Toronto Blue Jays OFs Anthony Gose and Kevin Pillar are expected to see a bulk of the playing time in the outfield alongside OF Rajai Davis with OFs Jose Bautista (hip), Melky Cabrera (knee) and Colby Rasmus (oblique) all sidelined. OF Moises Sierra will serve as the fourth outfielder.
Fantasy Tip: Gose and Pillar are worth adding in AL-only formats if you are desperate for help in the OF.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Kevin Pillar and INF Munenori Kawasaki have been officially recalled from Triple-A Buffalo.
Fantasy Tip: It's official. No Anthony Gose. Pillar has a shot at ABs and may be worth an AL-only play for his speed. Kawasaki really has no fantasy value, but he's a fan fav.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Colby Rasmus (oblique) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain. The move is retroactive to Monday, Aug. 12.
Fantasy Tip: Kevin Pillar has been recalled, although no formal announcement has been made. The Jays also dealt Emilio Bonifacio to the Kansas City Royals today, so Anthony Gose could be on his way as well. Toronto may be tempted to give Pillar a shot since many believe he's earned it. Gose has more upside in the long term, however.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Kevin Pillar has been recalled from Triple-A Buffalo. He put up a .307/.353/461 slash line with 23 stolen bases in 123 games between Class AA New Hampshire and the Bisons.
Fantasy Tip: It seems like a good possibility that Colby Rasmus (oblique) is headed to the disabled list because of this move. Stay tuned. It's uncertain how much Pillar will play, but he seems likely to be a reserve initially, although the Jays have little to lose by playing him.
