Fantasy Impact: Giants Manager Bruce Bochy plans on using De Aza as a left-handed hitting OF from the bench. Unless the Giants suffer another injury to their outfield you won't see him make too much of an impact. De Aza is batting .261 on the year with seven home runs and 32 RBIs.

Fantasy Impact: Since being picked up from Baltimore earlier in the season, Alejandro De Aza has hit well for Boston hitting .313 in 58 games with the Red Sox. But he is currently losing playing time and fantasy value as the Sox are going with younger players as they play out the season. A trade to the Dodgers may not help his value as the team is deep in outfielders and he would split time there also.

On the one hand, the primary mission for the Red Sox over the final two months is to see as much as they can from players in the mix for significant roles in 2015 about whom they might still have questions. "We've got to gather information on players that are going to be here beyond 2015," Boston manager John Farrell said. On the other hand, for the second day in a row, free agent-to-be Alejandro De Aza was in the Red Sox lineup ahead of Rusney Castillo. Mike Napoli likewise was playing first base, with young corner infielder Travis Shaw watching from the bench. "It's a balance," Farrell acknowledged. (Source: Providence Journal)

Fantasy Impact: While it sounds like the Red Sox want to balance their roster, they may also be trying to showcase Alejandro De Aza for a waiver deal. While De Aza is playing, he is not playing enough to be fantasy relevant. If he was to end up in a starting job on a contending team, he would be someone to think about picking up.


Alejandro De Aza went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI singles and a run scored Friday against the Rays.

Fantasy Impact: Alejandro De Aza has been a great pickup for the Red Sox who got him off of waivers earlier in the season. With Boston, De Aza is hitting .304 with three home runs, 21 runs batted in and three steals in 43 games.

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.

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.

Fantasy Impact: De Aza has a batting average of .219/.265/.375. His strike out rate went up while his walk rate went down this season. His future with the Orioles seems bleak.

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.
