Rays' David DeJesus goes 2 for 2 in loss
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Rays left fielder David DeJesus went 2 for 2 in Saturday's loss to Oakland. He walked once and continued his hot hitting.
DeJesus has two multi-hit games in the last three and four in his last seven. He lifted his average to .330.
Rays OF's Kevin Kiermaier, David DeJesus sit against lefty Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/22/15) With the Rays facing a left-hander on Friday, manager Kevin Cash has loaded his lineup with right-handed swingers.
Outfielders Kevin Kiermaier and David DeJesus are being held out of the lineup against the A's. Kiermaier had started nine straight games for the Rays, but will take a seat on Friday, despite the fact he actually has a higher batting average against lefties (.267) than righties (.232).
DeJesus meanwhile has been on a tear lately. He's batting an even .400 (10 for 25) over his current seven-game hitting streak. But he's been heavily shielded against southpaws this season, having just three at-bats against left-handed pitching.
Joey Butler will enter the lineup and bat fifth while playing left field. Brandon Guyer moves up to the leadoff spot and will play center field on Friday.

|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) Rays designated hitter David DeJesus hit a solo home run in the seventh inning of Thursday night's 3-0 win over the Athletics.
DeJesus went yard off of Jesse Chavez on the first pitch of the at-bat. For DeJesus, it's his fourth home run of the season. He finished the game 2 for 4 and also hit an RBI double.
"I'm feeling good," DeJesus said on his approach after the game, per MLB.com. "I'm just getting pitches and not trying to do too much with it."
DeJesus has now recorded a hit in seven consecutive games and has recorded 18 RBI for the year.
He now holds a slash line of .324/.367/.500.
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 DH David DeJesus goes deep in defeat to Twins
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) The light-hitting Rays have gotten some heavy hitting from designated hitter David DeJesus lately. And Friday night proved no exception.
DeJesus slugged his third home run of the year and second since May 8. His solo blast in the second inning gave his team a 1-0 lead it eventually squandered in a defeat to Minnesota.
The 35-year-old DeJesus has hit safely in eight of his last nine starts. He is 12-for-31 during that stretch and has upped his batting average from .241 to .301.
