Outfield is among the areas the Toronto Blue Jays will look to improve this off-season. Jose Bautista is gone and Steve Pearce and Ezequiel Carrera currently form a sub-par platoon in left field, so the need is obvious. “They’re going to bring in another outfielder,” Mike Wilner said during the Sportsnet Hot Stove on Saturday. “I honestly believe there’s a starting outfielder for the Blue Jays in 2018 who’s not in the organization right now.” Prospect Teoscar Hernandez, acquired from the Houston Astros in the summer for Francisco Liriano, enjoyed a strong September with the Blue Jays after his call-up from the minors and appears to at least be in the mix for an outfield spot this spring. But before fans get too hyped about the 25-year-old who hit .261/.305/.602 with eight home runs in just 26 games, they should take a step back, says Wilner.
Should Blue Jays have high hopes for Teoscar Hernandez?
