Rays | Corey Dickerson could be primary DH

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 07:32:35 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson is expected to serve as the club's primary designated hitter if 1B James Loney is traded. OFs Brandon Jennings, Kevin Kiermaier and Steven Souza Jr. would play left field, center field and right field respectively, with OF Brandon Guyer serving as the fourth outfielder and a starting option versus left-handed pitching.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson hit .304 with 10 home runs and 31 RBIs in 65 games for the Rockies last season and said he would have no problem serving as a DH. He could fall to the middle rounds of drafts for AL-only and deep mixed leagues because of the move away from Coors Field.

Rays | Tampa Bay sitting five regulars vs. Jays

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 15:12:48 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OFs Kevin Kiermaier and Steven Souza, 1B James Loney and C J.P. Arencibia are not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Friday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: With the Tampa Bay lineup missing a number of key cogs, there isn't a lot to be excited about from the Rays Friday. FantasyScore players could target Evan Longoria ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) because of his .344/.395/.576 slash line against southpaws this season, but otherwise, you're likely betting fading the entire lineup.

Rays | Steven Souza rejoins the lineup

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 12:47:30 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (wrist) is starting in right field and batting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Friday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Souza ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) hasn't played since Saturday, Aug. 1, so expect him to need some time to shake off a little rust. He struggles in the batting average department but has 15 home runs over just 348 plate appearances. FantasyScore owners shouldn't worry about fading Souza Friday. Seasonal owners needed power, though, could take a flier on Souza in deep leagues.
