  • Rays' Jonathan Aranda: Taking next steps in recovery

    Aranda will have the pins removed from his surgically repaired right ring finger Monday, MLB.com reports.

    Aranda has continued to engage in all baseball activities besides swinging, but with the pins getting removed, he should be able to start taking some hacks in the batter's box. The Rays haven't provided an exact timeline for Aranda to return from the 10-day injured list, though early or mid-May could be a realistic target.

  • Rays' Jonathan Aranda: Officially placed on injured list

    The Rays placed Aranda (finger) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

    Aranda is expected to be out until at least early May after having surgery March 21 to insert a pin in his fractured right ring finger. The 25-year-old had been slated to open the season as Tampa Bay's primary designated hitter against right-handed pitching, and he should eventually reclaim that role once healthy.

  • Rays' Jonathan Aranda: IL-bound with fractured finger

    Aranda will begin the season on the injured list after being diagnosed Thursday with a fractured right ring finger, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. He's scheduled to have surgery to insert a pin into his finger and will likely miss 4-to-6 weeks, per Topkin.

    Aranda suffered the injury while fielding a grounder Tuesday. The 25-year-old had been slated to open the season as Tampa Bay's primary designated hitter against right-handed pitching, but the injury will likely keep him out for at least all of April. In Aranda's stead, Curtis Mead, Harold Ramirez and Amed Rosario could benefit from some added opportunities against right-handed pitching early on in the season.

  • Rays' Jonathan Aranda: Locking up roster spot

    Aranda has maintained a 1.124 OPS across 29 plate appearances in the Grapefruit League.

    Aranda entered spring as a strong candidate to earn a large-side platoon role at DH. He's done everything in his power to lock up those plate appearances, as he's struck out just 6.9 percent of the time while clubbing five extra-base hits. While it's not yet clear if Aranda will be a regular part of the Rays' lineup, he appears to be a safe bet to crack the Opening Day roster.
