Player Outlook
A 28th-round pick, Davis Schneider wasn't really on the prospect or fantasy radar coming into the 2023 season. He earned a look with the Blue Jays in August, though, after posting a .969 OPS with 21 home runs over 87 contests with Triple-A Buffalo. The mustachioed infielder hit the ground running with the big club, homering in his first at-bat as part of an absurd 1.315 OPS with eight long balls in his first 25 major-league games. A 2-for-35 finish pulled his numbers down, but Schneider still had an OPS over 1.000 during his first taste of big-league action. A 17.8 percent barrel rate and 14.9 percent walk rate were very encouraging, but a 30.5 percent strikeout rate and 67.8 percent zone contact rate were not. Which numbers are closer to a real representation of what Schneider is? The answer probably lies somewhere in between, and Schneider isn't guaranteed regular playing time as things currently stand.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Moving into regular role

    Schneider will start at second base and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Phillies. Kevin Kiermaier's return from the injured list Saturday was expected to cost Schneider some playing time, but the latter player will end up making his third straight start Wednesday. The previous two starts came in left field, but Schneider will man the keystone in the series finale in Philadelphia while the lefty-hitting Cavan Biggio heads to the bench against right-hander Aaron Nola. Schneider holds a 201-point edge in OPS over Biggio for the season (.822 to .621), so the Blue Jays could be motivated to give Schneider an extended look at second base while he's swinging the hotter bat of the two.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Leaves yard Sunday

    Schneider went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Sunday's loss to the Padres. Schneider went deep off Joe Musgrove in the second inning for this first home run since April 2 and later plated another run in the seventh on a groundout. Sunday's home run was also Schneider's first extra-base hit since April 12, and he's now slashing .227/.292/.477 with three homers, 10 RBI, seven runs and a 3:12 BB:K in 48 plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Drawing start at second base

    Schneider will start at second base and bat fifth in Friday's game against the Yankees. It will be Schneider's first start at the keystone in the early going and just his third start overall. Cavan Biggio is on the bench against a right-hander for the first time. The 25-year-old Schneider has already cranked a pair of home runs in his first nine plate appearances this season.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Claims spot on roster

    Manager John Schneider said Sunday that Schneider has won a spot on the Blue Jays' Opening Day roster, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Davis Schneider has endured a rough spring training with a .171/.255/.341 slash line through 16 Grapefruit League games, but his ability to play three positions (second base, third base and left field) in addition to notching a 1.007 OPS in his first 141 big-league plate appearances late last season likely factored into the Blue Jays' decision to include him on the 26-man active roster. Despite his success in his first taste of the big leagues, Schneider still appears likely to begin the upcoming season as a short-side platoon player while Cavan Biggio, Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Daulton Varsho appear secure as the Blue Jays' projected starters at second base, third base and left field, respectively.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Will focus on 2B and LF

    Schneider was not initially mentioned by Blue Jays manager John Schneider when asked about the team's second base and third base situation, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. The manager listed Cavan Biggio, Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Santiago Espinal as options at those positions, adding that it will be "a cool puzzle to solve." After a reporter followed up in asking about Schneider, the skipper noted that the 25-year-old has been working out in the outfield over the offseason and will focus on playing second base and left field in 2024. This could be an indication that Schneider is not among the favorites to see the lion's share of playing time at second base, although the situation does seem fluid.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Out of lineup Friday

    Schneider isn't starting Friday against the Rays. Schneider is 0-for-26 with 11 strikeouts across his last seven games, so he'll get a day off to regroup Friday. Santiago Espinal will start at second base in Schneider's place and bat ninth.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Takes seat Wednesday

    Schneider is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees. Schneider started the previous 13 games but will receive a day to reset after he posted a .674 OPS and 33.3 percent strikeout rate during that span. Cavan Biggio will man second base while Spencer Horwitz receives a start at first with Vladimir Guerrero serving as the DH.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Crushes eighth homer

