How Much Should We Buy Into Rowdy Tellez’s Breakout?

How Much Should We Buy Into Rowdy Tellez’s Breakout?

Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports The Blue Jays’ lineup is crowded, with quality hitters established at every position except catcher and third base even before the additions of George Springer and Marcus Semien this winter. With those players in the fold, there’s bound to be a playing time crunch. The obvious loser in this competition is Randal Grichuk, who isn’t quite a starting centre fielder but is a little over-qualified to be a fourth outfielder, and who will now be pushed out of everyday playing time as long as the lineup is mostly healthy. The other guy who...

George Springer has a very well rounded skill set. With that in mind, where is the best spot for the Blue Jays to use him in their lineup? It’s a question that was posed to Charlie Montoyo on Thursday, and he gave a pretty fair answer, saying “I see him anywhere in the top three”.

On the timing of making a contending push

On the timing of making a contending push

Photo by Tom Szczerbowski/ Revisiting the Blue Jays of the mid/late 1990s and perhaps a cautionary tale On the cusp of Spring Training, the future for the Blue Jays looks bright. An exciting nucleus of young players appears poised for bigger things, and adding George Springer and Marcus Semien among others on top of Hyun-Jin Ryu last winter has further accelerated that timeline. The time to win is now, with an urgency that wasn’t necessarily there prior to laying out almost $200-million this winter. I became a baseball fan and Blue Jays fan in the summer of 1997, and...

Blue Jays Should Consider a Reunion with David Price

We’re just a few weeks away from the start of Spring Training and the Toronto Blue Jays remain a starting pitcher or two short of a full roster.

Jays 2021 ZiPS Over/Under Poll: George Springer

Jays 2021 ZiPS Over/Under Poll: George Springer

Gerry Angus-USA TODAY Sports The 2021 Blue Jays ZiPS projections are out. Over the next few weeks, we’ll put up a series of over/under polls, using the batter’s OPS and the pitcher’s ERA as predicted by ZiPS. Today we’ll look at George Springer. ZiPS figures Springer to have an OPS of .845 (this is as an Astro, I don know if there would be a change with him moving to Toronto, but then I doubt they have park factors for Dunedin). They also have him hitting 28 home runs, scoring 96, driving in 90, suggesting he’d be batting at the top of the order. In 2020 he...

Blue Jays recent signing of Marcus Semien warrants a trade

The Blue Jays recent signings of Marcus Semien and George Springer give the Blue Jays a positional surplus in both the outfield and infield. As it currently stands, the Blue Jays roster has four outfielders who are all capable starters and quite the log-jammed infield in Bo Bichette, Vladimir Guerrero Jr, Cavan Biggio, Rowdy Tellez, […] Blue Jays recent signing of Marcus Semien warrants a trade - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community
