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: Launches eighth homer

    Varsho went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Monday's win over the White Sox. The 27-year-old outfielder crushed a Erick Fedde changeup over the right-field fence in the second inning for his eighth long ball of the season. Varsho is batting just .182 (10-for-55) in May, but half his hits have gone for extra bases (three doubles, two homers) and he's stayed productive with two steals, nine runs and nine RBI in 14 games.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Swipes fifth bag

    Varsho went 0-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles. Batting second once again, Varsho stole his fifth base of the season in the fifth inning but was left stranded at third base in an eventual 3-2 loss. The 27-year-old is struggling to produce consistent contact -- he's batting only .150 (6-for-40) in May -- but over half of Varsho's 27 hits on the season have gone for extra bases, as he has eight doubles and seven homers.

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

    Varsho went 1-for-5 with a home run and two RBI Monday against the Orioles. Varsho's seventh-inning home run tied the game and opened the door for his 10th-inning RBI ground out that provided the winning run for the Blue Jays. Prior to Monday's blast, Varsho had not homered since April 22, hitting just .173 with four RBI over 52 at-bats during that 15 game stretch.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Receives night off

    Varsho is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals. Varsho won't face the left-handed Cole Ragans on Tuesday as the Blue Jays trot out a lineup of eight righties and Cavan Biggio. The outfielder is 1-for-14 (.071) across his last four games but will likely slide back into the Toronto lineup Wednesday when the Jays face RHP Seth Lugo.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Power surge continues Monday

    Varsho went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Monday's win over the Royals. The 27-year-old outfielder gave the Blue Jays some crucial insurance runs in the sixth inning by taking Brady Singer deep. Varsho has six homers on the season, and all of them have come in the last 10 games -- a stretch in which he's batting .355 (11-for-31) with three doubles, two steals, nine runs and 13 RBI.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Homers, steals bag in win

    Varsho went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run, a double, a stolen base and an additional run scored in Saturday's 5-2 win against the Padres. The 27-year-old started the scoring with a three-run shot to right field in the opening frame and collected two more knocks for his first three-hit game of the campaign. Varsho posted a .597 OPS in his first 17 contests of the season, but he's gone 6-for-15 with two doubles, three homers and two steals over his past four games.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Homers twice Wednesday

    Varsho went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the Yankees. Varsho opened the scoring with a two-run shot off Marcus Stroman in the second inning before extending Toronto's lead to 3-1 with a second homer off left-hander Caleb Ferguson in the seventh. The 27-year-old Varsho has heated up after a slow start to the year, going 8-for-25 (.320) with four homers in his last eight games. Overall, he's slashing .218/.295/.473 through his first 61 plate appearances this season.

  • 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.
