Toronto Blue Jays SP Felix Doubront was designated for assignment Wednesday, July 29.
Fantasy Tip: Doubront ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) can safely be dropped in AL-only leagues. The Blue Jays will need another starter this weekend to replace Doubront in the rotation. Perhaps that arm will come in the form of a trade. Stay tuned.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Felix Doubront allowed just one run and six hits over 6 2/3 innings in a win Tuesday, July 7, against the Chicago White Sox. It was his first start in the majors since Sept. 20 when he was a member of the Chicago Cubs.
Fantasy Tip: Doubront could have bought himself another start after his strong outing. If he sticks in the rotation FantasyScore players could find him to be a good value.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Felix Doubront will start Tuesday, July 7, unless he is needed in relief Monday, July 6, according to manager John Gibbons.
Fantasy Tip: Doubront ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) should be avoided everywhere in this potential spot start, even though the White Sox have been held down offensively for much of the season.

Fantasy Tip: It may be worth a pick towards the last few rounds of deep NL drafts depending on who wins the job. Stay tuned.
