Blue Jays | Russell Martin not in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 12:46:34 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 30, against the Boston Red Sox. C Dioner Navarro is batting seventh. In addition, 3B Josh Donaldson is at designated hitter and 3B Danny Valencia is at third base.

Fantasy Tip: The lineup switches are in part because Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) gets a night off after playing the entire week at catcher. Navarro ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is 3-for-15 in the last seven days and isn't really worth picking up at the moment. Valencia ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has lost a significant chunk of playing time and has little fantasy value.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson has horrible night

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 19:21:27 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson was hitless in four at-bats with three strikeouts Tuesday, June 23, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Since June 12 Donaldson's average has dipped from .322 to .298, as he is 6-for-40 with no homers and just one RBI in the past 10 games. FantasyScore players won't want to use him at a lofty salary of $6,000 (or 12.0% of cap).

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson sitting vs. Rays

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 12:46:15 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 22. OF Danny Valencia is starting at third and batting seventh against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Donaldson in all fantasy formats Monday. He is having a banner season with a league-leading 54 runs. Valencia ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) typically does his best work against southpaws (.929 OPS this season), so he is more of a low-priced flier than anything for FantasyScore players Monday. Still, Valencia has an excellent .575 slugging percentage against righties this season.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson will be DH

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 13:37:11 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson will serve as the designated hitter against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Wednesday, June 17, and is batting second in the lineup. OF Danny Valencia will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is hitting .283 this month with two home runs and six RBI during that span. Donaldson is a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore. Valencia ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has played well in June with a .333 batting average with five RBI. He could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson feasts on lefties

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 09:14:53 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson is hitting .413 with four homers and 10 RBI in 46 at-bats against left-handed pitchers this season.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) comes at a tall price, but he's facing left-handed Jon Niese today. Niese's 1.49 WHIP could inflate even more against Toronto today.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson continues to own lefties

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 14:08:13 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson has a 1.256 OPS this season and is 18-for-42 this season against left-handed pitchers. For his career, Donaldson has a .980 OPS with a .302/.379/.601 slash line against southpaws.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson's ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) success against left-handed pitchers is worth reiterating with him opposing Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand Monday, who happens to be a southpaw. Donaldson basically rules over must-start territory whenever the Blue Jays face a lefty. Make him a lineup priority in FantasyScore contests Monday.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson not slowing down

Sun, 31 May 2015 18:41:41 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 6-5 loss to the Minnesota Twins Sunday, May 31, and he has six home runs in his last six games.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has 11 RBIs and has scored 11 runs over the same stretch, and he is worth every penny at FantasyScore right now.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson on homer binge

Wed, 27 May 2015 14:37:03 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson hit a solo home run against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, May 27, and he has now homered four times in the last three games. Donaldson finished the game 1-for-4 with a run and two RBI to lift his average to .314 on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has been a beast of late, and he's hitting .312 (29-for-93) with seven home runs and 17 RBI in May. He has 12 home runs and 33 RBI in 2015. He should almost be a lock for FantasyScore lineups against most lefty pitchers, but right now, you can't go wrong at all.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson perfect at the plate

Tue, 26 May 2015 21:31:49 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson went 4-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI against the Chicago White Sox Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has played very well for his new team this season and now has 12 home runs on the season. Donaldson should be a starting option on FantasyScore against most matchups.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson has calf issue

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:11:05 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson (calf), who is taking the day off Friday, May 22, has been playing on a "bad calf," according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson's ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) appears minor, and he should be fine to return to the lineup tomorrow. Danny Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been playing well for the Jays, hitting .339 (20-for-59) with a home run and 10 RBI, but he should be avoided tonight at FantasyScore in a matchup against Seattle Mariners star Felix Hernandez.
