Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Not starting Friday

Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Remains on bench

Leyba will sit Tuesday against the Rays, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports. Leyba was in the starting lineup for nine straight games from June 27 through July 7, appearing against both righties and lefties, but it looks as though he's since slipped into a platoon role. Since that run ended, he's started against all four righties the Orioles have faced while sitting against all three lefties, including Tuesday's starter Shane McClanahan. Pat Valaika starts at second base in his absence.

Orioles' Domingo Leyba: Knocks solo home run

Leyba went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in Friday's 8-7 loss to the Angels. Leyba took Angels starter Griffin Canning deep in the second inning for the former's first major-league home run. The 25-year-old infielder has hit safely in four of his five games with Baltimore. While he started Friday at third base to cover for Maikel Franco (ankle), Leyba's best path to playing time remains as part of a timeshare with Pat Valaika at the keystone.

Diamondbacks' Domingo Leyba: Designated for assignment

Leyba was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. Leyba appeared in 13 games during his stint on the major-league roster, but he failed to record a hit and struck out seven times in 22 at-bats. His removal from the 40-man roster will clear space for Ildemaro Vargas, who was acquired by Arizona in a corresponding move.

Diamondbacks' Domingo Leyba: Looking for first hit

Leyba started at second base and went 0-for-3 in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers. Leyba recently had his contract selected from Triple-A Reno after the Diamondbacks placed Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) on the injured list. Leyba mashed for the Aces in the Pacific Coast League, hitting four home runs while positing a 1.400 OPS in 37 plate appearances, but he's still looking for his first hit since joining Arizona. He'll primarily back up at second base, third base and shortstop, behind Josh Rojas, Eduardo Escobar and Nick Ahmed.

Diamondbacks' Domingo Leyba: Denied Opening Day roster spot

The Diamondbacks reassigned Leyba on Wednesday. Leyba's chances of securing an Opening Day role with the Diamondbacks were effectively dashed after he was outrighted off the 40-man roster in November, but he still got the opportunity to compete for a job this spring. The 25-year-old wasn't able to capitalize on his opportunities, however, going 5-for-34 in Cactus League play before being reassigned. Expect him to report to Triple-A Reno when its season begins in May.
