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.

Schultz was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of SportsNet reports.

The Blue Jays DFA'd Aaron Loup on Saturday morning, freeing up a spot on the 25-man roster to add Schultz, who will return for the first time in nearly a month. Schultz has pitched in 10 games for Toronto on the season, amassing a 3.00 ERA across 12.0 cumulative innings.

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

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 went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Twins.

it was his first three-hit game of the season but Bautista has been swinging a hot stick since coming off the DL four games ago, hitting .353 (6-for-17) with two walks, three doubles and five runs scored. Hitting in the leadoff spot will limit his RBI opportunities, but with Josh Donaldson and Edwin Encarnacion slugging behind him Bautista should continue to cross the plate frequently.

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 is starting in left field and batting seventh in the order Sunday against the Twins.

Upton has been splitting time in left field with Ezequiel Carrera lately, but he possesses more fantasy upside of the two and may have inched ahead of Carrera in the competition for at-bats. It's the second start in a row for Upton, who is sitting on a .311/.347/.600 line over his last 45 at-bats, including three homers, nine RBI, 12 runs and a stolen base.

Francisco Liriano, #45

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.

Saunders is not in the lineup Monday against the Orioles.

Saunders returned to the lineup Saturday after dealing with a minor hamstring issue, but he'll now head to the bench for the second consecutive game since then. In his place, Toronto will go with an outfield of Melvin Upton, Kevin Pillar, and Jose Bautista on Monday.

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.

Position Breakdown

News
Donaldson went 3-for-4 with a walk, three home runs and four RBI in Sunday's win over the Twins.

It was his first career three home run game and the 10th multi-homer game of Donaldson's career. The reigning AL MVP has been overshadowed a little by teammate Edwin Encarnacion this season but Donaldson still has a fantastic .294/.407/.578 slash line with 33 homers, 91 RBI and 105 runs scored on the year with plenty of baseball left to play. He may not repeat as MVP, but his 2016 campaign may end up being just as valuable as last year's.

Marcus Stroman, #6

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.

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.

News
Tulowitzki went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Twins.

The blast was his 22nd of the season. Tulo's never going to put up the batting averages at sea level that he managed as a member of the Rockies, but he's proven this year that his power stroke wasn't just a product of Coors Field.

News
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.

R.A. Dickey, #43
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
913160.14.4361116
 
News
Dickey (9-13) came away with a no-decision in Sunday's win over the Twins, allowing five runs (three earned) on six hits and three walks over six innings while striking out five.

A Josh Donaldson throwing error led to two unearned runs and helped salvage a quality start from what was otherwise a rough outing for the knuckleballer. Dickey's managed to keep the ball in the park in August, surrendering just one home run in 29 innings over five starts leading to a solid 3.41 ERA, but given his 1.57 HR/9 rate on the season there's no guarantee he'll be able to maintain that level of success in September.
