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.
Aug 9 - 10:28 PM

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.

Adeiny Hechavarria is not in the Rays' lineup Sunday due to a groin injury.

Manager Kevin Cash said that Hechavarria could be available off the bench, so he should be ready to start again at the beginning of the second half. Taylor Featherston is at shortstop Sunday.
Jul 9 - 11:07 AM

Adeiny Hechavarria went 4-for-4 and plated the game-tying run in the ninth inning on Friday as the Rays rallied to beat the Orioles.

The recently-acquired shortstop came through with a two-out, RBI single off of Brad Brach in the ninth to tie the game and force extra innings. He's now hitting .329/.341/.430 on the season.
Jun 30 - 10:50 PM

Adeiny Hechavarria went 1-for-3 and drove home a pair of runs in his Rays' debut on Tuesday.

The recently-acquired shortstop came through with a run-scoring single in the eighth inning and tacked on an insurance run with a sacrifice fly in the 10th. He should see regular playing time at shortstop for the Rays and is worth a look in AL-only formats.
Jun 27 - 10:34 PM

Rays acquired SS Adeiny Hechavarria from the Marlins in exchange for RHP Ethan Clark and OF Braxton Lee.

The deal was reported earlier Monday and is now official. Tampa will cover the rest of what remains of $4.35 million salary for this season, which is why they gave up very little in the deal. Hechavarria is a career .255/.291/.337 hitter, but he's an elite defender and is under team control through 2018. He'll remain on the disabled list for now but should be activated later this week.
Jun 26 - 6:28 PM

Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that the Rays are set to acquire Adeiny Hechavarria from the Marlins for minor league outfielder Braxton Lee and right-hander Ethan Clark.

The deal isn't yet official. The Rays are expected to cover the remainder of Hechavarria's $4.35 million salary for this season. The 28-year-old has been sidelined for over a month with an oblique injury, but he was slated to make his return this week. He'll presumably take over as the primary shortstop for the Rays. Hechavarria, who is under team control through 2018, is a .255/.291/.337 hitter in the majors.
Jun 26 - 3:28 PM

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com, if the Rays assume all of Adeiny Hechavarria's salary in a trade, they'd like the Marlins to include "a nice, cheap power arm."

Crasnick mentions Kyle Barraclough as a potential fit, though it's unclear whether the two sides have discussed him. That sounds pretty extreme for the Marlins to give him up just to part with the remainder of Hechavarria's $4.35 million salary for this season. Either way, if the Marlins want teams to pick up his salary, they aren't going to get much in return. Crasnick reports that talks between the Marlins and Rays are "about to come to a head" while Bob Nightengale of USA Today hears that the two sides are optimistic they'll complete a deal Monday.
Jun 26 - 1:25 PM

Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that the Rays are "believed to be the front-runners" to acquire Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria.

The Rays would presumably install Hechavarria as their regular shortstop and move Tim Beckham to second base. Frisaro notes that the Marlins are in discussions with multiple teams, but they hope to get a deal done before Tuesday. Hechavarria, who is nearing a return from an oblique injury, was batting .277/.288/.385 with one home run and six RBI over 20 games prior to landing on the DL. The 28-year-old is making $4.35 million this season and is under team control through 2018. The Marlins want to clear his salary and net one or two pitching prospects in return.
