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.

Rays | Grady Sizemore optioned

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 21:39:36 -0700

The Tampa Bay Rays optioned OF Grady Sizemore to Class AAA Durham after the game Monday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore might be back at some point, but he is a shell of his former self and only worth using in FantasyScore when he makes a rare start at the big league level.

Rays | Grady Sizemore sitting out

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 07:13:53 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Grady Sizemore is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Saturday, July 18. OF Brandon Guyer will start in right field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting only .143 this month and should not be a top option for owners on FantasyScore.

Rays | Grady Sizemore batting second

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 08:28:02 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Grady Sizemore is playing right field and batting second against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Sunday, July 12.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is hitless over his past 17 plate appearances, so unless your rolling the dice on him breaking out of the funk Sunday, you'll want to look elsewhere at FantasyScore. There is upside at his cap hit, at least.

Rays | David DeJesus in two-hole

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 13:54:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF David DeJesus is starting in left field and hitting second against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Friday, July 10. OFs Joey Butler and Grady Sizemore are starting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Butler loses the most fantasy value with the additions of Sizemore and Jaso to the roster recently. He should only be owned now in the deepest of AL leagues. DeJesus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is much better against righties (.276 average, all five of his homers), but he hasn't fared very well at home (.216-2-7) this year. He remains a pretty unattractive FantasyScore commodity, even hitting high in the order.

Rays | Grady Sizemore starting in LF

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 08:44:39 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Grady Sizemore is starting in left field and hitting second against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Thursday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) will be rotated in and out of the lineup with the likes of David DeJesus and Joey Butler, with Butler appearing to be the odd-man out. The two-spot in the order is a nice position for daily value, but Sizemore has little upside and should be seen as merely a sleeper pick on FantasyScore as a source of salary cap relief.

Rays | Grady Sizemore sitting vs. Royals

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 15:05:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Grady Sizemore is not in the starting lineup against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, July 8.

Fantasy Tip: Over nine games since being recalled to Tampa, Sizemore ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has a .273/.273/.424 slash line with three runs, a home run and four RBI. He will likely enter into some kind of platoon in the outfield with David DeJesus ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) and Joey Butler ($3,500, 7.0% of cap). In seasonal formats, all three outfielders should be reserved for cavernous mixed and AL-only formats. FantasyScore players should be extremely picky when they utilize any of them, too.
