|Jose Bautista puts end to 0-for-17 slump with HR |

(8/27/14) Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista put an end to a 0-for-17 slump when he homered off Alex Wilson in the seventh inning of Tuesday's 11-7 loss against the Red Sox. Bautista became the third player in team history to have at least 25 homers in five straight seasons, joining Carlos Delgado (1996-2004) and Joe Carter (1991-96).
"Even yesterday, he hit two balls on the money, one to center field," manager John Gibbons, per MLB.com. "It's just a matter of time. Everybody goes through those, even your top hitters. But we need him, we need him to heat up."
|Jose Bautista continues to rake in defeat of Brewers |

Bautista also doubled in the victory in sweetening his stat line to .290/.406/.512.
|Jose Bautista homers in three-hit performance Wednesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/6/14) Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista went 3 for 4 with a double, a home run and three RBI in his team's 5-1 win over the Orioles Wednesday.

|Jose Bautista upset at team's inactivity at trade deadline |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/1/14) Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista expressed disappointment Thursday at his team's perceived inability to add talent at the trade deadline.
"Of course it's a little disappointing that we somehow weren't able to get anything done, but everybody around us that's in contenteion ... somehow figured it out," he told the Toronto Star.
The Jays had been rumored to be interested in several players, but teams such as Detroit and Oakland landed the biggest fish in the trade market.
|Jose Bautista returned from offseason wrist surgery to hit .259 with 28 home runs in 118 games. His season ended in mid-August with a hip injury -- the second time in two seasons Bautista with an injury. His .856 OPS was the lowest since 2009, but his .358 OBP was right around his career average, and he would have easily broken the 30 home run barrier for the third time in four years had he not been injured. There's still plenty of power left in Bautista's bat, and he's now a full season removed from the wrist issue, meaning he should enter 2014 at full strength. Other drafters may look at Bautista's last two seasons and drop him down their cheat sheets, pointing to a drop in power or an "injury-prone" status. But these were two freak-ish injuries and Bautista should bounce back nicely. Peg him for 35 home runs and a .265 average (with a handful of steals) and you have an early round value who may slip a bit and become a Draft Day bargain.
