The Diamondbacks recalled Kyle Lewis from Triple-A Reno Monday.
Lewis will take the roster spot of Jake McCarthy, who was optioned to Triple-A Monday. The 28-year-old outfielder has seen limited action with Arizona this season, batting .182 with one home run and two RBI in 33 at-bats.
Kyle Lewis is likely to need a rehab assignment.
Lewis was placed on the 10-day injured list on Saturday with an undisclosed illness. “He's probably gonna need to be built back up,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said. “He's gonna be on the injured list and then get into a rehab and try to get back onto his feet as soon as possible.” It sounds like Lewis could return soon barring any setbacks. He was off to a slow start hitting just .167 at the plate with one home run.
Kyle Lewis went 1-for-1 at the plate for the Diamondbacks Friday night, blasting a pinch-hit two-run home run in the Diamondbacks' 2-1 win over the Dodgers.
Lewis was able to take an Alex Vesia pitch deep to give the Diamondbacks the lead in the top of the eighth inning Friday night. The once highly-touted prospect struggled with injuries from 2021-2022, playing in just 54 games in that span. The outfielder had a sizzling spring for the Diamondbacks and will be worth monitoring early in the season for fantasy managers to see what type of role the 27-year-old can carve out.
Kyle Lewis has been traded from Seattle to Arizona.
Lewis missed much of 2022 with injuries. In 62 plate appearances he hit three home runs with a .143 batting average. Lewis will get a chance to redeem himself as he hopes to get back to his 2020 rookie of the year ways.
Kyle Lewis was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday.
Lewis has struggled in a major way since being called back up to the big league club on July 22nd, collecting just four hits in 14 games played. On the season, the 27-year-old is hitting .143 on the big league level with three homers and five RBIs. He simply cannot be trusted anymore in fantasy.
