A salary dump that the Blue Jays have to be pretty happy about so far.

He didn't stall out at Triple-A, he tried to play through a very trying time, as his Mother was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer at the end of 2016. She passed away last August, just a couple of weeks before his call up. I don't think he's as good as we saw during his September hot streak, but he's far better than his Minor League stats from the past two seasons. The key will be playing time, and until either Smoak or Morales is moved, he'll likely be plying his trade in Buffalo.

Rotowire is not so sanguine about his prospects:

 Tellez has been a solid hitter throughout his minor-league career, with above-average power and defensive limitations due to his size, but he stalled out a bit at Triple-A. Nobody could have predicted the small-sample offensive explosion he had last season with the big club (13 extra-base hits in 73 PA). Statcast did not support his September production, as his xwOBA was 80 points below his actual mark. In plain English -- the quality of his contact was not as good as the actual outcomes of his at-bats. Additionally, his 28.8 K% and 2.7 BB% in that tiny sample suggest major regression was coming. Tellez should head back to Triple-A with Justin Smoak and Kendrys Morales on the big-league roster. He may get another chance in 2019, but should not be expected to recapture last year's brief success.

CBS has a fairly rosy projection for 2019. Any thoughts?
