Latest Update James Loney had a big day at the plate going 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in the Ray's loss to the Tigers on Tuesday night.    Wed Aug, 20, 02:09 AM

Loney has now logged four multi-hit games over his last six contests, owning a .400 average with two home runs and eight RBI in that stretch. Although Loney is not your typical power-hitting first baseman, he has managed to own a respectable batting average (.288 BA) while driving in 59 RBI through 475 at-bast this season. He remains a nice complimentary piece for those in deep leagues looking for help in batting average, which is his most productive fantasy category. Analyst: Matthew Beck

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   Has a sweet swing from the left side and makes consistent contact. Knows how to work the count for his pitch and will take a free pass if he doesn't get it. Possesses a great glove and pretty good base-running acumen.
Flaws:  : Doesn't hit for as much power as he should (especially for a big first baseman), which hinders his overall value as an everyday player. Doesn't generate much extra-base power against left-handed pitchers.

    James Loney hits sixth home run
  • Loney has now gone 7-for-13 over his last three games, while logging one home run, five RBI and two runs scored in that stretch. Despite Friday's home run being just his sixth of the season, Loney has been able to maintain a solid batting average (.289) up to this point, making him a low-end option if in need of assistance in that area. Just don't expect much more beyond that. Analyst: Matthew Beck

    James Loney is not in the Rays starting lineup Friday
  • With the desire for an all right-handed lineup, Joe Maddon has opted for Sean Rodriguez to play first base instead of Loney. Just a temporary move.Analyst: Howard Bender

    Loney extends on-base streak to 22 games
  • It's a real shame that Loney doesn't offer much else in the fantasy world. He doesn't hit for power, he's not a big RBI machine, he doesn't hit in a spot conducive to a ton of runs scored and it's not like he's banging .300 every year. This is a nice streak he's put together for himself, but the overall help to your fantasy team is minimal.Analyst: Howard Bender
