Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) is not expected to be activated from the disabled list when he is eligible to return to action Thursday, Aug. 13. According to manager John Gibbons, Travis is still experiencing discomfort in his left shoulder and it is uncertain when he will be ready to begin a minor league rehab assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Travis ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is batting .304 with eight home runs and 35 RBIs through 62 games this season and should remain stashed in all formats. Ryan Goins ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will continue to see the bulk of the playing time at the keystone position for the Jays but doesn't have much value outside of AL-only and deep mixed leagues.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison told media everything is fine despite not making it past the fifth inning in three of his seven starts. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons also said there was nothing physical wrong with Hutchison.
Fantasy Tip: Hutchison ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has gotten off to a slow start this season but appears to be stabilizing his game. Still, keep an eye on his matchups and don't hesitate to go elsewhere if you suspect one matchup could give Hutchison trouble.

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro (knee) has a minor knee issue and should be fine within one or two days, according to manager John Gibbons.
Fantasy Tip: Navarro's at-bats may take a dive with Russell Martin behind the plate in Toronto, although his fantasy value may increase as a designated hitter. For now, Navarro is a late-round flyer in AL leagues.
