Rays | Joey Butler hitting second

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:34:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Joey Butler will serve as the designated hitter and bat second in the order Tuesday, May 26, against the Seattle Mariners. OF Kevin Kiermaier was dropped to seventh in the order against Mariners LHP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has a .302 batting average on the season, but he's hitting just .200 against lefties. The reverse split can likely be blamed on a small 20-game sample, and Butler can be considered for use in GPP tournaments.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has gone 4-for-7 in his last three games, with two runs scored and two stolen bases. Guyer will be worth a look as a GPP option in FantasyScore contests.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap), who is hitting .289 (11-for-38) with two RBI against right-handed pitching this year, is a very mediocre FantasyScore option tonight, especially while hitting at the bottom of the lineup.

Rays | Joey Butler added to lineup vs. Texas

Thu, 07 May 2015 14:23:04 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Joey Butler is batting sixth as the designated hitter against the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) draws in with Evan Longoria feeling under the weather. Butler is sporting a .214 batting average over 15 plate appearances this season, and he should be viewed as nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Thursday.

Sun, 03 May 2015 07:37:18 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should receive some starts with Jennings out of the lineup. He has four hits in his last four games but is only hitting .240 this season with one home run and seven RBI. Owners on FantasyScore probably will be able to find better options.
