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

A quick look at how our batter have been doing over the past couple of weeks.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

We are 3-9 over the past couple of weeks, not what we would have liked. Our bats have been awful, but then we've seen some good pitchers. As a group we hit .236/.298/.313.



Dioner Navarro He started 11 of the 12 games. Hit .233/.244/.302 with 1 home runs, 5 RBI, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts. He hasn't been good. I'm glad Edwin and Adam are back, so Dioner isn't hitting clean up any more.


Steve Tolleson

Steve missed some time on the Paternity List (and likely has missed some sleep too). He played in 6 games, starting 3. He hit .091/.167/.091 in 12 PA, with 1 walk and 4 strikeouts. I'd give him a break, it's pretty tough to do anything with a new baby around the house.


Ryan Goins

Ryan played in 10 games, starting 9, before being sent back to Buffalo. He hit .120/.120/.120, with 2 RBI, 1 caught stealing, 0 walks and 7 strikeouts. Those sort of numbers will get you sent out.


Jose Reyes

Jose started 11 of the 12 games. With the bat, he's been terrific. He's hit .367/.404/.429 with 3 doubles, 2 RBI, 3 steals. 1 caught, 3 walks and 7 strikeouts. His defense hasn't been as  good, though there have been moments. One of the very few up arrows. .


Danny Valencia

Danny played in 11 games, starting 8. He hit .303/.361/.394 with 3 doubles, 2 RBI, 3 walks and 5 strikeouts. He's getting a chance to play against some RHP, and the way Francisco has played, i'm ok with it.


Melky Cabrera

Melky started all 12 games. He's been very good, hitting .333/.444/.400 with 3 doubles, 4 RBI, 8 walks and 5 strikeouts. some more power would be ok, but I won't complain. He is even taking walks.


Colby Rasmus

Cobly played in all 12 games, starting 11. He hit .244/.320/.378, with 3 doubles, 1 home run, 2 RBI, 5 walks and 16 strikeouts. Compared to most of our guys, that wasn't a terrible couple of weeks.


Jose Bautista Bautista started all 12 games. He hit .298/.370/.489 with 3 doubles, 2 home runs, 9 RBI, 6 walks and 10 strikeouts. It feels like he's been in a slump but if those numbers are a slump we are pretty lucky.


Adam Lind

Just back from the DL, he played 2 games. Had 2 singles in 7 at bats, 1 k.


Munenori Kawasaki

He played in 11 games, starting 9. Hit .206/.270/.235 with 1 double, 0 RBI, 3 walks, 6 k. I like him a lot, but he's gotta hit better than that.


Anthony Gose

Played in 11 games, starting 6. He hit .174/.240/.304 with 1 home run, 1 RBI, 3 steals, 2 walks and 11 strikeouts. I love his glove, but he's gotta hit better.


Juan Francisco

He's played in 10 games, starting 7. He his .065/.121/.097 with 1 double, 0 RBI, 2 walks, 11 strikeouts in 33 PA. He had so many chances to be hero in that long extra inning game. He's been terrible.


Josh Thole

Josh played in 5 games, starting 3. Hit .071/.133/.071 with 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. It is tough to hit when you play so little but then, that's his job. 


Nolan Reimold

He played in 9 games, starting 4. He hit .125/.233/.167, 1 double, 5 RBI, 3 walks and 6 strikeouts. He's was so good when we first got him. Hopefully he'll get it back.
