Blue Jays' Josh Thole: Fills in with two hits versus Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thole went 2-for-4 with a walk Wednesday against the Rockies.

Thole made the most of his unusual spot-start for Russell Martin (rest). Typically, Thole only catches knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, but recently manager John Gibbons has decided to give the 33-year-old Martin rest more routinely. Entering Wednesday's game, Thole had amassed just two hits since April 26. Even if given the opportunity to play more often, Thole holds little to no value in most leagues.

Blue Jays' Josh Thole: Bringing minimal offense to Jays
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thole is hitting just .130/.216/.196 in 46 at-bats this season.

The truth is that he's only on the big-league squad because he's R.A. Dickey's personal catcher. Thole isn't even an option off the bench for manager John Gibbons when the Jays are in need of a pinch hitter. Unless you're looking for a minimum-salary catcher in DFS once a week, Thole offers little to no fantasy value.

Blue Jays' Josh Thole: Remains securely fastened as backup in Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite his struggles, Josh Thole is unlikely to be demoted as long as R.A. Dickey remains on the roster, Baseball Prospectus reports.

Many in Toronto's fanbase have called for an upgrade at the backup spot to Russell Martin. But even with Dickey having had his typically putrid April, the knuckleballer is unlikely to go anywhere -- meaning Thole isn't going anywhere either. The 29-year-old should be deployed merely as a punt-play when Dickey is on the hill.

Blue Jays' Josh Thole: Takes blame for extra-inning loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

After the game, Thole took responsibility for Wednesday's walk-off loss to the Orioles that ended on a passed ball in extra innings, MLB.com reports.

The passed ball came with Rule 5 pick Joe Biagini on the mound for Toronto. He went out of his way to protect the young reliever by taking responsibility for getting crossed up. It was a frustrating end to an otherwise solid game from the backup catcher, who only plays when R.A. Dickey gets the start.

Blue Jays' Josh Thole: Ready for increased role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager John Gibbons said Josh Thole will catch most of R.A. Dickey's starts this season, CBC Sports reports.

The 29-year-old catcher has been with the Toronto Blue Jays since 2013, but has never played more than 57 games in a year -- he only played 18 in 2015 due to injuries and a backlog at the position. However, because of his ability to catch Dickey's knuckleball, and the rest needed by 33-year-old Russell Martin, Thole may be in line for an increased workload this season. He may be worth a look in daily leagues due to the fact he'll be part of the most potent offense in baseball.
