Rays | Jake McGee may play in rehab game soon

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 05:26:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) is expected to begin a rehab assignment in the near future.

Fantasy Tip: McGee likely will need to pitch in a few rehab games before rejoining the Rays. McGee may take over the closer role when he is activated from the 15-day disabled list and could be added to starting lineups in fantasy leagues.

Rays | Alex Cobb may throw off mound soon

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 05:20:04 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Cobb (forearm) could start throwing off a mound in seven to 10 days.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) is still several weeks away from returning to the team but appears to be making progress in his recovery. Owners should continue to monitor his progress but should look for other options on FantasyScore.

Rays | Alex Cobb to throw Saturday

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:44:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Cobb (forearm) will play catch from 90 feet Saturday, April 18, and he said the tendonitis in his right forearm is gone. He doesn't know when he'll resume throwing bullpen sessions.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) might not be ready to join the rotation for another month or so, and you may want to avoid him initially at FantasyScore. Matt Andriese ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) could continue to see starts in the rotation as a result, although he's a lukewarm fantasy pitching option in the interim.

Rays | Matt Andriese to start Sunday

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:14:20 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese will receive another start against the New York Yankees Sunday, April 19, according to manager Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Tip: Andriese ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has had a decent start to the season, gooing 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA and three strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings over one start. However, he won't light up the stat line with strikeouts, and he'll be a weak play at FantasyScore against the Yanks.

Rays | Evan Longoria the DH Friday

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:36:42 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (hip) is serving as the designated hitter and batting fourth in the lineup against New York Yankees SP Adam Warren Friday, April 17. 2B Logan Forsythe is starting at third base and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Longoria ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) was hit by a pitch and had to leave the game early Thursday. He hopes to return to third base Saturday. He should be a fine third base option for FantasyScore owners while going up against Warren and the Yanks.

Rays | Evan Longoria expects to play

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 09:03:33 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (hip) expects to play Friday, April 17, after being hit in the left hip by a pitch Thursday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: If Longoria ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) plays tonight, he should be a fine option for your FantasyScore lineups against New York Yankees starter Adam Warren.

Rays | Evan Longoria exits after HBP

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 21:13:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria (hip) suffered a bruised hip against Toronto Blue Jays after being hit by a pitch Thursday, April 16, and he is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Longoria ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is off to a slow start, and now that he is dealing with an injury, there is no reason to take a chance on him at FantasyScore until he has delivered a couple of solid performances at the plate.

Rays | Chris Archer dominates Blue Jays

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 19:58:48 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer allowed two hits and struck out 11 over seven shutout innings in a win over the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: Archer ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) is now 2-1 on the year with a 1.37 ERA, and he is showing signs of becoming an ace. Continue to start Archer at FantasyScore until his hot start comes to an end.

Rays | Kevin Kiermaier rips 8th extra base hit

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 17:27:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier hit his league-leading eighth extra-base hit of the season Thursday, April 16, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Kiermaier ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has four doubles, one triple and two home runs in 28 at-bats through nine games. In a ridiculously small sample-size, Kiermaier has an ISO of .429, which should start regressing toward his .187 mark of last season. Kiermaier is striking out nearly half as often as he did last season while also walking at a slightly higher rate. If those two trends continue, Kiermaier will be a valuable fantasy asset even after the power surge.

Rays | Jake McGee tosses an inning

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 14:43:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) pitched an inning in an extended spring game Thursday, April 16. Manager Kevin Cash said it went well and the organization will determine the next step in McGee's rehab Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: In McGee's absence, Brad Boxberger has fared well in the closer role, and there is a chance McGee doesn't return and immediately take over the ninth-inning job. McGee is worth stashing, and Boxberger remains a solid source for saves in all formats. Continue to check back for updates on McGee's recovery and return timeline.

Rays | Nick Franklin slowed

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 07:49:34 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 2B/SS Nick Franklin (oblique) has been slowed down, and he won't be ready for a rehab assignment this week as expected.

Fantasy Tip: Franklin will be a low-end 2B option on FantasyScore when he returns.

Rays | Alex Cobb remains limited

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 07:47:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Cobb (forearm) said he's fine, but he is still limited to playing catch.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb is probably a month away from returning at least. Monitor his progress, and he'll be a daily SP consideration on FantasyScore.

Rays | Jake McGee cleared to pitch

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 07:42:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Jake McGee (elbow) has been cleared to begin appearing in games Thursday, April 16, at extended spring training.

Fantasy Tip: McGee could be back in a couple weeks, but the team will likely ease him in. Brad Boxberger has been lights out with three saves and seven K's in 4 1/3 innings. McGee isn't guaranteed to be the closer, but he could figure in the mix in the near future.

Rays | Alex Colome set for second rehab start

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 22:36:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Colome (illness) is scheduled to make his second minor-league rehab appearance with Class A Advanced Charlotte Thursday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: Colome, who is making his way back from a bout with pneumonia, was in the running for fifth-starter duties before he fell ill in spring training. Itís uncertain if heíll get the chance when he is well, but at least Erasmo Ramirez has been horrible filling in.

Rays | Chris Archer looks to stay hot

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 21:46:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer is the probable starter for Thursday, April 16, against the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. He has allowed three earned runs or fewer in 14 straight road outings dating back to May 14. He is tied for the club record with former SP Jeremy Hellickson.

Fantasy Tip: Archer ($6,100; 12.2% of cap) has a favorable matchup against Torontoís Aaron Sanchez ($4,300; 8.6% of cap), who lasted just 3 ⅓ innings in his first-career start in Baltimore April 11. FantasyScore owners would be wise to target Archer until he cools off on the road.
