The days of Competitive September Baseball are gone. Now we’re into Expanded Roster September Baseball as we look forward to Large Adult Sons injecting some much-needed intrigue to the Blue Jays’ roster.
It’s been seven years since Troy Tulowitzki made it through a season without a trip to the disabled list. During his last Major League game on July 28th of last year, he hobbled off the field, assisted by the Blue Jays medical staff. 2019 will be Tulo’s age-34 season.
When the Blue Jays signed Jaime Garcia to a one-year deal with an option for a second year back in February, it seemed that they had found a nice bargain option for a veteran back-of-the-rotation starter. To put it bluntly — they didn’t.
The Blue Jays activated Lourdes Gurriel from the 10-day disabled list today and sent Richard Urena down to Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding roster move.
The New Hampshire Fisher Cats are the best team in the Eastern League, so it’s fitting that they had a league-high six players named to the Double-A end of season league All-Star team.
When it comes to wild weeks in the minor leagues, Jacob Waguespack’s post-trade deadline experience ranks up there. In the span of three days, the right-hander went from the Phillies organization to the Blue Jays, faced his former teammates and set a personal career high for strikeouts in one game.
I’d say it’s time to start looking forward to next year, but we’ve been doing that for months. Since we’ve pretty much all declared this season dead before June even finished, I know today is a special one. The Blue Jays have released their 2019 schedule.
Aaron Sanchez has made just 15 starts this season. He was placed on the disabled list back in late June with a finger injury. Given the fact his entire 2017 went in the gutter due to a blister and other blister-related injuries, it seemed that this was just an extension of the same thing.
Thomas Pannone channeled his inner Jesse Litsch today. The young lefty carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning today against the Trash Birds and ended up surrendering just one single over seven innings of work. That’s a hell of a first start.
While I was trying to figure out what to do with my degree in my twenties, I used to bartend at a hoity-toity boutique hotel in Yorkville. I will never forget when an old Texan sat down at the bar on a hot lazy summer day and told me that it’s not everyday that a…
According to a Joel Sherman report in the New York Post, Justin Smoak has cleared trade waivers. This hasn’t been the best year for first basemen in the American League. The 31-year-old Smoak currently leads all qualified AL 1B a 126 wRC+ and is hitting .257/.363/.465 in 2018. Last year, that 126 mark wouldn’t have even…
He’s alive! Blue Jays third-round pick Adam Kloffenstein finally made his professional debut Monday for the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays.
