1B,DH - TOR
Rowdy Tellez went 3-for-5 with a home run, two doubles and two RBI during Wednesday's loss against the Marlins.
Tellez accounted for one of the Blue Jay's seven homers Wednesday. Designated hitting from the eighth spot, the strong performance boosted his average to the Mendoza line for the year. He has two home runs and seven RBI this season.
Rowdy Tellez isn't in the lineup Tuesday against Atlanta.
Tellez has started the Blue Jays first six out of seven games but will be sitting on Tuesday. Lourdes Gurriel will shift to designated hitter with Anthony Alford taking over in left field and batting ninth.
Rowdy Tellez was ejected during the tenth inning in Wednesday’s game against the Nationals.
Tellez struck out looking and argued with umpire Stu Scheurwater. After an exchange of words, Tellez eventually was ejected along with Blue Jays coach Dante Bichette. He went 1-for-4 with a strikeout before exiting.
Rowdy Tellez went 1-for-3 at the plate with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's 4-1 win over the Nationals.
Tellez looks like he will be the everyday DH for the Jays this season. The 25-year-old slugger hit .227 with 21 home runs and 54 RBI over 111 games and is worth owning in deeper fantasy leagues.
Rowdy Tellez will like split DH duties with a variety of hitters this year, as manager Charlie Montoyo has decided that Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will play at first base and at DH. Travis Shaw will slide over to third base.
Tellez's value takes a significant hit, as he was slated to start at first base against lefties. Now, Guerrero Jr. will take some of those at-bats away from him. Expect Tellez's ADP to fall outside of the top 500.
