Rays OF's Kevin Kiermaier, David DeJesus sit against lefty Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(2:09 pm ET) 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 Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Guyer led off the game in the first with his solo shot, the first Ray to do so this season.

"Just trying to get my pitch to hit and not miss it, which I have been doing all year," Guyer said to MLB.com. "So I was just glad I was able to capitalize and help the team out early."

Guyer went 2 for 4, lifting his average to .250. He started the scoring with a first-inning leadoff homer, his first of the season. Guyer now has seven RBI on the year. 

"BG's been outstanding," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "We pick his spots when he plays. Obviously, he's in there against lefties. He's in there against some righties. But he really does a nice job.

"It's amazing how many times his barrel finds the ball. Gets big hits, gets us going with the leadoff home run. And then probably the next big hit was to add on two more runs to make it 5-0."
