Lourdes Gurriel 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

I didn’t think he was on the DL yet. Today he should be. Maybe we’ll get a Vlad call up as a result. One can dream, right? Lol

He isn't on the DL yet...  The Jays haven't made it official...  When they do, he will be put on the DL at Yahoo...

No news, eh? Saw he was taking grounders the other day. Was hoping it was closer to the 2 weeks...

It's better news than him being in a boot and doing nothing. I am being optimistic that we'll likely see him in a week or two. PLEASE!

Saw an update that they are hoping he begins running this week. Giddy up for him likely being back for fantasy playoffs.

Lets just hope he has a job when he's back. Both Aledmys Diaz and Devon Travis have been playing well recently.

He'll be 3b if needed. They were talking about it in the radio last night. Martin will catch/DH.

Yes Gibby said yesterday that Jansen is here to play, he will catch Burocki tonight..  Hopefully they platoon Martin / Morales at DH.  Gurriel can also play outfield.

Martin is a plug at this point of his carreer ... The only value he can bring to the ballclub is to retire and recycle himself into a Catcher coach ... 

 

He will get pass around until they are no other position to fill in. Next and final step DH

They did and are, but if they need someone to play 3B they can stick Gurriel there and play Martin at C or DH. Like, keep in mind that Martin won't play everyday, he's old and gets days off.

The Blue Jays have some nice pieces on this team. If they actually called up Vlad Jr. and Gurriel settled into the OF their offense would be very solid. Also with Donaldson at DH next year.

Donaldson's a UFA next year so doubt they resign him, but they've got a ton of nice young pieces to work with.

As for Gurriel I am pumped.  Like the other 2 posters above, I had added him on the Sunday he was injured in that final inning but had to move on.  This kid has some real hitting talent.

Started a rehab assignment today, looks like we will have him for the playoffs for sure.

2 for 6 and homer yesterday. Anyone think he gets activated this week? I'm asking because there is no mention anywhere on twitter or google about his return date to the majors.

Yahoo note mentions being back this weekend. 

 

He seems like a handy add where dropped for the stretch with 2B/SS/LF and how he was producing prior to the DL stint.
