Rowdy Tellez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Tuesday's win over the Yankees by a 7-3 score.

Tellez has yet to pick up a hit over 23 plate appearances with one walk and eight strikeouts to start the season. The 26-year-old DH could lose his spot in the lineup if he does not turn things around and can be dropped in standard fantasy leagues.
Rowdy Tellez is on the Blue Jays' roster for their Wild Card Round series against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Tellez nearly missed the final 1/3 of the season with a knee strain but has progressed enough to be included on Toronto's roster. He'll likely serve as a pinch-hitter, if at all, once the series begins.
Blue Jays GM Ross Atkins says Rowdy Tellez (knee) is "unlikely" to be back in time for the wild card round.
Manager Charlie Montoyo said the same thing earlier this week. Tellez has been ruled out for the rest of the regular season already.
