Blue Jays | Jose Bautista snaps skid

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 16:54:33 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista went 2-for-3 with a double, a home run and three RBI during the Jays' 11-2 win over the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) was hitless over his previous 29 plate appearances entering the game, so it was a nice slump-busting afternoon for the slugger. Look for him to parlay the success into a nice hot streak and continue to view him as a solid outfield option in all fantasy formats.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista in a slump

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:29:19 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista is hitless in his last 29 plate appearances with four strikeouts dating back to June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has seen his average drop to .236 (57-for-242) as a result, but he still has 15 home runs and 50 RBI on the season. The power is still there, but it looks like we're starting to see a decline in his skills at age 34. Until he starts to show some signs of life in his bat, you should consider avoiding him on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista in RF

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 08:18:25 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (shoulder) is in right field for Game 1 of a doubleheader Tuesday, June 2. It will be his first game in right field since a shoulder injury limited him to DH in May.

Fantasy Tip: It's a great sign for Joey Bats, who was slated to return yesterday before rain foiled the game. At $5,500 (11.0% of cap), he's a daily consideration on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista returns to right field

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 13:05:41 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (shoulder) is starting in right field and batting third against the Washington Nationals Monday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: This will be Bautista's ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) first start in the outfield since Tuesday, April 21, as his throwing shoulder has been a hindrance defensively. He has improved at the dish since, though, and over the past 31 games, Bautista has 18 runs, three home runs, 20 RBI and a .916 OPS. While the homer total is a little low, the other counting stats and his .284 batting average are solid. Unlike past seasons, FantasyScore players cannot start Bautista with confidence nightly at his cap hit, and it isn't out of question to fade him outside of cherry-pick matchups.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista drives in five

Tue, 26 May 2015 21:38:01 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista went 3-for-4 with five RBI against the Chicago White Sox Tuesday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has been limited to being the designated hitter because of his shoulder injury, but he does not seem to be affected by the injury at the plate. Bautista is only hitting .231 this season but should be a starting option on FantasyScore for his power potential and ability to drive in runs.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista throws Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 17:44:59 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (shoulder) make about 25 throws Tuesday, May 26, and did not feel any pain in his shoulder. He started off at 40 feet and then moved to 90 feet. Bautista also fielded fly balls in the outfield during batting practice. Bautista received a cortisone shot Sunday, May 24, and could play in the outfield next week if he does not have any problems.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) can serve as the designated hitter for now but could be able to play in the outfield starting Monday, June 1. Owners should monitor his progress but may be a solid starting option if he is able to play with the injury.
