After closing April with solo home runs in back-to-back starts, Gurriel hasn't been able to carry over the momentum at the plate into the new month. Even before the two-game power binge, Gurriel had been one of the more disappointing bats in the Toronto lineup, and his season OPS now sits at .510 following his slump to begin May. George Springer's (quadriceps) move back to the injured list should continue to keep an everyday role open for Gurriel, but he looks like he'll be more at risk of losing at-bats than Randal Grichuk or Teoscar Hernandez when Springer eventually returns.

He kicked things off with a two-run double in the first inning of the matinee, then added a sacrifice fly in the nightcap.

The start of 2021 has not been kind to Gurriel, who is hitting just .205 in 39 at-bats with 10 strikeouts. He also missed last weekend due to COVID-19 protocols. The outfielder hit .287 in his first three seasons combined and presumably should begin hitting more consistently this season, with Thursday's outing being a step in the right direction. Gurriel's spot in the lineup appears secure for the time being regardless of his performance, but the return of George Springer (quad), whenever that may occur, will put some pressure on Gurriel to begin producing at the plate.
The Blue Jays reinstated Gurriel (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list Monday.
