    Blue Jays starter Josh Johnson will return from the disabled list on Tuesday, per Scott Miller of CBS Sports. Johnson was sidelined with a triceps injury after his April 21 start against the Yankees, but felt good after his latest rehab start. The Jays acquired Johnson in the mega-trade with the Marlins during the off-season.…

    UPDATE: A little ominous, despite the claim of Morrow making his next start: According to a #BlueJays spokesman, Morrow’s forearm is just sore and he is still scheduled to make his next start.We’ll find out more later — Gregor Chisholm (@gregorMLB) May 28, 2013   1:31 PM: Watching the Braves-Blue Jays game.

    Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie left yesterday’s game with a sprained ankle. And he’s out of the lineup for today’s Jays-Braves game as a result.  In his place will be the Braves’ old friend Mark DeRosa. No word on how Lawrie’s sister feels about it all.

    May 28, 2013, 6:25 AM EDT

    Miami Marlins  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Rays 10, Marlins 6: Two three-run homers for Kelly Johnson. He also singled, doubled and stole a base. He has 24 RBI in 21 games in May. Six straight losses for the Marlins despite what was, for them anyway, an offensive outburst. Tigers 6, Pirates 5: While it was his second win in a row…

  6. Brett Lawrie’s sister has just as much fun on Twitter as he does

    May 27, 2013, 1:10 PM EDT

    Brett Lawrie

    Brett Lawrie has a bit of a checkered Twitter history. He’s a Twitter drama queen and goes after “haters” and all that stuff that you’d think a highly-paid professional athlete would and should be above. But he’s a kid, really, and kids do silly stuff on social media all the time. And it appears to…

  7. Cole Hamels is 1-8

    May 26, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Cole Hamels

    Phillies starter Cole Hamels lost his eighth game this afternoon as he was vastly out-dueled by Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg in the Nats’ 6-1 victory. Hamels allowed five runs (three earned) in 6.1 innings, striking out six and walking one as his ERA was actually lowered to 4.43. The first two months for Hamels have…

  8. Munenori Kawasaki’s incredible post-game interview

    May 26, 2013, 6:45 PM EDT

    Munenori Kawasaki; Esmil Rogers; Steve Delabar

    The Blue Jays trailed the Orioles 5-2 entering the bottom of the ninth inning in today’s series finale against the Orioles, but they were able to put together a rally against closer Jim Johnson. Following an RBI single by J.P. Arencibia and an RBI ground out by Mark DeRosa, Munenori Kawasaki hit a two-out, two-run, walk-off…

  9. Blue Jays place Darren Oliver on DL, call up Sean Nolin

    May 24, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Darren Oliver Getty

    Blue Jays left-hander Darren Oliver has been his usual effective self this season at age 42, posting a sub-3.25 ERA for the sixth straight season, but now he’s headed to the disabled list with a strained shoulder. To replace Oliver on the roster Toronto called up Double-A left-hander Sean Nolin, a 23-year-old who was their…

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

    May 24, 2013, 6:59 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Boston Red Sox

    Indians 12, Red Sox 3: The Tribe’s bats had a nice night with Yan Gomes, Mark Reynolds and Michael Bourn all racking up multiple RBI. Oh, and you may or may not have heard this, but Terry Francona, currently the Indians’ manager, used to be the Red Sox manager and this was his first time back in Boston since he…

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

    May 23, 2013, 6:57 AM EDT

    Star Trek into Darkness

    Phillies 3, Marlins 0: Cliff Lee shuts out the Marlins on three hits. Granted, it doesn’t take anyone as good as Lee to shut out the Marlins, but that’s nothing that Lee could help. He was dominant. Just like Benedict Cumberbatch in that scene when he killed all those [alien race redacted to avoid spoilers]…

  12. The NL All-Star starting lineup will outshine the AL’s

    May 22, 2013, 11:42 PM EDT

    Justin Upton

    OK, so there hasn’t been any actual All-Star ballot results released yet. That doesn’t mean I can’t do my fun little exercise here. What follows is my best guess at the All-Star Game starting lineups. National League CF Andrew McCutchen 2B Brandon Phillips 1B Joey Votto LF Justin Upton RF Bryce Harper 3B David Wright…

  13. Joe Maddon reverses himself on Yunel Escobar’s gesticulations

    May 22, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Toronto Blue Jays

    On Monday Joe Maddon said he wasn’t pleased with Yunel Escobar making the “safe” sign as he crossed home plate following a home run in Monday’s loss. Last night he changed his mind on that. From Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times: “Some people point to the sky, he shows a safe sign. For…

