News: Rasmus will start in center field Friday night against the Indians, MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm reports. Impact: Rasmus has not played center field since exiting Sunday's game with a sore hamstring, but he is feeling good enough to start there Friday night, so the injury should be behind him. Rasmus will bat sixth against Indians starter Justin Masterson.(RotoWire, )

News: Rasmus (hamstring) will serve as the designated hitter in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader, Barry Davis of Sportsnet.ca reports. Impact: Rasmus expressed some uncertainty Thursday morning as to whether he would play in either game, but apparently the team is confident enough in his health to allow him to DH. It seems likely, however, that the M's will hold Rasmus out of Game 2, as to protect against any possible setback.(RotoWire, )

News: Rasmus (hamstring) could play Wednesday, according to manager John Gibbons, but with the weather being extremely cold in Minnesota, it would not be surprising if Rasmus got another day off, MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm reports. Impact: Gibbons said he still doesn't believe Rasmus' ailment is serious, and just wanted to give him more time to rest Tuesday. It sounds like Wednesday is a possible return date for Rasmus, and if not, he should be back sooner than later.(RotoWire, )

News: Rasmus (hamstring) is out of the Blue Jays' lineup Tuesday at Minnesota. Impact: Yielding center field to Jose Bautista, while Moises Sierra enters in right, Rasmus won't start for just the second time this season. However, the historically fragile Rasmus has an acceptable reason for his absence: a tight hamstring. Consider him day-to-day for now, after launching three moonshots in his previous 16 at-bats.(RotoWire, )

News: Rasmus was 3 for 4 on Sunday against Baltimore, hitting his third homer in four games. Impact: Rasmus is 8 for 19 over his last five games after starting 2 for 27 through his first eight contests.(STATS, 6:08pm)

News: Rasmus (hamstring) doesn't think the injury that forced him to leave Sunday's game is serious, Sportsnet reports. "Just to make sure it's nothing big and we've got an off day, and we were up in the game," said Rasmus, "I decided to come out just to make sure everything's good." Impact: For owners facing a weekly lineup deadline, Rasmus' availability for Tuesday's game seems to be on the more probably side of a questionable tag, especially when you consider that the Jays carried a seven-run lead Sunday at the time of his departure.(RotoWire, )

News: Rasmus left Sunday's game with hamstring tightness, but the injury doesn't appear to be serious, John Lott of the National Post reports. Impact: The move was likely precautionary given that the Jays were up big at the time. He should be back in the lineup for Toronto on Tuesday, but his status should be monitored in case something comes up.(RotoWire, )

News: Rasmus hit his second home run of the season Saturday -- a game-tying solo shot with two outs in the top of the ninth -- but it wasn't enough, as the Jays fell 2-1 to Baltimore in extra innings. Impact: The round tripper was Colby's 47th as a Jay and 100th of his 701-game career. He's had one of the more awful fantasy starts in baseball this season, going just 2-for-27 in his first eight games, but has started to turn it around recently with five hits over his last four games. He should continue to see a ton of at-bats, and subsequent opportunities to improve upon his .167 batting average, going forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Rasmus had three hits in Thursday's loss. Impact: Rasmus entered in a 3-for-30 slide.(STATS, 4:07pm)
Thu. Apr 10, 2014
News: Rasmus had his best game of the season Thursday, going 3-for-4 with a solo home run. It was his first multi-hit game of the year. Impact: Rasmus entered the game hitting just .100 (3-for-30), so he was overdue for a strong performance. Furthermore, his home run came against a lefty -- a good sign, considering southpaws have given him lots of trouble in his career. He's not out of the woods yet, but a three-hit game is a step in the right direction.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Apr 3, 2014
News: Rasmus went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Thursday's loss at Tampa Bay. Impact: Rasmus has opened the season in a funk, going 1-for-14. He's got plenty of power, but last season's .356 BABIP and high strikeout rate could foreshadow a major drop in batting average.(RotoWire, )
