Who's Up, Who's Down On the Blue Jays In the Last Two Weeks, June 13 to 26: Batters

J.P. Arencibia - Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports

A look at how our hitters fared the past 2 weeks.

The Jays went 11-2 over the past two week, the pitching was great, but the bats weren't bad either. Well, some of them weren't.....



J.P. Arencibia

Hey, a good couple of weeks from J.P.! Great to see. He hit .306/.359/.611, with 3 home runs, 6 RBI, 2 walks, 8 strikeouts, 1 hit by pitch and 1 caught stealing. This is the J.P. I like.


Edwin Encarnacion

Edwin played in all 13 games, he hit 298/.377/.681, with 6 doubles, 4 home runs, 11 RBI, 5 walks, 5 strikeouts. He has been very consistent of late.


Maicer Izturis

Maicer played in 12 of the 13 games, and he was pretty good. He hit .289/.320/.511 with 4 doubles, 2 home runs, 7 RBI, 2 walks and 6 strikeouts. And his defense has looked really good too. I'm still not a fan, but if he can keep this up, I'll stop constant complaining about him.


Munenori Kawasaki

And he's gone. But he went out on a high note. He played in 11 of 13 games. .261/.345/.565, 2 triples, 1 home run (as hard as it was to believe), 3 RBI, 4 walks, 3 k and 3 sac bunts. He'll be missed.


Brett Lawrie

Hurt. But starting rehab.


Melky Cabrera
Melky played in all 13 games, I don't know why we don't give him the odd day off. He hit .255/.308/.277. That's about as empty a .255 as you can get. 6 RBI, 4 walks, and 6 strikeouts. He needs a break.


Colby Ramus

Colby played in 12 of 13 games. 179/.319/.538, he had 7 hits, but 6 of them were extra base hits, 4 homers, 2 doubles, 7 RBI, 8 walks, 18 strikeouts in 39 at bats. Really he did about as well as a player hitting .179 could.


Jose Bautista

He played in every game, I kind of think he could do with a day off too. Hit. 142/.222/.245 with 2 doubles, 1 home run, 5 walks and 9 strikeouts.


Adam Lind

Adam played in all 13 games too. It looks like is hot streak is cooling off. .254/.269/.549, with 5 home runs (no other extra base hits), 13 RBI, 1 walk, 12 strikeouts. Half hearted down arrow, as the 5 home runs is great but, for him, it's been a down couple of weeks.


Rajai Davis

He played in all 13 games, but sometimes just as a pinch-runner. He hit .250/.273/.250, with no extra base hits, 3 RBI, 0 walks, 4 k and 3 stolen bases. I like his defense is much better than Melky's.


Emilio Bonifacio

He played in 11 of the games. .235/..235/.324 with 3 doubles, 2 RBI, 0 walks, 5 strikeouts, 4 steals, 1 caught. He's been just terrible. I'm tired of waiting for him to start playing. His defense has been pretty good.


Jose Reyes

He gets an up arrow for being back. Yay. Next one has to be earned.


Mark DeRosa

2 hits in 14 at bats. I guess the good part is that he took 4 walks. He's been better at 2B than I thought he would be, but that's not saying much.


Josh Thole

1 hit, a double, in 11 at bats. Small sample size and all, but he's not been any better than Blanco. Looks good behind the plate.
