Jose Bautista's recent hip injury has forced the Toronto Blue Jays to shut him down for the remainder of the MLB season.  This is not much of a problem for the MLB team, but for Fantasy Baseball owners fighting for that final playoff spot, or in the middle of their 1st round playoff matchup, this is bad.  Joey Bats has provided fantasy owners with 28 home runs and 73 RBI this season, for a Blue Jays team that disappointed all season.  Toronto is currently 11 games under .500 and will finish in last place in the American League East.Jose hasn't played since August 20th so most of you have probably already found a replacement, but now you can clear him from your bench and add any of the following players:YahooAndre Ethier - Dodgers (58%)Michael Brantley - Indians (39%)Adam Eaton - Diamondbacks (37%)Michael Morse - Orioles (37%)Emilio Bonifacio - Royals (37%)Dustin Ackley - Mariners (33%)ESPNChris Carter - Astros (55%)Adam Eaton - Diamondbacks (45%)Jarrod Dyson - Royals (31%)Avisail Garcia - White Sox (29%)Christian Yelich - Marlins (27%)Dustin Ackley - Mariners (23%)CBSChristian Yelich - Marlins (58%)Michael Morse - Orioles (53%)Avisail Garcia - White Sox (31%)Ryan Ludwick - Reds (21%)Jarrod Dyson - Royal (16%)Kole Calhoun - Angels (13%)
