Who's Up, Who's Down On the Blue Jays: Batters

A look at how the Blue Jays hitters have fared over the last couple of weeks?

Always want to see more of this.
Always want to see more of this.
Brian Blanco

In the 11 games over the past two weeks our bats have started working, as a group they hit .277/.357/.429, and scored 59 runs, a healthy 5.4 runs per game



Dioner Navarro Dioner played in 9 of our first 11 games. His bat has been quite good, he hit .314/.342/.400, with 1 home run, 6 RBI, 2 walks and 3 strikeouts. He's only thrown out 3 of 20 base stealers and he's allowed a couple passed balls of late, but he does seem to get along with his pitchers.


Edwin Encarnacion

Edwin bat was slow to get going, but he has picked it up over the last couple of weeks. He hit .289/.385/.444 with his first home run of the season, 9 RBI, 6 walks and 10 strikeouts.


Ryan Goins

Ryan started all 11 games, which surprises me a bit, I figured Diaz would get some of the starts. .219/.286/.313, with the 1 home run, his only extra base hit, 1 RBI, 3 walks, 4 strikeouts.


Jose Reyes

He's back, he played in 5 games. Hit .208/.208/.375, 1 home runs, 4 RBI, 0 walks, 4 strikeouts. I can't give someone just off the DL a down arrow.


Brett Lawrie

He started all 11 games. It used to be that if a guy was in a deep slump, you'd give him a day off to reset himself, but since we have no bench....Brett hit .209/.271/.488 with 4 home runs and 15 RBI, 3 walks and 9 strikeouts. Hard to complain about 4 home runs and 15 RBI in 11 games. I'd like him not to be all or nothing but we'll take it for now.


Melky Cabrera

Melky's been amazing, .373/.418/.549, 4 doubles, 1 triple, 1 home run, 3 RBI, 2 steals, 4 walks and 9 strikeouts.


Colby Rasmus

Cobly played in 10 of the 11 games. It seems like his bat is coming around, he hit .225/.262/.500 with 3 home runs, 6 RBI, 2 walks, 14 strikeouts. I have a hard time giving someone a down arrow for when he has a .500 slugging average.


Jose Bautista Jose has started all 11 games. Hit .308/.491/.487 with 2 home runs 8 RBI, 14 walks and 10 strikeouts. Pretty much Barry Bonds numbers.


Adam Lind

Adam played in 3 games before hitting the DL. He was hitting great, .556/.667/.556, with 3 walks and 1 k.


Jonathan Diaz

He played in 9 games, starting just 1, hit .167/.286/.167, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts in 15 PA.


Moises Sierra

Played in 7 games, starting 3. He had his first 2 singles of the season. Hit .133/.188/.133, 1 RBI, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts. Not good.


Juan Francisco

He's played in 5 games, he's been great. .313/.421/.438, 1 triple, 1 RBI, 2 walks and 5 strikeouts. I


Josh Thole

Josh played in 5 games, starting 3. He's been a surprise, considering how terrible the was last year, but he hit .538/.571/.615 in his 14 PA. I'm really not against hm playing more. 


Munenori Kawasaki

Came up, played in 3 games, got sent back down. It looks like he gets the Mike McCoy role. He hit .250/.308/.333 in those 3 games. Up, play and down, pretty much the circle of life for Munenori.
