|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Rays first baseman James Loney went 4 for 5 at the plate in Tampa Bay's 11-3 win over the Twins on Sunday.
Loney collected two RBI singles in the third and sixth inning before smacking a double to right in the ninth off of J.R. Graham, scoring another run. Loney boosted his average to .273 with 10 RBI in 88 at-bats this season.
Rays to use James Loney as DH on Saturday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) Rays manager Kevin Cash moved James Loney as a designated hitter for Saturday's contest against Minnesota.
Cash told reporters he planned to give his regular first baseman a DH day at some point over the weekend, and felt Saturday was the best day to do so, per the Tampa Bay Times. Logan Forsythe moved to first base, with David DeJesus in left field.
Loney is hitting .241 (19 for 79) with three doubles, two homers and seven RBI this season.
Tampa Bay is favored (-110) at Minnesota, per VegasInsider.com.

Rays first baseman James Loney cranks second home run of 2015
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Rays first baseman James Loney went 1 for 3 at the plate in Tampa Bay's 4-2 loss to the Orioles on Sunday.
Loney did his damage in the second inning when he blasted an 0-2 pitch from Wei-Yin Chen over the right field wall for a solo home run, his second of the year.
Loney, who also walked once and struck out once, boosted his average to .286 with six RBI in 35 at-bats.
Rays' James Loney hits homer on Friday after return from DL
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/15) James Loney returned from the disable list on Friday and hit his first home run, a two-run shot, since Sept. 9 in the Rays' victory over the Blue Jays.
"It's fun being back out there again," Loney said. "I'm just glad it's over."
Loney's 15-day stint for a strained right oblique was his first-ever trip to the DL.
|2014 summary: Especially for a first baseman, James Loney is not a prolific power hitter or run producer, and in 2014, he was even less so than he had been in many of his past seasons. Loney clubbed just nine home runs with 69 RBI and 59 runs. Because he racks up plate appearances and makes frequent contact, Loney has just enough value to have appeal as a low-end option in standard mixed leagues, particularly in Rotisserie leagues where he can be used in the CI slot. Loney batted .290 over 600 at-bats, and that helped him to rank 21st among first basemen in Rotisserie value and 19th in Fantasy points.|
Playing time status: Loney is set to begin his third season as the Rays' starting first baseman.
2015 outlook: There are few signs, if any, suggesting that Loney is due for either improvement or decline. He will enter this season as the same marginal option for owners in standard mixed leagues that he has been for the past few seasons. While he could easily be passed over in those formats, Loney needs to be owned in all deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats.
