    It’s one step forward, one step back for the Blue Jays. While Josh Johnson is expected to return on Tuesday, the Blue Jays just announced that Brandon Morrow has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm strain. Morrow left Tuesday’s start against the Braves after two innings with the injury. The…

    Robinson Cano homered twice while David Phelps had the longest outing of his career as the Yankees topped the Blue Jays 7-2 this afternoon at Yankee Stadium.

    Brandon Morrow has already been pushed back once this week due to neck and back stiffness, but now the Blue Jays have scratched him Sunday’s scheduled start against the Red Sox. Chad Jenkins, who was called up from Triple-A Buffalo to take Rajai Davis‘ spot on the roster, will make the start in his place.…

    Allen Craig

    Cardinals 10, Brewers 1: The four-game sweep of the Brewers. Four RBI for Allen Craig. That’s six straight wins for the Cards, who are in their customary first place position in rather quiet fashion. The six first place teams right now: Boston, Detroit, Texas, Atlanta, St. Louis, San Francisco. Not many surprises there. I guess…

  6. R.A. Dickey surrenders grand slam as struggles continue

    May 4, 2013, 4:00 PM EST

    Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey appeared to be getting back on track having logged quality starts in three out of his last four appearances entering this afternoon’s match against the offensively-impotent Mariners. Over six innings today, though, the right-hander allowed three home runs, including a first inning lead-off home run to Michael Saunders (his first…

  7. Anibal Sanchez had himself a ballgame

    Apr 26, 2013, 9:48 PM EST

    Atlanta Braves v Detroit Tigers

    With all due respect to Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann, the author of a one-hit shutout against the Cincinnati Reds, Anibal Sanchez was tonight’s best pitcher. The right-hander, who signed a five-year, $80 million contract with the Tigers back in December, shut out the Braves with a franchise record 17 strikeouts over eight innings. The Braves…

    Reynolds_Greg

    Greg Reynolds, who was once the No. 2 overall pick in the 2006 draft by the Rockies, has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Reds. At this point Reynolds is little more than minor-league filler despite still being just 27 years old. Reynolds has a 7.47 ERA in 94 career innings as a big…

  12. Red Sox banking on John Farrell becoming a better manager in Boston

    Oct 21, 2012, 2:52 AM EST

    John Farrell

    There’s simply no way the Red Sox could have looked at John Farrell’s work in Toronto and came away with the idea that he was a great manager. The Blue Jays were a horrible baserunning team, they had Omar Vizquel questioning their clubhouse leadership and their win total decreased in both of his years at…

  13. Red Sox can do better than John Farrell for next manager

    Oct 4, 2012, 1:22 PM EST

    John Farrell; Marvin Hudson

    With Bobby Valentine officially gone after months of being left dangling on the hook, the focus in Boston has immediately shifted to Blue Jays manager John Farrell. And I’m left to wonder why. Now, Farrell had a sterling reputation in five years as Boston’s pitching coach. But managing a team is a different animal. And…

    New York Mets starting pitcher R.A. Dickey reacts to the crowd after getting his 20th win of the season after the Mets defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates in their MLB National League baseball game at CitiField in New York

    Mets 6, Pirates 5: R.A. Dickey wins his 20th, striking out 13 in the process. I don’t care if wins aren’t supposed to matter. It’s cool. He’s old and he struggled for years and he has no freaking ligament in his elbow and he seems like a pretty cool guy and all of that and…

    Jeremy Hefner, Terry Collins

    The Mets’ Jeremy Hefner was pulled from his start Thursday against the Phillies after failing to retire any of the seven batters he faced.

    The Rays lost for an MLB-high 11th time while allowing two runs or less Friday in dropping a 2-1 game to the Blue Jays. Tampa Bay outhit Toronto 10-4 in the contest, but could muster only a single run, that coming when Desmond Jennings homered in the third. The Rays had pinch-runner Elliot Johnson cut…

    After CC Sabathia pitched a complete game against the Mariners last night, Felix Hernandez thoroughly dominated the Yankees this afternoon. King Felix allowed just two hits in a complete game 1-0 victory over the Bombers. He struck out six and walked a pair while throwing just 101 pitches. The Yankees didn’t get a runner in…

    The Blue Jays had yet another starter get hurt last night, with Henderson Alvarez leaving the game against Boston due to a sore elbow. He’s expected to avoid the DL, but the Jays already have three of his rotationmates there: Brandon Morrow (oblique), Kyle Drabek (elbow) and Drew Hutchinson (elbow). Now comes word today that Nestor…

    In the wake of yet another injury to a starting pitcher Monday, the Blue Jays have signed 49-year-old Jamie Moyer to a minor league contract. Moyer requested and received his release from the Orioles last week after going 1-1 with a 1.69 ERA in three starts for Triple-A Norfolk. He was 2-5 with a 5.70…

    Being a starting pitcher for the Blue Jays is a pretty dangerous profession at the moment. According to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com, Henderson Alvarez left tonight’s start against the Red Sox in the sixth inning with soreness in his throwing elbow. Alvarez is the fourth Blue Jays’ starter to leave a game due to injury…

    Jeremy Guthrie has been a mess for the Rockies with a 7.02 ERA and league-high 15 homers allowed in 13 starts after they acquired him from the Orioles in February, and Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that they’re “aggressively trying to trade” the veteran right-hander. According to Renck the Blue Jays are among…

    Drew Hutchison Reuters

    This hasn’t been a good week for the Blue Jays’ starting rotation. After losing Brandon Morrow to an oblique strain and Kyle Drabek to a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow, now it appears Drew Hutchison could be headed for an extended absence. According to Mike Wilner of of Sportsnet Radio The FAN 590,…
