Rays | Marc Krauss out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 12:10:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Marc Krauss is not in the lineup Tuesday, June 30, against the Cleveland Indians. 1B Jake Elmore is batting instead.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a night off for Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap), possibly because of a .140 batting average and the fact he would face a righty in Danny Salazar. Elmore ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is hitting .203 against righties, which makes him a less appealing play.

Rays | Nick Franklin starting Saturday

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 13:55:53 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Nick Franklin will start at first base and hit eighth in the order Saturday, June 20, against the Cleveland Indians and RHP Corey Kluber. OF Jake Elmore comes out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Franklin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) continues to represent nothing more than the dismal return the Rays fetched in exchange for David Price in last season's trade with the Detroit Tigers and Seattle Mariners. Franklin should be kept far away from all FantasyScore lineup, especially when facing someone of Kluber's caliber.

Rays | Jake Elmore starting at first

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 15:11:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Jake Elmore is making another start at first base Tuesday, June 16, against the Washington Nationals. Elmore will hit eighth in the order against RHP Tanner Roark. 2B Nick Franklin comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Elmore ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has gone 5-for-16 in his last four games, and he's hitless in just one out of his past nine games. Elmore is much better suited to face lefties, and he should be avoided on FantasyScore while facing Roark.
