Rays | Nick Franklin headed to minors

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 01:03:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 2B Nick Franklin was sent to Class AAA Durham on Monday, July 19, to make room for 1B Steve Pearce on the active roster.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a roster crunch more than anything else. It's also a surprise, because Franklin had a robust .313 batting average and .458 slugging percentage. Don't be surprised if Franklin is called back up sooner rather than later, but in the meantime he plays every day in the minors. Stash Franklin away in your leagues.

Rays | Oswaldo Arcia not starting Friday

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 12:53:22 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Oswaldo Arcia is not starting Friday, July 8, against the Boston Red Sox. 2B Nick Franklin is playing in left field and batting eighth against Red Sox SP Sean O'Sullivan.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a normal night off for Arcia, who is hitless in his last five games played. Franklin is hitting .297-1-11 in 15 contests, and that could be enough to merit a low-cost flyer in daily formats. Franklin does not play enough to merit inclusion in regular leagues.

Rays | Two Rays sit against lefty

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 06:30:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Logan Morrison and OF Corey Dickerson are out of the lineup Thursday, July 7, against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago. OF Steven Souza is hitting cleanup, and 2B Nick Franklin is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Souza has a .263-10-27 line and has upside at the cleanup spot. Franklin has a .303-1-11 line, and he's a low-end option against Santiago in DFS.

Rays | Brandon Guyer sitting vs. Angels

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 12:08:18 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 5. OF Nick Franklin is starting in left field and batting seventh against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tim Lincecum Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer has provided a modest fantasy return when healthy this season with a .257/.349/.455 slash line, 24 runs, seven home runs and 17 RBI through 46 games. He's a viable starter in deep mixed leagues. Franklin should be viewed as a desperation flier in daily contests Tuesday, and he's nothing more than a depth piece in cavernous mixed and AL-only seasonal setups.

Rays | Nick Franklin playing left field Sunday

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 07:34:18 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays INF/OF Nick Franklin is starting in left field and batting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Mike Pelfrey Sunday, July 3. OF Oswaldo Arcia is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Over the past week, Franklin is 5-for-19 with two doubles, a home run and nine RBI. He should be viewed as a productive source of cap relief in DFS.

Rays | Desmond Jennings has tight hamstring

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 18:29:19 -0700

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.

Rays | Oswaldo Arcia scratched

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 08:45:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Oswaldo Arcia (illness) was scratched Wednesday, June 29, due to illness. SS Nick Franklin is now hitting sixth and playing right field.

Fantasy Tip: Franklin is 2-for-3 (.667) with three RBI against lefties this season, which isn't enough of a sample size to warrant a play against David Price today.

Rays | Corey Dickerson out Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 12:26:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson (thumb) will miss another game Tuesday, June 28, due to a sore left thumb. 2B Nick Franklin will take Dickerson's designated hitter spot and bat eighth against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson shouldn't need the DL, but fantasy owners will miss his power production. Although he has a .209 batting average, Dickerson does have 13 home runs this season. Bench him for the time being until this is resolved. Franklin went 3-for-5 in the Monday, June 27, game and might be worth a DFS start.
