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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Waguespack (shoulder) is expected to be activated off the 10-day injured list to start Wednesday against the Red Sox, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Scheduled starter Sean Reid-Foley delivered 3.1 innings out of the bullpen for the Blue Jays on Tuesday, putting Waguespack in line for the first major-league start of his career. The 25-year-old landed on the injured list in late May shortly after his first big-league callup and made three rehab outings at Triple-A Buffalo over the past couple weeks. Waguespack threw 73 pitches in his most recent appearance.
Waguespack (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Waguespack has been dealing with shoulder tightness ever since making his big-league debut in late May. He's gotten through a live batting practice session with no issues. It's not clear if he'll be returning to Toronto or Buffalo once he returns from the injured list.
Waguespack (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
Waguespack apparently felt some tightness in his shoulder following his fourth inning of relief Tuesday. While the Blue Jays originally deemed his removal precautionary, it turns out the issue is serious enough to require a stay on the shelf. The right-hander will be eligible to return June 8, though it remains to be seen if he'll be ready by then. Elvis Luciano was reinstated from the bereavement list in a corresponding move.
Waguespack left Monday's game against the Rays with shoulder tightness, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Waguespack threw four innings of relief in his big-league debut, striking out seven while allowing three runs (two earned) on three hits and a walk. The Blue Jays called his removal precautionary, so it doesn't sound as though he's expected to head to the injured list.
The Blue Jays recalled Waguespack from Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.
Waguespack has been a member of the Buffalo rotation all season, posting a 5.86 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 44:21 K:BB across 43 innings in his nine starts. In his first taste of the big leagues, the right-hander will likely work in long relief, providing Toronto with some extra depth out of the bullpen while Tim Mayza (forearm) and Ryan Tepera (elbow) are sidelined.
