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.

Blue Jays | Joey Bats finally figures out pitcher

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 19:52:27 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista went 1-for-2 with a triple, three walks and a run scored Tuesday, April 5, against the Tampa Bay Rays. The triple came off of SP Jake Odorizzi, a pitcher who had previously held Bautista hitless in 13 career at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Sometimes DFS players put a lot of stock in hitter vs. batter numbers, and rightly so when the sample size is large, but base your decisions on at least 20-25 career at-bats and don't get carried away on smaller sample sizes.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista open to four-year deal?

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 18:15:06 -0700

Although Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista is believed to want a five- or six-year deal worth $30 million per season, he could be open to a four-year deal worth $30 million each year. The Blue Jays reportedly favor giving him a three-year contract that would pay him the same amount annually as New York Mets OF Yoenis Cespedes.

Fantasy Tip: The 35-year-old Bautista hit .250 with 40 home runs and 114 RBIs in 2015, while leading the American League in bases on balls. He should continue to be viewed as an elite outfielder worthy of being selected in the second round of drafts for mixed leagues despite his age.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista scratched Wednesday

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 14:26:18 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (neck) was scratched with a stiff neck Wednesday, March 23, but it was a precautionary move. The minor issue isn't expected to keep Bautista out for long.

Fantasy Tip: At his age (35), injuries are an issue, but despite a shoulder ailment at the beginning of 2015, Joey Bats posted his best power numbers. His hitting skills remain strong, so until something shows us otherwise, he's an elite No. 1 fantasy outfielder worth taking in Round 2.
