Yesterday was an off-day for the Blue Jays.
Before the game, the Jays made a roster move. Anthony Alford was designated for assignment and put on waivers. And Teoscar Hernandez was recalled from Buffalo.
Alford was hitting .191/.269/.277 with 1 home run, 1 steal and one caught stealing. He has a -0.1 WAR. He was mostly used as a defensive replacement, until Hernandez was sent down to Buffalo. After that he got more starts.
Hernandez wasn’t doing much better than Alford in Buffalo. He hit .196/.293/.275 with 1 home run in 13 games for the Bisons. The game does use ‘morale’ as a factor in the game, and I’d imagine Teoscar wouldn’t be happy in Buffalo. With the Jays, before the demotion, he was hitting .257/.329/.543 with 11 home runs in 38 games.
