  • Kevin Gausman Earns Quality Start, No-Decision Monday

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Kevin Gausman kept his team in the game in Monday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Yankees. Gausman took a no-decision but pitched 6 1/3 innings, allowing two runs on six hits (including a solo home run) and a walk with seven strikeouts. Gausman has now been a high-end fantasy starter for three straight seasons, going 12-10 with a 3.30 ERA and 10.54 K/9 rate through 30 starts. He will have the opportunity to wrap up the regular season on a high note with his final matchup coming at home against the Red Sox.

  • Ricky Tiedemann Named Toronto's Minor League Pitcher Of The Year

    Toronto Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Tiedemann was named the team's Minor League Pitcher of the Year in 2022. The 20-year-old southpaw dominated at three different levels this year, finishing with a combined 5-4 record, 2.17 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, 117 strikeouts and 29 walks in 78 2/3 innings over 18 starts with Single-A Dunedin, High-A Vancouver and Double-A New Hampshire. He is the team's top prospect, per MLB Pipeline, and has put himself in the conversation as one of the best young pitchers in the game. The 6-foot-4, 220-pounder made physical gains this year that led to a jump in velocity. The 20-year-old has a mid-to-high-90s fastball, a wipeout slider and a solid changeup.

  • Mitch White Recalled To Start On Friday

    Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Mitch White has been recalled to make the start against the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday. The 27-year-old holds a 5.05 ERA, 1.41 WHIP. and 71/30 K/BB ratio through 16 starts this season. He looked solid during a spot start last week, so it appears the team wants to give him another shot. However, manager John Schneider hinted that the team might go to the bullpen early in this one. That being said, it's tough to call White a possible streaming option for Friday.

  • Blue Jays Place Santiago Espinal On Injured List

    The Toronto Blue Jays have placed infielder Santiago Espinal on the 10-day injured list with a left oblique strain, per a team announcement.

  • Santiago Espinal Retreats To The Bench

    Toronto Blue Jays infielder Santiago Espinal (side) is not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Rays. Espinal dealt with left side discomfort on Wednesday and was forced to leave the game early. It remains to be seen if he'll be able to return to the lineup on Friday, but fantasy managers should view him as day-to-day for now. The 27-year-old has been swinging it well this month, going 13-for-45 (.289) with no homers, seven RBI, seven runs and a steal in 17 games, so hopefully he's not out for long. With Espinal out, Cavan Biggio will start at the keystone and bat ninth on Thursday against Rays right-hander JT Chargois. Biggio only has 238 at-bats for Toronto in 2022 and is hitting .206 (49 hits) with six home runs, 24 RBI, 40 runs and two thefts.

  • Santiago Espinal Removed From Wednesday's Contest

    Toronto Blue Jays infielder Santiago Espinal (side) was removed early during Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies. The 27-year-old was forced out of this game due to left side discomfort. The severity of the injury is unknown at the moment. Although, it's worth noting that side and oblique issues do have a tendency to linger. Fantasy managers should expect an update possibly after the contest or sometime on Thursday.

  • Will Robertson Showing Progress

    Toronto Blue Jays outfield prospect Will Robertson, 24, was drafted in the fourth round of the 2019 draft. He has made a slow but steady ascension in the Jays' farm system, reaching Double-A in 2022. With the New Hampshire affiliate, Robertson has boasted solid power but struggled with discipline, striking out too much and walking too little. This has plagued him in the past; he hit just .235 with a 30.2 K% at High-A last season. Throughout Robertson's struggles, he has also demonstrated good things. This past week, the outfielder hit an impressive 7-for-16 (.438) with three homers, five RBI, two walks, and just one strikeout. It's unclear if he can sustain this blend of power and discipline, but it's refreshing to see that he is at least capable of boasting offensive prowess from time to time.

  • Alejandro Kirk Returns To Starting Lineup

    Toronto Blue Jays catcher Alejandro Kirk (hip) is back in the starting lineup on Tuesday against the Philadelphia Phillies and right-hander Kyle Gibson, serving as the designated hitter while batting cleanup. Kirk missed nearly a week with his injury, but he's back in there for fantasy managers on Tuesday. The 23-year-old right-handed hitting backstop is hitting a solid .289 (13-for-45) with no home runs, eight RBI and four runs scored in 11 games in the month of September. Kirk has been one of the best hitting catchers in baseball in 2022, slashing .295/.379/.432 with an .811 OPS, 13 long balls, 59 RBI and 56 runs scored in 424 at-bats in a potent Toronto lineup. Get him back into your starting lineups.

  • Alejandro Kirk Remains Out For The Jays

    Toronto Blue Jays catcher Alejandro Kirk (hip) is still absent from the Blue Jays starting lineup on Saturday against the Baltimore Orioles. The 23-year-old backstop is going to miss his fourth consecutive contest due to tightness in his left hip. The issue isn't serious enough to warrant an IL stint as he should be available off the bench but fantasy managers need to consider him day-to-day. Danny Jansen has been filling in for the 2022 All-Star during his absence.

  • Alejandro Kirk Out With Hip Tightness

    Toronto Blue Jays catcher Alejandro Kirk (hip) is dealing with some left hip tightness, which is why he's out of the starting lineup on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Rays. Toronto thinks Kirk could be available off the bench, though, so he's considered day-to-day. Fantasy managers need to act accordingly and move Kirk to their benches for Thursday's action. The 23-year-old has been great with the bat this year, slashing .295/.379/.432 with an .811 OPS, 13 home runs, 59 RBI and 56 runs scored in 424 at-bats. His hip injury could explain a recent cold stretch at the plate. In his absence, Gabriel Moreno will get the start behind the dish and will hit eighth against Rays left-hander Shane McClanahan. Moreno is hitting .276 (16-for-58) in 2022, but he's still searching for his first home run in his rookie season.
