Toronto Blue Jays RP Casey Janssen has been in a slump since he came down with food poisoning during the All-Star break. He has a 7.98 ERA in the second half since his vacation to the Dominican Republic, where he had a meal that made him sick. He was taking fluids through an IV before starting a stretch on July 20. Starting on that date, he would pitch in five of the Jays' next eight games. Janssen is currently working on mechanical and strategic changes to deal with his struggles.

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.
