At 24-18 and in possession of an American League playoff berth, Toronto was one of the game’s surprises this year. Tellez, 25, was one of the reasons the Blue Jays hit such a quality record and scored the ninth most majors points (210). Tellez slashed an excellent .283 / .347 / .540 with eight home runs in 127 home plate appearances in 2020. Of course, with so little time in the regular season, it’s unclear if Tellez will be able to come back to them. next weeks. For the moment, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Travis Shaw will take the lion’s share of playing time at first base.
Unfortunately for the Blue Jays, this is the second major injury to their attack this week. They had previously lost the outfielder Teoscar Hernandez, who has been an elite hitter this season, to a left oblique strain. Nonetheless, the Jays will go for a sweep against the division rivals Yankees on Wednesday.
