DeJesus had his club option declined Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The move doesn't come as much of a surprise, as DeJesus struggled mightily after joining the Angels in a midseason trade, slashing just .125/.183/.143 in 56 at bats. He'll turn 36 over the offseason and has struggled to hit even .250 for the past few seasons, but he could find a spot as an extra outfielder somewhere in free agency.

The Tampa Bay Rays traded outfielder David DeJesus to the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday, according to the Tampa Tribune. The Rays acquired pitching prospect Eduar Lopez in exchange for DeJesus, who is expected to serve as part of a left field platoon for the Angels.

DeJesus is not in Saturday's lineup, the Tampa Tribune's Roger Mooney reports.

With lefty Dallas Keuchel on the hill for Houston the Rays will flood the lineup with right-handed bats. DeJesus should be back in the lineup Sunday with righty Lance McCullers on the mound for the Astros.

DeJesus is not in the lineup Thursday against the Indians, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

DeJesus has made seven straight starts for the Rays, but will sit Thursday with lefty Corey Kluber on the mound for Cleveland. Joey Butler will move over to left field, while Grady Sizemore will serve as the DH and bat cleanup. DeJesus has just one hit in seven at-bats against southpaws this season, showing that this move is typical for manager Kevin Cash.

DeJesus is back in the lineup Friday against Cleveland.

DeJesus was out of the lineup Thursday, but came on to knock a pinch-hit, RBI triple in the sixth inning to put the Rays up by 5-3. He'll bat cleanup Friday against right-hander Carlos Carrasco.

DeJesus is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

DeJesus will unsurprisingly find himself out of the lineup with a left-handed starting for the opposition in Chris Sale. The 35-year-old outfielder has seen just three at-bats against lefties this season, compared to 143 against right-handers.

DeJesus is out of the lineup Friday.

The Rays are up against another lefty so DeJesus will start the game on the bench. Brandon Guyer will start in left field with Joey Butler slotting in as the designated hitter.

DeJesus is out of the lineup for Thursday's game in Seattle, Roger Mooney of The Tampa Tribune reports.

The Rays are facing a lefty for a third straight game, and they're scheduled to face seven more southpaws over the next 10 contests. We won't be seeing much of DeJesus until mid-June.

DeJesus is out of the lineup Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

With lefty C.J. Wilson on the mound for the Angels the Rays will opt to get a righty-heavy lineup in for Tuesday's game. It is possible that DeJesus will sit again Wednesday with lefty Hector Santiago getting the ball for the Halos. Joey Butler and Brandon Guyer will get starts at designated hitter and left field, respectively, Tuesday.

DeJesus is out of Saturday's lineup against the Orioles, Roger Mooney of The Tampa Tribune reports.

While it's not crazy the 35-year-old DeJesus is getting a day off, it is curious that middle infielder Tim Beckham is getting the start at designated hitter while Joey Butler takes left field. There were previous reports of DeJesus taking groundballs at first, but the Tampa Bay Times is reporting that Kevin Cash won't be playing DeJesus there any time soon. Instead, they'll go with career middle infielder Jake Elmore.
