Jose Bautista is one of the  power threats in the line up for Toronto. He has rebounded nicely this season, after injuries cut his 2012 season short. He has a .261/.357/.857 triple-slash in 2013 with 27 HRs and 72 RBIs in 440 at-bats. He has 51 extra-base hits on the season, with 115 hits overall to go along with 220 Total Bases. He fares better against right-handers with a .263 batting average in 350 at-bats against them, while he is just hitting .256 facing southpaws. Bautista is still a threat with runners in scoring position, as indicated by his .301/.410/1.002 triple-slash with 6 HRs and 45 RBIs in this situation. He is still solid with two outs and runners in scoring position with a .306 batting average and 17 RBIs. They need him to stay healthy to contend in 2014.

The Toronto Blue Jays have not had the greatest of seasons with them dead last in the American League East division. They trail the Boston Red Sox by 15 games and the chances of them being a Wild Card team are slim at best.

One of the reasons that this season has been a nightmare for the team that made plenty of noise during the offseason is with their pitching. They have allowed 590 runs this season, and only the Houston Astros have allowed more runs at 633 this season.

J.P. Arencibia Toronto Blue Jays Highlights – Parental Guidance Is Advised

 

Josh Johnson has not the best debut for Toronto. He has a 6.20 ERA in only 81.1 innings pitched with just 16 starts made. He once again has had problems staying healthy. When on the mound, he still looks like a pitcher who is lost on the mound. Johnson has a WHIP of 1.66 to include him giving up 15 HRs.

Thoughts Going Forward:

The Blue Jays took a huge risk and it did not pay off this season. They do have to make some decisions in the off season, and that could determine whether they have success in 2014 or if they repeat what happened in 2013. 

Adam Lind is having a productive season for the Blue Jays. He is one of the players that tends to get overlooked with the club. Lind has a .275/.347/.811 triple-slash with 14 HRs and 41 RBIs in 350 at-bats. He has 38 extra-base hits, with 97 hits overall and has scored 50 runs this season. He does very well facing right-handers with a .288 batting average, but struggles against left-handers with a .227 average against them. He does well with runners in scoring position, as indicated by his .260 average and .875 OPS with 31 RBIs in this situation. He is just as good with two outs and runners in scoring position, with him hitting .275 and having a .895 OPS with 16 RBIs in 40 at-bats.