    Schneider went 2-for-4 with a double and solo home run in Tuesday's loss to Texas. Schneider smashed a 418-foot moonshot off Aroldis Chapman in the ninth inning that boasted 104.9 mph exit velocity for his eighth homer of the season. The rookie has garnered 15 starts in the Blue Jays' last 16 games amid a torrid stretch dating back to Aug. 26. In 51 at-bats since then, he has hit .373 with nine doubles, five homers, 16 runs and 14 RBI.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Continues to rack up walks

    Schneider went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored Sunday in the Blue Jays' 5-2 win over the Royals. The 24-year-old rookie has only moderately cooled down from his red-hot start to his big-league career with the calendar flipping in September. While starting at second base, third base or designated hitter in eight of the Blue Jays' first nine games of the month, Schneider is slashing .269/.486/.654 with six extra-base hits (one home run, one triple, five doubles), seven runs, five RBI and 10:12 BB:K. He should have a clear path to a near-everyday role while Matt Chapman (finger) is on the injured list, and even once Chapman returns, Schneider may have played well enough to keep getting regular playing time in a super-utility role.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Schneider's big-league career began with a nine-hit weekend in early August, earning him a prominent placement in that Monday's Waiver Wire article. But as suddenly as he appeared, he disappeared for the Blue Jays, getting only sporadic opportunities in the weeks that followed. Well, here we are for Round 2. Thanks to an injury for Matt Chapman, Schneider has started five straight games for the Blue Jays and collected nine more hits, going 9 for 17 (.529) with three homers, three doubles, a stolen base and more walks (four) than strikeouts (two). The exit velocities won't blow anyone away, but he was plenty productive at Triple-A as well, slashing .275/.416/.553 with 21 homers in 87 games. There may be no looking back this time, so if you need help at second or third base, Schneider is deserving of your attention.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: On bench for third straight

    Schneider is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies. Schneider was a popular waiver-wire pickup after he opened his big-league career with nine hits -- including two home runs -- in his first three games, but he's gone 1-for-12 with seven strikeouts over his subsequent four contests and no longer looks to be in store for steady playing time. He'll be on the bench for a third straight game Wednesday.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Possible waiver wire pickups

    It's true that Schneider wasn't a highly regarded prospect prior to his call-up Friday, but it's also true that he was doing plenty of damage at Triple-A, homering 21 times in just 87 games while reaching base at a .416 clip. His exit velocities were nothing special, so this isn't a player who's oozing with raw talent. But he's one who has learned to maximize what he has, as evidenced by his high fly-ball and pull rates at Triple-A. Pulling the ball in the air is the most surefire way to make up for middling exit velocities, and it helps explain why Davis homered twice in his first three major-league games. But his 9-for-13 start might give you a false impression of his batting average potential given the likelihood of fly-ball outs. A Spencer Steer outcome is on the table here, but it depends on Schneider continuing to produce. Having him at second base forces Whit Merrifield to the outfield, which may not be an everyday solution.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Officially promoted to bigs

    Toronto selected Schneider's contract from Triple-A Buffalo on Friday. Schneider doesn't have a clear path toward regular playing time with the Blue Jays, but the 28th-round pick from the 2017 MLB Draft has forced his way to the bigs after registering a .969 OPS with 21 home runs and 21 doubles across 87 games this summer at Triple-A. He'll likely operate as a super-utility option at a variety of positions while offering some pop off the bench.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Getting call-up to Jays

    Schneider will be called up to the Blue Jays on Friday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Schneider was a 28th-round pick in the 2017 MLB Draft, but he has steadily risen through the Jays' minor-league system and had exploded for a .969 OPS with 21 home runs and nine stolen bases through 87 games this season at Triple-A Buffalo. It's not exactly clear how he might fit into Toronto's lineup, but the 24-year-old has played pretty much every position on the diamond since beginning his professional career. Most of his starts with Buffalo have come at either second base or left field.
