Rowdy Tellez Blue Jays Career
Tellez made his Major League debut with the Blue Jays on September 5, 2018. He hit the first pitch he saw for a double in his debut at-bat as a pinch hitter against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Tellez hit six doubles in his first three games, becoming the first Major League player to accomplish so since 1913.
His six doubles were the first time a Major League player hit three consecutive doubles in the live-ball era, the first time an American League rookie hit six doubles in a three-game span since Joe DiMaggio in 1936, and tied the record set by Chris Dickerson in 2008 for the most extra-base hits in a player’s first three games.
Tellez became the first player in the big leagues since 1913 to hit seven doubles in his first seven games.
He recorded 10 extra base hits in his first 40 plate appearances, tying former catcher Taylor Teagarden for the most by a pitcher since 1913.
He batted .314/.329/.614 in 70 at-bats for the 2018 season, with 9 doubles, 4 home runs, and 14 RBIs.
Tellez made the Opening Day roster for the Blue Jays in 2019.
He blasted a home run with the highest exit velocity for a Toronto Blue Jays home run in the Statcast era on April 11th (since 2015).
At the age of 24 years and 38 days, he became the fifth-youngest Blue Jay to hit a grand slam.
He hit 13 home runs in his first 65 major league games and 17 home runs in his first 85 games, becoming the only player in Blue Jays history to do it.
In 93 at-bats with Buffalo in 2019, he batted .366/.450/.688 with 7 home runs and 21 RBIs in 26 games.
In 370 plate appearances with Toronto, he batted .227/.293/.449 with 21 home runs and 51 RBIs.
Tellez joined Eric Hinske (24 in 2002) and J.P. Arencibia as the third Blue Jays rookie to smash 21 or more home runs (23 in 2011)
