9/7/2014 6:59:00 PM
Description: Rays first baseman James Loney went 4-for-6 with a solo home run in a losing effort against the Orioles on Sunday.
Insight: Loney had a great August, hitting .304 with 13 RBI and nine runs, but Loney came into Sunday's contest hitting .167 in the first week of September. Sunday's 4-for-6 will certainly raise the old batting average. Loney is hitting .286 with eight home runs and 64 RBI this season.
 
8/28/2014 10:40:00 PM

Insight: Loney is 4-for-11 (.364) in his last three games and is hitting .299 with 11 RBI in August. Just don't expect much power from this first baseman as he has seven diggers on the year.

Description: Rays first baseman James Loney has batted .500 for his career against Baltimore right-hander Bud Norris.
Insight: Loney doesn't peovide much power, but he's always hit for a decent average and can pick it around the first base bag. He's batting .299 in 24 August games.

8/9/2014 10:59:00 AM
Description: Rays first baseman James Loney is 7-for-14 against Cubs starter Edwin Jackson.
Insight: Loney has hit safely in 15 of the past 18 games to raise his average to .291. Still, he's a just a singles-hitting first baseman.
 
7/22/2014 10:29:00 AM
Description: Rays first baseman James Loney is one of the rare hitters with a history of success versus Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright.
Insight: Loney is a career .462 hitter (12-for-26) with a 1.154 OPS against Wainwright. He's a non-power hitting first baseman, who can hit for a decent average and knock in runs when needed, but isn't an everyday fantasy option.
 
6/23/2014 10:20:00 AM
Description: Rays first baseman James Loney is jusy 1-for-12 (.083) against Pittsburgh right-hander Edinson Volquez.
Insight: Loney is a non-power hitting first baseman, who can hit for a decent average and knock in runs when needed, but he hasn't put up an OPS over .778 since being a part-timer in 2007. Today's matchup should be avoided.

Insight: He's been ridiculous over his last four games, providing nine hits over that span (.563 AVG). Loney, who has never been a big power guy, is on pace for 97 RBI this season. Fantasy owners in the market for a corner infielder could do a lot worse than Loney (.302, 1 HR, 12 RBI).

Description: Rays first baseman James Loney won't start Friday against the Rangers.
Insight: Though left-hander Joe Saunders is throwing for Texas, Loney actually hit the same against lefties as he did against right-handers last season (.299). Sean Rodriguez will get the start at first tonight with Loney likely to return on Saturday.

Insight: Loney experienced a career resurgence last year with the Rays (.299, 13 HR, 75 RBI in 158 games). In Colorado, he'd be replacing Todd Helton, who recently announced his retirement after 17 seasons.
