Rays | Rene Rivera out of the lineup

Sun, 17 May 2015 09:11:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 17. C Bobby Wilson will be the starting catcher for the Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been struggling at the plate this season and is receiving a day off. Wilson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .152 in his limited playing time this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Rays | Rene Rivera starting at 1B

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 14:52:39 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera is starting at first base and hitting seventh in the lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Daniel Norris Tuesday, April 14. C Bobby Wilson is taking the catching duties and hitting ninth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) isn't an attractive FantasyScore offensive weapon, but it's notable that he's seeing time at first base with James Loney on the DL. If that continues, it'll raise his short-term value in two-catcher and AL-only leagues with more playing time.

Rays | Rene Rivera hitless

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 15:19:54 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera is hitless through his first 17 at-bats of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($2,000, 4% of cap) is the starting catcher for the Rays, but his fantasy value is minimal as long as he keeps this up. Sadly, with John Jaso on the DL your options are minimal with the Rays. If you're punting on catcher, your best bet may be to go with someone like Tyler Flowers (White Sox) or Francisco Cervelli (Pirates), who have the same value.

Rays | Rene Rivera might return Wednesday

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 19:00:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera (calf) has been nursing a tight left calf, but he was able to take swings Monday, March 23. He might be able to return to spring game action Wednesday, March 25, after the team's scheduled day off.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera tops the depth chart in Tampa Bay. If he is forced to miss any time during the season it would be Curt Casali who would benefit the most.
