Though the present hasn’t always been pleasant for the Blue Jays, this season is certainly giving fans a glimpse of a bright future.
Wednesday (19) was Rowdy Tellez’s turn in the spotlight, when the 24-year-old first baseman notched the second multi-homer game of his young career and drove in four runs for the home team in an 11-6 loss to the Angels at Rogers Centre.
Tellez got Toronto on the board with a game-tying three-run home run in the second inning. The long ball was his 12th of the season and his fourth off a left-handed pitcher. He also became just the fourth left-handed hitter to homer off of Andrew Heaney, joining Shin-Soo Choo, Anthony Rizzo and David Ortiz.
