Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Will focus on 2B and LF
Schneider was not initially mentioned by Blue Jays manager John Schneider when asked about the team's second base and third base situation, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The manager listed Cavan Biggio, Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Santiago Espinal as options at those positions, adding that it will be "a cool puzzle to solve." After a reporter followed up in asking about Schneider, the skipper noted that the 25-year-old has been working out in the outfield over the offseason and will focus on playing second base and left field in 2024. This could be an indication that Schneider is not among the favorites to see the lion's share of playing time at second base, although the situation does seem fluid.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Sitting once again
Schneider is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees.
Schneider is without a hit in his past 30 at-bats and finds himself on the bench Tuesday for the fourth time in Toronto's past six games. The 24-year-old had one of the hottest bats in the majors after debuting in early August with seven homers and a 1.415 OPS in his first 21 contests, but his regression over the last couple weeks has been steep. Cavan Biggio has taken on a larger role of late and is batting cleanup as Toronto's second baseman Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Not in Sunday's lineup
Schneider is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.
Schneider worked as Toronto's primary second baseman for the first half of September, but he's 0-for-30 over his past eight contests and will sit Sunday for the third time in five games. Whit Merrifield will start at second base and bat eighth in the series finale at Tampa Bay.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Out of lineup Friday
Schneider isn't starting Friday against the Rays.
Schneider is 0-for-26 with 11 strikeouts across his last seven games, so he'll get a day off to regroup Friday. Santiago Espinal will start at second base in Schneider's place and bat ninth.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Takes seat Wednesday
Schneider is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees.
Schneider started the previous 13 games but will receive a day to reset after he posted a .674 OPS and 33.3 percent strikeout rate during that span. Cavan Biggio will man second base while Spencer Horwitz receives a start at first with Vladimir Guerrero serving as the DH.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Crushes eighth homer
Schneider went 2-for-4 with a double and solo home run in Tuesday's loss to Texas.
Schneider smashed a 418-foot moonshot off Aroldis Chapman in the ninth inning that boasted 104.9 mph exit velocity for his eighth homer of the season. The rookie has garnered 15 starts in the Blue Jays' last 16 games amid a torrid stretch dating back to Aug. 26. In 51 at-bats since then, he has hit .373 with nine doubles, five homers, 16 runs and 14 RBI.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Continues to rack up walks
Schneider went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored Sunday in the Blue Jays' 5-2 win over the Royals.
The 24-year-old rookie has only moderately cooled down from his red-hot start to his big-league career with the calendar flipping in September. While starting at second base, third base or designated hitter in eight of the Blue Jays' first nine games of the month, Schneider is slashing .269/.486/.654 with six extra-base hits (one home run, one triple, five doubles), seven runs, five RBI and 10:12 BB:K. He should have a clear path to a near-everyday role while Matt Chapman (finger) is on the injured list, and even once Chapman returns, Schneider may have played well enough to keep getting regular playing time in a super-utility role....

Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Goes yard again
Schneider went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Nationals.
The rookie got the Blue Jays on the board in the third inning with a solo shot off MacKenzie Gore. Schneider has started four straight games -- two at second base and one each at third base and left field -- as the Jays try to cover for the absences of Bo Bichette (quadricep) and Matt Chapman (finger), and he's racked up eight RBI, five runs and eight hits with six of them (three doubles and three homers) going for extra bases. Schneider's also hit fifth or higher in all four games, as manager John Schneider (no relation) rides the hot hand to try and spark an underachieving Toronto offense.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Homers, collects two more hits
Schneider went 2-for-4 with one double, a home run, two RBI and one run scored in Sunday's 10-7 loss against Cleveland.
Schneider earned a rare start against a righty and delivered with his fifth home run in just 37 at-bats for the Blue Jays. Schneider has shown to run hot and cold in his first month in the big leagues. He now has six hits in his last 11 at-bats with three homers, six RBI and five runs scored.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Big day in Saturday's win
Schneider went 3-for-3 with a walk, a double, a home run, three runs scored and three RBI in Saturday's 8-3 win over the Guardians.
Getting the start at second base and hitting fifth against rookie southpaw Logan Allen, Schneider started his afternoon off with a bang, launching a two-run shot over the wall in left field in the first inning. The 24-year-old infielder seems to be settling into a short-side platoon role for Toronto, which limits his fantasy utility, but he's remained productive when he gets into the lineup -- through his first 40 big-league plate appearances, he's batting .424 (14-for-33) with four homers and nine RBI....

Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: On bench for third straight
Schneider is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.
Schneider was a popular waiver-wire pickup after he opened his big-league career with nine hits -- including two home runs -- in his first three games, but he's gone 1-for-12 with seven strikeouts over his subsequent four contests and no longer looks to be in store for steady playing time. He'll be on the bench for a third straight game Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Not in lineup Tuesday
Schneider is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Guardians.
Schneider has gone 9-for-17 (.529) with two home runs, five RBI and three runs scored through his first four major-league games, but he'll take a seat Tuesday for the first time since his Aug. 4 promotion from Triple-A Buffalo. Cavan Biggio is playing second base and Whit Merrifield will cover left field.... See More ... See Less
