Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) looks like he is all right following time off on the disabled list. It didn't take him very long to get adjusted, so feel free to put him back in your lineup for now.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison allowed four singles, walked none and struck out eight in a 5-0 shutout of the Chicago White Sox on Monday, May 25. It was Hutchison's first shutout since May 16 of last year.
Fantasy Tip: Hutchison ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has had his share of early struggles, which mainly revolved around the Blue Jays being unable to hit and support their starting pitchers. This is definitely a step in the right direction.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known when Bautista ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) will be able to play again so owners should monitor the situation. Encarnacion ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) should be a nightly starting option on FantasyScore. Smoak ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is only hitting .217 this month and has recorded two RBI during that span. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid Smoak for the time being.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be left out of the lineup for a bit as he gets used to pitching, but otherwise he will be good to go sometime this week barring injury.
Mon, 25 May 2015 12:30:24 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is showing better control, but he is still a matchups pitcher because the Blue Jays have had trouble hitting for their starting rotation.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBIs, two runs scored and a walk in an 8-2 win over the Seattle Mariners Sunday, May 24, and he has three home runs in his last four games
Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has seven RBIs during the same stretch, and eight of his 12 home runs have come this month. He is one of the premier power hitters in the game today, and he is worth paying up for at FantasyScore when he is enjoying a power surge.

Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays OF/DH Jose Bautista (shoulder) was not in the starting lineup against the Seattle Mariners Sunday, May 24, because he had received a cortisone shot in his right shoulder. He has been unable to throw for several weeks due to a shoulder strain, limiting him to duties as a designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: Bautista ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is expected to be sidelined again Monday, May 25, because it usually takes 48 to 72 hours for a player who has received a cortisone shot to return to action. There is no timetable for when he will resume playing in the field, although the Jays begin an interleague series against the Washington Nationals Monday, June 1, where they won't be allowed to use a DH.
Sun, 24 May 2015 07:40:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is 0-for-his-last-12 plate appearances, but he was 8-for-17 before that. With a premium spot in the lineup, Martin is one of the top catcher options on FantasyScore.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista will have the day off Sunday, May 24, against the Seattle Mariners. 1B Edwin Encarnacion will serve as the designated hitter, with 1B Justin Smoak getting the start in the field.
Fantasy Tip: Smoak ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is 2-for-3 in his last three appearances as a pinch-hitter. Smoak went 1-for-4 in his most recent start at first base, but his upside is limited with only one extra-base hit on the season.

Updating a previous post, Toronto Blue Jays 2B Ryan Goins (ankle) twisted his left ankle while leaving the batter's box in the fifth inning Saturday, May 23, against the Seattle Mariners. Goins told reporters his ankle felt sore but "fine" and that he hoped to play Sunday, May 24.
Fantasy Tip: Goins ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) looks like he dodged a major bullet, but it may be best to sit him until he looks like there are no ill effects.
Sat, 23 May 2015 14:03:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It was not immediately known what was up with Goins ($2,400, 4.8% of cap), but you may want him out of your lineup until more information is known about whether or not he will miss time.
Sat, 23 May 2015 13:39:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) is having a decent season, but there is no doubt he will be trade bait by midseason if not before. He continues to be a strong start nevertheless.
Sat, 23 May 2015 07:52:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Carrera ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is sharing time at the position and should be in the starting lineup soon. Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is on a five-game hitting streak and has recorded four RBI in that span. Valencia could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.
Fri, 22 May 2015 14:11:05 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Donaldson's ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) appears minor, and he should be fine to return to the lineup tomorrow. Danny Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been playing well for the Jays, hitting .339 (20-for-59) with a home run and 10 RBI, but he should be avoided tonight at FantasyScore in a matchup against Seattle Mariners star Felix Hernandez.

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder), who received a cortisone shot for his ailing shoulder, is expected to be ready in 15 days when his disabled list stint is up, according to manager John Gibbons.
Fantasy Tip: Travis ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) slowed down offensively after his shoulder injury after a strong start in April. He will return to the starting keystone duties when he's back from the DL. In the meantime, Munenori Kawasaki and Steven Tolleson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) could split repetitions at second base. Both infielders are low-end FantasyScore plays, though.
