Description: Tampa Bay left fielder David DeJesus broke out of a slump by delivering three hits in Tuesday's win over Minnesota.
Insight: His first inning single ended an 0-for-24 drought. It's a start but DeJesus (.174, 0 HR, 3 RBI) still has a long way to go before we consider him a legitimate fantasy option.
 
Cold4/20/2014 7:12:00 PM
Description: After striking out in a pinch-hitting appearance Sunday against New York, Rays outfielder David DeJesus is now hitless in his last 24 at bats.
Insight: Of all players with at least 40 at bats, DeJesus' .119 batting average is the lowest in the major leagues. DeJesus may not have a roster spot much longer if this keeps up.
 
Cold4/19/2014 10:50:00 PM
Description: The Rays scored 16 runs Saturday against the Yankees, but left fielder David DeJesus went 0-for-6 with two strikeouts.
Insight: DeJesus had zero hits in his last 20 at-bats and is batting .122 this season. The 34-year-old outfielder has little power and little speed so there's no need to own him.
 
4/14/2014 3:15:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay left fielder David DeJesus is not in Monday's lineup.
Insight: Btandon Guyer will get another start. DeJesus is batting just .172 this season. Guyer is just 1-for-8 with one homer. Neither is fantasy worthy at this time.

Description: Tampa Bay left fielder David DeJesus is not in Monday's lineup.
Insight: Btandon Guyer will get another start. DeJesus is batting just .172 this season. Guyer is just 1-for-8 with one homer. Neither is fantasy worthy at this time.

4/1/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Rays left fielder David DeJesus (bruised foot) is not in the lineup Tuesday against Toronto, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: DeJesus could be available as a pinch hitter, however. Matt Joyce will start in left field and lead off, while Logan Forsythe will DH.
 
3/31/2014 8:01:00 PM
Description: Rays left fielder David DeJesus actually hurt his foot during Monday's game but X-rays came back negative, according to Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: He appeared to injure his arm diving back to first on a pick-off attempt, but it turns out he suffered a foot contusion. He's day-to-day.

Description: Rays left fielder David DeJesus left Monday's game against the Blue Jays.
Insight: He appeared to hurt his arm diving back to first on a pick-off attempt, accordingto Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times. If he has to miss time, it will lead to more playing time for Logan Forsythe and Sean Rodriguez.
 
11/5/2013 8:41:00 PM
Description: The Rays have brought back outfielder David DeJesus on a two-year contract. SOURCE: Marc Topkin, Tampa Bay Times
Insight: The deal is worth $10.5 million. Tampa Bay acquired DeJesus from the Nationals in late August. He ended up hitting .260 with two homers and 11 RBI over his final 35 games.
 
9/22/2013 10:28:00 AM
Description: Rays starter David DeJesus is 6-for-11 (.545) with one homer and six walks against former teammate Scott Feldman of the Orioles.
Insight: DeJesus and Feldman played together with the Cubs this season before ending up with different AL East teams. The veteran outfielder is hitting .267 in 27 games since joining Tampa Bay and is not a good fantasy option most days but he has a good matchup Sunday.
 
9/21/2013 9:47:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay left fielder David DeJesus notched four hits in Friday's marathon win over Baltimore.
Insight: The game set numerous major league records including the number of pitchers and players used. Since acquiring him from the Nationals in mid-August, DeJesus has hit .278 for the Rays with five RBI.
 
8/27/2013 11:09:00 AM
Description: Rays newly-acquired David DeJesus is just 2-for-17 (.118) against Angels starter C.J. Wilson.
Insight: DeJesus is batting a stunning .455 in his first three games with Tampa Bay, but this matchup doesn't bode well.
 
8/23/2013 8:05:00 PM
Description: The Rays acquired David DeJesus from the Nationals Friday for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Insight: DeJesus' tenure in Washington lasted all of four days. Matt Joyce, Desmond Jennings and Wil Myers are Tampa's starting outfielders so DeJesus will only be playing on a part-time basis.
 
8/22/2013 2:17:00 PM
Description: According to Ken Rosenthal, the Rays have claimed David DeJesus off waivers from the Nationals and are working toward a resolution.
Insight: The Nationals, who acquired DeJesus this week from the Cubs, can pull DeJesus off waivers, trade him or allow him to go to the Rays for nothing. DeJesus is hitting .248 with six homers and 27 RBI this season.
 
8/19/2013 8:44:00 PM
Description: The Cubs sent outfielder David DeJesus to the Nationals Monday for a player to be named later. SOURCE: Danny Knobler, CBS Sports
Insight: DeJesus was an everday player for the Cubs but that's unlikely to be the case in Washington where Bryce Harper, Jayson Werth and Denard Span are the starting outfielders. DeJesus (.250, 6 HR, 27 RBI in 84 games) has now played for four teams in his last four seasons.
 
7/24/2013 6:12:00 PM
