Description: Blue Jays infielder Maicer Izturis will miss 4-to-6 months with a complete tear of the LCL in his left knee, according to Shi Davidi of sportsnet.ca.
Insight: Izturis tripped down the dugout steps during Sunday's game and tore the ligament. The 33-year-old has been getting most of the starts at second base but the job will now go to Ryan Goins (3-for-28 this season).
 
Hot4/11/2014 4:07:00 PM
Description: Jays infielder Maicer Izturis will make his fifth consecutive start at second base.
Insight: Izturis seems to surpasses Ryan Goins in the pecking order. That will happen when you are batting .385 with an .852 OPS.
 
8/22/2013 10:21:00 PM
Description: Jays second baseman Maicer Izturis has been placed on the 15-day DL.
Insight: Izturis sprained his ankle Tuesday against the Yankees. Munenori Kawasaki (.219, 1 HR, 22 RBI) will get most of the playing time at second base while Izturis is out.

Description: Toronto second baseman Maicer Izturis got the night off on Monday because of a tight hamstring. SOURCE: SportsNet
Insight: Izturis (.158, 2 HR, 2 RBI) hasn't been anything special this season, though his platoon mate Emilio Bonifacio (.189, 0 HR, 4 RBI) isn't exactly setting the world on fire either. Out of the two, Bonifacio is the more desireable fantasy option because of his speed (70 steals the past two seasons).
 
4/10/2013 10:02:00 AM
Description: Blue Jays second-base Maicer Izturis is a career .615 hitter (8-for-13) against Tigers starter Rick Porcello with three extra base hits and a 1.720 OPS.
Insight: Izturis will likely share the job with Emilio Bonifacio, but should get the start on Wednesday despite batting just .222 this season because of the favorable matchup.
 
2/17/2013 10:24:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said that the second-base job is "up for grabs" but admitted that Maicer Izturis "has probably got he edge" because he is a "regular middle infielder." SOURCE: NationalPost.com
Insight: Izturis has only totaled 400 at-bats once in his career. If he wins the job over Emilio Bonifacio, he could be a threat to steal 25-30 bases. Bonifacio would then serve as a super utility player capable of playing middle infield, third base and all three outfield spots.
 
11/8/2012 10:27:00 PM
Description: Former Angels infielder Maicer Izturis agreed to a three-year, $9 million deal with the Blue Jays on Thursday.
Insight: Izturis, a .276 hitter during his eight seasons in Los Angeles, could open the season as Toronto's starting second baseman.
 
7/16/2012 10:09:00 AM
Description: Angels 2B Maicer Izturis has faced Rick Porcello just eight times, but he's gotten on base six times including five hits.
Insight: Izturis is batting just .230, but he does have 11 stolen bases. Since 2B is relatively shallow in fantasy circles, Izturis is certainly worth considering, at least for one day
 
5/11/2011 5:31:00 AM
Description: Angels 2B Maicer Izturis went 2-5 in yesterday's win over the White Sox, hitting his third home run of the season.
Insight: Since 2B is relatively shallow in fantasy circles, Izturis is certainly worth considering, as he hit in the #3 spot in the Angels lineup.
 
3/23/2011 5:54:00 AM
Description: After going 0-4 yesterday, Maicer Izturis is batting .209 from the top of the order this spring.
Insight: He started off spring training as the team's preferred leadoff hitter but a man without a position. He will still get regular playing time to start the season but if he can't hit well he will be back to a typical back-up player.
 
3/16/2011 8:11:00 PM
Description: Maicer Izturis is hitting just .200 in spring training. He was named as the team's preferred leadoff hitter prior to the start of spring training.
Insight: The Angels lack a prototype leadoff hitter so they may be better off going with an on-base guy like Howie Kendrick. Izturis doesn't have a regular role and will need to hit better in April in order to squeeze his way into the lineup.
 
2/14/2011 5:02:00 PM
Description: Maicer Izturis will bat leadoff for the Angels when he is in the lineup. SOURCE: LA TIMES
Insight: He doesn't have a regular role but if he emerges as a leadoff hitter he might be able to carve out one. Erick Aybar, Howie Kendrick and Alberto Callaspo are standing in his way. None of those players are elite options so Izturis could force one to the bench if he can hit well. He is one of the more valuable backup players in the AL.
 
8/22/2010 8:33:00 PM
Description: Angels IF Maicer Izturis was placed on the 15-day DL with inflammation in his right shoulder. SOURCE: Yahoo Sports
Insight: This move should have little fantasy impact, as Izturis had minimal value in even the deepest AL-only leagues.
 
8/20/2010 7:26:00 PM
Description: Maicer Izturis was scratched tonight with a sore shoulder. SOURCE: ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER
Insight: The Angels will use Brandon Wood to fill in for him.
 
8/5/2010 7:36:00 AM
Description: Izturis went 2-for-5 with a double, RBI, stolen base and a run scored on Wednesday against the Orioles.
Insight: Izturis is now batting .225 with ten doubles and six steals so far this season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
7/21/2010 8:11:00 AM
Description: Izturis went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored on Tuesday against the Yankees.
Insight: Izturis hit his third home run of the season and now has 18 RBI in 31 games this year. (SportsBuff.com)
 
7/19/2010 7:13:00 AM
Description: Maicer Izturis has been activated from the DL.
Insight: He will play often enough to warrant use in deeper leagues. No one has really claimed the 3B job and there are always spot starts available at other IF spots.
 
7/16/2010 7:54:00 AM
Description: Izturis continues to work on coming back from a forearm injury as he hit on the field on Wednesday for the first time in a month.
Insight: Izturis has been out of action since June 15th and is likely only one or two weeks away from returning to action. (SportsBuff.com)
 
7/15/2010 11:05:00 AM
Description: Maicer Izturis resumed batting practice on Wednesday for the first time in over a month. He has missed time because of a forearm injury. SOURCE: LA Times
Insight: He could begin rehab games next week, but his return is unknown. He has not put up very good numbers when healthy, so is primarily an AL-only option.
 
6/6/2010 10:19:00 AM
Description: Izturis went 2-for-3 with a double, two RBI, walk and two runs scored on Saturday against the Mariners.
Insight: Izturis has four RBI over his last five games and now has 14 total on the season. (SportsBuff.com)
