    • Blue Jays' Teoscar Hernandez: Keeps raking Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hernandez went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 10-7 loss to the Red Sox. His ninth-inning shot off Brandon Workman was too little too late for the Jays, but it did give Hernandez eight homers in 23 games since coming to Toronto -- with six of those blasts coming in the last six games. The 24-year-old's big finish to 2017 will put him in the driver's seat when it comes to winning a starting spot next spring.

    • Hernandez is emerging as the leading candidate to replace free agent Jose Bautista in Toronto's 2018 starting outfield, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports. All signs point to Bautista not returning next season, which leaves at least one starting outfield spot up for grabs next year. Hernandez has been impressive -- hitting .274 with a .952 OPS and seven home runs -- in 22 games this season, but his high strikeout rate (33.7 percent) continues to be a sore spot. Manager John Gibbons has offered glowing reviews of the 24-year-old, but the Jays have money to spend during the offseason if Hernandez struggles learning to stay disciplined at the plate.

    • Hernandez stayed hot Tuesday, going 2-for-5 with a solo homer and a three-run shot against the Red Sox. He's been on a five-game massacre of opposing pitchers, a span in which Hernandez has gone 7-for-21 (.333) with five homers, nine RBI and eight runs. While he was never known as a power hitter coming up through the minors, Hernandez has now ripped 25 long balls across his three stops (Double-A, Triple-A and the majors) this year, and he also has good speed that he hasn't brought to bear with the Jays yet. Use him well down the stretch, and don't sleep on him next season.

    • Blue Jays' Teoscar Hernandez: Homers again Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hernandez went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Saturday against the Yankees. Hernandez blasted his fourth home run of the season to put the Blue Jays on the board in the third inning of a game they'd eventually lose. He's homered in back-to-back contests to bring his slugging percentage to .550, and he could be heating up as we enter the last week of the fantasy season.

    • Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs Friday against the Yankees. Hernandez launched his third bomb of the season to give the Blue Jays a third inning lead they'd never relinquish. Although he owns a .518 slugging percentage, he's struggled at the plate since belting a pair of homers on September 9, and he hasn't been a reliable fantasy producer over the last two weeks.
