Joe Kelly gave his old mates fits. Well, maybe he gave them fits before too. Maybe they weren’t his mates. Maybe there were long-simmering disputes between him and the Cardinals about politics and religion and things. We can’t know!

The Blue Jays haven’t been able to catch a break with their pitching staff this season, so it makes perfect sense that J.A. Happ is done for the year with an injury to his right foot. According to Ken Fidlin of the Toronto Sun, Blue Jays manager John Farrell said a fracture was found in…

Blue Jays right-hander Dustin McGowan is going back under the knife, this time for arthroscopic shoulder surgery. McGowan previously underwent shoulder surgeries in 2008 and 2010, and basically hasn’t been healthy in four years, throwing a grand total of 21 innings since 2008. All of which is why it was so odd when the Blue…

Back in June the Blue Jays shut down Drew Hutchison for 4-6 weeks with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament, but framed it as good news because the 21-year-old rookie wouldn’t need elbow surgery. Unfortunately now those 4-6 weeks have come and gone, and the Blue Jays announced that Hutchison will undergo Tommy John surgery later…

Another day, another injury for the Blue Jays’ pitching staff. According to Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca, Luis Perez is done for the season with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow. The Blue Jays have yet to make an announcement on a course of action, but Tommy John surgery is almost certainly on…

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…

Here’s some good news for the injury-riddled Blue Jays. According to Richard Griffin of the Toronto Star, Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said this afternoon that Drew Hutchison will not require Tommy John surgery.

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…

After leaving last night’s start in the first inning with what was described as right elbow soreness, Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchison was placed on the disabled list this morning with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament. According to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com, Hutchison will be shut down for the next two weeks before being re-evaluated.…

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.

White Sox 2, Rays 1: Chris Sale: 15Ks and three hits in seven and a third. Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer. Red Sox 7, Tigers 4: Jim Leyland said that we saw what we saw and should write what we saw, so let’s do that: The Red Sox’ second inning rally never should have happened…

You might think that a 45-year-old in his 24th big-league season would be pretty mellow, but Omar Vizquel got ejected from last night’s game … and he wasn’t even playing. During a Drew Hutchison–Mike Napoli matchup in the fifth inning Vizquel disagreed with home plate umpire Sam Holbrook’s call of a ball and started yelling…
