LF,DH - ARI - DFA
The Diamondbacks recalled Yasmany Tomas from Triple-A Reno.
Tomas hasn't played in the majors since 2017 but has been on a tear in Triple-A this season. Through 98 games he is batting .305 with a .944 OPS and 29 homers. He likely won't play enough right away to matter in most fantasy leagues, but he's a name to monitor for deeper formats.
Yasmany Tomas was put on waivers over the weekend and went unclaimed. He will remain with the Reno Aces for now.
Since going unclaimed through the waiver period, the Diamondbacks were able to outright him to Triple-A, clearing up a 40-man roster spot. It was always going to be hard to move Tomas because of the money owed to him. It might be awhile before he gets another shot at the major league level.
Yasmany Tomas was sent to Triple-A Reno on Sunday as the club makes their final cuts. Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said the reason they sent him down was to work on his defense, hoping he can become "an above average defender."
Yasmany Tomas was having a pretty good spring training showing with a .370 OBP, but the Diamondbacks have lost faith in him to be a major league player. It's going to take an injury for Tomas to even be considered for part time at-bats.
Yasmany Tomas continued his nice camp this spring with a 2-for-3 showing on Thursday against the Chicago Cubs.
Tomas entered spring training as a likely candidate to start the season at Triple-A Reno, given he still has options left and the Diamondbacks decisions to add Jarrod Dyson and Steven Souza. Instead, Tomas has given the D-backs something to think about in his 11 games. He currently holds a .423/.500/.615 line and has walked (4) more times than he has struck out (3). This is a situation to monitor as rosters are trimmed down.
Yasmany Tomas had a procedure to clean up scar tissue in the same area where he had core surgery in August.
Tomas played only 47 games in 2017, as he was hindered by multiple injuries. He finished the season batting .241 with eight home runs. He is owed $10 million next year, so he will likely be expected to start again in the outfield for the D-backs.
