Blue Jays | Russell Martin back in two-hole

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 07:26:06 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin will bat second in the order Sunday, April 26, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

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.

Blue Jays | Jose Reyes out of lineup

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 07:24:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes is out of the lineup Sunday, April 26, against the Tampa Bay Rays. Reyes is presumably just getting a day of rest. 2B Devon Travis will move up to the leadoff spot.

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.

Blue Jays | Miguel Castro hitting rookie wall?

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 05:51:45 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Miguel Castro has a loss and two blown saves over his last six appearances with a 4.76 ERA.

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.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis extends to 11

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 15:13:57 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis extended his hitting streak to 11 games Saturday, April 25.

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.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista hopes to play this weekend

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 15:50:10 -0700

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.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders returning Saturday

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 15:39:51 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders (knee) is expected to make his season debut against the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, April 25.

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.

Blue Jays | Danny Valencia playing hot corner

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 12:57:27 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Danny Valencia is starting at third base and batting fifth against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, April 24.

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.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista returning Monday?

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 10:15:39 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (shoulder) is hoping that he can serve as the designated hitter by Monday, April 27. OF Michael Saunders (knee) will not join the team Friday, April 24.

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.

Blue Jays | Josh Thole starting Friday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 20:58:44 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Josh Thole is expected to make his season debut Friday, April 24, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

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.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson mashes home run

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 18:06:43 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson hit a 469 foot home run Thursday, April 23, against the Baltimore Orioles. It was the longest home run of Donaldson's career by 21 feet.

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.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro to DL

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.

Blue Jays | Manager hopeful Jose Bautista avoids DL

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 13:38:01 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (shoulder) will return as a designated hitter before playing right field, and manager John Gibbons is optimistic Bautista will avoid the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: This is a situation to continue to keep tabs on. While returning as the DH seems positive, if Bautista isn't healthy enough to play the field, is he healthy enough to be in your FantasyScore lineups? Potentially in favorable matchups, but the smart money might be to take a wait-and-see approach with Bautista in daily contests. In seasonal leagues, you'll want to return him to your lineups immediately, though.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro has torn hamstring

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 13:34:09 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro (hamstring) has a "nice little tear" in his hamstring, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for a more detailed report on the severity of Navarro's ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) injury and the recovery timeline. When healthy and in the lineup, Navarro is a nice speculative play in FantasyScore contests. His lack of playing time has made him an AL-only option at this point, though.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista remains out

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 12:36:51 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (shoulder) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. 3B Danny Valencia is starting in left field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap), despite being off to a good start (6-for-10), isn't attractive to FantasyScore users on this getaway day.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis back with bang

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 22:27:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (ribs) returned to the lineup Wednesday, April 22, against the Baltimore Orioles and he had three hits, including the go-ahead home run.

Fantasy Tip: Travis has four homers to pull into a three-way lead with more heralded sluggers Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion. At $2,800 (or 5.6% of cap) he is a solid source of power at a cheap price.
