Alejandro De Aza went 1-for-4 with a bases-clearing triple as the Orioles topped the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

If there was any doubt the Orioles would clinch on Tuesday, De Aza erased it by clearing the bases with his seventh-inning triple -- his third in 12 games since joining the Orioles. De Aza has hit well for the Orioles since joining them on August 30, slashing .327/.377/.612 with a pair of homers and stolen bases and nine RBI.
Sep 16 - 10:27 PM

Alejandro De Aza went 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI triples as the Orioles swept Friday's doubleheader from the Yankees.

This after having two hits and a walk in the first game. De Aza is now batting .394 (13-for-33) with five extra-base hits, six RBI, two stolen bases, and five runs scored since coming over from the White Sox. Orioles manager Buck Showalter has used him exclusively near the top of the order, so he's well worth a try in deeper mixed leagues right now.
Sep 12 - 10:50 PM

Alejandro De Aza hit two home runs and drove in three runs in the Orioles' 4-1 defeat of the Red Sox on Tuesday.

De Aza finished 3-for-4 with 10 total bases, as he also doubled in the victory. The home runs both came off Red Sox starter Anthony Ranaudo, swatting a two-run blast in the first inning before knocking a solo shot in the third. The move to the Orioles has revived De Aza, as he's gone 8-for-20 in five games since the trade from the White Sox.
Sep 9 - 11:28 PM

Orioles acquired OF Alejandro De Aza from the White Sox for RHPs Miguel Chalas and Mark Blackmar.

De Aza has good speed and can play all three outfield positions, making him a nice addition to the Baltimore bench for the stretch run. The 30-year-old was batting .243/.309/.354 with 15 stolen bases in 122 games this season for the White Sox. He'll be arbitration-eligible for the third and final time this winter. Chalas and Blackmar are non-prospects.
Aug 30 - 9:16 PM

Alejandro De Aza is back in the White Sox' lineup Wednesday.

De Aza sat out Tuesday after fouling a ball off his left knee Monday. The outfielder is sporting a .240/.308/.354 batting line with five homers, 30 RBI and 14 stolen bases for the White Sox this season.

Aug 6 - 9:20 AM

Aug 5 - 5:32 PM

Alejandro De Aza left Monday's game versus the Rangers with a bruised left knee.

It's not clear how he was injured or how long he might be out. The White Sox should provide an update on De Aza's status later Monday or Tuesday.
Aug 4 - 11:04 PM

Alejandro De Aza went 0-for-3 on Wednesday and is in a 2-for-28 slump.

De Aza homered twice on Opening Day and three times in opening series against the Twins, but he has just one homer since, that coming back on April 28. He's struggled to hit for average all along, and he's currently at .179 for the season. The White Sox don't have much in the way of outfield alternatives, so they'll keep running him out there against righties for now. He should snap out of it at some point.
May 21 - 10:59 PM

Alejandro De Aza hit his fourth homer of the year Monday in the win over the Rays.

It was his fourth homer of the year, but his first in 25 days; the previous three all came in the season-opening series against the Twins. De Aza has struggled mightily since those first few days, and if not for Avisail Garcia's injury, he'd probably find himself on the bench most of the time right now. As is, he'll continue to start in left field against most righties.

Alejandro De Aza went hitless again in Friday's loss to the Rangers.

He finished the night 0-for-3 with a strikeout and is now hitting a paltry .167/.196/.352 on the season. If he continues to struggle, Jordan Danks could start stealing playing time away from him in the White Sox outfield.
Apr 18 - 11:10 PM

Alejandro De Aza went 0-for-3 with a walk as the White Sox defeated the Red Sox on Tuesday.

De Aza walked and was caught stealing leading off the bottom of the ninth inning, but the White Sox walked off winners anyway. After a white-hot spring, De Aza has been cold to start the season, hitting just .167 with the conclusion of Tuesday's action. The caught stealing was only his first attempted steal of the season, after swiping 20 bags last year.
Apr 15 - 11:53 PM

Alejandro De Aza delivered an RBI single in Friday's win over the Indians.

It was his first hit since April 3. Now that Avisail Garcia is done for the season with a torn labrum, both De Aza and Dayan Viciedo will start regularly in Chicago's outfield. Jordan Danks is expected to function as a fourth outfielder.
