  1. 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…

  2. Sergio Santos needs another arm surgery

    May 14, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays' pitcher Santos reacts after giving up a run to the Boston Red Sox during the ninth inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Sergio Santos missed nearly all of last season following shoulder surgery and after just five appearances this season he’s going back under the knife, as the Blue Jays announced that he’ll undergo surgery to “clean out” bone chips/spurs from his elbow. As far as elbow surgeries go that’s a pretty minor one, but given Santos’…

  3. Breathe easy, everyone: Melky Cabrera is going to get his World Series ring

    May 13, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    The Giants’ 2012 World Series win didn’t feature any contributions from Melky Cabrera, but their 2012 regular season sure did. And it’s not going unrecognized: Cabrera will receive his championship ring when the Giants visit the Blue Jays, Cabrera’s new team, on Tuesday. Manager Bruce Bochy performed a similar act last month with Chicago Cubs’…

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

    May 13, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Chicago White Sox

    White Sox 3, Angels 0: Chris Sale was fantastic. And not just because of that suh-weet 1983 throwback jersey. A perfect game into the seventh and then the hit that inning to Mike Trout was all the Angels could muster. Indians 4, Tigers 3: Watched this one with the girlfriend’s parents. Tigers fans. Let’s just…

  5. Jon Niese hammered for eight runs as ERA rises to 5.93

    May 11, 2013, 3:31 PM EDT

    Jon Niese Getty

    When Jon Niese was awarded his first Opening Day assignment this year, the hope was that he would help lead the Mets’ rotation with Johan Santana sidelined and R.A. Dickey in Toronto. However, while Matt Harvey has quickly emerged as that No. 1 guy, Niese hasn’t looked anything close to the same pitcher. Niese’s early…

  6. Brandon Morrow scratched from Sunday start due to neck and back stiffness

    May 11, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    Brandon Morrow Getty

    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.…

  7. Rajai Davis placed on disabled list with strained oblique

    May 11, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    Rajai Davis AP

    After leaving last night’s game with a strained left oblique, Blue Jays outfielder Rajai Davis was placed on the 15-day disabled list this morning. Davis told Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca that the injury has been nagging him since earlier this week, but he appeared to aggravate it when he grounded out in the fourth inning…

  8. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    May 11, 2013, 8:54 AM EDT

    Jon Lester Getty

    Cardinals rookie right-hander Shelby Miller grabbed headlines around baseball last night for his dominating performance against the Rockies, but Red Sox left-hander Jon Lester was nearly perfect in his own right, as he tossed a one-hit shutout as part of a 5-0 victory over the Blue Jays. It was the 10th complete game of Lester’s…

  9. It has come to this for the Blue Jays: Ramon Ortiz is starting tonight

    May 10, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Ramon Ortiz

    Toronto’s rotation is so wrecked by injuries that the Blue Jays have called up 40-year-old Ramon Ortiz to start tonight against the Red Sox. Seriously, here’s proof from the Blue Jays’ official website and everything: Obviously being 40 years old doesn’t preclude someone from still being a good pitcher, but being 40 years old and…

  10. Josh Johnson is out until at least June

    May 10, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Josh Johnson

    Josh Johnson is eligible to return from the disabled list Monday, but Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports that he’s not expected to be back from a triceps injury until at least June. General manager Alex Anthopoulos laid out a recovery plan that includes Johnson starting his first minor-league rehab game on May 21, but added:…

  11. Quote of the Day: The Blue Jays are playing “hard as crud”

    May 10, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

    Crud

    R.A. Dickey got a no-decision and the Blue Jays got the loss last night. Yet another loss in a season full of them so far. Dickey explains that it’s not about the lack of effort: “It’s just sad, because you pour your heart and soul into the game and it doesn’t always end up in…

