Fantasy Tip: There isn't a significant shift in value for Tulowitzki ($5,300, 10.6% of cap), except now he projects to have more RBI opportunities and potentially fewer chances to score runs. Revere ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is the big winner, as he'll grab an extra at-bat most games. If it is a permanent switch, Revere's value takes a huge step forward. Both batters are in play at FantasyScore Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: It was the first home run for Martin ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) since July 30, and he had managed just three RBI during the drought. The homer could be a sign that his hamstring injury is behind him, but you may want to wait until he has a few more good games before using him at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) extended his hitting streak to 24 games, and he is absolutely locked in at the plate right now. Find a way to make room for his salary at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: In addition to his hitting streak, Encarnacion ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has driven in at least one run in six straight games and has 14 RBI during the same stretch. Pay up for the slugger at FantasyScore while he is surging.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) could step into the starting rotation after he is finished with his minor league rehab assignment, according to manager John Gibbons. "The way it's going now, he might come up and start for us," he said.
Fantasy Tip: Stroman threw a simulated game Friday, Aug. 28, and is scheduled to make a rehab start for Class A Lansing Wednesday, Sept. 2. He has not pitched at all this year after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee during spring training. Owners in AL-only and deep mixed leagues will want to monitor Stroman's progress but should temper their expectations due to the severity of the injury he is recovering from.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:22:55 -0700
Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) said he "crushed it" during his 51-pitch sim game Friday, Aug. 28. He is expected to throw approximately 65 to 70 pitches for low-A Lansing Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Fantasy Tip: Stroman is determined to work his way back into the Toronto rotation, but fantasy owners should be cautious pinning their hopes to the youngster. There is a chance he makes a start or two in the final weeks of the season, but he may also pitch out of the bullpen. The Blue Jays will be cautious with the youngster, and it remains a situation to monitor.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the loss, Estrada ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) pitched well overall during the month of August, going 3-2 with a 2.06 ERA in five starts. He is scheduled to make his next start against the Cleveland Indians Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion went 1-for-4 with an RBI double against the Texas Rangers Thursday, Aug. 27, to extend his hitting streak to 22 games. It is the longest streak in the majors this season.
Fantasy Tip: During his streak, Encarnacion ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) has collected seven multi-hit games and his average has gone up 30 points, from .234 to .264. He should continue to be penciled into FantasyScore lineups for the foreseeable future.
Thu, 27 Aug 2015 09:21:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has a weak .221-3-17 line on the season and isn't a FantasyScore option against Yovani Gallardo.
Wed, 26 Aug 2015 23:02:14 -0700
Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion hit a grand slam Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Texas Rangers. He has now hit safely in 21 straight games, going 31-for-79 (.392) with seven homers, 24 RBIs and 19 runs scored during the streak.
Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is on fire lately and is an obvious must-start in FantasyScore while he is red hot.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) is tentatively scheduled to join low-A Lansing Wednesday, Sept. 2, and move up to Class AAA Buffalo Monday, Sept. 7, according to general manager Alex Anthopoulos.
Fantasy Tip: Stroman will first spin a simulated game Friday, Aug. 28, as he hopes to work his way back into the starting rotation. It may be a long shot, though, as the Blue Jays will be cautious with their prized young arm. It is a situation to monitor, but don't be surprised if Stroman pitches out of the bullpen.
Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:38:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Travis ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been an elite offensive contributor when in the lineup, but he has been limited to just 62 games. Continue to stash Travis in all formats, but if you need the roster flexibility to keep in contention in your seasonal league, he can be dropped in 12-team formats. It doesn't sound like Travis is coming back anytime soon.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) said he felt "great" after throwing a simulated game Monday, Aug. 24. He will throw another one Friday, Aug. 28, and then head to Class AAA Buffalo for some rehab starts.
Fantasy Tip: Stroman could return in September to make a handful of starts, but it's not set in stone. Keep an eye on his progress and consider adding him in deeper leagues if it looks like he'll re-enter the rotation down the stretch. He'll be a risky commodity on FantasyScore.
Sun, 23 Aug 2015 19:06:13 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) extended his hitting streak to 19 games, and he has three homers, nine RBI and eight runs scored over his last five games. He should be owned on a daily basis at FantasyScore until he cools off.
Sun, 23 Aug 2015 12:34:30 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Goins ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is batting .417 (5-for-12) against the Halos this season and is hitting .256 during the month of August. However, if you don't need the cap relief on FantasyScore, look for better options at the keystone position.
