Matt Dominguez earns start at first base for Blue Jays

Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Matt Dominguez is playing first base and hitting sixth for Wednesday's showdown with the Chicago White Sox.

What It Means:

Dominguez was called up on Tuesday to help serve as a right-handed bat in lieu of the suspended Chris Colabello (performance enhancing drugs). He sees a start on Wednesday (hist first career start at first base) against left-hander Jose Quintana, though manager John Gibbons indicated that moving forward, Justin Smoak will likely see the bulk of starts at first. Dominguez held a nice .311/.333/.475 triple-slash with 14 RBI's through 17 games at Triple-A Buffalo, but as a career .233 hitter in the majors, offers little fantasy upside.

Dominguez did not play in the majors in 2015, and his last big league action came in 2014 with the Houston Astros. He slashed .215/.256/.330 with a .260 wOBA (which ranked 2nd worst) in 157 games played that season, but did manage to slug 16 homers.
