Diamondbacks' Hank Conger: Will make spring debut Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger will catch and bat eighth in the order during the Diamondbacks' Cactus League game Tuesday against the Mariners, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

Conger's presence in the lineup for the first time during Cactus League play indicates that he's no longer bothered by the oblique injury, but he's already been ruled out of consideration for an Opening Day roster spot due to the extensive action he missed. He's expected to serve as organizational catching depth at Triple-A Reno after he was formally reassigned to minor-league camp Monday.

Diamondbacks' Hank Conger: Reassigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger (oblique) was reassigned to the Diamondbacks' minor-league camp Monday.

Conger will remain with the big club through the end of spring training, but with the Diamondbacks set to proceed with Chris Iannetta and Jeff Mathis as their two catchers, the 28-year-old will have to settle for duties with Triple-A Reno. The veteran backstop has been sidelined all spring with a strained right oblique and is still awaiting his Cactus League debut.

Diamondbacks' Hank Conger: Deals with strained oblique
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger is dealing with a strained right oblique and will sit out from spring training activities, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

It's an unfortunate break for Conger, who signed a minor league deal with the Diamondbacks earlier this month. The 29-year-old catcher hit just .194 in 49 games for Tampa Bay last season and is expected to serve as organizational depth for the D-Backs out of spring training.

Diamondbacks' Hank Conger: Signs minor league contract with Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger agreed to a minor league deal with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

The 29-year-old struggled with the Rays last season, hitting just .194/.265/.306 in 137 plate appearances. He didn't fare much better in Triple-A, either, as he slashed .165/.200/.303 across 116 plate appearances. He'll likely serve as organizational depth in 2017.

Rays' Hank Conger: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger was designated for assignment by the Rays on Monday.

Conger's disappointing performance with Tampa Bay has continued to regress at Triple-A Durham. After playing 30 games with Durham, he's built an awful .165/.200/.303 line, with every category being significantly worse than his MLB marks of .194/.265/.306.

Rays' Hank Conger: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays have optioned Conger to Triple-A Durham, Mark Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 28-year-old was hitting .194/.265/.306 for the Rays in 124 at-bats. This move leaves Curt Casali as the only catcher left on the Tampa Bay roster, so expect a subsequent move in the coming days. The Rays currently have J.P. Arencibia and Luke Maile on the Triple-A roster.

Rays' Hank Conger: Out of Sunday's lineup in Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger is out of the lineup for Sunday's game in Boston, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

Although he's been getting most of the playing time behind the plate, Conger never figured to start Sunday's game in Boston, as Curt Casali has three home runs in 11 career at-bats against Red Sox starter David Price.

Rays' Hank Conger: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger is out of the lineup Wednesday, 620 WDAE's Steve Carney reports.

Conger has been getting the slight edge in playing time at catcher for the Rays lately, but he is not starting enough to be viable in shallower formats. Curt Casali will start at catcher and hit ninth Wednesday.

Rays' Hank Conger: Out of Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger is out of Sunday's lineup against the Tigers, MLB.com's Bill Chastain reports.

The Rays' distribution of starts at the catcher spot remains unpredictable from game to game, so it's not exactly surprising that Conger will sit for the second day in a row. Conger should continue to split the playing time behind the plate with Curt Casali, rendering both players fairly useless outside of very deep leagues.

Rays' Hank Conger: Out of lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Conger will get the day off for Saturday's contest against Justin Verlander and the Tigers after starting the last two games. Curt Casali will catch and bat ninth in his place.

Rays' Hank Conger: Not in the lineup on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger is out of the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Conger has still been splitting time with fellow backstop Curt Casali. Casali will be in the lineup due to southpaw David Price starting on the mound for Boston. Conger has just four at-bats against left-handed pitching this season.

Rays' Hank Conger: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger is out of the lineup Sunday against the Astros, freelance Rays writer Roger Mooney reports.

Conger's hitting has improved after a miserable start to the season, but he still has yet to firmly wrest away the everyday job from Curt Casali. He'll be sitting out for the fourth time in six games Sunday.

June 6, 2016 06:32 PM
Rays' Hank Conger: Out of Monday's lineup against Diamondbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger is out of the lineup for Monday's game against Arizona, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Curt Casali will relieve Conger against left-handed starter Robbie Ray. Conger has been given just five plate appearances against left-handed pitching all year. Given his career .190/.312/.310 line against southpaws, there's no reason to expect that policy to change anytime soon.

Rays' Hank Conger: Picks up third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger will start at catcher and bat eighth in the order Sunday against the Twins, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Manager Kevin Cash is rewarding Conger for his excellent day at the dish Saturday (2-for-3 with a double and solo homer) with his third straight start. The playing time at catcher has varied pretty wildly this season between Conger and Curt Casali, so it's tough to say with much confidence that Conger will continue to dominate the starts for much longer.

Rays' Hank Conger: Getting day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees, freelance Rays writer Roger Mooney reports.

He's begun to encroach on Curt Casali's hold on the primary catching duties, as he had started the previous two games. Conger had his best offensive performance of the season Saturday, going 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and his first home run. While Casali will get the starting nod Sunday, the at-bats between the two catchers could be fairly even during the upcoming week.

Rays' Hank Conger: Launches first homer this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs against the Yankees on Saturday.

Conger had only two hits in his previous games, so he broke out in a big way with his first multi-hit game of the season. Conger is known for his power, and he should gain a bit more value if he has a few more games like this one in the coming weeks.

Rays' Hank Conger: Throws out first baserunner since May 2015 in Sunday loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger successfully threw out the Blue Jays' Ezequiel Carrera in the fifth inning of Sunday's 5-1 loss, ending a streak of 48 successful steal attempts against him, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

The veteran backstop had last cut down a runner on May 29, 2015, when he threw out the White Sox's J.B. Shuck. Conger, who went 1-for-3 in Sunday's game while hitting out of the ninth spot, also became the first Rays catcher to throw out a base stealer this season. He'd made his defense a priority in recent sessions with catching coach Jamie Nelson, and the extra work paid off on the inning-ending put-out at second base. However, the 28-year-old's struggles in a Rays uniform also extend to his performance at the plate. He's slashing just .172/.200/.172 over his first 29 at-bats, with no extra-base hits or homers and only a single RBI.

Rays' Hank Conger: Starting at catcher Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger will bat ninth and catch Wednesday against the Orioles, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Conger has continued to struggle with his defense, allowing all 11 runners to steal off him, but Curt Casali has yet to throw out a runner either. Conger's also struggling at the plate, hitting just .182 in 22 at-bats this season. Regardless, he'll replace Casali in the lineup Wednesday.

Rays' Hank Conger: Starting at catcher Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger will bat ninth and start behind the plate Wednesday against the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Confirming an earlier report, Conger will get the start behind the plate on Wednesday. Conger's defense will continue to be a problem and his bat has struggled too, giving the Rays few reasons to keep him in the lineup. He replaces Curt Casali on Wednesday.

April 20, 2016 02:59 PM
Rays' Hank Conger: Expected to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conger is expected to be in the starting lineup Wednesday versus the Red Sox as per manager Kevin Cash, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The veteran catcher has not seen the field since having five Indians steal on him last Thursday in a 6-0 loss. Conger has failed to throw out the last 44 would-be base stealers in a streak that dates back to his 2015 campaign in Houston, and is also slashing a .188/.188/.235 line through 16 at-bats in a Rays uniform this season.
