Tellez went 3-for-4 with a double and a two-run homer in a win over the Rays on Saturday. Tellez pulled an inside cutter from Tyler Glasnow into the right-field stands in the bottom of the fourth for his second big fly in his last three games. The 23-year-old posted a .270/.340/.425 slash line with 13 homers and seven stolen bases in 444 plate appearances for Triple-A Buffalo this season, regaining some prospect luster. Justin Smoak has been riding the bench more frequently lately as the rebuilding Jays evaluate Tellez ahead of 2019.
Tellez went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, three RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 9-8 win over the Rays. Tellez got the scoring started with a two-run shot in the second inning before knocking an RBI double to start Toronto's incredible ninth-inning rally. Now with 40 career plate appearances, the rookie left-hander owns an 1.144 OPS with nine RBI.
Tellez went 2-for-4 with a walk and a solo homer in Saturday's loss to the Indians. Tellez went back-to-back with Randal Grichuk in the fifth inning, marking his first major-league homer in what was his fourth game. The Blue Jays seem determined to get the rookie at-bats down the stretch, as he's now started three consecutive games, going 7-for-13 with five doubles and a homer in those appearances.
Tellez went 2-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's win over Cleveland In just three games since being called up from the minors, Tellez has gone an impressive 6-for-10 with six doubles and three RBI. While Justin Smoak and Kendrys Morales still present road blocks between Tellez and regular playing time, the rookie's usage so far suggests the Blue Jays might give him a long look over the final weeks of the season.
Tellez went 3-for-4 with three doubles, an RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Indians. Tellez built off his impressive debut by smacking three more doubles and scoring the first run of his career. In the process, he became the first player since the live-ball era began in 1920 to record an extra-base hit in his first three major league at-bats. With Justin Smoak and Kendrys Morales still ahead of him on the depth chart, however, it remains unclear how much of an impact Tellez can make to close the season.
