Adeiny Hechavarria (hamstring) could return to Grapefruit League action on Sunday.

Rays manager Kevin Cash clarified Wednesday that Adeiny Hechavarria has been held out of action the last few days due to issues with his right hamstring.

Adeiny Hechavarria has been held out of action the last few days in Rays camp due to tightness behind his right knee.

Hechavarria slipped while fielding a groundball during a drill on Monday, but this doesn't sound like any sort of long-term concern. The 28-year-old shortstop is expected to resume baseball activities on Thursday and could return to Grapefruit League action over the weekend.

Adeiny Hechavarria won his arbitration case against the Rays and will earn a $5.9 million salary in 2018.

The Rays had countered at $5.35 million. The 28-year-old shortstop was in his final season of arbitration and will hit free agency following the 2018 campaign. He's fresh off of a 2017 season where he slashed .261/.289/.406 with eight homers, 30 RBI and four stolen bases between the Rays and Marlins.

Adeiny Hechavarria requested $5.9 million and was offered $5.35 million by the Rays when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

This is his third and final year of arbitration eligibility. The slick-fielding shortstop batted .261/.289/.406 with eight home runs and 30 RBI in 97 games for the Marlins and Rays last year. He will be a free agent after the upcoming season.

Adeiny Hechavarria went 2-for-3 and cracked a solo home run during a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

His fifth-inning shot off starter Luis Severino gave the Rays a brief 1-0 lead but it ended up being their only run of the night. The shortstop has a .255/.285/.402 slash line with a paltry eight homers and 30 RBI in 95 games split between the Marlins and Rays this year.

Adeiny Hechavarria went 2-for-3 and scored a run in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

He doubled in the eighth inning, advanced on a passed ball and then scored on a Kevin Kiermaier ground-out. It was the Rays' only run of the evening. Hechevarria has spent time with both Florida teams this year, batting .261/.293/.409 with seven homers and 26 RBI in 87 games.

Adeiny Hechavarria homered off Sonny Gray in the bottom of the eighth to lead the Rays to a 2-1 win over the Yankees on Tuesday.

It was Hechavarria's career-high sixth homer. He has five in just 64 games for the Rays this year. That's a rate of one homer every 43 at-bats, compared to the one every 163 at-bats he hit during his Marlins career. Of course, he still has just a .278 OBP for his new club.

Adeiny Hechavarria singled, doubled, and tripled in the Rays' loss to the Yankees on Monday.

He finished a home run short of the cycle at Citi Field in Queens, where the Rays had to move this three-game series due to the threat of Hurricane Irma back home in Florida. Hechavarria finished the 5-1 loss with Tampa Bay's lone run batted in.

Adeiny Hechavarria hit his fourth home run of the season in a loss to the Cardinals on Saturday.

Not known for his offense, Hechavarria got a hold of a Mike Leake offering in the seventh inning for a solo blast. It's actually the second time in six games that he's homered, despite homering just two times in 63 games prior to that. The 28-year-old has been on a bit of an offensive tear lately, going 11-for-31 over his last nine games. That stretch has helped raise his season line to .250/.268/.353.

Adeiny Hechavarria went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI against the Cardinals on Friday.

He was due; Hechavarria came into this one batting .226/.248/.308 in 159 at-bats for the Rays. The team would have been better off never having acquired him -- they almost certainly wouldn't have ended up giving away Tim Beckham -- but, hey, he did have a nice game tonight.

Adeiny Hechavarria hit his first home run of the season on Wednesday against the Red Sox.

His solo shot off Rick Porcello was the first of two homers the Rays produced in the sixth inning. Hechavarria is a wizard with the glove but is not much of a hitter. He has a .247/.262/.319 slash line with one homer and 13 RBI in 54 games.

Adeiny Hechavarria (groin) went 0-for-4 in his return to the Rays' lineup on Friday against the Angels.

Hechavarria missed the final game of the season's first half due to a groin issue, but the rest over the All-Star break appears to have alleviated the concern. The light-hitting shortstop is slashing .255/.266/.330 on the year and remains an unappealing option in most fantasy formats.
