Exit Interviews: Blue Jays outfielders assess their 2019 seasons

2 9 0

During the final week of the season, GM Ross Atkins and manager Charlie Montoyo held meetings with each member of the Toronto Blue Jays to discuss how things went in 2019, listen to the player’s assessment of his performance and talk about how best to push things forward. Since those conversations aren’t available to the public, here at sportsnet.ca we decided to conduct our own exit interviews for fans to digest.

Friday, in the final instalment, the Blue Jays’ outfielders assess their seasons. On Monday, we heard from the starters, on Tuesday the relievers, on Wednesday the catchers and on Thursday, the infielders.

The comments from Lourdes Gurriel Jr. were made through club interpreter Hector Lebron.

“Just some ups and downs overall. I struggled in April and had some injuries, but you talk about perseverance and it’s just pushing through those tough times and finding a way to compete and help the team win. Overall, looking at the big picture, I think it was a success. I got my first home run in the big-leagues and it was a walk-off, so that’s definitely a season highlight. In triple-A this year we were having a really good season. We won a lot of games and were close to making the playoffs. From the middle of May to the end of the season, we were always in the hunt. It was always good games and it was always fun playing. Overall, it was a fun year.

“I’m still working to try to improve. Just searching for more consistency, especially when it comes to the offensive side. I hold myself accountable and want to make myself a better baseball player.”
