Rays | Matt Moore close to rehab assignment

Wed, 27 May 2015 10:02:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore (elbow) will make another extended spring training start Thursday, May 28, and he's expected to start a rehab assignment by Tuesday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Moore should be stashed in all formats, as he's getting close to making his 2015 season debut after coming back from Tommy John surgery. He is more than a year removed from the procedure, too, which means he should have a relatively painless transition back to the rotation. He could be a big boost to your pitching staff in the second half.

Rays | Steven Souza out again Wednesday

Wed, 27 May 2015 09:55:53 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (wrist) is out of the starting lineup again Wednesday, May 27. OF Brandon Guyer is starting in right field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting a respectable .276 (29-for-105) with two home runs and 12 RBI, but he should be left off all FantasyScore rosters while facing King Felix and hitting at the bottom of the order.

Rays | Asdrubal Cabrera remains sidelined

Wed, 27 May 2015 09:54:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, May 27. 2B Nick Franklin is starting at the 6 and hitting sixth in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Ignore Franklin ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) everywhere.

Rays | David DeJesus batting cleanup

Wed, 27 May 2015 07:33:58 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF David DeJesus is batting fourth and playing left field against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Typically, batting fourth would be an added incentive to take a speculative flier on DeJesus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap). However, facing ace Felix Hernandez mitigates the fantasy boost, and DeJesus should be viewed as a high-risk option in FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Rays | Jake Elmore drives in four

Tue, 26 May 2015 22:19:58 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Jake Elmore went 2-for-5 with four RBI against the Seattle Mariners Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Elmore ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has picked up seven hits and six RBI over his last four games. Elmore is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore, but he could be a cheap option if he continues to produce at the plate.

Rays | Evan Longoria produces at plate

Tue, 26 May 2015 22:15:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria went 3-for-5 with two RBI against the Seattle Mariners Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Longoria ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is currently on a 10-game hitting streak and has nine RBI during that span. Longoria could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore on most nights.

Rays | Joey Butler hitting second

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:34:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Joey Butler will serve as the designated hitter and bat second in the order Tuesday, May 26, against the Seattle Mariners. OF Kevin Kiermaier was dropped to seventh in the order against Mariners LHP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has a .302 batting average on the season, but he's hitting just .200 against lefties. The reverse split can likely be blamed on a small 20-game sample, and Butler can be considered for use in GPP tournaments.

Rays | Asdrubal Cabrera remains out

Tue, 26 May 2015 14:27:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 26. He was doing running drills before the game. Cabrera could return Friday, May 29, but manager Kevin Cash said he could use him Tuesday off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Tim Beckham ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is starting at shortstop and hitting fifth in the lineup tonight. He's a low-end shortstop option at FantasyScore.

Rays | Steven Souza still out

Tue, 26 May 2015 13:50:27 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (wrist) remains out of the lineup again Tuesday, May 26. OF Brandon Guyer is starting in right field and hitting leadoff against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ, while 2B Jake Elmore is starting in left field and hitting sixth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Souza is doing baseball activities and has been feeling better, so he could return any day now. Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Elmore are both very weak FantasyScore picks against Happ tonight.

Rays | James Loney injury update

Tue, 26 May 2015 04:44:28 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) could miss four to six weeks due to a broken finger. Loney was placed on the 15-day disabled list over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: This would sideline Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) until around the end of June and quite possibly until the All-Star break. It's safe to drop Loney in regular-league lineups and avoid his selection in daily leagues for now.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi battles well in defeat

Tue, 26 May 2015 04:28:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi allowed two runs on five hits Monday, May 25, as his team lost 4-1 to the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has not been a disaster by any means this season. He has a 3-5 record, but Odorizzi has pitched at least six innings in all 10 of his starts and he sports a 2.31 ERA. Continue to play him as you see fit.

Rays | Asdrubal Cabrera sitting out

Mon, 25 May 2015 13:07:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. SS Tim Beckham will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is dealing with a groin injury and his return to the lineup is unknown at this point. Beckham ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has four hits over his last four games with two home runs and three RBI in that span. Beckham could be an option for owners if he receives more playing time.

Rays | Brandon Guyer leading off

Mon, 25 May 2015 13:07:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer is starting in right field Monday, May 25, and is batting first in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in five of his last six games and is hitting .362 this month. Guyer could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Rays | James Loney to DL

Mon, 25 May 2015 12:57:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 25, with a broken finger. In corresponding moves, the Rays recalled SS Tim Beckham and 2B Jake Elmore from Class AAA Durham.

Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should be removed from further consideration for now. It is not known how long he will be out.

Rays | Steven Souza not in the lineup

Mon, 25 May 2015 12:51:18 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (wrist) is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Souza's ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) return to the lineup is uncertain at this point, so owners should monitor the situation. Brandon Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will take his place in the starting lineup and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.
