Cold8/17/2013 4:03:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay designated hitter Luke Scott is headed to the disabled list.
Insight: Scott hasn't been in the lineup since Wednesday because of back spasms. He's had a brutal second half, hitting just .149 in 47 post All-Star at bats.
 
8/16/2013 5:32:00 PM
Description: Rays DH Luke Scott is dealing with back spasms, according to Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune.
Insight: Scott is a pitiful 4-for-36 (.111) with zero extra-base hits and 10 strikeouts over his last 15 games, and his sore back probably has something to do with it.
 
7/28/2013 12:08:00 PM
Description: Rays DH Luke Scott has dominated Yankees starter Phil Hughes in 16 previous at bats.
Insight: Scott is batting .500 against him with three extra base hits. The .271 average Scott is hitting for this season is a 42-point improvement from what he hit during the 2012 campaign (.229).
 
7/23/2013 11:17:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay DH Luke Scott is hitless in 11 at-bats versus Boston ace Jon lester.
Insight: Scott, who is one of the streakiest hitters in the league, just had a 13-game hitting streak snapped on Monday night and this poor matchup isn't likely to get him started on a new one. Avoid.
 
Hot7/21/2013 5:50:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay DH Luke Scott was 0-for-12 against Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey when he went deep off the knuckleballer in the sixth inning Sunday.
Insight: Scott, who is one of the streakiest hitters in the league, is batting .356 with 10 doubles, a triple, six homers, 18 RBI and nine walks over his last 27 games. He's so locked in at the plate that not even Dickey's knuckler could shut him down Sunday.
 
7/21/2013 11:40:00 AM
Description: Apparently Luke Scott can't hit the knuckleball. The Tampa Bay DH has never gotten a hit off of R.A. Dickey (0-for-10).
Insight: Noticing a theme here? The Rays have been a trainwreck whenever they've had to face Dickey (.196 AVG in 10 games). Expect more of the same on Sunday.
 
Hot7/13/2013 10:15:00 PM
Description: Rays DH Luke Scott is 28-for-75 (.373) with eight doubles, five homers, 16 RBI and eight walks over his last 23 games.
Insight: Scott was hitting .207 back on June 12, but he's up to .274 after his latest game in which he went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI. The DH is extremely streaky, so enjoy this before his next extended slump comes along.
 
6/26/2013 9:19:00 AM
Description: Rays DH Luke Scott is hitless against Blue Jays right-hander R.A. Dickey.
Insight: Scott (.241, 4 HR, 26 RBI) isn't alone in his frustration against the knuckle ball pitcher. Catcher Jose Molina is 0-for-8, so the bottom of the Rays lineup isn't likely to be productive on Wednesday afternoon.
 
6/20/2013 10:38:00 AM
Description: Rays DH Luke Scott has a hard time putting bat to ball when facing Yankees hurler Andy Pettitte. In 15 at-bats, he's managed just two hits while striking out seven times.
Insight: Scott is on a modest five-game hitting streak, but this in an unfavorable matchup.
 
6/13/2013 10:46:00 AM
Description: Rays DH Luke Scott has a nice matchup Thursday versus Ervin Santana of the Royals.
Insight: Scott is 8-for-21 (.381) with two round-trippers and six RBIs against Santana. If you've been holding onto him despite his injury and .207 average, today would be a good day to get him in the lineup.
 
6/11/2013 11:22:00 AM
Description: Rays DH Luke Scott is a career 0-for-11 with five strikeouts against Boston lefty Jon Lester.
Insight: When Scott can get 400-plus at-bats, he produced 25-to-30 home runs, but injuries have shortcircuited him over the past two seasons. He does most of his damage against right-handers and this matchup should be avoided.
 
6/10/2013 10:27:00 AM
Description: Rays DH Luke Scott is a career 7-for-18 with a pair of homers against Boston right-hander John Lackey.
Insight: When Scott can get 400-plus at-bats, he produced 25-to-30 home runs, but injuries have shortcircuited him over the past two seasons. He does most of his damage against right-handers and Lackey is a favorable matchup.
 
6/1/2013 9:22:00 AM
Description: Rays DH Luke Scott is 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs against Cleveland starter Ubaldo Jimenez.
Insight: Although Scott came back from injury with a hot bat, hitting .353 with a pair of home runs in his first seven games, he's cooled down and is batting just .194 over the past two weeks.
 
5/15/2013 11:56:00 AM
Description: Rays DH Luke Scott is hitless in 11 at-bats versus Boston left-hander Jon Lester.
Insight: Although Scott came back from injury with a hot bat, hitting .353 with a pair of home runs in his first seven games, he's cooled down and this matchup is extremely unfavorable.
