Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer (ankle) was given the day off Monday, March 23, due to a mild ankle sprain. Guyer is expected to play in a minor league game Wednesday, March 25, and he might receive six to nine at-bats in that game.
Fantasy Tip: Guyer is likely to serve as a backup in right field behind Steven Souza, and he could see some at-bats as the designated hitter as well. He has a little pop and could be a nice low-end FantasyScore play at just $2,000 (or 4.0% of cap) when he starts.
