Blue Jays | Edwin Encarnacion returning, Anthony Gose out

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 11:26:20 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Anthony Gose will be optioned to Triple-A Buffalo Friday, Aug. 15, to make room for 1B Edwin Encarnacion's (quadriceps) return from the disabled list. General manager Alex Anthopoulos confirmed that Encarnacion will be in the lineup against the Chicago White Sox Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion's return will definitely be welcomed by all of his owners. Get him back into your lineups immediately. Juan Francisco, who has struggled mightily recently, will now find it even harder to find playing time. He could be downgraded to a platoon option at third base with Danny Valencia.

Blue Jays | Adam Lind activated

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 08:27:22 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays activated 1B Adam Lind (foot) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Get Lind back into your lineups immediately. His return probably will hurt the playing time of Juan Francisco, who will now likely enter into some sort of platoon with Danny Valencia at third base when Lind isn't used as the designated hitter.

Blue Jays | Brett Lawrie goes on DL

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 10:30:49 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays have placed 3B Brett Lawrie (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list because of an oblique strain. The team also recalled RP Rob Rasmussen from Triple-A Buffalo.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie goes right back on the disabled list and could miss the rest of the month of August. Munenori Kawasaki and Danny Valencia could receive time at the position, but Juan Francisco could become the regular starter when Adam Lind returns to the lineup. Kawasaki and Valencia probably are short-term options in AL-only leagues while Francisco could help in some mixed leagues.

Blue Jays | Adam Lind with fractured foot

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 16:58:55 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (foot) has a fracture in his foot, and he's expected to miss six to eight weeks. He will go for a second opinion.

Fantasy Tip: Lind will land on the DL, obviously. He was hitting .320 but with only four homers this season. With Edwin Encarnacion also out, Juan Francisco will likely see the majority of starts at first base. Francisco should already be owned in the majority of leagues.
