Diamondbacks purchased the contract of OF Reymond Fuentes from Triple-A Reno.
Fuentes, 26, was hitting .376/.403/.481 with nine steals at Reno. He's starting in center field and hitting leadoff for the D'Backs Monday and could offer some deep league speed if he plays regularly with A.J. Pollock (groin) out. However, Gregor Blanco also figures to see starts in center field. May 15 - 6:07 PM

Reymond Fuentes went 3-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in Friday’s loss to the Dodgers.

Fuentes, a non-roster invitee, got the Diamondbacks on the board with an RBI single in the second inning before adding a solo shot off Trevor Oaks in the fourth. The 26-year-old had a couple of stints with the Royals last season, but spent the majority of the year in Triple-A while batting .254/.325/.317 with zero homers and 17 steals over 65 games. Even if he finds himself on Arizona’s bench at some point, there’s not much fantasy appeal here.

Reymond Fuentes hit a three-run bomb against the Reds on Monday.

The 26-year-old is trying to earn a roster spot as a backup outfielder. He had a .317 batting average in 13 games with the Royals last year. It was his first taste of the majors since a 23-game stint with the Padres in 2013. The home run is a rarity for Fuentes, who didn't hit a single longball in the majors or minors last year.
Feb 27 - 8:24 PM

Diamondbacks signed OF Reymond Fuentes to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The 25-year-old was a first round selection of the Red Sox in the 2009 draft. He appeared in 13 games for the Royals in 2016, slashing .317/.364/.341 with five RBI in 44 plate appearances. He'll likely be given an opportunity to compete for a reserve outfield spot on the club's Opening Day roster.

Royals released OF Reymond Fuentes.

Fuentes was designated for assignment by Kansas City on September 6 to clear a 40-man roster spot for Daniel Nava. The 25-year-old outfielder will enter the offseason as a free agent.

Royals designated OF Reymond Fuentes for assignment.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for Daniel Nava. Fuentes, 25, has batted .243/.300/.257 over 80 career plate appearances at the major league level.
Tue, Sep 6, 2016 03:58:00 PM

Royals optioned OF Reymond Fuentes to Triple-A Omaha.

Brett Eibner was activated in a corresponding 25-man roster move. Fuentes has batted .317/.364/.341 in 44 plate appearances this season at the major league level. He will likely be back up later this summer.

Royals recalled OF Reymond Fuentes from Triple-A Omaha.

Fuentes earns the call-up with Brett Eibner (ankle) landing on the disabled list. He secured himself a spot on the Opening Day roster after some nice work in spring training, but managed just five singles in 21 at-bats before being optioned back to Omaha midway through April. There is no fantasy allure here.
Wed, Jun 1, 2016 05:48:00 PM

Royals optioned OF Reymond Fuentes to Triple-A Omaha.

The move clears the way for Jarrod Dyson's return from the disabled list. Fuentes earned a spot on the Opening Day roster with a strong spring, but he was batting just .238/.273/.238 over six games. The Royals ultimately elected to keep speedster Terrance Gore over him.

Reymond Fuentes is starting in right field and batting ninth for the Royals in Friday's game against the Twins.

He's starting each of the Royals' three games so far with the opposition throwing three righties. It appears manager Ned Yost will be going with a strict platoon with Fuentes and Paulo Orlando until Jarrod Dyson (oblique) is ready.

Reymond Fuentes will start in right field and bat ninth against the Mets on Tuesday.

It's the same lineup that Ned Yost used on Sunday night. Fuentes earned a spot on the Opening Day roster with a strong spring and appears in line to start in right field against right-handed starters until Jarrod Dyson (oblique) is ready to come off the disabled list. He's worth a short-term look in AL-only formats. The full lineup for KC: Alcides Escobar SS, Mike Moustakas 3B, Lorenzo Cain CF, Eric Hosmer 1B, Kendrys Morales DH, Alex Gordon LF, Salvador Perez C, Omar Infante 2B, Fuentes RF. Chris Young will make the start for the Royals while Noah Syndergaard gets the ball for the Mets.

Reymond Fuentes will start in right field and bat ninth against the Mets on Sunday.

Fuentes not only cracked the Opening Day roster, but he's getting the start over Paulo Orlando. It appears he could play against most right-handers until Jarrod Dyson (oblique) returns.
Sun, Apr 3, 2016 02:44:00 PM

Reymond Fuentes is expected to make the Royals' Opening Day roster.

It's not a surprise, as manager Ned Yost even indicated a week ago that Fuentes could see ample time in right field while Jarrod Dyson (oblique) is sidelined. Fuentes might only stick around for a few weeks until Dyson returns but is worth owning in AL-only leagues until then.
Fri, Apr 1, 2016 01:05:00 PM

Royals manager Ned Yost said Friday that he'll "go with the hot hand" in right field" until Jarrod Dyson (oblique) returns.

The assumption had been that Paulo Orlando would be the club's regular right fielder while Dyson was out, but it sounds like Reymond Fuentes will also be in the mix. Fuentes hasn't played in the majors since 2013, but he hit .308/.360/.422 at Triple-A last season and has crushed the ball this spring with a .444/.524/.778 line, three homers and 10 RBI. Both players are worth considering in deeper AL-only formats.

Reymond Fuentes connected for a solo homer Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Fuentes, the cousin of former Royal Carlos Beltran, is now 5-for-11 (.462) with a homer, a double, two walks, and a stolen base this spring. The 25-year-old is starting to make a real case for a reserve outfielder job.
