Player Notes
Jose Bautista (shoulder) is back in the Blue Jays' lineup Monday.

Advice: He's in the designated hitter spot and batting cleanup. Bautista admitted that he still has some soreness and tightness in his right shoulder, but he plans to play through it going forward after missing the previous five games. The slugger sports a .149/.322/.426 batting line with four home runs this season.

Jose Bautista (shoulder) is planning to take batting practice before Monday's game in Boston.

Advice: He won't be in the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Monday night, but Bautista does expect to return at some point during this three-game series at Fenway Park. The 34-year-old slugger has been out since last Tuesday with a right shoulder strain. He had four home runs and 10 RBI in 14 games before the injury.

Jose Bautista (shoulder) is hoping to return to the lineup during the series versus the Red Sox early this week.

Advice: Bautista hasn't played since Tuesday due to a sore right shoulder, although he reported continued improvement on Sunday. The club will ease the outfielder back into things in the designated hitter spot initially before eventually returning him to the field. Michael Saunders is in right field Sunday.

Jose Bautista (shoulder) is likely to return to the lineup at some point over the weekend.

Advice: Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said that Bautista's sore right shoulder is improving rapidly to the point that he's ruled out the possibility of a disabled list stint. The club will ease the outfielder back into things in the designated hitter spot initially before eventually returning him to the field.

Jose Bautista (shoulder) remained out of the Blue Jays' lineup Friday.

Advice: The Jays are still confident that Joey Bats will be able to avoid the disabled list, but he'll miss a third straight contest with a right shoulder strain. Kevin Pillar is in right field Friday, with Steve Tolleson in left.

The Blue Jays most likely won't be placing Jose Bautista (shoulder) on the disabled list.

Advice: Good signs here. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said that Bautista "felt much better [on Thursday]." The slugger suffered a right shoulder strain on Tuesday trying to throw out Delmon Young at first base. While he's apparently improving, Bautista is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles. He'll try swinging on Friday and see how the shoulder reacts.

Jose Bautista (shoulder) is not in the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Thursday evening.

Advice: Bautista suffered a right shoulder strain Tuesday when he tried to gun Delmon Young out at first base from his position in right field. The slugger could be placed on the 15-day disabled list if he doesn't show improvement by the weekend. Kevin Pillar is starting in right field and Danny Valencia is in left field Thursday against the Orioles.

Jose Bautista was unable to make warmup throws on Wednesday due to soreness in his right shoulder and could need a trip to the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: Bautista had been dealing with shoulder soreness for over a week and aggravated it Tuesday when he tried to throw Delmon Young out at first base from his position in right field. Kevin Pillar is starting Wednesday in Bautista's place. "Joey Bats" slugged his fourth home run of the season in Tuesday's rout of the Orioles but he has an odd .149/.322/.426 overall batting line.

Jose Bautista is not in the Blue Jays' lineup Wednesday.

Advice: We're sure it's a total coincidence that he's sitting one day after getting into it with a few Orioles players. Kevin Pillar is in right field Wednesday in Bautista's place, with Ryan Goins handling left.

Wed, Apr 22 Rotoworld
Jose Bautista hit a two-run home run -- his only hit in five at-bats -- in Tuesday's trouncing of the Orioles.

Advice: Bautista added insult to injury with a seventh-inning blast off of Jason Garcia, pushing the Blue Jays' lead to 13-4. He has four home runs, but has had numerous oh-for's and one-for's this season, resulting in a lopsided .149/.322/.426 triple-slash line. Like his struggling teammate Edwin Encarnacion, who homered twice on Tuesday, we don't expect his offensive woes to persist.
