Blue Jays' Josh Thole: Has second straight two-RBI day Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thole went 2-for-3 with a two-RBI double in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the A's.

The reserve catcher enjoyed some rare success at the plate, opening the scoring on the day by plating Troy Tulowitzki and Darwin Barney with a two-bagger to deep right field in the third. Thole now has back-to-back multi-hit and RBI efforts, and is slashing .333/.385/.417 over 12 at-bats in July.

Blue Jays' Josh Thole: Lacks playing time, production during first half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thole struggled in his limited playing time during the first half of the season, hitting a measly .141 with just one extra-base hit in 78 at-bats.

The fact that Russell Martin was disgustingly awful for the first two-plus months of the season, and Thole still didn't receive extra playing time, tells you all you need to know about his fantasy value. If not for being knuckleballer R.A. Dickey's personal catcher, it's very unlikely that Thole would still be wearing a big league uniform with the way his season has gone.

Blue Jays' Josh Thole: Two hits and two RBI in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thole went 2-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and two RBI in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

He continues to get a start or two a week as R.A. Dickey's personal catcher, but Thole's .141/.239/.179 slash line on the season tells you all you need to know about his fantasy value.

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.
