Blue Jays' Teoscar Hernandez: Gets aboard thrice

Hernandez went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Twins. Hernandez extended his hitting streak to seven games, a span in which he's gone 8-for-26 (.308) with three home runs, six RBI and six runs scored. The outfielder is slashing .272/.326/.497 with 16 homers, six steals, 52 RBI and 44 runs scored across 341 plate appearances. He should continue to hit fourth or fifth in the order, which is likely to be a productive spot since Toronto ranks fifth in the majors with 517 runs scored as a team.

Blue Jays: Teoscar Hernandez back in Silver Slugger contention

Most of the Toronto Blue Jays talks lately has been around the Trade Deadline and about who the club had added, as well as who they did not receive. Prior to the deadline chatter, it was also about the emergence of Matt Chapman and before that it was Alek Manoah’s All-Star appearance and his Cy Young caliber start to the season. All of these discussions are worthy to talk about, but one player that has gone near under the radar is two-time defending Silver Slugger winner Teoscar Hernandez.

Blue Jays' Teoscar Hernandez: Homers again Thursday

Hernandez went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday's 9-3 win over the Twins. Hernandez has hit safely in five straight games, going 6-for-19 with three homers, six RBI and five runs scored in that span. The outfielder tied the game at 1-1 in the sixth inning with his blast Thursday. For the season, he's slashing .272/.322/.498 with 16 long balls, 52 RBI, 43 runs scored and five stolen bases through 332 plate appearances. While trade-deadline acquisition Whit Merrifield can play right field, it's expected he sees most of his time at second base, so Hernandez's near-everyday role should be safe.
