Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Takes fourth straight defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack (4-5) allowed three runs on seven hits with two walks and four strikeouts across 3.2 innings while taking a loss against the Yankees on Saturday.

This was the 25-year-old's fourth loss in a row, and his ERA has risen after each defeat. Failing to get out of the fourth meant Waguespack allowed just as many baserunners as his last start in one fewer inning Saturday. He now owns a 4.70 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 52 strikeouts in 67 innings this season. Waguespack will look to break out of this slump in his next start Friday, but he will again face the Yankees, this time on the road.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Gives up six runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack (4-4) gave up six runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out two through 4.1 innings to take the loss against the Rays on Sunday.

Waguespack allowed three runs in the first two innings including a solo home run, but he gave up three hits while only recording an out in the fifth frame before being removed from the game. The six runs were a career high for Waguespack, who posted a 3.10 ERA in his previous five starts but also has a 4.94 FIP. The 25-year-old has a 4.55 ERA with a 48:23 K:BB through 10 starts this season. Waguespack is scheduled to make his next start Saturday against the Yankees at Rogers Centre.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Yields five runs with only one hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack (4-3) allowed four runs (two earned) on one hit with five walks and four strikeouts across four innings while taking a loss against the Braves on Monday.

While he gave up just one hit, it was a home run, and the walks just killed him. One of his five walks scored on the long ball, and two more Braves who reached with walks crossed the plate because of an error. Two starts ago, Waguespack threw seven shutout innings, but since then, he's yielded five earned runs (nine total) in seven innings. He owns a 3.97 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 46 strikeouts in 59 innings this season. Waguespack is scheduled to start next at the Rays on Sunday.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Labors through three innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack (4-2) allowed five runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out two across three innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Braves.

Waguespack struggled through a 35-pitch second inning, surrendering all five runs in the frame. It began with a solo home run by Matt Joyce and was followed by three more doubles. The rough outing ended what had been a solid run for Waguespack, as he had recorded three quality starts in his last five appearances, never allowing more than three runs in that span. Even considering Wednesday's performance, Waguespack has been fairly impressive by maintaining a 3.93 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with 42 strikeouts across 55 innings this season. He'll look to bounce back in his next start, currently scheduled for Tuesday in a rematch at Atlanta.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Allows one hit in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack shut out the Dodgers over seven innings Thursday but did not factor into the decision. He gave up one hit and one walk while striking out five.

Facing the top scoring team in the National League, Waguespack was simply brilliant in hurling the best outing of his career. He hit Enrique Hernandez with a pitch in the second inning and gave up a single to pitcher Kenta Maeda followed by a walk to AJ Pollock in the third but retired the final 14 batters he faced, departing after the seventh inning with a one-run lead that the Blue Jays bullpen couldn't hold. The 25-year old got off a to a slow start this season but has turned things around in his last five outings, posting a 3-0 record along with a 1.93 ERA and 18:8 K:BB in 28 innings over that span. He'll face another tough interleague opponent when he heads home to take on Atlanta on Tuesday in his next scheduled start.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Puts early struggles in rearview
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack (4-1) picked up the win after allowing two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out five over 5.1 innings Friday against Seattle.

The right-hander was hit for two runs in the second inning, but he responded by firing 3.1 scoreless frames to end his outing, resulting in a victory. Waguespack has now notched a win in three of his last four starts, and his ERA has improved from 5.63 to 4.20 over that stretch.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Yields three runs in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack allowed three runs on three hits with two walks and two strikeouts across 3.2 innings in relief against the Yankees on Saturday.

The Blue Jays deployed the opener strategy again, so Waguespack pitched the most innings of any Toronto pitcher Saturday, but he also gave up the most runs. Waguespack has still pitched much better lately, though, as he owns a 2.30 ERA in his last three outings. Overall, he's 3-1 with a 4.31 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 30 strikeouts in 39.2 innings this season. Expect Waguespack to start or pitch the bulk of the relief innings against the Mariners on Friday.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Delivers quality start in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack (3-1) allowed four hits and one walk while striking out four through six scoreless innings to take the win over the Rays on Monday.

Waguespack limited the Rays to only five baserunners and cruised through six innings of work. After failing to pitch six innings in his first five starts, Waguespack has delivered two consecutive quality starts. The 25-year-old has a 4.00 ERA through five starts this season. Waguespack will make his next start Saturday against the Yankees at Rogers Centre.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Notches second win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack (2-1) earned the win Wednesday at Kansas City after allowing one run on three hits over six innings. He had two strikeouts and one walk.

Waguespack delivered the best outing of his young career, completing six innings for the first time in six starts. The 25-year-old has a 4.80 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 24:9 K:BB through 30 innings and lines up to pitch Monday at Tampa Bay.

