Jesse Chavez, #30

News
Chavez could potentially fill a starting role in the near future, the Toronto Star reports.

The option of sending Aaron Sanchez to the bullpen becomes more muddy by the day, but if Toronto does indeed move him, the Chavez may get a big boost in fantasy value. The right-hander started 46 games for Oakland over the past two seasons, going 15-23 with a 3.83 ERA. He's a solid candidate for the job if the team decides to stay within the organization to find pitching help. However, there are so many variables associated with the situation that make it too early to jump the gun on assuming Chavez's fantasy value will rise in the near future.

Aaron Sanchez, #41

News
Sanchez (10-1) allowed just one run on six hits with five strikeouts over seven innings in a win Tuesday over Arizona.

Sanchez now has six straight starts in which he allowed two or fewer run. He continues to do it via the grounder, as he earned 12 groundouts against just four flyouts as he cruised to the victory Tuesday night. In those six aforementioned starts, Sanchez has allowed just two home runs. His 0.7 HR/9 ranks 16th in the league, particularly impressive considering he plays half his games at Rogers Centre.

News
Cecil managed to get just one out before giving up a three-run homer and getting the hook in the ninth inning of Wednesday's 10-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

There's not much more to say about Cecil's struggles outside of what's already on record. This season has been a complete disaster for Cecil, who was expected to be one of the most reliable sources of holds entering the 2016 campaign. He's lost all attractiveness not just out of the Jays' bullpen, but also to fantasy owners in practically any format.

Injuries
Achilles - Probable for Jul 23 (Updated - 7/22/16)
News
Carrera is battling an Achilles issue and remains out of the lineup Wednesday, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

This is the first we've heard of the ailment, but it would explain why Carrera has not been in the lineup since Saturday. The fact that a potential DL stint hasn't been mentioned has to be viewed as a positive, and Carrera should be considered day-to-day until the Jays say otherwise. In his continued absence, the Jays will go with Darwin Barney in left field while Michael Saunders (personal) takes the afternoon off.

Injuries
Knee - Probable for Jul 23 (Updated - 7/22/16)
News
Martin is out of the lineup Friday due to a knee injury and will likely need a couple days off, broadcaster Hazel Mae reports.

It's been a season to forget for Martin thus far, and this injury will likely only add to his frustration. Manager John Gibbons said Martin stayed in the sauna too long Thursday, got lightheaded and then fell in the shower and hurt his knee. Josh Thole will take over behind the plate while Martin is on the mend.

News
Travis went 3-for-5 and scored three times in Wednesday's 10-4 win against the D'Backs.

After hitting leadoff in his previous two starts, Travis continued to bounce around the lineup on Wednesday. Hitting eighth, Travis notched a pair of doubles and bumped his average up to .277, its highest mark of the month. In the final two games of the interleague series, the second baseman went 5-for-10 while scoring five runs.

News
Smoak is out of the lineup for Tuesday's interleague matchup with the Diamondbacks, Barry Davis of Sportsnet reports.

With the club playing in a National League ballpark, Edwin Encarnacion will transition from the DH spot to playing first, which pushes Smoak to the bench. The Blue Jays only face the Diamondbacks twice during the shortened series, so Smoak could sit again Wednesday if manager John Gibbons wants to keep Encarnacion in the lineup.

Injuries
Toe - Expected to be out until at least Jul 25 (Updated - 7/19/16)
News
Bautista (toe) is expected to take over the leadoff spot when he returns from the DL, Mike Wilner of BlueJaysTalk reports.

Bautista has been sidelined since June 16 with a turf toe like injury but began a rehab assignment Wednesday and is expected to return to the Blue Jays on Monday. When he does return, he'll be in prime position to score plenty of fantasy points, batting in front of sluggers Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion in the leadoff position. Bautista batted only .230 during the first half but could be due for a monstrous second half if he remains healthy.

News
Encarnacion went 1-for-4 with one walk and a two-run homer Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks.

Encarnacion didn't need to provide any more evidence that he enjoys hitting at Chase Field, but that didn't seem to matter Wednesday afternoon. The veteran slugger's two-run shot in the top of the eighth inning was absolutely crushed. According to Statcast, Encarnacion's 26th of the season landed a projected 471 feet away and left his bat at 112 mph. That was the longest home run Encarnacion has hit in the Statcast era (2015 to present), and the fourth longest hit by anyone this season. He now has 10 home runs in 17 career games at Chase Field.

News
Saunders is away from the team Wednesday while tending to a personal issue, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

The reason for the absence is unclear, but Saunders is not with the team Wednesday, so Darwin Barney is getting the starting nod in left field. Manager John Gibbons didn't elaborate on the situation, but he noted that he believes Saunders will be back for Friday's series-opener against the Mariners following Thursday's off day.

Donaldson went 2-for-4 with a walk, home run, three RBI and two runs in Wednesday's matinee in Arizona.

Donaldson did not have to wait very long to make his presence felt in the series finale. Just five pitches into the game, Donaldson came through with a two-run shot that made a splash landing in the pool at Chase Field. According to Statcast, the third baseman's 24th home run of the season landed a projected 412 feet away and left his bat at 109 mph. Donaldson has at least one hit in 31 of his last 36 games, with 40 RBI over that span.

News
Stroman (8-4) picked up the win Wednesday in Arizona. He gave up a lone run on eight hits while striking out six over eight innings.

Wednesday marked the first time all season in which Stroman didn't issue a walk while pitching four-plus innings. Coming off one of his worst starts of the year, the right-hander looked noticeably improved throughout his 99-pitch effort. He didn't allow an extra-base hit and recorded most of his outs on the ground en route to his third quality start in four tries. Stroman's ability to keep the ball down in the zone helped shave his ERA from 5.15 to 4.90.

News
Estrada (back) was activated from the disabled list and will start Friday against the Mariners.

Back soreness cost Estrada a couple turns in the rotation but he's been cleared to toe the rubber Friday opposite James Paxton. The back issue has been something Estrada's had to manage really since spring training, but it's been impossible to tell by the way he's pitched as the 33-year-old is putting together a career year (2.93 ERA, 0.99 WHIP). He's been excellent at home this season, posting a 2.44 ERA and .151 BAA in eight starts.

Barney went 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs Wednesday against Arizona.

Hitting from the leadoff spot, Barney tripled in two runs and brought another home with a sacrifice fly to give him a total of 15 RBI this season. Now that the Jays' infield is healthy, Barney has seen his playing time deteriorate in recent weeks; however, he has made the most of it by hitting safely in eight of his 10 games this month.

News
Tulowitzki went 6-for-21 with a homer, four RBI and an .810 OPS in last week's road trip out west.

In his last 25 games, Tulowitzki is 31-for-101 with eight homers and 24 RBI. He is hitting .307 in that span with an OPS of .939. The numbers are good but they don't tell the whole story. The shortstop's body language at the plate speaks almost as loudly. He is aggressive and selective at the same time. Hardly an at-bat goes by that Tulowitzki doesn't hit at least one ball hard, whether it's a hit, an out or a loud foul ball. The window of opportunity to buy low on the veteran seems to be closed. At the same time, owners shouldn't rule out a chance to sell high on the oft-injured Tulowitzki.
