Rays | Jake Odorizzi scratched

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 13:09:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi (illness) will not make his scheduled start Tuesday, April 15. RP Brandon Gomes will start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: His flu-like symptoms apparently were too taxing for him to start on Tax Day. Gomes isn't a recommended fantasy play, especially for the possibility that Joe Maddon mixes and matches to fill innings tonight.

Rays | Matt Moore to have TJS, miss rest of year

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 21:03:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore (elbow) has decided to undergo Tommy John surgery, and he'll miss around a full year. The pain he felt during his throwing session Monday, April 14, made it clear to him that he needed to have the operation. Doctor James Andrews will do the procedure Tuesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Erik Bedard and Cesar Ramos are now rounding out the rotation thanks to the injuries to Moore and Alex Cobb (oblique). Bedard should be your first target in AL-only leagues for the long-term, but Enny Romero can be put high on the radar in those formats, as well, as he'll likely see some time in the rotation before long.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi questionable for Tuesday

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 19:50:26 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi (illness) experienced flu-like symptoms Monday, April 14, and he was sent back to the team hotel in Baltimore. He is tentatively scheduled to start Tuesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: If Odorizzi cannot make his scheduled start, Enny Romero is on standby ready to come up from Triple-A Durham. He was scratched Monday as a backup plan.

Rays | Chris Archer gets tattooed

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 19:49:48 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer allowed career highs of seven runs and 12 hits in just five innings of work Monday, April 14, in a loss against the Baltimore Orioles. He was able to salvage his stat line with six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Chalk it up as one poor outing. He remains a steady fantasy contributor worth using in most formats.

Rays | Matt Moore throws, but no decision made

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 14:05:20 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore (elbow) threw and did OK Monday, April 14, but no decision on whether he'll undergo surgery will be made today.

Fantasy Tip: It almost seems inevitable that Moore will have to undergo Tommy John surgery. Right now, the team is hoping he can avoid it through rehab, but that often turns out not to be the case. Stay tuned.
