On Canada Day Rajai Davis was a catalyst for the Toronto Blue Jays, going 2-5 with a double, two run scored, and stealing two bags. The two hit performance marks the sixth consecutive game he’s hit safely and come as part of seven consecutive starts for the speedy outfielder.

While Davis is no lock to stay in the lineup long term with Melky Cabrera on the disabled list there is short term playing time aplenty and there are much less appealing sources of steals. On the season, Davis is batting .321 with 25 runs scored to go with 21 swipes, and over the past week since joining the starting lineup he’s a remarkable 10/26 with 7 steals and 7 runs scored.

Owned in just 23% of Yahoo! leagues he’ll be batting in front of Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion as part of a Blue Jays order that has found its collective stroke of late. While Davis is unlikely to be a long term answer in your fantasy outfield he currently seems like a lock for playing time until Cabrera returns and perhaps even a useful spot start for the duration of the season.
