Rays | Steven Souza out 4-6 weeks

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 08:12:05 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (hand) will miss four to six weeks after X-rays showed a fractured left hand. He was put on the 15-day disabled list and OF Mikie Mahtook was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move. Manager Kevin Cash said Mahtook and OF Brandon Guyer will receive the bulk of the playing time in Souza's absence.

Fantasy Tip: In most leagues, Souza should be dropped, since he's unlikely to have much of a fantasy impact for the rest of the season. Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) and Mahtook are deep sleepers on FantasyScore, and their fantasy value in deep leagues might be minimal, too, if they split playing time.

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 07:30:34 -0700

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 15:25:52 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is in a favorable lineup spot but doesn't have much offensive upside, and he's stuck in a tough matchup against Price. He's one to avoid for your daily lineups.

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 07:30:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer is playing center field and leading off against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen Sunday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has shown more pop against lefties this season, and he also boasts some speed. He checks out as a nice low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Sunday. Just note, Chen ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any of his last 10 starts.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting only .143 this month and should not be a top option for owners on FantasyScore.

Rays | Steven Souza out Monday

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 13:17:11 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (hand) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 6. OF Brandon Guyer is starting in right field and hitting seventh against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if Souza ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has a good chance of avoiding the DL, but he could be out several more days while his hand heals. Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has just two home runs and 16 RBI this year and remains limited offensively. He's a desperation sleeper pick as a source of salary cap relief.

Rays | Steven Souza out Thursday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:03:26 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is out of the lineup Thursday, July 2, with OF Brandon Guyer in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Souza ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is hitless in 21 at-bats the last seven days and should be avoided in his deep slide. Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has a .276-2-16 line this season, but he's really just a guy. Sorry for the weak pun, but avoid him on FantasyScore.
