Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman allows seven runs

Tue, 17 May 2016 21:39:20 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman allowed seven runs on 13 hits in 5 2/3 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday, May 17, to suffer his first loss of the season. He struck out two batters and walked two in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman had his first bad outing of the month Tuesday after allowing only five earned runs in his previous three starts. He is scheduled to face the Minnesota Twins in his next starting and should be an attractive option in most fantasy leagues.

Rays | Desmond Jennings out Tuesday

Tue, 17 May 2016 13:28:08 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Desmond Jennings is not in the lineup Tuesday, May 17. OF Brandon Guyer is leading off against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman.

Fantasy Tip: This has not been a good season at all for Jennings, who is hitting .190 (4-for-21) this month and .188 against American League pitching. Guyer's bat is too hot to keep out of the lineup. He has eight hits in his last five games, including a pair of two-hit contests and a three-hit outing. Guyer carries solid fantasy value in the leadoff spot as well. Jennings has little value until his bat turns around.

Rays | Steve Pearce batting fourth Tuesday

Tue, 17 May 2016 12:50:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 2B Steve Pearce is hitting fourth in the lineup Tuesday, May 17, against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce is on a tear at the plate, and the team is taking advantage of it. Pearce is .318-3-7 in the past week, but in the No. 4 spot he is 14-for-40 (.350) with five home runs and 12 runs batted in for the entire season. For whatever reason, Pearce's power numbers spike in this role, and as long as the team considers him a cleanup threat then you should add him onto your roster.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman baffles Rays again

Sun, 01 May 2016 13:20:39 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman allowed one run on three hits and a pair of walks while striking out a career-high nine over eight frames in a win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Two of Stroman's four victories during his undefeated start this season have come at the expense of the Rays, who he handled on Opening Day. The 25-year-old phenom has worked at least seven innings and yielded three or fewer runs in four of his six outings this season, so continue to trust him for fantasy purposes in his next scheduled start Friday at home against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Blue Jays | Toronto could use six starters

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 17:03:52 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays are entertaining the idea of temporarily using a six-man rotation, in order to limit the number of innings that SPs Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman will throw this season. SP Drew Hutchison, who is currently pitching for Class AAA Buffalo, is the most likely candidate to be used as a sixth starter, although RPs Gavin Floyd and Jesse Chavez (back) could also step into the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Toronto's starters lead the majors in innings pitched (95) and the team is in the midst of a stretch where they play 29 games in 30 days, hence the desire to add another starter. Hutchison is worthy of consideration for AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues if he gets promoted. Manager John Gibbons views Floyd as a pitcher only capable of throwing one to three innings at this point and Chavez has been battling a sore back recently, so they appear less likely to be used in starting roles.

Blue Jays | Quality start for Marcus Stroman

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 21:35:48 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman allowed three earned runs, six hits and a walk over seven innings for a win against the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman improved to 3-0 despite a mediocre 4.13 ERA. That's because his team provides plenty of offensive support. That's the kind of thing fantasy owners love - wins, especially when a guy isn't bringing his best stuff.

Fantasy Tip: With the win, Stroman improved to 2-0 on the season. He will make his next start against the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday, April 19, and he should be viewed as a decent starting option in all fantasy formats.

Rays | Corey Dickerson goes deep

Sun, 03 Apr 2016 16:35:00 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays DH Corey Dickerson went 1-for-4, slugging a ninth-inning solo home run off Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman in a loss on Sunday, April 3.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson was expected to lose some of his fantasy luster following his offseason trade from the Colorado Rockies, so his owners have to be happy to see him show some power in the opener after struggling during the spring. Even if he fails to reach 20 homers in 2016, batting in the middle of the order of the Rays' order should give him plenty of RBI opportunities and allow him to be a high-end third outfielder in fantasy.
