Teoscar Hernández News
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez has been placed on the injured list. He was reportedly exposed to a case of COVID-19 while he was away from the team. He is now following league protocols as follow-up testing is being pursued. The Blue Jays made multiple moves on Friday. Outfielder Josh Palacios was called up is starting in right field and batting ninth in the team's matchup against the Los Angeles Angels on Friday. Hopefully Hernandez won't miss too much time. He's gone 6-for-29 with a home run so far this year and has been plagued by strikeout trouble with 14 strikeouts.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez struck out four times during Thursday night's 7-5 loss to the Los Angeles Angels. He went 1-for-5 with both a run scored and a run driven in. Through seven games, he's hitting just .207 with an ugly BB-K of 0-14 in 29 at-bats. This is hardly the start the Jays were hoping for from Hernandez after he had a breakout year in 2020. Last season, the 28-year-old outfielder produced a 143 wRC+ and was trending for his first 30+ home run season but he was limited to just 50 games due to the pandemic. It's too early to worry about Hernandez but the slow start is certainly not helping the Blue Jays who are seeing many of their hitters struggle early in the season.
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez is in the cleanup slot again for the second game of the season. Hernandez went 3-for-4 with a home run on Thursday. He drove in just one run against the Yankees' pitching staff in part because the No. 1-3 hitters went 0-for-14 with seven strikeouts. The 2020 season was a breakout year for Hernandez who produced a 143 wRC+ with 16 home runs in 50 games. Today's matchup is not a great one for the 28-year-old slugger if Yankees starter Corey Kluber is on his game. Hernandez does not hit breaking balls well and the veteran pitcher's breaking ball can be one of the best offerings in the game when it's on. Look for Hernandez is be aggressive early in the count.
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.
