Blue Jays place Cavan Biggio (back/neck) on injured list
The Toronto Blue Jays placed infielder Cavan Biggio on the 10-day injured list due to back and neck discomfort.
Biggio has apparently been bothered by the issue for a while, which could potentially explain his dip in production this season. The Blue Jays are optimistic that Biggio will be able to return to the active roster when first eligible. Toronto activated outfielder Corey Dickerson (back) from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding roster move. Dickerson is making his Blue Jays debut on Tuesday night against right-hander Zach Plesac and the Cleveland Indians. He is batting sixth as the designated hitter while Marcus Semien is on second base in place of Biggio.
numberFire’s models project Dickerson for 8.5 FanDuel points and he has a $2,000 salary on Tuesday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Blue Jays have an implied total of 4.9 runs. Plesac's strikeout percentage this season (15.9) ranks in the bottom sixth percent of the league, but his walk percentage (4.9) is in the top 92nd percentile.
