Last year I did this little chart every two weeks to give us a quick idea of who has been hot and who hasn't. I used a two week period, so that players would have enough numbers to show something, not that sample sizes that small mean much.
We had 13 games over the last 2 weeks and the Jays were 6-7. We allowed 61 runs (4.7/game) and 56 (4.3/game).
|Ricky has had 2 starts, over the past 2 weeks, both wins. He went 14 innings, allowing 5 runs off 13 hits and 5 walks, with 9 strikeouts. Can't complain much about him.|
|Brandon Morrow||He had 2 starts, we won one and lost one. The loss was a really bad game, he gave up 3 home runs and 6 earned in 6 innings, but the win was pretty good, only 1 earned in 6.2, off a solo homer. He hasn't been giving up as many flies but when he does, they seem to go over the walls. Just 5 strikeouts in the 2 games.|
|He had 3 starts and we lost all three, two of them Henderson got the L. We can't seem to score for him. two of the three games, he was good, one was bad. He had a 4.87 in the 3 games.|
Kyle has had 3 starts in the 2 weeks, the team is 2-1 in those starts. He gave up 1, 2 ,2 earned runs in the starts.The middle start wasn't good, he gave out 6 walks in 5.1 innings, but only the 2 earned and we won the game. The down side is that he gave up 4 home runs, in the 18.2 innings. He hasn't been great but he hasn't been bad either. 2.41 ERA earns him an up arrow.
|The first 2 starts of his career are in the books, he is 1-0, and he's really only had the 1 bad inning, but that one was really bad. Last night's start was better than his first one. The 6.10 ERA doesn't look great but, other than the one inning, he hasn't looked over matched in the majors. Let's give him a mulligan.|
|He's pitched 7 innings, in 5 games, over the past 2 weeks and didn't give up a run, he hasn't given up a run yet this year. He was saved last night by Casey Janssen. In his 7 innings, he's only allowed 3 hits, 1 walk and 10 strikeouts. Small sample size and all, but he's been great.|
|He's pitched in 3 games, for a total of 3 innings and has given up 5 hits, 2 earned, 5 hits, a homer. It's not been pretty.|
|Pitched in 5 games, 5 innings, 6 hits, 3 earned and yet he has 2 saves and 2 holds, as well as a loss. He has given up a .316/.409/.526 line, not the numbers you would want from your closer.|
|He's been in 4 games and has given up a solo home run in 3 of them. So I guess the down arrow is no surprise. In each of the last two seasons he gave up 2 home runs. In 7 appearances this year he has given up 3. I love you Casey, but keep the ball in the park.|
|He's pitched in 4 games and gave up runs in 3 of them. 4 innings, 5 earned runs, 5 hits, 2 walks, 7 strikeouts. Batters have hit .294/.368/.471 against him. But at least the innings last a long time when he is throwing.|
|2 games. He gave up 6 runs, 5 earned, in his inning on April 18 against the Rays. Last Saturday he pitched 2 scoreless innings.|
|He pitched in 2 games in this two week period before going on the DL. One scoreless and one where he gave up a run but also had a save.|
|Evan Crawford||Three games into his major league career and he hasn't given up a run yet. 3 innings, 2 hits, 3 walks (1 intentional) and 2 k. I think getting called up from Double-A is enough to get him an up arrow.|
J.P. Played 11 of the 13 games in the past 2 weeks, hitting .265/.306/.353. He has been hitting better than he was at the start of the season. Just 1 walk over two weeks and 3 extra base hits, all doubles.
|In the last two weeks Adam has hit .200/..311/.350, with 1 home run, 3 doubles, 4 RBI, 5 walks. 5 k. It has been pretty sad. He's been good with the glove, I'd rather he hit. He deserves some points for the triple play.|
|He hasn't had the best two weeks, he hit .195/.327/.439, with 3 homers, 1 double, 4 RBI, 8 walks and 15 strikeouts. He started out the season great, but has slowed some since.|
|Hitting .236/.283/309, 1 double, 1 home run, 4 walks, 5 strikeouts. He has made a couple of errors, in the past 2 games as well. He hasn't looked good, so far, but it is early yet.|
|Edwin has been on of the very few Jays that have been hitting anywhere close to decently, in the early going. Over the past two weeks he's .288/.333/..538. He's had 4 doubles, 3 home runs and 7 RBI in the 13 games. It did make an error on his first chance at 3rd, but considering he's about the only guy hitting at all, I'd let it slide.|
|Colby's turned it on, over the last couple of weeks. .282/.340/.522, 2 doubles, 3 homers, a stolen base, 4 walks, 11 strikeouts and 7 RBI. And great defense in CF. If he keeps those numbers up for the season, we'll be very happy. And he might smile the odd time too. He's been hitting lefties well too. I'd like Farrell to let him start against them.|
|Eric started very slow but has been hitting much better lately. Over the 2 weeks he's hit .333/..361/.485, 2 doubles, a homer, 1 walk, 1 caught stealing, 2 RBI. His defence has been bad, but if he can OPS over .800, I can live with it.|
|Another that hasn't had a good start to the season. He's hitting .205/.368/..364, 2 home runs, 7 RBI, 1 steal, 11 walks. He gets on base so well that, even when he is slumping, he's valuable.|
|Brett played in all 13 games, 1 as DH. His batting average is good, .314, but that's mostly because he's beating out a lot of infield singles, it would be nicer if he was driving the ball, but getting on base is good. He has a .364 on base and .471 slugging average. 2 homers, a triple. His defense has been far better than I thought it would be.|
|1 single in 9 at bats with a walk. He likely won't play much more than that, or hit much better than that.|
Ben got into 5 games, had 3 hits, in 9 at bats, 1 double, 1 walk, 1 caught stealing. The batting line looks good .333/.400/.444. Let's give him an up arrow.
|Rajai got into 10 of 13 games. He can be pretty useful off the bench, considering we really need a defensive replacement in LF whenever we are ahead and he can pinch run. But he's only had 3 hits in 17 at bats and a .176/.250/.222 line, 1 steal, 2 caught stealing.|
|Played in 4 games, 9 at bats, 3 hits, 1 double, 1 homer, 2 RBI, 2 walks. That's about the amount he'll playing most fortnights, though, if he can hit like this, it wouldn't be bad if he plays more.|
