CF,LF,RF - TOR
Raimel Tapia went 2-for-5 with two runs scored and three RBI in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Guardians.
Despite the big game, Tapia, usually a reliable source of batting average, is hitting just .222 in the early going. He may be pressing a bit with Toronto, as his 2.1% walk rate and 47.9% O-Swing% are both by far a career-worst. He's batting low in the order which should limit his chances for runs scored, which is usually one of the categories in which he contributes. His three steals to this point simply aren't enough to outweigh how little he helps in other categories, so he doesn't need to be rostered, or at least not started, in anything other than AL-only leagues.
Raimel Tapia went 4-for-5 with a double on Friday against the Astros.
Tapia has been a solid addition to the Blue Jays lineup since Teoscar Hernandez went down with an oblique injury. He currently has a .254 batting average with a home run and two stolen bases.
Raimel Tapia went 2-4 out of the leadoff spot in Friday's win against Houston.
Tapia stole his second base of the season and raised his batting average to .256. Tapia has been playing nearly every day since Hernandez's injury. He could be a useful fantasy option for the foreseeable future and should provide a good batting average, stolen bases, and a lot of runs in a good Blue Jays lineup.
Raimel Tapia was traded to the Toronto Blue Jays in a trade that sent Randal Grichuk to Colorado.
Tapia moves to a much better lineup but out of the best hitters park in baseball. He could also move to a bench role, considering how deep the Blue Jays lineup is. Tapia provides excellent speed for fantasy purposes, but this could zap much of his value.
Rockies outfielder Raimel Tapia went 2-for-5 with a single, double, and RBI against the Nationals on Wednesday evening. He also stranded five runners on base in the effort. Colorado ultimately defeated Washington by a score of 10-5.
