Blue Jays | Roberto Osuna off limits Wednesday

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 08:01:41 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Roberto Osuna is unavailable Wednesday, July 27, along with RP Jesse Chavez. RP Jason Grilli and RP Joaquin Benoit will be called upon to protect late-inning leads.

Fantasy Tip: Grilli might have the upper hand. Benoit has a 5.18 ERA, while Grilli's ERA is 3.63 with a 1.33 WHIP and 50 K's in 34 2/3 innings. His K/9 is the highest it has been since his peak years with the Pittsburgh Pirates. If you have daily pickups, he's worth speculating on today if you're seeking saves.

Fantasy Tip: The bad blood between these teams was obvious, and there will likely be some sort of suspension for Odor and possibly others involved. Stay tuned for updates on any discipline handed down.

Blue Jays | Toronto could use six starters

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 17:03:52 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays are entertaining the idea of temporarily using a six-man rotation, in order to limit the number of innings that SPs Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman will throw this season. SP Drew Hutchison, who is currently pitching for Class AAA Buffalo, is the most likely candidate to be used as a sixth starter, although RPs Gavin Floyd and Jesse Chavez (back) could also step into the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Toronto's starters lead the majors in innings pitched (95) and the team is in the midst of a stretch where they play 29 games in 30 days, hence the desire to add another starter. Hutchison is worthy of consideration for AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues if he gets promoted. Manager John Gibbons views Floyd as a pitcher only capable of throwing one to three innings at this point and Chavez has been battling a sore back recently, so they appear less likely to be used in starting roles.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison to start in minors?

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 13:29:42 -0800

Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison appears to be on the outside looking in for the competition for the fifth starting spot, and he's likely to begin the year at Class AAA Buffalo. SPs Aaron Sanchez, Jesse Chavez, Gavin Floyd and Roberto Hernandez will be the others competing with Hutchison in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: This race likely comes down to Sanchez and Hutchison, and whoever performs better this spring could win it. Sanchez has the most upside of the group, but concerns over home-run allowance and questions about his health should temper your expectations.

Blue Jays | Jesse Chavez wins arbitration case

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 09:28:04 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays SP Jesse Chavez won his arbitration hearing Saturday, Feb. 6, and was awarded $4 million. The Blue Jays argued to give him $3.6 million.

Fantasy Tip: Chavez will have a chance to compete for Toronto's final starting rotation spot in spring training, but he may be a better fit for the bullpen. Coming off an injury that ended his 2015 season, Chavez's fantasy value remains minimal, and he'd only be worth a flier in AL-only leagues if he lands in the rotation.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison favorite for rotation spot

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 13:58:13 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison will likely receive the first crack at the final starting rotation spot as he competes with SPs Jesse Chavez and Aaron Sanchez for the spot.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison went 13-5 but also had a 5.57 ERA in 2015 and struck out fewer hitters per nine innings than in his rookie season. That'll keep him from going until the later rounds in most fantasy drafts, but scooping him up then is surely worthwhile. He has the skills to be useful in most formats if you pick your spots wisely.
