Blue Jays | Maicer Izturis has tightness in hamstring

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Maicer Izturis (hamstring) is out with tightness in his hamstring Monday, April 22, and 2B Emilio Bonifacio is starting in his place. Bonifacio hasn't played at the keystone since April 12.

Fantasy Tip: Izturis has taken over as the starting second baseman in Toronto because John Gibbons feels it is his natural position. Bonifacio has lost out on playing time with the return of Brett Lawrie (rib cage) to third base and his own defensive woes at the keystone. Bonifacio should still be on rosters in deep mixed leagues for his stolen base contributions, but those opportunities will be fewer and far between.
