Rays' Desmond Jennings: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond Jennings is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Angels, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports.

Brandon Guyer will man left field and bat seventh against right-hander Cory Rasmus. Jennings has been in a miserable slump of late, recording just one hit in his last seven starts (25 at-bats).

Rays' Steven Souza: In Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Steven Souza (pectoral) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Angels, Bill Chastain of MLB.com reports.

Apparently the pectoral spasms that forced Souza from Friday's game have subsided, as he's set to man right field and bat fifth against right-hander Cory Rasmus. Souza has struck out 33 times in 83 at-bats this season, but he's made up for the whiffs to a large extent by hitting six home runs and slugging .506.

Rays' Chris Archer: Keeping approach consistent regardless of opponent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chris Archer is committed to keeping the same mind-set each time he takes the mound, regardless of opponent, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "I feel like every time we have a pre-game (meeting), we're talking about a good lineup," Archer said. "There's nothing to change or do anything different.

After his first four starts netted an 0-4 record and 7.32 ERA, the Tampa Bay Rays ' All-Star has allowed just two runs on six hits over his last 12.2 innings against the Orioles and Blue Jays, while fanning 14. Archer describes a third-inning homer he gave up to the Blue Jays' Jose Bautista in his last start as at turning point of sorts, as he switched to a more aggressive approach and retired the following 11 hitters. He plans on utilizing the same strategy in Friday's tilt against a potentially dangerous Angels lineup. "I definitely think however many outs I get, however many pitches I throw, I want to have that aggressive mentality," he said. "I don't want it have to be a run scored or a home run or whatever. I plan on doing it from Pitch 1 and not from Pitch 30 or 40 this time."

Rays' Curt Casali: Particularly proficient at extra-base hits in brief career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Curt Casali has notched an extra-base hit 62 percent of the time that he's hit safely since last June, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The young backstop is only tallying a .202 average over 228 career at-bats over parts of three seasons, but has made solid contact on an overwhelming majority of the hits he's managed since a June 2015 call-up. Casali has managed to hit for extra bases on 21 of the 34 instances in which he's avoided an out since that point, a span that includes as many homers (13) as singles. However, consistency in getting on base remains an area with plenty of room for improvement, as the 27-year-old readily admits. "Believe me, I'd like to be more consistent at the plate, maybe throw in a single instead of a strikeout or a pop fly," Casali said. "I want to be more consistent.

Rays' Enny Romero: Shelled in Wednesday appearance versus Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Romero didn't record an out while surrendering a hit, three earned runs and three walks in Wednesday's 8-5 victory over the Dodgers.

The 25-year-old got himself into a heap of trouble to start the eighth, walking Adrian Gonzalez and allowing a single to Justin Turner. Subsequent back-to-back free passes to Howie Kendrick and Chase Utley plated Gonzalez, and he then saw Xavier Cedeno walk Corey Seager and allow a sacrifice fly by Joc Pederson, which added another pair of runs to Romero's ledger. After a strong start to the season, the southpaw now has given up two hits, four earned runs and five walks over his last two appearances, while only getting two outs over that span. The struggles have shot Romero's ERA from 1.04 to a bloated 4.82.
