Tampa Bay Rays news, rumors and injuries
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:26:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should at least return to the strong side of a platoon at first base to face right-handed pitchers, meaning Marc Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) could lose whatever little fantasy value he may have had. Loney has very little power to speak of and is batting-average dependent, making him a fantasy commodity in the very deep mixed leagues, at best.

Fantasy Tip: Moore ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is at a cheap price if you want to risk it, but it's his first start in a year due to Tommy John surgery. We'd avoid him on FantasyScore for a start or two.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:03:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Souza ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is hitless in 21 at-bats the last seven days and should be avoided in his deep slide. Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has a .276-2-16 line this season, but he's really just a guy. Sorry for the weak pun, but avoid him on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: DeJesus has only 10 hits in his last 69 at-bats (.145) since the beginning of June with no home runs and five RBI. He's batting-average dependent and was due for regression. Sizemore ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has a homer and four hits in his first 14 at-bats with the Rays, but he's about one of the weakest cleanup hitters you'll see in baseball and should be avoided on FantasyScore today against the Klubot.

Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) remains on pace to rejoin the parent club this weekend. FantasyScore owners should avoid him during the first game or two after he is activated so that he can prove that he is completely healthy.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi (oblique) allowed one run on two hits over four innings in a rehab start for Class A Charlotte Wednesday, July 1. He walked one and struck out two while throwing 55 pitches.
Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) won't return before the All-Star break but should remain stashed in all fantasy formats. Check back for further updates on his rehab assignment.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:11:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has hit well when given the opportunity this season, but against Carrasco, Butler is nothing more than a flier for FantasyScore contests. It is also worth noting, Grady Sizemore ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has eaten into Butler's playing time. They appear to be in a platoon of sorts, so both of their seasonal values takes a hit.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:19:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($5,300; or 10.6% of cap) pitched pretty well after returning from a groin injury. It was his first loss in six starts. It appears safe to use him in FantasyScore despite the loss, as he had no setbacks following his injury.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:19:19 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Longo ($4,600; or 9.2% of cap) wrapped up June hitting .277 with three doubles, three homers and nine RBI with 25 strikeouts in 94 at-bats. He has been a decent mid-level FantasyScore option, but be careful of the Ks.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:18:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Loney is expected to return sometime this weekend. FantasyScore players need to wait to see him officially return and prove his health before trusting him again.

Tampa Bay Rays OF Joey Butler remains out of the lineup for the third straight game Tuesday, June 30. OF Grady Sizemore is yet again serving as the designated hitter and batting second against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar.
Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) hasn't seen a start since Sizemore was added to the active roster, although Tampa still plans for Butler to be a big part of their offense. It's hard to deny that he'll struggle to find consistent playing time, though, hurting his fantasy value in deeper mixed leagues. Sizemore ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has made an impression with four hits (one homer) in his first nine at-bats, but he's a poor option against Salazar tonight.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 12:10:17 -0700
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.
Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:16:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($5,300; or 10.6% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can make it through a full start without any setbacks.
Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:15:24 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Kiermaier ($2,400; or 4.8% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can get back on track. The good news is that he made it through a full game without any setbacks after missing a pair of games due to sore legs.

Tampa Bay Rays OF Joey Butler, who is out of the lineup for the second straight day Monday, June 29, remains a big part of the team's plans despite the addition of OF Grady Sizemore to the active roster, according to manager Kevin Cash.
Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has hit a rough patch of late, going 5-for-25 (.200) with no home runs and an RBI since June 21. Sizemore ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is worth an addition in deep AL leagues in the short term, but don't expect much from him on FantasyScore.
