Rays | Hank Conger sent down

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 05:43:40 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Hank Conger was optioned to Class AAA Durham Monday, July 11.

Rays | Brandon Guyer, Hank Conger resting

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 10:33:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer and C Hank Conger are not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Saturday, July 9. OF Oswaldo Arcia will bat eighth and start in right field, while C Curt Casali (head) bats ninth and starts behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia is batting .265 in 34 at-bats since joining the Rays but he is hitless in 16 at-bats over the past week, so he should be avoided in all formats. Casali is making his first appearance since leaving Wednesday's game with a head injury but his stat line for 2016 (.169-6-18) suggests that he's not worth using either.

Rays | Curt Casali exits with injury

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 18:53:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Curt Casali (undisclosed) left the game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the seventh inning Wednesday, July 6, after being hit by a back-swing earlier in the contest. He was replaced by C Hank Conger.

Fantasy Tip: Casali's injury appears to be minor in nature, given that he remained behind the plate for several innings after getting struck by a bat. He went 0-for-2 before leaving and is batting just .169 with six home runs and 18 RBI through 58 games this season.

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 10:09:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is back in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Saturday, July 2, batting sixth. In addition, C Curt Casali is batting ninth and starting behind the plate, with C Hank Conger receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Souza is making his first appearance since being activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 1, but he should be avoided in daily fantasy contests until he can make it through at least one full game without experiencing any setbacks. Casali is batting just .149 in 74 at-bats at Tropicana Field this season and is not a great fantasy option.

Rays | Desmond Jennings, Curt Casali out

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 10:12:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings and C Curt Casali are not in the starting lineup versus San Francisco Giants SP Albert Suarez Saturday, June 18. OF Mikie Mahtook will bat seventh and play center field, while C Hank Conger will bat ninth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Mahtook is hitting only .172 in 58 at-bats this season, including a .108 mark versus right-handed pitching, so he should be avoided this afternoon.
