Fantasy Tip: Smoak ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) may see more bench time this week as Bautista works his way back into the lineup following a shoulder injury. Despite bad weather, Joey Bats ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is a fine FantasyScore investment this evening. His shoulder injury affects his throwing, mainly.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) should be a fine option for FantasyScore users against Boston Red Sox starter Joe Kelly tonight, even though he's not back to full health just yet. Bautista is a .299 career hitter with 20 home runs, 27 walks and a 1.054 OPS at Fenway Park in 47 games.

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (rib, side) is unable to hit left-handed because he is dealing with a cracked rib and muscle strain in the same area. Reyes hopes to be able to return to switch hitting, and specially batting left-handed against right-handed pitchers, by the time Toronto returns home from their road trip May 4.
Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has just two hits over 16 plate appearances batting right-handed against right-handed pitchers this season. So his inability to swing left-handed is clearly something fantasy players need to be cognizant of. He makes an extremely risky play in FantasyScore contests against righties at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has missed the last four games because of the injury but may be able to return in a few games. Bautista should be an option on FantasyScore once he returns to the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has a three-game hit-streak going with a run scored and an RBI in each of his last two games. Martin hit his third home run of the season Saturday, and he'll be a decent option with the opportunity for an extra at-bat while at the top of the order.
Sun, 26 Apr 2015 07:24:59 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Travis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) remains a strong value play on FantasyScore and is a near must-start. Travis extended his hit-streak to 11 games Saturday and he will be a strong option again, even against Rays righty Chris Archer.

Fantasy Tip: Just 20, there were bound to peeks and valleys for Castro. He is extremely raw and the learning curve could be steep. Still, his electric arm and pitch arsenal can overwhelm hitters, and unless he is removed form the closer role, he should be owned in all formats.

Fantasy Tip: Travis ($2,800, 5.6% of your cap) has been a monster with a .386-5-16 line during the first couple of weeks of the season. At this price, he's a must-start on FantasyScore.

Updating previous reports, Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (shoulder) is out again Friday, April 24, but he's hoping to return to the lineup as the designated hitter sometime this weekend. The hope is that he'll be back in right field around the middle of next week. Manager John Gibbons said Bautista would take some swings Friday in the cages.
Fantasy Tip: Bautista's ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) shoulder injury isn't believed to be serious, and he should avoid a DL trip. Once he's back in Toronto's starting lineup, he should be a viable FantasyScore weapon in daily games.
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 15:39:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Take a wait-and-see approach with Saunders ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) in the majority of formats, as he could be a little rusty initially. However, there is upside in the potent Toronto lineup, and Saunders boasts a nice power-speed combo. In deep mixed leagues, he could be worth a speculative grab if you need outfield help.
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 12:57:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With southpaw Drew Smyly on the hill, and making his season debut, Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is worth a speculative dice roll in FantasyScore contests Friday. He is hitting behind the teams top four hitters, and he has a .332/.371/.508 slash line against left-handed pitchers for his career.
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 10:15:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Bautista ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) might sit out this weekend to rest his troublesome shoulder. Danny Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is likely to benefit the most until Saunders returns from the disabled list this weekend. Valencia, though, is a low-end third base option that can probably be ignored by daily gamers.

Fantasy Tip: Thole doesn't have any worthwhile fantasy value, and he is starting because he specializes in catching the knuckleball and R.A. Dickey is on the hill.
Thu, 23 Apr 2015 18:06:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Donaldson ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) now has four home runs in his last six games after not hitting his first with the Blue Jays until April 16. Donaldson entered the game hitting .322 on the season, and is certainly living up to his high expectations.
Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:48:58 -0700
Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring Thursday, April 23, and the move was backdated to April 22. C Josh Thole was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo.
Fantasy Tip: With Navarro and Jose Bautista (shoulder) currently sidelined, Danny Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) and Ryan Goins should see consistent playing time, but both are nothing more than dice rolls at FantasyScore in the right matchups.
