Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki on the bench

Sat, 28 May 2016 08:25:29 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Barney is hitting .311 in limited playing time this month but has gone hitless in his last six at-bats. Barney has some value in daily fantasy leagues, but owners should be able to find better starting options to use.

Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki remains out

Thu, 26 May 2016 11:11:07 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki (quadriceps) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 26. 2B Darwin Barney is starting at shortstop and is batting ninth against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Tulo is still day-to-day and could return as soon as Friday. He was beginning to see consistent results at the plate, too, so make sure to get him back into all lineups when he's ready. Barney, despite a .319 average in 69 at-bats, doesn't move the fantasy needle enough to be anything more than a desperation daily pick.

Blue Jays | Two Jays sitting Wednesday

Wed, 11 May 2016 10:58:47 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders and 2B Ryan Goins are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 11. OF Ezequiel Carrera is hitting eighth, and 2B Darwin Barney hits seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Carrera is hitting .350 in 40 at-bats this season, and he's a basement flyer against Madison Bumgarner. It's a lefty-lefty matchup, but Carrera is 6-for-12 (.500) with a homer against lefties this year. Barney has opened eyes with a .357 average and is 5-for-17 (.294) lifetime against MadBum. He has his limits, though, and he has limited upside in DFS.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin, Ryan Goins out

Sat, 07 May 2016 07:21:05 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin and 2B Ryan Goins are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw Saturday, May 7. 2B Darwin Barney will start at second base and is batting eighth, while C Josh Thole will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Barney has gone 5-for-11 in five games this month but does not have an RBI in his last seven games. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use. Thole has struggled at the plate this season and could be avoided in most leagues.

Blue Jays | Toronto using platoon at 2B

Tue, 03 May 2016 13:50:23 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2Bs Darwin Barney and Ryan Goins will platoon at second base, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Neither player can do much with the lumber, so this likely kills any small fantasy value that Goins might've had in deep AL-only leagues. Barney and Goins are just keeping the seat warm at the keystone for when Devon Travis is healthy enough to return. Travis should be stashed in all leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Barney has gone 4-for-7 with one home run and three RBI over the last two games and could be used in some daily fantasy leagues because of his recently play.

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:17:54 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Darwin Barney is batting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp Sunday, April 24. 2B Ryan Goins is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Barney is 5-for-17 with a home run and three RBI in seven games this year. He should be viewed as an inexpensive middle infield option for daily contests.
