Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman (knee) is expected to make one more rehab start for Class AAA Buffalo Monday, Sept. 7, after allowing just one hit and striking out seven in 4 2/3 scoreless innings for Class A Lansing Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Fantasy Tip: Stroman won't be able to make many starts once he returns to Toronto before the end of the regular season, and the Jays will likely be cautious with him, limiting his upside on FantasyScore. However, he should still be picked up immediately if he's available in AL-only formats.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) is a must-start FantasyScore play at home, especially since he leads the majors in run support and has dominated at Rogers Centre this season.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 22:51:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Goins ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has hit safely in a career-high 12 straight games, longest active streak in the majors. At this price level he is a solid play in FantasyScore until he cools off.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion was named American League Player of the Month for August for leading the majors with a .407 average, 22 extra-base hits, 79 total bases and a .919 slugging percentage.
Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) went hitless in three at-bats with a walk Wednesday, his second straight game without a hit after a 26-game run. Let him get back on track before trusting him again in FantasyScore at this high price level.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 22:46:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Donaldson ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) now has 111 RBIs on the season. He has emerged as one of the best, if not the best, third baseman options in FantasyScore.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 22:45:03 -0700
Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed one run, four hits and no walks with six strikeouts in a win Wednesday, Sept. 2, against the Cleveland Indians to even his record at 10-10. He threw just 92 pitches, including 68 for strikes, in his second complete game of the season.
Fantasy Tip: Dickey ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) is 7-0 since the All-Star break, going unbeaten in 10 straight outings dating back to July 9. He has re-emerged as a must-start FantasyScore option.

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.

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.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 22:49:14 -0700
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.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 22:48:36 -0700
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.
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.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 22:41:16 -0700
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.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 20:18:47 -0700
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.
Tue, 01 Sep 2015 12:54:06 -0700
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.

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.
