Blue Jays | Russell Martin resting Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:35:29 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 21. C Josh Thole is starting behind the plate and hitting sixth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker.

Fantasy Tip: Thole ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is used mainly for his defensive skills behind the dish, and he has become R.A. Dickey's personal catcher. Ignore him at FantasyScore for his bat.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin resting Wednesday

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 12:02:43 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 29. C Josh Thole is starting behind the plate and hitting eighth in the batting order against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello.

Fantasy Tip: Thole ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is likely to be R.A. Dickey's personal catcher for each of his starts, so it's not a huge surprise that Martin is sitting today. Thole isn't a strong FantasyScore option this evening, as he hit only .232 (23-for-99) with seven RBI against right-handers in 2014.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin sitting vs. Rays

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:04:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, April 24. C Josh Thole is batting ninth and will catch SP R.A. Dickey Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Martin ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) from your lineups Friday. While his batting average (.159) leaves a lot to be desired, his counting starts are impressive, as Martin has already scored nine runs, hit two home runs and drove in nine runs. When in the lineup, Martin is a nice source of cap relief for FantasyScore players. Thole is a defensive-first catcher and career .204 hitter against left-handed pitchers. Avoid him in daily contests Friday.

Blue Jays | Josh Thole starting Friday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 20:58:44 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Josh Thole is expected to make his season debut Friday, April 24, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Thole doesn't have any worthwhile fantasy value, and he is starting because he specializes in catching the knuckleball and R.A. Dickey is on the hill.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro to DL

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:48:58 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring Thursday, April 23, and the move was backdated to April 22. C Josh Thole was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo.

Fantasy Tip: With Navarro and Jose Bautista (shoulder) currently sidelined, Danny Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) and Ryan Goins should see consistent playing time, but both are nothing more than dice rolls at FantasyScore in the right matchups.
