Who's Up, Who's Down On the Blue Jays Over the Last Two Weeks: Batters

A quick look at how our hitters have done over the past two weeks.

J. Meric

We went 5-5 over the past two weeks.



J.P. Arencibia

You don't need me to tell you that JP's been awful. The past two weeks he has hit .086/.154/.086, 3 singles in 35 at bats. Surprisingly he has walks as well. 1 RBI, for the self declared RBI guy. 15 strikeouts. He was caught stealing once too. The 3 strikeouts with a runner on 3rd and less than 2 outs, in the fog game, was the last straw for me. I've got nothing good to say about the guy, I'd be using Thole against all RHP for now.


Edwin Encarnacion

He played in all 10 games. He is the one constant, he's played in every game this season. Over the last two weeks he has hit .273/.385/.568 with 4 home runs, 8 RBI, 8 walks, 3 k.


Maicer Izturis

Maicer is never going to be a favorite of mine, but his defense has looked better lately. He played in all 10 games, splitting time between third, short and second, as well as pinch hitting. Hit .235/.297/.235, no extra base hits, 3 walks, 2 k, 1 RBI.


Munenori Kawasaki

He played in 9 of the past 10 games. He's stopped hitting. .148/.281/.185, 0 RBI, 3 walks, 3 k and was hit by pitch twice. Vote Kawaski. This advertisement paid for by the Vote Kawasaki Superpac.


Brett Lawrie



Melky Cabrera
Melky played in all 10 games, started 9. His hot streak has ended. He hit .267/.283/.356 with 1 home runs, 3 RBI, 1 walk, 1 k. I'd like him to stop bunting. He seemed to be running better, for a bit there, now he looks as slow as ever.


Colby Rasmus

Colby played in all 10 games too, starting 9. He has got it going, .317/.364/.537 with 2 home runs and 7 RBI, 3 walks and 12 strikeouts in 41 at bats. Earlier in the season he was striking out about half the time. Keep it up Colby.


Jose Bautista

He was in a terrible slump, then he yelled at an umpire and he's back. In the past 10 days he's hit .200/.245/.400, 3 home runs, 8 RBI, 2 steals, 3 walks, 10 k. The first of the two weeks he had just 2 hits and 26 at bats. Gets a down arrow but he has come out of it.


Adam Lind

He's been fun to watch. He's been playing against lefties lately and doing well against them. In the 10 games he is hitting .447/.460/.660, 4 doubles, 2 home runs, 7 RBI, 2 walks, 10 k.


Rajai Davis

Back from the DL, played in 5 games but just started 1. Hitting .455/.455/.455, 1 RBI, 3 steals, 0 walks, 0 k.


Emilio Bonifacio

He has stopped hitting again, .172/.200/.172, 2 steals, 1 walk, 8 k. He made his first error since April 10th, but his defense has looked pretty good. He has to hit better than this though, and it doesn't seem like he is going to.


Jose Reyes

Rehabbing. Hopefully it won't be long.


Mark DeRosa

With Lawrie hurt, Mark's been getting more playing time,. His bat had been pretty good, .333/.368/.500, 1 home run, 3 RBI, 1 walk, 5 k.


Josh Thole

He's played 3 games, started 2. He has just 1 hit in 8 at bats, with 1 walk.

Others that have played in the last 2 weeks:

  • Anthony Gose had 7 at bats, 3 hits, 1 double, no walks, 2 k before being sent back to Buffalo. He's carried the good hitting back to the minors with him, he has 6 hits in 22 at bats (,273). Maybe the change was good for him?
  • Henry Blanco played one game in the span we are looking at, before being released. He went 1 for 3 with a double and a walk. Pretty much his best game of the season.
  • Andy LaRoche played in 1 game, went 0 for 4 with a strikeout and was DFAed and has cleared waivers, headed back to Buffalo.
