Rays | Steven Souza, Brandon Guyer updates

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 15:24:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (hamstring) took batting practice and ran Tuesday, June 28, but he's not scheduled for a rehab assignment yet. OF Brandon Guyer (hamstring) is playing another rehab game Tuesday but isn't likely to come off the disabled list Wednesday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer is obviously closer to a return than Souza, but both could be back by this weekend. Guyer was successful hitting leadoff in his limited opportunities there before his injury and is useful for his modest contributions with the stick in deep mixed and AL-only leagues if he's playing every day. Souza whiffs often but has an intriguing power-speed combination for those in deep mixed affairs. Check to see if either are available on the waiver wire now.

Rays | Brandon Guyer, Steven Souza back soon

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 14:51:46 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OFs Brandon Guyer (hamstring) and Steven Souza (hip) are both expected to return during the current homestand. Guyer makes a rehab start for Class A Charlotte Monday, June 27, and he could rejoin the team during the series against the Boston Red Sox. Souza started running Monday for the first time since his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Both Guyer and Souza should return to starting roles for the Rays when they're ready. Guyer had been productive atop the order for Tampa, but he's mainly attractive in cavernous mixed and AL leagues because he won't contribute greatly in any one category. Souza is an all-or-nothing type with an intriguing power-speed combination.

Rays | Brandon Guyer rehab update

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 18:58:20 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer (hamstring) is scheduled to resume running this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer was batting .271 with six home runs and 14 RBI in 144 at-bats before landing on the disabled list and should remain stashed in AL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues. DFS owners should wait until he has played in at least one game without experiencing any setbacks before considering him for their lineups again.

Rays | Brandon Guyer placed on DL

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 09:33:41 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, June 5, because of a left hamstring strain. The team also recalled SS Nick Franklin from Triple-A Durham.

Fantasy Tip: Mikie Mahtook and Taylor Motter are options to start in left field while Guyer is sidelined. Both players are hitting under .140 over the last seven days and should only be used in AL-only leagues at this point. Franklin probably will have a utility role during his time with the team and could be a short-term option for owners in AL-only leagues.

Rays | Steve Pearce, Tim Beckham starting

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 11:18:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays INF Steve Pearce will bat cleanup and serve as the designated hitter against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana Saturday, June 4, with OF Brandon Guyer receiving the day off. In addition, INF Tim Beckham will bat ninth and play second base in place of 2B Taylor Motter.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce is hitting .310 with five home runs and 11 RBI over the past four weeks and should be viewed as a viable option in all formats. Beckham is batting .185 through 54 at-bats and should be viewed as nothing more than desperation cap relief in daily fantasy games.

Rays | Steve Souza out of the lineup

Fri, 27 May 2016 12:25:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Friday, May 27. OF Brandon Guyer will start in right field, while OF Corey Dickerson will start in left field. 1B Steve Pearce will serve as the designated hitter, while INF Taylor Motter will start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Motter has received playing time at multiple positons since being recalled but is hitting only .222 in eight games. He does have two home runs and four RBI during that span, which makes him a sleeper starting candidate for desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues. Guyer, Dickerson and Pearce are good options to be used in daily leagues.

Rays | Corey Dickerson, Brad Miller out

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:26:28 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson and SS Brad Miller are not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins left-handed SP Justin Nicolino Wednesday, May 25. OF Brandon Guyer is the designated and is hitting leadoff again, OF Mikie Mahtook is starting in left field and batting second and SS Taylor Motter is at the 6 and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer has been a consistent source of production of late (.314-4-10 in May) and is a fine value choice in daily game tonight against Nicolino. Mahtook did manage nine home runs and a .295 average last year and could be a successful deep sleeper given his lineup position. Motter has also earned some more playing time with two home runs in his first 13 major league at-bats. He, however, is more of a desperation low-end selection at shortstop.

Mon, 23 May 2016 20:47:28 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer went 3-for-5 with one home run and one RBI against the Miami Marlins Monday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer has received more playing time over the last few weeks and has seven hits in his last three games. Guyer should be an attractive starting candidate in daily fantasy leagues and could be used in some deeper mixed leagues.
