Latest Update Rasmus is not in the Blue Jays starting lineup on Wednesday. Wed Aug, 27, 03:47 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 is just dealing with an illness, but this will be the second game in a row he's missed. The bright side of things is that it's not an injury, so keep him listed as day-to-day and expect to see him back in the lineup soon.Analyst: Howard Bender
DFS players should take note, as some people could've used him as cheap option at outfield. Kevin Pillar will get the start in his place.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Rasmus is one of baseball's most prolific hackers, striking out in nearly one-third of his Plate appearances and sporting one of the MLB's worst overall contact rates (70.1%). He does, however, hit dingers. He now has 16 home runs in just 89 games. In essence, he's a poor man's Chris Carter, which isn't a compliment. Analyst: Spencer Silva
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
