Rays | Two Rays players sitting out

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 10:39:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Logan Morrison and OF Brandon Guyer are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Hahn Sunday, July 24. 1B Steve Pearce will start at first base and is batting sixth. OF Corey Dickerson will start in left field, while OF Oswaldo Arcia will serve as the designated hitter and is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce has five hits one home run and four RBI since returning from the disabled list and should be a decent option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Arcia is only hitting .138 this month and should be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Rays | Oswaldo Arcia exits with elbow injury

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 06:23:49 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Oswaldo Arcia (elbow) sustained a mild strain in his right elbow after striking out swinging in the seventh inning and left the game against the Oakland Athletics Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia is best left to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues because of his inability to string together consistent production at the dish. Since joining Tampa Bay, he's been seeing enough playing time, but his seven runs, two home runs, seven RBI and .265/.339/.449 slash line don't stop the traffic.

Rays | Alex Colome implodes in ninth inning

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 06:13:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Alex Colome allowed two home runs and three total runs over 2/3 innings in a failed save bid to register a loss against the Oakland Athletics Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: It was the first blip on the radar for Colome, as the Tampa closer has been nearly flawless to date and now sits with a 2.34 ERA and 44 punchouts through 34 2/3 innings. Continue to view Colome as a mid-tier closer worth owning in all fantasy formats.

Rays | Steven Souza out of the lineup

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 15:15:15 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is out of the lineup Saturday, July 23, with OF Oswaldo Arcia hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Arcia is 2-for-26 (.077) this month, and he's not a good option against Kendall Graveman.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi shuts down A's

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 00:38:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi pitched eight scoreless frames against the Oakland Athletics on Friday, July 22. He allowed five hits, walked no one and struck out five. Odorizzi was not involved in the decision.

Fantasy Tip: After a couple of tough outings to start the month, Odorizzi has rebounded to make back-to-back excellent starts: 14 IP, 12 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 12 K's. Only an equally impressive performance from Oakland's Sean Manaea kept Odorizzi out of the win column on Friday. The right-hander should be owned in all AL-only and deep mixed leagues, and he's an interesting option in standard formats as well.

Rays | Logan Morrison battling tendinitis

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 17:19:03 -0700

Updating previous reports, Tampa Bay Rays 1B Logan Morrison (forearm) has been diagnosed with tendinitis in his forearm and received a shot, according to manager Kevin Cash. He could be available off the bench Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Consider Morrison to be day-to-day for now, with INF Steve Pearce likely to receive most of the playing time at first base in his absence. Morrison is batting .232 with 10 home runs and 31 RBI through 85 games and should only be owned in AL-only and cavernous mixed seasonal leagues.

Rays | Steve Pearce right back in the lineup

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:46:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Steve Pearce (hamstring) is starting at first base and batting fourth against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce rested his right hamstring as a precaution to avoid aggravating the injury Thursday, July 21, so it's good to see him right back in the lineup Friday. Pearce is 3-for-9 with two runs, a home run and four RBI since returning from the disabled list. He's picked up right where he left off before the injury, albeit while taking advantage of hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Rays | Steve Pearce could be dealt

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 07:55:29 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 2B Steve Pearce has received interest on the trade market, and there's a decent chance he is dealt before the trade deadline. The San Francisco Giants and Cleveland Indians are fits.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce has a .322-10-29 line in 183 at-bats, and he could be dealt into a part-time role. He should remain at least a single-universe option in fantasy.

Rays | Alex Colome remains perfect

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 00:08:11 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays RP Alex Colome threw his 21st save in as many chances Thursday, July 21, in a 7-3 win over the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Colome has been a lights-out closer when healthy, especially as Brad Boxberger has been out all season with injuries. Colome's chances for saves are somewhat limited due to Tampa Bay's woes, but he should still be played in all relevant formats.

Rays | Tim Beckham makes most of switch

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 23:59:44 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Tim Beckham was pressed into duty at first base Thursday, July 21, and he responded with a home run in a 7-3 win over the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: With Logan Morrison (forearm) sidelined and Steve Pearce due for a night off, the team had to do something. It did. Beckham has a .223 average but also has a .438 slugging percentage. He may not be quite ready for daily play, but his fantasy value could see a climb due to an extra position being added to his versatility.

Rays | Logan Morrison not DL-bound?

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 17:13:30 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Logan Morrison (wrist) is not expected to end up on the disabled list, according to manager Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Tip: Morrison has missed the past few games with a wrist issue, but it looks like he'll be able to escape a trip to the DL. While he remains sidelined, that could provide some extra at-bats for the likes of Tim Beckham and Oswaldo Arcia.

Rays | Steve Pearce out as precaution

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 16:43:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays 1B Steve Pearce (hamstring) said he's out of the starting lineup as a precaution Thursday, July 21, after he was "feeling" his hamstring due to fatigue. He expects to start Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce just returned from a hamstring injury, so the Rays are being cautious and easing him back into action. Because he was producing a nice .322/.393/.552 slash line with 10 homers and 29 RBI, he's expected to play most of the time at first base. That'll hurt Logan Morrison the most.

Rays | Logan Morrison's wrist hurting

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 15:37:06 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Logan Morrison (wrist) said his wrist started bothering him after the All-Star break and hasn't improved with a few days of rest.

Fantasy Tip: Aside from the wrist problems, Morrison was likely to lose valuable playing time anyway with Steve Pearce returning from the DL earlier this week. That combined with a weak .232 averrage, Morrison should only be owned for depth in AL-only leagues for his power (10 home runs).

Rays | Steve Pearce sitting out vs. A's

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 15:34:21 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Steve Pearce is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 21. SS Tim Beckham is starting at first base and is batting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce just came off the DL Tuesday, so the Rays are likely easing him back in. With a .322/.393/.552 slash line, 10 homers and 29 RBI, he plays in most deep mixed and AL leagues as long as he's playing regularly. Beckham had five hits last night to continue his hot July (.462), but he has just three homers and 10 RBI on the year and remains a desperation flier in DFS.

Rays | Corey Dickerson haunts old team

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 22:01:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Corey Dickerson had a three-hit game, including a triple, Wednesday, July 20, against the Colorado Rockies, his former organization. He lifted his career average to .360 at Coors Field.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson has listed his average 13 points since arriving at Coors Field thanks to a pair of three-hit games over the past two outings. He remains useful in AL-only fantasy leagues for his power potential, and he is a decent mid-tier DFS option.
