News: Jennings (groin) is back in the Rays' lineup Tuesday against the Twins. Impact: A groin issue held Jennings to only one at-bat since the Rays took the field Friday, despite his availability as a pinch hitter. However, he'll man his typical spot in center field and second in the order.(RotoWire, )

News: Jennings, who was limited to one at-bat over the last three games because of a groin injury, is expected to return to the starting lineup Tuesday night. Impact: The 27-year-old outfielder has had a fairly solid start to the 2014 campaign, posting a .264/.391/.434 slash line with one homer and six doubles over 17 games.(RotoWire, )

News: Jennings (groin) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Yankees, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: With Jennings' groin injury limiting him only to pinch-hitting duty for the third straight game, Brandon Guyer will make the start in center field. Jennings was able to test out his groin by running during Sunday's pregame warmups, but he's not quite operating at full speed.(RotoWire, )

News: Jennings remains out of the Rays' lineup Saturday versus the Yankess, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Impact: After manning DH on Thursday, Jennings was held out of the lineup Friday but acted as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning, tallying an RBI single in his sole at-bat. However, another absence Saturday lends to the fact that an injury may be ailing him at the moment. The Rays haven't intimated one way or the other whether this is the case, but David DeJesus will again cover left field and bat leadoff.(RotoWire, )

Sat. Apr 19, 2014
News: Jennings is enduring a groin concern, which will confine him to pinch hit appearances Saturday and Sunday versus the Yankees, Marc Topkin of MLB.com reports. Impact: Jennings initially picked up the ailment Monday in Baltimore, resulting in two absences from the starting lineup in the interim. He's targeting a full return Tuesday against the Twins, but his lack of at-bats this weekend should induce owners to use other outfield options.(RotoWire, )

News: Jennings is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Yankees, according to Roger Mooney of The Tampa Tribune. Impact: The reason for Jennings' absence from the lineup is not certain, but he served as the DH Thursday out of the blue, so it's possible he is dealing with some type of setback. Either way, Jennings will be on the bench Friday, and David DeJesus will get the start in center field.(RotoWire, )

News: Jennings is getting the day from the starting lineup Saturday against the Reds, the Tampa Bay Times reports. Impact: Jennings is off to a .250/.362/.475 start. He's walking at a higher rate than his historical mark but is also striking out more (25 percent strikeout rate so far).(RotoWire, )
