by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2013) Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar homered for the third time this season Saturday in the second to last game of the year against Tampa Bay. Pillar had two hits in the game. 

The left fielder went deep in the bottom of the fifth inning off Brandon Gomes. It was a two-run shot for the Jays. He finished 2 for 4 with two runs scored and is batting .204 on the season. 

The 24-year-old Pillar has three two-hit games in his last seven contests and two homers with five RBI over that stretch. 


Kevin Pillar adds a couple career firsts


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2013) Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar hit his first career home run in the majors Saturday in Houston. Pillar went deep for the first time off Brad Peacock in the fifth inning for a three-run blast. 

Pillar finished the game going 2 for 4 with the three RBI. He added a single and is batting .133 on the year over a small sample size. 

Pillar started his career 2 for 26 (.077) over his first nine contests before hitting his first home run in his first multi-hit game Saturday. 


Kevin Pillar records first major league hit


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2013) Blue Jays outfielder and rookie Kevin Pillar recorded his first major league hit Tuesday in New York in the second game of a doubleheader against the Yankees, MLB.com reports. 

Pillar's single to right-center field in the third inning was the fateful hit. It came in his fifth game. He entered Tuesday's contest having gone 0 for 13 to begin his career. 


Kevin Pillar could have a deep mixed league impact


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/15/2013) Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar has outperformed expectations at every level. In 1,240 at-bats over three minor league campaigns, the 24-year-old has hit .321, with an average of 27 steals and 28 doubles per season. In that span, he has never had an average below .307. 

Pillar should see regular at-bats the rest of the way for the Jays, assuming Colby Rasmus' oblique issue keeps him out for a majority of the remaining games and Anthony Gose doesn't push him out of regular at-bats. Pillar won't hit a lot of home runs, but he could produce a nice average and should be good for some speed.

Don't go overboard in adding him in deeper mixed leagues, because there are a couple ways this could all go south (Gose stealing at-bats and Rasmus returning quickly being the most obvious), but Pillar is a solid add in AL-only formats thanks to his solid plate production in the minors.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Pillar hit .321 with a .366 on-base percentage, .466 slugging percentage and .832 OPS in 311 minor-league games since 2011.
