Rays' Desmond Jennings: Improving at the plate in June
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jennings, who tallied his second multi-hit game of June with a 2-for-4 performance in Sunday's loss to the Giants, is enjoying his best month of the season overall.

The oft-injured outfielder, who's been able to log 162 at-bats to date in 2016, has finally begun showing signs of breaking out of a season-long slump during June. Following Sunday's production, Jennings is now slashing .256/.360/.419 over 43 at-bats this month, along with two homers and five RBI. While his average still remains below the Mendoza Line at .191, it nevertheless represents a 23-point improvement over the figure he carried on May 30.

Rays' Desmond Jennings: Returns to lineup Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings (quadriceps) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Mariners.

Jennings had to be lifted early from Sunday's contest after experiencing some quad tightness, but the ailment was apparently minor enough that he could return without missing a game. He'll patrol center field and bat eighth against Seattle starter Taijuan Walker.

Rays' Desmond Jennings: Exits with quad tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jennings left Sunday's game due to quad tightness, freelance Tampa Bay writer Roger Mooney reports.

The oft-injured Jennings was replaced late in the game due to undisclosed reasons, but it now appears that the Rays have added some clarity to the situation. With a team day off Monday before the team hosts a three-game series against the Mariners, it made sense to take a conservative approach here. Jennings was 1-for-3 with a RBI prior to exiting.

Rays' Desmond Jennings: Thrives during series against Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jennings broke out of a season-long slump during the just-concluded three-game series versus the D-backs, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 29-year-old entered the three-game set hitting .171, but went 5-for-11 with two homers and three RBI over the series. He also turned in a number of strong defensive plays, much to the delight of his boss. "He broke out," manager Kevin Cash said. "He carried us in a lot of ways this series, for sure. We saw that electric player that we know is there. And good for him for doing it." Jennings had gone 8-for-70 with two homers and six RBI during the previous 27 games, and there was speculation that he could see a demotion to Triple-A Durham if his struggles persisted much longer. Although the recent success certainly earns him a momentary respite, Jennings will need to continue building on his performance to keep his grasp on a spot with the big league club secure.
