  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Not starting Tuesday

    Biggio isn't in the Blue Jays' lineup for Tuesday's game against Kansas City.

    Biggio will get a day to rest Tuesday after going 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored during Monday's victory. His absence will allow Davis Schneider to start at the keystone while batting sixth.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Day off Tuesday

    Jansen isn't in Toronto's lineup for Tuesday's game aganist the Royals.

  • Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: Drives in three in win

    Bichette went 1-for-4 with a triple and three RBI in Monday's win over the Royals.

    He opened the scoring on the night with a bases-loaded three-bagger in the third inning. Bichette only has one homer on the season so far, but he's finding ways to stay productive. Over the last 10 games, the 26-year-old shortstop is batting .282 (11-for-39) with three steals, five RBI and five runs.

  • Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Power surge continues Monday

    Varsho went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Monday's win over the Royals.

    The 27-year-old outfielder gave the Blue Jays some crucial insurance runs in the sixth inning by taking Brady Singer deep. Varsho has six homers on the season, and all of them have come in the last 10 games -- a stretch in which he's batting .355 (11-for-31) with three doubles, two steals, nine runs and 13 RBI.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Picks up save

    Romano allowed a run on one hit in one inning Monday. He struck out one batter and earned a save over Kansas City.

    Romano coughed up a solo homer to Kyle Isbel but still finished off the 5-3 victory. Romano has converted each of his three save chances since returning from the injured list April 16. Through four appearances, he's given up two runs and has yet to walk a batter.

  • Blue Jays' Yusei Kikuchi: Produces quality start

    Kikuchi (2-1) yielded two runs on five hits over six innings Monday, striking out four and earning a win over the Royals.

    Kikuchi cruised through five shutout frames before serving up a two-run shot to Maikel Garcia in the sixth inning. Kikuchi has now turned in three straight quality starts and has not allowed more than three runs in any outing this season. After a career year in 2023, the veteran southpaw has registered a terrific 2.28 ERA and 33:8 K:BB through five starts in 2024. Kikuchi is in line for a tough home matchup with the Dodgers this weekend.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Gets Monday off

    Kiermaier is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals.

    Kiermaier will head to the bench after he had started each of the previous four games in center field, going 5-for-13 with two doubles, one walk, two runs and two RBI over that stretch. Daulton Varsho will shift over to center field in Kiermaier's place while Davis Schneider draws a start in left field.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Set for another rehab start

    Blue Jays manager John Schneider said that Manoah (shoulder) will make his next rehab start for Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday or Thursday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    In his third and most recent rehab start Friday with Buffalo, Manoah covered 5.2 innings and allowed two earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out five. Over his last two rehab appearances, Manoah has shown dramatic improvement with his control, as he's issued just one free pass in nine innings. Schneider noted that he liked Manoah's fastball command and slider movement following Friday's outing, and if the right-hander can deliver another positive showing this week with Buffalo, his next start could come in the big-league rotation. Manoah has been on the 15-day injured list all season due to right shoulder inflammation, which kept him out of most of spring training.

  • Blue Jays' Ricky Tiedemann: Meeting with doctors

    Tiedemann (elbow) is set to meet with doctors in Toronto this week, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Keegan Matheson of MLB.com notes that the meeting was prompted by Tiedemann experiencing elbow discomfort. Prior to landing on the 7-day IL on April 18, Tiedemann made three starts with Triple-A Buffalo, going 0-1 while posting a 5.63 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 10:9 K:BB over eight frames.

  • Blue Jays' Orelvis Martinez: Triple-A hit streak at 15 games

    Martinez went 2-for-5 with a walk, a home run, two runs scored and four RBI in Triple-A Buffalo's 16-4 rout of Columbus on Sunday.

    The 22-year-old might be the hottest hitter in the minor leagues right now. Martinez has a 15-game hit streak going in which he's slashing .361/.418/.754, and all six of his homers on the season for Buffalo have come in the last seven contests. The Blue Jays have been mixing and matching four different players at the keystone so far with solid results -- the team sits in the top 10 in OPS, wOBA and wRC+ from the second-base position with an aggregate .252/.329/.413 slash line -- but Martinez's performance at the highest level of the minors is getting hard to ignore. A promotion seems likely sooner rather than later.

  • Blue Jays' Yariel Rodriguez: Likely to move to bullpen soon

    Rodriguez remains on a restricted workload this season and will likely shift to a multi-inning relief role once Alek Manoah (shoulder) is deemed ready to join the rotation, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    The 27-year-old Cuban rookie has been impressive in his first two MLB starts, posting a 2.35 ERA and 13:3 K:BB through 7.2 innings, but after not pitching professionally in 2023 and working out of the bullpen in Japan prior to that, the Blue Jays don't want to burn Rodriguez out with a heavy workload this season. Manoah likely needs at least one more rehab start, but he's on the same schedule as Rodriguez at Triple-A Buffalo, and the Jays could make the switch in their big-league rotation as soon as April 29 at home against the Royals.

  • Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Still in rotation plans

    Manoah (shoulder) showed improvement in his rehab start Friday with Triple-A Buffalo, allowing two runs on six hits over 5.2 innings. He struck out five without walking a batter.

    The right-hander still wasn't at his sharpest, giving up a two-run shot to Columbus' Johnathan Rodriguez in the first inning as well as three doubles, but Manoah threw 61 of 92 pitches for strikes, and the lack of free passes was encouraging. The Blue Jays are still counting on the 26-year-old to fill a rotation spot in the majors this season, and while Yariel Rodriguez is currently filling the No. 5 starter role admirably, Kaithyn McGrath of The Athletic reports that the Cuban rookie will be kept on a strict workload limit this season and is a candidate to transition into a multi-inning relief role. Rodriguez and Manoah are pitching on the same schedule, so assuming Toronto wants Manoah to make at least one more rehab start before activating him, he could make his season debut as early as April 29 at home against the Royals.

  • Blue Jays' Ernie Clement: Goes deep in loss

    Clement went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

    Clement left the yard with a solo blast to left field off Joe Musgrove in the third inning for his second home run of the year. Clement came into this season with just four career home runs and is already halfway to that mark in the first month of the campaign. The 28-year-old is slashing .295/.304/.500 with five extra-base hits, four RBI, nine runs and a 0:5 BB:K in 46 plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Leaves yard Sunday

    Schneider went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

    Schneider went deep off Joe Musgrove in the second inning for this first home run since April 2 and later plated another run in the seventh on a groundout. Sunday's home run was also Schneider's first extra-base hit since April 12, and he's now slashing .227/.292/.477 with three homers, 10 RBI, seven runs and a 3:12 BB:K in 48 plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Takes loss against Padres

    Bassitt (2-3) took the loss Sunday against the Padres after allowing four runs (two earned) on six hits and three walks while striking out four in 5.1 innings.

    Bassitt allowed an unearned run off an error in the opening frame before Xander Bogaerts got a hold of one in the third. Bassitt battled into the sixth but would exit early after allowing a one-out walk and a single, with both runs eventually coming around to score. Bassitt mentioned after the game that he and about 20 other members of the Blue Jays are battling a sinus infection right now and he tried to fight through it as best he could but noted he didn't have his best stuff, per Kyle Glaser, a sports media professional at USC's School of Business. The 35-year-old now owns a 3.90 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 26:14 K:BB in 27.2 innings and lines up for a start against the Dodgers his next time out.
