Fantasy Tip: That's music to Travis' ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) owners' ears, and it's definitely reason to hang onto him in all leagues, especially since he's likely to return to the leadoff role in a revamped Toronto lineup when he's healthy. Ryan Goins will take over for Travis in the meantime, but he only has value in the deepest of leagues and isn't attractive in daily formats.

Fantasy Tip: It's Travis' second DL trip for the same shoulder. It's unclear how much time he'll miss this time around, but be patient and stash him in all leagues for now. Ryan Goins ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will see the bulk of the starts at second base in Travis' absence, but Goins is a weak fantasy option only for those in the deepest of leagues if you're desperate for middle infield help.

Fantasy Tip: It's an unfortunate break for Travis owners, as he was just getting ready to move back into the leadoff spot permanently after Jose Reyes was traded away. There's no timetable for how long Travis will be out, but hold onto him in all leagues for now. Ryan Goins ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will be the starting second baseman in the meantime, but he has little fantasy value because of his weak bat, and he should mainly be avoided on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: That other team could be the Baltimore Orioles, even after they just traded for Gerardo Parra. It's easy to see that Revere's ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) fantasy value would be on the rise if he leaves Philly for a contending team.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 08:05:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays are already the most potent offense in baseball, so adding Revere ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) would just be a cherry on top. It would definitely increase the fantasy value of Revere, too, as he'd be setting the table for an explosive offense.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 07:16:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Carrasco ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) could still be traded before the deadline after giving up just one run in a complete-game win over the Oakland Athletics last night. Despite a misleading 4.03 ERA, Carrasco has nasty stuff and is fanning 9.9 hitters per nine innings.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 17:47:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays could still use a fourth or fifth starter, and they've been linked to names such as Andrew Cashner of the San Diego Padres and Jonathan Niese of the New York Mets.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:51:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Travis ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) could wind up back on the DL for this shoulder problem. Make plans to be without him in a worst-case scenario, but keep him stashed in all formats. Ryan Goins isn't much of a fantasy replacement, aside from the deepest of AL-only leagues if you need middle infield help.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:15:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Travis may need to go back on the disabled list after reinjuring the same shoulder that cost him a DL stint earlier this year. He deserves to be held onto in all leagues. Goins ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is a light-hitting utility infielder with no offensive upside, making him a pick to avoid in daily games.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:08:58 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) isn't very strong against left-handed pitchers this season, going 4-for-19 (.211) with none of his two home runs, so he's not the strongest of catching options to choose from tonight on FantasyScore.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion (finger) remains out of the lineup Thursday, July 30. OF Chris Colabello is starting at first base again and is hitting cleanup against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy.
Fantasy Tip: Colabello ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has tailed off a bit at the plate of late, but he's still hitting .310 (18-for-58) with four of his nine home runs against southpaws this season. He's not a terrible choice as a value pick on FantasyScore tonight.

Detroit Tigers SP David Price is involved in a deal the Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to. SP Daniel Norris is part of the package headed to Detroit. The deal has been agreed upon, but it's unknown where the stage of the medicals are.
Fantasy Tip: Price ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) may take a small hit with the move to the hitter's park in Toronto. However, he remains a surefire SP1 on FantasyScore.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 19:09:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: A move north of the border would be a move back to the American League East for Price. He is a tremendous pitcher, but playing with that kind of offensive support would be huge for FantasyScore purposes.

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey picked up the win Wednesday, July 29, against the Philadelphia Phillies. Dickey pitched eight full innings, giving up seven hits and two unearned runs, while striking out four.
Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has gone at least six innings in four consecutive starts, while allowing two runs or fewer in each. Dickey's low strikeout rates keep his ceiling low, but he's been a safe FantasyScore option of late.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:54:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Tulo ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) hit a home run in his second at-bat of the game, and he finished 3-for-5 with two doubles, three runs scored and three RBI. With Devon Travis expected to go on the disabled list, Tulo can be expected to stick at the top of the Jays' lineup.
