  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Goes yard twice in win

    Springer went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Royals.

    Both homers were solo shots, as Springer took Zack Greinke deep in the fourth inning before he smashed a hanging slider from Angel Zerpa over the wall in right-center field in the seventh. It's the first multi-homer game of the season for Springer, who's batting .304 (38-for-125) since the beginning of August with six homers, six steals, 22 RBI and 23 runs, and the veteran outfielder now sits one long ball shy of his eighth career 20-homer campaign.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Reclaiming leadoff spot

    Spinger is starting in right field and batting leadoff Tuesday against the Nationals, and manager John Schneider said he'll likely use the outfielder atop the lineup for the rest of the season, Ethan Diamandas of reports.

    The 33-year-old operated as Toronto's primary leadoff man throughout the first half but has mostly hit cleanup over the past month while Whit Merrifield handled leadoff duties. Springer has a .717 OPS in 94 games when hitting atop the order this season, but he'll nonetheless move back to that spot for the final five weeks.

Springer now holds a .258 average with 17 home runs, 53 RBI, 70 runs scored and 17 stolen bases on the season.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Blasts 15th homer

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Rejoins lineup Sunday

    Springer (ankle) is starting in right field and batting fifth Sunday against the Reds.

    The veteran outfielder sat out the past two games while nursing a jammed left ankle, but he'll return to the starting nine for Sunday's series finale in Cincinnati. Springer has a .316/.375/.439 slash line with a home run, three stolen bases, seven RBI and seven runs through 15 games in August.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Day-to-day with jammed ankle

    Springer's absence from the lineup for the past two games is due to a jammed left ankle, but he's available off the bench Saturday against the Reds, Keegan Matheson of reports.

    Springer's two-game absence had previously been unexplained, but it always seemed likely that an injury was the cause. Thankfully, the Blue Jays don't expect him to require a trip to the injured list. If there's a negative spin on this news, it's that the injury first occurred Wednesday, so it can't be used to explain a poor stretch which has seen him hit .198/.291/.271 in his last 25 games.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Sits for second straight

    Springer is out of the lineup for the second game in a row Saturday against Cincinnati.

    The Blue Jays have yet to announce any specific injury or illness for Springer, but it's unusual to see the veteran outfielder miss back-to-back games while healthy. His .562 OPS over his last 25 games may have led the Jays to decide to give him a few days to clear his head, or those struggles may be indicative of a nagging injury that has yet to come to light. Whatever the reason, it will be Cavan Biggio in right field again Saturday.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Sitting amid slump

    Springer is not in the lineup Friday at Cincinnati.

    Daulton Varsho, Kevin Kiermaier and Cavan Biggio will start across the outfield for the visiting Blue Jays. Springer has slashed just .198/.291/.271 over his last 111 plate appearances dating back to July 20, though he did tally his 16th stolen base of the season in Wednesday's series finale against the Phillies.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Snaps homer drought in win

    Springer went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in a 1-0 win over Cleveland on Monday.

    In a game that lacked offense, Springer stood out with three of Toronto's eight hits. He produced the only run of the contest, swatting a solo shot off Logan Allen in the first inning. The long ball was the 14th of the season for Springer and snapped a 23-game homerless streak. He's bounced back from an ice cold 2-for-49, 13-contest stretch by posting a modest modest six-game hitting streak during which he's batting an even .500 (12-for-24) with four extra-base hits, four RBI, five runs and a stolen base.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: On base five times against BoSox

    Springer went 4-for-4 with a walk, two runs scored and a stolen base in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Red Sox.

    The veteran outfielder appears to be breaking out of his slump, going 6-for-13 over his last four games while drawing four walks. Only one of those hits, a Friday double, has gone for extra bases, but Springer should begin adding some thump to his output soon enough. On the season, he's slashing .253/.324/.385 with 13 homers, 14 steals, 43 RBI and 60 runs in 107 contests.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Sits amid slump

    Springer is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles.

    The struggling Springer will get a day off after the Blue Jays' decision to move him down from the leadoff spot to No. 5 in the order over the weekend failed to spark his dormant bat. He went 0-for-13 with five strikeouts in the Blue Jays' series victory over the Angels and is now in a 1-for-39 rut at the plate over his last 10 games. Cavan Biggio will spell Springer in right field and bat eighth Monday.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Moved down to five spot

    Springer has been moved down to the fifth spot in the Blue Jays' batting order for Friday's game versus the Angels, Keegan Matheson of reports.

    It's the first time since July of 2021 that Springer has batted anywhere other than leadoff. The demotion coincides with a 1-for-26 stretch at the plate for the right fielder. Whit Merrifield has been elevated to the leadoff spot for Friday's contest.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Sitting out Tuesday

    Springer isn't in Toronto's lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers.
