Rays | Nick Franklin receives start

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 16:41:15 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 2B Nick Franklin will be the starting second baseman for the Rays Monday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: Franklin ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has not recorded a hit in any of his last 10 games and is hitting only .069 this season. Owners on FantasyScore should look elsewhere for a starting option.

Rays | Erasmo Ramirez corrects mechanics

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 13:50:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez was opening his body too early during his delivery and pushing his release point further away from the plate through his first 12 appearances this season. However, the problem was acknowledge, and all seven of his strikeouts against the Baltimore Orioles Saturday, May 30, came after Rays C Rene Rivera helped Ramirez make the mechanical adjustment.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) remains a low-end starter in all fantasy formats. However, if the mechanical adjustments prove to have a lasting impact, his value could rise. Still, it is advised to take a wait-and-see approach.

Rays | Steven Souza Jr. homers again

Sun, 31 May 2015 19:38:10 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza Jr. went 3-for-5 with a home run, two doubles, three RBIs and two runs scored in a 9-5 win over the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, May 31, and he has homered in three straight games.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a poor average, Souza ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has a combination of power and speed that gives him intriguing upside at FantasyScore. He is a high-risk, high-reward play for sure, but for the price, he isn't the worst player to gamble on.

Rays | Rene Rivera sitting out

Sun, 31 May 2015 07:17:21 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays C Rene Rivera is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 31. C Bobby Wilson will be the starting catcher for the Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Rivera ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Wilson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting only .152 in his limited playing time this season and should not be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Rays | Nick Franklin will play Sunday

Sun, 31 May 2015 07:16:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Nick Franklin will be the starting second baseman against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Franklin ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has struggled at the plate this season and has not recorded a hit in his last nine games. Owners on FantasyScore probably should avoid Franklin until he is more successful at the plate.

Rays | Brandon Guyer streaking

Sat, 30 May 2015 18:45:25 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Brandon Guyer had a career-high three hits and extended his hitting streak to eight games in a 3-0 win over Baltimore Orioles Saturday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: Guyer ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has raised his average from .265 to .295 during the streak, but he doesn't have any RBIs and just two multi-hit games. He could be worth a flier if you are looking for serious cap relief at FantasyScore, but be aware that his upside is limited.

Rays | Tim Beckham injures hamstring

Sat, 30 May 2015 18:39:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Tim Beckham (hamstring) exited against the Baltimore Orioles with a right hamstring cramp Saturday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has been inconsistent in his first extended stay in the majors, and until he is healthy and has improved on his .213 average a bit, he needs to be avoided at FantasyScore.

Rays | Another solid start from Nathan Karns

Fri, 29 May 2015 20:38:25 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Nathan Karns allowed one hit and struck out seven over six scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, May 29, and he has allowed two runs or less in six straight starts.

Fantasy Tip: Karns ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has lowered his ERA from 5.32 to 3.32 over the stretch, and his steady performance makes him a safe source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Rays | Steven Souza returns in sixth spot

Fri, 29 May 2015 13:30:52 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza (wrist) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting sixth in the batting order against Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Souza ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) hasn't played since Sunday, and he's hitting only .223 (33-for-148) with seven home runs and 17 RBI for the Rays. His mix of speed and power always makes him worth a selection as a value play on FantasyScore, though. However, you may want to sit him out in this one in his return to action against Gonzalez, who righties are only hitting .227 (22-for-97) against this year.

Rays | Jake Elmore starting Friday

Fri, 29 May 2015 12:23:36 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays INF Jake Elmore will be the starting first baseman against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Elmore ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has picked up seven hits and six RBI over his last five games and is receiving regular playing time. Elmore could be an option for owners on FantasyScore looking to save some money.

Rays | Asdrubal Cabrera back in the lineup

Fri, 29 May 2015 12:22:53 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SS Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) is in the starting lineup Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has not been in the lineup for the past few games because of his injury. Cabrera is hitting only .213 on the season and is not a great option on FantasyScore at this time.

Rays | Matt Moore threw 3 innings, 46 pitches

Thu, 28 May 2015 15:41:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore (elbow) threw three innings and 46 pitches Thursday, May 28, in an extended spring training game. "Everything went as planned," according to the Rays' staff.

Fantasy Tip: Moore should be scooped up and stashed in the majority of leagues. FantasyScore owners may be inclined to give Moore a few starts to prove himself upon returning the majors, but he'll have tremendous upside while being discounted early on.
