Blue Jays | Jose Bautista has appeal heard

Thu, 26 May 2016 11:50:16 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista had his appeal heard Thursday, May 26, on his one-game suspension. There has been no announcement on it yet.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista is in the lineup Thursday, but that could just mean it'll be a day or two for an announcement on his appeal. He's leading off against CC Sabathia today, and he's a daily consideration in a good matchup.

Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki remains out

Thu, 26 May 2016 11:11:07 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki (quadriceps) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 26. 2B Darwin Barney is starting at shortstop and is batting ninth against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Tulo is still day-to-day and could return as soon as Friday. He was beginning to see consistent results at the plate, too, so make sure to get him back into all lineups when he's ready. Barney, despite a .319 average in 69 at-bats, doesn't move the fantasy needle enough to be anything more than a desperation daily pick.

Blue Jays | Marco Estrada earns second win

Wed, 25 May 2016 22:01:18 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada earned his second victory of the season on Wednesday, May 25, against the New York Yankees. Estrada, who hadn't won since April 10, allowed four hits and three runs in seven innings.

Fantasy Tip: Well, that was overdue. In the seven starts he made between his first and second victories, Estrada worked fewer than six frames just once and yielded one earned run four times. With any kind of support Estrada could have five wins by now and is doing enough with strikeouts and ratios to remain viable even without the Ws.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis makes 2016 debut

Wed, 25 May 2016 21:53:08 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis was in the starting lineup on Wednesday, May 25, marking the first time he played in the majors since July 28, 2015. He batted eighth and went 1-for-4 with a run scored.

Fantasy Tip: Travis opened eyes with his .304-8-35 line as a rookie and could find himself at the top of the order before too long. There's a lot of upside here, making Travis someone you should stash away before someone else does.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin goes deep twice

Wed, 25 May 2016 21:39:54 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin hit a pair of home runs against the New York Yankees on Wednesday, May 25. They were Martin's first two home runs of the season after he hit 23 with the Jays in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Martin inexplicably entered play on Wednesday with one extra-base hit in 122 at-bats before finding the cheap seats twice. Maybe this will get Martin going, as the veteran has long been a consistent source of power at the position -- 17.6 HRs, 63.4 RBI over his previous five campaigns. Keep an eye on him.

Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki considered day-to-day

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:52:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki (quadriceps) felt better than expected Wednesday, May 25, after leaving the game early with a quadriceps injury Tuesday, May 24. The Blue Jays will be cautious with him, and Tulowitzki is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Tulowitzki was just starting to turn it around at the dish with eight runs, three home runs, 10 RBI and a .313/.358/.604 slash line through his past 13 outings, so the injury comes at an unfortunate time. Expect Ryan Goins to take care of the 6 with Tulowitzki out, but it doesn't sound like Tulowitzki will miss much time, and Goins is a low-end fantasy option in all formats. Check back for updates.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis likely to lead off soon?

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:29:23 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis will be given a couple games to show "how he looks," and then he could move to the leadoff spot, manager John Gibbons said Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Travis returned a .304/.361/.498 slash line through 238 plate appearances last season, and setting the table for a potent offense stands to make him a strong option at the keystone going forward. Travis should be owned in all fantasy formats now that he is healthy and back with the big club.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis returning

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:59:25 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) is being recalled from his rehab assignment Wednesday, May 25, and will come off the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Travis figures to send Darwin Barney back to the bench, and he enters one of the most potent lineups in baseball. Travis hit .306 in nine rehab games, and there's no reason to wait to start him if you own him. He'll be a midrange option in DFS.

Blue Jays | R.A. Dickey suffers loss

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:30:35 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey allowed four runs on five hits in 6 2/3 innings against the New York Yankees Tuesday, May 24, to suffer his sixth loss of the season. He struck out seven batters and walked two during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Dickey has seen his ERA drop one run from the start of the month but still has a 4.60 ERA after allowing nine runs in his last two starts. He is scheduled to pitch against the Boston Red Sox in his next start, which makes him a risky option for owners.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis making progress

Tue, 24 May 2016 18:25:01 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) has performed well during his rehab assignment, but there is no official timetable for his return. There is a chance that Travis could be activated from the 15-day disabled list in time for the game against the Boston Red Sox Friday, May 27. Manager John Gibbons said Travis will be a candidate for the leadoff spot when he returns.

Fantasy Tip: Travis has missed the entire 2016 season but may be able to return in the near future. Travis posted solid numbers in 2015 and should be a decent option in deeper fantasy leagues. Ryan Goins will continue to start at second base until Travis returns but is not a strong fantasy option.

Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki exits with quad injury

Tue, 24 May 2016 17:48:31 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki (quadriceps) left the game with a quadriceps injury Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: This comes at a bad time because Tulowitzki was just starting to string together a hot streak with eight runs, three home runs, 10 RBI and a .313/.358/.604 slash line through his latest 13 games. Stay tuned for updates.

Blue Jays | No Russell Martin Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:59:03 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. C Josh Thole is behind the plate and is hitting ninth against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi.

Fantasy Tip: Thole has become the knuckleballer R.A. Dickey's personal catcher, so don't be alarmed that Martin is out today. Neither catcher has done much with the bat this year, though, so consider Thole one to avoid in all daily formats. He's batting .158 with six hits (one home run) in 38 at-bats.

Blue Jays | Justin Smoak out, Jimmy Paredes in

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:50:47 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. OF Jimmy Paredes is serving as the designated hitter and is batting sixth against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi. 1B Edwin Encarnacion is starting at first base and hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: Paredes has made a strong impression in his early days with the club and is hitting .400 (4-for-10) with a home run and two RBI. If he keeps it up, he could continue taking at-bats from Smoak. Paredes doesn't have much pop, though, and is mainly a depth piece in AL-only leagues.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson rips 11th home run

Sun, 22 May 2016 15:39:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson finished 1-for-4 with a solo shot against the Minnesota Twins on Sunday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson's home run was his second in the last three games, although he isn't exactly out of the woods yet in regards to the hitting slump that has caused his average to drop from .292 at the beginning of May to .250. The reigning AL MVP could turn it on at any time and should be expected to do so. The Blue Jays have an off-day on Monday, but Donaldson on Tuesday will face New York Yankees right-hander Nathan Eovaldi, who has yielded two home runs in 10 career at-bats against him.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista homers in third straight

Sun, 22 May 2016 15:25:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista continued to make himself comfortable atop the batting order Sunday, May 22, igniting a three-run first-inning against the Minnesota Twins with a leadoff home run.

Fantasy Tip: It turned out to be the only hit in five at-bats for Bautista, who finished the four-game series 5-for-17 with three homers and six RBI - all out of the leadoff spot. The six-time All-Star is still sporting an unsightly .230 average as most of the entire Blue Jays' offense appears to be in a funk. Still, the power potential makes Bautista impossible to sit in any league and his resume suggests his batting average will pick up soon enough. Keep him active in all leagues.
