Jays roster move: Rowdy Tellez optioned

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Toronto Blue Jays John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Blue Jays sent Rowdy Tellez to Buffalo after today’s game.

Rowdy is hitting .228/.281/.437 with 14 home runs, 17 walks and 82 strikeouts in 77 games for the Jays this year. He’s fallen off of late, hitting .216/.260/.423 with 5 home runs in his last 28 games.

No word on who will be coming up to take his roster spot. I could hope for Bo Bichette, but I have my doubts. Bo is hitting .308/.345/.519 in July, with 2 home runs.

With my luck we’ll be bringing up another bullpen arm. Or maybe a starter.

Hope to see you back soon Rowdy.


Shi Davidi tells us it is Billy McKinney coming up from the Bisons. Make some sense, he can play first. McKinney is hitting .433/.553 /.700 in 9 July games.
