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.
