Rays | Desmond Jennings, Curt Casali out

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 10:12:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings and C Curt Casali are not in the starting lineup versus San Francisco Giants SP Albert Suarez Saturday, June 18. OF Mikie Mahtook will bat seventh and play center field, while C Hank Conger will bat ninth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Mahtook is hitting only .172 in 58 at-bats this season, including a .108 mark versus right-handed pitching, so he should be avoided this afternoon. Conger is btating .300 with two home runs and six RBI in 30 at-bats over the past four weeks and can be viewed as a source of productive salary cap relief in DFS.

Rays | Brandon Guyer back in lineup Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 10:36:40 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer is back in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer Saturday, May 21, batting leadoff and playing left field, while OF Desmond Jennings receives the day off. In addition, C Curt Casali will start behind the plate and hit ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer is batting .299 with four home runs and 12 RBI through 87 at-bats and is worthy of consideration as a value play in DFS. Although Casali has five home runs and 14 RBI in 80 at-bats, he is batting just .188 and has struck out 36 times. Better catching options should be available for a similar price.

Mon, 16 May 2016 21:44:26 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Curt Casali went 2-for-5 with one home run and three RBI against the Toronto Blue Jays Monday, May 16.

Fantasy Tip: Casali has been playing better in May than he did in the first month of the season. He has hit four home runs this month and has recorded seven RBI during that span. He is not the best starting candidate for owners, but he does have value in two-catcher leagues.

Rays | Curt Casali re-discovering his offense

Wed, 04 May 2016 20:54:55 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Curt Casali went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday, May 4, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Casali has homered in back-to-back games, and he has at least one RBI in each of his past three games. Slowly, but surely, he is re-discovering his offense. He has hit safely in a season-high three games, and he can be trusted as a No. 2 receiver in AL-only fantasy play. He is also a nice low-cost sleeper in DFS.

Rays | Several TB regulars return to lineup

Sun, 01 May 2016 07:24:10 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Brad Miller, OF/DH Corey Dickerson and 1B Logan Morrison are back in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman Sunday, May 1. In addition, C Hank Conger is starting behind the plate in place of Curt Casali, batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: The left-handed-hitting Miller, Dickerson and Morrison were rested for Saturday's game because the Rays were facing a left-handed pitcher. Although Miller is batting below .200 for the season, he is 6-for-13 with two doubles and a home run over the past week and is worth considering as a value play in daily fantasy games. Dickerson is hitless in his last 12 at-bats and Morrison is batting just .100 through his first 60 at-bats, so both players should be avoided this afternoon.
