Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (hamstring) continues to take batting practice, and he started a running program Saturday, July 16.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings was batting just .202 prior to the injury, so you can afford to leave him on waivers until he returns and proves he can be productive.

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, July 4. RP Tyler Sturdevant is coming up from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: With Jennings on the sidelines, Oswaldo Arcia probably benefits the most in Tampa's outfield. He's hit .333 (9-for-27) with a homer and four RBI since his move to the Rays from the Twins. Arcia has nice power but whiffs often. He can be a good source of pop in deep mixed and AL-only leagues with regular playing time.

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (hamstring) will be out a few more days, but he's not a candidate to land on the disabled list at this point, according to manager Kevin Cash.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to keep Jennings out of your lineups until further notice. Nick Franklin is starting in left field tonight as a result. He had a big game the other day but otherwise has a very limited offensive ceiling. Franklin is a desperation daily selection as a deep sleeper.

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.

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson (thumb) and 1B Logan Morrison are out of the lineup Wednesday, June 29, with OF Desmond Jennings moving up to hit cleanup and 2B Tim Beckham hitting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings is hitting .261 this month, which is a step above his .202 average for the season. However, he's facing David Price today. He has upside at cleanup, but it's a risk. Beckham isn't worth consideration.

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk Monday, June 27, against the Boston Red Sox, pushing his average to .200.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings will be looking to push his average over .200 for the first time since April 26. He has RBIs in three straight games, a season high. He remains more of a No. 5 outfielders in AL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats until he improves his average dramatically.
