Rays | Desmond Jennings placed on 15-day DL

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:44:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, Aug. 27. In a corresponding move, OF Joey Butler was recalled from Class AAA Durham.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) appeared in 10 games before requiring another stint on the disabled list. At this point, he is nothing more than a desperation stash in deep mixed leagues. Butler is a low-end outfield option for AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, and he stands as a potential value play in the right matchups for FantasyScore players.

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 22:27:06 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) was out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Minnesota Twins due to a bruised left knee. He is considered day to day.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is likely to return soon, but avoid him in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury.

Rays | Daniel Nava leading off vs. Twins

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:29:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Daniel Nava is leading off against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Wednesday, Aug. 26. OF Desmond Jennings (knee) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is day-to-day with a knee injury, so Nava ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) enters the lineup. It isn't a bad matchup, either, as Duffey ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is making just his fourth career start Wednesday. Just note, while cheap at FantasyScore, Nava is having a dreadful season and owns a .161/.282/.183 slash line over 111 plate appearances.

Rays | Desmond Jennings not expected Wednesday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 09:11:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) is not expected to play Wednesday, Aug. 26, after bruising his left knee Tuesday, Aug. 25. It is the same knee that required surgery for bursitis and caused him to miss 96 games this year.

Fantasy Tip: Because it's Jennings' ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) same knee that required surgery earlier this year, you have to wonder if he'll land back on the DL. Avoid him for now on FantasyScore. Brandon Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) would likely benefit the most if Jennings misses extended time again.

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 19:47:20 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) left the game Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Minnesota Twins due to a bruised left knee.

Fantasy Tip: The brittle Jennings ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has struggled even harder than usual to stay healthy this season. FantasyScore players will want to avoid him until he can officially return and play a game or two to prove his health.

Rays | Desmond Jennings not in lineup

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 15:27:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. OF Grady Sizemore is playing left field and hitting second against Houston Astros SP Scott Feldman.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has five of his six home runs against right-handed pitching in 2015, but he's also hitting only .233 (40-for-172) against them. He remains a low-end sleeper outfield selection on FantasyScore.

Rays | Desmond Jennings batting second

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 15:17:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is batting second against Houston Astros SP Scott Kazmir Monday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is 5-for-10 since returning from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 14. While it is a small sample size, it is a positive for the outfielder. Still, you'll likely be able to find better matchups at FantasyScore, and Jennings likely should remained reserved to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Rays | Desmond Jennings back with a bang

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 20:51:39 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) went 3-for-4 with an RBI in a 5-3 loss to the Texas Rangers Friday, Aug. 14, in his first start since April 24.

Fantasy Tip: With his combination of speed and power, Jennings ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) could be worth an immediate look at FantasyScore given his cheap price tag.

Rays | Desmond Jennings returns to the lineup

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 14:46:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) is starting in left field and batting sixth against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Friday, Aug. 14. OF Grady Sizemore is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) hasn't played since Saturday, April 25, and he owned a .544 OPS over 72 plate appearances to start the season. You'll want to take a wait-and-see with him at FantasyScore, especially after such a lengthy absence. A speculative add in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues isn't out of the question, but in the majority of leagues, Jennings isn't worth a roster spot.

Rays | Desmond Jennings to return Friday?

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 14:45:48 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) is expected to return from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 14, if he can get through nine innings of a rehab game Wednesday, Aug. 12, without setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will likely return to the starting center field role for Tampa, but he could be eased back in. Kevin Kiermaier figures to lose the most playing time as a result. Jennings can mainly be a fantasy asset for his speed in deep mixed leagues.
