      Blue Jays' Steve Delabar: Avoid arbitration

      Delabar and the Blue Jays agreed to terms on a one-year, $835,000 deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports. Delabar split last season between Triple-A and Toronto, posting a 5.22 ERA while going 2-0 in 31 appearances for the Blue Jays. The veteran will likely enter a similar situation in 2016, as he attempts to earn his way into a more permanent major league role.

      Blue Jays backing off Cecil as closer, going to committee approach

      Blue Jays manager John Gibbons made the announcement Tuesday he was removing Brett Cecil from the role as full-time closer and going to a committee approach. Gibbons said Cecil is getting backed off as closer to "get him right." "He's just not sharp right now," Gibbons said. Gibbons added Steve Delabar would be used as the closer Tuesday against the Rays, but also said Roberto Osuna will be in the mix for saves moving forward. Osuna was unavailable Tuesday after recording a two-inning save Monday. Gibbons spoke favorable of Osuna on Tuesday, adding he has the stuff, makeup and toughness to close games. However, he added Osuna might be needed before the ninth inning, which is why he is not being named the new closer.

      Jays option Delabar, increase chances of Osuna, Castro making 'pen

      The Blue Jays announced Tuesday they optioned reliever Steve Delabar to minor-league camp. Delabar -- who had a 3.86 ERA, one save, nine strikeouts and one walk in seven spring innings -- said he was shocked by the move, per the National Post. "They told me that some other guys have stepped up. I'm assuming it's some of the younger guys," he said. Manager John Gibbons didn't hold back in his assessment of Delabar's spring performance. "I'm glad he's pissed off," Gibbons said. "He should be pissed off. Why wouldn't he be? We're all pissed off. We wanted him on the team. "We need a multiple-inning guy. He's basically right now a one-inning pitcher. That's what it came down to." Delabar's demotion could pave the way for Roberto Osuna and Miguel Castro to make the Opening Day roster. Both players have been impressive in camp. Castro has tossed nine scoreless innings, while striking out eight and not issuing a walk. Osuna also hasn't allowed a run in 9 2/3 innings, while striking out eight and walking two.
