Toro went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Rays.
The 24-year-old is looking like a shrewd pickup for the M's so far, despite the flak the front office received when it flipped Kendall Graveman at the trade deadline. In seven games for Seattle, Toro is slashing .440/.500/.920 with three of his nine homers on the season.
Toro went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a run in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.
Donning a Mariners uniform has undeniably agreed with Toro, who now boasts a .500 average (9-for-18) with three doubles, two home runs, four RBI, one walk, one stolen base and five runs over his first five games with Seattle. The 24-year-old was already making a strong case to keep primary duties at the keystone with those numbers, but that has been further cemented by Shed Long's (lower leg) placement on the 10-day injured list Monday.
Toro went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in Friday's 9-5 win over the Rangers.
Toro doubled and scored in the second inning and then came around to score again after singling in the third. Over the last five games, he's 7-for-16 with five extra-base hits and six runs scored. The 24-year-old infielder will carve out a prominent role in Seattle's lineup if he continues swinging the bat like this. Toro's OPS is up to .762 through 133 plate appearances this season.
Toro went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer, a walk and a steal in Wednesday's loss to Houston.
He's now gone yard in four straight games -- the first two as an Astro, and the last two now against the Astros. Toro drew the start at second base in this one, and it seems the Mariners will use him there pretty often to get his bat in the lineup. Toro's still hitting a modest .219/.297/.439 on the year, but a .198 BABIP has depressed his batting average. He has an excellent track record in the high minors (.392/.497/.600 in 33 career Triple-A games and .306/.393/.513 in his last Double-A season) and could rebound with more regular playing time with Seattle.
Toro slugged a two-run home run in his only plate appearance during Seattle's 8-6 loss to Houston on Tuesday.
Toro pinch hit for Dylan Moore in the ninth and belted a home run to right off former teammate Ryan Pressly to halve Seattle's deficit, but it proved to be too little too late. Making an early impact with his new team is an encouraging sign, though it's unclear whether Toro will receive steady playing time with Kyle Seager and Ty France presumably ahead of him on the depth chart at third base and first base, respectively.
Toro was traded to the Mariners on Tuesday along with relief pitcher Joe Smith in exchange for pitchers Kendall Graveman and Rafael Montero, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Toro's presence on Houston's roster was already becoming less necessary following Aledmys Diaz's return, and with Alex Bregman (hamstring) likely to be activated in the near future, Houston has opted to use the infielder as a trade chip to acquire some much-needed relief help. Toro was reported to be in a Mariners uniform prior to Tuesday's game against the Astros, though it's not yet clear whether he's been added to the club's 26-man roster.
Toro is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against Seattle, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Toro will yield third-base duties to Aledys Diaz despite homering in each of the past two contests. He could still see the bulk of time at the hot corner during the next few games, but Toro's role is almost certain to diminish once Alex Bregman (quad) is activated at some point in the near future.
Toro went 1-for-3 with a home run and a walk Monday in the Astros' 11-8 loss to the Mariners.
Kyle Tucker and Toro smacked back-to-back home runs off Darren McCaughan in the first inning to help stake the Astros to an early 7-0 lead, but a furious Mariners rally resulted in Houston dropping the series opener. The long ball was Toro's sixth of the season and second in as many days, but fantasy managers likely won't be able to coax much more value out of him. Alex Bregman (quadriceps) kicked off a rehab assignment Monday at Triple-A Sugar Land and could return from the injured list next week, at which point he would reclaim everyday duties at third base from Toro.
Toro went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Rangers.
Toro cranked a two-run blast in the fifth inning off Dennis Santana. It ended up being the difference maker to win the game. Despite the home run Sunday, he has struggled in July batting .175 in 57 at-bats. On the season, he is slashing .208/.280/.358 with five long balls, 19 RBI, 16 runs and three steals in 118 plate appearances.
Toro is not in the lineup Friday against the Rangers, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Toro is 2-for-17 with a home run in five games since the All-Star break and will take a seat Friday. Robel Garcia will cover the hot corner in his place.
Toro isn't in the lineup Monday against Cleveland.
Toro went 2-for-10 with a homer, two runs and a strikeout across the last three games. Robel Garcia will start at third base and bat eighth.
Toro went 1-for-3 in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the White Sox.
Toro's third-inning single was the only hit the Astros mustered against three Chicago pitchers. He remains the primary fill-in at third base for the injured Alex Bregman (quadriceps), who was expected to begin a rehab assignment in mid-July but hasn't yet. The injured third baseman could join Triple-A Sugar Land during a road trip that begins Thursday. That means Toro should be good for multiple starts this week.
Toro went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's 10-1 loss to the White Sox.
Toro was the only real blemish for Lucas Giolito, who tamed Houston's offense for nine innings. With Alex Bregman (quadriceps) inching toward a rehab assignment and activation, Toro's fantasy relevance could come to a close near the end of the month.
Toro went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in Saturday's 1-0 loss to the Yankees.
The third baseman was one of three Astros to get a hit off Yankees starter Gerrit Cole. Toro also notched his second steal of the year, but he was left on base. His hit snapped an 0-for-10 skid at the plate. The 24-year-old is slashing just .225/.292/.338 with three home runs, 15 RBI and 12 runs scored across 89 plate appearances. He'll likely continue to see most of the starts as a fill-in for Alex Bregman (quadriceps) at the hot corner.
Toro went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 3-2 win over Cleveland.
His fourth-inning blast off Eli Morgan wound up being the game's winning run, giving the Astros a 3-0 lead at the time. Toro has more than held his own since stepping in for Alex Bregman (quadriceps) in mid-June, slashing .292/.375/.479 through 14 games with three homers and 15 RBI, but with Bregman potentially set to return to action soon after the All-Star break, Toro's window for regular at-bats may not remain open much longer.
Toro isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Toro drove in all three of Houston's runs in Tuesday's loss to the Orioles, but he'll retreat to the bench for Wednesday's series finale. Robel Garcia will start at third base and bat seventh.
Toro went 1-for-3 with three RBI in Tuesday's 13-3 loss to the Orioles.
Toro delivered runs with a sacrifice fly in the second inning and a two-run single in the fifth, which tied the game at that time. He continues to be the primary fill-in at third base for Alex Bregman (quadriceps), who reported good news from an ultrasound Tuesday. Houston's starting third baseman said the procedure revealed he's ahead of schedule in his return timeline. The initial timeline had Bregman returning by the end of July.
Toro isn't starting Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Toro had started each of the last five games, and he went 7-for-21 with a home run, six RBI, three runs, three walks and four strikeouts. Robel Garcia will start at the hot corner and bat seventh.
Toro went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and an additional RBI in a 13-0 victory versus Baltimore on Wednesday.
When Toro came up to the plate in the seventh inning, Houston was already ahead by eight runs. He padded that lead with a 417-foot three-run homer, then capped the scoring on the night with an RBI single in the eighth. Toro has hit safely in all but one game since being recalled from Triple-A Sugar Land on June 17, going 10-for-24 with two homers and nine RBI over that span.
Toro went 4-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the White Sox.
Toro is making the most of the uptick in playing time with both Alex Bregman (quadriceps) and Aledmys Diaz (hand) on the injured list, and he went 7-for-11 with a home run, five RBI and three runs scored during the weekend series against the White Sox. That might be enough to keep him as the primary third baseman while Bregman is sidelined, though he might also yield some at-bats to Robel Garcia from time to time.
