Latest Update Colby Rasmus drove in the Jays only run Friday on a solo-home run Sat Jul, 19, 12:16 AM
Is very athletic and blessed with a fine mix of size, speed and power at the plate. A good hitter who knows how to take a walk, he also has the range and versatility to play a quality center field.
Flaws: : Has some holes in his swing and will strike out in bunches. Needs to keep polishing up his whole game. Is mildly injury-prone. Doesn't use his speed enough on the base-paths.
Good way for Jays center fielder to start of the second half of the season, who now has four hits in his last 13 at-bats (.308) after going hitless in his previous 14 at-bats. Rasmus is that type of player that produces in small bunches and with plenty of home games over the next week or so he may be worth rostering, at least in the short-term.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Gibbons seems to have opened his manager's handbook to the platoon section recently. It is tough to stay atop a division, so making moves to keep the offense on track is always a smart move.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
It could help explain why he has just three hits over his last 28 at-bats over his last nine games, then again we are talking about a hitter whose career batting average is does not hoover too far above the Mendoza Line. His recent performances pretty much epitomize what you should expect from Rasmus as two of those three hits left the yard, so long as the 'wrist injury' is more of a discomfort than it is an injury.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Just what the doctor ordered, a game against homer friendly Marco Estrada. Rasmus will look to build off of Tuesday's game and string together a nice offensive stretch.Analyst: David Kerr
