Rays | Desmond Jennings not leading off?

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 17:09:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings could be moved down to the heart of the order, according to Rays manager Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings has struggled to stay healthy, and his on-base skills fall short of the prototypical leadoff hitter's. A move to the middle of the order could hurt his runs scored potential, but a bump in RBI potential adequately offsets the dip. More well-rounded production would enhance the middle- to late-round pick's fantasy value.

Rays | Desmond Jennings healthy, lighter

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 09:46:46 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee), who is noticeably lighter this spring, said the knee injury that he dealt with last year is better. The team has talked of Jennings splitting time between center and left field when OF Kevin Kiermaier plays center field, and Jennings is on board with that plan.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings, 28, posted his lowest career batting average in 2014 (.244) while hitting 10 home runs and stealing 15 bases. His hype has surely fizzled, but he remains valuable for his combination of speed and power at the right price. He's more of a third or fourth outfielder in standard leagues.
