Tellez is not in the lineup Thursday against the White Sox. Tellez will take a seat for the second time in the past three games with southpaw Dallas Keuchel starting for Chicago. Bo Bichette will serve as the designated hitter while Marcus Semien plays shortstop.
Tellez is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox. Tellez has started just once against a lefty all season, so it's no surprise to see him on the bench against Carlos Rodon on Tuesday. Lourdes Gurriel will rest his legs as the designated hitter in his absence.
Tellez isn't starting Saturday's game against the Astros. Tellez had started each of the last three games and went 2-for-10 with a double and a walk. Randal Grichuk will serve as the designated hitter while Jonathan Davis starts in center field.
Tellez (hamstring) is starting at first base and batting fifth Friday against the Rays. The 26-year-old suffered a hamstring strain Sunday and will rejoin the starting nine for Friday's series opener. Tellez is 5-for-25 in nine games since rejoining the big-league club May 7.
Tellez (hamstring) is doing well and will be available off the bench Tuesday against the Red Sox, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Tellez's left hamstring appears to be mostly recovered after it forced him to exit Sunday's game against the Phillies. With just two homers on the season, Tellez's power has yet to make much of an impact, but his overall offensive numbers have been trending upward after a miserable start to 2021.
