Blue Jays notes: Martin to play third base

Blue Jays notes: Martin to play third base

J.P. Howell activated There is some Blue Jays news today. The big news is Russell Martin will play third base tonight. Yeah, we aren’t the only ones tired of Chris Coghlan’s stylings at third base. I’m not sold on the idea of Martin playing third. First it forces Salty into the lineup. Saltalamacchia isn’t hitting at all. Add in that his defense isn’t what one might call great, and it seems like we are filling one hole, and opening up another one. And, the only good reason for using Salty is to get Russell Martin a day of rest. Now we have found a way to get Salty in the lineup,...

Minors update: T.J. Zeuch outduels Justin Dunn

Minors update: T.J. Zeuch outduels Justin Dunn

Plus J.P. Howell rehabs, Francisco Rios in New Hampshire, and Osman Guterriez/Denis Diaz in Lansing At this time last year, one of the draft eligible players with the most helium was Boston College RHP Justin Dunn. A reliever for most of his first two college seasons and starting his junior season, he moved into the rotation and proved he could maintain his electric stuff over longer outings. As a result, he shot up draft boards, into not only first round consideration but potentially high first round consideration and was one of the more intriguing options to me for the Blue Jays drafting...

Some thoughts on the Blue Jays’ 1-6 start

Some thoughts on the Blue Jays’ 1-6 start

How long will it take the Jays to rebound from their slow start? Well, this certainly isn’t the start Blue Jay fans were looking for. The team’s .565 OPS ranks dead last in all of baseball, they’ve already had to deal with different levels of injuries to J.P. Howell, Roberto Osuna and Josh Donaldson, and they’ve lost all three games they’ve played so far decided by one run. The obvious question now is “how concerned should we be about all of this?” Here’s a few observations about the disappointing start to the season: 1)From a purely mathematical standpoint, a 1-6 start...

Blue Jays: Howell’s injury could be Loup’s opportunity

With J.P. Howell hitting the D.L. with a shoulder issue, Aaron Loup will have an opportunity to step up in a needed role, and also secure his position in the Blue Jays’ bullpen. The Blue Jays haven’t started the 2017 season quite the way they had hoped, but fortunately it’s an awfully long season in […] Blue Jays: Howell’s injury could be Loup’s opportunity - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Monday Bantering: J.P. Howell Placed on 10-Day DL, Leone Recalled

Monday Bantering: J.P. Howell Placed on 10-Day DL, Leone Recalled

Your morning update for everything Blue Jays. J.P. Howell was placed on the 10-day disabled list yesterday, as first reported by Steve Buffery. In a corresponding move, reliever Dominic Leone was, once again, recalled from triple-A Buffalo. Howell, sidelined with a sore shoulder, leaves Aaron Loup as the only remaining left handed reliever in Toronto’s bullpen, highlighting a hole that was already fairly prominent. Leone had just reached Buffalo prior to getting wind of his recall, reports Laura Armstrong of the Toronto Star. “Leone made it all the way to Buffalo just to turn back...

Shoulder problem puts Blue Jays pitcher J.P. Howell on DL

Following the Blue Jays’ 10-8 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field on Friday, Blue Jays reliever J.P. Howell sat inside the visiting team clubhouse staring straight ahead, as if in disbelief.

Jays DL J.P. Howell, Recall Dominic Leone

Jays DL J.P. Howell, Recall Dominic Leone

Dominic Leone looks to be this years Mike McCoy, bouncing back and forth from Buffalo, time after time. This time, he doesn’t have to wait the full ten days, for his recall, because the Jays are putting J.P. Howell on the DL with a left shoulder strain (the sarcastic me wants to call it Crappy Arm Disease, soon there will be a telethon for CAD, it strikes 1 in 3 pitchers at some point in their lifetimefetime). Leone looked very good in his relief appearance, in the game that Francisco Liriano blew up. His reward was a trip to Buffalo. Howell had the very bad inning in the Liriano game,...

Blue Jays could be vulnerable from the left side

After losing Brett Cecil to free agency in the offseason, the Blue Jays will need one or both of J.P. Howell and Aaron Loup to step up and fill his shoes. Let me start by saying that I think it’s foolish to panic after 4 games. We don’t really know what we’re going to get […] Blue Jays could be vulnerable from the left side - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Francisco Liriano & J.P. Howell Implode, Blue Jays Fall 10-8

Francisco Liriano & J.P. Howell Implode, Blue Jays Fall 10-8

Rays 10, Blue Jays 8. That was ugly. I hope we all bet the over. Right-hander Matt Andriese took the mound for the Rays, and started off well by retiring the first two hitters he faced. After surrendering a two-out single to Jose Bautista, Kendrys Morales crushed a ground-rule double over the short wall in left. Troy Tulowitzki, who came into tonight's game without a hit, lined a two-run double down the right field line to complete the two-out rally. Blue Jays 2- Rays 0. Liriano started his evening by walking the leadoff man, and then watched his lead evaporate as Evan Longoria belted a...
