Blue Jays | Jose Bautista day-to-day

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 10:43:01 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (shoulder) said his shoulder is showing improvement but is still considered day-to-day. Bautista hopes to play in the upcoming series against the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has missed the last four games because of the injury but may be able to return in a few games. Bautista should be an option on FantasyScore once he returns to the lineup.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista hopes to play this weekend

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 15:50:10 -0700

Updating previous reports, Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (shoulder) is out again Friday, April 24, but he's hoping to return to the lineup as the designated hitter sometime this weekend. The hope is that he'll be back in right field around the middle of next week. Manager John Gibbons said Bautista would take some swings Friday in the cages.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista's ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) shoulder injury isn't believed to be serious, and he should avoid a DL trip. Once he's back in Toronto's starting lineup, he should be a viable FantasyScore weapon in daily games.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista returning Monday?

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 10:15:39 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (shoulder) is hoping that he can serve as the designated hitter by Monday, April 27. OF Michael Saunders (knee) will not join the team Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Bautista ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) might sit out this weekend to rest his troublesome shoulder. Danny Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is likely to benefit the most until Saunders returns from the disabled list this weekend. Valencia, though, is a low-end third base option that can probably be ignored by daily gamers.

Blue Jays | Manager hopeful Jose Bautista avoids DL

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 13:38:01 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (shoulder) will return as a designated hitter before playing right field, and manager John Gibbons is optimistic Bautista will avoid the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: This is a situation to continue to keep tabs on. While returning as the DH seems positive, if Bautista isn't healthy enough to play the field, is he healthy enough to be in your FantasyScore lineups? Potentially in favorable matchups, but the smart money might be to take a wait-and-see approach with Bautista in daily contests. In seasonal leagues, you'll want to return him to your lineups immediately, though.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista remains out

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 12:36:51 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (shoulder) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. 3B Danny Valencia is starting in left field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap), despite being off to a good start (6-for-10), isn't attractive to FantasyScore users on this getaway day.

Blue Jays | DL a possibility for Jose Bautista

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:22:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (shoulder) could land on the disabled list due to his right shoulder strain. Bautista aggravated his shoulder on a throw Tuesday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: While this is obviously a significant blow to Bautista's fantasy owners, the Jay Birds lineup looks a lot less potent without him, too. It is a negative for the entire team. Additionally, his replacements are fantasy afterthoughts. Expect Kevin Pillar ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Ryan Gonis to see nearly everyday at-bats while Bautista is out. Continue to check back for updates on Bautista's status.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista out vs. Baltimore

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:03:54 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Bautista ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) from your fantasy lineups Wednesday. The Jays play the series finale against Baltimore Thursday, April 23, so check back for updates on whether Bautista will return to the lineup for that game.

Fantasy Tip: Bautista ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) remains a top-tier outfield option for FantasyScore players, although ensure he is playing before locking him into your lineups.

Blue Jays | Jose Bautista leaves with cramps

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 14:13:58 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista left the game early Friday, April 10, with cramping in an undisclosed area.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't seem to be a big issue for Bautista ($5,800, 11.6% of cap), especially since the game was well out of hand when he left the game. He had three hits and four runs scored in the contest before departing. If Bautista is fine, he will remain a strong option for FantasyScore owners on a daily basis.

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 11:15:34 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista (hamstring) was scratched from the lineup Friday, March 6, with right hamstring tightness.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how serious Bautista's hamstring injury is, but it's likely that Toronto is being cautious this early in spring. Bautista remains a first-round fantasy baseball selection for his monster power in one of the best hitting environments in MLB.
