Top Blue Jays News

  • Blue Jays' Raimel Tapia: Sits after three straight starts

    Tapia is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles.

    Tapia started in center field each of the last three games and went 2-for-9 with a double and a walk, but he'll take a seat Tuesday and give way to Jackie Bradley. Though George Springer returned from the injured list Monday, he's been deployed at designated hitter in both of his first two games back, so Tapia and Bradley could continue to see work in center field until the Blue Jays are comfortable deploying Springer on defense.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Takes seat Tuesday

    Jansen is on the bench Tuesday versus the Orioles.

    Alejandro Kirk is catching Tuesday and George Springer is the designated hitter-a situation that may make it harder for Jansen to find playing time moving forward. Since hitting a pair of home runs July 22, Jansen has hit .100 with no extra-base hits and five RBI.

  • Blue Jays' Whit Merrifield: On bench Tuesday

    Merrifield isn't in the lineup Tuesday against Baltimore.

    It will be difficult to fit both Merrifield and Santiago Espinal, who's playing second base Tuesday, in the lineup every day now that George Springer's back in action. Merrifield has hit .250 with one RBI and one stolen base in nine games since joining the Blue Jays at the deadline.

  • Blue Jays' Irv Carter: Ticketed for Single-A

    The Blue Jays promoted Carter from the rookie-level Florida Complex League to Single-A Dunedin on Tuesday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    A 2021 fifth-round pick, Carter's professional debut was delayed a year while the Blue Jays deliberately managed his workload coming off his senior season of high school. The 19-year-old right-hander was roughed up for 20 runs (18 earned) over 17.2 innings in his first five FCL starts, but he earned the promotion to Single-A after turning a corner around the minor-league All-Star break. Over his final four outings in rookie ball, Carter pitched to a 2.25 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 18:4 K:BB across 16 frames.

  • Blue Jays' Dahian Santos: Headed for High-A

    The Blue Jays promoted Santos from Single-A Dunedin to High-A Vancouver on Tuesday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    He'll be joining the Vancouver rotation as a replacement for Sem Robberse, who was promoted to Double-A New Hampshire in a corresponding move. Santos, a 19-year-old right-hander, has led the Florida State League in strikeout rate (14.7 K/9) this season while churning out a 3.44 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 73.1 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Sem Robberse: Bumped up to Double-A

    The Blue Jays promoted Robberse from High-A Vancouver to Double-A New Hampshire on Tuesday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    Robberse had been one of Vancouver's top starters this season, logging a 3.81 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 80:24 K:BB across 89.2 innings. The 20-year-old right-hander will be rewarded with a stiffer level of competition over the final six weeks of the 2022 campaign.

  • Blue Jays' Matt Peacock: Outrighted to minors

    The Blue Jays outrighted Peacock to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.

    Peacock will remain in the organization after going unclaimed off waivers following the Blue Jays' decision to designate him for assignment last week. The right-hander has yet to debut for Toronto since being claimed off waivers from Kansas City in July.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Reaches base three times in return

    Springer (elbow) went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and a run scored Monday in the Blue Jays' 7-3 loss to the Orioles.

    In his first game back from the 15-day injured list, Springer served as the Blue Jays' leadoff man and designated hitter, allowing Raimel Tapia to maintain a spot in the outfield. It's unclear to what extent Springer's elbow injury is still affecting him when he throws, so it's possible that he'll continue to see regular starts at DH for the time being.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Swats 24th homer

    Guerrero went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's 7-3 loss to the Orioles.

    The 23-year-old still hasn't quite recaptured his 2021 form, but Guerrero keeps teasing a breakout. He's hit safely in 11 of 12 games so far in August, slashing .288/.327/.538 with four doubles and three of his 24 homers on the year.

  • Blue Jays' Yusei Kikuchi: Early exit Monday

    Kikuchi (4-7) took the loss Monday as the Blue Jays were downed 7-3 by the Orioles, coughing up six runs (three earned) on four hits and three walks over 3.1 innings. He struck out three.

    The southpaw's own error on a pickoff attempt in the fourth inning was just one of Toronto's defensive miscues on the night, helping to soften the blow to his ERA, but Kikuchi was hit hard when he did allow contact -- three of the four hits off him went for extra bases, including a two-run homer by Jays nemesis Ryan Mountcastle. Since returning to the rotation at the end of July, Kikuchi has a 5.71 ERA thanks to a 2.6 HR/9 despite an otherwise solid 1.33 WHIP and 17:8 K:BB through 17.1 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Nate Pearson: Slated to throw bullpen

    Pearson (lat) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Pearson increased his throwing distance last week and has now been cleared to throw off a mound for the first time since he sustained his lat injury in June. The right-hander will likely ramp up his intensity over the next few weeks and will presumably require a rehab assignment prior to rejoining the Blue Jays.

  • Blue Jays' Alejandro Kirk: Day off Monday

    Kirk is not in the starting lineup Monday versus the Orioles.

    Kirk will get a day off after he went 1-for-10 with two strikeouts in the three-game series versus the Guardians. George Springer (shoulder) will take over at designated hitter in his return to the lineup and bat leadoff in the series opener.

  • Blue Jays' Bradley Zimmer: Removed from 40-man roster

    Zimmer was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Monday.

    Zimmer will now either report to Triple-A Buffalo, get claimed by another team or be released outright. The outfielder has struggled to a .105/.209/.237 slashline this year over 87 at-bats in 77 games with Toronto and will likely receive little interest from other teams.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Reinstated from IL

    Springer (elbow) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Monday.

    Springer will be back in the lineup Monday after missing the minimum 10 days while nursing his nagging elbow injury. The outfielder has batted .267 with a homer, seven RBI, six runs and a stolen base over 30 at-bats in seven games since the All-Star break. Bradley Zimmer was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

  • Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Three hits in Sunday's loss

    Gurriel went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Guardians.

    The 28-year-old set the table effectively for the Blue Jays, but the rest of the lineup only managed five hits combined off Shane Bieber and the Cleveland bullpen. Gurriel has four multi-hit performances through 10 games in August, and on the season he sports a .308/.359/.419 slash line, albeit with a disappointing five homers and a 3-for-7 performance on stolen base attempts.
