Who's Up, Who's Down On the Blue Jays In the Last Two Weeks, July 1 to 14: Batters

USA TODAY Sports

A quick look at how our batters have fared in the over the last two weeks.

Our batters hit .262/.332/.398 over the past two weeks, much like they have for most of the season, with a little less power than their norm for the season. .

Batters


Arrow_up_3

J.P. Arencibia

He played in 11 games, 9 starts of 13. Really, he's been pretty good, .273/.351/.364, with 1 home run, 6 RBI, 4 walks and 11 strikeouts. You do have to like that he called out his critics and then started to play better. He's even thrown out a base stealer or two. the 4 walks in 2 weeks is, by his standards, great. One thing about him, he's stayed pretty healthy the last couple years.

Edwin Encarnacion

Edwin played in 10 of the 13 games, first games he's missed this season. He's been incredibly consistent in a season when everyone's been inconsistent. This past couple of weeks hasn't been his best, .212/.381/.485 with 2 home runs, his first triple of the season, 6 RBI, 9 walks, 4 strikeouts. Could be a down arrow, but I like that he's getting on base, even when he isn't hitting.

Arrow_up_3

Maicer Izturis

Let's just say, off the top, that I don't understand playing him at third with Lawrie at second. He played in 12 of 13 games and hit great, .415/.457/.439, 0 home runs, 7 RBI, 4 walks and 5 strikeouts.

Arrow_down_3

Munenori Kawasaki

Sent down, called up, sent down again. Played in 9 games, didn't hit at all, .120/.185/.120, had just 3 hits, of course one of them was a game winner. Then he made a bad error in the bottom of the inning that almost cost us the game.

Arrow_down_3

Brett Lawrie

He's back. It has only been two games, and he's only had 1 hit. I hate giving a guy a down arrow off two games. It does make me feel a little better that he had a single in his last at bat. He hasn't really had a tough play at second base yet, I really would like to see him turn a tough double play, if we really plan on him continuing to play the position.

Red-cross-icon-1_medium

Melky Cabrera Starting a rehab stint. Might be back after the All-Star break, at worst, a few days later.

Arrow_up_3

Colby Rasmus

Colby played in all those 13 games,. and he's been great, .375/.434/.646, 2 home runs, 10 RBI, 4 walks and 10 strikeouts.

Arrow_down_3

Jose Bautista

Jose played in all 13 games. He wasn't great. He hit .229/.339/.396 with 1 home run, 5 RBI, 1 caught stealing, 8 walks and 10 strikeouts.

Arrow_down_3

Adam Lind

Adam played in 11 of 13, after an amazing May and June, he's allowed a couple a down weeks. Hit hit.200/.217/.333 with 0 home runs, 4 RBI, 1 walk and 12 strikeouts. He seems to be fixing himself, he has a 5 game hitting streak and has hit .333 in that time.

Arrow_down_3

Rajai Davis

He played in 10 of 13 games. It hasn't been a good two weeks for his bat. .189/.268/.324 with 1 home run, 3 RBI, 3 walks, 10 strikeouts. 5 stole bases, caught once. He's been chasing again.

Arrow_up_3

Emilio Bonifacio

He was in 8 of the 13 games, starting 6. It might be his best two weeks with the bat this season, .250/.375/.300, 2 RBI, 3 walks, 3 k. He was also caught stealing twice. Don't run on Matt Wieters. That should be posted in big letters in the visiting locker room at Camden Yards. He did have a huge walk in the game that Kawasaki had the game winning hit. I'm giving him an up arrow, because if he got on base at a .375 rate we'd love him, but it still wasn't a great two weeks.

Arrow_up_3

Jose Reyes

Jose played in all 13 games! He was pretty good, .316/.339/.456 with 2 home runs, 4 RBI, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts. 3 stolen bases and 1 caught. I'm so happy he is back, but I expected we'd win more.

Arrow_up_3


Mark DeRosa

He played in 5 games, hit .250/.286/.500 with 1 home run, 1 triple, 3 RBI, 1 walk and 4 k. Yeah, really, I'm totally happy with him putting up a .500 slugging average.

Arrow_down_3

Josh Thole

Played in 8 games, started 5, I was hoping he'd hit better. .176/.263/.176, 1 RBI, 2 walks and 4 strikeouts.
