Toronto Blue Jays 3B Danny Valencia will be given more playing time against right-handed pitchers, according to manager John Gibbons.
Fantasy Tip: Valencia has fleeting Al-only value as long as playing time is available. He could hit his way into the mixed league conversation, too. Brett Lawrie is out with an oblique injury, so third base is an option and Valencia can also play multiple positions.

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Danny Valencia is batting fifth and playing first base Friday, Aug. 8, against the Detroit Tigers.
Fantasy Tip: Valencia could be a high-risk, high-reward play tonight in daily games. He is a cheap option, however Anibal Sanchez is a difficult matchup.

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.

Toronto Blue Jays 3B Juan Francisco is not in the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 6. 3B Danny Valencia is starting at first base and INF Munenori Kawasaki is starting at the hot corner.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie's return means Danny Valencia's short-term value in AL-only leagues will take a big hit. Get Lawrie back into your weekly lineups this week.

The Toronto Blue Jays acquired 3B Danny Valencia from the Kansas City Royals Monday, July 28, in exchange for SP Liam Hendriks and Erik Kratz.
Fantasy Tip: Valencia could be in a platoon situation at third base for at least another couple weeks until Brett Lawrie returns from the DL. Take a look at Valencia in AL-only leagues.

Kansas City Royals DH Billy Butler (rest) is receiving the day off Wednesday, July 23. INF Danny Valencia is replacing him as designated hitter.
Fantasy Tip: Deactivate Butler in your daily transactions. Though Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana has been tough this year, Valencia, a platoon tool, could be a sneaky daily play against the southpaw.
