Oh pitched one shutout inning and collected a save Sunday against the Yankees.
Oh gave up one hit and struck out one batter in Sunday's victory over New York. Roberto Osuna pitched an inning in Friday and Saturday's games, making it possible for Oh to earn his first save of the season. Oh could hold fantasy value in deeper leagues, as it's possible that he could see additional save opportunities depending on Osuna's availability.
Oh (elbow) received his work visa to join the Blue Jays in camp and is listed as an available pitcher for Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Phillies, John Lott of The Athletic Toronto reports.
It's been a tumultuous last couple of months for Oh, who initially agreed to a contract with the Rangers in February before the deal was called off weeks later when the team identified an elbow issue in his physical. Days later, Oh put pen to paper with the Blue Jays after Toronto felt comfortable with his health, but he has been forced to work out on his own the last three weeks while he awaited the visa. With that situation finally remedied, Oh can finally turn his attention to preparing for the start of the season. Though he remains well behind the pace of his bullpen mates after having yet to face hitters, Oh said he has kept his arm conditioned through bullpen sessions and is optimistic he'll be available for Opening Day. Even if that's the case, manager John Gibbons may shy away from using Oh in high-leverage spots early on in the regular season until the right-hander gets settled in.
Oh was hoping to get approved quickly following his meeting at the U.S. consulate in Toronto, but there hasn't been any news regarding his status just yet. In the event that he received the work visa Monday, the Blue Jays scheduled Oh for a bullpen session Tuesday, and an appearance in an exhibition Wednesday, although it seems unlikely he'll be approved before then. More information regarding his eligibility figures to surface in the near future.
Oh (elbow) remains absent from Blue Jays camp while he continues to await a work visa from the United States government, but is hopeful to join the team this week, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
It initially appeared Oh would attend spring training with the Rangers after agreeing in principle with the team on a contract in February, but the deal was nixed after the right-hander failed to pass a physical due to elbow inflammation. The Blue Jays apparently weren't as concerned about Oh's health and signed him later in February to a one-year deal. The landing spot isn't ideal for Oh with Roberto Osuna locked in as closer, so expect the 35-year-old to offer limited fantasy appeal once he settles into a middle-relief or setup role with Toronto. Oh has said that he has kept his arm conditioned for Opening Day by throwing bullpen sessions during his time away from spring training.
Oh (elbow) can't pitch in games until his visa is sorted out, but he will throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
While his deal with the Rangers was nixed earlier this offseason due to right elbow inflammation, it doesn't sound like Oh is too hurt to pitch. It's unclear when his visa issue will be sorted out, but he should be pitching in games in the near future. While Roberto Osuna is the unquestioned closer, Oh is as good a bet as anyone else in that bullpen to get save opportunities if Osuna gets hurt or encounters unforeseen struggles.
