Tampa Bay Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera, who is hitless in his last 14 at-bats, was dropped from third to seventh in the batting order Monday, May 4. OF David DeJesus, who is 0-for-17 lately, was dropped to fifth in the lineup. 1B James Loney has moved to the third spot.
Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) and DeJesus ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should be looked at as weaker FantasyScore plays tonight, even against a right-handed pitcher. Loney ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is a midrange first base play tonight while seeing a bump into the heart of the batting order.

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. OF David DeJesus is starting in left field and hitting leadoff against New York Yankees SP Chase Whitley.
Fantasy Tip: DeJesus ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has quietly hit .342 (13-for-38) with one home run and eight RBI for the Rays atop their lineup. He gives FantasyScore users a leadoff bat with extra at-bats, but he doesn't do a lot across the board to fill up the stat sheet. He's a middling outfield target for daily lineups, although he does have a good matchup tonight against Whitley.

Tampa Bay Rays OF David DeJesus and 1B Allan Dykstra are both in the starting lineup versus Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez Wednesday, April 8. DeJesus is leading off and serving as the designated hitter, while Dykstra is at first base and hitting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: DeJesus ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is dirt cheap at FantasyScore, but he hit only .251 last year against righties in 231 at-bats. Dykstra, who is making his major league debut, has plenty of home run upside, but he won't be available at FantasyScore.
