Rays | No offers extended to three Tampa hitters

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 15:12:35 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera, C John Jaso and OF Grady Sizemore were not extended qualifying offers from the team.

Fantasy Tip: Without catcher eligibility, Jaso's fantasy value plummets in all mixed leagues, and Sizemore is nothing more than an only-league option. Cabrera is likely to join his fourth team in three seasons, and while there is power-average potential, Cabrera doesn't project as a starting shortstop in the majority of fantasy leagues for the 2016 season.

Rays | May retain John Jaso or Grady Sizemore

Mon, 19 Oct 2015 00:42:36 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C John Jaso or OF Grady Sizemore could come back to the team in 2016, but team management indicates it will be one or the other and not both if it happens. While Jaso could command a two-year deal worth $10 million on the open market, Sizemore may get a deal around $1 million.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore could be a sleeper in AL-only leagues as he had six homers in 175 at-bats and a .746 on base plus slugging percentage this season.

Rays | John Jaso, Grady Sizemore sitting out

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 08:17:01 -0700

Tampa Bay C John Jaso and OF Grady Sizemore are not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price Saturday, Sept. 26. 3B Evan Longoria will serve as the designated hitter for the Rays. OF Brandon Guyer will start in left field and is batting first in the lineup. 3B Richie Shaffer will start at first base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Jaso ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) and Sizemore ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) are sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Guyer ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Shaffer ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) have posted decent numbers this month but neither player is a must-start option for owners.

Rays | Kevin Kiermaier riding pine vs. Baltimore

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 12:45:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 18. OF Grady Sizemore is starting in left field and batting fourth against Baltimore Orioles SP Tyler Wilson Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Kiermaier ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) owns a disappointing .654 OPS in September, and he doesn't move the fantasy needle enough to warrant a roster spot outside of AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. FantasyScore players shouldn't view Sizemore ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) as anything more than a flier Friday, as he owns a .226/.275/.339 slash line against right-handed pitchers this season.

Rays | Brandon Guyer batting second

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 12:14:43 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer is starting in left field and batting second against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Thursday, Sept. 17. OFs Mike Mahtook and Grady Sizemore are not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Typically, Mahtook ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) and Sizemore ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) have been splitting duties in left field against righties with Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) starting against left-handed pitchers. The timeshares limit all three to ownership in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues only. View Guyer as a potential source of cap relief at FantasyScore Thursday, though, as Tillman ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) owns a 7.97 ERA over his past seven starts.

Rays | Grady Sizemore playing left field

Sat, 12 Sep 2015 10:34:21 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Grady Sizemore will bat second and play left field against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Saturday, Sept. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is only batting .205 versus righties this season and is a career .167 (3-for-18) hitter against Porcello. Avoid using him in FantasyScore today.

Rays | Richie Shaffer starting in left field

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 14:21:04 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Richie Shaffer is starting in left field and batting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Lobstein Wednesday, Sept. 9. OFs Kevin Kiermaier and Grady Sizemore are not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid both Kiermaier ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) and Sizemore ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday, and it is worth noting Sizemore rarely plays against southpaws. Shaffer ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has been much better against righties this season, and at his cap hit, you should be able to do better at FantasyScore Wednesday. He is just 2-for-19 against lefties.

Rays | Grady Sizemore sitting out

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:22:34 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Grady Sizemore is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Joey Butler will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Butler was recently called up from the minor leagues and should not be a starting option at this point.

Rays | Desmond Jennings not in lineup

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 15:27:09 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. OF Grady Sizemore is playing left field and hitting second against Houston Astros SP Scott Feldman.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has five of his six home runs against right-handed pitching in 2015, but he's also hitting only .233 (40-for-172) against them. He remains a low-end sleeper outfield selection on FantasyScore.

Rays | Desmond Jennings returns to the lineup

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 14:46:23 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) is starting in left field and batting sixth against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Friday, Aug. 14. OF Grady Sizemore is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) hasn't played since Saturday, April 25, and he owned a .544 OPS over 72 plate appearances to start the season. You'll want to take a wait-and-see with him at FantasyScore, especially after such a lengthy absence. A speculative add in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues isn't out of the question, but in the majority of leagues, Jennings isn't worth a roster spot.
