Toronto Blue Jays RP Casey Janssen blew the save against the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, Aug. 23, and struggled in a tie game Sunday, Aug. 24. "He's definitely struggling right now," manager John Gibbons said after Sunday's 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay. "His game is location. He's definitely off with that. He's given up a lot of hits." Janssen has allowed 10 runs and 18 hits in 13 2/3 innings in 16 games since the All-Star break for an ERA of 6.58. He returned to action around eight pounds lighter after a bout with food poisoning in July, but it's unknown if the illness had any effect on his pitching. Gibbons believes Janssen is in need of a mechanical fix, but the coaching staff has yet to detect any mechanical flaws from Janssen.

Fantasy Tip: Although the bug sounds pretty nasty, Janssen shouldn't miss more than a game or two. If he is forced to miss any more time, Aaron Loup is the player to grab if you are streaming for saves.
