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.

Jays 2021 ZiPS Over/Under Poll: Randal Grichuk

Jays 2021 ZiPS Over/Under Poll: Randal Grichuk
