Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson continues tear

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 14:18:00 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run during the Blue Jays' 5-1 win over the Minnesota Twins Monday, Aug. 3.

Fantasy Tip: It was Donaldson's ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) 27th long fly of the season and fifth over his last 11 games. During the recent surge, he also has seven runs and 13 RBI. Donaldson has emerged as an elite hitter this season, and he is in consideration for FantasyScore usage nightly, but especially against lefties and in favorable matchups.

Blue Jays | David Price shines in debut with Jays

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 12:50:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price allowed one earned run on three hits and two walks while striking out 11 batters through eight innings during Toronto's 5-1 win over the Minnesota Twins Monday, Aug. 3.

Fantasy Tip: With Price ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) starting for the top offensive team in baseball, there is a lot to like about his fantasy stock going forward. He projects as a top-tier arm through the rest of the season and lock as a No. 1 fantasy arm for your rotation. FantasyScore players can also consider starting Price whenever he takes the hill.

Blue Jays | Roberto Osuna could have night off

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 09:03:43 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays RP Roberto Osuna is likely to have the day off Monday, Aug. 3. RP Aaron Sanchez could be used in a save situation, and RP Mark Lowe could pitch in a late-inning spot, too.

Fantasy Tip: Osuna could be rested a bit more often after the acquisition of Lowe, which makes Toronto's bullpen much stronger. Sanchez probably won't see enough save chances to be worth owning aside from the deepest of leagues.

Blue Jays | David Price undefeated in Toronto

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 08:31:44 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price is 7-0 with a 3.86 ERA in nine career starts at Rogers Centre. He will make his debut with the team against the Minnesota Twins Monday, Aug. 3.

Fantasy Tip: The Twins have struggled on the road this year, with a 29th-ranked OPS (.631), making Price ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) a very safe and solid FantasyScore option Monday night.

Blue Jays | Chris Colabello starting at first

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 08:27:44 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Chris Colabello will start at first base and hit fifth in the order Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Kansas City Royals and RHP Edinson Volquez. 1B Justin Smoak comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Colabello ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has a three-game hit streak, including a pinch-hit single Saturday. Colabello isn't the Blue Jays' best FantasyScore option, but he'll be hitting in an excellent position to drive in runs.

Blue Jays | Ben Revere down to ninth

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 08:24:08 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ben Revere will hit ninth in the order Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Kansas City Royals and RHP Edinson Volquez, while SS Troy Tulowitzki returns to the leadoff position.

Fantasy Tip: Revere ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) went 0-for-5 in his Blue Jays debut, but he'll now be in a position to hit in front of the like of Tulo and Josh Donaldson. As long as Revere can start getting on base, is fantasy value will soar.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista homers twice

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 18:48:49 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs and three runs scored in a 7-6 loss to the Kansas City Royals Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) still has plenty of power, but he is batting just .223 this year. Make sure he draws a favorable matchup or is riding a hot streak before paying his hefty price tag at FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Munenori Kawasaki starting at 2B

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 09:24:36 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Munenori Kawasaki will start at second base against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Saturday, Aug. 1, and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Kawasaki has not done much at the plate in his limited playing time with Toronto this season. He likely will be a bench player while he is with the team and is not a fantasy option.

Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki out of the lineup

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 09:14:20 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Saturday, Aug. 1. 2B Ryan Goins will start at shortstop and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Tulowitzki ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the next day. Goins ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has three hits in his last five games and probably should be avoided by owners on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin on the bench

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 09:04:04 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Saturday, Aug. 1. C Dioner Navarro will start at catcher and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Navarro ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) hit only .192 in limited playing time in July and probably is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Ben Revere leading off

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 08:46:03 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ben Revere will start in left field against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Saturday, Aug. 1, and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Revere ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will stay in the leadoff position, but it would help his fantasy value if he did. Revere is coming off a solid July and should be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Ben Revere to play every day

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 08:04:12 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ben Revere will be the team's starting left fielder.

Fantasy Tip: Revere ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) was acquired by the Blue Jays at the trade deadline and will be in the lineup most of the time. He has seven hits in his last six games and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Danny Valencia, Ezeqiuel Carrera cut

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 07:42:43 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Danny Valencia and Ezequiel Carrera were designated for assignment Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Both players are being moved because the team added Ben Revere ($4,200, 8.4% of cap), who should see solid playing time and could be an option on FantasyScore. Valencia ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and Carrera ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) could join other teams in the near future, but owners should avoid them for the time being.

Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion back in lineup

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:14:24 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion (finger) is back in the starting lineup as the designated hitter and is hitting cleanup against Kansas City Royals SP Johnny Cueto Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) does have 19 home runs and 56 RBI, but otherwise he's been a bit of a disappointment for the Blue Jays with a .238 average (81-for-341), and he's hitting .227 in the month of July. In his first game back after sitting out several games against ace Cueto, Encarnacion isn't the most appealing FantasyScore player to choose from.

Blue Jays | Ben Revere destined for bottom of order

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 14:18:34 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Toronto Blue Jays OF Ben Revere will bat at the bottom of the batting order and platoon in left field, according to manager John Gibbons. Gibbons did not reveal who Revere would platoon with, though.

Fantasy Tip: Don't fret hitting in the bottom of the lineup because Revere ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will still be batting in front of Toronto's best hitters. He receives a modest upgrade with the move to the Jays, although, he might receive fewer at-bats, which could mitigate the boost his new surroundings provide. It is somewhat of a wait-and-see situation. Expect one of Danny Valencia ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) and Chris Colabello ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) to be the platoon partner.
