Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left back strain Thursday.

Waguespack was recalled by the Blue Jays on Wednesday, but he was roughed up in relief against the Yankees. The right-hander allowed five runs on five hits and one walk while striking out zero over two innings. His injury could have played a role in his struggles, and he should now miss the remainder of the regular season while he recovers. It's unclear whether Waguespack will be in the Blue Jays' bullpen during a potential postseason run.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Returns to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack was recalled by the Blue Jays on Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Waguespack will continue his shuffle between the active roster and alternate camp as part of a string of transactions in the bullpen Wednesday. The right-hander was sent down Saturday, but he'll return to the bullpen several days later. However, he should continue to work in a low-leverage role as he carries a 6.32 ERA and 1.91 WHIP over 15.2 relief innings this season.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Optioned yet again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack was optioned by the Blue Jays on Saturday, Gregor Chisholm of the Toronto Star reports.

Waguespack is very much on the fringe of the Blue Jays roster, as he's spent four separate stints with the team in this very short season. With a 6.32 ERA and a 1.91 WHIP in 15.2 innings of relief, it's not hard to see why he hasn't nailed down a permanent place on the team. Bo Bichette (knee) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack was recalled by the Blue Jays on Friday.

Waguespack has bounced between the tax squad and the active roster throughout the season. He's been mediocre when active, posting a 4.85 ERA and a 1.77 WHIP in 13 innings of relief work.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Optioned to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack was optioned off the Blue Jays' roster Tuesday and added to the team's taxi squad.

Waguespack has bounced on and off the roster throughout the season. He's been mediocre when available, posting a 4.85 ERA and a 1.77 WHIP in 13 innings of work, all of which have come out of the bullpen.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Returns to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays recalled Waguespack from their taxi squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Rays.

Waguespack will be available out of the bullpen Sunday after the Blue Jays placed starting pitcher Matt Shoemaker (shoulder) on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Over his eight appearances with the big club this season, Waguespack has posted a 3.97 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 14:7 K:BB across 11.1 innings.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Dropped from active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays optioned Waguespack to their alternate training site Friday.

Waguespack worked 2.1 innings of long relief Thursday in the Blue Jays' 9-8 win over the Phillies in the second game of a doubleheader, tossing 47 pitches in the outing. Due to the heavy workload, Waguespack likely wouldn't have been available for at least the next two days, so the Blue Jays will presumably fill his spot on the active roster with a fresh arm ahead of Friday's series opener in Tampa Bay.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays recalled Waguespack from their alternate training site Wednesday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

Toronto demoted Waguespack to their alternate site ahead of Tuesday's 8-7 win in 10 innings, but he'll be eligible to rejoin the big club a day later after Nate Pearson (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. While he's up with Toronto, Waguespack will likely see most of his work out of the bullpen in low-leverage spots.

August 18, 2020 06:44 PM
Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Optioned to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack was optioned off the Blue Jays' active roster Tuesday.

Waguespack, who owns a 4.00 ERA in nine innings of relief this season, will remain near the team as part of the taxi squad. Julian Merryweather was recalled in a corresponding move.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Finishes out series-opening win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack gave up a run on one hit and a walk while striking out one over an inning of relief Monday in the Blue Jays' 7-2 win over the Orioles.

Waguespack was merely mopping up in the win, as he entered the contest in the bottom of the ninth with Toronto holding a 7-1 lead. The right-hander is expected to work in a low-leverage role out of the bullpen all season unless the Blue Jays' starting pitching depth gets tested.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Dropped from active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays optioned Waguespack to their alternate training site prior to Sunday's game against the Rays.

