Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman sharp in rehab

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 19:13:17 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) worked 4 2/3 scoreless and hitless innings for Class A Lansing in his first minor-league rehab start Wednesday, Sept. 2. He walked one and struck out seven batters.

Fantasy Tip: Stroman was expected to miss the season originally, but he has fought back hard to return in 2015. He could very well end up back in the Toronto rotation if all goes well over the next week or so, giving FantasyScore players another good starter in the final week or so of the regular season.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin out again

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 12:15:23 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. C Josh Thole is starting and is batting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer.

Fantasy Tip: After being called up yesterday when rosters expand, Thole won't be available just yet on FantasyScore. He had seven hits in 31 at-bats earlier this year, and he'll be a bottom-barrel priced catcher not worth a look on FantasyScore when he's playing.

Blue Jays | Matt Hague coming up soon

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 22:49:14 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays will recall 3B Matt Hague from Class AAA Buffalo later in the month.

Fantasy Tip: Hague was the International League MVP in 2015 and could be a solid FantasyScore option down the stretch if he can draw a few starts.

Blue Jays | Ryan Goins extends hit streak

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 22:48:36 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Ryan Goins went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, walk and two runs scored Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Cleveland Indians to extend his hitting streak to a career-high 11 games.

Fantasy Tip: Goins ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is hitting .438 (14-for-32) during the 11-game hitting streak to raise his average from .220 to .246. Start him in FantasyScore at this low price.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey unbeaten since July 9

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 22:42:42 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey will make the start Wednesday, Sept. 2, against the Chicago White Sox. Dickey has won six straight decision, and he is unbeaten in nine starts since a loss July 9 against the White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) has re-emerged as a useful FantasyScore option thanks to his amazing run, but be careful since his last setback came against the Pale Hose.

Blue Jays | No update on Devon Travis

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 22:41:16 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) received a cortisone shot in his left shoulder last week. However, manager John Gibbons had no update on Travis' status Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to avoid Travis ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion's streak snapped

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 20:18:47 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion was hitless in two at-bats with a walk and a sacrifice fly Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Baltimore Orioles to snap a 26-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) remains a hot play in FantasyScore despite the hitless game. Keep rolling with the hitless games become more of a regular occurrence.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 12:54:06 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1, against the Cleveland Indians. C Dioner Navarro is hitting seventh against Indians SP Cody Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: With Edwin Encarnacion at DH and riding a 26-game hitting streak, the team does not want him out of the lineup. This means Navarro ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) can't DH and has to catch when he's in the game, so Martin ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has to sit. Navarro has little FantasyScore value for now as he is hitting .200 in the past week.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson, teammate make history

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 22:45:45 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson went 1-for-4 with a triple and a pair of RBIs Monday, Aug. 31, against the Cleveland Indians. He and 1B Edwin Encarnacion became the first set of teammates to post at least 35 RBI in a month since Bobby Doerr and Ted Williams with the 1950 Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) has emerged as a must-start FantasyScore option this season.

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion continues streak

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 22:44:24 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion finished 2-for-4 Monday, Aug. 31, against the Cleveland Indians, extending his hitting streak to 26 games. That's the longest streak in the majors this season. He had two streaks stopped at eight games: having at least one extra base hit and one RBI in each.

Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) is hitting .412 (40-for-97) with 11 homers, 35 RBIs and 24 runs scored during his impressive run. Keep rolling with him in FantasyScore until he cools off significantly.

Blue Jays | Justin Smoak sitting out

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:48:09 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Monday, Aug. 31. OF Chris Colabello will start at first base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Smoak ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Colabello ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is hitting .415 with four home runs and 10 RBI this month and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin heating up

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 17:14:28 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in a 9-2 win over the Detroit Tigers Sunday, Aug. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has homered in back-to-back games, and after going through a slump while dealing with a hamstring injury, it appears he is back on track. Thanks to Toronto's powerful lineup, Martin has as much upside as any catcher available at FantasyScore when he is swinging a hot bat.

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion sets club record

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 17:07:25 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in a 9-2 win over the Detroit Tigers Sunday, Aug. 30, and his 35 RBI this month are the most by one player in any month in franchise history.

Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) now has eight homers in his last 10 games, and he has at least one RBI in nine games during the same stretch. He is a must-start at FantasyScore until his hot streak comes to an end.

Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki dropped in order

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:13:28 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki is batting fifth against Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon Sunday, Aug. 30. OF Ben Revere is batting first Sunday.

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.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin ends homer drought

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 18:24:22 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin went 1-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a walk in a 15-1 win against the Detroit Tigers Saturday, Aug. 29.

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.
