From -- thru  --


Rays | Steven Souza not in the lineup

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 15:55:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris Tuesday, July 26. OF Brandon Guyer will start in right field and is batting seventh, while OF Corey Dickerson will start in left field and is batting fourth.

Fantasy Tip: Sousa is not in the lineup because the team is not allowed to use a designated hitter in a National League stadium. Dickerson should be a decent starting option in some deeper mixed leagues, while Guyer likely only has value in AL-only leagues.

Rays | Two Rays players sitting out

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 10:39:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Logan Morrison and OF Brandon Guyer are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Hahn Sunday, July 24. 1B Steve Pearce will start at first base and is batting sixth. OF Corey Dickerson will start in left field, while OF Oswaldo Arcia will serve as the designated hitter and is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce has five hits one home run and four RBI since returning from the disabled list and should be a decent option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Arcia is only hitting .138 this month and should be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Rays | Brad Miller, Kevin Kiermaier sitting

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 09:19:34 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Brad Miller and OF Kevin Kiermaier are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Wednesday, July 20. SS Tim Beckham is starting at shortstop and is hitting seventh, while OF Brandon Guyer is in center field and is batting second.

Fantasy Tip: It's a normal day of rest for Miller and Kiermaier against a lefty, and the Rays are losing the DH again today in an NL park. Beckham isn't really worth your time in DFS despite hitting at Coors Field. He's batting .175 with three homers and eight RBI. Guyer certainly has some sleeper appeal hitting second, but keep in mind he's hit just .132 (5-for-38) with no homers, RBI or steals in July.

Rays | Brandon Guyer out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 13:59:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 19, against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood. OF Corey Dickerson is in left field again and will hit fourth.

Fantasy Tip: With just three hits in his last seven games, the Rays are likely going with the hotter hand at the plate. Dickerson's batting average (.223) is low, but his 13 homers and 35 RBI make him a strong DFS and regular-league candidate.

Rays | Oswaldo Arcia, Curt Casali playing

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 07:49:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Oswaldo Arcia and C Curt Casali are back in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Dylan Bundy Sunday, July 17. OF Brandon Guyer and C Luke Maile are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia is hitless in 21 at-bats this month, while Casali is batting just .169 through 166 at-bats this season. Neither player is worth using in any fantasy format.

Rays | Brandon Guyer returns to lineup Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 07:33:46 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer is back in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP David Price Sunday, July 10, hitting fourth and playing center field. OF Steven Souza is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer is just 3-for-25 (.120) during the month of July and has never faced Price in his career but may be worth considering as an inexpensive flier in DFS based on the fact that he's batting cleanup.

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 | Brandon Guyer sitting vs. Angels

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 12:08:18 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 5. OF Nick Franklin is starting in left field and batting seventh against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tim Lincecum Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer has provided a modest fantasy return when healthy this season with a .257/.349/.455 slash line, 24 runs, seven home runs and 17 RBI through 46 games. He's a viable starter in deep mixed leagues. Franklin should be viewed as a desperation flier in daily contests Tuesday, and he's nothing more than a depth piece in cavernous mixed and AL-only seasonal setups.

Rays | Desmond Jennings has tight hamstring

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 18:29:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (hamstring) left the game against the Detroit Tigers in the bottom of the third inning Thursday, June 30, due to tightness in his left hamstring. OF Brandon Guyer moved over from right field to replace him in center field, with INF/OF Nick Franklin entering the game to play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings doubled in his only at-bat before leaving and is considered day-to-day. The 29-year-old is batting just .202 with seven home runs and 19 RBI through 63 games this season.

Rays | Brandon Guyer swats homer in return

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 15:32:54 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer (hamstring) went 2-for-4 with his seventh home run of the season Wednesday, June 29, against the Boston Red Sox. He also added a double and finished the afternoon with one run scored and two runs driven in.

Fantasy Tip: In his first game off the disabled list, Guyer reminded fantasy owners that he can be a useful asset in AL-only leagues, and perhaps deep mixed formats as well. Considering the current state of Tampa Bay's decimated outfield, Guyer could be a decent addition, as he'll get regular playing time and has already enjoyed some success at the plate prior to getting hurt in the beginning of June. Keep him on your radar, at least.
