The Tampa Bay Rays placed OF Desmond Jennings (finger) on the 15-day disabled list Monday, Aug. 5. He missed the game Sunday, Aug. 4, due to what the team thought was a sprain of his left middle finger. Further tests by a hand specialist Monday revealed a small fracture.
Fantasy Tip: With Jennings out, and OFs Brandon Guyer and Rich Thompson hurt at Triple-A Durham, the team turns to Jason Bourgeois. He will likely serve as the fourth outfielder, perhaps splitting time with Sam Fuld. Matt Joyce and Wil Myers will continue to see regular playing time at the corner outfield spots.

Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon said OF Desmond Jennings (groin) may be dealing with a "bit of a sore groin," and the outfielder could sit out Saturday, May 11, as well as Friday, May 10. However, Maddon indicated the injury is minor.
Fantasy Tip: If it's just a couple days off, you shouldn't have anything to worry about. If not, Sam Fuld will be the player that benefits most. Fuld isn't flashy, but we've seen what he can do with steady playing before, and he could be a short-term boost in stolen bases if Jennings' injury winds up being worse than believed.
