  1. Yankees’ Ivan Nova, Francisco Cervelli exit with injuries

    Apr 26, 2013, 8:08 PM EDT

    Ivan Nova

    At this rate, the Yankees might run out of players. Two more players are headed to the infirmary as pitcher Ivan Nova and catcher Francisco Cervelli both exited tonight’s game against the Blue Jays with injuries. Cervelli hurt his hand on a foul ball from Jays batter Rajai Davis in the first inning, per ESPN’s…

  2. Orioles lose extra-inning game for the first time in a year

    Apr 24, 2013, 5:21 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays v Baltimore Orioles

    Baltimore had won 17 straight extra-inning games dating back to April 11, 2012, but that streak came to an end this afternoon against Toronto. Orioles closer Jim Johnson, who’d been such a huge part of all their late- and extra-inning success, walked Maicer Izturis with the bases loaded to force in the go-ahead run in…

  3. Jose Reyes out 1-3 months with severe ankle sprain

    Apr 13, 2013, 12:55 AM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays' Reyes reacts to the pain after hurting his ankle in the sixth inning against the Kansas City Royals at baseball game in Kansas City

    The 2013 season in Toronto opened with so much promise, but the first half of April has brought only disappointment to Blue Jays fans. Not only have big acquisitions R.A. Dickey, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle all gotten off to terrible starts, but now Jose Reyes is expected to miss 1-3 months with an ankle…

  4. Jose Bautista is back in the Blue Jays’ lineup

    Apr 9, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Does this look like a doubles swing to you?

    After missing the past three games with an ankle injury Jose Bautista is back in Toronto’s lineup at designated hitter for today’s game against the Tigers. Bautista tweaked his ankle sliding into second base Thursday and Rajai Davis filled in for him in right field during the three-game weekend series versus Boston. Adam Lind is…

  5. Breaking down the huge Toronto-Miami trade

    Nov 13, 2012, 8:16 PM EDT

    Jose Reyes

    It’s not official yet, but here are some early thoughts on the trade as it’s currently being presented: Blue Jays acquire SS Jose Reyes, RHP Josh Johnson, LHP Mark Buehrle, INF-OF Emilio Bonifacio, C John Buck and $4 million from the Marlins for SS Yunel Escobar, RHP Henderson Alvarez, SS Adeiny Hechvarria, LHP Justin Nicolino,…

    darren oliver getty

    Veteran left-handed reliever Darren Oliver was said to be considering retirement earlier this month. But that apparently won’t be happening. According to beat writer Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com, the Blue Jays exercised Oliver’s $3 million club option on Wednesday. They also re-signed outfielder Rajai Davis to a one-year, $2.5 million deal after declining his $3…

    Bryce Harper

    In addition to the box scores, I also watched Bill Clinton last night. No matter what your politics, I hope we can agree that Clinton makes everyone want to listen to their “Siamese Dream” cassette and drive around in their Chevy Cavalier, waiting for their pager to blow up.  Anyway: Nationals 9, Cubs 1: Gio…

  9. Scratch that: Joe Saunders no longer has a perfect game going against the Blue Jays

    Sep 3, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles v Toronto Blue Jays

    UPDATE: Never mind. Sixth inning and Adeiny Hechavarria hit a single off of him and then Rajai Davis walked. Still. Whatever. 2: 44 PM: No, I don’t think this will last because it’s Joe Saunders, but it says an awful lot about the state of the Blue Jays that Mr. Saunders has thrown five perfect innings…

  10. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 13, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Rajai Davis

    Blue Jays 10, Yankees 7: Holy frijole, did you see Rajai Davis’ catch, robbing Casey McGehee of a home run in the seventh? The guy is like 5”9″ and the wall is like ten feet and he went Spud Webb on that bad boy. Or Spiderman. Or something. Just wow. Otherwise, the Jays beat the tar out…

  11. Rajai Davis knows timing is everything

    Aug 12, 2012, 10:39 PM EDT

    Rajai Davis

    Look at the way Rajai Davis sets up for one of the best catches you’ll see all year. Not only did Davis rob Casey McGehee there, but he also doubled twice and knocked in five runs as the Blue Jays beat the Yankees 10-7 on Sunday.

