Rainer Nunez

The 21-yr-old 1st baseman is the most consistent bat on the Blue Jays. In 12 games over the past 15 days, Rainer owns a .311/.347/.444 slash with 3 doubles, a home run, and 6RBI.

Adrian Pinto

This one is a funny one. The skilled infielder went 6-for-32 over his last 10 games for a .188BA. Not very hot. However, Pinto collected 2 doubles, 2 triples, a home run, and drove in 5 runs while walking 6 times and striking out just twice. Pinto owns a .350OBP and a .819OPS during this time.

De Castro went 2-for-4 with a double on June 5th, 1-for-3 with 2 walks and a 2-run home run on June 9th, and 2-for-4 on June 12th; unfortunately, there were plenty of o-fers. In 10 games over the past 15 days, De Castro batted.167 with two doubles, a home run, and two runs batted in.

 

For the season: .191BA, 2 doubles, 0 triple, 2 home runs, 9RBI, 8/22 BB/K, 1/4 SB/CS, and .595OPS

 

Angel Del Rosario

Things haven’t gone his way on his return. In games since his return, the La Romana, D.R., native owns a .143BA with 2 walks, 12 strikeouts, a double, and 3RBI.

Lover of all things Toronto Blue Jays. Blue Jays MiLB fanatic. I strive for average while stumbling onto above average. Rogers isn't cheap. Baseball is a business. Your right, but I'm more right.
