Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Monday, July 7, that OFs Darin Mastroianni and Colby Rasmus will be used in a platoon for "the next little while," at least until someone gets hot.
Fantasy Tip: Rasmus came into this league with so much potential, but he has been unable to catch fire in the majors. He has been a major fantasy disappointment, and this could be the low point. He is only worth retaining in AL-only fantasy play as a reserve right now.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion (quadriceps) likely will be placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained quadriceps and is expected to miss two to four weeks. The timetable could change based on evaluation over the next few days.
Fantasy Tip: Jose Bautista and Adam Lind may both see time at first base while Encarnacion is out. Darin Mastroianni, Nolan Reimold and Cole Gillespie could be options in the outfield if Bautista spends most of his time at first base. All three probably will be AL-only options at this point.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion (quadriceps) has been diagnosed with a strained quadriceps after he underwent an MRI Sunday, July 6, and there is no timetable with his return. OF Jose Bautista (hamstring) started at first base Sunday and could receive more starts there since it likely would be easier on his injured hamstring. 1B Adam Lind could serve as the designated hitter since he is dealing with a foot injury.
Fantasy Tip: If Bautista spends a majority of his time at first base while Encarnacion is out, Darin Mastroianni, Nolan Reimold and Cole Gillespie could all see time in the outfield. All three likely would be limited be AL-only leagues, but owners looking for speed could consider adding Mastroianni while owners wanting more power could consider Reimold.

The Toronto Blue Jays recalled OF Darin Mastroianni from Triple-A Buffalo, and optioned RP Rob Rasmussen to Triple-A Buffalo Saturday, June 28.
Fantasy Tip: Mastroianni has AL-only appeal, because he is can contribute in multiple categories. He could even has slight mixed value for desperate owners in cavernous leagues. Mastroianni has hit .293 in the minors this year.

The Minnesota Twins will place OF Josh Willingham (wrist) on the disabled list Saturday, April 12, and will call up RP Michael Tonkin in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: More good news for the owners of Chris Colabello, as he'll continue to see consistent playing time with Willingham and Oswaldo Arcia (wrist) out. Darin Mastroianni is also worth owning, in AL-only leagues, with the Twinkies thin in the outfield.
