Toronto Blue Jays 1B Matt Hague is in the lineup hitting fifth Thursday, Oct. 1, with 1B Justin Smoak sitting out.
Fantasy Tip: Hague ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a bit of an unknown with just nine at-bats this year and 81 career at-bats for the 30-year-old. We need more of a sample size before starting him on FantasyScore against Tyler Wilson.

The Toronto Blue Jays will recall 3B Matt Hague from Class AAA Buffalo later in the month.
Fantasy Tip: Hague was the International League MVP in 2015 and could be a solid FantasyScore option down the stretch if he can draw a few starts.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison was optioned to Class AAA Buffalo Monday, Aug. 17, according to a source. The team also recalled 3B Matt Hague and OF Ezequiel Carrera from Class AAA Buffalo.
Fantasy Tip: Toronto will be using a four-man rotation until they need a fifth starter at the end of the month, so Hutchison ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) could return in a few weeks. Hague and Carrera will be options off the bench for the time being, but neither player is a great fantasy option.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Dayan Viciedo gives the team another option in left field with OF Michael Saunders (knee) out, but general manager Alex Anthopoulos said the first base/designated hitter spot is "the most wide open spot in terms of competition." The team has talked about giving 1B Edwin Encarnacion time at DH this year to save his body, and 1Bs Justin Smoak, Daric Barton and Matt Hague are other options for first base.
Fantasy Tip: Viciedo could have fleeting late-round value in deeper mixed leagues depending on his playing time in the first month of the season with Saunders sidelined. Viciedo hit 20-plus homers in two of the last three years, so we know he has the power. He won't do you any favors in the BA department, though, so he'll mainly be an NL-only commodity this year.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are expected to place OF Andrew McCutchen (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list because of an oblique injury, and he could be out at least three to four weeks, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Starling Marte likely will take over in center field when he comes off the seven-day disabled list. Travis Snider likely will see most of the playing time while McCutchen is out but could also be part of a platoon with a right-handed hitter. Jose Tabata, Michael Martinez, Jayson Nix and Matt Hague are options to see playing time as part of a platoon but likely would only be options in NL-only leagues. Owners in deeper mixed leagues should look to add Snider if they have the chance.
