Tampa Bay Rays news, rumors and injuries
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:00:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Daily players could take a speculative leap of faith on Arencibia, as he owns plenty of power potential. However, he also owns an uninspiring .255 career on-base percentage.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) was tagged with just his second loss since June 30. He is scheduled to make his next start against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 20:20:01 -0700
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.

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.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:39:11 -0700
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.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:33:58 -0700
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.
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.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:22:34 -0700
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.
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.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:44:14 -0700
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.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 22:27:37 -0700
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.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 22:27:06 -0700
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.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 22:26:37 -0700
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.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:33:29 -0700
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.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 09:20:50 -0700
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.
