    Some bad news and some good news for the Blue Jays tonight. Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 the FAN reports that right-hander Sergio Santos has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a triceps strain while Brett Lawrie will be activated from the disabled list tomorrow. Santos has been dealing with soreness in his…

    Jose Reyes‘ ankle injury has the Blue Jays considering their infield options, including giving third baseman Brett Lawrie some time at second base during his minor league rehab assignment for a rib cage injury. “We just wanted to take a look at it,” general manager Alex Anthopoulos told Robert Falkoff of MLB.com. “We feel we’re…

  3. HBT Weekend Wrap

    Apr 15, 2013, 8:20 AM EDT

    Wrap

    God, wasn’t that family thing/working/cleaning/ thing a pain in the butt this weekend? Kept you from paying attention to baseball? Yeah, me too. Thankfully, then, here is everything you missed that mattered: Jose Reyes is gonna be gone a while. Josh Hamilton continued to distinguish himself. As the hour gets late in the bar, everyone…

  4. Still too early to worry about faltering aces

    Apr 13, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays' starting pitcher Dickey throws against the Boston Red Sox during the first inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    The ERA leaderboard, organized greatest to least, is a bit of a shocker. At the top you’ll find both of the defending Cy Young award winners (David Price and R.A. Dickey), as well as Cole Hamels, Matt Cain, and Stephen Strasburg, among others. You’ll hear this a lot but it bears repeating: it’s still very…

    Jose Reyes Reuters

    The news is in on Jose Reyes‘ left ankle. And it’s not good. According to Scott MacArthur of TSN Radio 1050, Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos told reporters in Kansas City this afternoon that Reyes is expected to miss three months. This is essentially the worst-case scenario of the timetable presented by Anthopoulos last…

  6. John Buck has driven in more runs than the Marlins have scored this season

    Apr 13, 2013, 1:33 PM EDT

    New York Mets John Buck high-fives teammate Ike Davis in game against Twins in Minneapolis

    When the Marlins included John Buck in their blockbuster deal with the Blue Jays in December, they were mostly happy to get rid of his salary. He was later considered a throw-in as part of the deal that brought top prospects Travis d’Arnaud and Noah Syndergaard to the Mets for R.A. Dickey. However, the 32-year-old…

  7. 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…

  8. Jose Reyes leaves game with ankle injury

    Apr 12, 2013, 10:16 PM EDT

    Jose Reyes

    In the sixth inning of tonight’s game against the Royals, Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes slid into second base awkwardly on a stolen base attempt. He immediately grabbed for his ankle, then spent most of the time writhing in pain in tears until he could be carted off the field. The stolen base was Reyes’…

  9. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 12, 2013, 6:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v San Diego Padres

    Had tickets to the Columbus Clippers-Indianapolis Indians game. Daisuke Matsuzaka was scheduled to start. Then it rained and they canceled the game. I have mixed feelings about it all because, on the one hand, baseball. On the other hand I dodged the Matsuzaka bullet. Oh well. Dodgers 3, Padres 2: FISTICUFFSMANSHIP!  Zack Greinke hit Carlos…

  10. Report: MLB, player buying up Biogenesis documents

    Apr 12, 2013, 1:17 AM EDT

    Bud Selig defiant

    The New York Times is reporting that MLB, rebuffed in its attempts to get Biogenesis documents from the Miami New Times, is now paying an ex-Biogenesis employee for documents relating to the case. Which is interesting enough. Making it even more fascinating: according to the report, the league has taken this step after learning that…

  11. Brett Lawrie has two hits in first extended spring training game

    Apr 11, 2013, 8:03 PM EDT

    Brett Lawrie Reuters

    The Blue Jays are off to a disappointing 3-6 start, but they should get a boost in their lineup soon. According to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com, Brett Lawrie went 2-for-2 with two doubles and a walk today in an extended spring training game. It was his first game action since he suffered a left oblique…

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

    Apr 11, 2013, 6:53 AM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Arizona Diamondbacks

    I spent the evening seeing a preview showing of the Jackie Robinson movie, “42,” — review coming later today — so I didn’t get to watch really any baseball. Kinda glad I didn’t too. After seeing and thinking about Robinson I would have probably just thrown something at my TV if I had to watch…

  13. Don Kelly robbed J.P. Arencibia of a home run

    Lazy Tuesday afternoon baseball, Jays vs. Tigers.  J.P. Arencibia up to the plate, launches one to left field.  Don Kelly on his horse and …   Caught.  See the video of the play here.  Nice one.

