Rays | Short outing for Drew Smyly

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 20:20:01 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly allowed three earned runs on eight hits and struck out five over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Minnesota Twins Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Smyly ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has struggled with efficiency lately, and he hasn't made it out of the fifth inning in three starts since returning from injury. He isn't worth using at FantasyScore right now.

Rays | Steven Souza able to swing a bat

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 15:38:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (hand) has been allowed to starting swinging a bat again after undergoing an X-ray on his broken hand. Souza said he hopes to be able to return to the team in the middle of September.

Fantasy Tip: Souza ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has struggled with injuries this season and is only hitting .214 this season. Owners on FantasyScore probably will be able to find better options to use when Souza returns to the lineup.

Rays | Rene Rivera out of the lineup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:39:11 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Thursday, Aug. 27. C J.P. Arencibia will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Arencibia recently joined the team but should not be a fantasy option at this time.

Rays | Brandon Guyer receives start

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:33:58 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer will start in right field against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Thursday, Aug. 27, and is batting first in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting .375 with three RBI this month and could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Rays | John Jaso will not start

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:27:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C John Jaso is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Thursday, Aug. 27. SS Tim Beckham will serve as the designated hitter and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jaso ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) could return to the lineup in the near future. Beckham ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting only .231 in limited playing time this season and is not a great option on Fantasy Score.

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 | James Loney to serve suspension

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:11:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B James Loney will not be in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Thursday, Aug. 27, because he is serving his one-game suspension. OF Daniel Nava will start at first base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Loney ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should return to the lineup after his suspension. Nava ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting only .194 this month and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Rays | Desmond Jennings placed on 15-day DL

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:44:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, Aug. 27. In a corresponding move, OF Joey Butler was recalled from Class AAA Durham.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) appeared in 10 games before requiring another stint on the disabled list. At this point, he is nothing more than a desperation stash in deep mixed leagues. Butler is a low-end outfield option for AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, and he stands as a potential value play in the right matchups for FantasyScore players.

Rays | Evan Longoria breaks power drought

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 22:27:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 3B Evan Longoria went 2-for-5 with a double and a solo home run Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Minnesota Twins. It was his first home run since Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Longo ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) entered the game with just one hit in the past 17 at-bats, dropping his average eight points since Aug. 20. He needs more games like this before you can trust him in FantasyScore again.

Rays | Desmond Jennings expected back soon

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 22:27:06 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) was out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Minnesota Twins due to a bruised left knee. He is considered day to day.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is likely to return soon, but avoid him in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of his injury.

Rays | Chris Archer strikes out a dozen

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 22:26:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer allowed four earned runs, nine hits and a walk while striking out 12 batters over six innings in a loss against the Minnesota Twins Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Archer ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) might have suffered the loss, but he has 10 or more strikeouts in three of the past four games. He has also hit double digits in whiffs nine times this season. Archer is a must-start in FantasyScore for his big-time strikeout totals.

Rays | Curt Casali lands on DL

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:33:29 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Curt Casali (hamstring) was placed on the disabled list Wednesday, Aug. 26, and the Rays called up C J.P. Arencibia from Class AAA Durham in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: With Casali on the shelf, expect the Rays to use a combination of Rene Rivera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Arencibia at catcher. Neither backstop is very valuable in any fantasy format, although Arencibia did manage 22 home runs and 65 RBI for Durham this year.

Rays | Chris Archer has owned Minnesota

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 09:20:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer is 4-0 with a 0.74 ERA in four career starts against the Minnesota Twins, who he faces Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Archer ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) has been one of the best all-around pitchers in the majors this year, and he should continue to be worth paying up for on FantasyScore against the Twinkies.

Rays | Desmond Jennings not expected Wednesday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 09:11:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings (knee) is not expected to play Wednesday, Aug. 26, after bruising his left knee Tuesday, Aug. 25. It is the same knee that required surgery for bursitis and caused him to miss 96 games this year.

Fantasy Tip: Because it's Jennings' ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) same knee that required surgery earlier this year, you have to wonder if he'll land back on the DL. Avoid him for now on FantasyScore. Brandon Guyer ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) would likely benefit the most if Jennings misses extended time again.

Rays | Curt Casali exits early

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 20:39:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Curt Casali (hamstring) left the game Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Minnesota Twins due to a strained left hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: Casali ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has emerged as a cheap source of power for FantasyScore players. Wait to see him officially return before pulling the trigger on him again.
