Toronto Blue Jays OF Kevin Pillar is not in the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, May 20. OF Ezequiel Carrera is starting in center field and batting sixth Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Pillar in all fantasy formats Wednesday. Carrera ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been used sparingly of late, and he is currently mired in a 1-for-14 funk. View Carrera as nothing more than a low-priced flier in FantasyScore contests Wednesday, and you should likely aim higher.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Kevin Pillar only has four hits in 35 at-bats over 10 games.
Fantasy Tip: Pillar ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) should be immediately stashed on your bench in deeper leagues. There is a chance he could lose playing time or even his starting job if these struggles continue.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Kevin Pillar will hit fifth Sunday, May 10, against the Boston Red Sox.
Fantasy Tip: Pillar ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) will have a much more ideal spot in the batting order against Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz. Pillar is a career .239-hitter against righties at the major league level but he'll be looking to take advantage of the shaky Buchholz. Pillar can be included in any Blue Jays stacks in GPP tournaments.

Fantasy Tip: Both Pillar ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Navarro ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) aren't great options for FantasyScore users on opening day while going up against Masahiro Tanaka.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Kevin Pillar (oblique) will be out for a week to 10 days following an oblique injury he suffered after sneezing.
Fantasy Tip: Some stuff is impossible to make up, but a sneeze was listed as the official reason why Pillar was hurt. Pillar is in competition for an outfield job in spring camp and appeared to have a chance before this setback. If he makes the team, Pillar could still have little fantasy value because he would likely platoon with the likes of Michael Saunders and Daniel Pompey.
