Blue Jays' John Axford: Returns from bereavement list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford was activated from the bereavement list Friday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

The 35-year-old has a 2.70 ERA in 10 innings for the Blue Jays so far this year, though his 4.47 xFIP indicates that he's lucky to be allowing so few runs. Tim Mayza was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move.

Blue Jays' John Axford: Earns spot on Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jaysselected Axford's contract from the minors, indicating he has cracked the team's Opening Day roster.

Axford impressed manager John Gibbons and Toronto's front office during spring training and will be utilized in a low-leverage relief role for the team this season. During 22 games with Oakland last year, Axford logged a 6.43 ERA and 2.10 WHIP over 21 innings.

Blue Jays' John Axford: Earns praise from manager
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford "should be pitching in the big-leagues, no doubt," according to manager John Gibbons, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Axford is in camp with the Blue Jays on a minor-league deal. He wasn't considered a favorite to earn a bullpen role, as he posted an ugly 6.43 ERA in 21 innings last season with Oakland and hasn't put up an ERA below 3.95 since 2011. The Blue Jays aren't stacked with experienced relief arms, so he certainly has a chance to make the team, though it's hard to imagine him being a significant fantasy asset.

Blue Jays' John Axford: Picked up by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford agreed to a minor-league deal with the Blue Jays on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Axford will look to resurrect his career north of the border after being cut loose by the A's this past season. Axford was once a high-profile closer in his prime but has been no more than a middling reliever over the past several years. The 34-year-old tossed just 21 big-league innings last season, posting a 6.43 ERA and concerning 15.6 percent walk rate with the A's. He'll likely be utilized in lower-leverage situations if he's able to play his way onto the Opening Day roster with a strong spring training performance.