He'll be replaced on the active roster by Sam Gaviglio, who will serve as the Blue Jays' 29th man since both Toronto and Tampa Bay were awarded an extra player after the two sides finished out Saturday's suspended game earlier in the day. Waguespack has made five appearances out of the Toronto bullpen this season, giving up four runs (two earned) in 7.2 innings.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Accidentally left off lineup card
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack was deemed ineligible to pitch in Thursday's game against the Braves after accidentally being left off the team's lineup card, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

Thursday had already been a crazy day for Waguespack, as the right-hander was sent to the alternate training site in the morning and then later recalled to the big-league team after Trent Thornton (elbow) was placed on the injured list. Waguespack began warming up on the mound in the bottom of the sixth, but ultimately was sent back to the dugout after being deemed ineligible by the umpire crew.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack was recalled from Toronto's alternate training site Thursday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

Waguespack was optioned to the team's satellite camp earlier in the day but rejoined the roster after Trent Thornton (elbow) was placed on the injured list. The right-hander has allowed two hits and three walks while striking out four batters across four scoreless innings this season.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Sent down Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack was optioned to Toronto's alternate training site Thursday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

He will be on the taxi squad for the final four games of this road trip. Waguespack has made three appearances this season and has tossed four scoreless innings with a 4:3 K:BB. He will continue to serve as organizational bullpen depth over the rest of the summer.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Can't find plate Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack gave up two hits and two walks in only one-third of an inning of relief during Tuesday's loss to Atlanta.

After Matt Shoemaker exited the game in the fifth inning, Waguespack replaced him and promptly walked the first batter he faced on four pitches before getting the final out of the frame. He then loaded the bases to begin the sixth before getting the hook, but Anthony Kay was able to bail him out. Waguespack still has a 0.00 ERA through four innings over three appearances as a result, but his 4:3 K:BB and low-leverage role in the Toronto bullpen make him a fantasy afterthought.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Added to roster pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays included Waguespack as part of their 60-man roster pool that was announced Sunday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

Though Waguespack was ousted from the competition for a rotation spot with the big club when he was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on March 26, he should represent one of the top options to step in when a spot starter is needed during the 60-game season. He proved to be serviceable over his 16 appearances (13 starts) for Toronto in 2019, logging a 4.38 ERA and 63:29 K:BB over 78 innings.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Falls short of rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

Waguespack impressed during spring training -- striking out seven batters across 5.1 scoreless innings before camp was paused -- though he was always on the outside looking in at a rotation spot. He'll stay stretched out in the minors until the Blue Jays need an additional starter or long man.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Vying for spot in crowded rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Monday that Waguespack will compete for a spot in the club's Opening Day rotation, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

Waguespack, who went undrafted in 2015, made an improbable rise into Toronto's rotation last season and held his own over 13 starts, churning out a 4.13 ERA and 1.35 WHIP across 65.1 innings. Even though he was one of the more dependable arms in a lackluster rotation, Waguespack may find himself on the outside looking in for a spot after Toronto brought in three established MLB starters in Hyun-Jin Ryu, Tanner Roark and Chase Anderson this winter, along with Japanese import Shui Yamaguchi. Mitchell notes that Waguespack could still have a spot on the Opening Day roster as a long man out of the bullpen if he's unable to secure a starting role.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Earns fifth victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack (5-5) threw six shutout innings while allowing four hits with two walks and five strikeouts to earn a victory against the Orioles on Wednesday.

The victory snapped a streak of four losses in his last four decisions and gave Waguespack his first win since Aug. 16. The 25-year-old certainly went through dry spells, like this recent one, but overall, he turned in a decent rookie season. He finishes the year 5-5 with a 4.38 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 63 strikeouts in 78 innings this season.

Blue Jays' Jacob Waguespack: Takes no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Waguespack allowed three runs on four hits with one walk and six strikeouts across five innings during a no-decision against the Yankees on Friday.

The 25-year-old is going through a tough stretch at the moment. While he avoided defeat Friday, Waguespack has lost his last four decisions, and he owns a 7.65 ERA during that stretch. Overall, he's 4-5 with a 4.75 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 58 strikeouts in 72 innings this season. Waguespack is scheduled to make his last start of the year Wednesday at home against the Orioles.