  14. Outside strikes to lefties are becoming a problem

    May 22, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

    Cabrera 9th inning

    Our Blue Jays commenters are fit to be tied today due to the called strikes to Melky Cabrera in the ninth inning of last night’s Jays-Rays game. Strikes one and three to Melky were clearly outside. Here’s Brooks Baseball’s plot of the at bat:   Pitch one and three were called strikes, pitch two was…

  15. Baseball’s discrimination against old players has to stop

    May 21, 2013, 5:38 PM EDT

    miguel batista getty

    Sorry. That headline may have been a bit dramatic. But see, I turn 40 in July. And while I’m generally cool with that — and while I am, in all honestly, in The Best Shape of My Life — it has dawned on me pretty clearly that we are almost to the point where there…

  16. Josh Johnson throws three innings in first rehab start

    May 21, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Josh Johnson

    Josh Johnson made his first minor-league rehab start yesterday, throwing three innings of one-run ball at Single-A. Johnson, who’s been out since April 21 with a strained triceps, struck out five and walked zero while allowing three hits against the Mets’ affiliate. Johnson had hoped to be back in the Blue Jays’ rotation by now,…

    May 21, 2013, 6:49 AM EDT

    Clayton Kershaw

    Dodgers 3, Brewers 1: After the last scene of Don Mattingly’s managerial life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that at many times along the path of his time in Los Angeles, especially at the very lowest and saddest times, there was only one set of footprints. Clayton Kershaw then whispered, “My precious…

  18. J.A. Happ progressing slowly due to knee issue

    May 18, 2013, 9:45 PM EDT

    J.A. Happ

    J.A. Happ was hit on the head with a Desmond Jennings line drive on May 7, suffering a minor skull fracture. While falling to the ground, Happ twisted his knee, and it is the latter injury that is causing him to progress slowly as the lefty has yet to pitch off a mound. Manager John…

  19. Robinson Cano homers twice in win over Blue Jays

    May 18, 2013, 5:20 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano Getty

    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, who was recently skipped twice in Toronto’s rotation due to neck and back tightness, gave up five runs in five innings in the loss. Cano did…

  20. Josh Johnson to begin minor league rehab assignment Monday

    May 18, 2013, 4:05 PM EDT

    Josh Johnson Getty

    Josh Johnson was off to an awful start before he landed on the disabled list last month with right triceps inflammation, but he’s ready to return to game action. Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports that Johnson is slated to begin a minor league rehab assignment Monday with High-A Dunedin. He will likely need two or…

  21. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    May 18, 2013, 8:58 AM EDT

    Chris Sale Getty

    After tossing a one-hit shutout against the Angels in his last start on Sunday, Chris Sale got the best of them again last night. Sale struck out a season-high 12 over 7 2/3 scoreless innings as the White Sox topped the Angels 3-0 at Angel Stadium. The 24-year-old southpaw gave up just three hits and…

  22. Jose Reyes could return by the end of June

    May 17, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays Jose Reyes hits a single against the Houston Astros in Dunedin

    Jose Reyes is making progress on an ankle injury suffered on April 12 against the Royals. MLB.com’s Gregor Chisholm reports the shortstop had a walking boot removed and talk part in stretching prior to tonight’s game against the Yankees. Another surprising piece of news: Reyes was expected to be out until the All-Star break, but…

  23. Two Orioles pitchers are learning the knuckler

    May 17, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Knuckleball

    When Tim Wakefield was winding down I was worried that we’d not have any knuckleballers. Then R.A. Dickey emerged from years of obscurity. Dickey, of course, will not last forever, so we’re faced again with the possible extinction of knuckleballers. Thank goodness there are two of them on Dagobah right now, learning from the knuckleball…

  24. Did Melky Cabrera lie about his World Series ring “ceremony”?

    May 15, 2013, 12:04 PM EDT

    melky getty

    Struggling to think if this is more weird or more insignificant. Hank Schulman of the Chronicle thinks Melky Cabrera is lying about why Bruce Bochy gave him his World Series ring in private yesterday as opposed to in some public “ceremony” of sorts.  Cabrera said it was Bochy’ idea. Bochy said a Blue Jays official…

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

    May 15, 2013, 6:26 AM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura

    Pirates 4, Brewers 3: Andrew McCutchen with a walkoff bomb in the 12th. John Axford surrendered the lead in the eighth. He’s got a nifty 9.20 ERA now. Dodgers 2, Nationals 0: Clayton Kershaw stuck out 11 in eight and two-thirds shutout innings. He tossed 132 pitches: the most in his career and the most…
