Toronto Blue Jays: Will They Have Two 30+ HR Hitters?

I came across a really cool website called HR Pace.com, which basically takes all the guess work out of calculating how many home runs and RBI’s that a hitter is on pace for.

Taking a look at the numbers below, the Blue Jays have two potential 30+ HR hitters in Aaron Hill and Adam Lind.

Hitter HR Pace
Aaron Hill 40.11
Adam Lind 34.29
Alex Rios 18.58
Lyle Overbay 18.38
Rod Barajas 16.71
Vernon Wells 15.53
Marco Scutaro 12.38
Kevin Millar 9.91
Jose Bautista 5.51


Incredibly, Aaron Hill averages a home run per 17.42 at bats. That leads all second baseman in the league and ranks in the Top 10 players in the MLB in HR Pace.

Coming in a close second on the Blue Jays, Adam Lind averages a home run about once every 18.14 at bats.

Even if Hill and Lind trail off a little bit in the final eight weeks of the season, they should put themselves in a good position to clear at least 30 home runs.

The last time the Blue Jays had two 30+ HR hitters on the team was back in 2005 when Troy Glaus hit 38 home runs and Vernon wells hit 32.
