Blue Jays | Brandon Morrow to start Saturday

Tue, 14 May 2013 12:46:45 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Brandon Morrow (back) has been pushed back to start Saturday, May 18, with SP Russ Ortiz starting Wednesday, May 15. SP Chad Jenkins will likely be used to start early next week.

Fantasy Tip: Morrow's back ailments have become a real concern, but at least he's on track to make a start this weekend. Given his inconsistency and injury, though, it might be wise to leave him on your bench this weekend.

Blue Jays | Russ Ortiz to enter rotation

Thu, 09 May 2013 13:45:14 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Russ Ortiz will stay in the team's four-man rotation for the time being, and he'll start Friday, May 10, unless he's needed in relief Thursday, May 9. The team won't need a fifth starter for a week and a half.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz should basically only be an option for owners desperate in AL-only leagues. He won't receive more than a handful of starts, most likely.
