Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro to return for Game 2

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 11:42:52 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list in time for Game 2 of the team's doubleheader Tuesday, June 2. He's been out since April 22 with a strained hamstring. C Josh Thole is expected to be sent down to the minors as a result. Navarro will see action as the team's designated hitter and as a pinch hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) won't be an outstanding choice on FantasyScore immediately after his activation, but he should be seen as a sleeper play when he faces certain right-handed pitchers. In Game 2 against Nats starter Max Scherzer, if he's in the lineup, Navarro should be avoided.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin resting vs. Nats

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 12:59:09 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals Monday, June 1. C Josh Thole is starting behind the plate and batting sixth Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has caught fire over the past 25 games with 15 runs, four home runs, 11 RBI and a .340/.376/.564 slash line. His rising value is built into his FantasyScore cap hit, though, so be wary of when you insert him into your lineups. Thole ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin not starting Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 12:40:04 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 26, against the Chicago White Sox. C Josh Thole is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: With John Danks pitching for the White Sox, Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is likely taking a seat because it is a lefty on the hill. Thole ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is not worth the start.

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.

Mon, 04 May 2015 13:35:16 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 4. C Josh Thole is catching and hitting sixth in the batting order against New York Yankees SP Chase Whitley.

Fantasy Tip: Thole ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has become Dickey's personal catcher at this point, so this is no surprise. Consider Thole a low-end catching commodity at FantasyScore tonight.

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.
