Rays | James Loney returning Friday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:26:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) will be activated from the disabled list before the game Friday, July 3. RP Preston Guilmet is being sent down to Class AAA Durham.

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.

Rays | Matt Moore activated from DL

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:06:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore (elbow) was activated from the disabled list Thursday, July 2, to face the Cleveland Indians.

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.

Rays | Steven Souza out Thursday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:03:26 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is out of the lineup Thursday, July 2, with OF Brandon Guyer in his place.

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.

Rays | David DeJesus sitting Thursday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 08:54:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF David DeJesus is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. OF Grady Sizemore is serving as the designated hitter and batting fourth against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber.

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.

Rays | James Loney rehab update

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 18:30:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) collected a pair of hits in the second game of his rehab assignment with Class A Charlotte Wednesday, July 1.

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.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi rehab update

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:10:40 -0700

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.

Rays | Joey Butler returns to the lineup

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:11:16 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Joey Butler is playing left field and batting second against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Corrasco Wednesday, July 1.

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.

Rays | Erasmo Ramirez takes the loss

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:19:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez (groin) allowed one earned run, two hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a loss against the Cleveland Indians Tuesday, June 30.

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.

Rays | Evan Longoria's hit streak over

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:19:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria was hitless in four at-bats with a strikeout Tuesday, June 30, against the Cleveland Indians to snap a seven-game hitting streak.

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.

Rays | James Loney kicks off rehab stint

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:18:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) went 1-for-4 in the first game of his minor-league rehab stint with Class A Charlotte Tuesday, June 30.

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.

Rays | Joey Butler still riding pine

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:45:16 -0700

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.

Rays | Marc Krauss out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 12:10:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Marc Krauss is not in the lineup Tuesday, June 30, against the Cleveland Indians. 1B Jake Elmore is batting instead.

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.

Rays | Erasmo Ramirez to start Tuesday

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:16:10 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez (groin) will make his first start Tuesday, June 29, against the Cleveland Indians since leaving his start June 20 with a strained right groin.

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.

Rays | Kevin Kiermaier hitless in return

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:15:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier (leg) returned to the lineup Monday, June 29, against the Cleveland Indians, but he was hitless in four at-bats.

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.

Rays | Joey Butler a big part of plans

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:32:51 -0700

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.
