Blue Jays | Ezequiel Carrera still out of the lineup

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:54:05 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles') is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. OF Junior Lake is starting in right field and batting eighth against Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Carrera hasn't played since Saturday, July 16, but he remains a viable option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Until Jose Bautista (toe) returns, Carrera is in line for semi-regular starts when healthy. Lake is a potential flier in daily contests Friday because of his .281/.326/.458 career slash line against left-handed pitchers, but he isn't a seasonal option at this point.

Blue Jays | Kevin Pillar, Devon Travis resting

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 08:33:10 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Kevin Pillar and 2B Devon Travis are not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Sunday, July 3. OF Ezequiel Carrera will bat leadoff and play center field, with OF Junior Lake batting seventh and playing right field and INF Darwin Barney batting ninth and starting at second base. In addition, 1B Justin Smoak is back in the lineup, batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Smoak is batting just .150 with two solo home runs in 60 at-bats since June 1, and should be avoided in all formats. Carrera is just 4-for-24 at the plate over the past week and 1-for-12 versus Cleveland pitching this year, so he is also not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon. Lake and Barney have hit well in limited action recently and could be worth taking a gamble on as inexpensive fliers in DFS.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders, Russell Martin out

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 10:42:50 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders and C Russell Martin are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. OF Junior Lake is starting in right field and is hitting seventh, while C Josh Thole is behind the plate and batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like just a normal day off for both Saunders and Martin Wednesday. Lake has two hits in six at-bats with the Blue Jays, including a home run, but neither he nor Thole move the fantasy needle much at all. At best, they are desperation picks as deep sleepers in DFS today while at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin back in lineup Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 10:10:14 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is back in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Sunday, June 26. In addition, OF Junior Lake is batting eighth and playing right field, while INF Darwin Barney is batting ninth and playing shortstop. SS Troy Tulowitzki will bat sixth and serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is batting .264 with three home runs and 14 RBI in 53 at-bats this month and makes a viable catching option today. Barney has cooled off at the plate following a hot start and is hitting .250 through 60 at-bats in June. Lake has only had two at-bats since joining the Jays and should be strictly viewed as desperation salary cap relief.

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 13:47:55 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Junior Lake was recalled from Class AAA Buffalo Friday, June 24. In a corresponding move, OF Darrell Ceciliani was optioned to Buffalo.

Fantasy Tip: Lake owns an underwhelming .244/.328/.387 slash line through 271 plate appearances with Buffalo, and he doesn't project to see much playing time with Toronto. He is a desperation add in all fantasy formats. Ceciliani should be replaced in all leagues.
