Monday Bantering: Espinal Bats Second

Kevin Sousa-USA TODAY Sports There is a change in the Blue Jays lineup tonight. Santiago Espinal is batting second. That puts Vlad third, Bo fourth and Teoscar fifth. I’m ok with it. But if the don’t start hitting, the batting order really doesn’t matter.

Votto Drives in 3, Reds Beat Jays

Votto Drives in 3, Reds Beat Jays

Chapman practicing the superhero landing. | Kevin Sousa-USA TODAY Sports Reds 3 Blue Jays 2 It would be nice to score more than 2 runs someday. But then it is hard to score more than 2 runs when you only get 4 hits on the day. And no hits after the fourth inning. The Jays got a run in the: Second inning: Santiago Espinal led off with a double (our only extra-base hit of the day), and Matt Chapman singled him home. After that, it was three strikeouts from Danny Jansen, Zack Collins and Raimel Tapia. Third inning: George Springer was hit by pitch, went to second on a...

Blue Jays: Prospect Ricky Tiedemann might be the steal of the 2021 draft

Last season, the Blue Jays only had two picks within the first three rounds, as the club lost their second-round selection as compensation for signing George Springer to a long-term contract during the 2020/2021 offseason. The Jays used their first-round pick on right-hander Gunnar Hoglund, who fell to the Blue Jays at #19 after undergoing […] Blue Jays: Prospect Ricky Tiedemann might be the steal of the 2021 draft - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

The Blue Jays need to find the bats this weekend against the Reds

It is no secret that the Toronto Blue Jays bats have not lived up to expectations so far this season. Boasting some of the hottest hitters in baseball like Bo Bichette, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., George Springer, and Teoscar Hernandez, the Jays club finds themselves ranked 15th in batting average (.234), 17th in OPS (.678), and […] The Blue Jays need to find the bats this weekend against the Reds - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Blue Jays: Trading for first baseman Josh Bell makes a lot of sense

Heading into last night’s game against the Seattle Mariners, the Toronto Blue Jays were collectively hitting to a .302 wOBA (20th in the league) and a 97 wRC+ (17th). Considering the club boasts some of the best bats in the league in Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette, George Springer, and Teoscar Hernandez, it is a […] Blue Jays: Trading for first baseman Josh Bell makes a lot of sense - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Photo by Cole Burston/ We have a win streak going. I’m out this afternoon but should be back for game time. In case I’m not, I’m putting the GameThread together early. There is a bit of news: Jordan Romano has a gastrointestinal infection. He’s taking antibiotics and ‘is on the mend’. And Tim Mayza is having a ‘follow up’ tonight out of an abundance of caution, but they feel his inflammation is in his forearm and not structural.

Game #34 GameThread: Springer’s Back

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports So there is good news, George Springer is back in the lineup today. DHing, but it is a start. I’m glad the injury wasn’t as bad it looked Friday. And Vlad is back in the second spot, Teo third and Bo cleanup. Jansen gets the day off. I’m ok with them being careful with him for a bit.

Blue Jays: It’s time to move Vladimir Guerrero Jr. up in the order

The Blue Jays offence has been floundering lately and could use a shake up in general, but George Springer’s injury on Friday may force one. If I’m Charlie Montoyo, one of the first things I would do is move Vladimir Guerrero Jr. up in the order. You could have made a strong argument in favour […] Blue Jays: It’s time to move Vladimir Guerrero Jr. up in the order - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Jays Lose Game and Springer

Jays Lose Game and Springer

Photo by Mike Ehrmann/ Blue Jays 2 Rays 5 I hate Tropicana. I don’t know if George Springer lost that ball in the stupid roof, but he didn’t look comfortable backing up for the ball and then made an unnecessary jump for the ball, coming down awkwardly. The Jays are saying it is a sprained ankle, which could be minor or not minor. Hopefully, he won’t be out long. Anyway, that play, in the second inning, got the Rays their first run. It turned into a triple For Brandon Lowe. And he scored on a ground ball, fielder’s choice, hit to Bo Bichette, but it was hit too...

Blue Jays clearly didn’t learn from Teoscar Hernandez’s injury

George Springer suffered another injury in the second inning of Friday’s game, and the Blue Jays clearly didn’t learn from a similar situation that happened earlier in the year. Teoscar Hernandez spent time on the Injured List back in April, and I can’t help but wonder if his absence could have been avoided, or at […] Blue Jays clearly didn’t learn from Teoscar Hernandez’s injury - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

George Springer Leaves Game with Apparent Leg Injury

George Springer Leaves Game with Apparent Leg Injury

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ George Springer left tonight’s game in Tampa Bay, in the third inning, with a leg injury of some sort. In the top of the third, Springer made an awkward jump for a ball in deep center. He was a few feet in front of the wall and likely didn’t need to jump, but perhaps he lost the ball in the stupid Tropicana roof. He stayed in to bat in the bottom of the inning, but Ramiel Tapia took his spot in center in the bottom of the inning. Hopefully, it won’t be anything serious. He seemed to be able to put weight on the foot. Might be an ankle issue.

Blue Jays: George Springer’s advice hits the nail on the head

The Blue Jays have hit the skids recently by going 3-7 over their last 10 games to begin the month of May, but their star centre fielder has some sound advice to share with his young teammates.

Offense Still Missing, Jays Lose to Guardians

Photo by Ron Schwane/ Blue Jays 3 Guardians 4 If you continuously play these close games, you will lose some of them. They are putting way too much pressure on the bullpen. The game started nicely. We scored two in the first. George Springer led off with a double. Bo Bichette walked, and Vladimir Guerrero singled to load the bases. Then Teoscar Hernandez singled home two. Still no outs, two on. We were hoping for a big inning. But no. Lourdes Gurriel ground out. Alejandro Kirk walked to load the bases again. But Matt Chapman struck out (which would become a theme, he...
