Blue Jays | Steve Delabar with a save

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 15:55:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Steve Delabar recorded his first save of the season in an extra-inning affair against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, June 24. He struck out two in his inning of work after RPs Roberto Osuna and Brett Cecil already worked scoreless outings.

Fantasy Tip: Osuna is likely to be the first option in save situations for the Jays after they demoted Cecil from the role yesterday, but with the game tied in the ninth, Osuna was used to keep the game knotted Wednesday. Delabar is worth an add for saves-hungry owners in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, though.

Blue Jays | Roberto Osuna the favorite to close

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 09:45:58 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Roberto Osuna sounds like manager John Gibbons' first choice to pitch the ninth inning after the team demoted RP Brett Cecil from the role Tuesday, June 23. However, Gibbons didn't specifically name Osuna as the new closer, and RP Steve Delabar is another possibility. Osuna strengthened his chances with a two-inning, five-strikeout save Monday, June 22. Gibbons said the team isn't ready to define bullpen roles after the shakeup. RP Bo Schultz will also be moved back and be given added responsibility. Osuna has allowed eight earned runs in 34 innings this year while walking 10 and striking out 40. "He's got the stuff to do it, he's got the makeup to do it, too. He's a tough kid," praised Gibbons. "He gets strikeouts and you know he's going to throw strikes. … Shoot, he looks like a veteran out there."

Fantasy Tip: Osuna should immediately be scooped off the waiver wire if he's still available in your league. Delabar, who allowed a home run in a non-save situation Tuesday, is an option for those scrounging for saves in deeper leagues. Don't feel the need to hang onto Cecil in shallow mixed formats.

Blue Jays | Roberto Osuna, Steve Delabar closing candidates

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:04:29 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RPs Roberto Osuna and Steve Delabar are both candidates to see save chances after the team announced they'll go with a closer-by-committee after bumping RP Brett Cecil from the role. Manager John Gibbons isn't defining any bullpen roles right now.

Fantasy Tip: Osuna should be your first target on the waiver wire, but Delabar is worth pursuing for those save-hungry owners in deeper leagues. In shallow mixed leagues, dropping Cecil is advised if you don't have the room to stash.

Blue Jays | Brett Cecil out as closer

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 14:25:04 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Brett Cecil has been removed from the closer role, and it looks as though Toronto will go with a closer-by-committee approach for now.

Fantasy Tip: Cecil has a 5.96 ERA after being hit with the loss Sunday and blowing a save last Monday. Roberto Osuna (2.12 ERA and 10.6 K/9 in 34 innings over 31 outings) recorded a two-out save last night and should be first in line for save chances in the immediate future. Run to your league's waiver and scoop him up immediately if he's still available.

Blue Jays | Brett Cecil struggles again

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 16:55:25 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Brett Cecil picked up his second loss in his last three appearances, allowing four runs on two hits and walking two against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, June 21.

Fantasy Tip: Cecil had been seeing a majority of the save chances recently, but he has allowed at least two runs in three straight appearances and at least one run in five of his last six outings. Don't be surprised if someone else receives the nod in the ninth inning, but given the struggles of Toronto's bullpen as a whole, it is tough to see one pitcher holding down the closer's role.

Blue Jays | Brett Cecil gets another save

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 14:58:13 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Brett Cecil recorded a save for the second consecutive game Saturday, June 13, against the Boston Red Sox. It was Cecil's fourth save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Cecil's fantasy value had taken a huge hit as he hadn't had a save opportunity since May 4. Cecil has given up just four earned runs since April 17, and he remains an elite reliever, but a lack of opportunity could remain an issue.

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 22:30:53 -0700

Blue Jays | Brett Cecil back as closer

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 13:11:01 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Brett Cecil is back in the closer's role.

Fantasy Tip: Well, that was fast. This is an unsettled situation, but the reality is Cecil will see the lion's share of save opportunities moving forward. Cecil is a safe play once again, and Miguel Castro should be held onto in deeper leagues just in case.

Blue Jays | Brett Cecil was in line for save

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 21:36:11 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Brett Cecil would have worked for the save Monday, April 27, had the situation presented itself, manager John Gibbons said.

Fantasy Tip: Miguel Castro has been shaky lately, so perhaps if Cecil can long a few saves and solid appearances he will emerge as a decent fantasy option for AL-only owners.

Blue Jays | Brett Cecil off limits Friday

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 09:50:23 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Brett Cecil will not pitch Friday, April 10, after pitching the previous two days.

Fantasy Tip: Miguel Castro and Roberto Osuna are off limits as well, and that leaves Aaron Loup or Marco Estrada for a potential save opportunity. Neither are worth picking up in standard formats.
