Rays | Tampa to play matchups in ninth

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 14:41:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays manager Kevin Cash said the team will "play matchup game, piecing it together" in the ninth inning with RP Alex Colome (biceps) injured. RPs Erasmo Ramirez, Matt Andriese and Xavier Cedeno are all likely to figure in.

Fantasy Tip: Colome's injury isn't serious and he could be back as soon as July 4, so don't invest heavily in Tampa's ninth-inning picture without him in the short term. Ramirez is likely your best bet if you're desperate for saves in the meantime, but temper your expectations.

Rays | Matt Andriese earns win in relief

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 21:46:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese worked 2 2/3 innings of scoreless relief against the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday, June 15, to pick up his sixth win of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Recently moved to the bullpen, Andriese didn't allow a hit in his first relief appearance and was rewarded with a win to move him to 6-0 on the year. You have to figure he'll get another crack at the rotation, and as such he's worth stashing in AL-only leagues.

Rays | Blake Snell tapped to start Thursday

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 13:21:15 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Blake Snell will be recalled from the minors for a start Thursday, June 16. SP Matt Andriese has been sent to the bullpen in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: From the sounds of this, Snell is up for the long haul. Andriese has been a decent starter so this move to the bullpen comes as a minor surprise. Pick up Snell in deeper leagues, and if you can stash Andriese on your bench go ahead and do it. There's a good chance Andriese may get another rotation chance.

Rays | Matt Andriese logs another quality start

Wed, 25 May 2016 21:33:05 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese worked his third quality start in four tries Wednesday, May 25, against the Miami Marlins, as he fired six innings of three-run ball, scattering eight hits and one walk. He also struck out six in the no-decision.

Fantasy Tip: While tonight's performance was nothing spectacular, Andriese is proving to have some value in deeper leagues. Since entering the rotation, he's contributed mostly fine work, and his six strikeouts this evening were a season high. Those who have an opening on the bench in AL-only leagues might want to consider adding him, while mixed league owners should keep him on their radar.

Sat, 14 May 2016 19:06:58 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese tossed his first career shutout, allowing two hits and striking out five in a 6-0 win over the Oakland Athletics Saturday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: Andriese has allowed one run and six hits combined in 16 innings in two starts this year, and he should stick in the rotation as long as he keeps pitching well. Grab him in deeper mixed and AL-only formats while you can.

Rays | Matt Andriese to stick in rotation

Mon, 09 May 2016 20:12:47 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese will remain in the rotation, as manager Kevin Cash said Monday, May 9, the plan is to keep him in the mix. They will decide soon whether they want to stay in order or where to drop him in.

Fantasy Tip: Andriese was solid in his debut, and he should be grabbed in AL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats. He is also a strong mid-tier DFS play if he can continue to pitch well.

Rays | Matt Andriese solid in debut

Sun, 08 May 2016 17:59:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese made his season debut Sunday, May 8, allowing one run on four hits while walking three and striking out three in a win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Andriese's outing will earn him any more starts, and there is no need to rush out to pick him up just yet.

Rays | Matt Andriese to pitch Sunday

Fri, 06 May 2016 17:10:39 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese will start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: Andriese went 3-5 with a 4.11 ERA in 25 games (eight starts) for the Rays during his rookie season last year and will be making his first MLB appearance of 2016 on Sunday. The 26-year-old right-hander is receiving the starting nod because SP Matt Moore was pushed back in the rotation one day due to the Angels' success this year against left-handed pitching. Andriese should be viewed as a risky play in all formats Sunday.

Rays | Matt Moore may be skipped

Wed, 04 May 2016 23:19:47 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore may have his start skipped Sunday, May 8, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Angels hit left-handers much better than right-handers. SP Matt Andriese or SP Erasmo Ramirez could make the start Sunday. If Moore makes the start, SP Blake Snell could come up to start Monday, May 9, or Tuesday, May 10, against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Moore is 1-3 with a 4.95 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP, and he has 37 K's in 36 1/3 innings. So he's really feast or famine right now, but he's a low-end consideration. Snell is the team's top pitching prospect and is worth the speculative waiver claim and stash.

Rays | Matt Andriese may start Saturday

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 09:24:30 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese might start for SP Erasmo Ramirez Saturday, April 23, against the New York Yankees. Ramirez pitching in relief on Thursday, April 21, caused the change.

Fantasy Tip: Andriese is an interesting pitcher to stream because he's proven he can be a big league starter. In fact, if he were on some other teams, he'd probably be on the major league pitching staff. Alas, he's just rotation depth in Tampa, but will have an opportunity on tap. The problem is, it's coming on the road at Yankee Stadium against an overdue offense. Owners can lay off him for this particular assignment, but he's someone to watch if a spot were to open up.
