Position Breakdown

News
Carrera has six hits in his last 10 at bats, and manager John Gibbons indicated that he'll likely get the chance to start in left field again Monday, Sportsnet reports.

Michael Saunders, the Blue Jays' primary left fielder, has been nursing a sore hamstring, so Carrera's hot streak comes at the perfect time for the Blue Jays. The outfielder makes for a great add in daily leagues considering the team's offense has starting to heat up.

Pat Venditte, #44

News
Venditte was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Barry Davis of Sportsnet reports.

The switch-pitching Venditte made five appearances during his most recent stint with the big league club, but he struggled to keep runners off base with a 2.45 WHIP over 3.2 innings of work. The Blue Jays will replace him in the bullpen with hard-throwing righty Ryan Tepera, who tops out in the mid-90s as opposed to Venditte's mid-80s heater.

Injuries
Hip - Expected to be out until at least Apr 29 (Updated - 4/15/16)
News
Schultz will began a rehab assignment Thursday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet reports.

Schultz, who is returning from offseason hip surgery, had been pitching to live hitters the last few weeks but is now set to begin a minor league rehab assignment. If the 30-year-old righty experiences no setbacks during his rehab appearances, he could return to the Blue Jays' bullpen in the near future.

Martin (neck) is back in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox and he'll be batting seventh.

After sitting out the last three games due to neck soreness, Martin will return to his post behind the plate for Wednesday's series finale against the White Sox. He'll be facing off against Chicago lefty Jose Quintana.

Injuries
Shoulder - Expected to be out until at least May 15 (Updated - 4/20/16)
News
Travis (shoulder) will get some at-bats Friday during an extended spring game and will need a full spring training's worth of games before returning to the Blue Jays, Barry Davis of Sportsnet reports.

There is no set return date yet for Travis but he says "he feels great." He had been battling a nagging shoulder injury for most of last season, warranting a couple stints on the DL before being placed there in late July and hasn't returned since. The 25-year-old second baseman is slowly working his way back into the fold, as the Blue Jays have not yet set a target date for his rehab assignment in the minors.

Pillar is out of the lineup Monday against the White Sox, Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star reports.

Despite three straight 2-for-4 games, Pillar will get the day off Monday to rest. Ezekiel Carrera will man center field and lead off while Pillar is resting.

Elbow - Expected to be out until at least May 1 (Updated - 4/17/16)
News
Loup will throw a bullpen session Friday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet reports.

Loup was sidelined in early March with a flexor tendon strain, but he's made steady progress since then. He played catch off flat ground in mid-March, threw from 90 feet several weeks ago, and is now set to throw a bullpen session. While he's still smack in the middle of his rehab program, he's showing positive signs and is approaching a return to the Blue Jays sometime in May.

Morales (shoulder) will throw off a mound soon, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet reports.

The Blue Jays appear to be pleased with Morales' progress in his rehab from shoulder fatigue and have given him the green light to throw off the mound. If he doesn't encounter any setbacks, the 30-year-old lefty could return to the Blue Jays' in the coming weeks.

News
Smoak is not in the lineup Tuesday against the White Sox, Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star reports.

Smoak received a day off Monday as well, so it's a bit surprising to see him out of the lineup on consecutive days. Edwin Encarnacion will take over at first base Tuesday, while Josh Donaldson will slide into the DH spot.

Jose Bautista, #19

23.247144160
 
Position Breakdown
OF - 23, DH - 1
News
Bautista went 2-for-3 with two doubles, two walks and two runs in Monday's loss to the White Sox.

Bautista continued his hot start to 2016. Last season, the 35-year-old slashed just .164/.325/.443 with just seven extra-base hits in the first month of the season. This year, Bautista is hitting .268/.413/.563 with 12 extra-base (seven doubles, one triple and four home runs) through 21 games. Preparing to hit the free agent market this winter, the outfielder seems poised to continue his reign as one of the league's premier hitters.

Edwin Encarnacion, #10

GAVGRHRRBISB

Position Breakdown
1B - 6, DH - 17
News
Encarnacion went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Tuesday's 10-1 loss to the White Sox.

