Blue Jays | Russell Martin on the bench

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:44:31 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Friday, July 24. C Dioner Navarro will start at catcher and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Navarro ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting only .227 in limited playing time this season and probably is not a top starting option on FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin sitting Sunday

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 07:35:13 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, July 19, against the Tampa Bay Rays. C Dioner Navarro will start behind the plate and hit fifth in the order against RHP Chris Archer.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is mustering a mere .230 average against right-handed pitching this season, and he should be avoided with a very difficult test against Archer.

Blue Jays | Chris Colabello out again

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 14:37:42 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Chris Colabello is not in the lineup for the second straight game Friday, July 10. C Russell Martin is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth, while C Dioner Navarro is catching and hitting seventh against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is typically a pretty safe FantasyScore catching option, and should be no different tonight. He has a .273 average (15-for-55) against southpaws this year. Navarro ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has struggled against lefties from the right side this year (.188-0-0 in 16 at-bats), and he's a low-end commodity this evening.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro in at DH

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 09:26:10 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija Thursday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) hits much better from the left side of the plate, and both of his home runs this year and all 11 of his RBI have come against right-handed pitchers. He's not a bad pick on FantasyScore if you're looking to save money at the catching spot.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro starting behind the dish

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 15:36:24 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks Wednesday, July 8. C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Navarro ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is just 2-for-13 against lefties this season, but it is a plus-matchup against Danks. FantasyScore players should view Navarro as an upside source of cap relief Wednesday.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin not in Friday lineup

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:55:02 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 3, against the Detroit Tigers. C Dioner Navarro is catching instead.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is getting a night off with some other lineup switches taking place, including Edwin Encarnacion at designated hitter. Go ahead and use Navarro ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) in FantasyScore.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro not in vs. lefty

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 14:17:20 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miler Thursday, July 2. OF Danny Valencia is starting in left field and hitting seventh, with OF Chris Colabello playing first base.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) could pay off as a nice sleeper pick on FantasyScore tonight because of his .380/.415/.480 slash line with an .895 OPS against southpaws in 50 at-bats this year. However, none of his four home runs this year have come against left-handers.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin not in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 12:46:34 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 30, against the Boston Red Sox. C Dioner Navarro is batting seventh. In addition, 3B Josh Donaldson is at designated hitter and 3B Danny Valencia is at third base.

Fantasy Tip: The lineup switches are in part because Martin ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) gets a night off after playing the entire week at catcher. Navarro ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is 3-for-15 in the last seven days and isn't really worth picking up at the moment. Valencia ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has lost a significant chunk of playing time and has little fantasy value.

Blue Jays | Russell Martin to be DH

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 08:11:16 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Russell Martin will serve as the designated hitter against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo Saturday, June 27. C Dioner Navarro will start at catcher and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is receiving a day off from catching but will try to help at the plate. Martin is hitting a solid .266 with four home runs and 13 RBI this month and could be a solid option on FantasyScore. Navarro ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has six hits and two home runs in his last three games and could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Blue Jays | Dioner Navarro out Friday

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 13:54:35 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays C Dioner Navarro is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. 1B Edwin Encarnacion is serving as the designated hitter and batting cleanup, while OF Chris Colabello is at first base. OF Ezequiel Carrera draws a start in left field and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Against Rangers starter Nick Martinez, all Blue Jays players are decent plays on FantasyScore tonight with the game in Toronto, a hitter-friendly environment.
