Rays | Nick Franklin starting Saturday

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 13:55:53 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Nick Franklin will start at first base and hit eighth in the order Saturday, June 20, against the Cleveland Indians and RHP Corey Kluber. OF Jake Elmore comes out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Franklin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) continues to represent nothing more than the dismal return the Rays fetched in exchange for David Price in last season's trade with the Detroit Tigers and Seattle Mariners. Franklin should be kept far away from all FantasyScore lineup, especially when facing someone of Kluber's caliber.

Rays | Jake Elmore starting at first

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 15:11:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Jake Elmore is making another start at first base Tuesday, June 16, against the Washington Nationals. Elmore will hit eighth in the order against RHP Tanner Roark. 2B Nick Franklin comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Elmore ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has gone 5-for-16 in his last four games, and he's hitless in just one out of his past nine games. Elmore is much better suited to face lefties, and he should be avoided on FantasyScore while facing Roark.

Rays | David DeJesus out of the lineup

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 08:34:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF David DeJesus is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Sunday, June 14. OF Joey Butler will start in left field and is batting second, while 2B Nick Franklin will be the designated hitter and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: The Rays are facing a left-handed pitcher, which is likely why DeJesus ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is out of the lineup. Butler ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has at least one hit in 13 of his last 14 games and is a solid option on FantasyScore. Franklin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has recorded five hits in his last four games but is still batting only .143 this season and is not a great option.

Rays | Nick Franklin playing second base

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 12:50:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays INF Nick Franklin is in the starting lineup as the second baseman against the Chicago White Sox Saturday, June 13. 2B Logan Forsythe is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Franklin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) played shortstop Friday, June 12, but SS Asdrubral Cabrera ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is back in the lineup Saturday. Franklin is batting .135 entering play Saturday, with Cabrera hitting .208, so neither player is a viable FantasyScore option.

Rays | Logan Forsythe sitting out

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 09:23:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Logan Forsythe is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija Saturday, June 13. 2B Nick Franklin will start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Forsythe ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return soon. Franklin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has picked up four hits in his last three games but is batting only .135 on the season. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options.

Rays | Asdrubal Cabrera out of the lineup

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 12:57:41 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks Friday, June 12. 2B Nick Franklin is playing shortstop and batting seventh Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) dealt with an elbow injury last weekend, so perhaps this is a scheduled off day for the veteran. Make sure to avoid him in all fantasy formats Friday. Nick Franklin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has been playing regularly around the diamond for the Rays of late, but he should be viewed as a risky flier by FantasyScore players due to his uninspiring .102/.185/.184 slash line over 54 plate appearances this season.

Rays | Asdrubal Cabrera out with elbow injury

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 11:08:05 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera (elbow) is not in the starting lineup against the Seattle Mariners Sunday, June 7, after he hyperextended his elbow Saturday, June 6. INF Nick Franklin will play shortstop and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It is unknown how much time Cabrera ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will miss. Franklin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is just 3-for-36 this season and has one hit in his last 10 games. You can definitely find better options in FantasyScore this afternoon.
