Jays Crush Reds

17 to 2 win for the Jays. Reds 2 Blue Jays 17 (or so, I quit counting) We’ve been waiting for a drama free game, and we got it. So I’m not really going recap that.

Blue Jays Roster Moves: Sanchez to DL and more

And more... There are lots of little bits of Blue Jays news: Aaron Sanchez is going back on the DL with a 'middle finger laceration (fancy word for a cut). I'm hating this season. The Jays have called up right-handed reliever Cesar Valdez. Valdez has a 3.00 ERA in 9 innings for the Bisons. He’s allowed 5 hits, 1 walk, with 2 strikeouts. We picked him up off waivers from the A’s, back on May 5. As Matt posted, the Jays are going to activate Russell Martin today, he’ll be catching tonight. Mike Ohlman has been DFAed to make room for Valdez.. I know some of us were hopeful that the...

The Blue Jays face several important roster decisions this week

The return of Tulo, Donaldson and Martin is a time for celebration, but it’s also a time for decision making. The Blue Jays roster could look quite different by this time next week. With Troy Tulowitzki, Josh Donaldson and Russell Martin all due off the DL during the upcoming road trip and multiple off days around the corner, the front office is going to have an opportunity to shuffle and manipulate the 25-man roster. First off, let’s take a look at the roster as it stands now: Starting Pitchers (5) Marco Estrada Marcus Stroman Aaron Sanchez Joe Biagini Mike Bolsinger Relief...

Tuesday Bantering: Steve Pearce placed on DL

Your morning update for everything Blue Jays. The Blue Jays placed Steve Pearce on the 10-day disabled list with a right calf strain, recalling Leonel Campos, a reliever, to fill his spot on the 25-man roster. Pearce initially left Sunday’s game after a double in the second inning, and now joins Josh Donaldson, Troy Tulowitzki, Russell Martin, J.A. Happ and Francisco Liriano on the disabled list. Pearce, although starting the season slow, reached his stride prior to the injury. In May, Pearce has played in 10 games, hitting four home runs, two doubles and collecting nine RBIs. He had an...

The Blue Jays need Russell Martin to get healthy and stay healthy

The Blue Jays need Russell Martin to get healthy and stay healthy

The Blue Jays have won five in a row without Russell Martin, but they can’t survive without him for long. The Disabled List is dangerously long in Toronto. It includes an MVP candidate at third base, two key members of the rotation, a five time All-Star shortstop, and the team’s best speed weapon in Dalton Pompey. However, of all the pieces this team is currently missing, Russell Martin might be the most problematic. Of course that’s not completely true. Russell Martin’s injury isn’t considered serious. He went on the DL on May 8 with nerve inflammation in his left shoulder and...

AL East: Russell Martin heads to DL for Toronto

Check out everything going on in the American League East. Another Blue Jays player heads to the DL this season. Catcher Russell Martin has gone down with nerve inflammation that has apparently been bothering him since the beginning on the season. Mike Ohlman has been called up to take Martin’s place behind the plate. This lingering nerve issue could lend itself to why Martin started off the season in such a rut. There’s no timeline set for Martin’s return. Here’s what else is going on in the American League East: Zach Britton is expected to be out for up to two months. Womp...
