Grichuk went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in Monday's loss to the Yankees.
The outfielder is heating up, slashing .316/.366/.553 over the last nine games with two homers, five RBI and six runs, although his 3:13 BB:K over that stretch is still worrisome. Grichuk's overall numbers on the season are down, but he does have 14 long balls in 77, putting him on pace to top last year's career-high 25.
Grichuk went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a walk Friday against the Red Sox.
Grichuk delivered a two-run home run in the top of the third inning, and he singled home a run in the seventh to push the lead to four. The 27-year-old is slashing .228/.287/.425 with 14 home runs and 31 RBI over 74 games in 2019.
Grichuk went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's 10-5 loss to the Angels.
The streaky outfielder had gone 5-for-36 (.139) in nine games since his last homer, but this outburst now gives him 13 long balls on the season through 69 games -- putting Grichuk well on pace to top last year's career-high 25. Teoscar Hernandez left Monday's game with a wrist injury, and if it proves to be serious, Grichuk would once again be left standing as the Jays' top option in center field.
Grichuk is not in the lineup Thursday against the Orioles.
It appears to be a regular day off for Grichuk, who has started the past 17 games and slashed .167/.233/.364 with four homers and seven RBI during that stretch. The Blue Jays are going with an outfield consisting of Lourdes Gurriel, Teoscar Hernandez and Cavan Biggio from left to right in this one.
Grichuk went 2-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI and three runs overall in Wednesday's 11-7 win over the Yankees.
Grichuk got things started for the Blue Jays with a two-run shot in the first inning and provided an insurance run with his solo homer in the eighth. The 27-year-old was 3-for-27 over the prior seven games, but he busted out Wednesday to help Toronto set a new season high with 11 runs scored.
