Yankees’ early dominance of Blue Jays thanks to Randal Grichuk trade

Remember when the Yankees frustratingly groveled at the Blue Jays’ collective knee, as Toronto turned Yankee Stadium into their personal playground? It happened more often than not over the past few seasons, but was most glaring at the tail end of 2021, when the Jays vaulted themselves back towards contention with a four-game sweep in the Bronx in mid-September, running roughshod over the sleepy Yankees.

Randal Grichuk has been a different hitter so far

When the Rockies traded Raimel Tapia for Randal Grichuk before the season started, one of the reasons speculated by some as to why Colorado would be interested was Grichuk’s batted ball profile as a hitter. For his entire career up to 2022, the righty-hitting outfielder’s plan at the plate could be described in three words: hack, lift, pull. From his first full season in 2015 through 2021, Grichuk was a roughly league-average hitter, with his .245/.293/.475 line generating a 102 wRC+ (2% better than average), and he was almost a metronome in terms of this hitting style. Here’s what, up until this season, the Randal Grichuk (trademark) approach was all about:

Former Blue Jays OF Randal Grichuk and his start to the 2022 season

Earlier this season, the Toronto Blue Jays traded outfielder Randal Grichuk to the Colorado Rockies in exchange for outfielder Raimel Tapia and prospect Adrian Pinto, with the Jays also sending over some cash due to Grichuk’s contract. The trade made sense for both sides, in that the Jays were getting rid of the rest of Grichuk’s contract and acquired a solid bench player in Tapia while the Rockies gained an outfielder who can cover multiple positions and was looking for some more playing time.
