Font (3-3) lasted just one inning while allowing four runs on two hits with two walks and a strikeout as he took the loss Sunday against the Yankees.
Font served as the opener for this game and allowed two first-inning home runs; a solo shot by Aaron Judge and then a three-run bomb by Brett Gardner. Font has had his fair share of struggles against the Yankees this season, posting a 7.45 ERA in just 9.2 innings. Font now owns a 4.50 ERA along with an 89:28 K:BB. He is set to open for the last time this season against the Rays on Saturday.
Font will work as the opener in Sunday's contest against the Yankees, Blue Jays radio play-by-play broadcaster Ben Wagner reports.
Font continues to work in his role as the opener, with Trent Thornton set to serve as the primary pitcher behind him. He's been fairly effective in the role, putting together scoreless outings in seven of his last 10 appearances. Expect Font to work one or two innings before turning the ball over to Thornton.
Font will work as the opener Thursday against the Orioles, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Anthony Kay will work as the primary pitcher. Font has a 4.26 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 37 strikeouts in 31.2 innings as a starter/opener.
Font opened Sunday's 6-4 win over the Yankees, giving up a run on one hit in one inning before primary pitcher T.J. Zeuch replaced him.
The Blue Jays initially listed Zeuch as a traditional starter for the contest, but manager Charlie Montoyo opted to change his plans by the time Toronto released its lineup. Aside from surrendering a solo shot to Aaron Judge, Font worked efficiently in the outing, needing 14 pitches to escape the inning. Font could be used as an opener again when Trent Thornton's turn in the rotation comes up Tuesday in Baltimore.
Font will serve as the Blue Jays' opening pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.
Though he looked like he might exclusively occupy a bullpen role this week with the Blue Jays deciding to use rookie T.J. Zeuch as a traditional starter Tuesday, Font will assume opening duties with manager Charlie Montoyo choosing to deploy Trent Thornton as a primary pitcher for the first time all season. Over his 13 appearances as an opener this season, Font has posted a 4.40 ERA and 34:12 K:BB across 28.2 innings.
Font isn't listed as an opening pitcher for any contest during the Blue Jays' upcoming three-game series with the Red Sox and may work exclusively out of the bullpen this week, Toronto radio play-by-play broadcaster Ben Wagner reports.
Font served as an one-inning opener in T.J. Zeuch's major-league debut last week in Atlanta, but manager Charlie Montoyo will allow the rookie to work as a traditional starter in Tuesday's series opener. The other four rotation members scheduled to follow Zeuch this week -- Trent Thornton, Clay Buchholz, Anthony Kay and Jacob Waguespack -- all worked in starting roles in their most recent outings, so expect Montoyo to deploy them in that capacity again. The Blue Jays' decision to use Font against three hitters out of the bullpen Sunday in Tampa Bay adds further credence to the notion that he won't be opening any games in the near future.
Font (3-4) was handed the loss after giving up two runs on four hits and striking out a batter in his lone inning Tuesday against the Braves.
Font ran into a trouble right away, allowing a leadoff triple to Ronald Acuna followed by a single, double and another base hit. He recovered nicely to induce a double play and inning-ending strikeout, but the Blue Jays were unable to dig out of the early hole he put them in. While he wasn't at his best Tuesday, Font should still continue to see usage as an opener thanks to his generally strong body of work since he was acquired from the Mets on July 17. Over 14 outings (10 "starts"), Font has posted a 3.08 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 37 strikeouts in 26.1 innings.
Font is scheduled to serve as the opener Tuesday against the Braves, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Font has impressed across 13 appearances since joining the Blue Jays, posting a 2.49 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 36:7 K:BB in 25.1 innings. His last nine appearances have come as an opener, with the right-hander recording no more than seven outs in any of those outings. T.J. Zeuch will follow Font as the bulk reliever.
Font is scheduled to open Sunday's game against the Astros, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Font owns a 2.70 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 33:6 K:BB across 23.1 innings since joining the Blue Jays. He hasn't pitched more than two innings in any of his last six appearances, so he'll likely be in line for an inning or two of work Sunday before giving way to either Zack Godley or Sam Gaviglio.