  12. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 6, 2012, 5:42 AM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Tigers 10, Indians 8: I was at this game, and I gotta tell ya, until the 9th inning it was one of the more lame, butt-dragging tie games you’ll ever see. Omar Infante and Austin Jackson kept hitting, but apart from that the highlight until then was Joe West getting all ejecty for no good…

  13. Mariners acquire Eric Thames from Blue Jays

    Jul 31, 2012, 1:19 AM EDT

    Eric Thames

    The Jays’ big position battle this spring was Eric Thames versus Travis Snider for left field. Thames was handed the job, but eventually both ended up back in the minors. Now both are out of the organization entirely, having been traded within a half hour of each other tonight. Thames was sent to Seattle for…

  14. Blue Jays call up Travis Snider after 10-player trade

    Jul 20, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    snider batting getty

    All it took for Travis Snider to get another chance in Toronto was a 10-player trade. Following their big swap with the Astros this morning the Blue Jays have recalled Snider from Triple-A, where he hit .335 with 13 homers, 16 doubles, and a 1.021 OPS in 56 games. It’s worth noting that Las Vegas…

  15. Travis Snider has setback with wrist injury at Triple-A

    May 31, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    snider batting getty

    Earlier this week the Blue Jays demoted starting left fielder Eric Thames to Triple-A despite the guy he beat out for the job in spring training, Travis Snider, being on the minor league disabled list with a wrist injury. And now any thoughts of Snider being ready to step back into the Blue Jays’ lineup…

  16. Blue Jays demote starting left fielder Eric Thames to minors

    May 29, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Blue Jays outfielder Eric Thames warms up in left field during an inter-squad game at their MLB American League spring training facility in Dunedin

    Eric Thames had a solid 95-game debut with Toronto last season and then beat out Travis Snider for the starting left field job during spring training, but the Blue Jays have demoted the 25-year-old to Triple-A after he hit just .243 with three homers and a .652 OPS in 46 games. That represents a 137-point…

  17. Banged up Blue Jays find themselves in a bind

    May 27, 2012, 6:11 PM EDT

    Brett Lawrie

    Jose Bautista thought he was finished being a third baseman. Brett Lawrie had never even gotten started at shortstop. Yet both players were forced to change positions after Yunel Escobar injured his groin in Sunday’s loss to the Rangers. With Kelly Johnson absent due to a sore hamstring and Yan Gomes getting sent down before…

  18. Mets’ catcher Rob Johnson tossed a scoreless inning against the Blue Jays last night

    May 19, 2012, 11:11 AM EDT

    Rob Johnson Getty

    The Blue Jays really put a hurting on the Mets last night, beating them 14-5 while connecting for five home runs. J.P. Arencibia and Rajai Davis each homered twice while the recently-promoted Yan Gomes became the first Brazilian-born player to homer in the major leagues. As is often the case in blowouts of this magnitude,…

  19. Blue Jays pick Eric Thames in left field, send down Travis Snider

    Mar 25, 2012, 8:25 PM EDT

    Blue Jays outfielder Eric Thames warms up in left field during an inter-squad game at their MLB American League spring training facility in Dunedin

    Travis Snider performed well enough to win the Blue Jays’ starting job in left field this spring. Unfortunately for him, Eric Thames played well enough to hold on to it. Snider was sent packing Sunday despite his four homers and 16 RBI in 17 games this spring. He was hitting .271/.340/.625, though he did strike…

  20. Running down the rosters: Toronto Blue Jays

    Feb 10, 2012, 12:30 AM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    Toronto GM Alex Anthopoulos has made a bunch of smart moves since taking over after the 2009 season and he was presented with one of the greatest gifts in major league history when the Angels took Vernon Wells‘ contract off his hands and sent back Mike Napoli in return, yet his Blue Jays are still…

    After declaring the Houston Astros in position of the game’s worst rotation earlier today, I thought it’d be fun to look at the rest of the worst. So here are MLB’s most gruesome position situations heading into the 2012 season: Catcher: Dodgers – A.J. Ellis, Matt Treanor, Tim Federowicz The Dodgers let the slugging-heavy Rod Barajas…

  22. Edwin Encarnacion is playing left field in the Dominican Winter League

    Dec 24, 2011, 4:48 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim  v Toronto Blue Jays

    We heard last month that Edwin Encarnacion was going to play some left field during winter ball. Well, the experiment is officially underway. According to a report in the Toronto Sun, Encarnacion has played left field in four out of his first five games with Aguilas Cibaenas in the Dominican Winter League. Encarnacion proved to…

  23. Blue Jays acquire Rajai Davis from A’s for Trystan Magnuson

    Nov 17, 2010, 5:17 PM EDT

    rajai-davis-athletics

    According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com the Blue Jays have acquired outfielder Rajai Davis from the A’s, with MLB Trade Rumors reporting that Oakland will receive minor-league reliever Trystan Magnuson in return. Oakland claimed Davis off waivers from San Francisco in early 2008 and he thrived in his first opportunity as a big-league regular the…
