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.

Casali is batting just .149 in 74 at-bats at Tropicana Field this season and is not a great fantasy option.
