Blue Jays | Justin Smoak not starting

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 09:04:47 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Sunday, June 19. 1B Edwin Encarnacion will start at first base Sunday. 3B Josh Donaldson will serve as the designated hitter, while 2B Darwin Barney will start at third base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Barney has been a bit inconsistent at the plate over the last few weeks and has four hits in his last six games. Barney can be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues but probably should be avoided in most leagues.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis out again

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 12:16:13 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis is out of the starting lineup again Friday, June 17. 2B Darwin Barney is starting at second base and is hitting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright.

Fantasy Tip: Travis has now sat the last two games, and he's been a disappointment with a .213/.241/.347 slash line, two home runs and 10 RBI in 20 games after starting the year late due to an injury. It's unclear if he'll continue to lose playing time to Barney, but it's safe to say you should avoid him until he picks things up at the plate. Barney is a light hitter and is a desperation pick in DFS tonight.

Blue Jays | Justin Smoak, Devon Travis not playing

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 12:54:01 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak and 2B Devon Travis are not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 16. 2B Darwin Barney is at the keystone and is batting seventh against Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola.

Fantasy Tip: Smoak remains out with no DH in a National League park, but he should return to the lineup Friday and has become a fantasy asset in mostly all fantasy leagues with everyday playing time. Travis has struggled to find his pre-injury form from 2015 after returning to the DL. Barney has held his own this year (.295), but he has limited power and offensive upside and remains more of a low-end daily consideration.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin, Devon Travis playing

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 08:25:16 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin and 2B Devon Travis are back in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Sunday, June 12. In addition, INF Darwin Barney will bat ninth and play third base, while 3B Josh Donaldson serves as the designated hitter. 1B Justin Smoak is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is batting .254 with four home runs and 10 RBI over the past four weeks after a horrendous start and has gotten his average for the season above the Mendoza line (.204). Travis is just 3-for-33 (.091) over the past two weeks and should be avoided in DFS for now. Barney is batting .320 this year over 42 games, including a .408 mark at Rogers Centre, and makes an excellent source of salary cap relief.

Blue Jays | Two sitting for Toronto

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 09:32:16 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin and 2B Devon Travis is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright Saturday, June 11. 2B Darwin Barney will start at second base, while 2B Ryan Goins will start at shortstop and is batting eighth. C Josh Thole will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Goins is hitting only .163 in limited playing time this season and is not a strong fantasy option. Thole has also struggled at the plate in 2016 and can be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Blue Jays | Darwin Barney filling in admirably

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 22:06:51 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays INF Darwin Barney continues to fill in for the injured SS Troy Tulowitzki (quadriceps). Barney went 2-for-3 Monday, June 6, against the Detroit Tigers and is 12-for-28 (.429) since May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Barney is a singles hitter, but the average is impressive nonetheless. He can certainly help rotisserie owners in AL-only fantasy leagues looking for a bump in batting average.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson returns to action

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 09:44:11 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson is back in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Sunday, June 5, batting second and serving as the designated hitter. INF Matt Dominguez will bat eighth and play third base, with INF Darwin Barney playing shortstop and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Dominguez is hitless in seven at-bats with the Jays in 2016 and should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier. Barney is 5-for-16 (.313) over the past week and is hitting .320 overall this year, making him a productive source of cap relief in DFS contests this afternoon.

Blue Jays | Josh Donaldson receiving day off

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 10:55:18 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Josh Donaldson is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Saturday, June 4. INF Darwin Barney will bat eighth and play the hot corner, while INF Ryan Goins will start at shortstop and bat ninth. In addition, C Russell Martin is back in the lineup as the No. 6 hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson is probably receiving an off day because the club is facing a knuckleballer, so he should be removed from all fantasy lineups. Barney is batting .314 over the last four weeks and .386 versus righties, making him a productive source of cap relief in DFS. Martin has also played better recently, going 8-for-33 with a double, three home runs and six RBI over the last two weeks. Goins can be avoided in all fantasy formats this afternoon.

Blue Jays | Darwin Barney has big game

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 20:36:30 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays INF Darwin Barney went 3-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored Wednesday, June 1, against the New York Yankees to push his batting average to .344.

Fantasy Tip: Barney isn't going to pile up the fantasy points since he is a singles hitter at the bottom of the lineup, but he will help some in AL-only rotisserie leagues for his high average. He has hit safely in five straight, collecting nine hits in the past 17 at-bats.

Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki on the bench

Sat, 28 May 2016 08:25:29 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Saturday, May 28. 2B Darwin Barney will start at shortstop and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Barney is hitting .311 in limited playing time this month but has gone hitless in his last six at-bats. Barney has some value in daily fantasy leagues, but owners should be able to find better starting options to use.
