Toronto Blue Jays

  1. Edwin Encarnacion joins the 40-homer club

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim  v Toronto Blue Jays

    For the third straight season the Blue Jays have a 40-homer hitter, as Edwin Encarnacion went deep last night for the 40th time after Jose Bautista reached that mark in both 2010 and 2011. Encarnacion has always had a ton of offensive upside, especially in terms of power potential, so much so that the Reds…

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

    Sep 14, 2012, 3:46 AM EDT

    St Louis Cardinals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Cardinals 2, Dodgers 1: A must-win for both teams if they wanted to stop the bleeding, but a muster-win for L.A. since they’re behind in the standings. Just didn’t happen, though. Lance Lynn, back in the rotation in a spot start, allowed one run in six innings and struck out seven to give the Cardinals a…

  3. Skipped start can’t stop Ricky Romero’s shocking collapse

    Sep 13, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Ricky Romero

    After watching Ricky Romero go 0-12 with a 7.98 ERA in his previous 13 starts the Blue Jays mercifully decided to skip his turn in the rotation last week, giving the former All-Star a much-needed break. Unfortunately it didn’t do much good. Romero rejoined the rotation last night against the Mariners and failed to make…

  4. Blue Jays GM says three spots open in 2013 lineup

    Sep 12, 2012, 6:47 PM EDT

    Edwin Encarnacion

    Alex Anthopoulos is looking ahead to 2013 and says six spots in his lineup are already spoken for

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

    Sep 10, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    B.J. Upton

    Rays 6, Rangers 0: That, my friends, is B.J. Upton.  Three homers for big brother and a two-hit shutout for James Shields. This will make Rays fans feel really good until Texas bounces them easily in the division series again. Marlins 8, Nationals 0: The Nats have not won a game since they shut down Stephen…

  6. J.A. Happ done for season with foot injury

    Sep 8, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    J.A. Happ Getty

    The Blue Jays haven’t been able to catch a break with their pitching staff this season, so it makes perfect sense that J.A. Happ is done for the year with an injury to his right foot. According to Ken Fidlin of the Toronto Sun, Blue Jays manager John Farrell said a fracture was found in…

  7. Blue Jays activate Brett Lawrie and J.P. Arencibia from DL

    Sep 7, 2012, 1:48 PM EDT

    brett lawrie ap

    Toronto’s playoff hopes are long gone, but at least the Blue Jays will have third baseman Brett Lawrie and catcher J.P. Arencibia down the stretch. Both players were activated from the disabled list today, Lawrie after missing the past five weeks with an oblique strain and Arencibia after missing the past seven weeks with a…

  8. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

  9. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 80-51

    Here’s part two of the top 111 free agents list. Part one can be found here, and I’ll be posting the top 50 tomorrow. 80. Carlos Lee (1B Marlins – Age 36): Lee still hits a fair number of liners at age 36, but his home run total has dropped six straight seasons and he…

  10. Blue Jays will skip struggling Ricky Romero in rotation

    Sep 6, 2012, 10:25 AM EDT

    Ricky Romero

    Manager John Farrell has repeatedly made it clear that the Blue Jays won’t shut down Ricky Romero despite his going 0-12 with a 7.98 ERA in his last 13 starts, but they will skip his next turn in the rotation. Romero was scheduled to start Saturday against the Red Sox, but instead he’ll skip that…

    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…

    It’s getting to be that time of year, so here is the first of two stabs at a Top 111 free agents list. The other will come shortly after the World Series concludes. Players are ranked based on how I believe teams perceive them, not how I view them myself. Essentially, I rank the players…

  13. Jose Bautista undergoes left wrist surgery

    Sep 4, 2012, 10:05 PM EDT

    jose bautista getty

    The deed is done. Or something like that. According to Shi Davidi of Canada’s Sportsnet, Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista underwent surgery in Cleveland this afternoon to repair his troublesome left wrist. The procedure was deemed an initial success, though pretty much all procedures are. Bautista will now begin a recovery period that is expected…

