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.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman could rejoin rotation

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 17:16:00 -0700

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.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman ready for the next step

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.

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion extends hitting streak

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:48:48 -0700

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

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is out of the lineup Thursday, Aug. 27, with C Dioner Navarro hitting fifth.

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

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.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman set for rehab stint

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 16:33:32 -0700

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.

Blue Jays | Devin Travis needs more rest

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:38:12 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) saw a specialist and received another cortisone shot in a different area of his shoulder Tuesday, Aug. 25. He will require more rest before returning.

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.

Blue Jays | Marcus Stroman feeling good

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 09:54:19 -0700

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.

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion stays hot

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 19:06:13 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion went 4-for-4 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored in a 12-5 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, Aug. 23.

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.

Blue Jays | Ryan Goins playing second base

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 12:34:30 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Ryan Goins will bat ninth and play second base against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Sunday, Aug. 23.

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.

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 12:29:18 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Josh Thole is batting eighth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Sunday, Aug. 23. C Russell Martin is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Thole is making his first appearance at the major league level this season and is not available in FantasyScore. Remove Martin ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) from your daily lineups.
