  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Nearing throwing progression

    Mayza (forearm) will play catch Saturday or Sunday, Arden Zwelling of reports.

    Mayza has been shut down for a week due to left forearm inflammation, but he underwent a second MRI on Friday that came back clean. It's not yet clear when the southpaw will be able to resume mound work, but it's encouraging that he's been cleared to play catch following his shutdown.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: MRI comes back clean

    Mayza's MRI on his left forearm came back clean Friday, Shi Davidi of reports.

    When Mayza sought a second opinion, it appeared to be ominous news, but he and the Blue Jays both maintained that they were optimistic about his prognosis. That optimism now appears warranted. He'll be reassessed Sunday and could start throwing early next week if all goes well.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Getting second opinion

    Mayza is set to receive a second opinion on his inflamed left forearm later this week and remains optimistic that he'll spend close to the minimum amount of time on the 15-day injured list, Shi Davidi of reports.

    When players seek a second opinion, it's often an indication that the first one didn't provide a favorable prognosis, but manager Charlie Montoyo suggested that isn't the case for Mayza. Instead, Mayza's initial MRI has apparently turned up favorable results, but the right-hander will still get another checkup just to ensure he's not dealing with a more serious injury. Before the injury surfaced, Mayza had been the top setup man for closer Jordan Romano (illness) this season, logging seven holds and a 2.08 ERA through his first 15 appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Shelved with forearm injury

    The Blue Jays placed Mayza on the 15-day injured list Monday with left forearm inflammation.

    Mayza has been one of baseball's under-the-radar standout setup man this season, accruing seven holds across 15 appearances while submitting a 2.08 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 13:2 K:BB in 13 innings. He'll be sidelined until at least May 30 with the injury, though the fact that the Blue Jays are labeling his injury as inflammation rather than a strain bodes well for his chances of avoiding an extended absence. Mayza is scheduled to undergo an MRI later this week, which should give the Blue Jays more certainty regarding whether he's dealing with any damage to his forearm beyond the inflammation, according to Keegan Matheson of

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Nabs win Friday

    Mayza (1-0) picked up the win Friday against the Astros, striking out two over a perfect inning of relief.

    He breezed through the heart of the Houston lineup on 14 pitches (10 strikes) in the bottom of the eighth inning with the score tied 3-3, and the Blue Jays rewarded the lefty by plating the winning run in the top of the ninth. Mayza has established himself as a key late-inning reliever for Toronto so far, posting a 1.59 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 6:0 K:BB with three holds in addition to Friday's win over seven appearances and 5.2 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Collects third hold

    Mayza struck out two over 1.1 perfect innings Sunday to record his third hold of the season in a win over the A's.

    The southpaw took over for Alek Manoah to begin the seventh inning and needed only 13 pitches (10 strikes) to rack up his four outs. Mayza is the top lefty in the Blue Jays' bullpen and has been sharp to begin the season, posting a 2.25 ERA, 0.50 WHIP and 4:0 K:BB through four innings over five appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Ready for key setup role

    Mayza gave up one hit and struck out two in a scoreless inning during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees.

    Not that it means a lot to work the ninth inning in a spring game, but Mayza did get credit for a save as he faced a handful of Yankees minor-leaguers plus journeyman depth catcher David Freitas. After posting a career-high 18 holds, a 0.98 WHIP and a solid 27.1 percent strikeout rate in 53 innings for the Blue Jays last season in his return from Tommy John surgery, Mayza figures to be the team's top left-handed option out of the bullpen in 2022.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Earns fifth win

    Mayza (5-2) earned the win Wednesday over Baltimore. He walked one in a scoreless inning.

    The southpaw pitched the eighth inning and kept the game tied at 4-4 before Toronto took the lead in its half of the frame. Mayza has found success in high-leverage situations, allowing just four runs in 18.1 innings while posting a 20:4 K:BB and five holds since the start of July. He has a 3.56 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 43:10 K:BB with 13 holds and one save through 43 innings overall.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Picks up first career save

    Mayza allowed one hit in 1.1 innings to earn the save in Sunday's 2-1 win over Detroit.

    Toronto's regular closer, Jordan Romano, covered two innings to earn the win Saturday, opening the door for Mayza to notch his first major-league save. The 29-year-old southpaw was never in any real danger of giving up the one-run lead. He's pitched to a solid 3.64 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 43:9 K:BB across 42 innings this year. He's added a 4-2 record, 13 holds and two blown saves, typically operating in high-leverage situations.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Picks up fourth win

    Mayza (4-1) struck out two in a perfect inning, earning the win Wednesday over the White Sox.

