Blue Jays | Andrew Cashner an option for Toronto

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 05:57:35 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner is receiving trade interest from the Toronto Blue Jays, but the two sides have not made progress because they have not agreed on his value, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: There is a good chance that Cashner is moved before the trade deadline, so owners should monitor the situation. He has allowed one run or fewer in three of his last four starts but still has a 4.79 ERA this season. He would still be a decent starting candidate if he is traded to the Blue Jays.

Blue Jays | Toronto looking at Melvin Upton

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 05:56:45 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. is receiving trade interest from the Toronto Blue Jays, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how Upton would be used if he is traded to the Blue Jays but probably would see decent playing time because he has played well this season. He would still be an attractive option in most leagues but would lose some value if he is not starting.

Blue Jays | Marco Estrada solid in return

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 19:15:04 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada (back) allowed two runs on seven hits while walking one and striking out three in a loss to Seattle Mariners Friday, July 22, in his first start after being activated from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Estrada's back seemed to hold up just fine, and he should be save to deploy going forward.

Blue Jays | Toronto looking at CC Sabathia

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 18:46:06 -0700

A Toronto Blue Jays scout was present at New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia's start against the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia, who turned 36 years old Thursday, is 5-8 with a 4.04 ERA through 17 starts this season and is 0-3 with a 6.85 ERA in four outings this month. His status as a 10-and-5 player gives him veto power over any potential deal and few teams would likely be willing to pay a sizable chunk of his remaining contract anyway, so expect the veteran lefty to stay put in the Bronx.

Blue Jays | Toronto looking at Andrew Cashner

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 18:25:46 -0700

A Toronto Blue Jays scout was present at San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner's start against the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays are expected to move SP Aaron Sanchez to the bullpen soon in an attempt to limit his innings this season, which explains their interest in Cashner. The 29-year-old right-hander has posted a 1.54 ERA over his last two starts, with no walks and 17 strikeouts through 11 2/3 innings, but should still be viewed as a matchup play in most fantasy formats.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista says he's ready

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 16:35:37 -0700

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.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders starting vs. Seattle

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:02:20 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders is batting fifth as the designated hitter against Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Saunders recently left the club to attend to a personal manner, but with him back in the lineup, you can start him confidently in all fantasy formats Friday. For the season, Saunders owns a .286/.365/.528 slash line with 50 runs, 16 home runs and 43 RBI. He's a solid starter in all seasonal settings.

Blue Jays | Ezequiel Carrera still out of the lineup

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:54:05 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles') is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. OF Junior Lake is starting in right field and batting eighth against Seattle Mariners SP James Paxton Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Carrera hasn't played since Saturday, July 16, but he remains a viable option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Until Jose Bautista (toe) returns, Carrera is in line for semi-regular starts when healthy. Lake is a potential flier in daily contests Friday because of his .281/.326/.458 career slash line against left-handed pitchers, but he isn't a seasonal option at this point.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin out a few days

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:31:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin (knee) stayed in the sauna too long Thursday, July 21, and then became lightheaded and fell in the shower and hurt his knee, according to manager John Gibbons. Gibbons noted Martin will miss a "couple days."

Fantasy Tip: Josh Thole will see time behind the plate with Martin out, but Thole owns a .160/.253/.210 slash line. Continue to view the backup catcher as a desperation fantasy option. Martin should be held onto in all fantasy formats.

Blue Jays | Marco Estrada activated from DL

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 12:27:20 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada (back) was activated from the disabled list to start against the Seattle Mariners Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: There could be a slight injury risk in starting Estrada Friday, but he's been an exceptional hurler for Toronto. Since joining the Jays in 2015, Estrada owns a 3.06 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 230 strikeouts through 285 1/3 innings. View Estrada as a solid mid-rotation arm for your virtual staff.

Blue Jays | Darwin Barney drives in three runs

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 19:12:10 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays INF/OF Darwin Barney went 2-for-4 with a triple, three RBI and two runs scored in a victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Barney is batting .297 with three home runs and 15 RBI through 192 at-bats this season. He is worth owning in AL-only fantasy leagues and should be viewed as a productive source of cap relief in daily contests.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson drives in three runs

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 18:41:48 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson went 2-for-4 with a double, home run, three RBI and two runs scored in a victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson is batting .390 with five home runs and 17 RBI through 59 at-bats and continues to be a must-start option at the hot corner in all fantasy formats.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman earns win Wednesday

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 18:22:24 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (8-4) allowed one run on eight hits over eight innings in a victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks Wednesday, July 20, with no walks and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Following a disastrous June, Stroman has hurled quality starts in three out of four outings this month. He has a favorable matchup for his next scheduled start versus the San Diego Padres Monday, July 25.

Blue Jays | Ezequiel Carrera still injured

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:54:15 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles') is still dealing with an Achilles' injury, which is why 2B Darwin Barney is starting in left field Wednesday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Sadly for Carrera, his fantasy value is likely going to drop even more once Jose Bautista returns early next week. Carrera had a .274 average, 35 runs and five steals during a playing time boost with Joey Bats injured. He could still play sparingly, but he'll likely be limited to AL-only leagues as depth moving forward.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders away from team

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:42:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders has returned home for personal reasons, but manager John Gibbons thinks Saunders will be back for the game Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays are off on Thursday, so hopefully Saunders won't miss another game. The lefty-swinging Canadian is having a breakout year with a .286/.365/.528 slash line, 16 home runs and 43 RBI in 318 at-bats and should be started with confidence in all formats when he's playing.
