Rays | Desmond Jennings likely headed to DL
Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) appears to be headed to the 15-day disabled list with a left knee sprain. C Stephen Vogt would be the likely replacement on the roster. An announcement is expected to come late Monday, May 14, or Tuesday, May 15. Jennings hasn't started in seven games, but he pinch hit Friday, May 11, so a DL stint could only be backdated to Saturday, May 12.
Fantasy Tip: Brandon Guyer received two starts in left field last week, and he figures to benefit the most from a Jennings DL stint. Guyer, 26, has moderate power to all fields and made plenty of contact in the minors to provide you with a productive batting average. He also has double-digit theft potential over a full season.
Although the Rays haven't indicated anything, this could speed up the return to the majors for Hideki Matsui. He won't play the outfield, but he could be used to split time at DH with Luke Scott, especially against southpaws.
