Latest Update James Loney went 3-for-4 with a run scored in the Rays victory against the Yankees on Tuesday at Tropicana Field. Tue Sep, 16, 11:08 PM
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.
Loney has put together yet another solid season. Obviously, he doesn't hit for much power, but he always maintains a solid average and posts decent run producing numbers. Barring a trade, he'll be back with the Rays next season.Analyst: David Kerr
With lefty Mark Buehrle on the mound for the Blue Jays, Loney will take a seat in favor of right-handed Sean Rodriguez. Nothing more than a routine match-up play.Analyst: Howard Bender
Home runs don't come very often for Loney, but he hit one on Tuesday night. He is now batting a solid .289 this year.Analyst: David Kerr
Loney took a Bud Norris pitch deep in the fourth inning for his eighth home run of the year. Loney is a statistically odd first baseman, as he does not hit for much power. However, he is hitting in the upper .280s and could be a solid player in your utility spot.Analyst: Colby Conway
