Latest Update Desmond Jennings is unlikely to play again this season. Sun Sep, 07, 12:15 PM
Has great speed and is also a solid hitter with good gap power. Displays some patience at the dish. Can also run down a ton of fly balls in the outfield. Is an adept base-stealer.
Flaws: : Doesn't have a great amount of home-run power, and he strikes out a bit too much for a top-of-the-order hitter. Therefore, he must learn where he profiles best in the lineup.
That is a huge bummer for his fantasy owners. He is dealing with knee injury that is a lot more serious than they first reported. Feel free to drop him in re-draft leagues.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Well, the kid's got moxie and you gotta love that, right? After now seven-straight games of riding the pine due to knee soreness, Jennings refuses to quit. We can appreciate his desire to not go down like that, but fantasy owners shouldn't be holding out much hope. It's not like he was tearing the cover off the ball while healthy, was he?Analyst: Howard Bender
The Rays are in no need to rush Jennings back, so they'll keep him on the bench until he is back to 100-percent. Kevin Kiermaier will continue to play center field in his absence and continues to look like a solid plug-and-play option.Analyst: Howard Bender
So that would mean that he's seen no improvement. After missing the last six games due to the knee soreness, it doesn't appear as if Jennings is going to be coming back anytime soon. Manager Joe Maddon has stated that he won't bring back the center fielder until the injury has shown improvement and with the array of outfielders at his disposal, there doesn't seem to be much reason to. Chalk it up to yet another disappointing season from Desmond Jennings.Analyst: Howard Bender
