Blue Jays | Chris Colabello starting at first

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 08:27:44 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Chris Colabello will start at first base and hit fifth in the order Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Kansas City Royals and RHP Edinson Volquez. 1B Justin Smoak comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Colabello ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has a three-game hit streak, including a pinch-hit single Saturday. Colabello isn't the Blue Jays' best FantasyScore option, but he'll be hitting in an excellent position to drive in runs.

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion still sidelined

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:05:10 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion (finger) remains out of the lineup Thursday, July 30. OF Chris Colabello is starting at first base again and is hitting cleanup against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy.

Fantasy Tip: Colabello ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has tailed off a bit at the plate of late, but he's still hitting .310 (18-for-58) with four of his nine home runs against southpaws this season. He's not a terrible choice as a value pick on FantasyScore tonight.

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion scratched Wednesday

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:43:31 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion (finger) was scratched from the lineup with a jammed left middle finger Wednesday, July 29, but precautionary X-rays came back negative. OF Chris Colabello is replacing Encarnacion in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion may need to sit out a few days, so check to make sure he's in the lineup the next few games before putting him into your lineups. Colabello ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has cooled off a bit lately, but he's still hitting .313 (71-for-227) on the season and could be a nice under-the-radar play against the struggling Rick Porcello.

Blue Jays | Chris Colabello out Wednesday

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:15:12 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Chris Colabello is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. OF Danny Valencia is starting in left field and hitting sixth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerome Williams.

Fantasy Tip: Williams is a very hittable pitcher that Toronto should have success against tonight, including Valencia ($2,900, 5.8% of cap). Valencia probably won't be on many people's radar, but he could be a nice value pick and a great source of salary cap relief.

Blue Jays | Justin Smoak returns to action

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 12:59:10 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak is in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker Sunday, July 26, batting fifth. 1B Chris Colabello is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Smoak ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is only 8-for-38 (.211) this month and is hitless in thee career at-bats versus Walker, so FantasyScore owners should look elsewhere for first base options.

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 11:28:44 -0700

Blue Jays | Chris Colabello not in the lineup

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:51:51 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Chris Colabello is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Friday, July 24. OF Danny Valencia will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Colabello ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and will be back in the lineup soon. Valencia ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in eight of his last 12 games with three home runs and seven RBI during that span. Valencia has a tough matchup but could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 16:10:33 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Chris Colabello is starting at first base and hitting fifth in the order Wednesday, July 22, against the Oakland Athletics and RHP Sonny Gray. 1B Justin Smoak comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Colabello ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is a right-handed hitter, but he's still maintaining a .314 batting average against right-handed pitchers this season. Colabello is just 1-for-7 in his last five games, but he's also drawn four walks. FantasyScore owners can consider him for use in GPP tournaments.
