Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings feeling better with knee injury
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings is feeling better about his left knee, which landed him on the disabled list, according to MLB.com.
Jennings, who is on the 15-day DL with bursitis in his knee, remains without a timetable for return.
"I talked to Des yesterday and I know he's itching to get back," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "He's very optimistic with the way he is feeling. I think before the DL stint, I didn't quite sense that optimism, but he's definitely feeling better now."
It is unclear if Jennings will go on a rehab assignment, but Cash indicated it would take him a game or two to get his timing back for how much time he's missed.
Rays' Desmond Jennings tests knee with running Sunday

|(5/11/15) Rays center fielder Desmond Jennings (knee) ran Sunday for the first time since hitting the disabled list, The Tampa Tribune reports.
Jennings, who is recovering from left knee bursitis, ran on a strip of grass outside Tropicana Field rather than on the AstroTurf inside the stadium. He said his knee felt fine.
Jennings has hit .222/.306/.238 with five stolen bases in 63 at-bats. He remains without a timetable for return.
Rays Desmond Jennings worried about playing on turf
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/8/15) Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings is on the 15-day disabled list with a knee injury. His return to the field will be impacted by Tampa Bay's playing surface.
"The issue is we play on the turf, and in his mind, and other players, it affects him," manager Kevin Cash said, per MLB Network Radio.
"We have to factor that in (to his return timetable)," he added. "Knees, ankles, back, hips, are all impacted by it, especially outfielders."
Rays don't have a timetable for Desmond Jennings' return
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/8/15) Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings told manager Kevin Cash his knee is feeling better, but Cash said there is still no timetable for Jennings' return from left knee bursitis.
“The swelling’s gone down,” Cash said, per The Tampa Tribune. “He’s seeing progress. That’s a great sign.”
|2014 summary: From a skills perspective, Desmond Jennings wasn't a much different player than he had been in either of his two previous seasons, yet he experienced a massive decrease in Fantasy value. Jennings was a top 40 outfielder in 2013, but last season, he barely cracked the top 60. A slight decline in power helped to deflate Jennings' value, but the weakness of the rest of the Rays' lineup played a role as well. Jennings scored 64 runs after having exceeded 80 in each of the preceding two years, and he drove in 36 runs after getting 47 and 54 RBI in 2012 and 2013, respectively. Though the declines were milder, Jennings also had his lowest batting average (.244) and stolen base total (15) since becoming a regular in 2011.|
Playing time status: Jennings missed the final 28 games of last season with a sore knee, but he should be ready for spring training. However, he has never played 140 games in a season, so a disabled list stint almost seems inevitable at some point in 2015.
2015 outlook: Jennings has yet to replicate the power display he showed in his 2011 half-season (10 home runs, nine doubles and four triples in 247 at-bats), so it is probably time to stop waiting for a repeat. The speed half of Jennings' power/speed combo already appears to be in decline, so there's little left to recommend him as an option for standard mixed league owners. He is now a deep league option for Head-to-Head owners, though Rotisserie owners could consider him as a late-rounder in standard mixed leagues.
