Alejandro De Aza hit a solo home run which was the Red Sox only run in Saturday's loss to the Rays. He finished 1-for-3.
Fantasy Impact: Alejandro De Aza is getting full playing time in the Red Sox outfield as the team deals with injuries and slumps. De Aza is a streaky hitter and could be heating up with a couple home runs the last few days. If this hot streak continues he could be a short term add in fantasy leagues.

Alejandro De Aza lifted a three-run home run in a 2-for-4 effort Thursday afternoon as the Red Sox lost to the Orioles.
Fantasy Impact: Alejandro De Aza has been heating up and taking advantage of some playing time with the Red Sox outfield struggling. In the last week he is hitting close to .300 with four RBI and a steal and home run. He is not ownable in fantasy leagues but someone to keep an eye on.

Fantasy Impact: There is no word on who was acquired by the Orioles from the Red Sox. De Aza was designated for assignment by Baltimore last Friday after batting just .214/.277/.359 over 30 games. It will be tough for De Aza to see consistent playing time in Boston with the team's outfield depth. De Aza has no fantasy value at this time.

The Baltimore Orioles have decided to part ways with outfielder Alejandro De Aza. He was designated for assignment on Wednesday to make room on the roster for infielder Ryan Flaherty, who has been activated from the 15-day disabled list after recovering from a right groin strain.

Fantasy Impact: Last season Alejandro De Aza had a batting average of .293 in 20 games with the Orioles. He went into a slump this year with .214 in 30 games. The Orioles should consider a trade since De Aza is still owed $3.55 million for the season.

De Aza is not in the starting lineup Thursday against the Blue Jays. He is replaced in the lineup by David Lough. De Aza currently has 1 hit in his last 15 plate appearances. He is hitting .240 on the year with 2 home runs and 4 RBIs.
Fantasy Impact: This looks like a much needed night off for De Aza as he is in a brutal slump the last few days. He has seen his average drop from .333 on April 13 to .240 in a matter of 10 days. Take this as a night off and monitor his playing status going into the weekend series to see if he breaks out of his slump before thinking of inserting him into a lineup.
