Rays | Desmond Jennings placed on DL

Sun, 03 May 2015 07:37:18 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, May 3, because of left knee bursitis. The team recalled OF Joey Butler from Triple-A Durham.

Fantasy Tip: Brandon Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should receive some starts with Jennings out of the lineup. He has four hits in his last four games but is only hitting .240 this season with one home run and seven RBI. Owners on FantasyScore probably will be able to find better options.

Cardinals | Joey Butler recalled

Fri, 09 May 2014 07:41:52 -0700

The St. Louis Cardinals recalled 1B/OF Joey Butler from Triple-A Memphis and optioned OF Randal Grichuk to Memphis.

Fantasy Tip: Butler was hitting .360 with four homers and 20 RBIs at Triple-A. He's a late bloomer at 28 and is worth picking up in NL-only leagues. However, he might not garner enough playing time to be more than a depth pickup. The move suggests Peter Bourjos will start seeing more playing time.
