  • Blue Jays' Santiago Espinal: Sits again Monday

    Espinal is out of the lineup for Monday's game in Baltimore.

    Espinal will sit out for the third time in five games while he continues to work in a timeshare at the keystone with Cavan Biggio, who is batting ninth Monday. The two may continue to split work at the position until George Springer (elbow) is activated from the 10-day injured list, at which point Whit Merrifield -- who is filling in as the Jays' primary center fielder -- will likely move back to second base.

  • Blue Jays' Santiago Espinal: Knocks seventh homer

    Espinal went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Twins.

    Espinal's homer was his first since June 30 and his first extra-base hit since July 7. He picked a bad time to go cold -- he's gone 4-for-24 (.167) in his last nine games and no longer has a regular role in the lineup with the Blue Jays adding Whit Merrifield at the trade deadline. For the season, Espinal has a .265/.316/.383 slash line with seven long balls, 41 RBI, 40 runs scored, five stolen bases and 21 doubles, but he'll likely be limited to a bench role when the Blue Jays are at full health.

  • Blue Jays' Santiago Espinal: Likely headed for reserve role

    Espinal is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Twins.

    Espinal's time as Toronto's primary second baseman has likely come to an end with trade-acquisition Whit Merrifield making his team debut. Merrifield is actually starting in center field Thursday but is expected to see most of his playing time at the keystone. Espinal should compete for utility reps with Cavan Biggio, who is starting at second base Thursday.

    The infielder capped the scoring on the night with a two-run blast off Ryan Yarbrough in the seventh inning, his sixth long ball of the year. Espinal snapped a 21-game homer drought with the performance, but he's been picking up the pace at the plate with four two-hit efforts in the last five games, boosting his slash line back up to .271/.323/.405.
