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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
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.
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.

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.
Tue, 26 May 2015 04:28:23 -0700
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.
Mon, 25 May 2015 13:07:50 -0700
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.
Mon, 25 May 2015 13:07:06 -0700
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.

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