  14. Jamie Moyer hasn’t given up on another comeback at age 50

    Jamie Moyer lasted only 10 starts with the Rockies last season after returning from Tommy John elbow surgery and spent the rest of the year trying unsuccessfully to pitch himself back to the big leagues at Triple-A, but he still hasn’t given up on another comeback. Moyer, who’s now 50 years old, was in Seattle…

  15. 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…

  16. Will Middlebrooks hits three homers as Red Sox crush Blue Jays 13-0

    Apr 7, 2013, 4:04 PM EDT

    Will Middlebrooks; Mike Napoli

    Third baseman Will Middlebrooks hit three homers and doubled Sunday in Boston’s 13-0 rout in Toronto. The 24-year-old Middlebrooks became the first player to hit three homers in a game this year, and he’s the youngest player to accomplish the feat since the Pirates’ Andrew McCutchen on Aug. 1, 2009.  He was the first member of the…

  17. R.A. Dickey roughed up in second Blue Jays start

    Apr 7, 2013, 3:39 PM EDT

    dickey getty

    R.A. Dickey allowed four runs in six innings against the Indians last week in his rough Blue Jays debut. On Sunday afternoon against the Red Sox, the 38-year-old knuckleballer had an even rougher time. Dickey gave up five runs in the top of the first inning and was pulled from the game with two outs…

  18. John Lackey suffers biceps strain in first start back from Tommy John surgery

    Apr 6, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    John Lackey AP

    UPDATE: Ian Browne of MLB.com reports that Lackey will fly back to Boston tomorrow for an MRI. 3:25 PM: Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com reports that Lackey left the game with a right biceps strain. Of course, that’s just the initial diagnosis and it doesn’t tell us much. We should know more soon. 3:00 PM: John…

  19. Blue Jays two-hit Red Sox in 5-0 shutout

    Apr 6, 2013, 3:56 PM EDT

    J.A. Happ

    J.A. Happ probably would have opened the season as the most well-compensated pitcher in Triple-A if Ricky Romero hadn’t struggled so mightily this spring. Inserted into the Blue Jays’ rotation instead, Happ struck out six in 5 1/3 innings and combined with three relievers on a two-hit shutout of the Red Sox on Saturday. The…

  20. Blue Jays designate right-hander Jeremy Jeffress for assignment

    Apr 6, 2013, 12:35 PM EDT

    Jeremy Jeffress Getty

    The Blue Jays went with an eight-man bullpen out of spring training in part so that they wouldn’t have to expose right-hander Jeremy Jeffress to waivers, but they are already changing course. Jeffress was designated for assignment this morning after he allowed a solo homer and two walks in one inning of work in his…

  21. Phillies give up 13 runs to Royals, but it didn’t have to be this way

    Apr 5, 2013, 8:18 PM EDT

    Erik Kratz, Chris Getz

    I should start by writing about the intentional walk that went bad in the Royals’ rout of the Phillies on Friday.  With the Phillies up 4-2 and one out in the sixth, manager Charlie Manuel decided he’d rather have lefty Jeremy Horst face Alex Gordon with the bases loaded than Kyle Kendrick or a right-handed…

  22. Jose Bautista is out of the lineup tonight

    Apr 5, 2013, 3:31 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays' Bautista looks into the stands between innings during a MLB American League baseball game against the Tampa Bay Rays in St. Petersburg

    No one thought that Jose Bautista’s twisted ankle was particularly serious last night, but it’s apparently serious enough to where John Gibbons feels like he needs a night off. Here’s the lineup for tonight’s game: Tonight’s @bluejays lineup:Reyes-SSBonifacio-2bCabrera-LFEncarnacion-1bArencibia-CDavis-RFRasmus-CFDeRosa-DHIzturis-3bJohnson-P — Blue Jays-Official(@BlueJays) April 5, 2013   Guess that’s one way to avoid ump trouble.

    Washington Nationals v Baltimore Orioles

    Dontrelle Willis and Vladimir Guerrero are going to be teammates. Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports that Willlis, who was released by the Cubs at the end of spring training, has signed with the independent league Long Island Ducks, who also announced a deal with Vladimir Guerrero this morning. Hard to say who has a better…

  24. Is Jose Bautista asking for ump trouble?

    Apr 5, 2013, 8:22 AM EDT

    jose bautista getty

    This story in the National Post about Jose Bautista arguing with umpires over the strike zone is interesting. Here’s a quote he gave Tuesday night after feeling like he got screwed on a couple ball/strike calls: “Sometimes I have trouble more than other players dealing with my production being affected by somebody else’s mediocrity,” he…

  25. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 5, 2013, 6:55 AM EDT

    Aroldis Chapman and Dusty Baker

    Reds 5, Angels 4: Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton finally upped their averages north of .000 — each went 1 for 4 and drove in a couple — but not enough to matter. Aroldis Chapman came in to pitch the ninth against the top of the order. Mike Trout singled but then he got Aybar…
