Who is Up and Who is Down on the Blue Jays: July 1 to 14

I skipped this last week, because I knew we had the All-Star break so figured we'd do two weeks in one (ok really I forgot about it last week, but it all works). Over the past 2 weeks we are 6-5. Our pitchers have a 4.72 ERA and our batters have a .305/.349/.467 line.

Ricky Romero

Ricky has had an eventful couple of weeks, with getting the last minute invite to the All-Star game. He started two games, both losses for the team. He was 0-1, with a 6.75 ERA plus 2 unearned runs, 10.2 innings, 15 hits, 7 walks and 5 strikeouts. Not his normal great starts.

Carlos Villanueva Also had 2 starts, both of them losses for the team, though he didn't get the decision in either one. He gave us 6 scoreless innings in the game against the Indians and gave up 3 runs in 6.2 against the Phillies. Batters hit .224/.321/.306 against him.

Brett Cecil

Brett pitched 2 good games. A complete game 3-2 loss to the Red Sox  and 6 innings of 1 run ball against the Indians. 1-1 with a 2.57 ERA over the two games. They hit .250/.323/.357 against him. Nice to have him back.

Jo-Jo Reyes

Jo-Jo had 3 starts over the 2 weeks, 1 that went well, 5.2 innings of scoreless ball against Cleveland and two that weren't so good. He went 2-0, with a 5.82 ERA. I kind of figure he deserves yesterday's win, even though he didn't pitch well, since he had games during the 'streak' that he did pitch great and still lost. Batters hit .338/.386/.494 against him. Seems unfair to give him a down arrow when he went 2-0 but 2 of the 3 game were very poor.

Brandon Morrow

2 starts, one bad one against Boston, 5 innings, 4 earned, 5 hits, 3 walks, 5 k. and 1 better one against the Indians, 8 innings, 3 hits, 3 earned, 2 walks and 8 k. He gets a win in the Boston game and a no decision in the Cleveland game. Batters hit .178/.269/.311 against him.

Shawn Camp

Camp had 5 appearances in the 2 weeks and all but one went well. But that one....4 hits with out getting an out. That one hurt. But then, 3 of the 4 hits were ground balls and that is what Camp is paid to do, get ground balls. In all batters hit .353/.353/.471 against him.

 Octavio Dotel

Dotel pitched in 4 games, faced 13 batters and gave up 1 hit, a double, no walks and 3 strikeouts. 

Arrow_down_3

Jason Frasor

Frasor pitched in 5 games. One was very bad, 3 earned against the Red Sox. He had a blown save in another, giving up a run against the Phillies. The other 3 games went better. In all batters hit .375/.368/.750 against him, with 2 doubles and 2 triples. Not so good.

Casey Janssen

Should be back soon.  

Arrow_down_3

Jon Rauch

Pitched in 5 games, gave up 1 earned run in each of three of them. he had a hold and a blown save win.  Batters hit .368/.429/.474 against him. 

Arrow_up_3 

Marc Rzepczynski

Marc got into 3 games, 3.1 innings, allowed just 1 hit, a double, no runs, walked 2 and struck out 1. A .100/.250/.200 line. Pretty good.

Frank Francisco

Sigh.... pitched 2.1 innings, gave up 5 earned runs. A batting line of .500/.563/.714. And yet he did get 1 save. 

Arrow_down_3

Luis Perez

Pitched in 6 games, Farrell really seems to like him. He had 2 losses, 1 the spectacularly bad pitch to Travis Hafner and had 2 holds. He gave up hits in 5 of the 6 games. The batting line against him .333/.375/.533. He gave up 2 home runs.

Jayson Nix Gone like a fifth of gin gone gone away

Arrow_down_3

J.P. Arencibia 

He played in 9 of the 11 games, hitting .182/.289/.212, with 4 RBI. He is on a 4 game hitting streak and is hitting .353 on the little streak so I'm hoping that his thumb is feeling better and he'll have a good second half. 

Arrow_down_3 

Adam Lind

Played in all 11 games, hitting .277/.320/.298. No power at all, just 1 double. 3 RBI. He is allowed an off week or two. 

Arrow_down_3 

Aaron Hill

Started 9 of the 11 games, got into the 2 others. Hit .227/.277/.292. Only 1 extra base hit, the home run. 5 RBI.

Arrow_up_3  

Yunel Escobar

Played in 7 of the 11 games. Hit .333/.438/.407, 3 RBI, 5 runs. Hard not to like the guy.

Arrow_up_3 

Edwin Encarnacion

Started 10 of the 11 games. hit .326/.341/.442. Just 1 home run, 7 RBI. 1 walk and 10 strikeouts. A good couple of weeks but I'd like to see him take a few more walks. And strikeout less, of course. But if you hit .326 and drive in a run a game, I'll forgive somethings. 

Arrow_down_3 

Corey Patterson

Started 3 games, got into 5 others. .250/.308/.333, 2 RBI and a bad caught stealing.

Rajai Davis

Started all 11 games. Hit .279/.279/.419, 4 doubles, a triple, 8 (!) RBI. 6 stolen bases, caught 1 time. 8 runs scored too. Hard to believe that, with that line, he scored 7 runs and drove in 8 in 11 games.  I'd like him to take a walk. He is great when he gets on base. By his standards, so far this season, a good week. But I have a hard time giving an up arrow to someone whose OBP is under .300. It is a step forward though.

Jose Bautista

Please don't be hurt bad. Please. Hit .400/.468/.975 with 7 home runs, 13 RBI, 13 runs and 6 walks in 11 games. Please be ok.

Juan Rivera

Gone like my last paycheck gone gone away.

Arrow_up_3

John McDonald

Started 5 games, appeared in 2 more. .364/.364/.364 line. 3 RBI. 

Arrow_up_3
 

Travis Snider

Glad to see him back. Hit .400/.417/.686 in 8 games. Stole a base. 1 HR, 7 doubles. 9 runs scored, 10 driven in. Could get rid of the cheesy mustachio. But, if he hits like this, he can do whatever he likes.

Jose Molina

Got into 2 games. 7 at bats, 2 hits, both doubles, no walks. 1 RBI. 

Arrow_up_3 

Eric Thames

Started 10 of the games, got into the other one. Hit .356/.396/.622, 3 doubles, 3 home runs, 9 RBI. Doesn't have a stolen base for us yet, doesn't he look like someone that could steal one?
