Grichuk went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Orioles. Entering the game in the sixth inning after Lourdes Gurriel came out due to a foot contusion, Grichuk supplied the biggest hit of the night when he took Hunter Harvey deep in the seventh. The 29-year-old extended his hitting streak to six games with the blast, and Grichuk is slashing .409/.458/.818 over that stretch with three of his 12 homers on the year.
Grichuk will sit Saturday against the Orioles. The Blue Jays can afford to sit a few of their regulars with their playoff place secured. Grichuk hits the bench after starting 18 straight games, with Jonathan Davis serving as the center fielder.
Grichuk went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 10-5 win over the Orioles. He got the scoring started for the night by taking Jorge Lopez deep in the second inning. Grichuk extended his hitting streak to five games in the process, and on the year he's hitting .271 with 11 homers, 32 RBI and 36 runs through 53 games.
Grichuk went 1-for-4 with a walk, two runs and an RBI in Wednesday's 14-1 win over the Yankees. The Blue Jays' cleanup man turned in one of the more muted box-score lines of the night, as No. 9 hitter Danny Jansen (4-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI) was the star for Toronto. Still, Grichuk should continue to benefit from playing regularly in the heart of a Blue Jays lineup that is beginning to hit its stride as the postseason approaches. Grichuk is slashing only .217/.258/.289 in September, but he hasn't been a total zero for fantasy managers this month with 12 runs, seven RBI and a stolen base in 22 games.
Grichuk went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI single in Monday's 11-5 win over the Yankees. Grichuk's single in the third inning drove in Bo Bichette to extend Toronto's lead to 3-1. The center fielder later took Nick Nelson deep for his 10th homer of the season. The 29-year-old has 30 RBI and 31 runs scored while hitting .263/.303/.464 on the campaign.
