Rays | James Loney returning Friday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:26:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) will be activated from the disabled list before the game Friday, July 3. RP Preston Guilmet is being sent down to Class AAA Durham.

Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should at least return to the strong side of a platoon at first base to face right-handed pitchers, meaning Marc Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) could lose whatever little fantasy value he may have had. Loney has very little power to speak of and is batting-average dependent, making him a fantasy commodity in the very deep mixed leagues, at best.

Rays | James Loney rehab update

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 18:30:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) collected a pair of hits in the second game of his rehab assignment with Class A Charlotte Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) remains on pace to rejoin the parent club this weekend. FantasyScore owners should avoid him during the first game or two after he is activated so that he can prove that he is completely healthy.

Rays | James Loney could rehab later this week

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 14:25:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) could start a minor league rehab assignment later this week.

Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) could be back with the team shortly after his rehab assignment starts. He figures to return to a starting role at first base when he's ready to return, meaning Marc Krauss ($1,700, 3.4% of cap), likely isn't long for the organization. Neither Loney nor Krauss are worth a roster spot in shallow mixed leagues.

Rays | James Loney takes hacks

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 15:51:24 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) hit off a tee and played catch for the first time Wednesday, June 24, and he could return before the All-Star break, according to manager Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) doesn't hit for much power and is mainly a low-end target in very deep mixed and AL-only leagues. He's not the ideal FantasyScore target at first base when he's playing.

Rays | James Loney slowly progressing

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 13:40:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) took ground balls Monday, June 22, and he is scheduled to take dry swings later this week.

Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is a low-end first baseman in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, but outside those cavernous formats, he doesn't warrant a roster spot. FantasyScore players also should aim higher at first base most nights.

Rays | James Loney injury update

Tue, 26 May 2015 04:44:28 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) could miss four to six weeks due to a broken finger. Loney was placed on the 15-day disabled list over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: This would sideline Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) until around the end of June and quite possibly until the All-Star break. It's safe to drop Loney in regular-league lineups and avoid his selection in daily leagues for now.

Rays | James Loney to DL

Mon, 25 May 2015 12:57:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, May 25, with a broken finger. In corresponding moves, the Rays recalled SS Tim Beckham and 2B Jake Elmore from Class AAA Durham.

Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should be removed from further consideration for now. It is not known how long he will be out.

Rays | James Loney sprains finger

Mon, 25 May 2015 05:55:10 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney (finger) suffered a sprained left middle finger Sunday, May 24, while sliding against the Oakland Athletics. He was wearing a brace after the game and will be evaluated further Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is a roster-filling play most days and offers little in the way of power but contributes in average. Avoid him until more is known about his status.

Rays | James Loney sporting hot streak

Thu, 21 May 2015 06:12:49 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney is batting .458 (11-for-24) during a seven-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: The streak has also returned a run and five RBI from Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap). His lack of power makes him a low-end first base option in all formats, but FantasyScore players can find reliable production at a discount, if they're looking to spend up elsewhere. Loney sports a .293 batting average over his past 1242 at-bats and can help owners in deep mixed leagues in the category.
