News
Navarro is expected to join the Blue Jays on Monday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of SportsNet reports.

Navarro was dealt to the Blue Jays on Friday, coming over from the White Sox in exchange for Colton Turner. Upon joining the big league club, Navarro is expected to serve as the top backup to Russell Martin, likely seeing most of his time against left-handers.

News
Grilli allowed a walk and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

Manager John Gibbons got Grilli some action Thursday after the right-hander hadn't pitched in five days. Since debuting with the Jays on June 1, Grilli has three wins, two saves and 13 holds while posting a career-best 1.52 ERA and 0.81 WHIP over 31 appearances (29.2 innings). He has become one of the most valuable fantasy assets in those leagues that value relievers in set-up roles.

Martin is not in the lineup Saturday against the Twins, John Lott of Vice Sports reports.

Manager John Gibbons said Martin will get the day off, noting that he's "beat up" from catching each of the last three games. The plan is for Martin to serve as the DH Sunday, with Josh Thole making a second straight start behind the plate.

Travis (hand) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Twins, Barry Davis of SportsNet reports.

Travis had missed the last four games with soreness in his hand, but he's back at his usual second base spot Saturday. The righty will bat eighth in the order against Minnesota's Ervin Santana.

Pillar is back in the lineup Saturday against Minnesota, Barry Davis of SportsNet reports.

As expected, Pillar will return to the outfield after an illness kept him out of action Friday night. Pillar will get the nod in center, while Melvin Upton starts in left and Michael Saunders starts in right.

Joaquin Benoit, #53
Year-to-date Stats

News
Benoit allowed three hits while recording four outs in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

Benoit's four-out effort Thursday marked his longest appearance since June 20, and the three hits allowed matched his season high. He 15-year veteran was able to work his way around the trouble to maintain his flawless ERA since joining the Blue Jays. Aside from not allowing a run, Benoit has also managed to pick up one win, a save and five holds since joining the team. He's become a strong option in deep leagues that value relief roles.

Position Breakdown
1B - 95, DH - 1
News
Smoak went 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI singles and three-run homer in Friday's 15-8 victory over the Twins.

The slugging first baseman delivered early and often Friday, beginning with a 407-foot shot in the second that plated Troy Tulowitzki and Melvin Upton, Jr. He followed with run-scoring singles in the third and seventh, making it his highest RBI tally on the season by far. The performance was a bright spot in an otherwise dismal August for Smoak, who's slashed .195/.250/.366 over 41 August at-bats.

News
Bautista (knee) was officially activated off the DL on Thursday, Barry Davis of Sportsnet reports.

Bautista will lead off in his first game back, but in an effort to take some of the pressure off his left knee, he'll be held out of the field and deployed as the DH on Thursday. The club figures to continue down this path in the short term, going with a combination of Michael Saunders and Ezequiel Carrera in right field, but Bautista's bat will likely remain in the lineup most nights. Ryan Goins was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding roster move.

Position Breakdown

News
Encarnacion went 2-for-3 with an RBI infield single, two-run homer, walk and two runs in Saturday's 8-7 victory over the Twins.

The veteran slugger went deep off Ervin Santana in the sixth, plating Josh Donaldson with a 422-foot shot to start the Blue Jays' comeback from a 5-1 deficit. He subsequently closed the gap to 7-6 in the seventh with an infield single that drove in Jose Bautista. With 105 RBI on the season, Encarnacion has a chance to blow past the career-high 111 he tallied in 2015.

Position Breakdown

News
Upton went 1-for-4 with a game-tying triple and two runs, including the game-winner as a result of a throwing error.

The slugging outfielder came through in the eighth with a one-out triple that brought home Kevin Pillar with the tying run, with Upton scoring behind him on the play due to Max Kepler's throwing error. He's been swinging a hot bat over the last three games, going 6-for-13 with two doubles, Saturday's triple, an RBI and six runs over that span.

Francisco Liriano, #45
Year-to-date Stats

News
Liriano (1-1) gave up four runs (three earned) on two hits and four walks over five innings in Friday's 15-8 victory over the Twins. He struck out seven.

It was a somewhat unorthodox stat line for the veteran southpaw, who gave up a first-inning solo blast to Trevor Plouffe and a sacrifice fly to the slugger in the third for his first two runs. Kurt Suzuki then got to Liriano for a two-RBI double in the fourth that represented only the second and final hit that the Blue Jays starter would give up over his five frames. As usual, Liriano got into some trouble due to spotty control, but also missed plenty of bats, notching 14 swinging strikes over 102 pitches. The 32-year-old has now generated a 3.97 ERA over his four Toronto starts and will look to keep things going in the right direction when he takes on the Rays next Friday.

