Rays | Steven Souza out 4-6 weeks

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 08:12:05 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (hand) will miss four to six weeks after X-rays showed a fractured left hand. He was put on the 15-day disabled list and OF Mikie Mahtook was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move. Manager Kevin Cash said Mahtook and OF Brandon Guyer will receive the bulk of the playing time in Souza's absence.

Fantasy Tip: In most leagues, Souza should be dropped, since he's unlikely to have much of a fantasy impact for the rest of the season. Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) and Mahtook are deep sleepers on FantasyScore, and their fantasy value in deep leagues might be minimal, too, if they split playing time.

Rays | Mikie Mahtook starting Sunday

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 07:43:16 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Mikie Mahtook will start in left field and hit seventh in the order Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Boston Red Sox and LHP Wade Miley.

Fantasy Tip: Mahtook went 2-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI in his first game back in the majors. While he's not yet available on FantasyScore, Mahtook could become a serviceable option once he has a few more games under his belt.

Rays | John Jaso not in Friday lineup

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:30:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C John Jaso is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox left-handed SP Eduardo Rodriguez Friday, July 31. OF Joey Butler is serving as the designated hitter and batting fifth, while OF Mikie Mahtook was recalled from the minors and gets the start in left field while hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has cooled off considerably since a hot run in the first half of the season, and he's seeing inconsistent playing time, too, making him hard to rely on for fantasy purposes. Both he and Mahtook are weaker outfield plays, but Butler at least is a decent value consideration on FantasyScore. Mahtook should be ignored.

Rays | Mikie Mahtook batting eighth

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 13:16:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Mikie Mahtook is playing center field and batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Mahtook ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has two hits during his major league career and both cleared the fence. He should be viewed as a desperation flier by FantasyScore players, albeit one with some upside. There is nothing scary about the matchup with Danks, either.

Rays | Kevin Kiermaier out Tuesday

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 15:59:05 -0700

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 21:46:01 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Mikie Mahtook collected his first-career hit, a two-run home run, Wednesday, April 15, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Itís good to see the former Durham Bulls standout Mahtook ($1,600; 3.2% of cap) doing well. However, he isnít worth using in FantasyScore unless Brandon Guyer ($1,900; 3.8% of cap), Desmond Jennings ($2,800; 5.6% of cap), Kevin Kiermaier ($2,300; 4.6% of cap) or Steven Souza ($3,100; 6.2% of cap) go down with a long-term injury.
