2020 Fantasy Outlook
Leyba debuted in late June and made sporadic appearances throughout the rest of the season, finishing with a .280/.367/.440 line in 30 plate appearances. The bulk of his season was spent at Triple-A Reno, where he hit .300/.351/.519 with 19 homers in 112 games, good for just a modest 107 wRC+ in the hitters' paradise of the Pacific Coast League. There doesn't appear to be a starting job open to Leyba to begin the season, but he could spend much of the year as a bench player, providing flexibility with his ability to play anywhere on the infield. He could get a bigger role if Jake Lamb underperforms or Arizona deals with injuries, in which case Leyba looks to have the skills to be competent but is unlikely to be a significant fantasy asset. He should be able to hit for a respectable average but doesn't have much power, and he didn't steal a single base in 2019. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a contract with the Tigers in July of 2012 that includes a $400,000 signing bonus. Traded to the Diamondbacks in December of 2014.
Returns to roster
2BArizona Diamondbacks
September 28, 2020
Leyba completed his suspension and was added to the active roster Monday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Leyba was issued an 80-game suspension in March after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance, but he'll be eligible to return for the start of the 2021 season after missing the entirety of the 60-game 2020 campaign. The 25-year-old should compete for a utility role during spring training after making a nice first impression over a limited sample in the majors in 2019.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Acquired in 2014 as part of a three-team deal that also netted Robbie Ray, the young Dominican batted .296/.355/.429 across High-A Visalia and Double-A Mobile last season. Once considered a top-10 prospect with the Tigers, Leyba blasted 10 home runs after never hitting more than two home runs in any of his previous full minor league seasons. Leyba also showed a good eye at the plate, particularly after making the jump to Double-A, where he posted a 9.8 percent walk rate and 12.6 percent strikeout rate in 174 plate appearances. Heading into 2017, the team will likely want to see Leyba sustain the success at Double-A Jackson for a full season. At 21 years old, Leyba is a young hitter to watch, especially if he sticks at shortstop, which has been his primary position since the trade to Arizona.
