  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Returns to lineup

    Chapman (wrist) is starting Friday's game against the Yankees.

    Chapman was held out of Thursday's lineup due to a wrist injury and underwent an MRI that revealed some inflammation. However, he'll be able to play through the issue, starting at the hot corner and batting sixth Friday.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Wrist flares up again

    Chapman is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles due to recurring right wrist soreness, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    The wrist issue kept him out for three straight games before he returned to the lineup Tuesday and slugged home runs in consecutive starts. At this stage, manager Charlie Montoyo said the Blue Jays aren't sure on the extent of Chapman's setback, so he should be viewed as day-to-day heading into the team's weekend series with the Yankees. Santiago Espinal will replace Chapman at third base in Thursday's series finale with Baltimore.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Belts eighth homer

    Chapman went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 6-5 loss to the Orioles.

    Making his return from a three-game absence due to a sore wrist, Chapman appeared to be fully healthy when he deposited a Jordan Lyles slider into the left-field seats in the fourth inning for his eighth homer of the year. The third baseman has had an unproductive start to his Blue Jays tenure, but advanced metrics -- including a 92nd percentile AEV and 93rd percentile hard hit rate -- suggest he has been mostly unlucky, while his .324/.410/.559 slash line through nine games in June is a strong sign that luck is beginning to turn.

He's gone 12-for-38 (.316) in 10 games in June, lifting his season numbers up to a .223 batting average, .708 OPS, nine homers, 27 RBI, 30 runs scored and nine doubles through 58 games.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Takes batting practice

    Chapman (wrist) took part in batting practice Monday and is expected to return to the starting lineup Tuesday against Baltimore, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

    Mitchell noted that Chapman looked strong during his session of batting practice, and he also stated that the third baseman will likely be available to pinch hit Monday evening if called upon. Confirmation of Chapman's return to the starting nine should come closer to first pitch Tuesday.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Remains out of lineup

    Chapman (wrist) isn't starting Monday against the Orioles.

    Chapman will be out of the lineup for a third consecutive game due to wrist soreness.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Still out Sunday

    Chapman (wrist) is not in Sunday's lineup against the Tigers.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Battling sore wrist

    Chapman is dealing with wrist soreness, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The injury seemingly explains both why Chapman wasn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers and why he wasn't available to pinch hit with his side trailing in the ninth inning. As long as his diagnosis remains nothing worse than soreness, Chapman probably won't miss too many more games, but it's unclear whether or not he'll return to the lineup for Sunday's series finale.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Knocks seventh home run

    Chapman went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored in Sunday's 8-6 loss to Minnesota.

    Chapman hammered a solo shot in the seventh inning and scored a second run on Santiago Espinal's homer in the ninth. His 415-foot blast ended a 15-game homerless drought; he hit .245 with just four RBI during that span. On the year, Chapman is now slashing .215/.307/.373 with 14 extra-base hits through 52 contests.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Takes seat Friday

    Chapman isn't starting Friday's game against the Twins.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Hitting fifth in series finale

    Chapman will start at third base and bat fifth in Sunday's game against the Angels.

    After going 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run in Saturday's 6-5 win, Chapman will climb from the No. 7 spot in the order to fifth. Chapman's rise up the lineup corresponds with Vladimir Guerrero (wrist) and Teoscar Hernandez (rest day) taking a seat Sunday, so Chapman may still find himself in a bottom-third spot in the order for most games in spite of Saturday's strong day at the plate.

  • 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

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.
