Description: Blue Jays center fielder Colby Rasmus needs to be in the lineup against the Orioles, for Tuesday night's game.
Insight: No doubt Rasmus has struggled this season from an average perspective (.226/.288/.449). However, he should be in the lineup tonight when Toronto takes on Ubaldo Jimenez. Rasmus is a career .370 hitter (10-for-27) against him, with seven extra-base hits. If he is active, Rasmus makes for an intriguing daily fantasy play tonight.
