Blue Jays | Devon Travis still has shoulder pain

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 12:39:06 -0700

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.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison says everything is OK

Sun, 10 May 2015 14:11:10 -0700

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.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro has knee issue

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 12:36:26 -0700

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.

Blue Jays | Comfortable with Jose Bautista at first base

Sat, 12 Jul 2014 07:41:29 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista is fine to play the outfield health wise, but the team is also comfortable playing him at first base, according to manager John Gibbons. "We may keep Bautista at first these three games, keep him off the turf. But he's good, though -- he's fine to play the outfield," Gibbons said. "Because he's running. He's running on the bases, so he's fine."

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion to return to first base

Sat, 05 Jul 2014 06:39:40 -0700

The experiment with 1B Edwin Encarnacion playing left field appears to be over. The Blue Jays no longer need him to play that position, as OF Jose Bautista (hamstring) can return to playing in the field. "We won't need it," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Friday morning of Encarnacion. "Jose should be in the next couple of days. With the left-hander going today it might buy him a couple of more days. He should be fine after that I would think."
