The latest Rajai Davis MLB and fantasy baseball news

The Toronto Blue Jays have placed OF Rajai Davis (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left oblique. In a corresponding move, SP Chad Jenkins has been called up from Double-A New Hampshire. Jenkins will start against the Boston Red Sox Sunday, May 12, in place of SP Brandon Morrow (neck), who had his next start pushed back to Wednesday, May 15, against the San Francisco Giants.
Fantasy Tip: It appears as though Jenkins will be sent back to the minors immediately after his start Sunday because the Blue Jays won't need a fifth starter again until May 18. Look for Toronto to add a position player, such as INF Jim Negrych or OF Anthony Gose, to their 25-man roster prior to their series against the Giants.

Once Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (ankle) is able to return to his normal spot in right field, 1B Adam Lind and OF Rajai Davis will split time as the designated hitter. Lind will face right-handed pitchers, while Davis will face left-handed pitchers. The duo were set to form a platoon earlier in the month, before injuries led to new alignments.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Rajai Davis will play right field, INF/OF Emilio Bonifacio will play center field and OF/3B Jose Bautista will play third base against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, April 14.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Rajai Davis received a rare start versus a right-handed pitcher Thursday, April 11, as he's mostly being used only against lefties this year. Davis had good success against Detroit Tigers SP Doug Fister, and it was an opportunity to put OF Jose Bautista in the designated hitter role to rest him. Davis had a stolen base and a single in Thursday's game, and he entered the game hitting .259 against righties and .289 against left-handers.
Fantasy Tip: Expect this trend to continue for Davis. He's definitely worth having on your roster in deep mixed leagues for his speed contributions. He's not a bad trade target later in the year, either, if you're lacking in thefts.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said OF Colby Rasmus will be given days off against certain left-handed pitchers. He added that he was impressed with the way OF Rajai Davis performed against lefties this spring.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said DH/1B Adam Lind is unlikely to start against left-handed pitchers to begin the season. OF Rajai Davis is a possibility to serve as a designated hitter against lefty starters.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said the team will keep a close eye on how 1B Adam Lind fares against left-handed pitching this spring, and they're currently debating whether they think he can be an everyday player. "We're looking at it," Gibbons said. "That's what we want to (evaluate), because we have some right-handed bats that could fill that hole if we're stronger that way." Lind hit .202 against lefties last year and hits .220 against them in his career. Gibbons downplayed the possibility that OF Colby Rasmus could be involved in a platoon at first base. INF Emilio Bonifacio and OF Rajai Davis are intriguing options off the bench against righties.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Rajai Davis will begin the season as the fourth outfielder and late-game pinch runner, meaning OF Anthony Gose will likely start at Triple-A Buffalo in 2013.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Melky Cabrera will be the obvious choice to start in left field next year. OF Rajai Davis is another option, but the team prefers to use him as the fourth outfielder and pinch-runner.
