Jose Bautista to start at third base upon call up

Jose Bautista, a recent addition to the Braves organization, will assume third base duties when he is promoted from Triple-A Gwinnett, possibly in a week or so.

Fantasy Impact

The Braves needed a power-hitter and signed Bautista to a minor-league deal recently. It's a positive move for the team, as Johan Camargo and Ryan Flaherty will serve in utility roles, giving the team a solid bench with much-needed flexibility. Bautista appears to be in great shape and his bat will likely provide some fantasy value for managers.

Jose Bautista agrees to minor league deal with Braves

Jose Bautista has agreed to a minor league deal with the Atlanta Braves, according to Jon Heyman on Twitter. Heyman adds that the deal includes $1 million if Bautista joins the team in the majors, plus incentives, and that the thought is he could potentially play third base for them.

Fantasy Impact

Bautista had been reportedly considering retirement after batting .203 in 2017 and sitting in free agency all offseason (along with many other high profile free agents). Now, it appears he will get one final shot to show he can still contribute. While he hit 23 home runs in 2017 and 22 in 2016, he swatted 40 as recently as 2015. After going unsigned for the entire offseason and missing all of spring training, Bautista will likely need at least a few weeks of extended spring training and/or a minor league assignment before being ready to join the big league club. Grab and stash him in leagues where you can afford the extra roster spot, but know that it could be several weeks before he is called up to the Braves, if he ever is.

Jose Bautista has option declined

Jose Bautista has officially had his 2018 club option declined by the Toronto Blue Jays, making him a free agent.

Fantasy Impact

The option was a mutual one for $17 million with a $500,000 buyout. It was a rough year for the 37-year-old. He stayed healthy and played in 157 games, but hit just .203/.308/.366 with 23 homers. Bautista will likely have to settle for a one-year deal somewhere.

Jose Bautista reaches base four times

Jose Bautista went 3-for-4 with a double and a walk on Saturday night as the Blue Jays walloped the Twins 7-2.

Fantasy Impact

Bautista is hitting just .208 through the middle of September. He also has 22 homers, 59 RBIs, six stolen bases, and a .690 OPS. It's unlikely Toronto will re-sign the 36-year-old this winter.

Jose Bautista hits a home run in win over Red Sox

Jose Bautista went two for five with a homerun and two runs scored to help lead the Blue Jays to a win over the Red Sox on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact

This was a productive night for Bautista at the plate for the Blue Jays. These nights have been few and far between for the slugger. Bautista is hitting just .206 on the year and is no longer a must own in standard fantasy leagues.
