Toronto Blue Jays OF Dalton Pompey (head) is currently under Major League Baseball's concussion protocol after he exited a World Baseball Classic game for Team Canada Saturday, March 11, due to mild dizziness. Pompey was injured after his face slammed into the dirt while stealing a base in the sixth inning. However, he remained in the game for another inning on defense after being consulted by a trainer for several minutes. Pompey will be re-examined Sunday, March 12, before a determination can be made when he can resume playing.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Dalton Pompey could be in the mix to win the team's starting left field job in 2016.
Fantasy Tip: Pompey hit .223 with two home runs, six RBIs and five steals in 94 at-bats as a rookie last season. His chief competition for the job will be Michael Saunders, who missed most of last season due to knee problems. Both players are only worth monitoring in AL-only leagues at this point.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Kevin Pillar and 2B Ryan Goins are not in the starting lineup Thursday, Oct. 1. OF Dalton Pompey is starting in center field and hitting leadoff, while SS Jonathan Diaz is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Tyler Wilson.
Fantasy Tip: Pompey ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is certainly worth a look as a sleeper outfield selection on FantasyScore against a hittable pitcher while hitting leadoff. Diaz is not available to own for your daily lineups today.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ben Revere is out of the lineup Thursday, Oct. 1, with OF Dalton Pompey leading off.
Fantasy Tip: Pompey ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has a bright future, but his .191-2-6 line isn't exhibitive of it. He's not a real good FantasyScore option atop this lineup with the stars sitting out against Tyler Wilson.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Dalton Pompey was sent to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday, May 2.
Fantasy Tip: Pompey earned the starting job but promptly hit .183 with 22 strikeouts in 83 at-bats. Remove him from your options immediately in daily leagues and stash him on your bench in deeper yearly leagues. As for an immediate replacement in Toronto, look at Kevin Pillar ($2,200, 4.4% of cap), who has had some great defensive plays in the outfield.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Dalton Pompey is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. 3B Danny Valencia is starting in left field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz.
Fantasy Tip: Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is off to a fast start in limited duty in 2015, going 9-for-17 (.529). Despite his great start, Valencia is a low-end FantasyScore name at the hot corner against Buchholz. Valencia hit just .211 (32-for-152) with two of his four home runs against right-handers in 2014.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Dalton Pompey will continue to bat second in the order Sunday, April 12, against the Baltimore Orioles.
Fantasy Tip: The switch-hitting Pompey ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) will bat second for the third consecutive game, as the Jays take on the right-handed Chris Tillman. Ten of Pompey's 11 major league hits have come against right-handers and so has his lone home run. While that sample size is irrelevant, the more Pompey can hit in front of OF Jose Bautista, 1B Edwin Encarnacion and 3B Josh Donaldson, the better for his fantasy value.
