(7/1/14) Rays outfielder/DH Matt Joyce is locked in at the plate. He followed up his two-homer performance Sunday at Baltimore with another home run Monday at N.Y. Yankees -- his sixth home run of the season. Joyce connected for a two-out, solo home run off David Phelps in the first inning Monday.
Joyce is batting .302 with a .373 on-base percentage, .585 slugging percentage, .958 OPS, three home runs, six doubles, 10 runs and 11 RBI in his last 16 games.

(6/29/14) Rays outfielder Matt Joyce exploded offensively Sunday, going 5 for 6 with two home runs and four RBI in his team's 12-7 win over the Orioles.
Joyce hit a big shot to center field in the third inning for his first home run since May 11. He didn't have to wait very long for his next home run, shooting one over the right-field fence for a two-run blast in the seventh inning. Joyce has endured his share of struggles at the plate after a nice April, but he now owns a .274/.360/.425 line with five home runs and 33 RBI in 226 at-bats.

(6/27/14) Rays designated hitter Matt Joyce did what he was designated to do Friday afternoon in Baltimore. He drove in two runs with a double and single to key a victory in Game 1 of a doubleheader. He also scored twice.
The big game snapped a slump in which Joyce managed just two hits in his last 15 at-bats.
|Matt Joyce goes 3 for 3 in loss |

(6/5/14) Rays outfielder Matt Joyce snapped out of an 0-for-12 funk in a big way Wednesday, as he reached base each time he came to the plate in a 5-4 loss to the Marlins.
Joyce went 3 for 3 with a double, before he was lifted for a pinch-hitter. He did not account for a run despite his three hits in the loss.
Joyce is now hitting .273 on the season, having raised his average more than 10 points in one game.
|Matt Joyce had another split-fueled season in 2013, hitting .246 with a .783 OPS against right-handed pitchers, and .164 with a .499 OPS against lefties. Joyce also put those numbers up with a great deal of streakiness -- he hit .290 with a .980 OPS or higher in May and August, while hitting .225 or lower in the other four months. Joyce has seen his overall batting average dip in each of the last three years (.277 in 2011, .241 in 2012, .235 in 2013), while he has hit an average of 17 home runs in each. Joyce is too erratic to start in standard leagues, and while he does have predictable splits, the good half of those should be more .300/1.050 than .246/.783. Leave Joyce to deeper Roto and single-league formats on Draft Day.
