Blue Jays | Jose Bautista has appeal heard

Thu, 26 May 2016 11:50:16 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista had his appeal heard Thursday, May 26, on his one-game suspension. There has been no announcement on it yet.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista is in the lineup Thursday, but that could just mean it'll be a day or two for an announcement on his appeal. He's leading off against CC Sabathia today, and he's a daily consideration in a good matchup.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista homers in third straight

Sun, 22 May 2016 15:25:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista continued to make himself comfortable atop the batting order Sunday, May 22, igniting a three-run first-inning against the Minnesota Twins with a leadoff home run.

Fantasy Tip: It turned out to be the only hit in five at-bats for Bautista, who finished the four-game series 5-for-17 with three homers and six RBI - all out of the leadoff spot. The six-time All-Star is still sporting an unsightly .230 average as most of the entire Blue Jays' offense appears to be in a funk. Still, the power potential makes Bautista impossible to sit in any league and his resume suggests his batting average will pick up soon enough. Keep him active in all leagues.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista batting leadoff

Thu, 19 May 2016 13:54:52 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista is batting in the leadoff spot Thursday, May 19, against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista also uncharacteristically hit second last night, so clearly, manager John Gibbons is looking to get something going by jumbling up the lineup a bit, considering his club has lost five in a row to drop under .500. This could potentially hurt Bautista's value, as he won't see as many runners on base when he steps up to the plate, but it's not likely this move sticks.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista suspended one game

Tue, 17 May 2016 13:42:27 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista was suspended for one game for his role in the fight between the Blue Jays and Texas Rangers on Sunday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista is hitting third on Tuesday, May 17, against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer, so no doubt he is appealing the suspension. Until you hear otherwise, keep Bautista in your lineup in fantasy leagues. The only leagues that will likely be affected by Bautista's suspension are daily leagues, because he will be out for just a game if the appeal is heard and rejected.

Blue Jays | Another disappointment for Joey Bats

Tue, 03 May 2016 23:22:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista was hitless in five at-bats with a strikeouts Tuesday, May 3, against the Texas Rangers as his batting average slipped to .219.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista is struggling mightily at the dish, going 0-12 for with six strikeouts in three games in May, and 2-for-25 (.080) since April 25 to drop his average from .268 to .219 just since May 25. Despite the awful stretch, Bautista has the ability to pile up extra-base hits and RBIs in bunches, and he'll even this out. Fantasy owners just need to be patient, although DFS players can avoid him until he gets into a groove.

Blue Jays | Justin Smoak out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 07:36:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak is out of the lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Sunday, May 1. DH/1B Edwin Encarnacion will play first base and bat fifth, with OF Jose Bautista batting third and serving as the designated hitter. OF Ezequiel Carrera will start in right field and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Smoak is just 3-for-19 at the plate since assuming Toronto's starting job at first base on a full-time basis and should continue to be viewed as a low-end option at the position in all fantasy formats going forward. Carrera is hitting .344 with three extra-base hits through his first 32 at-bats and is worthy of consideration as a value play in daily games this afternoon.

Blue Jays | Joey Bats continues to shine

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 21:34:52 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista went 2-for-5 with a double, run scored and RBI Tuesday, April 19, against the Baltimore Orioles. Bautista has at least one hit in each of his 14 games.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners can complain, perhaps, about his lack of homers to this point, as he has only two. However, he is hitting .300 with 11 RBIs and he is more than doing his part offensively.