Encarnacion's blast came in the epitome of garbage time down 7-0 in the seventh inning, but it counts all the same for fantasy purposes. He had gone ten games without one coming in, so hopefully connecting against otherwise nearly-untouchable starter Chris Sale gets the veteran going.

Injuries
Suspension - Suspended until Jul 15 (Updated - 4/22/16)
News
The Blue Jays appear ready to move on from Colabello, as evident by the promotion of infielder Matt Dominguez, CBC Sports reports.

Colabello rose from minor-league anonymity last season to claim a spot with the high-flying Blue Jays, but struggled out of the gate this year, hitting just .069 prior to his suspension. Manager Job Gibbons said players "come and go" in baseball, which doesn't seem too encouraging when assessing the first baseman's value once the suspension is over.

News
Saunders made his return tot he lineup after a three-day absence, going 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI.

Saunders has gotten off to a raging hot start to the season, hitting .345 this month despite dealing with a hamstring injury. Health is always a problem for Saunders, who played in just nine games last year and 78 the year before that, but the outfielder already has nine extra-base hits this year. He had double-digit homers and steals in his last full season back in 2013.

News
Donaldson will serve as the DH and bat second against the White Sox on Tuesday, Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star reports.

Donaldson was hit by a pitch over the weekend that has left him with a bruised thigh, so he'll be relegated to DH duties for the second straight game. Given that he's been able to stay in the lineup, it doesn't appear to be a major concern but it may keep him out of the field for the time being.

Marcus Stroman, #6
Year-to-date Stats

3035.04.37919
 
News
Stroman allowed four runs in 6.2 innings in a no-decision on Monday against the White Sox. He allowed six hits, walked two, and struck out four.

Stroman has been able to give the Jays good length in his starts this year, but has an unexceptional 4.37 ERA through five starts. The righty has a strong WHIP despite the inflated ERA, but his strikeouts have been way down to start the season. He'll make his next start Sunday against the Rays.

Marco Estrada, #25
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK

News
Estrada (1-2) only had one bad inning where he was charged with three runs, which was enough for him to take the loss Wednesday versus the White Sox. He also struck out five and walked four in 6.2 frames.

Through the first six innings, Estrada kept Chicago off the scoreboard and only allowed one hit, but he yielded a triple with two runners on and two outs in the seventh. That was enough, as the White Sox won 4-0. Estrada hasn't won since Opening Day, but the Blue Jays have scored just four runs over his last three outings. His next start will be Tuesday versus the Rangers.

News
Dominguez was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Shi Davidi of SportsNet reports.

Dominguez got off to a strong start for Buffalo, posting a .311 batting average and six extra-base hits (two homers) in 61 at-bats. He may receive occasional starts at third base or designated hitter, but so long as Josh Donaldson is healthy, Dominguez doesn't figure to get much playing time.

News
Goins is not in the lineup Tuesday against the White Sox, Brendan Kennedy of the Toronto Star reports.

Goins is 0-for-18 over his last five games, dropping his season average down to .172, so he'll receive his second day off in the last three games. Darwin Barney will take over at the keystone in his stead and bat eighth.

News
Storen allowed three runs on four hits, including a home run, in Tuesday's lopsided loss to the White Sox.

Although manager John Gibbons said he doesn't put "much stock" in low-leverage outings like Tuesday's, the performance is still disconcerting. Storen has been downright terrible through nine appearances with his new team, sporting an ugly 9.39 ERA and 1.83 WHIP in 7.2 innings. Entering the season, there were talks of the right-hander possibly stealing the closers job from Roberto Osuna, but that circumstance appears to be out of the question at this point. Even in a set-up role, Storen could be a valuable asset for racking up holds, however it's hard to believe that Gibbons will continue to bestow that opportunity to him unless a turnaround happens quickly.

R.A. Dickey, #43
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
1326.26.751122
 
News
Dickey (1-3) was shelled for six runs on eight hits over six innings in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox, striking out three with one walk.

Dickey is still yet to top six innings pitched this season, but his 4.13 FIP suggests there's legitimate hope for improvement on his atrocious 6.75 ERA. The veteran knuckleballer has delivered only one quality start in five tries to date, and has given up six runs in each of his first two home appearances. He'll look to improve his results at the Rogers Centre with the Rangers in town Monday.
