Latest Update The Blue Jays have outrighted infielder Munenori Kawasaki and first baseman Dan Johnson Wed Oct, 01, 08:02 PM
Displays good versatility afield, as well as sound fundamentals and a fairly good glove. Can steal bases, too. Is well loved by teammates (and also fans).
Flaws: : Doesn't own much pop in his bat at all, so he's more of a backup than everyday player at the highest level. Lacks the consistency of an everyday player.
Both players fill utility roles for the Blue Jays and will likely continue to be while within the organization. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
If only his stat lines were as great as his attitude; this guy would be pure fantasy gold if they did. He's one of the more likeable guys on the team, but with a .261 average, no power and not many flashes of speed, he's always going to be more of a plug-and-play type guy than a fantasy regular.Analyst: Howard Bender
Kawasaki is now slashing .306/.333/.361 with five RBI and four runs scored since returning from the All-Star break (36 AB), as he continues to be a utility infielder for the Blue Jays. Although his recent success could lead to a boost in fantasy production down the road, he is far from being a reliable fantasy option until we see more consistency from him down the line.

Perhaps this means we'll see Kawasaki in the field for the first-half finale and not have to worry about seeing Steve Tolleson at second base. Kawasaki is a spark plug for this team and his energy always makes him fun to watch. He's not the greatest fantasy contributor though, but he sure can be fun to watch.Analyst: Howard Bender
