  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Locking in at plate

    Chapman went 1-for-3 with a double in Friday's split-squad game against the Phillies.

    The third baseman seems to have found his timing at the plate, going 6-for-22 (.273) over his last eight games with three doubles and a 2:2 BB:K. Chapman's still looking for his first spring homer, but hitting for power hasn't been an issue for the 29-year-old during his career. With free agency looming next winter, Chapman has plenty of incentive to put together a big 2023 after posting a .757 OPS last year with 27 home runs and 76 RBI.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Notches two extra-base hits

    Chapman went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, three RBI and two additional runs in Tuesday's 18-11 win over the Phillies.

    Chapman owns an .821 OPS thus far in September, but a good chunk of his offensive production has come in the last four games. During that span, Chapman has collected four extra-base hits (three home runs, one double) while driving in seven and scoring seven times.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Goes yard twice Friday

    Chapman went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 6-3 win over the Orioles.

    The third baseman got the Blue Jays on the board with a solo shot off Jordan Lyles in the second inning, then capped his team's scoring with a two-run blast off Joey Krehbiel in the sixth. Chapman snapped a 25-game homer drought with the performance, but on the season he's got 26 home runs and 71 RBI through 139 games, nearly identical power numbers to 2021.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Drops in order with Springer back

    Chapman will serve as the Blue Jays' designated hitter and No. 6 batter in the first game of Monday's doubleheader with the Orioles.

    While George Springer received the day off in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Pirates, Chapman made his third start of the season out of the leadoff spot, going 1-for-5 at the dish. Springer is back in the lineup for the first game of Monday's twin bill, so Chapman predictably moved back down in the order, and he'll likely find himself in the sixth or seventh spot in most games moving forward while all of Toronto's key pieces are at full health. Since the beginning of August, Chapman is hitting just .198 with four home runs, 15 runs, seven RBI and one stolen base in 30 games.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: On base three times against BoSox

    Chapman went 2-for-4 with a walk, a triple, a run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Red Sox.

    The veteran third baseman put together his first multi-hit effort since Aug. 8 as he continues to underperform his metrics. Chapman is sitting in the 96th percentile in the league in average exit velocity and 94th percentile in barrel rate, but all he has to show for it is a .236/.315/.467 slash line. His numbers have been even worse in August -- .174/.260/.391 through 19 games -- but half his 12 hits on the month have gone for extra bases, including four of his 24 homers on the year.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Clubs solo shot

    Chapman went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Twins.

    Chapman began the Blue Jays' comeback push with his fifth-inning blast. While he ended July hot, the third baseman had gone 0-for-11 to begin August before snapping the skid Friday. He's up to 21 homers, 58 RBI, 57 runs scored, a stolen base, 18 doubles and a .241/.320/.473 slash line through 100 games.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Power surge continues

    Chapman went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Tigers.

    The third baseman gave the Blue Jays an early lead by taking Bryan Garcia deep in the second inning, but the offense quickly ran out of steam. Chapman's gone yard three times in the last two days to extend his hitting streak to eight games, but he's been locked in for longer than that at the plate -- over his last 18 contests, he's slashing a sizzling .385/.467/.815 with eight homers and 18 RBI.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Chapman: Homers twice in win

    Chapman went 2-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI and a walk in Thursday's 5-3 win against the Tigers.

    Chapman gave Toronto its first lead with a two-run shot to left field in the fourth inning, and he tacked on a solo shot in the sixth. The third baseman extended his hitting streak to seven games with the pair of long balls, and he's hitting a robust .520 (13-for-25) with three homers, nine RBI and nine runs over that stretch. Chapman is still batting just .245 on the season, but he's posted a .320 mark through 22 games in July.
