Who's Up, Who's Down On the Blue Jays Over the Last Two Weeks: June 1 to 14

We are seeing more of this from Jose in June. Mandatory Credit: Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

The last two week have, at very least, been very eventful, but we haven't had much for good baseball over that time. We were 4-8 over that period.

Arrow_down_3

Ricky Romero

2 starts, neither went very well. He gave up 5 runs (3 earned) in 7 innings against the White Sox and 4 runs (3 earned) in 4 innings against the Braves. The good news is that he was 1-0 and the team won both, but it wasn't because of Ricky's great pitching. He gave up 14 hits, 3 walks, 2 HR, 5 k in 11 innings. At least he cut down on the walks.

Red-cross-icon-1_medium

Brandon Morrow 2 starts. One was just terrific, complete game shutout, 2 hits, 2 walks. The other was sad, leaving the game after just 6 pitches, and going on the DL with a oblique strain. Recover quick Brandon.

Arrow_down_3

Henderson Alvarez

3 start, he was 0-2 and the team lost all 3 games. He wasn't awful, just not good. He went 6.1, 7.0 and 7.0 innings in the 3 starts. 4.87 ERA over the 2 weeks. Batters hit .296/.313/.543 against him. Only 2 walks, but 5 home runs (3 of them in the start against the Braves). A little offensive support wouldn't have hurt. The term 'innings eater comes to mind.

Arrow_down_3

Kyle Drabek

I had really good seats, behind the plate, for Kyle's start against the Braves. For a change he was around the plate with most of his pitches, but, also unusually, he was hit very hard. And it ended when something went pop. I hope he's ok. His 3 starts resulted in a 0-2 record and 3 losses for the Jays. Batters hit .290/.389/.452 against him with 10 walks in 16 innings.

Arrow_around_3_medium

Drew Hutchison

2 starts, a good one against the Red Sox, going 7 innings and allowing just the one run, on a solo homer and a bad one, allowing 5 earned in 6.1 with 3 homers against Atlanta.

Arrow_down_3

Luis Perez

He got into 5 games, allowed 3 runs in the first one, against the Red Sox, and then 1 run (but 6 hits) in 2.1 against the Nationals. No runs in the other 3 games. Batters hit.423/.464/.500 against him.

Arrow_up_3

Darren Oliver

Pitched in 6 games, gve up a run in one of them. Allowed a .143/.250/.143 line. Must better than the previous 2 weeks.

Arrow_down_3

Francisco Cordero

Sigh. 7 games. .333/.429/.556 line. Just a 3.86 ERA if that means anything to you.

Arrow_up_3

Casey Janssen

He only pitched in 3 games, we didn't have many save situations and, lord knows, we wouldn't want him out there in a tie on he road. Allowed just 2 hits and no walks in his 3 innings. Can you imagine how different John would manager if there wasn't a save rule?

Arrow_up_3

Jason Frasor

Frasor slowed down 5 games, but didn't give up a run. Allowed just 3 hits and 2 walks, with 5 k.

Arrow_around_3_medium

Carlos Villanueva

4 games, 5 innings, 1 earned, 4 hits, 4 walks, 3 k, 1 HR. .211/.375/.474 line.

Red-cross-icon-1_medium

Sergio Santos

Will he ever be back?

Arrow_around_3_medium

Aaron Laffey We've had half a dozen guys go up and down the last couple of weeks, yet again. Laffey pitched in one game against the Nationals and looked pretty good other than the 2 homers he gave up in his 3 innings.

Batters:



Arrow_down_3

J.P. Arencibia

JP had a really good May, so, of course he is having a poor June. Hitting just .143/.225/.143 this month. I'm really not against seeing what d'Arnuad can do.

Arrow_around_3_medium

David Cooper

His hot steak seems to have run out, he is 0 for his last 4 starts. Looks like pitchers have found his weakness. Hopefully he'll turn it around quick. For the total of the last two weeks, he's hit .250/.308/.472, not bad.

Arrow_down_3

Kelly Johnson

June hsn't been good for Kelly, not sure if the hamstring is still bothering him but he is hitting .229/.302/.271, which isn't good enough.

Arrow_down_3

Yunel Escobar

Another to add to the parade of guys not hitting in June. He's got a .227/.306.318 line. No wonder we aren't winning.

Arrow_up_3

Edwin Encarnacion

Edwin missed a few games after taking the pitch in the hand. He's one of the few that has been hitting, .323/.417/.419, though no home runs in the past couple of weeks. Still can't complain too much.

Arrow_up_3

Colby Rasmus

Colby is having a pretty decent June, hitting .294.,333/.529, with 3 homers and 8 RBI. He has only had 1 walk over the past couple of weeks but is making good contact.

Arrow_around_3_medium

Yan Gomes

Gomes had been sent down to Vegas, but never left the city. He's played more than Mike McCoy. 9 at bats, 2 hits, 1 HR, no walks, 2 k. .222/.222/.516.

Arrow_up_3

Jose Bautista

I think Buck can really say that Jose is back now. 7 home runs in 12 games, .293/.434/.854 line, 15 RBI. Back to being really fun to watch.

Arrow_down_3

Brett Lawrie

Brett has moved into the leadoff spot. He's still not driving the ball the way he should be, getting by on infield singles. But he has taken a few walks (5) since moving to the top spot of the order. .265/.345/.347, 1 steal, 3 times caught stealing. The 3 caught stealing pushed me to the down arrow.

Arrow_down_3

Omar Vizquel

1 hit in 10 at bats. He pinch hit for us the other day. I think if you have Omar pinch hitting, at age 45, you have really done something wrong with your roster. I'm wondering if he really has any value for the team.

Red-cross-icon-1_medium

Ben Francisco

Still on the DL. I could have filled this slot with Mike McCoy, but he only had 5 at bats, but then 2 hits. .

Arrow_around_3_medium

Rajai Davis

Rajai played in 11 of the 12 games over the past 2 weeks. Too much playing time, but we don't have anyone else. Hit .242/.324/.394 with 1 homer, 1 triple, 6 steals, caught once. Just 3 runs. Really about as good as you could expect Rajai to do, and it isn't good enough. Get Travis up here.

Arrow_down_3

Jeff Mathis

Played in 4 games, 2 hits, 1 home run, in 12 at bats. Remember all those stories about how he would hit better here than for the Angels? We don't see them any more.
