Osuna struck out two in a clean frame to cap off Tuesday's victory in Game 4 of the ALCS against the Indians.
Taking no chances, manager John Gibbons brought in Osuna, his closer, in a non-save situation to finish off the Indians. He remains perfect through six appearances this postseason, picking up a win and a save while striking out nine in six appearances (eight innings).
The surprise ace of the staff delivered a quality outing in the most important start of his short career. Down 3-0, Sanchez kept the series (and the season) alive for the Jays. The AL's ERA champion finished his outing with three perfect innings to outduel Indians ace Corey Kluber. Sanchez isn't scheduled to pitch the rest of the series, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see him work out of the bullpen if the team can extend the ALCS to a Game 7.
Benoit (calf) is not using crutches anymore and threw on flat ground Monday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.
This is a good sign for the veteran reliever, as it seems he's able to put a good amount of weight on the calf less than month after injuring it. The Blue Jays have not ruled Benoit out for the duration of the playoffs, so if the Blue Jays qualify for the World Series and the right-hander builds up enough strength by the end of the month, he could find his way back into the Toronto bullpen before the postseason's end.
Travis has been dealing with a knee bruise since the beginning of the postseason and was finally sent for an MRI on Saturday. The results revealed a bone bruise, as expected, but also that there is a small flap of cartilage caught in the joint. As a result, Travis will undergo a minor procedure to correct the issue, but provided the surgery happens in the near future, it shouldn't greatly affect his 2017 availability.
