Blue Jays | Chris Colabello hitting cleanup

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:36:38 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Chris Colabello is hitting cleanup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Colabello ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has been a nice surprise for Toronto this year, hitting .357 (20-for-56) with a home run and seven RBI. He's also hitting right-handers to the tune of a .333/.381/.436 slash line. Continue riding him while he's hot at FantasyScore as a value play.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin resting Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:35:29 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 21. C Josh Thole is starting behind the plate and hitting sixth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker.

Fantasy Tip: Thole ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is used mainly for his defensive skills behind the dish, and he has become R.A. Dickey's personal catcher. Ignore him at FantasyScore for his bat.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis remains out

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:27:41 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 21. 2B Steven Tolleson is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker.

Fantasy Tip: Travis may require a DL stint if he doesn't improve quickly. Keep an eye on his progress. Tolleson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has just eight hits in 34 at-bats (.235) and should be considered a desperation sleeper pick at FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Jose Reyes to begin rehab Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 08:55:32 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (ribs) will start his rehab assignment with Class AAA Buffalo (N.Y.) Thursday, May 21, and he could return from the disabled list Monday, May 25, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) hasn't seen live pitching in several weeks, so he could struggle at the plate initially upon his return next week. Plan to ease him back into FantasyScore lineups. Ryan Goins ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is expected to return to a reserve role off the bench.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison takes first loss

Wed, 20 May 2015 19:24:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison lost for the first time in nine starts this season, Wednesday, May 20, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Hutchison allowed four runs and six hits in six and two-third innings.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) gave up a solo home run to Mike Trout but seemed to rebound before things fell apart in the seventh inning, Hutchison will continue to be a FantasyScore option, thanks to his potential for high strikeout totals.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders bone bruise confirmed

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:51:51 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders (knee) had his bone bruise confirmed, and doctors said his body needs a conservative six weeks to acclimate to the loss of the meniscus.

Fantasy Tip: Saunders ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) would not be back at this rate until the All-Star break, so it is safe to go ahead and drop him in all of your leagues.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis still out of lineup

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:29:11 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, May 20. 2B Steven Tolleson is starting at the keystone and batting ninth Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: This will be the fourth consecutive game Travis ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has missed with the injury. During his absence, Tolleson ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gone 4-for-11 with three runs and a stolen base. Tolleson should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore contests Wednesday. Continue to check back for updates on Travis' status.

Blue Jays | Jose Reyes eyeing a Monday return

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:22:11 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (ribs) is tentatively expected to rejoin the Blue Jays Monday, May 25, for their series against the Chicago White Sox, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Monitor Reyes' ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) progress during his rehab assignment and be ready to return him to your fantasy lineups when he rejoins the team. Given the nature of his injury, there is potential his power and speed upside is limited i nthe early going of his return. FantasyScore players will want to take a wait-and-see approach with Reyes initially.

Blue Jays | Danny Valencia starting in left field

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:10:29 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Danny Valencia is batting seventh and starting in left field against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has drastic handedness splits, and he struggles against righties (.182/.217/.318 slash line this season). He is a great option against southpaws, but with Jered Weaver on the hill Wednesday, it isn't an ideal to utilize Valencia in FantasyScore contests.

Blue Jays | Jose Reyes takes batting practice

Tue, 19 May 2015 19:53:44 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (ribs) took batting practice for the third straight day Tuesday, May 19, and is expected to start a rehab assignment later this week.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) likely will be need a few rehab games before he is able to return but could be back with the team at some point next week. Reyes will be a risky option on FantasyScore when he returns to the lineup, and owners may want to see him play before using him.

Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez sets career high

Tue, 19 May 2015 18:24:58 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez pitched a career high seven and a third innings Tuesday, May 19, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) allowed six hits, three walks and three runs, while striking out five. It was the most impressive outing of the season for Sanchez in many aspects. FantasyScore owners will want to see him duplicate this success before investing.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis remains sidelined

Tue, 19 May 2015 13:21:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 19. 2B Steven Tolleson is starting at second base and hitting eighth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago.

Fantasy Tip: Travis isn't expected to need a DL stint, but keep an eye on his progress. Tolleson ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has eight hits in 29 at-bats (.276) for Toronto, and his offensive upside is extremely limited, making him a weak second base option in daily games such as FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson has owned lefties

Tue, 19 May 2015 09:55:13 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson has a .967 career OPS against left-handed pitchers. However, he has just one hit in 13 career at-bats against the starter Tuesday, May 19, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of Donaldson's ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) career numbers against Santiago in a small sample size, he should still be a safe and solid option at FantasyScore tonight.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista has big game Monday

Mon, 18 May 2015 15:46:27 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista went 3-for-4 with three runs, three RBI, a walk and his seventh home run of the season in a victor Monday, May 18. He raised his average to .235.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has been slow out of the gates in 2015, and an ailing right shoulder may be partially to blame. However, his shoulder is getting healthier, and it may coincide with improved results with the stick. He hasn't been worth the price at FantasyScore lately, but if he starts to heat up, that could change quickly.

Blue Jays | Jose Reyes to start rehab games soon

Mon, 18 May 2015 10:36:10 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Jose Reyes (oblique) will likely start a minor league rehab assignment in the next couple of days, according to manager John Gibbons.

Fantasy Tip: Reyes ($4,500, 9.2% of cap) could be nearing his return from the disabled list if he doesn't have any setbacks while on his rehab assignment. You may want to ease him back into your FantasyScore lineups when he's back, though. Ryan Goins ($2,400, 4.8% of cap), who is a low-end infield play, will likely go back to a bench role when Reyes is ready.
