Jose Bautista to hit leadoff for Jays

Jose Bautista will replace Kevin Pillar as the Blue Jays' leadoff hitter moving forward, manager John Gibbons announced Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Gibbons is looking to spark the offense by returning Bautista to the leadoff spot, where he batted in 40 games last season. Both Bautista and Pillar have been slumping badly, but Bautista is more adept at drawing walks, so the move does make some sense from a baseball perspective. From a fantasy perspective, it probably hurts Pillar more than it helps Bautista, who had been batting third. Regardless, Bautista will need to get hot again before he's worth starting in fantasy leagues.

Jose Bautista hits solo home run

Jose Bautista went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Monday against the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact

After a slow start, Bautista is now up to 12 homers, putting him on pace for 28 on the season. He has yet to recover from his awful April, and is still batting just .225, but you can expect better production for the rest of the season.

Jose Bautista hitless again

Jose Bautista went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact

It's been a rollercoaster season for Bautista, who hit .317 with nine homers and 21 RBIs in May, but has hit a combined .158 with two homers and nine RBI in April and June. The end result places Bautista outside the top 50 outfielders in standard Yahoo roto leagues. He deserves the benefit of the doubt after his huge May, but it might be worth benching him until he shows some signs of life again.

Jose Bautista scuffling in June

After a torrid May that brought him back to fantasy relevance, Jose Bautista is scuffling a bit in June. He's batting just .121 with one home run and one RBI in the month.

Fantasy Impact

This is just how it's going to work with Bautista at this point, as he remains a major power threat who is prone to deep slumps. If you own Bautista, try not to look too much at the day-to-day stats, and feel confident that he will give you what you had hoped for by the end of the season.

Jose Bautista drops a 1-for-15 weekend

Jose Bautista was terrible this weekend versus the Yankees, going 1-for-15 with a single, a walk, run and seven strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact

Bautista is streaky, and we might be seeing one of his valleys developing right now. Stash him on the bench until we wakes up again.
