Rays | Desmond Jennings working out in minors

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 15:23:55 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) will begin working out with Class A Charlotte Saturday, July 18, but there is no date for him to begin playing in rehab games.

Fantasy Tip: April 25 was the last time Jennings ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) played in a major league game, and his rehab assignment figures to be lengthy. It appears that Jennings won't have enough time to make a significant fantasy impact for the remainder of the 2015 season, so only continue stashing him in much deeper fantasy leagues.

Rays | Desmond Jennings pain-free

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 16:32:22 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) is pain-free but has yet to resume baseball activities.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) last played April 25 before having knee surgery. It doesn't look like he'll be back anytime soon, either. There's no reason to add him in shallow mixed leagues. Kevin Kiermaier ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) will continue to start in center in Desmond's absence. He's merely a low-end outfield option on FantasyScore, though.

Rays | Desmond Jennings to 60-day DL

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 10:47:47 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) has been moved to the 60-day disabled list with left knee bursitis.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is out indefinitely after having surgery on his knee, and there's no guarantee he'll return in the second half of the season and make a fantasy impact. Leave him to the waiver wire in shallow mixed formats.

Rays | Desmond Jennings to miss two months

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 22:18:39 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Tampa Bay Rays said Wednesday, June 10, that OF Desmond Jennings (knee) is expected to be sidelined eight weeks after undergoing knee surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings will be sidelined until at least mid-August, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see them keep him out until rosters expand Sept. 1.

Rays | No timetable for Desmond Jennings

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 15:40:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) had arthroscopic knee surgery Wednesday, June 10, to clean up the inflammation in the plica band that surrounds the left knee cap. The inflammation caused the band to compress on the knee, which caused the pain when Jennings tried to straighten his leg. There is still no timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Brandon Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Kevin Kiermaier ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) to continue receiving the majority of playing time in Jennings absence. Jennings is worth stashing in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, but the 28-year-old outfielder has failed to live up to the hype which accompanied him when he entered the league. It is unlikely Jennings tips the scales in the majority of leagues again in 2015.

Rays | Desmond Jennings having knee scoped

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 13:38:41 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) will have a scope on his knee Wednesday, June 10, and manager Kevin Cash said the best-case scenario is for Jennings to return in three to four weeks.

Fantasy Tip: For a player that relies a lot on his speed, this is an injury that could really affect Jennings once he's back. He's not worth holding in shallow mixed formats. Brandon Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Kevin Kiermaier ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) have really benefitted from increased playing time because of Jennings' injury, but they remain merely deep sleeper picks that provide cap relief.
