— Player Notes
Advice: Tulo missed much of September with a small crack in his shoulder blade and acknowledged this week that he is not yet 100 percent, but the star shortstop will play through the pain for however long the Blue Jays can make a run. The full starting lineup for Game 1: Ben Revere LF, Josh Donaldson 3B, Jose Bautista RF, Edwin Encarnacion DH, Troy Tulowitzki SS, Justin Smoak 1B, Russell Martin C, Ryan Goins 2B, Kevin Pillar CF. David Price is on the mound for the Jays, who are in their first postseason since 1993.Rotoworld
Advice: Tulowitzki suffered a small crack in his shoulder blade in a collision with teammate Kevin Pillar on September 12, but he returned to action over the weekend and went 3-for-8 in two games. "I'm not pain-free," said Tulowitzki. "Some soreness in there, as can be expected. But that doesn't mean I can't play." With Tulo back in the lineup, Ryan Goins will likely move back to second base while Cliff Pennington will slide into a bench role.

Advice: It's as if the hard-hitting shortstop didn't miss a beat. He showed no signs of rust after having been sidelined since September 12 due to a crack in his shoulder blade. He's expected to be rested on Saturday and will play in the regular season finale on Sunday.Sat, Oct 3 Rotoworld
Advice: Tulowitzki's already in Friday's lineup against the Rays, so that part of the equation is complete. He last played on September 12, missing multiple weeks due to a crack in his left shoulder blade. Obviously, this tentative weekend plan of play, off, play could change if there are any setbacks on Friday.

Advice: Tulo hadn't played since September 12, as he's been working his way back from a crack in his left shoulder blade. He'll be playing shortstop and batting seventh on Friday. Prior to the injury, he was hitting .232/.3414/.368 with five homers and 17 RBI across 39 games with the Blue Jays. Those in daily leagues could roll the dice and hope that the ultra-talented Tulowitski has a vintage game, but we would advise against it, both due to the long layoff and his poor numbers even before the injury.Rotoworld
Advice: Tulowitzki indicated that his muscles are still a little sore, but he feels that he is rebounding well overall. He hasn't played since September 12 due to a small break in his left shoulder blade. The soon-to-be-31 Tulo was hitting just .232/.314/.368 with five homers and 17 RBI over 39 games with the Blue Jays prior to the injury. He could play in this weekend's series against the Rays.Rotoworld
Advice: Assuming all goes well, he could make his return to the Blue Jays' lineup on Saturday. Tulowitzki hasn't played since September 12 with a small crack in his left shoulder blade, but he expects to be ready to go for the postseason.

Advice: Tulo probably could have played Thursday and/or Friday, but the Jays clinched the American League East on Wednesday so they'll play it safe. The star shortstop has been out since September 12 with a small crack in his left scapula. He took another successful round of batting practice on Thursday morning.

Advice: There was some thought that Tulo might return Thursday, but that idea was probably nixed after the Jays clinched the AL East on Wednesday. Toronto is running out a lineup of reserves Thursday afternoon in Baltimore. Tulo should get in some action over the weekend and then be locked and loaded for the playoffs. He's been out since September 12 with a small crack in his left scapula.
