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

A quick look at how the Blue Jays batters have done over the past two weeks.

Ezra Shaw

It really hasn't been a fun couple of weeks. We are 4 and 8 over the last 12 games.

The offense has been awful. We've averaged 3.25 runs per game over the 12. The only upside is that Buck and Pat has stopped talking about Kevin Seitzer full time.



Dioner Navarro

Dioner played in 11 of the 12 games, starting 10 of them. He hit ..211/.250/.395 with 1 double, 2 homers, 4 RBI, 2 walks and 8 strikeouts. Why can't we find a catcher that will take more than one walk a week. He has been a bit of a disappointment.


Edwin Encarnacion

Edwin started 11 of the games before going on the DL. Hit .316/.455/.543, with 2 doubles, 2 home runs, 7 RBI, 9 walks and 5 strikeouts. I'm so sad.


Juan Francisco

Juan played in all 12 games, starting 8. He hit .160/.222/.280 with 4 doubles, 1 home runs, 2 RBI, 1 caught stealing, 2 walks and 12 strikeouts. The slash line is surprisingly close to what Ryan Goins was at when he was sent down. Course, Francisco makes up for it with his glove. No? Why don't we try Dan Johnson for a bit?


Jose Reyes

You know, over the past two weeks his numbers have been pretty good .309/.321/473 with 4 doubles, 1 triple, 1 home run, 3 RBI, 2 steals, 1 walk and 7 strikeouts. I'd like more than one walk but, over the two week period, he's been pretty good. His defense hasn't been great, Fangraphs has him at a -5.2 UZR/150, which feels about right. He's made some errors but his .962 fielding average isn't much worse than the league .972 average.


Darin Mastroianni

Played in 6 games, starting 3. Hit .214/.214/.429, with 1 home run. 2 RBI, no walks, 1 strikeout. And a bad bunt. He's had a rough time of it.


Melky Cabrera

Melky started all 12 games, starting 11. Hit .261/.320/.348, 2 doubles, 1 triple, 5 RBI, 4 walks, 2 strikeouts. His batting average has been within 5 points of .300 since June 18th.


Colby Rasmus

Played in 11 games, starting 9. He his .097/.200/.290, with 2 home runs, 4 RBI, 4 hits and 13 strikeouts. Yeah, it hasn't been good. I'm hoping he'll get his timing down sometime good.


Jose Bautista

Jose played in 7 games, starting 6. He hit .200/.231/.480, with 1 double, 2 home runs, 2 RBI, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts. I don't know if it wouldn't have been better to have put him on the DL, when he was first hurt. I'm hoping he'll get his swing back quick.


Adam Lind

Another of the walking wounded. He played in all 12 games, starting 7. He hit .258/.281/.355, 3 doubles, 4 RBI, 1 walk and 8 strikeouts. Like nearly everyone else on the team, limping and not hitting.


Josh Thole

Played in 4 games, starting 3. Hit .222/.222/.222, 2 singles in 9 at bats. Pretty tough to grade him on 9 at bats...but we do anyway.


Steve Tolleson

Steve played in 10 of the games, starting 4. Hit .313/.421/.625, 2 doubles, 1 home run, 1 RBI, 1 steal, 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. He hits much better when he can see.


Munenori Kawasaki

Started all 12 games and he's been great. .333/.415/.361 with 1 double, 1 RBI, 4 walks and 8 strikeouts.  He's still my favorite replacement level player ever, but I wouldn't mind if he were to do better than replacement.


Anthony Gose

Played in 9 and started 5 of the games, then was sent to Buffalo. He hit .150/.190/.200, with 1 double, 1 RBI, 1 steal, 1 walk and 4 strikeouts.


Brad Glenn

Played in 6 games, starting 5, 16 plate appearances, 1 hit, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts. .067/.125/.067. And he's been DFAed.
