Toronto Blue Jays

AL East

Fantasy Impact: The 21-year-old budding start dealt with a concussion down the stretch this year but it should have no impact on his off-season. Bichette played in 46 games for the Blue Jays in 2019, batting .311 with 11 homers, four steals, and a .929 OPS. He'll be an enticing fantasy selection come draft season.

Blue Jays CEO Mark Shapiro says Vladimir Guerrero Jr. "couldn't be pushing himself harder" in off-season workouts thus far. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Guerrero had a somewhat disappointing rookie season, batting .272 with 15 homers and a .772 OPS. He is trying to shed some weight and become more agile, which will also help with his defense. If Guerrero's ADP slips far enough this winter he could wind up being a draft-day value next spring. He doesn't turn 21 until March.

Teoscar Hernandez went 1-for-2 with a home run and two walks on Saturday as the Blue Jays defeated the Rays by a 4-1 score.

Fantasy Impact: Hernandez is hitting just .227 with a .302 on-base percentage but has put up some nice counting stats for fantasy owners. The 26-year-old outfielder has 25 home runs, 62 RBI, 58 runs and five stolen bases on the year.

Randal Grichuk went 1-for-4 with a triple while scoring a run and driving in a run as the Blue Jays beat the Rays by a 4-1 score on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Grichuk is hitting just .233 on the season with a .282 on-base percentage. But the veteran outfielder has put up some nice power numbers with 30 home runs and 80 RBI. Grichuk is worth owning in deeper leagues for owners needing some slugging.

Ken Giles threw a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout against the Rays on Saturday to pick up his 23rd save of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Giles has been great in the role of closer for the Blue Jays this season. The veteran reliever is 23-for-24 in save chances with a 1.87 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with 83 strikeouts in 53 innings of work.

Category: Game Recaps

Trent Thornton allowed only one hit over five scoreless innings in a win over the Rays on Saturday. He struck out eight and walked four.

Fantasy Impact: Thornton has been inconsistent this year in his first season in the majors. The rookie finishes with a 6-9 record with a 4.84 ERA over 29 starts (32 games). Thornton has a good chance of winning a role in the Jays rotation in 2020.

Cavan Biggio went 1-for-4 with a double and walk on Friday as the Blue Jays lost to the Rays by a 6-2 score.

Fantasy Impact: Biggio has been very streaky at the plate in his first season in the majors. The rookie is hitting just .234 but has put up some strong counting stats with 16 home runs, 48 RBI, 64 runs and 14 stolen bases for the year.

Category: Game Recaps

T.J. Zeuch took the loss after giving up three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out four over five innings Friday against Tampa Bay.

Fantasy Impact: Zeuch finishes the season with a 1-2 record with a 4.76 ERA through his first five appearances (including three starts) in the majors. The rookie will get a good shot at winning a job in the rotation in 2020.

Anthony Kay (side, back) is still being evaluated to figure out what is causing pain in his side and back according to Shi Davidi of Sportsnet baseball. (Source: Shi Davidi on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kay was scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday against the Orioles due to the pain in his back and side. Kay says that it's not muscular, and that he had a CT Scan that is still being evaluated. With the season coming to a close expect the Jays to shutdown the rookie pitcher for the rest of the year.

Derek Fisher went 1-for-4 with a walk, drove in a run and scored on Thursday as the Blue Jays beat the Orioles by an 8-4 score.

Fantasy Impact: Fisher has been alternating between the lineup and the bench for the Blue Jays. The 26-year-old outfielder has struggled at the plate this season hitting just .188 with a 31.8% strikeout rate over 50 games.

Category: Game Recaps

Lourdes Gurriel went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, two runs and two RBI in the Blue Jays' 8-4 win over the Orioles on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Gurriel has dealt with some injuries and streakiness but overall has had a good year at the plate for the Blue Jays. The 25-year-old infielder is hitting .284 with 20 home runs, 50 RBI, 52 runs scored and six stolen bases on the year.

Category: Game Recaps

Rowdy Tellez went 1-for-2 with three walks and scored three runs on Wednesday as the Blue Jays beat the Orioles by an 11-10 score.

Fantasy Impact: Tellez finally had a patient night at the plate with the three walks as the slugger has been striking out at a career-high 28% this season. Don't expect this trend to continue and Tellez can be left on the waiver wire.

Category: Game Recaps

Clay Buchholz allowed seven earned runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out four across 3 2/3 innings Wednesday against the Orioles. He did not factor in the decision.

Fantasy Impact: Buchholz has been a disappointment for the Blue Jays and has a 1-5 record with a 6.48 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 29 strikeouts over 50 innings pitched. Buchholz will have a rematch against the Orioles in his next outing, currently projected to come on Monday.

Jacob Waguespack allowed three runs on seven hits with two walks and four strikeouts across 3 2/3 innings while taking a loss against the Yankees on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Waguespack is now 4-5 with a 4.70 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 52 strikeouts in 67 innings this season. He will look to rebound in his next start Friday, but he will again face the Yankees, this time on the road.

Zack Godley cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday. (Source: Blue Jays on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Godley passed through waivers unclaimed and will head to the minors for the team. The veteran righty has a 3.94 ERA and 12/7 K/BB ratio across 16 innings as a reliever for the Jays.

Category: Transactions

Justin Smoak went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk while scoring a run on Saturday as the Blue Jays lost to the Rays by a 5-3 score.

Fantasy Impact: Smoak has been disappointing this season hitting just .212. But the veteran first baseman has put up some decent power numbers with 20 home runs and 55 RBI over 111 games. Smoak is worth owning in AL-only formats.

Category: Game Recaps

Reese McGuire went 3-for-4 and scored a run during Thursday's loss to the Rays.

Fantasy Impact: McGuire has only played 18 games in the majors this season but has hit well in his time at the big league level. The 24-year-old catcher is hitting .310 with four homers and six RBI in 60 plate appearances. McGuire could see a bigger role next season and might be worth owning in deeper leagues.

Category: Game Recaps

Derek Law pitched 1 2/3 innings Saturday, allowing just two walks and striking out two to earn the save in a 7-5 win over the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact: Law got an opportunity for the save with Ken Giles on the paternity list and out for a couple of games. Normally Law works in a setup role and will move back once Giles returns and is not worth adding in fantasy.

Wilmer Font threw two scoreless innings as the opener against the Dodgers on Wednesday, giving up one hit, striking out four and walking two as the Blue Jays eventually fell 2-1.

Fantasy Impact: The Blue Jays have been using Font in an opener role for the team. The 29-year-old has a 4.27 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 70/23 K/BB ratio across 65 1/3 innings of work (nine starts) at the major-league level this season and can be left on the waiver wire.

Category: Game Recaps

Sean Reid-Foley gave up five runs on five hits with two walks and two strikeouts over 1 2/3 innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: The loss puts Reid-Foley's record at 2-4 for the season. The 23-year-old righty also has a 4.26 ERA, 1.71 WHIP and 28/21 K/BB ratio across 31 2/3 innings (six starts). Reid-Foley will look to bounce back on Sunday when he faces the Mariners in Seattle.
