Tampa Bay Rays SP Roberto Hernandez will throw three innings in a minor league game Saturday, March 30, which would put him on track to pitch next Thursday in the regular season.
Fantasy Tip: The club hasn't officially announced Hernandez the winner of the last rotation spot over Jeff Niemann, but the writing seems to be on the wall. Hernandez's control has been shaky in his career, but he's worth a look in deep AL leagues if he wins a rotation spot.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jeff Niemann allowed just two hits and no runs while striking out three and hitting one batting in six innings in his last spring outing Wednesday, March 27, as he competes with SP Roberto Hernandez for the final rotation spot.
Fantasy Tip: Injuries were responsible for a lost 2012 season. Don't forget about him, though, and he's worth a look in AL leagues if he wins the No. 5 rotation post.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Roberto Hernandez gave up 11 hits, nine runs and one walk while striking out none in six innings Tuesday, March 26.
Fantasy Tip: This outing may cost Hernandez a chance to win the No. 5 starting spot, depending on how Jeff Niemann fares in his outing tomorrow. Niemann had the upper hand on the rotation job before camp started, too.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Roberto Hernandez allowed only three hits (solo home run) in six innings Thursday, March 21, as he battles SP Jeff Niemann for the No. 5 rotation spot.
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez has always struggled with his command, even when he was known as Fausto Carmona, but the Rays have an uncanny ability of getting the most out of their players, even ones that every other club or fantasy player has written off. Niemann should have the leg up for the last rotation spot, and Hernandez may be better off being used as a long reliever or swingman.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Roberto Hernandez will compete for a spot in the team's starting rotation in spring training, but he could wind up pitching out of the bullpen at some point during the season. "We're not sure exactly what role we're going to use him in, but obviously he has a lot more experience starting than being used out of the bullpen, so we feel like there is a lot of upside with him, and with his groundball tendencies he'll fit in extremely well with our infield defense and what we're envisioning it to be in 2013," executive vice president of baseball Andrew Friedman said.
