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.

Update:

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.
