Kevin Pillar: The New and Improved Blue Jays Superman!
Kevin Pillar has been the Toronto Blue Jays lead-off hitter for the past six games. He now has a seventh game hitting streak, and looks better than he has ever been before at the plate. Along with Justin Smoak and Darwin Barney, he has been one of the best hitters on the 2017 Blue Jays team. But from striking out in almost every at bat last year, how did he come to where he is today?
The 2015/2016 Jays sluggers have had freezing bats in the past thirteen regular season games. Bautista, Martin, Pearce and Travis have a combined batting average of .125, while Pillar, Smoak and Barney are averaging .328 combined. Who would have guessed that?
