Duda's was traded to Tampa Bay on Thursday, with reliever Drew Smith heading to New York, Joel Sherman of the MLB Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Duda will fit in nicely with Tampa Bay, as the 31-year-old is set to receive ample playing time between first base and the DH spot, while likely spending a majority of time in the latter position. Thus far in 2017, Duda is hitting .246/.347/.532 with 17 home runs and 73 RBI. Since the Rays are in New York facing off against the Yankees for a four-game series this weekend, Duda could be available as soon as Friday night. Moving forward, this will give Corey Dickerson more starts in the outfield while decreasing Brad Miller and Trevor Plouffe's playing time in the DH role.

Duda is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the A's.

EDGE Analysis

With lefty Sean Manaea taking the hill for Oakland, Duda will head to the bench in favor of T.J. Rivera at first base. Duda has hit safely in seven of eight games since the All-Star break, but he's batting just .196 with a .255 OBP against left-handed pitching for the season. He's a free agent after this year and could be moved prior to the trade deadline.

Duda went 2-for-4 with a solo home run during Monday's loss to St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

Duda's .905 OPS jumps off the page, but because he's been limited to just 66 games, he's collected only 34 RBI and 28 runs. Overall, he's provided serviceable fantasy marks, and as long as he stays healthy, the first baseman should continue to provide solid numbers going forward.

Duda (illness) is starting at first base and hitting fifth Saturday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

He was a late scratch Friday as he was not fully over the illness that bothered him for a couple days earlier in the week. Duda has a pretty favorable matchup against righty Jeremy Hellickson. He is slashing .264/.384/.556 against righties on the season.

Duda was scratched from Friday's lineup with flu-like symptoms.

EDGE Analysis

Duda was day-to-day with an illness prior to Friday's game, and it appears as though he was unable to go after all. The first baseman will spend his third straight game out of the lineup (although he did come in to pinch hit during Thursday's affair), as T.J. Rivera received the late addition to the starting lineup. He should be considered day-to-day yet again.

Duda (illness) is starting at first base and batting fifth Friday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Duda didn't start in Thursday's series finale against the Marlins due to flu-like symptoms, but did make an appearance as a pinch hitter. The 31-year-old returns to his regular post at first base, where he's hitting .251 with 13 home runs this season, in addition to a .915 OPS.

Duda is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

After starting the past five games, the first baseman will get a day off with left-hander Jeff Locke on the mound for Miami. In his place, Wilmer Flores is manning first while batting fifth in the order.

Duda went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

It's his first homer in eight games and 13th of the year. Duda had been mired in a slump, hitting .135 (5-for-37) over his prior 13 games, but the explosion of extra-base hits seems like a strong sign he's about to heat up again.

Duda is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Duda will get the day off as Wilmer Flores takes over at first base for Wednesday's game. With left-hander Rich Hill on the mound, this is a good opportunity for manager Terry Collins to give Duda a night of rest.
