Ryan Borucki Making Progress

Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Ryan Borucki (elbow), who was shut down early in camp due to tightness and pain in his left elbow, has been making progress and is working with a personal trainer in Florida and is playing catch with catcher Danny Jansen. The Blue Jays are playing it safe with Borucki with the season delayed due to the coronavirus, but he's optimistic things are moving in the right direction. The southpaw has already had Tommy John surgery and had bone spurs removed from his elbow in 2019, which caused him to miss most of the season. He's back to throwing bullpens and feels good while long tossing, so he could be ready for the start of the season, whenever that may be. Given how much time Borucki missed last year, the Blue Jays will play it safe with him, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him start the 2020 season in a relief role, which would obviously limit his fantasy potential. If he's making starts this season, he'll mostly be a streaming candidate in AL-only leagues.

Joe Panik Cracks Blue Jays 40-Man Roster

Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Joe Panik has officially made the teams 40-man roster, with reliever Yennsy Diaz getting placed on the 60-day IL in a corresponding move. Panik had an opt-out in his contract, but the club purchased it to give them more depth in their infield. The 29-year-old hit .244 across 142 games split between the Giants and Mets, and has just nine homers and eight steals over his past two seasons combined. He doesnt offer much in the fantasy game other than some middling counting stats, so he can be ignored in all formats.

Randal Grichuk Slugs Two Long Balls

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Randal Grichuk cranked a pair of long balls in Wednesday's 14-2 Grapefruit League thumping of the Orioles. He finished the afternoon going 3-for-3 with three runs and five RBI as he's now batting a crisp .320 this spring with three homers. Grichuk will serve as the everyday center fielder for the Jays this season, where he'll likely bat sixth most days in an improved lineup. The 28-year-old makes a cheap power source option in mixed-leagues after clubbing 31 homers in 2019, but it will come at the expense of some points in batting average.

Lourdes Gurriel Doubles Twice On Wednesday

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Lourdes Gurrielupped his spring batting average to .360 on Wednesday, going 2-for-2 versus the Orioles. Both hits went for doubles as he collected three runs and a pair of RBI, but he's still in search of his first long ball. Gurriel will bat third for the Jays this season, which is prime real estate ahead of Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and behind Bo Bichette and Cavan Biggio. His counting stats are sure to pile up, providing he stays on the field, making the 26-year-old a highly sought-after bat in the middle rounds of drafts.

Teoscar Hernandez Nearly Past Minor Groin Issue

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez (groin) is feeling better after experiencing some groin soreness last week and is expected to play in the outfield as soon as Tuesday. Hernandez was able to DH in Monday's game, where he went 0-for-1 with a pair of walks in the team's split-squad game versus the Pirates. He has a good path to near everyday at-bats in 2020 as he'll serve as the Jays primary right fielder while subbing in as the DH to give Rowdy Tellez a breather versus southpaws. After clubbing 26 dingers in 126 games last year, the 27-year-old is a decent power target in the late rounds of drafts, although his batting average could become a category drain.
