News 
 Alejandro Kirk could be the Blue Jays backup catcher behind Danny Jansen based on his Spring Training performance.
Corbin Young

Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Edwin Rios "has earned more playing time at 3B," per Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.

Notes 
 Kirk has the bat to to be a fantasy asset if he can stay in the lineup, particularly with catcher eligibility. He is a career .315 hitter with a .918 OPS in the minors, and had a strong, albeit short, stint in the majors last year during when he had a .983 OPS in nine games. The biggest obstacle for Kirk is that the Blue Jays have two solid defensive catchers in Danny Jansen and Reese McGuire, and although they could put Kirk at DH, they have plenty of other options for that position. In other words, Kirk needs to hit and hit early to cement a lineup spot. If he does, he's got top-10 catcher potential pretty easily.
