Chris Coghlan Blue Jays
.
With Josh Donaldson (calf) on the shelf for 2-4 weeks, Chris Coghlan has earned a pair of starts for the Toronto Blue Jays. In those starts he is one for five (.200) with an RBI.
.
Last year struggled hitting .188 with 35 runs, six home runs, 30 RBI and a pair of stolen bases. He was far more effective in 2015 with a .250-64-16-41-11 line.
.
Coghlan’s lone hit this year came against right-handed pitching (.250). Last year he hit .195 vs. righties and .120 against lefties. In 2015 he hit .264 against righties and .116 against lefties. Coghlan is a career .260 hitter (.268 against righties, .226 against lefties).
.
I would’t recommend picking him up in regular fantasy leagues, but he’s worth a look in daily games when he’s facing a mediocre right-handed pitcher.
.
Darwin Barney should also see some at bats. He’s hitting .455 (.500 against lefties and .400 against righties). Last year Barney hit .269 (.306 against lefties and .249 against righties). For his career the .250 batter is hitting .275 against lefties and .240 against righties.
.
Look for Barney to handle southpaws. He’s also only viable in daily fantasy leagues against mediocre lefties.
.
The way that Toronto is playing (2-10, 2.83 runs per game), I wouldn’t rush out to pick up either of them.

Martin Perez
.
Martin Perez, Texas Rangers at Oakland A’s
Perez is 1-1 with a 2.20 ERA with a 1.80 ERA in his road start. He was 2-1 against Oakland last year with a 4.00 ERA.
.
Season Totals:  14 starts, 3-7, 79.1 IP, 52 Ks, 4.65 ERA (41 earned runs), 1.42 WHIP (83 hits, 30 walks)
