Top Blue Jays News

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Pillar: No drama on deadline day

    Pillar agreed to a one-year, $5.8 million contract with the Blue Jays on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Pillar received a considerable raise, as his salary will increase in 2019 by $1.9 million. He posted another solid season in 2018, slashing .252/.282/.426 with 15 homers, 59 RBI and 14 stolen bases over 142 games.

  • Blue Jays' Aaron Sanchez: Steers clear of arbitration

    Sanchez signed a one-year, $3.9 million deal with the Blue Jays on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Sanchez had a tough time staying healthy in 2018, and as a result, he struggled mightily on the hill. He posted a 4.89 ERA and 1.56 WHIP with 86 strikeouts over 105 innings. Despite a disappointing year, Sanchez underwent surgery to correct his finger injury earlier this offseason and should be ready to go come spring training.

  • Blue Jays' Randal Grichuk: Comes to terms

    Grichuk signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Blue Jays on Friday to avoid arbitration, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Grichuk got off to a slow start in 2018 before losing the month of May to a knee injury, and posted a .271/.319/.553 slash line after he returned. The 27-year-old will enter 2019 in a starting role in right field for Toronto.

  • Blue Jays' Andrew Sopko: Moved in Russell Martin deal

    Sopko was traded from the Dodgers to the Blue Jays along with Ronny Brito for Russell Martin and cash.

    Sopko is the real-life headliner in this trade, as he has 158 career innings under his belt at Double-A, and has a chance to work as a back-end starter for the Blue Jays as soon as this summer. He logged a 3.88 ERA and 48 strikeouts in 53.1 innings at Double-A last year, but his 1.48 WHIP and 4.86 FIP over that stretch should generate skepticism.

  • Blue Jays' Ronny Brito: Dealt for former All-Star

    Brito was traded from the Dodgers to the Blue Jays along with Andrew Sopko for Russell Martin and cash.

    While Brito has a ton of pedigree ($2 million bonus on July 2, 2015), he has not quite lived up to expectations. Most recently he slashed .288/.352/.489 with 11 home runs and a .201 ISO as a 19-year-old in the hitter-friendly Pioneer League. However, his 30.3 percent strikeout rate warrants skepticism regarding how his production will translate against full-season pitching. He has a chance to develop into a bat-first infielder who hits for power but struggles to hit much better than .250 or .260.

  • Blue Jays' Marcus Stroman: Avoids arbitration with Blue Jays

    Stroman signed a one-year, $7.4 million contract with the Blue Jays on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

    Stroman had a $6.5 million salary in 2018 after losing his arbitration hearing, so he'll avoid arbitration this time around. The 27-year-old had a rough year battling injuries, and posted a 5.54 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 77:36 K:BB over 102.1 innings, by far the worst performance of his major-league career. The 27-year-old still enters 2019 as the Blue Jays' top starter as he looks for a bounce-back year.

  • Blue Jays' Brandon Drury: Signs with Blue Jays

    Drury signed a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Blue Jays on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Drury's 2018 season was marred by injury as early in the year he admitted to a long-running battle with migraines before suffering a lingering hand injury, while also being traded from the Yankees to the Blue Jays in July. The 26-year-old flashed solid numbers (.275/.323/.453) with Arizona in 2015 and 2016, but didn't see much major-league action last year.

  • Blue Jays' Devon Travis: Inks deal with Toronto

    Travis signed a one-year, $1.925 million contract with the Blue Jay on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jaime Campbell of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Travis posted his worst numbers in the majors with a .232/.275/.381 slash line and 11 home runs in 378 plate appearances last season, which included a demotion to the minors. 2019 could very well be the 27-year-old's last legitimate chance to show the Blue Jays what he can do given his struggles at the plate and consistent injury issues over the last couple years.

  • Blue Jays' Ken Giles: Avoids arbitration

    Giles agreed to a one-year, $6.3 million deal with the Blue Jays, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

    While Giles wasn't lights-out for Toronto after getting traded there from Houston, he doesn't have much competition for saves to open the year. He is set for one more arbitration year in 2020 before hitting the open market.

  • Blue Jays' Joe Biagini: Avoids arbitration with Toronto

    Biagini signed a one-year, $900,000 deal with the Blue Jays on Friday to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of The Athletic reports.

    Biagini had a promising rookie campaign in 2016 with a 3.06 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 8.2 K/9 over 67.2 innings, but his numbers have plummeted across the board during the past two seasons (5.59 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 7.0 K/9). The 28-year-old will look to recapture that form but he isn't guaranteed a role in the Blue Jays' bullpen given his struggles, though the team's rebuild should allow him at least an opportunity for some innings.

  • Blue Jays' David Phelps: Inks deal with Toronto

    Phelps (elbow) agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Blue Jays on Thursday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Phelps last appeared in the major leagues during the 2017 season, posting a 3.40 ERA with 62 punchouts over 55.2 frames as a relief pitcher across stops in Miami and Seattle. After undergoing Tommy John surgery in March of 2018, the Blue Jays are hopeful the right-hander will be ready in time for spring training and that he could possibly earn a spot in their bullpen. Phelps began a throwing program back in mid-August, although it's unclear as to how close he is to a full recovery.

  • Blue Jays' Oliver Drake: Booted off 40-man roster

    Drake was designated for assignment by Toronto on Sunday.

    Drake was claimed by the Blue Jays at the end of November, but he's already been kicked off the 40-man roster. It's unclear at this point where he'll begin the 2019 campaign, especially given his reputation as a journeyman.

  • Blue Jays' Clayton Richard: Acquired by Blue Jays

    Richard was traded from the Padres to the Blue Jays on Sunday in exchange for Connor Panas and cash considerations.

    Richard was designated for assignment by San Diego back on Dec. 20, but the 35-year-old will ultimately land on his feet after catching on with another organization 10 days later. The lefty's best asset is likely experience at this point, as he's coming off a 2018 campaign that would be best forgotten. In 27 games started for the Padres last season, Richard posted a 5.33 ERA and 1.46 WHIP, both regressions from his 2017 marks, and likely not enough to keep him rostered in most standard formats.
