Blue Jays | Jose Bautista back as DH

Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (back, ear) returned to the lineup Friday, April 19, as the designated hitter. He said the back spasms he experienced earlier in the week were primarily an inconvenience. "It's more frustrating than scary," Bautista said. "I knew that I wasn't going to be hurt for a long time."

Fantasy Tip: Manager John Gibbons said Bautista will DH for the remainder of the three-game series in order to protect his back from the artificial playing surface at Rogers Centre. Bautista said he is feeling better than earlier in the week, and is pretty close to 100 percent.
