Blue Jays | LaTroy Hawkins on the move

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 22:04:47 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays acquired RP LaTroy Hawkins from the Colorado Rockies Monday, July 27, along with SS Troy Tulowitzki in exchange for SS Jose Reyes and minor-leaguers.

Fantasy Tip: Hawkins is worth adding in AL-only fantasy leagues, as he is likely to work as a late-innings setup man and he should get a decent share of holds. He could even work into a ninth-inning role with the Toronto closer situation in flux.

Blue Jays | Toronto acquires Troy Tulowitzki

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 20:47:04 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays acquired SS Troy Tulowitzki from the Colorado Rockies Monday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain which players are involved in the deal, as this is just breaking. Tulowitzki will remain a must-start FantasyScore option, even with the move out of hitter-friendly Coors Field to the more neutral Rogers Centre.

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 13:05:39 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ezequiel Carrera is starting in left field and batting seventh against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker Sunday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Carrera ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) only has three hits in 31 at-bats (.097) during the month of July and is 0-for-3 against Walker in his career. He can be ignored for FantasyScore purposes.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis not starting Sunday

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 13:04:06 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker Sunday, July 26. 2B Ryan Goins will play the keystone position and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Goins ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is 3-for-5 against Walker in his career and is 3-for-8 this month, making this a highly favorable matchup for him.

Blue Jays | Justin Smoak returns to action

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 12:59:10 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak is in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker Sunday, July 26, batting fifth. 1B Chris Colabello is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Smoak ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is only 8-for-38 (.211) this month and is hitless in thee career at-bats versus Walker, so FantasyScore owners should look elsewhere for first base options.

Blue Jays | Roberto Osuna closes it out

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 19:11:07 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Roberto Osuna worked a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his fifth save in six chances in an 8-6 win over the Seattle Mariners Saturday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Osuna hasn't been perfect, but he looks like Toronto's best option to handle the ninth inning for now. He is worth owning in all formats as long as he is the closer.

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 11:32:02 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is batting .467 (7-for-15) over the past week with two home runs and six RBIs and makes a safe FantasyScore catching option.

Blue Jays | TOR interested in Joakim Soria

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 18:58:03 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays had a scout on hand to watch Detroit Tigers CL Joakim Soria during his appearance against the Seattle Mariners Thursday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: If the Jays acquire Soria, it is almost certain that he would step into the closer's role immediately. Entering play Friday, July 24, he was 3-1 with 22 saves and a 3.00 ERA through 41 games.

Blue Jays | TOR interested in Dan Haren

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 18:42:46 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays have expressed interest in Miami Marlins SP Dan Haren.

Fantasy Tip: Haren ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) is 7-5 with a 3.46 ERA through 19 starts this season and is starting against the San Diego Padres Friday, July 24. A move to the hitter-friendly American League East would likely decrease his fantasy value but FantasyScore owners can continue using him with confidence in most matchups for the time being.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders not close

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 16:26:32 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders (knee) has made some progress in his recovery from a knee injury but is not close to a return. Manager John Gibbons said Saunders likely will not return until September.

Fantasy Tip: Saunders ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) likely will have to participate in drills and go on a rehab assignment before he is able to return to the team. Saunders likely will not have much fantasy value for the rest of the season.

Blue Jays | Toronto unable to add Carlos Carrasco

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 16:16:07 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco was a trade target for the Toronto Blue Jays, but the two teams were not able to reach an agreement.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) could be moved before the trade deadline, but he will remain with the Indians for now. He has allowed two or fewer runs in four of his last five starts and has struck out at least five batters in his last seven starts. Carrasco is scheduled to start against the Chicago White Sox in his next outing and could be a solid option on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison scratched Friday

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:58:54 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison (illness) has been scratched from his start Friday, July 24. SP Marco Estrada will be the starting pitcher against the Seattle Mariners Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is expected to start Saturday, so he should be fine. Estrada ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) has allowed two runs or fewer in each of his last five starts and could be a solid option on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Chris Colabello not in the lineup

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:51:51 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Chris Colabello is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Friday, July 24. OF Danny Valencia will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Colabello ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and will be back in the lineup soon. Valencia ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in eight of his last 12 games with three home runs and seven RBI during that span. Valencia has a tough matchup but could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin on the bench

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:44:31 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Friday, July 24. C Dioner Navarro will start at catcher and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Navarro ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting only .227 in limited playing time this season and probably is not a top starting option on FantasyScore.
