Toronto Blue Jays

  1. 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.

  2. Omar Vizquel wants to be a major league manager next year

    Aug 10, 2012, 6:09 PM EDT

    Omar Vizquel

    No major leaguer has gone directly from playing to managing since Pete Rose was doing double duty for the Reds in the 1980s. Omar Vizquel hopes to change that, though; he wants the chance to interview for managerial openings this winter. “I want to manage now,” Vizquel told FOXSports.com’s Jon Morosi. The fact that both…

  3. Brett Lawrie is heading to the DL

    Aug 9, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Brett Lawrie

    Wow, an injured Toronto Blue Jays player? That’s unpossible! Brett Lawrie has a strained oblique and has missed several games now, and it’s not getting any better, to the Jays are sending him to the DL retroactive to August 4. Lawrie, who is hitting  .282/.326/.416 with nine homers, should be ready to come off as…

  4. Pirates send Alex Presley back to Triple-A again

    Aug 8, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Houston Astros v Pittsburgh Pirates

    For the second time this season the Pirates have demoted their Opening Day left fielder and leadoff hitter, Alex Presley, to the minors. This time the demotion back to Triple-A comes because Presley’s playing time vanished when the Pirates called up top prospect Starling Marte to play left field and traded for Travis Snider to…

  5. Jose Bautista to undergo second MRI on wrist

    Aug 7, 2012, 6:23 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    Jose Bautista was in sudden, excruciating pain when he injured his left wrist on July 16, yet the Blue Jays came back the next day and said the injury was merely an inflamed tendon. Color me stunned that there may be more to it than that. Bautista, who last swung a bat on Wednesday, is…

  6. Oft-injured Dustin McGowan to undergo shoulder surgery

    Aug 7, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Dustin McGowan

    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…

  7. Toronto rookie Drew Hutchison needs Tommy John surgery

    Aug 7, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Drew Hutchison Getty

    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…

  8. 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…

  9. Felix Hernandez outduels Hiroki Kuroda in two-hit shutout against Yankees

    Aug 4, 2012, 4:17 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez AP

    After CC Sabathia pitched a complete game against the Mariners last night, Felix Hernandez thoroughly dominated the Yankees this afternoon. King Felix allowed just two hits in a complete game 1-0 victory over the Bombers. He struck out six and walked a pair while throwing just 101 pitches. The Yankees didn’t get a runner in…

  10. The Athletics win in walk-off fashion again

    Aug 4, 2012, 9:29 AM EDT

    Coco Crisp Reuters

    I’d be lying if I said I stayed up to watch the very end of this, but the Athletics topped the Blue Jays 5-4 in 15 innings last night — or, early this morning, depending on your time zone — for their major-league leading 13th walk-off win of the season. Coco Crisp played the role…

  11. Jose Bautista’s return timetable “very much up in the air”

    Aug 2, 2012, 12:50 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    Jose Bautista resumed swinging a bat last week, but the Blue Jays slugger isn’t close to returning from a sprained wrist. Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports that Bautista “is still experiencing some discomfort” and his return timetable “remains very much up in the air” 17 days after the injury. Bautista told Chisholm that a hand…

  12. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Rangers celebrate

    One person’s thoughts on who made out best and worst at the trade deadline. Winners Texas Rangers: GM Jon Daniels wasn’t interested in parting with third baseman Mike Olt, much less shortstop Jurickson Profar, in order to counter the Angels’ Zack Greinke pickup, but he was able to keep his best prospects and land Ryan…

  13. HBT’s Trade Deadline Tracker

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:35 PM EDT

    Lets make a deal

    The 2012 non-waiver trade deadline has come and gone. Here’s your summary of who went where and for whom: 7/31/12: The Indians Acquire 1B Lars Anderson from the Red Sox for RHP Steven Wright. Quick Take: Anderson is a once-promising slugger who has seemingly run out of gas on his third time through Triple-A. Wright…

  14. 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…

    Travis Snider Reuters

    Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports the Pirates have acquired outfielder Travis Snider from the Blue Jays for right-hander Brad Lincoln. Both were first-round picks in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft, as Snider was picked 14th overall while Lincoln was picked fourth.