  12. J.A. Happ expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks

    May 9, 2013, 7:34 PM EDT

    J.A. Happ

    J.A. Happ was released from the hospital yesterday after he was hit in the head by a line drive during Tuesday’s start against the Rays. While the most important thing is that he’s going to be OK, the Blue Jays are going to have to get by without him for a little while. According to…

  13. Brett Lawrie is making friends on Twitter again

    May 9, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Brett Lawrie

    Near the end of last season Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie got so worked up about Twitter that he announced he was quitting, only to rejoin almost immediately. Today he’s worked up again, no doubt because the Blue Jays are in last place at 13-22 and being decimated by injuries, and Lawrie decided to…

  14. Florida health officials refer Anthony Bosch case to prosecutors

    May 9, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Anthony Bosch

    The wheels grind slowly, but they grind: The Florida Department of Health, which sent a cease-and-desist order to Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch last month, says it has referred the case to the Miami State Attorney’s office and the Florida Attorney General’s office. Ed Griffith, a spokesman for Miami State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle, said local…

    Ricky Romero: human yo-yo: #BlueJays option Ricky Romero to AAA Buffalo and designate Edgar Gonzalez for assignment.Select contracts of Ramon Ortiz and Mickey Storey — Shi Davidi (@ShiDavidi) May 9, 2013   He was clearly lost last year, yet the Jays didn’t send him down. He was lost this spring, so they sent him. Down.…

  16. Brandon McCarthy sounds off on pitcher helmets

    May 8, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    Brandon McCarthy

    Pitcher safety is being talked about again after J.A. Happ was hit in the head by a line drive yesterday and Brandon McCarthy, who needed brain surgery after being struck by a line drive last season, posted some interesting thoughts on Twitter just now: Anybody taking the hard line stance today that pitchers should be…

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

    May 8, 2013, 6:50 AM EDT

    New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey pitches against the Chicago White Sox during the fourth inning of their MLB Inter League baseball game at CitiField in New York

    Mets 1, White Sox 0: For as good a pitcher as Matt Harvey is, something is clearly wrong with him given that he did not get the win in this game. The object of the game is to win it, Matt. You clearly lack The Will to Win, as I’m sure Hawk Harrelson mentioned during…

  20. J.A. Happ leaves on stretcher after taking line drive to head

    May 7, 2013, 8:28 PM EDT

    happ getty

    Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ departed the field on a stretcher after taking a Desmond Jennings line drive off the left side of his head in the second inning of his start Tuesday evening against the Rays. Happ appeared to be conversing with paramedics as they led him off in a cart, but his neck…

  21. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    May 7, 2013, 6:44 AM EDT

    Andrelton Simmons

    Braves 7, Reds 4: The Braves weren’t going to be able to maintain any sort of momentum if the offense was all Justin Upton — who can’t do it alone — and Evan Gattis — who is, after all, a rookie. Last night they had help from Andrelton Simmons who hit two bombs and drove…

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

    May 6, 2013, 6:58 AM EDT

    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…

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

    May 4, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    dickey getty

    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…

  24. Blue Jays lose Josh Johnson to DL, call up Ricky Romero

    May 2, 2013, 2:20 PM EDT

    Josh Johnson

    More bad news for the Blue Jays, who placed Josh Johnson on the disabled list with a triceps injury after initially holding out hope that he could start Friday. Instead they’ll call up Ricky Romero, who’d been banished to the minors after a miserable 2012 season that saw him go 1-13 with a 7.35 ERA…

  25. R.A. Dickey will make weekend start after MRI exam

    May 1, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher R.A. Dickey looks towards the New York Yankees dugout after Yankees Lyle Overbay hit a go ahead two-run home run during the seventh inning of their MLB American League baseball game at Yankee Stadium in New York

    R.A. Dickey has been bothered by neck and back problems for most of the season, but an MRI exam showed no structural damage and the Blue Jays announced that he’s expected to take his normal turn in the rotation Saturday against the Mariners. Toronto manager John Gibbons told John Lott of the National Post that…
