        Blue Jays lose Juan Francisco to waivers

        The Red Sox announced that they’ve claimed corner infielder Juan Francisco off waivers from the Blue Jays. Francisco, 27, demonstrated considerable power when he made contact in 2014. In 106 games and 320 plate appearances, he hit .220/.291/.456 with 16 homers. However, he struck out in volume, whiffing in 36.3 percent of plate appearances.

        A massive (6-foot-2, 245 pounds) left-handed hitter, Francisco’s offensive abilities are typically limited to right-handed pitchers. In his career, he’s hit .248/.310/.476 with one homer in every 20 plate appearances against righties, with a .159/.213/.210 line and just one homer in 150 career plate appearances against lefties. In 2014, he hit .238/.306/.504 against righties (a 129 OPS+, meaning an OPS that was 29 percent better than the league against righties)
