Teoscar Hernández News
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez has been struggling at the plate since his activation from the injured list on May 7. Over nine games this month, he's slashing .111/.111/.194 with 13 strikeouts, no walks and only one extra-base hit, a home run. He's gone 0-for-12 across his last three games. The 29-year-old likely just needs some more time to settle in this year. He's only recorded two barrels across 36 batted ball events, but his 92.9 mph average exit velocity is encouraging as it's a slight increase from last year's average (91.8 mph).
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday for the team's doubleheader against the Guardians. He had been dealing with a left oblique strain for the past three weeks. Hernandez played in one of the games Saturday, going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts, but went 1-for-4 with a single, two RBI, and two strikeouts in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Guardians. The 29-year-old was a solid fantasy contributor in power and speed in 2021, slashing .296/.346/.524 with 32 home runs, 116 RBI, and 12 stolen bases. He should continue to be a higher-end fantasy option this season if he can stay healthy.
Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez (oblique) will not be activated from the injured list prior to Thursday's game against the Cleveland Guardians. He will be playing another rehab game at Single-A Dunedin on Thursday. The expectation is still that he will return to the team during its current series against the Guardians, but we'll have to wait at least another day for him to arrive. Blue Jays writer Arden Zwelling notes that Hernandez already has a locker set up for him in the visitor's clubhouse at Cleveland's Progressive Field.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez was one of the standout batters of the 2020 season. His 16 home runs tied for seventh in the majors, he batted a career-high .289 and even chipped in six steals over 50 games. Hernandez had flashed power before, clubbing 22 and 26 homers the previous two seasons, but it usually came with a lowly batting average in the .230s. Hernandez clicked on all cylinders from the start, finishing with an xBA, xSLG, Hard Hit%, and Barrel% that were all above the 90th percentile. That's nothing unusual for Hernandez, who has posted superb barrel rates for the past four seasons. Now that he is hitting in the heart of a dangerous young Jays lineup, Hernandez is a five-category contributor who can be counted on as a strong second outfielder in fantasy leagues. Of course, his hard-hitting ways also come with a high strikeout rate that is consistently above 30%, making him slightly less valuable in points leagues. Hernandez should see his name called as one of the top 20 outfielders in fantasy drafts.
