a utility role to start the season and could be avoided to minimal opportunity.
