Springer went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, two RBI and two runs in Tuesday's 7-2 win over Cleveland.
Springer bashed his 41st career leadoff homer off Zach Plesac in the first, then completed his outstanding performance with a double and a sacrifice fly. Since the All-Star break, nobody has hit more home runs in the American League than the former Astro. In that span, Springer has paced the Blue Jays in batting average, runs scored, OBP, SLG and OPS.
Springer went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Royals.
The 30-year-old led off the contest with his 10th long ball, and he clubbed his 11th homer during the third inning with Alejandro Kirk on base. Springer is hitting .358/.424/.811 with six home runs, six doubles, 10 RBI and 16 runs in 14 games since the All-Star break.
Springer went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's 6-4 win over the Royals.
Playing his first home game in the Rogers Centre, Springer showed Jays fans why he earned that big payday in the offseason. Over his last 12 games, the 31-year-old is slashing a dazzling .378/.451/.778 with four homers, seven RBI and 14 runs while mainly hitting out of the leadoff spot.
Springer went 1-for-4 with two walks, two runs scored and an RBI in Thursday's rout of the Red Sox.
He struck out in his other three plate appearances, but Springer still got his share of the production on a night when every Jays starter collected at least one hit and drove in at least one run. The 31-year-old is thriving now that he's moved into the leadoff spot for Toronto, slashing .311/.392/.667 in 12 games since the All-Star break with four homers, six RBI and 13 runs.
Springer went 2-for-6 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Saturday's 10-3 win over the Mets.
Springer homered off Taijuan Walker in the third inning to get the Blue Jays on the board. In addition, he scored off Marcus Semien's home run in the fifth frame. The 31-year-old has three long balls over his last five games. On the season, he is slashing .232/.321/.495 with eight homers, 15 RBI, 17 runs and a pair of steals in 112 plate appearances.
Springer went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Red Sox.
With Toronto down four runs in the sixth inning, Springer and Teoscar Hernandez gave the Blue Jays a jolt of life with back-to-back jacks to close the gap to one run. The homer was Springer's fourth in his past 13 games and seventh overall this season. He has been hot at the plate of late, going 7-for-13 with a pair of homers over his past four contests.
Springer went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Monday's loss to Boston.
Springer reached base three times in this one, but it wasn't enough to keep his club in the game. While the sample size with his new team has been small (24 games), he's struggled to a .235/.337/.471 slash line with six homers, 12 RBI, two stolen bases and 14 runs scored in 2021.
Springer went 1-for-3 with a home run and a walk Saturday against the Rays.
Springer crushed a first-pitch offering from Shane McClanahan to straight-away center field in the second inning to open the scoring. It was the second long ball in as many games for Springer since he was moved into the cleanup spot by Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo. The 31-year-old is hitting .333 over his past eight games, providing three homers and eight walks during that stretch. He appears to finally be a full-go after an injury-riddled first two-plus months as a Blue Jay.
Springer went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Orioles.
Springer opened the scoring with a second-inning blast off Matt Harvey, his third homer of the year and first in three games since coming off the IL. The 31-year-old hasn't been able to do much through the first three months of the season while suiting up for only seven games to date, but a healthy Springer will provide a significant boost to an already-potent Toronto offense.
Springer is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Orioles.
After returning Tuesday from his second stint on the injured list, Springer started in center field in consecutive games for the Blue Jays, going 0-for-7 with a walk and an RBI. The Blue Jays haven't yet indicated that Springer's absence for Thursday's series opener is the result of a setback with his right quadriceps, so he's presumably getting a pre-planned maintenance day. Randal Grichuk will spell Springer in center field.
Springer (quad) will be activated from the 10-day injured list and bat fifth as the center fielder Tuesday against the Marlins, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.
The Blue Jays have yet to release their Tuesday lineup, but Springer's place in it is already set. Springer has dealt with a right quad issue all season, only briefly returning for four games in late April before landing back on the IL since early May. While Springer served as an elite leadoff hitter during the majority of his seven seasons with Houston, he could see more time in the middle of Toronto's order, as Marcus Semien has settled in exceptionally atop the lineup.
