Monday Bantering: Today’s lineup and spring notes

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports The Blue Jays are playing in Dunedin against the Pirates. One would think that the first game in the redone ballpark would be something that they would want to show us on one of the 258 sports channels. They should be making a big deal out of this. If you have MLB.tv the game is being broadcast by the Pirates radio team. I think I’ll listen in just hear how Nate Pearson does. Bob Rae gets the start. Santiago Espinal, 2B Joe Panik, 3B Rowdy Tellez, 1B Alejandro Kirk, C Breyvic Valera, CF Danny Jansen, DH Forrest Wall, LF Austin Martin,...

Better know your Blue Jays 40-man: Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

Better know your Blue Jays 40-man: Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Heck, I think we know Vladimir Guerrero Jr. well enough. We know his weight, how much he works out, how much he likes his grandmother’s cooking, how he’s not set the world on first the way we hoped he would, how he doesn’t get enough launch angle, how hard he hits that ball. We’ve talked/argued about him playing first base or third base or DH. We’ve talked about whether he is a disappointment or not. Some think that a guy who is still 21 (until the end of April) and has been a better-than-average hitter can’t be a...

Top 60 All-Time Blue Jays: #29 Aaron Hill

Top 60 All-Time Blue Jays: #29 Aaron Hill

This is the way I remember Aaron. | Photo by Otto Greule Jr/ Aaron Walter Hill | 2B | 2005 - 2011 So somehow I skipped Aaron, so here he is at 29th, and I’ve moved Stewart, Mulliniks, and Gruber up a spot. Sorry, Aaron. Aaron Hill had a 13-year MLB career, the first six and a half seasons with the Blue Jays. He was our first-round draft pick (13th overall) in 2003. He turned out to be one of the better first-round picks in that draft. Of the 12 guys picked in front of him, only Mick Markakis (33.0) had a higher bWAR than Hill’s 24.4, and the only other...

Toronto Blue Jays: Don’t sleep on Anthony Kay for 2021

He may end up starting his season in Triple-A, but don’t be surprised if Anthony Kay ends up being an important figure in the Blue Jays rotation. As of right now, the southpaw likely figures to be on the outside looking in for the rotation to start the season, but I’d be willing to wager […] Toronto Blue Jays: Don’t sleep on Anthony Kay for 2021 - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Toronto Blue Jays acquire pitcher Travis Bergen once again

The Toronto Blue Jays have reportedly acquired pitcher Travis Bergen from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for cash considerations. In order to free up a spot on the 40-man roster, the Blue Jays shifted Patrick Murphy to the injured reserve.

Takeaways and analysis of the Toronto Blue Jays first spring training game

Blue Jays Regulars put the Pressure on Early In the first inning, the Toronto Blue Jays were able to load the bases and immediately put pressure on the Yankees. After a Cavan Biggio pop fly, Marcus Semien would put a drop shot into shallow right field that Aaron Judge was unable to corral, with Bo […] Takeaways and analysis of the Toronto Blue Jays first spring training game - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Blue Jays: Rowdy Tellez won’t be denied at-bats in 2021

If everyone stays healthy, the Blue Jays have more starting calibre players than lineup spots. Regardless, Rowdy Tellez will find a way to be a regular. He’s going to have a battle for playing time on his hands this year, in part because of the depth of the Blue Jays roster, but also because of […] Blue Jays: Rowdy Tellez won’t be denied at-bats in 2021 - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Jays trade for Travis Bergen

Jays trade for Travis Bergen

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports The Blue Jays traded ‘cash considerations’ to the Diamondbacks to get 27-year-old, LHP Travis Bergen back. You’ll remember that they Jays traded him to Arizona for Robbie Ray last August. Before that the Giants picked him up from us in the Rule 5 draft, in 2019, and then returned him in August of that year. Patrick Murphy was put on the 60-day IL, with a sprained A/C joint, to make roster room for Travis. I’m sad to hear that about Murphy, I was hoping he would get a shot to make the bullpen. Bergen has pitched in 29 games over the...

Quick spring recap: Jays beat Yankees

Quick spring recap: Jays beat Yankees

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Blue Jays 6 Yankees 4 (7 innings) I really enjoyed getting to see baseball again. I didn’t enjoy the YES broadcast team interviewing bored Yankees, instead of showing us the game. Jays who impressed: Anthony Kay looked very good in his two perfect innings, getting 2 strikeouts. GameDay said his fastball was mid-90s, topping at 97. T.J. Zeuch had a good inning and a less good inning. Allowing a run in his two innings. Anthony Castro looked good, getting the last two outs of the fifth after Jake Waguespack had some troubles. Joel Murray...

Toronto Blue Jays Trade Target: German Marquez

The Blue Jays are in need of another starting pitcher. With the season vastly approaching, there is a lack of big names in the free-agent market.

First game of spring Bantering

First game of spring Bantering

Handout Photo-USA TODAY Sports We have the first game real fake baseball of spring today and it is on TV. Apparently, the Yankees are letting 3000 fans into the park today. It seems nuts to me, but the Yankees want to squeeze every dollar out of Florida they can, health be damned. They are only playing 7 innings today, I have the feeling most of the spring games will be like that. The Blue Jays made a roster move before the game Breyvic Valera has been moved from the restricted list to the 40-man. We are up to a full 40-man now. I really can’t imagine Valera making...
