Latest Update Colby Rasmus scratched from Thursday's lineup. Thu Jul, 31, 07:52 PM
Is very athletic and blessed with a fine mix of size, speed and power at the plate. A good hitter who knows how to take a walk, he also has the range and versatility to play a quality center field.
Flaws: : Has some holes in his swing and will strike out in bunches. Needs to keep polishing up his whole game. Is mildly injury-prone. Doesn't use his speed enough on the base-paths.
Rasmus was scratched from the lineup because of "tardiness." He's been serially late dating back to the weekend and it's unknown how long the benching will last. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Rasmus has now hit safely in four straight games, while totaling three extra-base hits and three RBI in that span. However, he is still hitting just .233 on the season, so unless you can afford to take a hit in batting average for a power boost (14 HR), he should remain a fringe fantasy starter moving forward. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Good way for Jays center fielder to start of the second half of the season, who now has four hits in his last 13 at-bats (.308) after going hitless in his previous 14 at-bats. Rasmus is that type of player that produces in small bunches and with plenty of home games over the next week or so he may be worth rostering, at least in the short-term.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Gibbons seems to have opened his manager's handbook to the platoon section recently. It is tough to stay atop a division, so making moves to keep the offense on track is always a smart move.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
