Three triples for Hech ...

... And surgery for Travis d'Arnaud. 
Two significant stories today for the Blue Jays: Adeiny Hechavarria went 4-for-4 in the Arizona Fall League and had three triples. Now that makes a pretty headline, but the fact remains Hech is batting .214 at the bottom of the order. Still no plate discipline and no leadoff skills. Don't get too ga-ga over Hech's offense.

In the meantime, d'Arnaud returned to Arizona for surgery to repair torn ligaments in his left thumb. The injury occurred at Panama while d'Arnaud, the 2011 Eastern League MVP, was playing for Team USA, according to the Toronto Sun's Bob Elliott ... I will have more reaction on the injury tomorrow after talking with the Blue Jays.