Font will be the opener Tuesday against the Braves, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
Font has been quite good since joining the Blue Jays, tossing 21.1 innings with a 2.95 ERA and a 33.3 percent strikeout rate. That's only been enough to lower his career ERA (in 117.1 big-league innings) to 5.45. Zack Godley will follow Font as the primary pitcher.
Font pitched one inning, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out one in Saturday's 7-5 win over the Mariners.
It wasn't exactly a tone-setting performance for Font, who was dinged for a two-run single by Kyle Seager, but the Blue Jays tied the game in the third inning to get the 29-year-old off the hook. Font has pitched to a 4.48 ERA and 71:24 K:BB in 66.1 innings between three teams this season. He should continue to split time between middle relief and the opener role going forward.
Font will serve as the Blue Jays' opening pitcher for Saturday's game against the Mariners.
The Blue Jays are expected to limit Font to two innings, as has been the case in all but one of his six turns as an opener for Toronto this season. The big club is expected to bring up Brock Stewart from Triple-A Buffalo to serve as the primary pitcher behind Font, who has posted a 2.21 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 28:5 K:BB in 20.1 innings since being acquired from the Mets in mid-July.
Font threw two scoreless innings as the opener against the Dodgers on Wednesday, giving up one hit, recording four stirkeouts and issuing two walks as the Blue Jays eventually fell 2-1.
Font continues to thrive in the opener role, as he's now yielded just two earned runs over his last 17.1 innings, lowering his ERA from 5.85 to 4.27 over that stretch. He's certainly pitched well since arriving to the Blue Jays, but as long as he remains in his current role, he carries little fantasy value.
Font will serve as the Blue Jays' opening pitcher in Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.
Manager Charlie Montoyo plans to treat the contest as a bullpen game, so Font will likely work only 2-to-3 innings before turning the game over the Jays' relief crew. Font has been dominant over his last six outings with Toronto, covering 12.1 scoreless frames while posting a 16:2 K:BB and a 0.89 WHIP.
Font (2-1) took the loss after surrendering one run on three hits while striking out three over two innings Sunday against the Mariners.
Font worked as the opening pitcher in the series finale, but he was handed the loss after allowing a solo homer in the second inning. The 29-year-old had posted five straight scoreless outings prior to Sunday, though his ERA jumped from 3.86 to 4.41 (63.1 innings) following his most recent performance.
Font will work as an opener Sunday against the Mariners, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Font has served as an opener in four straight outings and has a 12:2 K:BB over 8.1 innings during that stretch. The 29-year-old has pitched well since joining Toronto in mid-July with a 2.20 ERA and 0.92 WHIP across 16.1 innings.
Font gave up one hit and two walks over two scoreless innings while striking out two in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.
Working as the opener for the fourth straight appearance, Font got the Jays headed toward a combined shutout while extending his personal scoreless streak to 12.1 innings. The right-hander now boasts a 2.20 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 21:3 K:BB through 16.1 frames since coming to Toronto, but his role as either a multi-inning opener or long reliever makes it difficult for him to pick up wins, saves or holds and puts a firm cap on his fantasy value.
Font will serve as the opener for Tuesday's game against the Rangers, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The Blue Jays will count on Font to fire the first inning or so before handing the ball to Thomas Pannone, who's slated to work as the primary pitcher. Font owns a 4.55 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with a 61:19 K:BB over 59.1 innings this season with Toronto.
Font will serve as the opener Wednesday against the Rays, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.
Font is expected to pitch two innings before giving way to Brock Stewart, who will serve as the primary pitcher Wednesday. In five appearances since being acquired by the Blue Jays, Font owns a 3.60 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 11:1 K:BB in 10 innings.
Font will start Friday's game at Baltimore, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Font was acquired by the Blue Jays in mid-July and is primed to make his first start for his new team. The 29-year-old threw 43 pitches over two scoreless frames Tuesday, so he's unlikely to have the workload of a traditional starter. Font has a 5.09 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 51:19 K:BB through 53 innings this season.