    The left-hander kept the game tied in the top of the eighth inning, and Toronto took the lead in the bottom half of the frame. Mayza has allowed one run on a hit and a hit batter across 3.2 innings since he returned from a bout of elbow inflammation. The 29-year-old sports a 3.63 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 42:9 K:BB across 39.2 innings while adding 13 holds and two blown saves in a fairly high-leverage role.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Returns from IL

    The Blue Jays reinstated Mayza (elbow) from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Toronto cleared a spot for Mayza in the bullpen and on the 26-man active roster by designating reliever Rafael Dolis for assignment. Mayza was sidelined for the minimum amount of time with left elbow inflammation, so the Blue Jays shouldn't have much hesitation about moving him back into a high-leverage role right away. Before going on the IL, Mayza posted a 1.21 ERA and 0.67 WHIP while collecting 10 holds dating back to June 1.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Likely to be activated Wednesday

    Manager Charlie Montoyo said there is a "good chance" Mayza (elbow) will be activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Wednesday's game against the Nationals, Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports.

    Mayza was placed on the injured list Aug. 7 with elbow inflammation, but he was able to return to the mound for a rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday. It sounds like he's on track to rejoin the Blue Jays' bullpen after just the one rehab outing, though a roster move won't become official until Wednesday.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Makes rehab appearance

    Mayza (elbow) felt good after he made a rehab appearance at Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, Mitch Bannon of reports.

    Mayza's rehab appearance was his first since he was placed on the 10-day IL with left elbow inflammation Aug. 7, and he allowed a run on one hit in a relief inning during Sunday's minor-league contest. Manager Charlie Montoyo said the southpaw has a "good chance" to return during the Blue Jays' upcoming series in Washington, which begins Tuesday, Gregor Chisholm of the Toronto Star reports.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Lands on injured list

    Mayza was placed on the 10-day injured list with left elbow inflammation Saturday.

    Mayza tossed a scoreless inning against Cleveland on Thursday to earn his 12th hold of the season. However, he'll spend some time on the shelf due to his elbow injury. The Blue Jays reportedly aren't too concerned about the issue, and they're hopeful Mayza will return after a brief absence, Scott Mitchell of reports. Right-hander Patrick Murphy and left-hander Kirby Snead were among the pitchers who were recalled to take his place in the bullpen.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Collects second win

    Mayza (2-1) picked up the win in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over the Marlins, striking out two batters in a perfect eighth inning.

    The southpaw entered with the score tied 1-1 and needed only eight pitches (seven strikes) to breeze through Miami's 8-9-1 hitters. Mayza then got rewarded when Toronto pushed across a run in the ninth. The 29-year-old has been the Jays' top lefty in the bullpen while Ryan Borucki (forearm) has been on the shelf, and Mayza's responded to that high-leverage usage with a 1.17 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 7:1 K:BB through 7.2 innings in June.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Picks up win Sunday

    Mayza (1-0) allowed no runs on two hits and no walks in one-third of an inning to earn the win against the Rays on Sunday.

    Mayza entered Sunday's game in the fourth inning after Hyun Jin Ryu (glute) was removed from the contest early, and he picked up his first win of the year as the Blue Jays scored the lone run of the game in the top of the fifth. The left-hander has made nine relief appearances to begin the year and has struck out seven in six scoreless frames.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Collects first hold

    Mayza gave up a hit and struck out one in two-thirds of an inning to record his first hold of the season in Wednesday's win over the Red Sox.

    The southpaw started the ninth inning in position for a save with the Jays up by three, but after facing the minimum three batters and getting two of them out, Mayza gave way to Anthony Castro with J.D. Martinez coming to the plate. Mayza has looked sharp to begin the season, giving up no runs in five innings over seven appearances with a 6:0 K:BB, which has earned him a spot in manager Charlie Montoyo's high-leverage crew.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Secures spot on Opening Day roster

    Mayza was informed by the Blue Jays on Sunday that he made the Opening Day roster, Scott Mitchell of reports.

    The 29-year-old was in camp as a non-roster invitee, but he impressed during spring training with one hit allowed and a 6:2 K:BB over 6.2 innings. Mayza last pitched in the majors during 2019 when he posted a 4.91 ERA, and he figures to fill a middle-relief role early on for Toronto.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Looking good for roster spot

    Mayza appears to have an inside track at winning a spot in the Blue Jays' Opening Day bullpen, Gregor Chisholm of the Toronto Star reports.

    Mayza's status as a non-roster invitee appeared to give him long odds to break camp with the big club at the onset of spring training, but he's been one of the Jays' most impressive relievers so far in the Grapefruit League. Through six appearances, Mayza has tossed 5.1 shutout innings, permitting only one hit and two walks while striking out five. Mayza's emergence could keep fellow lefty reliever Francisco Liriano -- who is also attending camp as a non-roster invitee -- on the outside looking in for a spot in the bullpen.

  • Blue Jays' Tim Mayza: Feeling good after bullpens

    Mayza (elbow) is feeling good after throwing bullpens and live batting practice sessions, Keegan Matheson of reports.

    Mayza is almost fully recovered from Tommy John surgery, a procedure he underwent back in September of 2019. He's yet to throw on back-to-back days, but he should have time to fully build up by Opening Day. He's only in camp as a non-roster invitee, however, so he may open in the minors even if he proves his health.
