Blue Jays | Ezequiel Carrera starting in right field

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 07:59:01 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ezequiel Carrera is starting in right field and batting seventh against San Diego Padres SP Luis Perdomo Wednesday, July 27. Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Toronto has a lot of flexibility with the addition of Melvin Upton Jr., which is highlighted in the Wednesday lineup. Carrera and Smoak could be victims of hits to their playing time going forward, as manager John Gibbons could utilize Edwin Encarnacion at first base more frequently, and Carrera is likely the fifth outfielder on the current depth chart. Outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, Carrera and Smoak are replaceable.

Blue Jays | Ezequiel Carrera still out of the lineup

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:54:05 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles') is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. OF Junior Lake is starting in right field and batting eighth against Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Carrera hasn't played since Saturday, July 16, but he remains a viable option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Until Jose Bautista (toe) returns, Carrera is in line for semi-regular starts when healthy. Lake is a potential flier in daily contests Friday because of his .281/.326/.458 career slash line against left-handed pitchers, but he isn't a seasonal option at this point.

Blue Jays | Ezequiel Carrera still injured

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:54:15 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles') is still dealing with an Achilles' injury, which is why 2B Darwin Barney is starting in left field Wednesday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Sadly for Carrera, his fantasy value is likely going to drop even more once Jose Bautista returns early next week. Carrera had a .274 average, 35 runs and five steals during a playing time boost with Joey Bats injured. He could still play sparingly, but he'll likely be limited to AL-only leagues as depth moving forward.

Blue Jays | Kevin Pillar, Devon Travis resting

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 08:33:10 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Kevin Pillar and 2B Devon Travis are not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Sunday, July 3. OF Ezequiel Carrera will bat leadoff and play center field, with OF Junior Lake batting seventh and playing right field and INF Darwin Barney batting ninth and starting at second base. In addition, 1B Justin Smoak is back in the lineup, batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Smoak is batting just .150 with two solo home runs in 60 at-bats since June 1, and should be avoided in all formats. Carrera is just 4-for-24 at the plate over the past week and 1-for-12 versus Cleveland pitching this year, so he is also not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon. Lake and Barney have hit well in limited action recently and could be worth taking a gamble on as inexpensive fliers in DFS.

Blue Jays | Ezequiel Carrera back atop the lineup

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 13:52:44 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles') is starting in left field and leading off against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Carrera remains a solid fantasy option in deep mixed and AL-only leagues because of his uptick in playing time with Jose Bautista on the disabled list with turf toe. Carrera's .314/.386/.441 slash line plays nicely atop a potent Toronto lineup, too.
