Blue Jays | Russell Martin back in lineup Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 10:10:14 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is back in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Sunday, June 26. In addition, OF Junior Lake is batting eighth and playing right field, while INF Darwin Barney is batting ninth and playing shortstop. SS Troy Tulowitzki will bat sixth and serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is batting .264 with three home runs and 14 RBI in 53 at-bats this month and makes a viable catching option today. Barney has cooled off at the plate following a hot start and is hitting .250 through 60 at-bats in June. Lake has only had two at-bats since joining the Jays and should be strictly viewed as desperation salary cap relief.

Blue Jays | Junior Lake recalled from Buffalo

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 13:47:55 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Junior Lake was recalled from Class AAA Buffalo Friday, June 24. In a corresponding move, OF Darrell Ceciliani was optioned to Buffalo.

Fantasy Tip: Lake owns an underwhelming .244/.328/.387 slash line through 271 plate appearances with Buffalo, and he doesn't project to see much playing time with Toronto. He is a desperation add in all fantasy formats. Ceciliani should be replaced in all leagues.

Orioles | Adam Jones out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 12:55:07 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones (back) is not starting Tuesday, Sept. 22, against the Washington Nationals. OF Junior Lake has replaced Jones and will hit eighth against Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has back spasms and should be sidelined as long as possible. This might be an injury that prevents you from starting Jones the rest of the season. Lake carries no FantasyScore value.

Orioles | No Adam Jones Monday

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 13:26:55 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Adam Jones is not in the starting lineup Monday, Sept. 21. OF Junior Lake is starting in center field and hitting eighth against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only three hits (all doubles) in 19 at-bats for the O's this year and should be avoided on FantasyScore, especially while hitting low in the batting order.

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 15:28:13 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) owns a career .287/.335/.454 slash line against lefties, and he checks out as an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Monday.

Orioles | Junior Lake recalled, starting vs. Angels

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 15:16:09 -0700

Baltimore Orioles OF Junior Lake was recalled from Class AAA Norfolk Friday, Aug. 7, and he is batting eighth as the designated hitter against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney.

Fantasy Tip: Lake has shown upside in the past, especially against southpaws, but he has also been strikeout prone (30.8% career K%). Taking a wait-and-see approach with Lake in the majority of fantasy formats is advised, including FantasyScore. After all, there might not be consistent at-bats for him with his new team.

Cubs | Junior Lake batting seventh

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:41:35 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is batting seventh and playing right field against Cincinnati Reds SP Michael Lorenzen Thursday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Thursday. For the season, he has a .236/.276/.364 slash line, but it isn't a daunting matchup against Lorenzen. At the cap hit, there is upside with Lake.

Cubs | Junior Lake out Wednesday

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 11:52:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 10. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and hitting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene. OF Mike Baxter is serving as the designated hitter and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) isn't a bad deep sleeper play when he's in the lineup, and he's hitting .433 (13-for-30) in limited at-bats due to injuries this year. However, a spot at the bottom of the order probably means you should avoid him. Baxter ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) can also be avoided today.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia batting fifth

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 15:13:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia will start in left field and bat fifth in the lineup Tuesday, June 9, against the Detroit Tigers. OF Chris Coghlan comes out of the lineup, while OF Junior Lake will drop down to the seventh spot in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has nine hits in 19 plate appearances against righties this season, as he goes up against RHP Anibal Sanchez. Just one of Denorfia's nine hits have been of the extra-base variety, but Denorfia is hitting high enough in the order to be considered a cheap flier.

Cubs | Junior Lake will not start

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 10:13:41 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 7. OF Chris Denorfia will be the starting right fielder and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the near future. Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will be playing his first game since being activated from the disabled list, so owners may want to avoid him for the time being.
