Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro sits again

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 20:54:50 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro was out of the starting lineup for the third straight game Tuesday, April 22, against the Baltimore Orioles. C Josh Thole works as the personal catch for SP R.A. Dickey, who started Tuesday, and he has been hitting well. "Thole is swinging," manager John Gibbons said. "I could tell (Navarro) was starting to slow down a bit. It helps us keep (him) fresh over the whole season, and he'll be available on the bench if we need him."

Blue Jays | No pain for Casey Janssen

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 16:48:05 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Casey Janssen (back) said he's in no pain, and he's not calling his recent shutdown from throwing as a setback. Janssen said he had some swelling in the area between his hip bone and ribs. He is playing catch daily to improve his arm strength and hopes to throw in the bullpen this week.

Blue Jays | Casey Janssen to throw bullpens this week

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 14:14:23 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Casey Janssen (back) is scheduled to throw a couple bullpen sessions this week, and then he'll return to a rehab assignment next week.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as though Janssen may be back in a few more weeks. Stay patient. In the meantime, Sergio Santos owners can enjoy some more time with him closing it out in the ninth inning. He may be useful when Janssen returns, if the Jays choose to ease him back into the role.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey's opponents adjusting

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 10:17:52 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey is sporting a 6.26 ERA, a 1.652 WHIP and has 15 walks in 23 innings this year. Opposing hitters this year are being more patient with Dickey's knuckleball, and he's averaging 4.04 pitches per batter, which is up significantly from his 3.62 average during his Cy Young season a few years ago. Dickey's velocity is back, and he has more movement on his pitches than he did last season, but he's also not generating many swings and misses, and his ground-ball rate is down from the 2012 season.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey's improved velocity from last year and good health are nice signs, but the walks will need to come down in order for him to be an effective fantasy baseball piece. 2012 was an outlier that won't be atttained again, and you'll likely have to deal with more rough outings along the way if you're sticking with him.

Blue Jays | Mark Buehrle improves to 4-0

Sat, 19 Apr 2014 14:23:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle tossed seven shutout innings to beat the Cleveland Indians Saturday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Skeptics should hedge their stance and ride his hot start. He won't strike out many batters, but he needs to be scooped off waivers.

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 19:40:57 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Francisco may get most of the playing time while Lind is out of the lineup and should be an option for most AL-only owners.

Toronto Blue Jays RPs Steve Delabar, Sergio Santos and J.A. Happ issued eight walks combined in the eighth inning of a 9-5 win by the Minnesota Twins. The last time a team walked eight batters in an inning was April 19, 1996, when the Texas Rangers walked eight times against the Baltimore Orioles.
