Jose Bautista limping to the finish

Jose Bautista went 1-for-5 with a strikeout on Friday against the Cubs. He is batting .214 on the season and just .203 in August.

Fantasy Impact

Although Bautista has shown glimpses of of his old self at points this season, it looks like age has truly caught up with him. That said, he is on pace for 27 home runs and 100 runs scored. But those contributions don't outweigh his abysmal batting average or lackluster RBI total.

Jose Bautista hits another homer

Jose Bautista went 1-for-3 with a home run and a stolen base in Thursday's 4-0 victory over the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact

That's now three home runs in the last four games for Bautista, who looks to finally be emerging from the awful slump he's been in since the end of May. Despite the hot power stretch, Bautista has just one multi-hit game this month and he's still striking out a lot, so owners probably shouldn't be expecting vintage Bautista production. But it certainly makes sense to get him in your lineup for now.

Jose Bautista hits two-run shot

Jose Bautista went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Bautista has now driven in two runs in back-to-back games, but the base hits have been few and far between for him this season. His 17 HRs and 49 RBIs aren't enough to make up for the putrid .215 batting average. He's far from a must-own unless/until he heats up again.

Jose Bautista with back-to-back hitless efforts

Jose Bautista finished 0-for-5 against the White Sox in a loss.

Fantasy Impact

Bautista also went 0-for-5 against the Angels over the weekend bringing his line down to .215/.324/.385 which is just not what you want from your lead-off hitter. With 16 home runs, 45 RBIs but an already whopping 109 strikeouts (which, even by his standards, is a lot), Bautista just isn't the fantasy performer he used to be.

Jose Bautista still slumping

Jose Bautista had another quiet day at the plate on Thursday, going 1-for-5 with a run scored and a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact

Bautista's huge May feels like a distant memory at this point -- and he's hit at or below the Mendoza line in April, June, and now July. The signs of decline have been clear over the last two seasons, particularly his rising strikeout rate. It wouldn't be a shock to see Bautista heat up again -- maybe a trade could inspire him -- but fantasy owners simply can't count on him anymore.
