Rays' Randy Arozarena: Four hits in win

Arozarena went 4-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Pirates. Arozarena singled and scored in the first inning and doubled in the third frame before later adding an RBI double in the bottom of the fifth. His fourth and final hit came in the seventh inning when he added another single. The doubles were his first extra-base hits since June 12 and he also avoided striking out for the first time in nine games.

Rays' Randy Arozarena: Pair of steals in win

Arozarena went 1-for-3 with an RBI double, two stolen bases and two runs scored in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Twins. He was also hit by a pitch twice. Arozarena got on base three times the hard way, though it's encouraging he didn't have to leave the game after either of the errant pitches. He's notched five of his 12 steals this season in the last 10 games, showing a little more willingness to run after a quiet start to the year in that regard. The outfielder is slashing .268/.318/.442 with seven home runs, 31 RBI, 29 runs scored, 14 doubles and two triples through 242 plate appearances.

Can Randy Arozarena Keep The Rays Afloat?

Coming into 2022, the Rays lost some crucial pieces to their lineup. With all of Nelson Cruz, Joey Wendle, and Austin Meadows now elsewhere, the offense was going to rely on the bats of Wander Franco and Brandon Lowe. This was a solid plan in theory. After all, the two make up one of the MLB's best middle-infield duos.

Rays' Randy Arozarena: Getting breather Sunday

Arozarena is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Having started in every game for the Rays since April 28, Arozarena was well overdue for a day off. Manuel Margot will slide over to cover left field in place of Arozarena, who has been one of the Rays' hottest hitters of late with a 1.113 OPS over his last eight starts.
