Tampa Bay Rays 2B Nick Franklin (oblique) is expected to start the season on the disabled list, and 2B Logan Forsythe will receive the majority of playing time at the keystone, according to manager Kevin Cash.
Fantasy Tip: Continue to check back for updates on Franklin's return timeline. In favorable matchups, Forsythe ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) could be a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players. Although, cap relief would likely be his best asset. When healthy, Franklin has power potential, but he is a .213 hitter through his first 502 at-bats. He is best left to the waiver wire in the majority of fantasy formats.

The Tampa Bay Rays placed 2B Ben Zobrist (thumb) on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, May 15, and recalled INF Cole Figueroa from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Zobrist dislocated his thumb sliding headfirst into second base yesterday and will need several weeks to heal. Sean Rodriguez is the likely candidate to take over most of the playing time at the keystone in Zobrist's absence, with Logan Forsythe mixing in occasionally. Figueroa will serve as middle infield insurance. Grab Rodriguez in AL-only or cavernous mixed leagues if you need MI help.

Tampa Bay Rays 2B Ben Zobrist (thumb) will be evaluated Thursday, May 15, when it will be determined if he'll need to go on the disabled list. He might need two weeks before his thumb is fully healed.
Fantasy Tip: There seems to be a pretty good chance that Zobrist will land on the DL so that he'll have sufficient time to heal. Sean Rodriguez and Logan Forsythe will likely split duties at second base with Zobrist sidelined. Rodriguez should be your first target in deep mixed and AL-only leagues if you're looking for middle infield help.
