Rays | Logan Forsythe will be DH

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 13:43:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 2B Logan Forsythe will serve as the designated hitter against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Wednesday, June 22. OF Corey Dickerson will start in left field, while OF Taylor Motter will start in right field. 2B Nick Franklin will start at second base and is batting eighth. OF Jaff Decker is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Forsythe is hitting .260 with one home run and three RBI since returning from his injury. He should be a decent starting option for most owners. Dickerson should be an attractive player for owners looking for power, while Motter can be avoided in most leagues. Franklin has had only one at-bat since being recalled and is not a strong option at this point.

Rays | Mikie Mahtook sitting vs. Cleveland

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 12:01:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Mikie Mahtook is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 21. Jaff Decker is starting in right field and batting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Mahtook has a .154/.200/.185 slash line through 70 plate appearances this season, so there is limited fantasy appeal. He's receiving enough playing time of late to be a desperation option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, though. Decker is a fantasy afterthought at this point.

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 10:40:03 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 24. OF Jaff Decker is starting in right field and batting second against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: Decker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .200 (4-for-20) in a small sample size and shouldn't be considered as anything more than a really deep sleeper for FantasyScore lineups despite the nice lineup position.

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 11:26:17 -0700
