Rays | Several TB regulars return to lineup

Sun, 01 May 2016 07:24:10 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Brad Miller, OF/DH Corey Dickerson and 1B Logan Morrison are back in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman Sunday, May 1. In addition, C Hank Conger is starting behind the plate in place of Curt Casali, batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: The left-handed-hitting Miller, Dickerson and Morrison were rested for Saturday's game because the Rays were facing a left-handed pitcher. Although Miller is batting below .200 for the season, he is 6-for-13 with two doubles and a home run over the past week and is worth considering as a value play in daily fantasy games. Dickerson is hitless in his last 12 at-bats and Morrison is batting just .100 through his first 60 at-bats, so both players should be avoided this afternoon.

Rays | TB resting several regulars Saturday

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 11:20:39 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson, 1B Logan Morrison and SS Brad Miller are not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Saturday, April 30. 1B/OF Steve Pearce will bat cleanup and play first base, OF Desmond Jennings is batting sixth and playing left field and INF Tim Beckham is playing shortstop and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson, Morrison and Miller are not playing Saturday because the Rays are facing a left-handed pitcher. Pearce is batting .282 with a home run and five RBI in 39 at-bats this season and is worthy of consideration as a value play at first base for daily fantasy lineups but Jennings and Beckham are not recommended options today.

Rays | Brad Miller batting second

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 12:25:02 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Brad Miller is hitting second in the lineup Tuesday, April 26, against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez. 1B Logan Morrison, who had hit second, was dropped to sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Whether this is being done to jump-start Miller's bat is a mystery. Miller has a .158 average in the past week and is hitless in three at-bats against Jimenez. Morrison has a .111 mark in the last week but has three hits in as many at-bats against the Orioles pitcher. Right now, neither player carries much fantasy value.

Rays | Logan Morrison sitting out

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 12:41:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Logan Morrison is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Monday, April 25. OF Steve Pearce will start at first base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce has seen solid playing time over the last week and has at least one hit in four of his last five games. Pearce could be a sleeper option for some owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Rays | Three Rays regulars out

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 13:56:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier, 1B Logan Morrison and SS Brad Miller are not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. OF Brandon Guyer is in center field and hitting second, 1B Steve Pearce is starting at first and hitting sixth, and SS Tim Beckham is at the 6 and batting eighth against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathis doesn't instill fear in the opposition these days with decreased velocity and dominance. Guyer doesn't have much power but can be a rat on the basepaths as a deep daily sleeper. Pearce is another deep sleeper worth taking a look at, but he had only a .196 average and four home runs against lefties in 2015. Beckham is a desperation gamble.

Rays | Logan Morrison abandoning stance tweak

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 13:48:05 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Logan Morrison said he tweaked his batting stance during spring training but is now abandoning the change. He noted he felt good during batting practice Friday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Morrison is 2-for-40 without an extra-base hit to start the season, so he'll want to figure something out soon before he loses his job. Until he shows improvement at the dish, he is nothing more than a bench stash in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats. With that said, he could easily produce at a 20-homer pace through the rest of the season, so he remains a player to watch in deeper leagues.

Rays | Three Rays have day off

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 07:52:22 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson, 1B Logan Morrison and SS Brad Miller are out of the lineup Thursday, April 21. OF Brandon Guyer is hitting second, 1B Steve Pearce is cleaning up and SS Tim Beckham is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce is the only one of the three worth daily consideration. He faces David Price, but he could be worth a low-end start.

Rays | Logan Morrison won't be dropped

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 15:05:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Logan Morrison, who is 2-for-32 with 14 strikeouts to begin the year, is in no danger of being dropped down the batting order, according to manager Kevin Cash. "LoMo's gonna hit," Cash said.

Fantasy Tip: If this keeps up, something has got to give. Morrison should really only be owned in AL-only leagues at this point for his power stroke. Consider him a deep sleeper option in daily games tonight against Boston Red Sox starter Joe Kelly, who has been prone to yielding the long ball.

Rays | Corey Dickerson, Steven Souza Jr. out

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 07:42:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson and Steven Souza Jr. are not in the lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Sunday, April 17. OF Brandon Guyer is batting second and playing right field, while 1B/OF Logan Morrison is batting sixth and serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer may be worth considering as an inexpensive flier in daily fantasy games because of his career success versus southpaws. Morrison is 2-for-29 with 14 strikeouts to start the season and should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

Rays | Three Tampa regulars out

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 13:26:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson, 1B Logan Morrison and SS Brad Miller are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Chris Sale Friday, April 15. OF Steven Souza moves to designated hitter, OF Brandon Guyer is in right field and hitting second, 1B Steve Pearce is at first and hitting cleanup and SS Tim Beckham is starting at shortstop and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Morrison and Miller are both off to terrible starts, and you should consider benching them until they turn it around in traditional formats. Guyer and Pearce have favorable lineups spots tonight but are tough to rely on in daily formats while facing a tough lefty in Sale. Beckham should be ignored in most fantasy formats.
