Brandon Guyer paced the Rays offensive attack in Friday's loss to the Red Sox, going 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI.

Guyer was a late addition to the Rays lineup as Desmond Jennings was scratched minutes before the first pitch. He responded in a huge way though, and likely played his way into Saturday's lineup with the strong effort. For the season, he's now hitting .271/.342/.382 with three long balls and 24 RBI.
Aug 29 - 11:08 PM

Brandon Guyer went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Guyer had a run-scoring infield single in the Rays' four-run eighth inning, and he also doubled in the game. The two-hit night was his first multi-hit game in 10 days, as he'd seen his average drop to .265. With the two-hit game, Guyer's line is back up to .272/.333/.361.
Jul 29 - 10:15 PM

Brandon Guyer went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored as the Rays held on for a 4-3 win over the Royals on Tuesday.

Rays manager Joe Maddon hit Guyer in the third spot in his lineup, and the 28-year-old rewarded him with his best game in almost two weeks. Guyer doubled and scored the go-ahead run in the sixth inning, and he scored again in the eight as the Rays added to their lead. The outfielder has been getting steady playing time in recent weeks and is hitting .264/.313/.364 on the year.
Jul 8 - 11:16 PM

Brandon Guyer went 3-for-3 with three doubles, an RBI and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Orioles.

He was also hit by a pitch, reaching base in all four plate appearances. Guyer has swung a hot stick since coming off the disabled list, getting hits in six of eight games while batting .379. He started against a righty in this one but will continue to see most of his starts versus southpaws.
Jun 27 - 4:39 PM

Brandon Guyer went 2-for-3 with two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Astros.

Since being activated from the disabled list, Guyer has five hits and four runs scored in 14 at-bats in four games. The outfielder is hitting .280/.308/.360 overall this year.
Jun 22 - 5:19 PM

Rays activated OF Brandon Guyer from the 15-day disabled list.

Guyer missed about a month because of a fractured left thumb. He could get a good amount of playing time while David DeJesus recovers from a broken left hand and may be worth picking up in AL-only fantasy formats.
Jun 19 - 2:39 PM

Rays manager Joe Maddon said Tuesday that Brandon Guyer (thumb) is not close to being activated from the disabled list.

Guyer has played in three rehab games at Triple-A Durham and is making progress, but he needs more time. The outfielder fractured his thumb barely over three weeks ago.
Jun 18 - 9:16 AM

Brandon Guyer (thumb) will work out with Triple-A Durham Friday and if all goes well begin a rehab assignment there on Saturday.

Guyer would be used in the designated hitter spot Saturday before playing the outfield Sunday. The outfielder isn't even three weeks removed from a fractured thumb but appears close to rejoining the Rays.
Jun 13 - 2:49 PM

Brandon Guyer will have the cast removed from his fractured left thumb on Monday.

He'll begin his rehab soon and is hoping to rejoin the Rays before the end of the month. Guyer has hit .262/.286/.361 with one homer and six RBI over 65 plate appearances this season for the Rays.
Jun 8 - 12:27 PM

Rays placed OF Brandon Guyer on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured left thumb.

Guyer suffered the injury Sunday when he dove for a ball in the outfield. The Rays aren't sure yet how long he will be out. Alex Colome was recalled from Triple-A Durham in a corresponding 25-man roster move.
May 26 - 3:56 PM

Brandon Guyer went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer versus the Tigers on Friday.

It was Guyer's first homer, but he's hitting .302 in 42 at-bats. The Rays will play him primarily against lefties this season, leaving him with little AL-only value early on. He might be able to expand his role if he produces.
Mar 28 - 4:16 PM

Brandon Guyer doubled in both of his at-bats Thursday against the Pirates.

Both doubles today came off righties, but Guyer will likely get most of his starts against lefties for the Rays. Aided by the fact that he's out of options, he's expected to have a spot on the team's bench. He's 5-for-17 with three doubles and two walks this spring.
Mar 13 - 4:53 PM

Rays activated OF Brandon Guyer from the 60-day disabled list.

He's now back on the 40-man roster. Guyer was limited to just 98 games -- all at the minor league level -- due to injury this season. He'll compete for a bench job in spring training.
Mon, Nov 4, 2013 06:30:00 PM

Rays transferred OF Brandon Guyer from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Guyer has missed over a month with a fractured right middle finger, and this move effectively ends his season. Freddy Guzman was added to the 40-man roster in his place.