July 27, 2019 12:16 PM
Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Walks three in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack (1-1) allowed three runs on six hits with three walks and two strikeouts across five innings while taking a loss against the Rays on Friday.

The 25-year-old gave up fewer hits in this contest, but the three walks still helped raise his WHIP, and his ERA barely budged. It's a small sample, but Waguespack owns a 5.63 ERA, 1.54 WHIP, .306 batting average against and 22 strikeouts in 24 innings this season. He will pitch next at the Royals on Wednesday.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Strikes out seven in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack gave up three runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out seven through 5.1 innings in a no-decision against the Tigers on Sunday.

Waguespack was hittable, but he generated 14 swinging strikes while racking up plenty of strikeouts. The 25-year-old does not have an impressive ERA (5.68), but he has a 3.94 xFIP and a 9.5 K/9 over four appearances this season. Waguespack will make his next start Saturday against the Rays at Rogers Centre.

July 20, 2019 07:20 PM
Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Getting second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack will stick in the Toronto rotation and start Sunday's game against the Tigers.

The 25-year-old made his first big-league start Tuesday against Boston, giving up four runs on six hits and three walks across 4.2 innings while not factoring into the decision. Despite the underwhelming showing, Waguespack will receive another turn, though he may need a better outing this weekend to guarantee him additional starts moving forward. If Waguespack can't get the job done, the newly acquired Wilmer Font could be next in line to step in as the Blue Jays' No. 5 starter.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Surrenders four earned runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack allowed four earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out two across 4.2 innings Tuesday against the Red Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

Waguespack drew his first big-league start Tuesday and held the Red Sox quiet through four innings. However, after getting two outs in the fifth frame he allowed five consecutive batters to reach base prior to being yanked from the contest. While the team's plans for him beyond Tuesday's outing remain unclear, Waguespack could be a part of the rotation moving forward due to Clayton Richard's recent lat injury. If Waguespack were to stay on regular rest, he would draw his next start Sunday at Detroit.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Officially recalled
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo to make his first major-league start Tuesday against the Red Sox.

As expected, Waguespack has been promoted in time to start the second game of Toronto's series with Boston. He may have a shot to stick in the rotation if he turns in a decent outing, though his 5.30 ERA and 1.57 WHIP across 52.2 Triple-A innings this season show that's far from a sure thing.

July 16, 2019 08:52 AM
Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Getting starting nod Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays will recall Waguespack from Triple-A Buffalo to start Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.

As manager Charlie Montoyo hinted would be the case over the weekend, Waguespack will be summoned from the minors for his first career big-league start with Toronto requiring a fifth man in its rotation for the first time in the second half. Across 52.2 innings in the International League in 2019, Waguespack has posted a 5.30 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 52 strikeouts.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Likely to enter rotation Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Charlie Montoyo said the Blue Jays will likely recall Waguespack from Triple-A Buffalo to start Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Coming out of the All-Star break, Toronto has elected to stock up on extra bullpen arms until a fifth starter is first required Tuesday. After working in long relief in his prior two appearances with the Blue Jays this season, Waguespack should step into the rotation this week for what will be his first career MLB start. The 25-year-old has served as a full-time starter at Triple-A this season, posting a 5.30 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 52:25 K:BB in 52.2 innings.

July 4, 2019 03:56 PM
Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Sent down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.

Waguespack tossed five innings of three-run ball Wednesday against Boston en route to his first career win and was not going to be available to pitch again before the break anyway. The Blue Jays are seriously lacking in viable starting pitching, so while it's not entirely clear when Waguespack will be back, it seems likely that he will get some run in the rotation in the second half.

July 4, 2019 05:36 PM
Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Earns first career win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack (1-0) allowed three earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out four across five innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Waguespack began his outing in the second inning, following opener David Phelps, and he worked fairly effectively to earn his first career win. He ran into trouble in the third frame, surrendering three hits and allowing two earned runs, though the only other blemish came on a solo home run by Christian Vazquez. This was likely a spot start for Waguespack, though the team's future plans for him will become more clear after the All-Star break.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: To follow opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack will not start Wednesday's game against the Red Sox but will likely pitch the bulk of the innings behind opener David Phelps, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

Waguespack becomes marginally more interesting due to the change, as he'll skip the toughest part of Boston's lineup his first time through the order and can be eligible for a win even if he doesn't throw five innings. He's still not a very appealing option, however, as his ERA sits at 5.30 in 52.2 innings for Triple-A Buffalo.

July 4, 2019 04:08 PM
Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Activated ahead of spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list in advance of his Wednesday start against the Red Sox, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

This will be the first MLB start for the 25-year-old righty, who has logged just four innings out of the big-league bullpen. He had a 5.30 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 52 strikeouts in 52.2 innings working as a starter at Triple-A. Given his lack of pedigree or track record and this difficult matchup, Waguespack is not a great streaming option in what almost certainly will be a spot start.
