The Blue Jays and Red Sox won’t play their game as scheduled tonight.
When the Blue Jays designated Anthony Alford for assignment last week, it was pretty obvious that somebody was going to claim him.
Having lost Nate Pearson, Matt Shoemaker and Trent Thornton to injury, the Blue Jays were desperately in need of some pitching. So they went out and got Taijuan Walker from the Seattle Mariners. Walker will bring some stability to the back-end of the rotation.
Brock Holt’s time in Milwaukee has come to an end.
There are still a few days left before the trade deadline, but the Blue Jays have already found a starting pitcher upgrade.
With nearly the entire starting rotation on the Injured List, the Blue Jays badly needed a big game from the bullpen against the Red Sox on Wednesday. And that’s exactly what they got.
