Teoscar Hernández News
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez was mashing on Sunday, getting three hits in four at-bats, two of which were home runs. He ended the game with a pair of runs and three RBI. Hernandez has gone deep four times in his last seven games. The 29-year-old has taken a bit of a step back after a spectacular 2021 season, slashing .267/.316/.495 with 25 HRs, six steals, 70 runs, and 77 RBI. With three more games left, fantasy managers should continue to start Hernandez to help in every category, besides maybe stolen bases.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez was placed on the restricted list Saturday. He was placed on the paternity list Wednesday but was shifted to the restricted list to receive an extra day off. The 29-year-old will be eligible to come off the restricted list on Sunday. He is slashing .263/.315/.476 with 20 home runs, 64 RBI, 54 runs, and six stolen bases over 445 plate appearances in 2022. He could return for the series finale against the Rangers and had collected a hit in seven of his last eight games before landing on the paternity list. Fantasy managers should continue to roll with Hernandez once the Blue Jays outfielder is activated.
The Toronto Blue Jays placed outfielder Teoscar Hernandez on the paternity list on Wednesday. In corresponding moves, the team recalled right-hander Zach Pop and catcher Gabriel Moreno from Triple-A Buffalo and optioned right-hander Mitch White to Buffalo in a corresponding move. Fantasy managers will now be without Hernandez for the next one to three games, so plan accordingly. Raimel Tapia is getting the start in right field and is hitting sixth on Wednesday against Baltimore Orioles right-hander Tyler Wells. Tapia could start in every game that Hernandez is out, but he's gone just 2-for-22 (.091) with no homers, one RBI, two runs scored and six strikeouts in seven games over the last two weeks.
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.
