Toronto Blue Jays

AL East

Cavan Biggio went 3-for-4 with a homer and a walk for Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: The 24-year-old is another Blue Jays prospect who is a son of a Hall of Famer. the 24-year-old is hitting a whopping .415 in Triple-A this season and could be up in Toronto by the end of the season. Biggio's defense remains a question mark but the second baseman would be worth adding in fantasy if he gets called up this summer.

Teoscar Hernandez went 1-for-3 at the plate with a strikeout on Wednesday as the Blue Jays were shutout by the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Hernandez is struggling at the plate hitting just .192 over his last eight games played. The 26-year-old outfielder can be streaky and fantasy owners should be avoiding Hernandez right now and he should be dropped in standard and 12 team leagues.

Clay Buchholz (0-1) allowed four earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out two across five innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Buchholz has made three starts now for the Blue Jays and has a 4.60 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and just eight strikeouts over 15 2/3 innings pitched. The veteran righty is not worth owning in standard leagues but might be a decent add in AL-only formats.

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo has announced Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will make his MLB debut on Friday versus Oakland. (Source: Gregor Chisholm on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Finally. There was a report last week that Guerrero would debut Tuesday but that turned out to be false. This one comes straight from the manager’s mouth, however. Vlad Jr. has been tearing up Triple-A pitching this season, totaling three homers in eight games. Expectations for the 20-year-old are through the roof, as they should be.


Randal Grichuk went 2-for-4 at the plate with a run scored as the Blue Jays lost to the Giants by a 7-6 score on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Grichuk has started the season off slowly hitting just .225 with a .296 on-base percentage. The veteran outfielder has power though and has four home runs, eight RBI and has scored 16 runs. Grichuk is not a must-own in standard fantasy leagues but is worth owning in deeper formats especially when he gets hot.

Rowdy Tellez went 2-for-4 at the plate with a double, two runs scored and a grand slam in Tuesday's 7-6 loss to the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Tellez is red hot at the plate at the moment as he is 7-for-15 with two doubles, two home runs and eight RBI over his last four games. Tellez is a good value in DFS right now and fantasy owners should be taking advantage of his hot hitting.

Preliminary tests on Toronto shortstop Bo Bichette showed a broken left hand, according to a report from The Athletic's Robert Murray. He will seek a second opinion. (Source: Robert Murray on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bichette was hit on the hand by a pitch on Monday, and it sounds like he will now miss some time as a result. This is a crushing blow for one of the game's top prospects, although more tests in the coming days will determine how much time he will miss.

Justin Smoak went 4-for-5 at the plate with a two-run home run Sunday as the Blue Jays won over the Athletics by a 5-4 score.

Fantasy Impact: Smoak is heating up at the plate and is hitting .444 with three home runs and 10 RBI over the last seven games. Fantasy owners should be grabbing the slugger if he is available on waiver wires as he will provide some power.

Ken Giles allowed no earned runs on three hits and no walks while striking out one across 1 1/3 innings to earn the save Sunday against the Athletics.

Fantasy Impact: Ken Giles is now 7-for-8 in save opportunities and has a 2.38 ERA on the season. The veteran reliever can be streaky but right now he is performing well as closer and should be owned in all leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Sanchez was seen looking at his fingers before departing, which isn't what you want out of a pitcher with a history of blister issues. Sanchez had thrown four innings of one-run ball before exiting. The Blue Jays will likely update his status later tonight.

Brandon Drury went 1-for-4 at the plate with a solo home run in Friday's 5-1 win over the A's.

Fantasy Impact: Drury has gotten off to a rough start this year as this was his first home run and RBI of the season. The veteran infielder is hitting just .147 and has a 38.8% strikeout rate. With Vladimir Guerrero getting called up and players coming back from injuries, Drury is going to find himself on the bench and fantasy owners should be moving on.

Marcus Stroman (1-3) allowed one run on six hits and two walks while striking out six over eight innings in a win over the A's on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Stroman is off to a great start in 2019 after a disappointing 2018 season. The 27-year-old righty has a 1.76 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, and 29 strikeouts in 30 2/3 innings. If Stroman is still on the waiver wire, fantasy owners should be picking him up.

Eric Sogard went 3-for-5 at the plate with a double, a stolen base and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Sogard played third base on Tuesday and will fill in as a utility role around the infield for the Blue Jays. Sogard could be worth grabbing in deep AL-only formats but for the most part can be left on the waiver wire.

Joe Biagini struck out one and allowed no baserunners to record his first save of the season Monday in a 5-3 win over the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Biagini got an opportunity for the save with normal closer Ken Giles out sick for the night. Most chances will go to Giles during the season. Biagini is a good player to own in fantasy leagues that count holds as he already has four this year.

Fantasy Impact: Gurriel is only hitting .175 with seven RBI over 13 games to start the year. Fantasy owners should move on from the 25-year-old infielder for another option on the waiver wire. Eric Sogard is getting called up to replace Gurriel on the Jays roster.


Billy McKinney went 0-for-4 at the plate and struck out twice as the Blue Jays lost to the Rays by an 11-7 score.

But the 24-year-old outfielder is off to a rough start hitting just .171 and has yet to hit a home run and has one RBI. Fantasy owners may want to move on from McKinley if there are better options in the waiver wire.
