James Loney1BRays first baseman James Loney hit his first homer of the season.He did so in a 12-3 win over Toronto. Loney is hitting .286 with two RBIs this season. He is not much of a fantasy option.4/24/2015 9:43:00 PM

We have no news on whether this was regularly scheduled or from the forearm issue.4/24/2015 3:50:00 PM
James Loney1BRays first baseman James Loney (right oblique strain) is in Friday night's starting lineup.Loney comes back to a tough matchup, against R.A. Dickey. He's just a .182 hitter (6-for-33) against the knuckleballer. Loney has always hit for a decent average, but lacks the power fantasy owners like from the first base position, so his fantasy value is limited.4/24/2015 3:40:00 PM
