Sogard went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Sunday against New York.
Sogard gave his team the lead in the fifth inning with a solo blast over the fence in right field, though the Yankees would ultimately emerge victorious. He's collected a base knock in each of the first three games to kick off the second half of the season, and he's now slashing .296/.365/.488 with 10 homers and 27 RBI over 64 contests this season.
Sogard is not in the lineup Saturday against the Orioles.
Sogard has started six of the last seven games and collected multiple hits in three of those contests. However, he will hit the bench in favor of the hot-hitting Danny Jansen on Saturday.
Sogard is not starting Wednesday against Boston.
Sogard has an OPS of 1.017 over his last 19 games. Justin Smoak will be the designated hitter in his absence.
Sogard is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees.
With a tough southpaw (James Paxton) on the bump for New York and the two sides playing a day game after a night game, the lefty-hitting Sogard will receive a breather. While Sogard sits for the first time since June 14, Cavan Biggio will slot in as the Jays' starting second baseman and leadoff hitter.
Sogard went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in a 6-1 victory against the Red Sox on Sunday.
The 33-year-old went 0-for-4 Saturday, and still, he's 10-for-23 (.435) in the last five games. The mini-hot streak has brought his average above .300 and slugging percentage north of .500 for the season. After hitting .189 with a .574 OPS in May, Sogard is batting .382 with a 1.022 OPS this month. Overall, he's hitting .305 with eight home runs, 22 RBI, 31 runs and five steals in 190 at-bats this season.
Sogard went 3-for-3 with two walks, a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Thursday's win over the Angels.
It was another big day at the top of the order for the veteran infielder. Sogard is now slashing a surprising .303/.371/.503 through 47 games with seven homers, four steals, 20 RBI and 29 runs.
Sogard went 2-for-3 with a triple, double, two walks and three runs Sunday in the Blue Jays' 12-0 win over the Astros.
Sogard isn't quite a regular in the Toronto lineup, but manager Charlie Montoyo has been deploying the veteran as the Jays' leadoff man on the occasions he starts. That's unlikely to change anytime soon, as Sogard now maintains a .386 on-base percentage in June after reaching four times in the blowout win. Sogard hasn't historically offered much power, but he's one of several players who have experienced slugging boosts thanks to the 2019 baseball. His six home runs already represent a career high, and his .847 OPS is 76 points better than his mark in any season in which he's received at least 100 plate appearances.
Sogard went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.
He was the only Jay to have any success against J.A. Happ -- the Yankees southpaw gave up four hits in seven innings, and Sogard had half of them. He's now slashing .364/.389/.545 over the last 10 games, and his five homers on the year is already a new career high.
Sogard went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.
Cavan Biggio's promotion to the majors hasn't cut into Sogard's playing time too much, largely because he remains the Jays' best option in the leadoff spot. The veteran infielder has started seven of the last eight games, slashing .345/.375/.414 over that stretch with a steal, an RBI and four runs, and as long as he keeps finding ways to get on base, he'll remain a regular part of the lineup.
Sogard went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Sunday's 5-1 loss to Colorado.
Sogard went just 14-for-74 (.189 average) last month but has collected three multi-hit games since May 26. In 143 plate appearances this season, the 33-year-old infielder owns a .781 OPS with 11 extra-base knocks.
Sogard went 2-for-6 with a run and a stolen base Wednesday in the Blue Jays' 4-3 loss to the Rays in 11 innings.
Sogard drew his fourth straight start out of the leadoff spot and delivered a useful line, but there's a decent chance he would have been on the bench Tuesday or Wednesday if Cavan Biggio hadn't fallen ill. Now 14 games under .500, the Blue Jays don't have much incentive to hand regular at-bats to Sogard -- a 33-year-old journeyman on an expiring deal -- at the expense of Biggio and top prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Sogard has been a nice source of value in deeper leagues thus far with a .261 average, four home runs and four steals in 134 plate appearances, but his sketchy playing-time outlook limits his rest-of-season fantasy upside.
Sogard will hit the bench in favor of the newly promoted Cavan Biggio for Friday's game against the Padres.
Sogard had moved into a starting role at second base and performed surprisingly well, hitting .265/.357/.459 in 26 games. Despite that success, he remains a 33-year-old with a career 77 wRC+, so he's likely to be relegated to a bench role for now while the Blue Jays see what the 24-year-old Biggio can do.
Sogard went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Thursday in the Blue Jays' 8-2 loss to the Red Sox.
Sogard missed the first two games of the series with Boston due to a sprained thumb before returning to action Wednesday. Fantasy managers may have wished Sogard took some additional time, as he went 0-for-10 while starting the last two days.
