Blue Jays | Devon Travis won't be out long

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 09:51:44 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) is expected to be out two weeks after missing a month with a shoulder injury earlier this year.

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.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis put on DL

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 09:27:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list Friday, July 31.

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.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis likely heading to DL

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 09:19:35 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) will likely land on the disabled list Friday, July 31, according to manager John Gibbons.

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.

Blue Jays | Toronto not in on Ben Revere

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 08:48:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is no longer on the Toronto Blue Jays' radar. The Phillies are talking to another team about Revere.

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.

Blue Jays | Toronto looking at Ben Revere

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 08:05:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is drawing interest from the Toronto Blue Jays, and talks between the two teams are heating up, according to sources.

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.

Blue Jays | Toronto not pursuing Carlos Carrasco

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 07:16:45 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco is no longer being pursued by the Toronto Blue Jays, according to a source.

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.

Blue Jays | Toronto considering small trades

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 17:47:29 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Thursday, July 30, the team continues to talk trades. "Right now we're working on some small things," said Anthopoulos.

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.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis receives injection

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:51:37 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) received a cortisone shot in his shoulder Wednesday, July 29, according to manager John Gibbons. Travis will rest and be re-evaluated Friday, July 31.

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.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis remains out

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:15:25 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) remains out of the lineup Thursday, July 30. 2B Ryan Goins is starting at second base and is batting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy.

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.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro draws into lineup

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:08:58 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro is catching and batting eighth against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Thursday, July 30. C Russell Martin is serving as the designated hitter and batting fifth.

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.

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion still sidelined

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:05:10 -0700

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.

Blue Jays | David Price acquired by Toronto

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:42:45 -0700

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.

Blue Jays | Talking to DET about David Price

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 19:09:27 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays have spoken with the Detroit Tigers about acquiring SP David Price, sources said Wednesday, July 29.

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.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey stays strong

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:55:28 -0700

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.

Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki wows in debut

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:54:42 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki excelled in his debut with the club Wednesday, July 29, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

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.
