Blue Jays | Nagging injuries for several Jays

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 16:48:21 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson (leg), SS Troy Tulowitzki (hip) and OF Michael Saunders (hamstring) are all in the lineup despite minor nagging injuries Monday, April 25. Donaldson is resting a sore left leg as the designated hitter, and Saunders returns after a three-game absence with a sore hamstring. Donaldson is expected to play through his injury but might require more time as a DH.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson is last year's AL MVP and should remain in starting lineups in all fantasy formats. Tulo is off to a troubling .179 (12-for-67) start with 20 strikeouts, and you may want to consider benching him in traditional setups until he shows signs of life. Avoid him for now in daily contests. Saunders remains an undervalued commodity in mixed leagues while hitting in such a potent lineup on a regular basis.

Blue Jays | Justin Smoak out of the lineup

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:13:04 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez Monday, April 25. 2B Darwin Barney will start at third base and is batting eighth in the lineup. 1B Edwin Encarnacion will be the first baseman, while 3B Josh Donaldson will serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Barney has gone 4-for-7 with one home run and three RBI over the last two games and could be used in some daily fantasy leagues because of his recently play.

Blue Jays | Another banner day for Josh Donaldson

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 13:01:38 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson went 3-for-4, including his American League-leading seventh homer, and finished with four RBI and two runs scored against the Oakland Athletics on Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson's three-run blast capped a five-run second inning, while his RBI single in the eighth wrapped up a nine-run effort for the Blue Jays. The reigning AL MVP, who also leads the AL in RBI (19), has shown no drop-off from last year and is hitting .406 at home in 2016.

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 23:14:03 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson connected on his sixth home run of the season Wednesday, April 20, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson leads the American League with 14 RBIs, tied with Detroit Tigers C Jarrod Saltamacchia. Donaldson also has an impressive 1.033 OPS and is a must-have fantasy option in all leagues, obviously, and a great DFS play despite his high price tag.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson drives in three Thursday

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 18:44:56 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson is batting .325 with five home runs and 12 RBI through his first 10 games of the season. He is arguably the best third baseman in baseball and should be viewed as a high-end option in all fantasy formats.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson able to swipe base

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 23:47:19 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson (calf) was back in the field Tuesday, April 12, against the New York Yankees. He finished 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored while stealing his first base of the season.

Fantasy Tip: The stat line wasn't all that impressive, but the stolen base was important. It showed Donaldson is very confident in his calf and that he is 100 percent healthy again after a few days of being limited.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson back in the field

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 13:17:17 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson (calf) is starting at third base again against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Tuesday, April 12. That allows 1B Chris Colabello to start again, and he's hitting sixth in the batting order with 1B Edwin Encarnacion back in the designated hitter role.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson's calf scare hasn't hindered him, and he continues to swing a hot bat to begin the year. He should be started in all fantasy formats. Some folks may have forgotten about Colabello, so he could be a low-priced sneaky daily pick Tuesday.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson leaves the yard again

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 13:43:43 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson (calf) homered for the third time in four games in a win over the Boston Red Sox on Sunday, April 10. The reigning American League MVP, who went 2-for-4 and scored twice for the second consecutive contest, has hit safely in all seven games this season.

Fantasy Tip: Serving as the designated hitter seems to agree with Donaldson, who is 5-for-14 with a pair of homers since transitioning to that spot in an effort to rest his ailing calf. After one full week, the two-time All-Star is batting .310 with four home runs and nine RBI and living up to his top-five draft status.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson will be DH

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 07:22:10 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson (calf) will be the designated hitter against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Saturday, April 9, and is batting second. 2B Darwin Barney will start at third base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson is dealing with a calf injury but will remain in the starting lineup. He has produced at the plate over the first few games and should be a starter in all leagues. Barney has gone 2-for-4 so far this season but probably is not a great fantasy option in any league.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson homers again

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 21:08:07 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson hit a grand slam in an 8-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox Friday, April 8, and he has three home runs in his last four games.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson has yet to have a multi-hit game, but he has been making his hits count. He has four runs and eight RBI through five games and has eliminated any concern about his calf injury.
