Fantasy Tip: For as dominant as Price ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) has been in the regular season throughout his career, his postseason numbers are shockingly bad. He is 1-6 with a 4.79 ERA through 11 career playoff games, including six starts. Price was pitching on 11 days' rest, so rust could have been a factor Thursday.

Updating previous reports, Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson (head) and OF Jose Bautista (hamstring) are expected to be fine for Game 2 of the division series against the Texas Rangers Friday, Oct. 9. Donaldson passed his concussion tests. Bautista is dealing with right hamstring tightness. Both injuries are mild.
Fantasy Tip: The entire Blue Jays organization just let out a sigh of relief. Both Donaldson ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) and Bautista ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) are strong picks on FantasyScore tomorrow against another left-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Bautista's ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) injury as we learn more. It didn't look too serious initially, and reporters suggested it may have been a cramp. Regardless, this could be a huge blow to Toronto's offense coupled with the injury to Josh Donaldson (head). If both Bautista and Donaldson are out for Game 2, starting Cole Hamels ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) on FantasyScore will be much more acceptable.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) appeared to hit his head hard during a collision at second base while he was sliding. Check back for updates and official announcements from the team, but it is likely Donaldson is being tested for a concussion. Stay tuned.

Fantasy Tip: Price's ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) luck could change today with a high-scoring offense at his back at home, where he has pitched very well since being traded this summer. He's the most expensive pitcher on FantasyScore today, but he's worth paying up for against the Texas Rangers.
Thu, 08 Oct 2015 09:17:07 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Tulo ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has a lofty .407-1-4 line in 27 at-bats against Yovani Gallardo. However, he played just two games since Sept. 12 because of a shoulder injury. He's a risky play on FantasyScore in a light pool.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman will start in Game 2 of the division series against the Texas Rangers Friday, Oct. 9. SPs Marco Estrada and R.A. Dickey will pitch in Games 3 and 4, and it's unknown who will start Game 3.
Fantasy Tip: It's a miraculous accomplishment for a pitcher that tore the ACL in his knee earlier this year. The risk surrounding Stroman ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) is clear, as he's made only four starts this season, although the results were very encouraging with five runs allowed and 18 strikeouts in 27 innings last month. He's also extremely fresh, making him a risk/reward selection in the divisional round.
Tue, 06 Oct 2015 09:59:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Price ($9,600, 19.2% of cap) will be facing a very solid Texas ballclub in a hitter's environment, but the fact that he is well rested should make FantasyScore gamers more comfortable paying up with him. Price also has the majors' highest-scoring offense behind him.

Fantasy Tip: Two innings would give Buehrle ($6,900, 13.2% of cap) his 15th consecutive 200-inning season, which is an incredible mark. Don't rule him off the playoff roster just yet until it is official, either. Still, he is an unadvised fantasy option Sunday, though. For his career, Buehrle stands with 214 wins and a 3.81 ERA.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 20:24:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It is best to avoid Buehrle ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) at FantasyScore if he does start since he is unlikely to pitch deep into the game on such short rest. Hutchison ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) wouldn't be much better considering his struggles on the road this season.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 20:18:07 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) is rolling. Start him with confidence at FantasyScore in the season finale as the Blue Jays try to secure home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 12:06:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is 7-for-21 with two home runs and four RBIs versus Archer in his career. FantasyScore owners in search of an affordable catching option should consider using him tonight.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 11:52:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Smoak ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is batting .353 with two homers and six RBIs over the past week. He is 6-for-17 with a home run and three RBIs versus Archer in his career, so he is worthy of consideration for FantasyScore lineups today.

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Saturday, Oct. 3. INF Ryan Goins will play shortstop and bat eighth, while INF Cliff Pennington plays second base and bats ninth.
Fantasy Tip: This was a scheduled off day for Tulowitzki ($3,800, 7.6% of cap), who went 2-for-5 in his return to action Friday, Oct. 2. Goins ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is batting .474 over the past seven days and is worth considering as a FantasyScore value play, while Pennington ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 1-for-13 over the same stretch and should be ignored in FantasyScore.

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki (shoulder) went 2-for-5 with a double and a run scored Friday, Oct. 2, against the Tampa Bay Rays. It was his first game since suffering a left shoulder injury nearly three weeks ago.
Fantasy Tip: Tulowitzki ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will be out of the lineup Saturday, Oct. 3, but is expected to return to action the following day. FantasyScore owners should feel free to use him without any reservations Sunday.
