Blue Jays' Cesar Valdez: Heads to DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdez was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder impingement, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

This could help explain Valdez's struggles during his most recent start, as he was lit up for six runs in 3.1 innings. There is no estimated return date for him at this point, and it remains unclear whether he will rejoin the starting rotation when he does return given his unsightly 10.32 ERA over his previous three starts. Leonel Campos was recalled from Triple-A to take his place on the roster, though his replacement in the rotation has yet to be named.

Blue Jays' Cesar Valdez: Hits DL with shoulder issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdez was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a right shoulder impingement, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

After impressing in his initial start with the Blue Jays on July 25, tossing six innings of one-run ball, Valdez failed to get out of the fourth inning in his subsequent two turns, yielding a combined 13 runs (12 earned) over 5.1 frames. The shoulder issue may have factored into Valdez's back-to-back poor outings, but that won't necessarily earn him another look in the rotation once he eventually regains health. In the meantime, the Blue Jays will have to sift through their pool of minor-league starters to find a rotation replacement for Valdez, who was initially on track to pitch Wednesday against the Yankees.

Blue Jays' Cesar Valdez: Crushed by Astros on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdez (1-1) coughed up six runs on six hits and two walks over 3.1 innings in Friday's 16-7 loss to the Astros. He struck out one.

The right-hander was hardly alone in his struggles on the night -- Houston's offense scored at least one run against every Toronto pitcher it faced, and homered off five of the six -- but Valdez has now had two awful starts in a row, leaving him with a 7.63 ERA and putting his spot in the Jays rotation in serious jeopardy. If the team doesn't make a move to replace him, his next trip to the mound would come Wednesday at home against another potent offense in the Yankees.

Blue Jays' Cesar Valdez: Slated for another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdez is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Astros, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

Francisco Liriano was recently traded to Houston, providing an opportunity for Valdez to stick in the Blue Jays' starting rotation for the time being. He was lit up for seven runs (six earned) in two innings during his last outing, so it could be a good chance to stack Houston hitters against him.

Blue Jays' Cesar Valdez: Kicked around for seven runs Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valdez was shelled in Sunday's start against the Angels, as he allowed seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and a walk in two innings of work. He also struck out two. He didn't factor into the decision.

Valdez did pitch in the third inning, although he failed to record an out in six batters and was promptly removed from the contest. The 32-year-old required 51 pitched to complete the two frames, and even just 33 of those went for strikes. Amazingly, he didn't take the loss due to a seven-run outburst in the bottom of the ninth by the Blue Jays. Despite that, his ERA now sits at a lofty 6.59 mark on the season, making him fairly unattractive even if he does hold a rotation spot. If Aaron Sanchez (finger) is unable to return from the DL, Valdez could remain in the rotation and make his next scheduled start Saturday in Houston.
