Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (ribs) was activated from the 15-day disabled list on Monday, May 25. In a corresponding move, SS Munenori Kawasaki was sent to Class AAA Buffalo.
Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be left out of the lineup for a bit as he gets used to pitching, but otherwise he will be good to go sometime this week barring injury.

Toronto Blue Jays SS Munenori Kawasaki is in the lineup Friday, May 22, against the Seattle Mariners.
Fantasy Tip: Steve Tolleson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should be the regular starter with Devon Travis out due to a wrist injury, but it appears Tolleson is getting a night off. This is the season debut for Kawasaki, so hold off on starting him until you get a decent sample size.

The Toronto Blue Jays have placed 3B Brett Lawrie (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list because of an oblique strain. The team also recalled RP Rob Rasmussen from Triple-A Buffalo.
Fantasy Tip: Lawrie goes right back on the disabled list and could miss the rest of the month of August. Munenori Kawasaki and Danny Valencia could receive time at the position, but Juan Francisco could become the regular starter when Adam Lind returns to the lineup. Kawasaki and Valencia probably are short-term options in AL-only leagues while Francisco could help in some mixed leagues.

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Juan Francisco is not in the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 6. 3B Danny Valencia is starting at first base and INF Munenori Kawasaki is starting at the hot corner.

Toronto Blue Jays INFs Ryan Goins, Munenori Kawasaki and Steven Tolleson are each candidates to either be optioned or designated for assignment Tuesday, Aug. 5. The team needs to make a corresponding move after activating 3B Brett Lawrie (finger).

Toronto Blue Jays 2B/3B Brett Lawrie (finger) will require a rehab assignment before coming off the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: His owners will have to be patient. At the keystone in the meantime, it's a mess between Munenori Kawasaki, Ryan Goins and maybe Steven Tolleson.

Toronto Blue Jays INF Munenori Kawasaki (hamstring) left the game Friday, July 11, against the Tampa Bay Rays due to tightness in his right hamstring. He is considered day to day.
