Rays | Steven Souza out of the lineup

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 15:15:15 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Arcia is 2-for-26 (.077) this month, and he's not a good option against Kendall Graveman.

Rays | Steven Souza out vs. Rockies

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 15:16:13 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 19. OF Oswaldo Arcia is starting in right field and is batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia has intriguing pop, but he's an all-or-nothing swinger with a .219 average between the Twins and Rays in 48 games. Consider him a deeper sleeper as a boom-or-bust DFS pick tonight with a little more appeal because he's playing at Coors Field. Souza is likely receiving a normal day of rest.

Rays | Oswaldo Arcia, Curt Casali playing

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 07:49:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Oswaldo Arcia and C Curt Casali are back in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Dylan Bundy Sunday, July 17. OF Brandon Guyer and C Luke Maile are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia is hitless in 21 at-bats this month, while Casali is batting just .169 through 166 at-bats this season. Neither player is worth using in any fantasy format.

Rays | Brandon Guyer, Hank Conger resting

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 10:33:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer and C Hank Conger are not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Saturday, July 9. OF Oswaldo Arcia will bat eighth and start in right field, while C Curt Casali (head) bats ninth and starts behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia is batting .265 in 34 at-bats since joining the Rays but he is hitless in 16 at-bats over the past week, so he should be avoided in all formats. Casali is making his first appearance since leaving Wednesday's game with a head injury but his stat line for 2016 (.169-6-18) suggests that he's not worth using either.

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 | No Oswaldo Arcia in Tampa lineup

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 12:08:26 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Oswaldo Arcia is not in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia is 9-for-31 with two doubles and a home run over 10 games since joining the Rays. He has been receiving enough playing time to move the needle in deep mixed leagues, especially in the power department. Remember, he hit 34 home runs and drove in 100 runs through his first 200 games in the majors.

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 | Corey Dickerson, Oswaldo Arcia return

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 12:22:29 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson (thumb) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting sixth against Detroit Tigers SP Jordan Zimmermann Thursday, June 30. Also, OF Oswaldo Arcia (illness) is back as the designated hitter and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson had been dealing with a thumb ailment recently but looks good to go. Both he and Arcia are similar players; a lot of power but swing and miss often. For that reason they are both hard to rely on regularly in mixed leagues, but their power is intriguing. They are all-or-nothing plays in daily formats. .

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 | Oswaldo Arcia fitting in nicely

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 21:11:42 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Oswaldo Arcia went 3-for-5 with a walk, three runs scored and two RBIs Monday, June 27, against the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia has back-to-back three-hit games, as he is enjoying his time with the Rays so far. He is worth scooping up in AL-only fantasy leagues if he is still available on the waiver wire.
