Blue Jays | Michael Saunders resting vs. southpaw

Thu, 05 May 2016 13:01:18 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Derek Holland Thursday, May 5. OF Ezequiel Carrera is starting in left field and hitting ninth. Also, OF Kevin Pillar moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Carrera is more of a defensive player and should be ignored in all fantasy formats. Pillar's value takes a significant jump moving up to the leadoff spot in a potent offense. Consider him a sleeper selection in DFS action this evening.

Blue Jays | Justin Smoak out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 07:36:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Justin Smoak is out of the lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Sunday, May 1. DH/1B Edwin Encarnacion will play first base and bat fifth, with OF Jose Bautista batting third and serving as the designated hitter. OF Ezequiel Carrera will start in right field and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Smoak is just 3-for-19 at the plate since assuming Toronto's starting job at first base on a full-time basis and should continue to be viewed as a low-end option at the position in all fantasy formats going forward. Carrera is hitting .344 with three extra-base hits through his first 32 at-bats and is worthy of consideration as a value play in daily games this afternoon.

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:45:53 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Kevin Pillar is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez Monday, April 25. OF Ezequiel Carrera will start in center field and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Carrera is on a hot streak with seven hits and one RBI over his last three games. Carrera could be an attractive option for owners on daily fantasy leagues while he is on his hot streak.

Blue Jays | Ezequiel Carrera caps stellar weekend

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 14:00:49 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ezequiel Carrera went 2-for-4 with a solo homer on Sunday, April 24, and went 7-for-14 with four runs scored during his team's three-game series over the weekend with the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Regular leadoff hitter Michael Saunders is nursing a hamstring injury, but it is fair to wonder if Toronto will consider leaving Carrera atop the order after his strong showing against Oakland; he's at least done enough to make it worth a discussion in the Blue Jays' clubhouse. If the 27-year-old Venezuelan can wrestle some playing time away from Saunders and keep his spot as the leadoff hitter, he has immense run-scoring potential in Toronto's potent offense.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders not ready yet

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 08:53:37 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Carrera has only two hits in his last 13 at-bats and probably can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

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 | Jose Bautista takes a seat

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 08:15:54 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista is out of the lineup Thursday, Oct. 1, with OF Ezequiel Carrera hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: Carrera ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has hit .311 in 45 at-bats since the All-Star break and faces an inexperienced Tyler Wilson. Most of the Jays' bats are out of the lineup today, so hitting third doesn't hold the same weight in this lineup. He's a shot in the dark kind of flyer on FantasyScore today.
