Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Randal Grichuk enjoyed a very productive first season above the border, and if he can put together 150 games, career-highs across the board aren't out of the question in 2019. 


Grichuk managed to post career-highs in homers (25) and doubles (32) last season, despite missing the entire month of May. It's even more impressive that he did this in his first season in the American League, against pitchers he was unfamiliar with. 

He certainly benefitted moving into the Rogers Centre, the stadium that surrendered the eighth-most home runs per game (1.125) last season. That was a major upgrade from his days with the St. Louis Cardinals, whose Busch Stadium ranks as the sixth-worst park allowing 0.856 homers per game. 

The Blue Jays will be up against it once again this season, competing in the American League East, with the juggernaut Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees reigning supreme while the Tampa Bay Rays have made progressive strides towards improving. Toronto, however, can do some serious damage when they face off against the lowly Baltimore Orioles. 


Grichuk has only maxed out at 134 games in four seasons of MLB service. At the top, we mentioned that 150 games out of him would be ideal. If that were the case, Grichuk could finally find himself eclipsing the 30-homer mark.
