Morales went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and three runs scored in Wednesday's loss to the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Morales was the only Blue Jay to cross the plate in this one, scoring on his ninth home run of the year and then on a pair of RBI by Lourdes Gurriel later in the tilt. The big day was just his second three-hit day of the season and helped snap a 1-for-19 funk in which he'd struck out nine times. With this current slump, the 35-year-old is slashing .238/.303/.416 on the year.

Morales is out of the lineup Sunday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Morales has managed only two hits while striking out nine times in 18 at-bats over the past seven games, so he'll get a day off to clear his head in the series finale. With Morales on the bench, Curtis Granderson will assume designated-hitter duties, opening up a spot in the outfield for Randal Grichuk.

Morales went 2-for-3 with a walk, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in a 5-4 win over the Braves on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Toronto's designated hitter celebrated his 35th birthday by blasting his sixth homer of the season. Morales is now hitting .372 (14-for-43) over his last 12 games with two home runs and four doubles and he starts to climb out of an early-season hole that has saddled him with an overall .232/.291/.381 slash line.

Morales is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Braves, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

EDGE Analysis

Morales will head to the bench for what appears to be a regular day off following a string of three consecutive starts in which he went 4-for-12. Curtis Granderson will serve as the designated hitter, allowing Randal Grichuk to start in the outfield. With Grichuk heating up lately, Morales could continue to find himself on the bench a little more often.

Morales is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Morales will hit the bench after starting three straight games. He's managed five hits over his last 11 at-bats, so perhaps he's finally starting to feel locked in at the plate. Despite his recent success, the 34-year-old is hitting .178 with four home runs and 13 RBI in 33 games this season. Yangervis Solarte is penciled into the lineup as the designated hitter, giving Devon Travis the chance to make a start at second base.
