Rays | Desmond Jennings out Thursday

Thu, 26 May 2016 09:11:02 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 26. OF Corey Dickerson draws into the lineup in left field and is hitting seventh against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez. Also, SS Taylor Motter is playing third base and batting eighth with 3B Evan Longoria serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson and Motter have some pop, but neither is a strong choice in daily play today against Fernandez, who has a 3.02 ERA and 78 K's in just 53 2/3 innings.

Rays | Three Tampa regulars sitting

Mon, 23 May 2016 11:15:29 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Brad Miller and OFs Desmond Jennings and Corey Dickerson are not in the starting lineup Monday, May 23. SS Taylor Motter is at the 6 and is hitting seventh, while OF Brandon Guyer is starting in left field and batting leadoff against Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen.

Fantasy Tip: The Rays lose the DH playing in a National League park this week, so Dickerson could be out again tomorrow. Guyer has taken advantage of his increased opportunities this month and is batting .306 with three home runs and nine RBI. He's a fine value play in daily formats. Motter is a low-end shortstop option.

Rays | Desmond Jennings playing center field

Sun, 22 May 2016 07:18:21 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is batting seventh and playing center field against Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann Sunday, May 22. In addition, INF Tim Beckham is batting eighth and playing second base. OF Corey Dickerson is not in Sunday's lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings could receive a long look in center field after Kevin Kiermaier (hand) was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a fractured left hand. However, he is off to a slow start at the plate this season, batting just .186 with three home runs and 10 RBI through his first 102 at-bats. Beckham is just 8-for-46 (.174) and should be viewed as nothing more than a source of salary cap relief in daily fantasy games.

Rays | Brandon Guyer back in lineup Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 10:36:40 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer is back in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer Saturday, May 21, batting leadoff and playing left field, while OF Desmond Jennings receives the day off. In addition, C Curt Casali will start behind the plate and hit ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer is batting .299 with four home runs and 12 RBI through 87 at-bats and is worthy of consideration as a value play in DFS. Although Casali has five home runs and 14 RBI in 80 at-bats, he is batting just .188 and has struck out 36 times. Better catching options should be available for a similar price.

Rays | Desmond Jennings out Tuesday

Tue, 17 May 2016 13:28:08 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 17. OF Brandon Guyer is leading off against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman.

Fantasy Tip: This has not been a good season at all for Jennings, who is hitting .190 (4-for-21) this month and .188 against American League pitching. Guyer's bat is too hot to keep out of the lineup. He has eight hits in his last five games, including a pair of two-hit contests and a three-hit outing. Guyer carries solid fantasy value in the leadoff spot as well. Jennings has little value until his bat turns around.

Rays | Desmond Jennings records three RBI

Mon, 16 May 2016 21:30:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings went 3-for-5 with one home run and three RBI against the Toronto Blue Jays Monday, May 16.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings had only one hit in May before the game against the Blue Jays, so he has been on a cold streak. Owners probably should avoid Jennings until he is able to have a few productive games at the plate.

Rays | Desmond Jennings in two-hole

Fri, 13 May 2016 14:29:40 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is being moved up to No. 2 in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Rich Hill Friday, May 13. SS Brad Miller moves down to sixth with a lefty on the mound.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings is having a putrid season to this point with a .163/.232/.221 slash line and just one home run and two stolen bases. Until he shows more signs of life, avoid him in all fantasy leagues. He's really only an option to hold onto in AL leagues. Miller gives you some nice power and multipositional eligibility in deeper leagues off the waiver wire. He's one to fade against the lefty this evening, though.

Rays | Desmond Jennings back in action

Tue, 10 May 2016 15:29:27 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is back in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10, and batting sixth versus Seattle Mariners SP Wade Miley.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has been in a bad slump seemingly the whole season thus far, hence why he's been on the bench in three of the past four ballgames. With a putrid .169/.239/.229 line, he can't be trusted anywhere right now. If he continues to struggle, he'll become more accustomed to the bench, especially with Brandon Guyer swinging a solid bat.

Rays | Desmond Jennings on bench again

Mon, 09 May 2016 16:24:04 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 9. OF Brandon Guyer is starting in left field and batting seventh against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: It's the third time in four games he's been benched, and who can blame manager Kevin Cash? Jennings has delivered a woeful .169/.239/.229 slash line thus far. Guyer might have some potential, as he's out to a nice start with a .326/.466/.478 line of his own. He'd really only be someone to explore in AL-only leagues, though.

Rays | Desmond Jennings not in the lineup

Sun, 08 May 2016 10:56:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano Sunday, May 8. OF Corey Dickerson will start at left field. 1B Logan Morrison will serve as the designated hitter, while 1B Steve Pearce will start at first base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce has gone 5-for-12 with two home runs and four RBI over the last seven days and could be a decent starting option in most fantasy leagues.
