Colby Rasmus homers, triples in loss

Colby Rasmus had himself a solid day at the plate Monday evening, going 2-for-4 with a triple and a solo home run to go with two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Rasmus has struggled this season since coming off of the DL, hitting just .154/.267/.385 . He's shown himself to be a good source of power in his career, but you can leave him on the wire until he starts hitting.

Colby Rasmus to resume rehab assignment

Colby Rasmus hopes to resume his minor league rehab assignment sometime this week. He had his assignment halted after a collision in a Single-A contest.

Fantasy Impact

Given he's aiming to start things back, Rasmus should be back in Tampa Bay by early May, if not sooner. He figures to take on an everyday role immediately upon his return, especially after the injury to Mallex Smith.

Colby Rasmus hits first home run of the Spring

In Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Rasmus went 2-for-3 with a home run and a single. He drove in three runs on the day.

Fantasy Impact

It was just three days ago that I remarked that it looked like Rasmus was still catching up to game speed. It looks like he is there now. If he has a great season he could net you 25 home runs and a reasonable average for a very low draft day price.

Colby Rasmus strikes out three times in loss

In Sunday's win against the Phillies, Rasmus, slotted third in the order struck out in each of his three plate appearances. Those were his first at-bats of the Spring.

Fantasy Impact

Even though it was only three at-bats, it shows that he has more work to do on his way back from injury. At points throughout his career he has been a productive player but he has also has his fair share of disastrous seasons. Don't draft him unless in a deep league but keep an eye on his season.

Colby Rasmus signs with Rays

Colby Rasmus has signed a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Rays. The deal includes a guaranteed salary around $5 million with incentive bonuses available.

Fantasy Impact

Rasmus struggled mightily with the Astros in 2016, posting a slash of only .206/.286/.355. He has power and has shown speed in the past, but he could be a part-time player in Tampa Bay. While this could help is averages, it would hurt his counting stats.
