Blue Jays re-activate Dominic Leone and Miguel Montero, designate J.P. Howell and Mike Ohlman

The Blue Jays announced that they have re-activated reliever Dominic Leone from the bereavement list and catcher Miguel Montero from the 10-day disabled list. Montero was placed on the DL on August 3 with a groin strain. To make room on the roster for them, catcher Mike Ohlman and reliever J.P. Howell were designated for assignment. Howell, 34, was signed to a $3-million one-year contract this past offseason after a successful four-year stint with the Dodgers. Howell's 2017 has been a disaster, though, with injuries and bad performances leading him to record a 7.36 ERA in just 11 innings...

Blue Jays DFA J.P. Howell and Mike Ohlman; activate Miguel Montero and Dominic Leone

The Blue Jays announced a series of moves this afternoon, activating Dominic Leone from the bereavement list and Miguel Montero from the disabled list. Montero has been on since August 4th after suffering a strained groin, and made a rehab start last night in Buffalo. In the interim, the catching situation of course became much more dire after Russell Martin went to the DL on August 12th with a strained oblique. This of course necessitated a pair of corresponding moves to make room on the 25-man active roster, and the result was a pair of DFAs. Mike Ohlman was brought up to be the backup...

What are the Blue Jays doing with J.P. Howell?

What are the Blue Jays doing with J.P. Howell?

Suffice to say it's not been a good season when an xFIP of 5.46 is the best stat you can point to for a pitcher. J.P. Howell certainly hasn't been what the Blue Jays were hoping for when they signed him this winter. While that's unfortunate, it's also not a big deal, they hit on Joe Smith and whiffed on Howell, and even a 50% hit rate works out for the team. He hit the disabled list in early June, and started a rehab assignment in Buffalo in early July that had it gone the full 30 days, could have extended into early August. He wasn't terribly successful down there, but after the deadline...

J.P. Howell activated, Brett Oberholtzer selected to replenish Blue Jays’ post-deadline roster

Troy Tulowitzki now in a cast. The Blue Jays have activated reliever J.P. Howell from the disabled list and selected the contract of lefty Brett Oberholtzer from the Bisons in order to replenish their roster after trading Francisco Liriano and Joe Smith at the non-waiver deadline. Howell, who like Smith signed a $3-million one-year deal with Toronto, has only pitched in 8.2 innings for the Blue Jays, giving up 12 hits and 7 walks, leading to 8 earned runs. His last three outings came in blowouts. He has been on the DL with a shoulder ailment twice this year, the latest stint starting in...
