Player to Watch
Well I already told you about how Adam Jones is hitting the snot out of everything along with being a plus defender. He has truly come into his own. Additionally, he has killed the Blue Jays over the years, hitting them to the tune of .285/.329/.499 with 27 home runs and 69 RBI in 128 games against Toronto. Additionally, Chris Davis has had his way with Blue Jays pitching, hitting .307/.383/.674 with 25 home runs and 61 RBI in just 75 games against the Jays.
So who else is worth watching?
None other than former Blue Jays phenom Travis Snider. He is hitting over .300 so far and has settled in nicely with his new team. Pittsburgh taught him a thing or two about humility and winning, and the Orioles are hoping he will help offset the loss of slugger Nelson Cruz or Nick Markakis. He is getting on base at a .405 OBP clip so here’s hoping he has finally arrived. Unfortunately it is in the wrong uniform.
