The Toronto Blue are finally showing signs of life after stringing together five consecutive victories and welcoming back some of their premier players from the DL. The Jays have outscored their opponents 25-15 during their mini-winning streak.
Blue Jays players are beginning to show up all over the league leader categories as the team finally begins to round into form.
Bautista is now tied for second on the team in home runs with 9 only trailing Justin Smoak who has launched 11 round trippers. The right-fielders three-run shot propelled the Jays to victory yesterday as the slugger is once again making pitchers pay for their mistakes.
Travis is tied for the major-league lead in doubles with Nolan Arenado at 17 and has boosted his average to .250 after a dreadful start to the 2017 campaign. Travis has been a doubles machine all month long

Kevin Pillar has slowed of late with the lumber but is still ranked 5th in the American League in hits with 56 and 5th in stolen bases with 8 thefts so far this season.
Don’t look know but pitcher Marco Estrada is whiffing batters with ease striking out 78 hitters in 68.2 innings of work and good for 3rd in the American League only behind Chris Sale and Chris Archer.
The Blue Jays go for the sweep today versus their arch nemesis from Texas but rejoice Jays fans all things are good again in Blue Jays land.
Don’t look now…….but here come the Toronto Blue Jays.
