Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki, Russell Martin out

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 12:31:44 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki and C Russell Martin are not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 30. 2B Darwin Barney is starting at the 6 and is hitting eighth, while C Josh Thole starts again behind the plate and is batting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco.

Fantasy Tip: Normal off days for Tulo and Martin, so don't sound the alarm bells. Both Barney and Thole are less than ideal offensive producers and should be avoided in all fantasy formats, especially while rounding out the bottom of Toronto's lineup.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders, Russell Martin out

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 10:42:50 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders and C Russell Martin are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 29. OF Junior Lake is starting in right field and is hitting seventh, while C Josh Thole is behind the plate and batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like just a normal day off for both Saunders and Martin Wednesday. Lake has two hits in six at-bats with the Blue Jays, including a home run, but neither he nor Thole move the fantasy needle much at all. At best, they are desperation picks as deep sleepers in DFS today while at hitter-friendly Coors Field.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis, Josh Thole starting

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 10:05:23 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis is in the starting lineup versus Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo Saturday, June 18, batting eighth. In addition, C Josh Thole is starting behind the plate and batting ninth, with C Russell Martin receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Travis has been playing better recently following a slow start to the 2016 season. He is 8-for-20 with two doubles, a home run and five RBI over the past week and warrants consideration for daily fantasy lineups. Thole is batting just .105 through 57 at-bats and should be avoided in all formats.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin sitting vs. Phillies

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 12:54:36 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 13. C Josh Thole is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff Monday.

Fantasy Tip: After a slow start, Martin has 11 runs, five home runs, 13 RBI and a respectable .266/.359/.468 slash line. With his slump in the rear-view mirror, Martin is back to being a viable catching option in all leagues. Thole is 6-for-52 this season, and he shouldn't be considered for any fantasy formats Monday or going forward.

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 | Three Blue Jays take a seat

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 08:15:23 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin, OF Michael Saunders and 2B Devon Travis are out of the lineup Wednesday, June 8. OF Kevin Pillar moved up to hit fifth, OF Ezequiel Carrera is hitting sixth, SS Ryan Goins hits eighth and C Josh Thole is hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Pillar has pedestrian numbers, but he has the most daily appeal behind Joey Bats, Josh Donaldson, Edwin Encarnacion and Justin Smoak. Give Pillar a low-end look. Carrera has some fringe basement appeal as well. Pass on Goins and Thole against Jordan Zimmermann.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin takes a seat

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 13:43:10 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 3. C Josh Thole is doing the catching and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: Thole is Dickey's personal catcher, so nothing is surprising here. Thole should be one of the last catchers you consider in DFS, though, as he is batting a paltry .143 with a homer and RBI in 42 at-bats. He's also in a bad lefty-lefty matchup tonight.

Blue Jays | No Russell Martin Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:59:03 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. C Josh Thole is behind the plate and is hitting ninth against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi.

Fantasy Tip: Thole has become the knuckleballer R.A. Dickey's personal catcher, so don't be alarmed that Martin is out today. Neither catcher has done much with the bat this year, though, so consider Thole one to avoid in all daily formats. He's batting .158 with six hits (one home run) in 38 at-bats.
