Blue Jays | Mark Buehrle considering retirement?

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 11:23:04 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle is reportedly considering retiring at the end of the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: The 36-year-old Buehrle recently picked up his 200th career victory and is continuing to pitch effectively in his 16th MLB season, with a 2-0 record and a 3.75 ERA through his first two outings this year.

Blue Jays | Danny Valencia starting at 3B

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 08:28:01 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Danny Valencia will start at third base against the Atlanta Braves Saturday, April 18, since 3B Josh Donaldson is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has received limited plate appearances this season and has two hits in his six at bats. Owners on FantasyScore likely will be able to find better options to use.

Blue Jays | Steven Tolleson in starting lineup

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 08:21:53 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Steven Tolleson will be the starting shortstop against the Atlanta Braves Saturday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: Tolleson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) likely will be filling in at shortstop while Jose Reyes (rib) is out. He is only 1-for-5 at the plate this season and likely will not be a great option on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Jose Reyes not playing

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 08:12:23 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (rib) is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is not expected to play in either of the next two games because of his cracked rib. Owners on FantasyScore should keep him out of their lineup until more is known about a possible timetable.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson heating up

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 20:32:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson hit his first two home runs of the season against the Atlanta Braves Friday, April 17, and he is 8-for-17 with five runs scored and six RBIs over his last four games.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has raised his average from .192 to .302 during the stretch, and after a slow start, Donaldson is thriving with his new team. Stick with Donaldson's hot bat at FantasyScore until he gives you reason to look elsewhere.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis delivers atop the lineup

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 20:17:34 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis went 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored in an 8-7 loss to the Atlanta Braves Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Travis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) moved to the top of the lineup with Jose Reyes (rib) out, and he continued his hot start. With Reyes expected to miss a couple more games, Travis should continue make a strong option at FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders not ready yet

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:03:34 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders (knee, hamstring) will rest again Friday, April 17, and then serve as the designated hitter for Single-A Dunedin Saturday, April 18. He will not rejoin the Blue Jays on their current home stand.

Fantasy Tip: Saunders ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) could return to the Blue Jays late next week if everything goes according to plan. When he's back, he could be in a platoon situation with Kevin Pillar in left field. Saunders will be a FantasyScore option mainly against right-handed pitchers.

Blue Jays | Jose Reyes could avoid DL

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:51:31 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (rib), who is dealing with a small crack at the end of his rib on his left side, will see how he's feeling Tuesday, April 21, before the team decides if he needs to go on the disabled list. Reyes also has a muscle strain in the same area as the cracked rib, and it's the more serious injury. He will sit out all weekend against the Atlanta Braves. Reyes said the doctors told him his cracked rib cannot get any worse. If he stays off the DL, manager John Gibbons said Reyes could only face left-handed pitching for a while, since his injury bothers him mainly when he bats left-handed.

Fantasy Tip: It seems like there's still a good chance that Reyes ($5,300, 10.6% of career) will land on the DL. Until next week, Ryan Goins is likely to start at shortstop. He's batting ninth in the order Friday night and is a weak FantasyScore option.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis leading off

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 11:04:39 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis is hitting leadoff against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran Friday, April 17, with SS Jose Reyes (rib) out.

Fantasy Tip: With Reyes out this weekend at least and likely to head to the disabled list, Travis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) should benefit by moving up to leadoff in his absence. The rookie second baseman is off to a fine start, too, hitting .371 (13-for-35) with two home runs and 10 RBI. He gains more FantasyScore intrigue in the short term atop Toronto's dangerous lineup.

Blue Jays | Jose Reyes unlikely for this weekend

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 09:01:42 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (rib) is unlikely to play at all this weekend against the Atlanta Braves due to a rib fracture. He'll be re-evaluated to determine if he needs a disabled list stint Friday, April 17, according to multiple reports. Reyes has been bothered by the injury for a few days, and it affects him most swinging from the left side. INF Steve Tolleson was already expected to start at shortstop Saturday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes will likely need to go on the DL, so plan accordingly in standard leagues. Tolleson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Ryan Goins could split time at the 6 with Reyes sidelined, but both are weak FantasyScore plays.

Blue Jays | Jose Reyes has rib fracture

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 08:35:12 -0700

Updating previous reports, Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (rib) had an MRI reveal a small fracture of his rib. The team will determine if a DL stint is necessary Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: The odds lean towards Reyes landing on the DL. Ryan Goins will likely see an increase in playing time, but he's not worthy of FantasyScore usage yet.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis could lead off

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 20:42:05 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis is an option to hit lead off while SS Jose Reyes (rib) is out with an injury, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Travis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is off to a strong start despite batting at the bottom of the order, hitting .343 with two home runs, seven runs scored and seven RBIs. If he is moved to the top of the lineup, he would become a must-start bargain option at FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Jose Reyes to rest a few days

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 20:15:18 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (rib) said the pain in his left side had been becoming worse over the past two days prior to exiting the game early Thursday, April 16, and he said he will take a few days off to see if the pain subsides.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is hoping some rest will take care of the issue, but for a player that derives some of his value from his speed, it is best to avoid Reyes at FantasyScore until he proves he is 100% healthy.

Blue Jays | Ryan Goins replaces Jose Reyes

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 17:38:52 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Ryan Goins replaced SS Jose Reyes (ribs) Thursday, April 16, against the Tampa Bays Rays, after Reyes left the game due to soreness.

Fantasy Tip: Goins was called up by the Blue Jays Thursday and was forced into action sooner than the Jays would've hoped. Goins picked up a hit in his relief appearance, but is far better known for his defensive play. Goins hit just .188 in 193 major league plate appearances last season and should be left alone on FantasyScore as well as in season-long fantasy formats.

Blue Jays | Jose Reyes injured Thursday

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 15:54:18 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (rib) left the game early Thursday, April 16, with soreness in his left rib area.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes' ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) could be dealing with the dreaded oblique injury, and for a slow healer like himself, that could definitely lead to a trip to the disabled list. Stay tuned. Ryan Goins replaced Reyes at shortstop Thursday, and he'd likely be the main replacement at the 6 if Reyes needs to miss significant time.
