News: Joyce is out of the lineup Tuesday in Baltimore, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: Although Joyce has recorded barely any counting stats in the past week -- just one run -- he's reached base fairly often, tallying two hits, five walks, and two strikeouts in nine at-bats over the last four games. Nevertheless, Ben Zobrist will slide out to left field, while Desmond Jennings takes on center.(RotoWire, )

News: Joyce is not in the lineup Thursday against the Tigers, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports. Impact: Joyce has been sitting against left-handers, so with ex-teammate David Price on the mound Thursday, Joyce will cede left field duties to Brandon Guyer. After batting .309 in the month of July, Joyce has regressed a bit in August, going 13-for-52 (.250) at the dish with two doubles and a home run.(RotoWire, )

News: Joyce went 2-for-4 with a double and one run scored in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Yankees. Impact: Joyce continues to swing a hot bat in recent days, as the 30-year-old outfielder has now gone 8-for-23 with five walks and three extra-base hits over his last nine games. In addition to those totals, Joyce has chipped in five RBI and six runs during the same stretch.(RotoWire, )

News: Joyce is out of the lineup Thursday against the Rangers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Impact: After homering and scoring three runs a night earlier, Joyce will take a seat Thursday with lefty Robbie Ross on the mound for the Rays. Brandon Guyer starts in left field, while Evan Longoria handles DH duties for the Rays.(RotoWire, )

News: Joyce swatted a home run, drove in a pair of runs, and scored three of his own in Sunday's demolition of the Rangers. Impact: The Rays have extracted decent value from Joyce in using him as a semi-regular player this season, with the 29-year-old responding with a .281/.374/.431 line over 320 at-bats. He's noticed some a dropoff in his power production from his 19-homer peak back in 2011, but he still offers ample fantasy value when he sees a steady stream of right-handed pitching.(RotoWire, )
