Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson has calf issue

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:11:05 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson (calf), who is taking the day off Friday, May 22, has been playing on a "bad calf," according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson's ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) appears minor, and he should be fine to return to the lineup tomorrow. Danny Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been playing well for the Jays, hitting .339 (20-for-59) with a home run and 10 RBI, but he should be avoided tonight at FantasyScore in a matchup against Seattle Mariners star Felix Hernandez.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis ready in 15 days?

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:06:15 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder), who received a cortisone shot for his ailing shoulder, is expected to be ready in 15 days when his disabled list stint is up, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Travis ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) slowed down offensively after his shoulder injury after a strong start in April. He will return to the starting keystone duties when he's back from the DL. In the meantime, Munenori Kawasaki and Steven Tolleson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) could split repetitions at second base. Both infielders are low-end FantasyScore plays, though.

Blue Jays | Munenori Kawasaki hitting ninth Friday

Fri, 22 May 2015 11:41:43 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Munenori Kawasaki is in the lineup Friday, May 22, against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Steve Tolleson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should be the regular starter with Devon Travis out due to a wrist injury, but it appears Tolleson is getting a night off. This is the season debut for Kawasaki, so hold off on starting him until you get a decent sample size.

Blue Jays | Ezequiel Carrera batting leadoff

Fri, 22 May 2015 11:35:53 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ezequiel Carrera is in the leadoff spot Friday, May 22, against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Carrera ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been placed in the leadoff spot repeatedly this season, but he is in a slump at the moment with a .167 average in his last week. Until he snaps out of it, Carrera should be avoided.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson out of lineup Friday

Fri, 22 May 2015 11:34:13 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 22. Danny Valencia is at third base and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has not had a single day off this season, so no better time than now to do it. Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been a fairly successful low-cost alternative, with a .350 average (7-for-20) and one home run in his last six games.

Blue Jays | Jose Reyes plays in rehab game

Fri, 22 May 2015 10:56:03 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (ribs) went 1-for-4 and played six innings at shortstop in his first rehab game with Class AAA Buffalo Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Toronto is expecting Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) to come off the DL Monday, and Ryan Goins ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) should return to a bench role. Plan on playing it cautious with Reyes at FantasyScore upon his return, since he hasn't seen major league pitching in quite some time.

Blue Jays | Daniel Norris close to returning?

Fri, 22 May 2015 10:48:12 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Daniel Norris is close to being recalled to the major leagues. He struck out nine with Class AAA Buffalo in his innings in his third start for them while allowing three runs and five hits while walking three, and he'll pitch again Friday, May 22. Manager John Gibbons said the Blue Jays are looking to bring him back.

Fantasy Tip: Norris had a 3.86 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in five starts for the Jays before being sent down this year. The most likely scenario is that he'd replace Marco Estrada in the rotation. Check to see if Norris was dropped in deep mixed and AL-only leagues and scoop him up if he's available. You'll want to wait at least a start or two before trusting him at FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis succumbs to DL

Fri, 22 May 2015 08:58:03 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Travis ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) last played a full game last Friday while nursing a shoulder ailment. Continue stashing him everywhere. In the meantime, Steven Tolleson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) will continue to man second base for the Jays. He's hitting .278 (10-for-36) with just two RBI and is a low-end keystone option at FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Chris Colabello hitting cleanup

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:36:38 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Chris Colabello is hitting cleanup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Colabello ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has been a nice surprise for Toronto this year, hitting .357 (20-for-56) with a home run and seven RBI. He's also hitting right-handers to the tune of a .333/.381/.436 slash line. Continue riding him while he's hot at FantasyScore as a value play.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin resting Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:35:29 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 21. C Josh Thole is starting behind the plate and hitting sixth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker.

Fantasy Tip: Thole ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is used mainly for his defensive skills behind the dish, and he has become R.A. Dickey's personal catcher. Ignore him at FantasyScore for his bat.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis remains out

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:27:41 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 21. 2B Steven Tolleson is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker.

Fantasy Tip: Travis may require a DL stint if he doesn't improve quickly. Keep an eye on his progress. Tolleson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has just eight hits in 34 at-bats (.235) and should be considered a desperation sleeper pick at FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Jose Reyes to begin rehab Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 08:55:32 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (ribs) will start his rehab assignment with Class AAA Buffalo (N.Y.) Thursday, May 21, and he could return from the disabled list Monday, May 25, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) hasn't seen live pitching in several weeks, so he could struggle at the plate initially upon his return next week. Plan to ease him back into FantasyScore lineups. Ryan Goins ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is expected to return to a reserve role off the bench.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison takes first loss

Wed, 20 May 2015 19:24:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison lost for the first time in nine starts this season, Wednesday, May 20, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Hutchison allowed four runs and six hits in six and two-third innings.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) gave up a solo home run to Mike Trout but seemed to rebound before things fell apart in the seventh inning, Hutchison will continue to be a FantasyScore option, thanks to his potential for high strikeout totals.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders bone bruise confirmed

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:51:51 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders (knee) had his bone bruise confirmed, and doctors said his body needs a conservative six weeks to acclimate to the loss of the meniscus.

Fantasy Tip: Saunders ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) would not be back at this rate until the All-Star break, so it is safe to go ahead and drop him in all of your leagues.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis still out of lineup

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:29:11 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, May 20. 2B Steven Tolleson is starting at the keystone and batting ninth Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: This will be the fourth consecutive game Travis ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has missed with the injury. During his absence, Tolleson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone 4-for-11 with three runs and a stolen base. Tolleson should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore contests Wednesday. Continue to check back for updates on Travis' status.
