|Blue Jays to platoon Colby Rasmus, Darin Mastroianni |

(7/7/14) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons will platoon outfielders Colby Rasmus and Darin Mastroianni "[a]t least until someone gets hot," MLB.com reports.
The lefty Rasmus will likely see a majority of the time, and he has hit .230/.265/.500 with 10 home runs and 23 RBI in 148 at-bats against right-handers this season. The righty Mastroianni has a career .245/.308/.311 line in 106 at-bats against southpaws.

|Colby Rasmus dealing with a wrist issue Thursday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|

|Colby Rasmus hits second HR in last four games |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/1/14) Blue Jays outfielder Colby Rasmus homered during a 4-1 win Tuesday against the Brewers. Rasmus made it 2-0 when he led off the fifth inning with a home run off Marco Estrada.
Rasmus hit his 12th home run Tuesday and second in four games. Rasmus is batting .244 (11 for 45) with two doubles, three home runs and eight RBI in 13 games since coming off the disabled list in mid-June.
|Colby Rasmus had arguably the best stat line of his career in 2013 -- unfortunately, he put it up across just 118 games, as his season was interrupted by a sore oblique and then cut short when he was hit in the face with a warm-up throw from Anthony Gose in September. Rasmus hit .276 with 22 home runs and posted an .840 OPS. It was his best season since a 2010 would-be breakout with St. Louis. And most encouraging was the manner in which the numbers were produced -- Rasmus, usually a streaky hitter, spread his home runs evenly throughout the season. While he had hot streaks in July and September, he didn't have the violent production swings that had dotted his career in the past. Still, Rasmus can be frustrating, as he shows flashes of brilliance and then tempers any excitement by going cold. He's a third outfielder in Head-to-Head points leagues, but has a chance for a legitimate breakout as he enters his age 27 season. He can be taken in the middle-to-late rounds of most drafts.
