Lourdes Gurriel Jr. swipes a bag on Tuesday

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. went 1-for-3 with a run scored, an RBI, and a stolen base on Tuesday against the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact

Gurriel hasn't been particularly productive this season, and his .243/.295/.369 slash line would represent a career-worst across the board. But his average exit velocity and hard hit percentage are actually career-bests, so there's certainly hope that he can turn things around. Gurriel is more of a filler player at this point who can chip in everywhere but not come close to winnng you a category. He's worth rostering, but don't be above benching him in any given week depending on the rest of your options.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. doubles on Wednesday against Yankees

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. went 1-for-4 with a double on Wednesday against the Yankees.

Fantasy Impact

Gurriel hasn't provided much from a fantasy perspective thus far, but most things under the hood check out fine. His average exit velocity and hard-hit rate are in the top 88 percent of baseball and he's striking out less than ever before. Batting in the middle of the Toronto lineup, it's only a matter of time before he starts piling on the counting stats, so continue to roster and start him and trust that the production will be there.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. (hamstring) back in the lineup Wednesday vs. Red Sox

According to Marino Pepen, Blue Jays LF Lourdes Gurriel Jr. (hamstring) is back in the lineup Wednesday vs. the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact

After missing Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, Gurriel Jr. will return to the Blue Jays lineup against the Red Sox on Wednesday. The team has slotted the veteran to play outfield and hit fifth in the lineup. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. has a .294 batting average with 5 hits, a home run, an RBI, and 2 runs scored in five games against the Red Sox this season.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. collects two hits, including a home run on Monday

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. hit his second home run of the season on Monday and also doubled in Monday's win over Boston.

Fantasy Impact

Gurriel continues to have a strong season at the plate. Though the home run power has not stood out(just two this season), Gurriel continues to hit for average and get on base at a solid clip. Gurriel continues to be an under-the-radar asset for fantasy baseball.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. drives in two runs on Sunday in loss to Astros

Toronto Blue Jays LF Lourdes Gurriel Jr. went 2-for-5 at the plate on Sunday, hitting a RBI double along with a solo home run in the Jays' 8-7 loss to the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Gurriel's two hits at the plate on Sunday were clutch as he helped spur the offence early on with a solo shot and then his biggest hit came in the 10th inning as he drove in the go-ahead run with a double. More impressive than his bat on Sunday was the outfielders arm as he kept the game alive throwing out Michael Brantley at third who was trying to stretch a triple, unfortunately defensive runs save does not have as much implication in fantasy but it does help his case for playing every game in outfield for the Jays as he also bats .283.
