Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Officially returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk (back) is starting Tuesday against the Braves, batting sixth.

Grichuk missed the Blue Jays' last four games with a back injury, but the postponement of the team's weekend series against the Phillies gave him extra time to recover. Assuming he doesn't face any setbacks, he should reclaim his role as Toronto's starting center fielder going forward.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Ready for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk (back) is expected to be available for Tuesday's game against the Braves, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The 28-year-old missed the four-game series against the Nationals this week, but he should be good to go when the Blue Jays next take the field. The weekend series against the Phillies was postponed because the Marlins, their previous opponent, had a COVID-19 outbreak among players and staff. Grichuk is 4-for-10 with a run scored, an RBI and a walk in 11 plate appearances through three games.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Sitting in fourth straight
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk (back) is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Nationals.

Grichuk won't end up starting at all during the four-game series with Washington due to the lower-back injury he picked up last weekend. Derek Fisher will receive another turn in right field, while Teoscar Hernandez shifts over to center field in Grichuk's stead.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Out again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk (back) is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Nationals, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

He will miss his third game in a row with lower-back irritation. He is still technically day-to-day. Teoscar Hernandez slides over to center field with Derek Fisher getting the start in right.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Sits again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk (back) remains sidelined Tuesday against Washington.

Grichuk left Sunday's game against the Rays with lower-back irritation and did not take part in Monday's contest. He remains day-to-day. Teoscar Hernandez will again slide to center field, with Cavan Biggio moving out to right and Joe Panik starting at second base.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk (back) is not in the lineup Monday against the Nationals.

Grichuk left Sunday's game against the Rays with lower-back irritation and evidently needs at least one day to rest. Teoscar Hernandez slides to center field in his absence, with Derek Fisher starting in right.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Exits with lower back irritation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk was removed from Sunday's game at Tampa Bay with right SI joint (lower back) irritation, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

The 28-year-old appeared to sustain the injury while attempting to chase down a ground-rule double during the sixth inning. He went 2-for-2 with a run and a walk prior to exiting. Grichuk should be considered day-to-day until the team provides more information on the injury.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Exits with undisclosed injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk left Sunday's game with an undisclosed injury, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

Derek Fisher entered in right field with Teoscar Hernandez moving to center field. Grichuk went 2-for-2 with a run and a walk prior to exiting and now has a hit in each of the Jays' first three games of the season.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Takes BP on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk was seen taking batting practice Friday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

A number of Jays had been held back in Florida and Grichuk was speculated to have been part of this group, but he's apparently now cleared to participate in summer camp. Among the other players seen taking BP for the first time Friday were Cavan Biggio, Derek Fisher, Anthony Alford and Billy McKinney.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Not yet at camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk has not yet joined the Blue Jays for their summer camp in Toronto, Laura Armstrong of The Toronto Star reports.

Twelve members of the organization were held back in Florida due to a positive COVID-19 test, and while none of their names have been released, Grichuk could well be one of them. The 28-year-old posted career highs with 31 homers and 80 RBI last season, but combined them with a career-low .232 batting average and .737 OPS.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Goes yard twice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk went 3-for-5 with two home runs, three runs scored and five RBI in Wednesday's Grapefruit League win over the Orioles.

Windy conditions led to eight total homers between the two clubs, and Grichuk took full advantage. The 28-year-old is slashing .320/.433/.720 with three homers through 30 plate appearances this spring, and he's expected to begin the season as the Jays' starting center fielder.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Top option in center field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk will be given the initial chance this spring to win the starting job in center field, Gregor Chisholm of The Toronto Star reports.

The 28-year-old patrolled center field 62 times in 2019, and while he won't provide Gold Glove-caliber defense, advanced metrics suggest he was at least adequate last year. Offensively, Grichuk's coming off a campaign in which he racked up a career-high 31 homers and 80 RBI, but his .280 OBP highlighted his limitations at the plate. Unless someone like Anthony Alford forces the issue, Grichuk figures to be a consistent member of a Toronto outfield that had a lot of interchangeable parts last season.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: On bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Orioles.

Grichuk has hit .274 with an impressive seven homers in his last 15 games. Billy McKinney starts in right field in his absence.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Cranks three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk went 2-for-6 with a three-run home run and an additional run Monday in the Blue Jays' 11-10 win over the Orioles in 15 innings.

Grichuk got the scoring started in the first inning with his team-best 31st homer. The outfielder has supplied eight of those long balls in September, raising his OPS on the month to a robust .912.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Smacks grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk went 1-for-5 with a grand slam and a walk Wednesday against the Orioles.

Grichuk took Miguel Castro deep in the ninth inning to cap off a six-run inning. It was his 30th homer of the season and fifth in his last five games. He's provided more than power of late however, as he's also in the midst of a 10-game hitting streak during which he's scored seven runs and recorded 13 RBI. Known for his streakiness at the dish, Grichuk appears to be ending the campaign on a heater, though he's still hitting just .234/.284/.461 across 142 games.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Slugs two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and four RBI in a 6-4 victory against the Yankees on Sunday.

The 28-year-old reached a new career high in homers over the weekend with three against the Yankees in the three-game series. With his performance Sunday, he also surpassed his previous career bests in the RBI and run categories. Grichuck is batting .235 with 28 home runs, 71 RBI, 68 runs and two steals in 541 at-bats this season.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Posts another extra-base hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in a 6-5 victory against the Yankees on Friday.

While the 28-year-old extended his hitting streak to six games Friday, it's only raised his average two points because he's gone 1-for-4 or 1-for-5 in five of the six contests during the streak. However, he also has six extra-base hits and five RBI in the past six games. Grichuk is batting .232 with 26 home runs, 67 RBI, 66 runs and two steals in 534 at-bats this season.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Grichuk came through in the fifth inning with a two-RBI double to give the Blue Jays a 6-0 lead. He's now recorded at least one-extra base hit in four consecutive starts, including two doubles, a home run and a triple. Despite showing flashes of power, Grichuk has been frustratingly inconsistent throughout the season, as indicated by his .232/.283/.440 line across 136 games.

September 7, 2019 03:44 PM
Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk is not starting Saturday against the Rays, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

Grichuk sits for the first time since Aug. 2. Billy McKinney gets the nod in right field in his place.

Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Helps set new club record
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grichuk went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's win over the Mariners.

The 28-year-old went back-to-back with Vlad Guerrero Jr. in the third inning, the 12th time this season a pair of Blue Jays have homered in consecutive at-bats -- setting a new club record. Grichuk has gone yard three times in the last four games and six times in 14 contests so far in August, slashing .333/.379/.778 on the month in the process.