  16. A’s are in on Stephen Drew, out on Jimmy Rollins

    Jul 30, 2012, 7:35 PM EDT

    Stephen Drew

    7:50 p.m. EDT update: Apparently it was a false alarm. Drew exited the office and went to hit in the Diamondbacks’ indoor cage, MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert says. 7:35 p.m. EDT update:  The Arizona Republic’s Nick Piecoro reports that Stephen Drew was just called into manager Kirk Gibson’s office. It sounds like a trade may have…

  17. Blue Jays place Adam Lind on disabled list with back injury

    Jul 30, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Adam Lind

    Adam Lind missed the past three games with a lower back injury and the Blue Jays have placed him on the disabled list. Two months ago Lind was dropped from the 40-man roster and sent to Triple-A after the other 29 teams passed on a chance to claim his contract off waivers. He’s returned to…

  18. Anibal Sanchez hit hard in first start with Tigers

    Jul 28, 2012, 5:09 PM EDT

    Anibal Sanchez AP

    Anibal Sanchez stumbled in his Tigers’ debut this afternoon, giving up five runs over six-plus innings in a 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays. Sanchez, who was acquired from the Marlins this week along with second baseman Omar Infante, allowed eight hits and three walks. This included a season-high three home runs. Edwin Encarnacion and…

  19. Jose Bautista resumes swinging bat following wrist injury

    Jul 28, 2012, 2:31 PM EDT

    John Farrell, Jose Bautista

    Jose Bautista is unlikely to return from the disabled list when he’s first eligible on Wednesday, but he’s making progress. Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports that Bautista swung a bat today for the first time since injuring his left wrist on a swing on July 16. The 31-year-old slugger went through a series of dry…

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

    Jul 27, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Toronto Blue Jays

    Blue Jays 10, Athletics 4: Backatcha, Athletics. A night after the A’s slammed the Jays, Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer to lead the charge for Toronto, ending the A’s seven game winning streak. This came after the A’s took a 3-0 lead, so nice moxie by the Blue Jays there. Mets 3, Diamondbacks 1:…

  21. Francisco Cordero hasn’t made a very good first impression in Houston

    Jul 26, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v Houston Astros

    Francisco Cordero went from Toronto to Houston as part of last week’s 10-player swap and the Astros, having traded closer Brett Myers and setup man Brandon Lyon, installed Cordero as their new closer. To absolutely no one’s surprise, it hasn’t worked out very well. Cordero was terrible for the Blue Jays, throwing 34 innings with…

    Jul 26, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Blue Jays pitcher Ricky Romero blows a gum balloon during practice at their spring training facility in Dunedin

    Ricky Romero showed a steady progression in his first three seasons, as his ERA went from 4.30 to 3.73 to 2.92 with similar improvements in walk rate and strikeout-to-walk ratio. He emerged as a top-of-the-rotation starter for the Blue Jays last season, making his first All-Star team at age 26 and throwing 225 innings with…

  23. A’s torch Blue Jays 16-0 for seventh straight win

    Jul 25, 2012, 10:50 PM EDT

    Jemile Weeks, Josh Reddick

    The A’s had a nice little thing going over the weekend in sweeping a four-game series against the Yankees. In all, they entered their series against Toronto having won five straight games by exactly one run. Needless to say, they weren’t content with such efforts against the Blue Jays. After beating Toronto 7-2 on Tuesday,…

Arencibia suffered a fractured right hand during Wednesday night’s game against the visiting Athletics and will be out of commission for approximately six weeks.

  25. Detective Sam Holbrook botches the call

    Jul 20, 2012, 7:35 PM EDT

    Sam Holbrook

    Sam Holbrook may have had the right idea, but it just didn’t do him any good. In the first inning of Friday’s Blue Jays-Red Sox game, Edwin Encarnacion hit a grounder to third with Colby Rasmus on third base. Will Middlebrooks decided to throw home to try to retire Rasmus on the play, and though…
