Oh (illness) will be available out of the bullpen Wednesday, Mike Wilner of BlueJaysTalk report.
Oh wasn't able to pitch during Tuesday's game to due flu-like symptoms. Across 40 appearances this year, he's posted a 3.20 ERA and 1.12 WHIP.
Oh (flu-like symptoms) was not available in Tuesday's game against the Mets, the Associated Press reports.
Tyler Clippard came in to get one out and record his sixth save in 10 tries, so there isn't much clarity as to whether Oh will get saves once healthy. He should be considered day-to-day, and Clippard should be considered the slight favorite to get saves until Aug. 5, when Roberto Osuna (suspension) reclaims the job.
Oh pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn the win Saturday against the Tigers. He struck out one and allowed one hit.
Oh entered with the game tied and kept it that way, leaving him as the pitcher of record when Justin Smoak launched a walkoff homer. From a usage perspective, it's notable that Oh was called upon in a tie game with Roberto Osuna suspended and Ryan Tepera (elbow) on the disabled list, confirming the notion that he's still behind Tyler Clippard on the closer depth chart.
Oh could see some save chances while Ryan Tepera (elbow) is on the disabled list and Roberto Osuna is suspended, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Per Wilner, manager John Gibbons said he likes how he can count on Oh to throw strikes in those high-leverage situations. Indeed, Oh's 2.4 BB/9 is the best mark among Blue Jays relievers who have thrown more than 20 innings this season. Tyler Clippard, who got the save Friday, is still the presumed favorite to get saves while Tepera is out, but Oh has been a better pitcher than Clippard thus far, and Gibbons certainly seems open to spreading the save chances around. Osuna is expected to take over the closer's role immediately once he is activated on Aug. 5.
Oh allowed a walk and a hit but used two strikeouts to complete a scoreless ninth for his second save Monday against the Astros.
Tyler Clippard and Ryan Tepera had each pitched on back-to-back nights heading into Monday's game, so Oh was called on in his stead Monday night. It still appears that Oh is behind both Clippard and Tepera on the depth chart, but as long as Roberto Osuna (administrative leave) is out, there's a chance Oh could be in the mix for at least the occasional save, particularly if Clippard or Tepera (or both) stumble in the closer's role.