J.A. Happ, #33
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
174155.13.1945139
 
News
J.A. Happ (17-4) pitched five innings, allowing four runs on six hits and one walk while striking out six Angels in Thursday's loss.

Happ's amazing 11-game winning streak -- which dated back to June 6 -- finally came to an end Thursday. He was dealing early on, retiring 13 batters in a row with six strikeouts, before failing to record an out in the sixth and getting the hook. The left-hander's five-inning outing was the shortest in Happ's last nine starts, and the four runs allowed were his most given up since June 28. He'll look to start a new streak when he toes the rubber for his next start Tuesday in Baltimore.

News
Saunders (hamstring) is back in the lineup Saturday against Minnesota, Barry Davis of SportsNet reports.

After sitting the last two games with a minor hamstring issue, Saunders is back in the lineup, starting in right field and batting fifth in the order. He'll be flanked by Kevin Pillar in center, while Melvin Upton starts in left.

News
Biagini allowed two runs on two hits over 1.2 innings during Thursday's loss to the Angels. It was the first time he had surrendered a run in 16 appearances.

Biagini needed just 4.1 more innings to match Ricky Romero's team record for rookies with the longest streak of scoreless frames, but that effort failed with Thursday's performance. He continues to be one of the most used arms out of the Jays bullpen, but often appears in low-leverage situations that prevent him from earning many saves and holds.

Donaldson went 1-for-2 with a two-RBI single, two walks and a run in Saturday's 8-7 victory over the Twins.

The power-hitting third baseman stayed hot on a day in which he reached three times and drove in a pair of key runs with a seventh-inning single. Donaldson now has a six-game hitting streak, with two homers and six RBI over that span.

Marcus Stroman, #6
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
95167.04.5840140
 
News
Stroman didn't factor into the decision Saturday versus the Twins, giving up five earned runs on nine hits, a walk and a wild pitch over six innings. He struck out five.

The right-hander was able to avoid the long ball but gave up several timely hits, particularly in the four-run fourth inning. He got into trouble early uncorking a wild pitch that plated Brian Dozier in the first, and then surrendered a run-scoring single to Miguel Sano and a pair of RBI doubles to Eduardo Escobar and Brian Dozier in the fourth. The five earned runs were the most Stroman had surrendered in a start since July 15 against the A's, but he encouragingly avoided the long ball for the second straight start. The 25-year-old will try to get back in the win column when he takes on the Rays next Saturday.

Marco Estrada, #25

WLIPERABBK

News
Estrada (7-6) surrendered six runs on 10 hits and three walks over five innings Wednesday, striking out four and taking the loss.

Five of the six runs Estrada allowed came in the first couple innings, beginning with back-to-back home runs from two of the game's best power hitters, Mike Trout and Albert Pujols. While he settled down somewhat and made it through five innings, the six earned runs mark a season-high for Estrada. The poor outing also comes on the heels of what was his worst outing of the season before Wednesday, where he allowed three home runs and five earned runs over just four innings. In these past two starts, Estrada's ERA has risen from 2.92 to 3.47. Estrada will look to turn things around Monday in a big game against the division-rival Orioles.

News
Thole went 0-for-3 with an RBI, his seventh of the season, in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

Making his routine spot start behind the plate with knuckleballer R.A. Dickey on the hill, Thole's third straight hitless effort lowered his batting average to a measly .151 on the season. The left-hand hitting catcher's splits have been equally as disappointing, as Thole's hitting .156 in 32 at-bats against southpaws, and .149 in 74 at-bats versus righties.

News
Barney's sixth-inning solo homer in Friday's blowout win over the Twins was his first since back on June 5 versus the Red Sox.

The second baseman had been mired in a long-ball drought of epic proportions before Friday's round-tripper, which came in a game where Barney also collected a double and scored two runs overall. He's tallied four multi-hit efforts over his last seven games, but is still hitting just .240 over 50 August at-bats.

Osuna notched his 29th save in Saturday's 8-7 victory over the Twins, pitching a clean ninth in which he recorded two strikeouts.

The well-rested closer shined in his first appearance in a week, needing 16 pitches to get through the final frame. It was Osuna's second straight scoreless effort since a blown save against the Indians on Aug. 19 and brought his season ERA down to 2.09.
