    Chapman took Nestor Cortes deep in the bottom of the second inning, giving the Blue Jays a 1-0 lead. The homer was his fifth of the season and he now has 14 RBI. In his first season with the Blue Jays, Chapman has struggled to a .220/.290/.429 slash line over 91 at-bats.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Crushes fourth home run

    Chapman went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in Friday's 11-7 loss to the Astros.

    Chapman singled and scored on a Raimel Tapia double in the second inning. He then knocked his fourth homer of the year off of Phil Maton in the seventh. The slugging third baseman is slashing .231/.286/.436 with eight extra-base hits through 21 games as a Blue Jay.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Mashes third homer

    Chapman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 6-2 win over the Red Sox.

    The third baseman crushed a Nathan Eovaldi offering over the fence in left-center field in the seventh inning. Chapman's .246/.303/.443 slash line through 17 games comes with three homers and 10 RBI, and while on the surface his numbers don't look too different from his last couple years in Oakland, there are signs of improvement. His 25.8 percent strikeout rate would be his best mark since 2019 if he can keep it up.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Three knocks in win

    Chapman went 3-for-4 with an RBI during Thursday's 3-2 win over the Red Sox.

    Chapman hit a two-out double in his first plate appearance during the second inning but was left stranded. After grounding out to third in his second at-bat, Chapman came up with runners on first and second and recorded an RBI after a pop up over first base fell in for a single. The third baseman came on with a runner on again in the eighth, but Lourdes Gurriel was thrown out at third after Chapman hit a single to left field. Through 13 games, Chapman has eight RBI and and three multi-hit games to go along with two homers.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Slugs second homer

    Chapman went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the A's.

    He took Domingo Acevedo deep in the sixth inning, kicking off a Toronto rally from a 5-2 deficit, but Oakland regained the lead in the ninth. Chapman has had a sluggish start to his stint with the Blue Jays, going 6-for-27 (.222) through nine games, but the third baseman does have two homers and six RBI.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Not starting Thursday

    Chapman isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Yankees.

    Chapman started in each of the first six games of the season and hit .190 with a homer, a double, four RBI and two walks. Santiago Espinal will take his place at the hot corner while Cavan Biggio starts at second base Thursday.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Hits first homer for new team

    Chapman went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

    Chapman followed George Springer's first-inning homer with a long ball of his own off Spencer Howard. His elite defense at third base will keep him in the lineup on an everyday basis, but if the first three games are any indication, the strikeouts aren't going anywhere.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Back in action

    Chapman (forearm) will bat fifth and play third base Friday against the Tigers, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    Chapman left Tuesday's game against the Yankees with a left forearm laceration after getting spiked on a play at third base. The cut didn't require stitches, so it's no surprise to see him back in action three days later.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Suffers cut to forearm

    The Blue Jays announced that Chapman was removed from Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees due to a left forearm laceration, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

    Chapman won't require stitches to seal the wound, so he could have a shot at playing in the Blue Jays' next game Wednesday against the Phillies if the laceration doesn't present too much discomfort for him at the plate or in the field. The 28-year-old, who signed a two-year, $25 million deal with the Blue Jays earlier Tuesday to avoid arbitration, suffered the cut when he took a spike to the forearm during a play at third base.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Exits after play at third base

    Chapman exited Tuesday's game against the Yankees with an apparent left hand injury, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    The injury occurred on an attempted steal of third base. Chapman, who agreed to a two-year, $25 million contract with the Blue Jays earlier Tuesday to avoid arbitration, appeared to be bleeding as he walked off the field, indicating that he'd seemingly been spiked in the hand during the play. He was smiling and laughing with the training staff as he exited, so there's hope that he isn't dealing with any long-term injury.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Reaches two-year deal with Jays

    Chapman agreed Tuesday with the Blue Jays on a two-year, $25 million contract extension, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    The deal buys out Chapman's final two years of arbitration and keeps him on track to reach free agency following the 2023 campaign. The Blue Jays will likely wait and see how Chapman fares during his first season in Toronto before potentially revisiting signing him to a longer-term extension next spring.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Launches first spring homer

    Chapman went 1-for-2 with a walk and a two-run home run in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates.

    He crushed a Bryse Wilson offering deep to left field in the third inning for his first homer of the spring. Chapman is coming off a rough final stretch at the plate with Oakland, posting sky-high strikeout rates and feeble batting averages over the last two seasons in the aftermath of a hip injury, but his elite defense at third base will still an asset for the Blue Jays even if he never regains the form that saw him slash .263/.348/.507 over 301 games in 2018-19 for the A's.
