|James Loney plates four in win over Yankees |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(4/19/14) Rays first baseman James Loney came up big at the plate Friday night against the Yankees.
Loney doubled in two runs in the fourth off starter Hidoki Kuroda and singled two more runs in the seventh off reliever Adam Warren to give his team the lead for good. He was also plunked eighth and finished 2 for 4 with four RBI in an 11-5 victory. He is hitting .235/.322/.392 with one home run and nine RBI in 51 at-bats to start the season.

(4/12/14) Rays first baseman James Loney provided the sole offense in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Reds, going 1 for 4 with a second-inning home run.
Loney's first home run of the season coupled with brilliant pitching by Alex Cobb delivered a win to the Rays Saturday, but Loney is still looking to get going at the plate. He has hit just .184/.273/.316 in 38 at-bats this season.
|James Loney out of lineup Friday against lefty |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(4/4/14) Rays first baseman James Loney will sit Friday for the first time this season. He has been given a day off against Texas left-hander Joe Saunders.
Loney has slumped a bit to start 2014. He has just one hit in his last 10 at-bats and has yet to produce an extra-base hit.
|James Loney blast adds to fine spring |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(3/22/14) First baseman James Loney revived his career last season after a poor 2013. He has taken that momentum and run with it for the Rays this spring.
He continued to pound the baseball Saturday against Baltimore with a two-run homer in the first inning off Ubaldo Jimenez. His 1-for-3 performance actually lowered his batting average to .424.
|James Loney had a career resurgence in 2013, hitting .299 with 13 home runs, 33 doubles, and three steals. While none of those were career highs, Loney bounced back from a down 2012 to be a pleasant surprise for many of his owners. Loney did cool off considerably after a hot start, batting just .276 in the second half of the season, after hitting .315 in the first. But overall, this was vintage Loney. The problem, however, is that first base is a very deep position, chock full of players who can equal Loney's average, but double his home runs and do laps around his counting stats. If Loney was a second baseman, he'd be a no-doubt Fantasy asset; but since he plays at a stacked position, he's going to have relevance as a cheap CI option in Roto formats, and possibly stretch his value into a bench spot in Head-to-Head leagues.
