Rays | Curt Casali catching Saturday

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 12:10:48 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Curt Casali will bat ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez Saturday, July 25. C Rene Rivera is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Casali ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 3-for-19 this month with a home run and three RBIs and is only hitting .125 in 16 at-bats at Tropicana Field. Unless you desperately need FantasyScore salary cap relief, avoid using him.

Rays | Rene Rivera sitting out vs. Astros

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 08:32:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 12. C Curt Casali is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) enters the All-Star break with three runs, a home run run, seven RBI and a .421/.429/.632 slash line over his past six games. It is the best stretch of his otherwise awful season. Perhaps, he'll have a better second half, but Rivera shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a low-end catcher in AL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats. Casali ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as a desperation source of cap relief by FantasyScore players Sunday, as has just 116 career plate appearances and a .561 OPS to show for them.

Tampa Bay Rays C Bobby Wilson is starting and batting ninth against the Seattle Mariners Sunday, June 7. C Rene Rivera, who had started five of the team's previous six games behind the plate, will start at first base and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Wilson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) and Rivera ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) have done poorly at the plate this season and should be ignored in FantasyScore contests. Wilson is batting .154 with four RBIs through 22 games, while Rivera is just hitting .149 with 10 RBIs through 49 games.
