|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|

|Desmond Jennings not improving, misses seventh straight |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/4/14) Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings was not in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, as he continues to deal with a knee injury.
Jennings will miss his seventh game in a row Thursday, and manager Joe Maddon told the Tampa Bay Times Wednesday the knee has not improved. Jennings has felt the same soreness since he was scratched Friday, and the expanded rosters have allowed the team to take his recovery slow.
|Desmond Jennings set a career high in home runs last season (with 14) and stole 20 bases, but his batting average seems to have stalled out in the .255 neighborhood, and hopes of Jennings developing into a 20-30 threat fade with every season. Jennings did top 30 doubles for the first time in his career, so those could be a sign of power on its way in his age-27 season, but there's still the matter of his batting average to consider: with a league-normal .295 BABIP producing that .252 average last season, things don't look up for Jennings getting near the .280 mark. And that would make him a sort of Austin Jackson-lite. There's still hope for this former top prospect to pick things up in the counting categories, but Jennings probably shouldn't go off draft boards until the middle rounds of most drafts.
