Latest Update Kawasaki collects two hits, two RBI in Blue Jays win Fri Sep, 26, 10:12 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.
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
Just as we suspected when we reported earlier that he had left the games. Keep him listed as day-to-day and expect to see more of Steve Tolleson over the weekend.Analyst: Howard Bender
