Tue, 28 Jul 2015 20:10:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is 3-3 with a 3.95 ERA in 10 outings at home with a .198 opponent batting average, and 1-7 with a 5.14 ERA in 10 outings on the road with a .298 opponent batting average. Needless to say, he should only be used in FantasyScore when pitching at Rogers Centre.

Fantasy Tip: It's unlikely Martin ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will qualify at second base for those in seasonal fantasy leagues or in FantasyScore, but those in leagues with lax eligibility requirements could find him eligible at 2B/MI to give him extra value.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (hamstring) left the game Tuesday, July 28, against the Philadelphia Phillies due to an apparent right hamstring injury. He was running out a grounder and grabbed at the back of his leg.
Fantasy Tip: Bautista ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) could be headed to the 15-day disabled list if it is serious, but we'll know more when he is re-evaluated. The team also lost Devon Travis earlier in the game, which is likely not what they had in mind when they bolstered their lineup by adding Troy Tulowitzki Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Travis ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has been fantastic for FantasyScore players when healthy, but he has had some trouble staying healthy for long periods of time. Avoid him until he can officially return and prove his health in two full games without any lingering effects of his injury.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to avoid the brittle Travis ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in two full games without any setback. Danny Valencia ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) slid over from center field to second base, with Ezequiel Carrera ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) entering the game.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:39:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Goins ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely will start until Troy Tulowitzki joins the season and will go back to the bench. Goins has seen limited playing time this month and is not the best option on FantasyScore.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:29:02 -0700
Toronto Blue Jays OF Chris Colabello will serve as the designated hitter against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Warren Tuesday, July 28, and is batting fifth in the lineup. 1B Edwin Encarnacion will start at first base, while 1B Justin Smoak is on the bench.
Fantasy Tip: Colabello ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has only four hits in his last nine games and may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:18:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Travis ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) likely will remain in the No. 1 spot for now with the team trading Jose Reyes. He is hitting .364 with seven RBI this month and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 12:49:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Latos ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) has had 19 strikeouts in his past 20 innings and he appears to be coming around after a rough first-half start. He should make a fine addition to any team.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 12:43:44 -0700
The Toronto Blue Jays are looking at several pitchers in their quest to land a starter, according to baseball sources. Pitchers mentioned include Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija, Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake, Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco, Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers, San Diego Padres SP's Andrew Cashner and Tyson Ross.
Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays are trying long and hard to improve their starting pitching, and other pitchers like Mat Latos and Dan Haren are also on this list. The odds of the Blue Jays landing one of these starters might be quite nice, thanks to how wide the net is.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 11:03:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Tulowitzki ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) will be in the lineup tomorrow, but if he is, expect him to be near the heart of the order. Make sure he's in there before using him on FantasyScore. Tulo's fantasy value isn't likely to change all that much with the move. Devon Travis ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is likely to move back to the leadoff spot, which will give his fantasy value a nice boost, especially in daily games.

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki has "zero chance" of being flipped to a team like the San Diego Padres, according to a source. There has been speculation that the Blue Jays would flip him after trading for him Monday, July 27.
Fantasy Tip: Tulowitzki ($5,400, 10.8% of cap), who is hitting .300 (97-for-323) with 12 home runs and 53 RBI, doesn't see a wild increase or decrease in his fantasy value with his move to Toronto. He once again resides in a potent offensive lineup at a very nice hitter's park.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 07:59:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Kennedy ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) will lose some luster if he leaves Petco Park, especially for the American League. He's a midrange starter on FantasyScore.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 22:04:47 -0700
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.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 20:47:04 -0700
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.
