Diamondbacks designated OF Rey Fuentes for assignment.

Fuentes was removed from the 40-man roster to clear a spot for the recently-signed Alex Avila. The 26-year-old outfielder played in 64 games for Arizona in 2017, posting a .616 OPS with three homers and four stolen bases in 145 plate appearances. Some team looking for a fourth outfielder that could play against left-handed pitching might be interested in picking him up on waivers.

Reymond Fuentes (back) is on the roster for Wednesday's Wild Card Game against the Rockies.

Fuentes wasn't a lock for the roster, as he struggled in September and he's battled back stiffness. The 26-year-old outfielder could be used off the bench at some point on Wednesday.

Diamondbacks activated OF Reymond Fuentes from the 10-day disabled list.

Fuentes wound up missing a little over a month with a left thumb contusion. He has batted just .240/.276/.350 in 41 games this season for Arizona.

Reymond Fuentes (thumb) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

Fuentes has missed the last three weeks with a bruised thumb. He wouldn't seem to be a given to be re-added to the major league roster when he's deemed ready.

Diamondbacks placed OF Reymond Fuentes on the 10-day disabled list with a left thumb contusion.

The move clears a roster spot for J.D. Martinez, who was acquired from the Tigers on Tuesday evening. Fuentes could be ready in 10 days, but the Diamondbacks might opt to send him back to the minor leagues at that point.

Reymond Fuentes clubbed a go-ahead homer in the 10th inning on Sunday, propelling the Diamondbacks to a 5-4 victory over the Phillies.

The Diamondbacks scored three times in the first inning then the offense shut down until Gregor Blanco tied the game with an RBI single in the ninth to force extra innings. That's where Fuentes crushed a Jeanmar Gomez offering over the wall in center field for the game-winning blast, his first home run of the season. He's hitting .239/.261/.358 with one homer and two RBI in his limited action this season.

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.

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.

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.
Thu, Jun 16, 2016 03:27:00 PM

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.
