Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:31:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: There's a good chance that Kiermaier ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is back in the starting lineup tomorrow. However, he's a weak option for daily gamers with a .261 average on the year and only seven home runs. Plus, he typically hits near the bottom of the Tampa lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is really only worth considering on FantasyScore as a deep sleeper when he's hitting leadoff for the Rays, so look to avoid him tonight for your daily lineups.

Fantasy Tip: Give Moore a start to see if his refinements in Triple-A paid off before using him on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Kiermaier ($4000, 8.0% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Daniel Nava ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) replaced him and could see at-bats if Kiermaier is forced to miss time.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 12:21:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has hit three of his six home runs against left-handed pitchers and owns a respectable .280/.316/.419 slash line against southpaws this season. Hitting in a ripe lineup sport, Butler is worth a look as a budget play at FantasyScore Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Daily players could take a speculative leap of faith on Arencibia, as he owns plenty of power potential. However, he also owns an uninspiring .255 career on-base percentage.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:44:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) was tagged with just his second loss since June 30. He is scheduled to make his next start against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 20:20:01 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Smyly ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has struggled with efficiency lately, and he hasn't made it out of the fifth inning in three starts since returning from injury. He isn't worth using at FantasyScore right now.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 15:38:52 -0700
Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (hand) has been allowed to starting swinging a bat again after undergoing an X-ray on his broken hand. Souza said he hopes to be able to return to the team in the middle of September.
Fantasy Tip: Souza ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has struggled with injuries this season and is only hitting .214 this season. Owners on FantasyScore probably will be able to find better options to use when Souza returns to the lineup.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:39:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Arencibia recently joined the team but should not be a fantasy option at this time.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:33:58 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting .375 with three RBI this month and could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:27:12 -0700
Tampa Bay Rays C John Jaso is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Thursday, Aug. 27. SS Tim Beckham will serve as the designated hitter and is batting seventh in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Jaso ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) could return to the lineup in the near future. Beckham ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting only .231 in limited playing time this season and is not a great option on Fantasy Score.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:22:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sizemore ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Butler was recently called up from the minor leagues and should not be a starting option at this point.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:11:59 -0700
Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney will not be in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Thursday, Aug. 27, because he is serving his one-game suspension. OF Daniel Nava will start at first base and is batting second in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should return to the lineup after his suspension. Nava ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting only .194 this month and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:44:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) appeared in 10 games before requiring another stint on the disabled list. At this point, he is nothing more than a desperation stash in deep mixed leagues. Butler is a low-end outfield option for AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, and he stands as a potential value play in the right matchups for FantasyScore players.