  14. 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…

  15. Ricky Romero is 0-12 with a 7.98 ERA in his last 13 starts

    Sep 3, 2012, 1:23 PM EDT

    Ricky Romero

    Ricky Romero finally created some reason for optimism on August 28 when he tossed seven innings of two-run ball against the Yankees, striking out six and walking two in what was arguably his best start since April. And then yesterday he threw away whatever progress he’d made and then some by failing to make it…

  16. The Orioles finally lose a one-run game while the Rays finally win one

    Sep 1, 2012, 5:18 PM EDT

    Molina Vizquel collision Getty

    We’ve heard a lot recently about the Orioles’ success in one-run games and the Rays’ inability to win one. Well, their fortunes finally reversed today. We’ll start with the Orioles. They entered the bottom of the seventh inning with a 3-1 lead against the Yankees, but things unraveled from there. Wei-Yin Chen was ahead of…

  17. Rays outhit Jays 10-4, lose 2-1

    Aug 31, 2012, 11:10 PM EDT

    Jeremy Hellickson

    The Rays lost for an MLB-high 11th time while allowing two runs or less Friday in dropping a 2-1 game to the Blue Jays. Tampa Bay outhit Toronto 10-4 in the contest, but could muster only a single run, that coming when Desmond Jennings homered in the third. The Rays had pinch-runner Elliot Johnson cut…

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

    Aug 30, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Nationals 8, Marlins 4: Bryce Harper hit two homers, bro. Jacob Turner: not really ready for the major leagues yet, bro. Mets 3, Phillies 2: Matt Harvey continues to impress (6.1 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 6K). The Phillies pitcher is listed in the box score is named “Tyler Cloyd.” I’m calling b.s.  That’s a…

  19. Yunel Escobar has career game in leading Jays past Yanks

    Aug 29, 2012, 5:18 PM EDT

    Yunel Escobar

    Yunel Escobar had a homer, three doubles and five RBI Wednesday in the Blue Jays’ 8-5 defeat of the Yankees. The final double, which scored two runs in the ninth, came on a ball that Andruw Jones should have caught. He had it in his glove as he attempted the sliding catch, but he lost…

  20. Mike Trout is first rookie with 25 HR, 40 SB

    Aug 29, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    In going deep again Tuesday night, Mike Trout became the 33rd player ever and first rookie to hit 25 homers and steal 40 bases in a season. Trout, who just turned 21 this month, is also the youngest to accomplish the feat. Trout is one of 10 players with 25 HR-40 SB seasons since 2000: Vladimir Guerrero…

    Aug 28, 2012, 6:36 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    July 16: Jose Bautista fouls off a ball in the eighth inning of a game against the Yankees and immediately grabs his left wrist in pain. The Jays announced after the game that no break was found, that he had an injury to a tendon and that he’d undergo an MRI the following day. July…

  22. Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista needs wrist surgery

    Aug 28, 2012, 5:27 PM EDT

    John Farrell, Jose Bautista

    After six weeks on the disabled list Jose Bautista rejoined the Blue Jays’ lineup Friday, only to aggravate his wrist injury one day later and be placed right back on the shelf. And today the team announced that he needs surgery, which will knock Bautista out for the remainder of this season and carries a…

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

    Aug 28, 2012, 6:05 AM EDT

    Tampa Bay Rays v Texas Rangers

    Rangers 6, Rays 5: Adrian Beltre was last week’s player of the week after hitting for the cycle one night and hitting three bombs on another. He’s off to a good start for that award again, going 3 for 3 with a homer a double and four RBI. David Price had one of his worst…

  24. Jose Bautista leaves game after aggravating wrist injury, placed back on disabled list

    Aug 25, 2012, 8:39 PM EDT

    jose bautista getty

    From Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com comes word that Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista was pulled from Saturday night’s game against the Orioles after experiencing more discomfort in his left wrist. Yes, the same wrist that forced him to the disabled list on July 17 and kept him there until August 24. The Blue Jays will…

  25. Chris Davis hits three homers in Orioles’ victory

    Aug 24, 2012, 11:55 PM EDT

    Chris Davis' third home run

    Chris Davis was further phased out of the Rangers’ plans two years ago by the Adrian Beltre signing. Now an Oriole, he watched Wednesday as Beltre hit three homers against his club in a Rangers rout. Davis, though, didn’t take it lying down. He joined Beltre and became the ninth player this year to hit…
