Player Outlook
Daulton Varsho, like many other Jays, did not get the expected offensive bump to his numbers when the club reconfigured Rogers Centre. In fact, Varsho's numbers backslid in his first season with the club from what he did with Arizona the previous season. His season was weird in that he hit all 20 of his homers off righties, but hit just .202 against them while the lefty hit .292 against fellow southpaws. That means 53 of his last 54 homers have come against righties but his batting average has been better against lefties. His heavy pull approach to batted balls was not saved by the adjustments to the shifting rules and his increasing flyball rate did not help those matters either. Varsho's fantasy value takes the additional hit this season of him losing that sweet catcher eligibility he has possessed the last couple of seasons which has inflated his draft day value. This profile goes from an above-average catching option to a below average outfield option on draft day.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Sits against lefty

    Varsho is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies. The lefty-hitting Varsho will be shielded from southpaw Kyle Freeland as the Blue Jays counter with a right-handed-heavy lineup for the series finale. Varsho had started in each of the last four games and provided the most important hit of Saturday's 5-3 win, with his two-out, first-inning grand slam holding up as the difference in the victory.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Powers club with grand slam

    Varsho went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Rockies. Varsho punctuated a five-run first inning against Colorado starter Dakota Hudson with a grand slam, his second homer in as many days after he went 13 games without a long ball to begin the season. The 27-year-old still has yet to attempt a stolen base in 2024. He will likely need to provide some speed in order to remain relevant in mixed rotisserie leagues now that he's lost catcher eligibility.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Swats first homer of 2024

    Varsho went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Rockies. The 27-year-old outfielder came into the season trying to focus on hard contact rather than aiming for the fences, but the new approach hasn't translated into much production -- Friday's long ball was not only Varsho's first homer of the year, it was his first RBI. He's batting .190 (8-for-42) through 14 games, but he does have a modest three-game hit streak going.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Not in Monday's lineup

    Varsho is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mariners. Varsho is just 4-for-30 through 10 games this season, and he'll take a seat Monday against Seattle righty Luis Castillo. Davis Schneider will receive the start in left field and bat fifth.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Sitting versus southpaw

    Varsho isn't in Toronto's lineup for Tuesday's game against Houston. Southpaw Framber Valdez will take the mound for Houston to begin Tuesday's contest, meaning the left-handed bat of Varsho will start the game on the bench. Davis Schneider will fill the void in left field and bat fifth.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Late scratch with personal issue

    Varsho was scratched from the lineup Monday for the Blue Jays' Grapefruit League game against the Pirates due to a personal matter, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports. Though Varsho will miss the Blue Jays' spring finale, the team hasn't indicated that his availability for Thursday's season opener in Tampa Bay is in any peril. Varsho is expected to serve as the Blue Jays' everyday left fielder in 2024 and should occupy a spot in the middle-third of the batting order versus right-handed pitching.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Runs wild against Yanks

    Varsho went 2-for-2 with a walk, a run scored and three stolen bases in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees. The 27-year-old left fielder is now a perfect 6-for-6 on the basepaths this spring while batting .400 (12-for-30) with three doubles and an outstanding 8:2 BB:K. Varsho worked on his swing over the winter to try and emphasize line drives instead of selling out for power, and the results in camp suggest the approach is working. If he can produce more hits and get on base more often, Varsho could top the career-high 16 stolen bases he's recorded each of the last two seasons.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Looking good at plate

    Varsho went 2-for-3 with a run scored and two RBI in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees. The 27-year-old outfielder spent the offseason working to level out his swing and get away from the power-oriented approach he used in 2023, and so far this spring the change has yielded good results. Through 10 Grapefruit League contests, Varsho is batting .364 (8-for-22) with two doubles, two steals and a 6:1 BB:K. He's never hit above .246 in a big-league season, but a focus on making better contact could lead to a career-best performance in that category while still producing double-digit homers and steals.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Focused on correcting swing

    Varsho felt he sold out for power in 2023 and got away from the swing that had given him success prior to being traded to the Blue Jays, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports. "(That) got me just underneath the ball," Varsho said Saturday, "missing a lot of pitches that I should be hammering and getting in bad counts when you're fouling off the ball you should be hitting." The 27-year-old still supplied the Jays with excellent defense in left and center field, but his .674 OPS was a disappointment after Varsho had posted a .748 OPS with the Diamondbacks in 2021-22. "It's not about how high you hit it, it's about how hard you hit it and how low on a line," he said. "That was my approach going into this offseason... being able to get that feel back of staying above the baseball." Given his age and pedigree, it's possible Varsho hasn't reached his ceiling yet at the plate, but the Jays -- and those with fantasy shares in him -- would be content to see him simply regain his prior form.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Gets $5.7 million for 2024

    Varsho signed a one-year, $5.7 million contract with the Blue Jays on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. Varsho had a disappointing first season in Toronto, as he managed only a .674 OPS across 580 plate appearances. He still totaled 20 home runs, 61 RBI, 16 stolen bases and was excellent with the glove, the latter of which should keep him safely in the lineup on most days.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Homers, drives in three

    Varsho went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and one run scored in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the Rays. Varsho launched a leadoff homer in his first at-bat to give the Blue Jays their first run of the game and later added a two-run single to put Toronto on top 3-2. The left fielder has now homered in two of his last three games and four of his last 10, tallying eight RBI over that latter stretch. He's also recorded two hits in three of his last seven games.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Takes seat Wednesday

    Varsho is not in the lineup Wednesday versus the Yankees. Whit Merrifield, Kevin Kiermaier and George Springer will start across the outfield. Varsho has put up 18 homers and 16 steals in 154 games this season with Toronto, but he holds an underwhelming .220/.285/.382 overall batting line.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Swats 17th homer

    Varsho went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Red Sox. His fifth-inning shot off Nick Pivetta snapped a 23-game homer drought for Varsho, who slashed a feeble .185/.274/.262 over that stretch with zero steals, five RBI and seven runs. It's been a tough first season in Toronto for the 27-year-old, but despite a .663 OPS that's well below the level he's established in Arizona, he's still produced his second straight 15-15 campaign with 17 home runs and 15 stolen bases in 148 games.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Homer, stolen base in win

    Varsho went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and a steal in Tuesday's 6-3 win over Baltimore. Varsho put the Blue Jays ahead 2-1 with a two-run homer off Grayson Rodriguez in the second inning, his 16th of the year and third in his last seven games. Over that span, Varsho's gone 9-for-23 (.391) with a 1.370 OPS, boosting his slash line to .224/.288/.388 with 52 runs scored, 47 RBI and 15 stolen bases across 463 plate appearances this season.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Swipes 14th bag

    Varsho went 2-for-3 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's 4-3 victory over the Reds. Varsho contributed in myriad ways, reaching on a bunt single in the second inning, ripping an RBI base hit in the fourth and adding a ninth-inning stolen base after drawing a walk. The 27-year-old outfielder has now hit safely in five of his last six games, going 7-for-19 with two doubles, two home runs, eight RBI, five runs scored and a stolen base during that stretch.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Swats 15th homer

    Varsho went 1-for-2 with a walk and a two-run home run in Wednesday's 9-4 loss to the Phillies. He gave the Jays an early 2-1 lead in the second inning by taking Aaron Nola deep, but it was the only extra-base hit Philly pitching gave up all night. Varsho has had a tough first campaign with Toronto, but he could be turning things around for the stretch run. Over his last 12 games, the 27-year-old outfielder is batting .278 (10-for-36) with three of his 15 homers on the year and 10 of his 44 RBI.
