Ex Blue Jays star Kevin Pillar has emerged as one of the leagues top hitters in a surprise turn of events late in his career.

Things were looking grim for Pillar earlier on this season as it appeared he may have been destined to play his last season in the big leagues. The former Jays' "superman" performed poorly with terrible averages across the board for the Chicago White Sox - hitting a meager .170 through a total of 17 games.
In a pivotal point in his baseball career, the Los Angeles Angels took a massive gamble on Pillar. The Angels signed him to a one year deal where Pillar would try to turn his luck around on the west coast. Since being acquired by the Angels, Pilllar has materialized as one of the hottest hitters in the majors.
Since May 1st 2024, Pillar has managed more than 50+ at-bats and is averaging a stellar .407 at the plate. He is currently tied with Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero jr. for first place in this category.
Although the Angels season is quite easily compared to the Blue Jays' struggles, who are sitting a grim 20-33 record, Pillar has found a new home with the Angels finding himself in a position to contribute in key moments. The 35 year old has proven that despite age and poor play, given right opportunity may help change the course of a season.
