Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion (quadriceps) likely will be placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained quadriceps and is expected to miss two to four weeks. The timetable could change based on evaluation over the next few days.
Fantasy Tip: Jose Bautista and Adam Lind may both see time at first base while Encarnacion is out. Darin Mastroianni, Nolan Reimold and Cole Gillespie could be options in the outfield if Bautista spends most of his time at first base. All three probably will be AL-only options at this point.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion (quadriceps) has been diagnosed with a strained quadriceps after he underwent an MRI Sunday, July 6, and there is no timetable with his return. OF Jose Bautista (hamstring) started at first base Sunday and could receive more starts there since it likely would be easier on his injured hamstring. 1B Adam Lind could serve as the designated hitter since he is dealing with a foot injury.
Fantasy Tip: If Bautista spends a majority of his time at first base while Encarnacion is out, Darin Mastroianni, Nolan Reimold and Cole Gillespie could all see time in the outfield. All three likely would be limited be AL-only leagues, but owners looking for speed could consider adding Mastroianni while owners wanting more power could consider Reimold.

Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said OF Corey Hart (hamstring) will miss four to six weeks.
Fantasy Tip: They may mix in uninspiring AL-only types Willie Bloomquist, Cole Gillespie, Stefen Romero, but without making any moves for a player outside the roster, Seattle will likely just trust the intriguing Nick Franklin with extra AB. If things get hairy, maybe they'll consider ex-M Kendrys Morales....
