Jose Bautista hoping Melky Cabrera remains with Blue Jays
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/22/14) Blue Jays star teammate Jose Bautista has handicapped a return of free agent outfielder Melky Cabrera at about 50-50, per Sportsnet.
"I think he's going to allow the team a chance to come and match any offer that he might get out on the free agent market," Bautista said. "I think the Blue Jays are going to have a shot at bringing him back so hopefully for our fan base and for my sake - making my job easier and having him on base a lot, because he does get on base a lot with his bat - hopefully the team does take that chance and re-sign him somehow."
Cabrera performed well in his second season with Toronto, compiling a stat line of .301/.351/.458 and scoring 81 runs.

Jose Bautista goes deep in third straight
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(8/30/14) Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista homered for the third straight game Friday, in a 6-3 loss to the Yankees.
Bautista had just one hit in the game, his solo home run to open the scoring in the fourth quarter. He went 1 for 3 with one RBI and one run scored for the third game in a row, as each of his homers in this streak has been of the solo variety.
Bautista now has 27 home runs and 80 RBI in 459 at-bats on the season, while hitting .283/.399/.512 overall.
|2014 summary: Jose Bautista entered 2014 with the Blue Jays on a slow and steady decline, his slugging percentage dropping for three consecutive seasons as the injuries became more prevalent. But he reversed both trends last season, finishing with the majors' 12th-best slugging percentage (minimum 400 at-bats) while playing 155 games to re-emerge as a top-flight Fantasy option. In Head-to-Head points leagues, he was the fifth-best hitter on a per-game basis (again, minimum 400 at-bats), and with one of his better batting averages, he was no slouch in Rotisserie either.|
Playing time status: Bautista had averaged just 119.7 games in the three seasons leading up to 2014, missing most of the time because of injuries to his wrist, back and hip. His high-torque swing, which is how he generates so much bat speed, predisposes him to such injuries, keeping him something of a risk at age 34.
2015 outlook: Even during his decline, Bautista remained one of the game's best power hitters, and his terrific batting eye makes him a stud in Head-to-Head points leagues regardless of his batting average. He's a clear first-rounder in those formats even with the perceived injury risk but might slide to the second round in Rotisserie leagues since he's sometimes a liability in batting average.
