Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson ends first half on fire

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 13:35:32 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson finished 2-for-4 with a three-run blast off Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez to lift the Blue Jays to their eighth win in nine games on Sunday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson, who heads into the Midsummer Classic batting .304 with 23 home runs, 63 RBI and a major-league best 80 runs scored, has looked every bit like the reigning AL MVP since June 8, hitting .408 with 10 homers, 33 RBI and 37 runs scored over that 32-game stretch. The three time All-Star also became only the sixth player in AL history to amass 20 home runs and 80 runs before the break, joining Lou Gehrig, Ted Williams, Reggie Jackson, Frank Thomas and Alex Rodriguez.

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion, Russell Martin out

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 08:09:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays DH/1B Edwin Encarnacion and C Russell Martin are not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez Sunday, July 10. 3B Josh Donaldson is batting second and serving as the designated hitter, while 1B Justin Smoak is playing first base and batting seventh. In addition, OF Michael Saunders will play left field and bat third, while C Josh Thole starts behind the plate and hits ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Saunders is batting .423 over the past seven days with four doubles, a home run and five RBI, making him a must-start option in all fantasy formats. On the other hand, Smoak and Thole haven't fared so well at the plate recently. Smoak is 4-for-24 (.167) during the month of July and is hitless in 12 lifetime at-bats versus Sanchez, while Thole is batting just .120 through 75 at-bats this season. They should be avoided everywhere.
