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 | Darwin Barney in lineup Sunday

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:17:54 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Darwin Barney is batting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp Sunday, April 24. 2B Ryan Goins is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Barney is 5-for-17 with a home run and three RBI in seven games this year. He should be viewed as an inexpensive middle infield option for daily contests.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders, Troy Tulowitzki out

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 14:06:32 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders and SS Troy Tulowitzki are not in the starting lineup Friday, April 22. OF Ezequiel Carrera is leading off and in left field, while 2B Ryan Goins is playing shortstop and hitting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray. Also, 2B Darwin Barney is at second base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Tulo's slow start (9-for-60, .150, with two homers) is very concerning given the fact that his numbers have been in decline since last year's trade to Toronto. Buying low on Tulo could be a big risk. Carrera, Goins and Barney are all light hitters and barely move the fantasy needle. If you're in the mood for a desperation flier in daily games, Carrera should be your pick.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders, Ryan Goins out

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 11:13:14 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders and 2B Ryan Goins are out of the starting lineup versus Boston Red Sox SP David Price Saturday, April 16. 2B Darwin Barney will bat eighth and play second base, while OF Ezequiel Carrera will bat ninth and play left field.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Barney nor Carrera should be viewed as viable options in daily fantasy leagues Saturday. Saunders and Goins are likely to return to action Sunday, April 17.

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 | Three Blue Jays draw starts

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 07:28:33 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Chris Colabello is hitting sixth, OF Ezequiel Carrera is hitting eighth and 2B Darwin Barney is hitting ninth Wednesday, April 6. OF Michael Saunders, 2B Ryan Goins and 1B Justin Smoak are not in the lineup against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Colabello is the only one worth a DFS buy at the right price today against Tampa Bay Rays lefty Matt Moore.

Blue Jays | Darwin Barney does damage

Tue, 01 Mar 2016 21:31:33 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Darwin Barney went 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles and five RBIs in his Grapefruit League debut against the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday, March 1.

Fantasy Tip: Welcome to the AL, Mr. Barney, even if it is just spring. Barney is competing for a utility job with the team and off to a grand start, as he can back up Devon Travis at second base and Troy Tulowitzki at shortstop. If he makes the team he is a decent AL-only addition for depth at middle infielder.

Blue Jays | Darwin Barney signs

Sat, 12 Dec 2015 00:52:38 -0800

The Toronto Blue Jays signed 2B Darwin Barney to a one-year, $1.05 million contract on Friday, Dec. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Barney carries little fantasy value himself, but he makes a decent late-round pick for your bench if you have Devon Travis. If Travis gets hurt, then Barney could play. Otherwise, leave him alone for draft purposes.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins won't play Monday

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 14:55:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ Monday, April 13. 2B Darwin Barney is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff for the Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Barney ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hit much better against lefties (.275) than righties (.226) in 2014, but he doesn't give daily owners much optimism, even while hitting leadoff. About the only reason to choose Barney tonight is to save yourself plenty of money at other positions.
