Jose Bautista is not necessarily ready to return to MLB as a two-way player. “I’m a hitter,” said Bautista. “Just in case that door opens, I’ll be ready to be a hitter.”
Bautista worked out as a pitcher over the winter to continue in hopes of continuing his MLB career. It appears he was mainly a throwing partner for SP Marcus Stroman. “I’ve never stated that this was my plan or desire to make it in the big league as a pitcher.” Bautista did not play a game in the majors in 2019, and will look to latch onto a roster once or if the MLB season starts.
Jose Bautista went 1-for-1 with an RBI and walked twice in his Phillies' debut. He batted sixth in the order.
Not sure how much we'll see of Jose Bautista, a shell of his former self, as he will probably share time with Nick Williams.
The Phillies have acquired Jose Bautista from the Mets in exchange a player to be named later or cash.
While Bautista moves to a better offense, he's likely to see his playing time decrease overall as a situational bat for Philadelphia down the stretch. He posted a triple slash of .196/.339/.364 with 11 homers and two steals in 280 at-bats this season.
Joe Bautista went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in a Mets win on Wednesday.
Batting out of the leadoff spot, Bautista took Giant's starter Casey Kelly deep in the fourth inning for a 418-foot bomb. The home run was his eleventh on the season and his ninth since joining the Mets in May. His batting average still sits below the Mendoza line at .199 and he has still struggled mightily at the plate as of late. He does not carry any fantasy relevance at this point.
Jose Bautista went 3-for-4 with three runs scored, a home run, and seven RBI in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Phillies.
Bautista didn't even start the game, but replaced Brandon Nimmo after he was hit on the finger with a pitch. He's batting just .202 on the season so this game is simply a footnote in history. Bautista isn't relevant for fantasy purposes.
