  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Clubs solo shot

    Chapman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Twins.

    Chapman began the Blue Jays' comeback push with his fifth-inning blast. While he ended July hot, the third baseman had gone 0-for-11 to begin August before snapping the skid Friday. He's up to 21 homers, 58 RBI, 57 runs scored, a stolen base, 18 doubles and a .241/.320/.473 slash line through 100 games.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Power surge continues

    Chapman went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Tigers.

    The third baseman gave the Blue Jays an early lead by taking Bryan Garcia deep in the second inning, but the offense quickly ran out of steam. Chapman's gone yard three times in the last two days to extend his hitting streak to eight games, but he's been locked in for longer than that at the plate -- over his last 18 contests, he's slashing a sizzling .385/.467/.815 with eight homers and 18 RBI.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Homers twice in win

    Chapman went 2-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI and a walk in Thursday's 5-3 win against the Tigers.

    Chapman gave Toronto its first lead with a two-run shot to left field in the fourth inning, and he tacked on a solo shot in the sixth. The third baseman extended his hitting streak to seven games with the pair of long balls, and he's hitting a robust .520 (13-for-25) with three homers, nine RBI and nine runs over that stretch. Chapman is still batting just .245 on the season, but he's posted a .320 mark through 22 games in July.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Drives in four in rout

    Chapman went 3-for-6 with a two-run home run, two additional runs and four total RBI in Friday's 28-5 win over the Red Sox.

    The four RBI and three runs established new season-high marks for Chapman, whose achievements might have drawn more attention had the rest of the Toronto lineup not gone off as well. Toronto scored 25 of its franchise-record 28 runs in the first five innings alone, with the Nos. 6 through 9 hitters -- Lourdes Gurriel, Chapman, Santiago Espinal and Danny Jansen -- crossing home 14 times on the night.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Clubs 15th homer

    Chapman went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run in Friday's 8-1 win over the Royals.

    The third baseman took Carlos Hernandez deep in the fifth inning to blow open what had been a 4-1 game. Chapman has gone yard in back-to-back games and four of his last nine, giving him 15 homers on the season. He's batting .333 (11-for-33) over that nine-game stretch in what could be a sign of things to come -- his .257 xBA and .515 xSLG are well above his actual .226 and .428 marks.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Belts 14th homer

    Chapman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Royals.

    He supplied Toronto's only offense on the night by taking Angel Zerpa deep in the fifth inning. Chapman has gone yard three times in the last eight games, giving him 14 homers on the year, but his .218/.295/.413 slash line through 84 contests continues to limit his fantasy utility.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Two hits including homer

    Chapman went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Wednesday's victory over the Athletics.

The homer was his 13th of the season and he has now gone deep in back-to-back games. Chapman came into Tuesday's contest in the midst of an 0-for-16 stretch from the plate, but he went 5-for-7 with two homers and three RBI in the final two games of the series to snap out of the cold spell.

  • 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.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Homers in consecutive games

    Chapman went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesdays' 7-6 extra-inning win over the Orioles.

    Chapman went deep in the third inning off Orioles starter Bruce Zimmermann. This was Chapman's second homer in as many games since he missed three contests due to wrist soreness. 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. His OPS hadn't been over .700 since May 4.
