With fantasy rat­ing out of 5

Jon Jay OF, Di­a­mond­backs


Back in the NL fol­low­ing his trade from K.C., this week, ca­reer re­serve/ pla­toon was in­serted as the short-term ev­ery­day lead­off hit­ter which per­fectly suits his skillset as an on-base ma­chine (.290 ca­reer AVG, .356 OBP) with a touch of basepath speed. If he can keep get­ting on base, his in­creased runs to­tals could make him a fantasy bar­gain un­til A.J. Pol­lock and Steven Souza re­turn from the DL.

Sam Gav­iglio SP, Blue Jays


He’s made four starts since join­ing the in­jury­wracked Toronto ro­ta­tion last month, all of which, while not qual­ity starts by def­i­ni­tion, cer­tainly were in prac­ti­cal terms. His sea­son ERA is now 2.51, his WHIP 0.98 and it’s go­ing to be hard to get him out of there at this point.

Jake Bauers 1B, Rays


One of Tampa’s top hit­ting prospects, he made his de­but Thurs­day, but went 0-for-8 in his first two out­ings. Still, there’s plenty to like about the 22-year-old lefty who was hit­ting .279 at triple-A with five HRs and 10 SBs, not the least of which is that the go­ing-nowhere Rays can af­ford to give him a long look.
