Blue Jays | Marco Estrada looks to stay hot

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:13:17 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada is scheduled to pitch Tuesday, June 30, against the Boston Red Sox. He has taken a no-hitter into the eighth inning in each of his past two starts, and won each of his past four decisions while staying unbeaten since May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Estrada ($6,300; or 12.6% of cap) has emerged as a must-start FantasyScore option thanks to his amazing run lately, perhaps the best of his career.

Blue Jays | Mid-July return for Aaron Sanchez?

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:12:34 -0700

Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez (back) is scheduled to throw from a mound Wednesday, July 1, and he is expected back by mid-July barring any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Sanchez ($4,600; or 9.2% of cap) will return to the rotation or a middle relief role, so avoid him in FantasyScore until his role becomes clear and he can prove his health in an appearance or two without any setbacks.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey cannot solve Boston

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:12:06 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed three runs and six hits over six innings in a loss against the Boston Red Sox Monday, June 29. He fell to 0-3 with a 5.76 ERA in four outings against the Red Sox this season.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($4,000; or 8.0% of cap) was a little better Monday, but he is still 3-8 with a 4.85 ERA overall this season. Avoid him in FantasyScore until he starts to show some consistency.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez remains on schedule

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:45:53 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez (lat) felt fine after he long tossed at Dunedin, Fla. Monday, June 29, and he is still set to throw his scheduled bullpen session Wednesday, July 1, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Not only is there no clear timeline when Sanchez ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will return, there is an outside chance he returns and pitches out of the bullpen, too. He isn't worth stashing outside of deep mixed and AL-only formats. FantasyScore players will want to be careful with utilizing Sanchez until he proves he is healthy and fares well on the hill.

Blue Jays | Roberto Osuna picks up the save

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 16:29:36 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Roberto Osuna picked up his second save in the last three games allowing one hit and striking out two in 1 1/3 innings against the Texas Rangers Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Osuna is a big part of the committee Toronto is using to close out at games, and he is definitely worth grabbing if you are hunting for saves. He has 42 strikeouts in 35 2/3 innings, so he can provide some value even on nights when handle the ninth inning.

Blue Jays | Chris Colabello out Sunday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 07:14:14 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Chris Colabello is out of the starting lineup Sunday, June 28, against the Texas Rangers. OF Ezequiel Carrera will start in left field and hit seventh in the order against RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Carrera ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has reverse splits this season, that have the left-handed hitter crushing southpaws for a .429 batting average through 14 plate appearances. Carrera is still hitting a respectable .279 against righties, and he'll offer cap relief for FantasyScore owners in GPP tournaments.

Blue Jays | Matt Boyd will start again

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 05:44:35 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Matt Boyd will make another start, according to manager John Gibbons Saturday, June 27. Boyd's next turn in the rotation would be Thursday, July 2, against the Boston Red Sox, if the Jays' stay on schedule.

Fantasy Tip: Boyd racked up seven strikeouts and didn't walk a single batter in his major league debut Saturday, against the Texas Rangers. Boyd allowed four earned runs off three Rangers' homers, leading to the 4-0 loss. With his 33.3% home run to fly ball ratio likely to normalize next time out, Boyd can be used in GPP tournaments.

Blue Jays | Johan Santana ends comeback attempt

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 20:04:44 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Johan Santana has announced that he has ended his comeback attempt.

Fantasy Tip: The two-time Cy Young winner hasn't pitched since 2012, and it seems unlikely that the former elite fantasy starter will ever make it back to the majors, let alone have fantasy relevance.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin to be DH

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 08:11:16 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin will serve as the designated hitter against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo Saturday, June 27. C Dioner Navarro will start at catcher and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is receiving a day off from catching but will try to help at the plate. Martin is hitting a solid .266 with four home runs and 13 RBI this month and could be a solid option on FantasyScore. Navarro ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has six hits and two home runs in his last three games and could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion homers twice

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 20:53:58 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion went 3-for-5 with a grand slam and a solo home run in a 12-2 win over the Texas Rangers Friday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is providing his typical power numbers, but his .245 average highlights is inconsistency. He is a bit of a high-risk, high-reward play at FantasyScore, but he can carry a lineup on the right night.

Blue Jays | Matt Boyd to start Saturday

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:34:17 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Matt Boyd is expected to make his major league debut and start against the Texas Rangers Saturday, June 27. Boyd had a 1.26 ERA and 0.80 WHIP in 12 Class AA starts and two Class AAA starts this year.

Fantasy Tip: Boyd will be a cheap pitching commodity on FantasyScore tomorrow if he's starting, but you should look to avoid him in his major league debut in a hitter-friendly environment against a team that has picked it up with the sticks in June.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis hitting ninth in return

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:04:34 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis is hitting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez Friday, June 26, in his first game back from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Travis ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) was a big fantasy baseball contributor before his injury, and he was often the team's leadoff hitter earlier this year. He's expected to hit near the bottom of the order for the foreseeable future now, though, which will devalue him a bit in daily games. Play Travis at your own risk tonight as a contrarian play with many likely to overlook him.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro out Friday

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 13:54:35 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. 1B Edwin Encarnacion is serving as the designated hitter and batting cleanup, while OF Chris Colabello is at first base. OF Ezequiel Carrera draws a start in left field and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Against Rangers starter Nick Martinez, all Blue Jays players are decent plays on FantasyScore tonight with the game in Toronto, a hitter-friendly environment.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis activated from DL

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 12:02:23 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) was activated from the disabled list Friday, June 26, the team announced.

Fantasy Tip: Travis ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) was an early-season surprise, but fantasy owners will want to be patient with him initially, as he has missed a lot of time. Additionally, his FantasyScore price reflects his strong start, so beware of spending up for him at this point. Travis will also return to the lower third of the batting order, so there is potential his value will take a hit there, too. Travis should be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Blue Jays | Steve Delabar with a save

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 15:55:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Steve Delabar recorded his first save of the season in an extra-inning affair against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, June 24. He struck out two in his inning of work after RPs Roberto Osuna and Brett Cecil already worked scoreless outings.

Fantasy Tip: Osuna is likely to be the first option in save situations for the Jays after they demoted Cecil from the role yesterday, but with the game tied in the ninth, Osuna was used to keep the game knotted Wednesday. Delabar is worth an add for saves-hungry owners in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, though.