Springer (quadriceps) rejoined the Blue Jays in Miami ahead of the team's two-game set with the Marlins, but it's unclear whether he'll be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's series opener, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.
Springer isn't believed to have suffered any setbacks with his strained right quadriceps coming out of his five-game rehab assignment at Triple-A Buffalo, which concluded Sunday. He went 3-for-17 with a double in those contests, and perhaps most significantly, he was able to play seven innings in center field in his final appearance. Since the Blue Jays won't have a designated hitter available in Miami, the team could delay Springer's activation if he's not scheduled to start Tuesday, but expect him to formally rejoin the 26-man roster no later than Wednesday.
Springer (quadriceps) made his fifth rehab appearance at Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, starting in center field while going 1-for-3 with two runs.
Springer exited his fourth rehab game Saturday earlier than expected, but that was a result of poor weather in Rochester rather than the result of any setback with his strained right quad, according to Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca. He returned to the lineup Sunday to play seven innings in the outfield, and general manager Ross Atkins indicated that the Blue Jays will soon have to decide whether Springer is fit to return from the 10-day injured list this week. Though Springer has served as a leadoff man in each of his four games with Toronto this season, manager Charlie Montoyo hinted Sunday that the 31-year-old will most likely bat fifth or sixth in the lineup initially when he comes off the IL, according to Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic.
Springer (quadriceps) is taking a day off at Triple-A Buffalo on Friday but is expected to continue his rehab assignment in Saturday's and Sunday's games, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.
It was previously reported Springer might be able to rejoin the Blue Jays this weekend, but instead it appears his activation is at least a few more days away. If all goes well Saturday and Sunday, the 31-year-old may be activated for the series opener Tuesday at Miami.
Springer (quadriceps) could travel with the team to Baltimore for the three-game series this weekend, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Springer began a rehab appearance with Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday and reportedly felt good after his first game action. Manager Charlie Montoyo was non-committal regarding Springer's return however, so his activation could still be some time away.
Springer (quadriceps) "felt great" after appearing in a rehab game with Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Springer made his first rehab appearance Tuesday and played five innings in the field for the Triple-A club while going 0-for-4 at the plate. He'll serve as the designated hitter for Buffalo on Wednesday, and Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said that the team will see how the outfielder feels after the game before determining his next steps.
Springer (quadriceps) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo on Monday, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Springer has been sidelined since early May due to a right quadriceps strain, but he'll play five innings in the field during Tuesday's Triple-A contest. The Blue Jays will likely exercise caution with the 30-year-old since he went back to the injured list shortly after he made his season debut in late April, and manager Charlie Montoyo said Monday that the team wants Springer to be ready to play center field once he's activated.
Springer (quadriceps) could begin a rehab assignment as soon as Tuesday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.
Oblique and quad issues have limited Springer to just four games this season. While he's seemingly trending in the right direction, the Blue Jays will want to be careful with him given their $150 million investment in Springer over the winter and the fact that he had to head right back to the injured list within a week of being activated in late April.
General manager Ross Atkins said Sunday that Springer (quad) is "very close" to beginning a rehab assignment, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Atkins didn't give a specific date for when the star outfielder could begin the rehab assignment, but based on his comments, it wouldn't be surprising for Springer to play in a minor-league game within the next week. The quad issue has been a problem for Springer all season, with the offseason free-agent signing returning for just four games in late April before heading back to the injured list. He'll continue to target a mid-June return to the Blue Jays' lineup.
Springer (quadriceps) ran sprints and did some other on-field baseball activities before Saturday's game, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
According to manager Charlie Montoyo, Saturday was Srpinger's "best day yet." That being said, the team has not detailed when Springer will begin a minor-league rehab assignment. His debut season with the Blue Jays has been derailed by injuries to this point, but once healthy, he should slot in as the starting center fielder.
