  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Homers twice Wednesday

    Varsho went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in Wednesday's 6-4 loss to the Yankees.

    Varsho opened the scoring with a two-run shot off Marcus Stroman in the second inning before extending Toronto's lead to 3-1 with a second homer off left-hander Caleb Ferguson in the seventh. The 27-year-old Varsho has heated up after a slow start to the year, going 8-for-25 (.320) with four homers in his last eight games. Overall, he's slashing .218/.295/.473 through his first 61 plate appearances this season.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Sits against lefty

    Varsho is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.

    The lefty-hitting Varsho will be shielded from southpaw Kyle Freeland as the Blue Jays counter with a right-handed-heavy lineup for the series finale. Varsho had started in each of the last four games and provided the most important hit of Saturday's 5-3 win, with his two-out, first-inning grand slam holding up as the difference in the victory.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Powers club with grand slam

    Varsho went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Rockies.

    Varsho punctuated a five-run first inning against Colorado starter Dakota Hudson with a grand slam, his second homer in as many days after he went 13 games without a long ball to begin the season. The 27-year-old still has yet to attempt a stolen base in 2024. He will likely need to provide some speed in order to remain relevant in mixed rotisserie leagues now that he's lost catcher eligibility.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Swats first homer of 2024

    Varsho went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Rockies.

    The 27-year-old outfielder came into the season trying to focus on hard contact rather than aiming for the fences, but the new approach hasn't translated into much production -- Friday's long ball was not only Varsho's first homer of the year, it was his first RBI. He's batting .190 (8-for-42) through 14 games, but he does have a modest three-game hit streak going.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Not in Monday's lineup

    Varsho is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mariners.

    Varsho is just 4-for-30 through 10 games this season, and he'll take a seat Monday against Seattle righty Luis Castillo. Davis Schneider will receive the start in left field and bat fifth.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Sitting versus southpaw

    Varsho isn't in Toronto's lineup for Tuesday's game against Houston.

    Southpaw Framber Valdez will take the mound for Houston to begin Tuesday's contest, meaning the left-handed bat of Varsho will start the game on the bench. Davis Schneider will fill the void in left field and bat fifth.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Late scratch with personal issue

    Varsho was scratched from the lineup Monday for the Blue Jays' Grapefruit League game against the Pirates due to a personal matter, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Though Varsho will miss the Blue Jays' spring finale, the team hasn't indicated that his availability for Thursday's season opener in Tampa Bay is in any peril. Varsho is expected to serve as the Blue Jays' everyday left fielder in 2024 and should occupy a spot in the middle-third of the batting order versus right-handed pitching.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Runs wild against Yanks

    Varsho went 2-for-2 with a walk, a run scored and three stolen bases in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees.

    The 27-year-old left fielder is now a perfect 6-for-6 on the basepaths this spring while batting .400 (12-for-30) with three doubles and an outstanding 8:2 BB:K. Varsho worked on his swing over the winter to try and emphasize line drives instead of selling out for power, and the results in camp suggest the approach is working. If he can produce more hits and get on base more often, Varsho could top the career-high 16 stolen bases he's recorded each of the last two seasons.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Looking good at plate

    Varsho went 2-for-3 with a run scored and two RBI in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees.

    The 27-year-old outfielder spent the offseason working to level out his swing and get away from the power-oriented approach he used in 2023, and so far this spring the change has yielded good results. Through 10 Grapefruit League contests, Varsho is batting .364 (8-for-22) with two doubles, two steals and a 6:1 BB:K. He's never hit above .246 in a big-league season, but a focus on making better contact could lead to a career-best performance in that category while still producing double-digit homers and steals.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Focused on correcting swing

    Varsho felt he sold out for power in 2023 and got away from the swing that had given him success prior to being traded to the Blue Jays, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports. "(That) got me just underneath the ball," Varsho said Saturday, "missing a lot of pitches that I should be hammering and getting in bad counts when you're fouling off the ball you should be hitting."

    The 27-year-old still supplied the Jays with excellent defense in left and center field, but his .674 OPS was a disappointment after Varsho had posted a .748 OPS with the Diamondbacks in 2021-22. "It's not about how high you hit it, it's about how hard you hit it and how low on a line," he said. "That was my approach going into this offseason... being able to get that feel back of staying above the baseball." Given his age and pedigree, it's possible Varsho hasn't reached his ceiling yet at the plate, but the Jays -- and those with fantasy shares in him -- would be content to see him simply regain his prior form.
