Rays | Eduar Lopez comes in for David Dejesus

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:16:21 -0700

The Tampa Bay Rays acquired RHP Eduar Lopez from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Tuesday, July 28, in exchange for OF David DeJesus.

Fantasy Tip: Lopez is several years away from appearing in the major leagues, but both Brandon Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) and Joey Butler ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) should receive more playing time with DeJesus gone from the crowded Rays' outfield. Both Guyer and Butler can occasionally be used on FantasyScore when facing a left-handed pitcher.

Rays | James Loney out Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 15:31:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney is not in the lineup against Detroit Tigers left-handed SP David Price Tuesday, July 28. 2B Logan Forsythe is starting at first base and hitting cleanup, while SS Tim Beckham slides over to second base and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Forsythe ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been a pleasant surprise for the Rays this year. However, he's not your prototypical cleanup hitter and is in a tough matchup against Price tonight. It might be tough for him to return any value Tuesday night.

Rays | David DeJesus resting

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 15:25:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF David DeJesus is not in the lineup against Detroit Tigers left-handed SP David Price Tuesday, July 28. OF Brandon Guyer is starting in left field and hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is in a favorable lineup spot but doesn't have much offensive upside, and he's stuck in a tough matchup against Price. He's one to avoid for your daily lineups.

Rays | John Jaso out vs. southpaw

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 15:22:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C John Jaso is not in the lineup against Detroit Tigers left-handed SP David Price Tuesday, July 28. OF Joey Butler is serving as the designated hitter and batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has hit very well against lefties this year (.314/.333/.486 with three of his six home runs in 70 at-bats), which could make him a contrarian play on FantasyScore while facing Price.

Rays | Curt Casali back in there

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:30:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Curt Casali is in the starting lineup for the fourth straight game after he slugged two home runs Monday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Casali ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has been swinging a hot stick and has, for the time being, overtaken Rene Rivera (.176/.210/.289) as the team's starting catcher. Don't be fooled: Casali remains a low-end catching option on FantasyScore, and he faces a tough matchup in Detroit Tigers starter David Price tonight.

Rays | Kevin Kiermaier back in lineup

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:26:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier (eye) is back in the lineup Tuesday, July 28, after suffering from blurred vision due to a cut on his left eye Monday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Kiermaier ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) should be avoided in all daily contests tonight while facing Detroit Tigers lefty David Price. Kiermaier swings from the left side and is hitting .242 (15-for-62) with none of his four dingers versus lefties in 2015.

Rays | Kevin Kiermaier departs early

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 20:46:16 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier (eye) left the game Monday, July 27, against the Detroit Tigers due to a small abrasion on his left eye.

Fantasy Tip: Kiermaier ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury. Brandon Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) could see more at-bats if Kiermaier is sidelined.

Rays | Asdrubal Cabrera coming off DL

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 20:17:42 -0700

The Tampa Bay Rays will activate 2B Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, July 28. 2B Jake Elmore has been optioned to Triple-A Durham.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) should be given a couple of games to knock off the rust before trusting him again in FantasyScore.

Rays | Steven Souza drops in lineup

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:39:02 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza will start in right field against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez Monday, July 27, and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Souza ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has seen most of his time near the top of the lineup but has dropped down for Monday's game. He has picked up only two hits in his last five games and is not a great option on FantasyScore at this point.

Rays | Desmond Jennings may play in rehab games

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:47:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) could begin a rehab assignment this weekend with Class AAA Durham.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been sidelined since April because of his knee injury but may be close to returning. He could rejoin the team in the next few weeks, but owners on FantasyScore may want to wait a few games before considering him for their lineup.

Rays | Drew Smyly to rehab Friday

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 13:30:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) will make another rehab start Friday, July 31, according to manager Kevin Cash. The team's reports on Smyly have been much better than his results so far.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly still has a ways to go to get stretched out in order to return to the Rays rotation in the second half of the season. Expecting him to make a big impact down the stretch for a fantasy squad is unrealistic, and he should only be stashed in deeper leagues.

Rays | Curt Casali starting again

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 07:38:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Curt Casali is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen Sunday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Casali ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) could return sneaky value for FantasyScore players Sunday. He carries a contest-minimum salary, and each of his last five hits have gone for extra bases. Keep expectations in check, though, as he boasts a .225/.289/.525 slash line over only 45 plate appearances this season.

Rays | Drew Smyly set for rehab assingment

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 07:19:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly (shoulder) is expected to began his rehab assignment with Class AAA Durham Sunday, July 26. He is scheduled to throw approximately 45 pitches or three innings.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly is rehabbing from a torn labrum and likely will have minimal fantasy impact this season, if any. He'll need to be stretched out and avoid any setbacks, so a few starts in September is likely a best-case scenario. At this point, he is a desperation stash in the majority of formats.

Rays | Logan Forsythe returns to action

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 12:17:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 2B Logan Forsythe is back in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez Saturday, July 25, batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Forsythe ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is 7-for-17 with a home run and four RBIs over the past week. He is 3-for-9 in his career versus Gonzalez with one double and warrants consideration for FantasyScore lineups.

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.
