The past week has produced some prime time action around the American League starting with the Toronto Blue Jays. The Jays entered the week on a hot streak winning five straight games to close out the previous week before picking up three games sweeps over the Miami Marlins and Boston Red Sox this past week.

Overall the Blue Jays catcher went nine for 21 with nine runs scored, one double, one triple, two home runs and eight runs batted in. This type of production helped the Blue Jays to win eleven straight games and make a move in the American League East.
