Rays | DL not likely for Desmond Jennings

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 22:53:38 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) was out of the lineup Monday, April 27, against the New York Yankees for a second straight day due to left knee soreness. Manager Kevin Cash said the team is being overly cautious, and Jennings said the injury will not require a stint on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings should be avoided by FantasyScore players at $2,800 (or 5.6% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of the injury. Brandon Guyer ($1,900; 3.8% of cap) is a solid short-term option.

Rays | Desmond Jennings has bursitis

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 14:26:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) is dealing with bursitis in his knee.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is day-to-day and could wind up pinch hitting tonight. He could very well be back in the starting lineup tomorrow. Brandon Guyer ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a dice roll at FantasyScore tonight against New York Yankees starter Adam Warren, but coming off a four-RBI game Sunday, he may work out as a value play.

Rays | Desmond Jennings out vs. Yankees

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 13:28:30 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) is not in the starting lineup against the New York Yankees Monday, April 27, because of a sore right knee. He could be available to come off the bench, though.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Jennings ($2,800, 5,6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday, but his knee injury is obviously minor. Jennings is off to an uninspiring 14-for-63 start with just a single extra-base hit and two RBI. He does have five stolen bases, though.

Rays | Desmond Jennings not leading off?

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 17:09:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings could be moved down to the heart of the order, according to Rays manager Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has struggled to stay healthy, and his on-base skills fall short of the prototypical leadoff hitter's. A move to the middle of the order could hurt his runs scored potential, but a bump in RBI potential adequately offsets the dip. More well-rounded production would enhance the middle- to late-round pick's fantasy value.

Rays | Desmond Jennings healthy, lighter

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 09:46:46 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee), who is noticeably lighter this spring, said the knee injury that he dealt with last year is better. The team has talked of Jennings splitting time between center and left field when OF Kevin Kiermaier plays center field, and Jennings is on board with that plan.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings, 28, posted his lowest career batting average in 2014 (.244) while hitting 10 home runs and stealing 15 bases. His hype has surely fizzled, but he remains valuable for his combination of speed and power at the right price. He's more of a third or fourth outfielder in standard leagues.
