Grichuk is not in the lineup Friday against the Tigers, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports. Grichuk started the first seven games of the second half, hitting .222/.300/.407. Billy McKinney starts in right field in his absence.
Grichuk went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Yankees. After missing the last four games before the All-Star break with a sore back, Grichuk has gone 3-for-11 while starting the first three games of the second half, with Sunday's homer being his first since June 28 and his 16th of the year. The 27-year-old sports a disappointing .234/.290/.421 slash line, but he is on pace to top the career-high 25 home runs he slugged in 2018.
Grichuk (back) is starting in right field and batting seventh Friday versus the Yankees. Grichuk was held out of the lineup for the final four contests heading into the All-Star break, but he's ready to go after receiving the extra rest. The 27-year-old has a .308/.366/.492 slash line in his last 16 games and will look to pick up where he left off in the second half of the season.
Grichuk (back) remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles. The Blue Jays don't appear to view Grichuk's back injury as a major concern, but he'll nonetheless head to the bench for a fourth straight game while he manages the issue. With the All-Star break on tap, Grichuk will have some extra time to overcome the injury before likely re-entering the lineup for the first game of the second half July 12 against the Yankees.
Grichuk (back) is not in the lineup Saturday against the Orioles. Grichuk has been out of the lineup since Thursday, nursing a back injury. His absence Saturday makes it possible that he won't see game action until after the All-Star break. Brandon Drury will start in right field in his place.
