Rays | Still no timetable for Desmond Jennings

Wed, 13 May 2015 13:54:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) said his knee is improving slowly, but there is still no date to resume playing.

Fantasy Tip: With Jennings ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) out, the Rays have been going with a committee of Joey Butler ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) and Brandon Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) in left field. They're low-end FantasyScore players well within flier territory, and most of the time, you'll want to aim higher. In the majority of seasonal leagues, all three should be left on the waiver wire.

Rays | Desmond Jennings begins running

Mon, 11 May 2015 06:45:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) ran for the first time Sunday, May 10, since landing on the disabled list. He said his knee felt fine.

Fantasy Tip: This is a good sign that his activity is ramping up, and he could begin hitting soon. Keep an eye on his progress. Brandon Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of your cap) is on the fringe for a low-end outfield spot on FantasyScore with a .294-2-11 line on the year.

Rays | No timetable for Desmond Jennings

Mon, 04 May 2015 09:08:29 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee), who was put on the 15-day disabled list over the weekend, doesn't have a timetable for his return, but manager Kevin Cash isn't ruling out Jennings coming off the DL when he's eligible May 11.

Fantasy Tip: With Jennings out for at least the next two weeks, Brandon Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should see regular playing time in the outfield. He'll be an under-the-radar daily option at FantasyScore, and he's hitting .273 (9-for-33) with a home run and six RBI since April 19.

Rays | Desmond Jennings placed on DL

Sun, 03 May 2015 07:37:18 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, May 3, because of left knee bursitis. The team recalled OF Joey Butler from Triple-A Durham.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should receive some starts with Jennings out of the lineup. He has four hits in his last four games but is only hitting .240 this season with one home run and seven RBI. Owners on FantasyScore probably will be able to find better options.

Rays | Desmond Jennings DL bound?

Sun, 03 May 2015 06:49:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) is expected to be placed on the disabled list Sunday, May 3, with the stint being retroactive to Tuesday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Brandon Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) to receive the majority of starts in Jennings' absence. Guyer is nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players, though. He is batting .240 this season and is just a .252 hitter through 357 career at-bats, and Guyer offers little pop upside. Jennings' appeal is limited to deep mixed and AL-only leagues at this point.

Rays | Desmond Jennings scratched late

Sat, 02 May 2015 16:34:46 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) was a late scratch Saturday, May 2, against the Baltimore Orioles. Scratching Jennings preserved the Rays' ability to backdate his potential move to the disabled list. Jennings was replaced by OF Brandon Guyer.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) could be in line for a temporary starting position if Jennings is placed on the DL. Guyer is an inconsistent player offensively, and he won't have much to offer FantasyScore owners.

Rays | Desmond Jennings will play Saturday

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:19:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) will play against the Baltimore Orioles Saturday, May 2, according to manager Kevin Cash. Cash also noted, going forward, Jennings will serve as the designated hitter and receive a few days off until his knee is fully recovered.

Fantasy Tip: Allow Jennings ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) to wet his feet in a game or two before utilizing him in FantasyScore contests, as he has missed five consecutive games. His seasonal value takes a hit with him only receiving spot starts for the foreseeable future. It was a hit his dwindling stock couldn't afford to take, too. Jennings should only be owned in deep mixed and AL-only formats.

Rays | Desmond Jennings still out

Fri, 01 May 2015 12:22:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) is not in the starting lineup again Friday, May 1. Jennings had his sore left knee examined by a doctor Thursday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Expect more news to surface concerning the severity of Jenning's ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) knee injury. He hasn't been placed on the disabled list yet, this will be the fifth consecutive game he has missed. When healthy, he wasn't really setting the world on fire, either. Continue to avoid Jennings in FantasyScore contests, as it appears the 28-year-old outfielder isn't going to live up to the hype he carried entering the league.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Guyer ($1,900, 3.8% of your cap) has been filling in, but he doesn't have FantasyScore appeal.
