Blue Jays | Jose Bautista placed on 15-day DL

The Toronto Blue Jays placed OF Jose Bautista (hip) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, Aug. 20, due to a bruised hip bone. He was pulled from the first game of a doubleheader against the New York Yankees. "He felt it a couple of days ago. He didn't think it was that big of a deal, so he was able to play," manager John Gibbons said. "Standing around in the outfield, all those pitches aggravated it, so he went to get checked out."

Fantasy Tip: With Bautista on the shelf, youngsters Anthony Gose and Kevin Pillar are expected to get a good look from the club. Gose is worth a look in AL-only play. It's uncertain how much time Bautista will be forced to miss at this point, and it's an unfortunate situation for fantasy owners in weekly leagues, since it is only Tuesday and he will be out the rest of the scoring period.
