Rays | No Asdrubal Cabrera vs. Royals

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:06:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. SS Tim Beckham is starting at shortstop and batting sixth against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Cabrera ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. The shortstop is scorching hot with a .374/.419/.589 slash line and 24 runs over 28 games since the All-Star break. Beckham ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has hit four of his six home runs against lefties, and he owns a .532 slugging percentage against them. He checks out a potential dice roll for FantasyScore players Sunday.

Rays | John Jaso will not start

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

Tampa Bay Rays C John Jaso is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Thursday, Aug. 27. SS Tim Beckham will serve as the designated hitter and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jaso ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) could return to the lineup in the near future. Beckham ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting only .231 in limited playing time this season and is not a great option on Fantasy Score.

Rays | John Jaso benched against southpaw

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 15:56:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C John Jaso is not in the lineup against Houston Astros left-handed SP Dallas Keuchel Wednesday, Aug. 19. SS Asdrubal Cabrera is serving as the designated hitter, while SS Tim Beckham starts at the 6 and is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Jaso effectively has become a platoon hitter for the Rays, only facing right-handed pitchers. Take note on FantasyScore. Cabrera ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been really hot this month and hits lefties particularly well this year, but he'll be a risky play against Keuchel tonight. Beckham ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should be avoided.

Rays | James Loney out Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 15:31:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney is not in the lineup against Detroit Tigers left-handed SP David Price Tuesday, July 28. 2B Logan Forsythe is starting at first base and hitting cleanup, while SS Tim Beckham slides over to second base and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Forsythe ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been a pleasant surprise for the Rays this year. However, he's not your prototypical cleanup hitter and is in a tough matchup against Price tonight. It might be tough for him to return any value Tuesday night.

Rays | Tim Beckham starting at short

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 07:41:05 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Tim Beckham is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh in the order Sunday, July 19, against the Toronto Blue Jays and RHP Marco Estrada. OF Jake Elmore comes out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting just .188 against righties this season, and he should be left alone on FantasyScore.

Rays | Jake Elmore not starting

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 07:29:05 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Jake Elmore is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Saturday, July 18. SS Tim Beckham will start at shortstop and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Elmore ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the near future. Beckham ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has not played since returning to the team, and owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Rays | Jake Elmore, Tim Beckham to form platoon

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 16:42:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Jake Elmore and 2B Tim Beckham will comprise a platoon at shortstop based on the opposing pitching matchups from here on out, according to manager Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Tip: Elmore ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is hitting .213/.272/.303 with two home runs and 16 RBI in 44 games. Beckham ($1,800, 3.6% of cap), meanwhile, has a .213/.267/.426 slash line with five home runs and 16 RBI in 37 games. Both are right-handed hitters, so there's no clear platoon advantage, but both infielders can safely be avoided in all but the deepest of fantasy formats and will remain low-end daily plays.

Rays | Tim Beckham injures hamstring

Sat, 30 May 2015 18:39:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Tim Beckham (hamstring) exited against the Baltimore Orioles with a right hamstring cramp Saturday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has been inconsistent in his first extended stay in the majors, and until he is healthy and has improved on his .213 average a bit, he needs to be avoided at FantasyScore.

Rays | Asdrubal Cabrera sitting out

Mon, 25 May 2015 13:07:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. SS Tim Beckham will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is dealing with a groin injury and his return to the lineup is unknown at this point. Beckham ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has four hits over his last four games with two home runs and three RBI in that span. Beckham could be an option for owners if he receives more playing time.

Mon, 25 May 2015 12:57:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 25, with a broken finger. In corresponding moves, the Rays recalled SS Tim Beckham and 2B Jake Elmore from Class AAA Durham.

Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should be removed from further consideration for now. It is not known how long he will be out.
