Spencer Horowitz is i ready for the MLB offensively as he is slugging crazy numbers in Triple-A, but, is his limited ability on defense and lack of versatility hindering his much anticipated promotion?

Will we see Spencer Horowitz get into a game this weekend? 🤔


Despite Horwitz's modest arm strength and lack of versatility, the Blue Jays are experimenting with him at a different positions in order to try and fit him somewhere in the lineup.


Spence leads the way with this double play 👀



He is starting to get reps at second base, a hole where the Jays have not solidified a clear starter. Cavan Biggio started off well but has since cooled off and struggled in the month of May.

The 29-year-old ias 1-for-10 with six strikeouts in five games during the month of May

Last year, he hit .337 with 41 extra-base hits in 107 games, boasting a .945 OPS and a rare ability to walk (78) more than he struck out (72). In 35 Triple-A games this year, he has 15 doubles, two homers, and 24 RBIs with a .967 OPS.

The Jays cannot be patient anymore, if someone is struggling, put someone else in, they need to be well above .500 if they even want to sniff a playoff spot.
