Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (toe) went 1-for-3 with a walk out of the leadoff spot in his first game back off the disabled list Monday, July 25, against the San Diego Padres.
Fantasy Tip: It was Bautista's first game since June 16. Although he's been disappointing this year to the tune of a .230/.360/.455 slash line, he's still one of the game's premier sluggers and can be returned to starting fantasy lineups. The fact that he got a hit, albeit only a single, in his first game back should at least help him settle in again right away.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (toe) was activated from the disabled list Monday, July 25. He is starting in right field and leading off against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Bautista is an elite power commodity in all fantasy formats, and he should be returned to starting lineups. For the season, the outfielder sits with 41 runs, 12 home runs, 41 RBI and a .230/.360/.455 slash line through just 65 games. His return projects to significantly cut into the playing time of Ezequiel Carrera and Darwin Barney.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (toe) acknowledged that his toe isn't 100% yet, but he feels healthy enough to return to the majors after he finishes his rehab assignment with Class AAA Buffalo this weekend. He isn't concerned about returning and playing on the turf at Rogers Centre. Bautista is unsure if he'll immediately return to the outfield or serve as the designated hitter, and he was also non-committal about returning to the leadoff spot.
Fantasy Tip: Joey Bats wasn't helping his fantasy owners in average this year (.230), but his power remains intact with 12 home runs and 41 RBI in 235 at-bats. Bautista is a high-end outfielder in all leagues in a potent Toronto lineup, and he should be returned immediately to starting lineups if he's activated early next week. Ezequiel Carrera will be hurt the most by Bautista's return.
