Guyer will bat leadoff and start in left field Tuesday night against Wei-Yin Chen and the Orioles, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports.

Guyer replaces Kevin Kiermaier in the outfield against southpaws, with Desmond Jennings sliding over to center to accommodate the slower of his two outfield mates. While Guyer could be a regular in the leadoff role against lefties, the Rays aren't scheduled to face another one until next Wednesday in Toronto.

Guyer (ankle) has a pair of multi-hit games since returning to the lineup from an ankle injury last week.

He'll likely break camp as platoon option, splitting time between the outfield and DH. Now 29 years old, Guyer's prospect status faded a few years ago, but the Rays may be able to maximize his value by using him predominantly against left-handed pitching.

Guyer (ankle) will serve as the designated hitter in one of the Rays' minor-league games Friday, Steve Carney of WDAE 620 AM reports.

Guyer has been tending to a mild ankle sprain the last few days, but it doesn't seem to be anything that will jeopardize his availability for Opening Day. If the Rays decide to keep five outfielders, Guyer should be viewed as the frontrunner to claim that final spot.

Guyer (sprained ankle) sat out Monday's exhibition game and hopes to get some at-bats in minor league camp later this week, the Tampa Bay Times' Marc Topkin reports.

Guyer is slated to get six-to-nine at-bats in minor-league camp Wednesday after being sidelined with a mild ankle sprain. He is a depth piece for the Rays, and therefore doesn't carry a ton of fantasy potential in standard mixed leagues.

Guyer (oblique/lat) has progressed to hitting off a tee Wednesday, the Tampa Tribune's R. Mooney reports.

Guyer is dealing with a mild oblique/lat strain, and it is unclear when he will be able to return to game action. Upon the start of the season, he figures to be the fourth or fifth outfielder, serving as a backup to Steve Souza in right field.

Guyer (oblique) is expected to return to the lineup March 15 or 16, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Guyer is only dealing with a minor strain in his oblique/lat, so he'll miss about a week of action. There hasn't been any indication that the injury could threaten his availability for Opening Day.
