Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the New York Yankees. Smoak will get a routine day off here to rest, but he's having a down year with the bat anyway. Brandon Drury will cover first base and bat seventh versus lefty James Paxton. Drury hasn't been great with the bat over the last two weeks, and doesn't seem like a valuable DFS option here.
Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Boston Red Sox. The Jays are having Smoak and Rowdy Tellez basically split time at this point in the season. Tellez will serve as the designated hitter and bat cleanup versus lefty Bobby Poyner. Tellez has been slapping the ball lately, but could have some struggles against the left-handed starter.
Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak (rest) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's series finale against the Rangers. The 32-year-old will get an off day as the recently called-up Rowdy Tellez will play first base and bat sixth against Rangers left-hander Kolby Allard. Smoak has struggled for a majority of the season, batting just .212 to go along with 19home runs and 52 RBI through 98 games. Smoak is not worth owning in mixed leagues with uncertainty about his playing time with Tellez back on the Major League roster.
