1B - MIA
Jesus Aguilar has been claimed by the Miami Marlins.
Aguilar was recently designated for assignment by the Tampa Bay Rays. Passan notes that there is a clear path to playing time at first base on the Marlins, who return Garrett Cooper as the only real competition to Aguilar. Aguilar has more of a track record, though that's not saying much given Aguilar's inconsistency. For the Marlins, it seems worth the flyer in hopes Aguilar can return to 2018 form and become at least a trade chip for the rebuilding team. Aguilar's value would increase if given a regular role in 2020, but the situation couldn't be much worse playing in Miami with a weak offense surrounding him.
The Rays designated Jesus Aguilar for assignment Wednesday.
After a breakout campaign in 2018, Aguilar slashed just .236/.325/.389 with 12 home runs, 50 RBI and 30 runs scored across 366 plate appearances between TB/MIL in 2019. He will make room for Brian O'Grady, who the Rays acquired via trade by the Reds. Aguilar will look to latch onto another team during the off-season.
Jesus Aguilar hit a two-run homer in his only at-bat in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.
Aguilar came on as a pinch hitter in the eighth inning and hit the two-run shot for the Rays. The veteran slugger has had a disappointing season and has been in a platoon and fantasy owners should be leaving him on the waiver wire.
Jesus Aguilar went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and another RBI in Friday's victory over the Angels.
Aguilar is now hitting .240 with 11 home runs, 45 RBI and 38 runs scored over 121 games between the Brewers and the Rays. The veteran slugger is in a platoon and is not worth owning in fantasy.
Jesus Aguilar went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run Friday against the Indians.
Aguilar has the biggest hit of the night on Friday and is now hitting .238 with 10 homers and 43 RBI over 117 games this year. The 29-year-old first baseman is in a platoon situation with the Rays and can be left on the waiver wire.
