Blue Jays' Marcus Stroman: Feeling confident headed into 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Stroman said his surgically-repaired knee "finally feels 100 percent," and he's confident he can throw upwards of 240 innings this season, Paul Hagen of MLB.com reports.

Now two years removed from surgery to repair the torn ACL in his left knee, Stroman said Monday that his body "feels the best it's ever felt." The Jays' ace also commented on overcoming 2016's early-season struggles. "I just got kind of out of whack at some point," the 25-year-old said. "I just simplified everything on my own at that point, and that's something I'm going to stick with this year. It's in my delivery and in my motion. I feel excited this year for what I'm going to do." After failing to meet expectations in last year's campaign, Stroman could slip down some draft boards past his true value. He has the talent to be a solid ace, or at the very least, a strong second option across most fantasy formats.

Blue Jays' Marco Estrada: Feels lingering effects of back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Estrada said he feels much healthier than he has in a long time, but still deals with some lingering back aches caused by last season's injury, the National Post reports.

The veteran acknowledged that last season's back issues -- which caused him to begin 2016 on the DL -- still ache every now and again, but ultimately the sensation is much different than the pain he felt last year. However, hearing Estrada, who's entering his 10th season at 33-years-old, mention that he feels a back "ache" should raise owners' eyebrows. The right-hander started a career-high 29 games in 2016 while managing the AL's sixth-best WHIP (1.12). Estrada has evolved into a finesse pitcher in recent years as his pitch velocity continues to drop (his 88.1 mph average fastball last season was a career low). After failing to top 150 innings in any of his first six MLB seasons, Estrada has now accomplished the feat for three consecutive campaigns.

Blue Jays' Steve Pearce: Preferred to be every-day outfielder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pearce, who was previously presumed to be in line for a platoon role at first base, is the Jays' preferred every-day left fielder, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

Pearce is slated to be ready for Opening Day after having elbow surgery in September, but whether he'll have the arm strength to play the outfield still remains uncertain. On Saturday, general manager Ross Atkins said Justin Smoak playing every day at first base with Pearce in left is the club's "best-case scenario," the first time in which Atkins has explicitly said such. The optimal situation would work out for Pearce from a fantasy standpoint, as he'd likely be in line for more at-bats without having to platoon with Smoak at first base.

Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Looking to become everyday first baseman
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Smoak, who was previously presumed to be in line for a platoon role, is the Jays' preferred every-day first baseman, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

On Saturday, after the Jays' first full-squad workout, general manager Ross Atkins called Smoak playing every day at first, with Steve Pearce the primary left fielder, as the club's "best-case scenario," the first time he's explicitly expressed that. Pearce (elbow) is supposed to be ready to play the outfield by Opening Day, but if he's not, then the newly-acquired Pearce will cut into Smoak's playing time at first base. However, if Pearce can play left as expected, then Smoak's fantasy value will get a huge boost with the prospect of an everyday role.

Blue Jays' Kendrys Morales: Works on defense during offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morales worked a lot of his defense during the offseason in preparation for a possible platoon role at first base, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.

Morales seems optimistic about playing a bit more on defense in 2017 than he has in recent seasons, but manager John Gibbons made clear Saturday that Morales playing the field is not part of the plan. "He came here to DH," Gibbons said. "Of course you play interleague games, he'll get those games at first, but that's not his job, that's not why he was brought here. We'll get him out there occasionally." The important note to take away from the coach's comments is that Morales won't lose at-bats during interleague play, putting the 33-year-old on track for a third-straight season of 550-plus at-bats.
