The Tampa Bay Rays have been impressed with OF Desmond Jennings this spring, especially with the way he's driving the ball in games. Jennings looked good in September of last season after healing from a fractured left middle finger, and manager Joe Maddon says the young outfielder is still learning the game. Maddon thinks the start will be for Jennings to get on base more often, since he packs plenty of power in his stick.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings' 2013 injuries set him back and scare many drafters away from him this season, but his combination of power and speed are among the most intriguing of any young outfielder in the game. You can have him pretty cheap as a second or third outfielder.
