The Blue Jays sold five players prior to Major League Baseball’s non-waiver trade deadline — Steve Pearce, J.A. Happ, Roberto Osuna, John Axford, and Aaron Loup — but still have a handful of possible rental players left to move in August. Uhhhh six actually I completely forgot about The Final Boss. Whoops!
The trades! Keep them coming! Good Canadian boy John Axford got to fulfill a dream of playing for his childhood team this year when the Jays inked him to a one-year deal. Now he’ll get to try to win a World Series with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The longest tenured member of the Toronto Blue Jays has been dealt to the Philadelphia Phillies. That’s right! I’m serious! Aaron Loup, who debuted with the team in 2012, was the longest tenured Blue Jay!
This is a guest post from Emily (@emilydawnlove) on Roberto Osuna. I loved Roberto Osuna. I’ve only been a serious baseball fan for the last eight years. I’m too young to remember the World Series teams and I was too checked out of baseball to have properly appreciated Doc’s glory years. On my personal pantheon…
Well this has certainly been a rollercoaster. It was reported this morning that the Blue Jays were shopping Roberto Osuna, who’s scheduled to return from his suspension in about a week, but, soon after that, it was also reported that the Jays were having no luck moving their former All-Star closer.
Roberto Osuna is set to return from his suspension from Major League Baseball on Aug. 5, and while the front office previously indicated that he will remain the team’s closer, it appears that might not be the case. According to reports from Jerry Crasnick and Ken Rosenthal, Osuna is among the players the Blue Jays…
In the pantheon of Blue Jays trades, the Travis Snider for Brad Lincoln swap of 2012 is easily among the least earth-shattering moves in franchise history. But it was meaningful for two reasons; one, it was the end of an era for one of the franchise’s most-hyped prospects. That trade was also the last #HugWatch…
We are living in a simulated version of hell. Just a few minutes after Lourdes Gurriel tied the American League record for most consecutive multi-hit games, the exciting rookie left the game with an apparent injury.
I’m not sure what Jays fans expected to get for JA Happ, but many fans are not too happy at all about this Happ trade – and the damn dumb pun is not intended.
As we’ve been expecting for quite some time, J.A. Happ has been dealt to the New York Yankees.
The Blue Jays began their 2018 firesale yesterday when they sent righty reliever Seunghwan Oh to the Colorado Rockies in exchange for two prospects — Chad Spanberger and Forrest Wall.
On one hand, Teoscar Hernandez has been one of the Blue Jays’ most impressive hitters this season. He has one of the best outfield arms in the American League, dare I even say “Jose Bautista-esque”? Yet, when it comes to defense, Hernandez evokes nightmares of Moises Sierra’s “deer in the headlights” play in the outfield.
