  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Reinstated from IL

    Cimber (back) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Tuesday.

    A right rhomboid strain has held Cimber out since the end of April, but after throwing an extra bullpen session Monday, the 32-year-old righty will return to Toronto's bullpen. Cimber has allowed five earned runs through 10 innings this season, with three of them coming in his last two appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Scoreless outing in return

    Cimber gave up a hit and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning during Tuesday's rout of the Rays.

    It wouldn't have been possible to find a lower-leverage spot for Cimber in his return from the injured list -- the Jays were up 20-1 when he took the mound -- but the appearance was still a success as he tossed nine of 14 pitches for strikes, and the one hit he allowed came when Christian Bethancourt fought off a fastball above the strike zone and slapped it the other way for a single. Cimber looked good early in the season before being shut down due to back issues, and if he stays healthy the sidearming right-hander should be a key part of the middle-inning bridge to closer Jordan Romano.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Begins rehab assignment

    Cimber (back) began a rehab assignment with Low-A Dunedin on Thursday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Cimber walked one and struck out one in two-thirds of an inning. It's not clear how many rehab appearances he'll need before being activated, but it shouldn't be too many since he's missed less than three weeks of action.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Closing in on rehab assignment

    Cimber (back) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Arden Zwelling of reports.

    Assuming he bounces back well, Cimber could be ready for a rehab assignment. He's been out since late April with a back injury but doesn't seem too far removed from rejoining Toronto's bullpen.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Resumes throwing

    Cimber (back) threw in the outfield before Friday's game against Seattle, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    This is the first time Cimber has thrown since landing on the injured list with an upper-back strain. There is still no official return date in place for the 32-year-old reliever, but Blue Jays manager John Schneider previously expressed optimism that Cimber wouldn't have an extended stay on the IL.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Shelved with upper-back strain

    The Blue Jays placed Cimber on the 15-day injured list Monday with a right rhomboid strain.

    Right-hander Nate Pearson was summoned from Triple-A Buffalo to replace Cimber on the 26-man active roster and in the Toronto bullpen. Cimber opened the season with four scoreless innings and scooped up a save across his first four appearances, but he's logged a 7.50 ERA and 1.67 WHIP over his subsequent seven relief outings. Blue Jays manager John Schneider said Monday that Cimber is expected to resume throwing later this week and could be in line for a "minimal stay" on the IL, per Mitch Bannon of

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Picks up rare save

    Cimber struck out one and did not allow a baserunner in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Thursday against the Royals.

    He took advantage of a rare save chance, as Jordan Romano was unavailable after pitching each of the last two days. Cimber had little trouble protecting a three-run lead, inducing two groundball outs before striking out MJ Melendez to end the game. Cimber has turned in four scoreless innings to begin the season, though he has walked two and also hit a batter.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Looks good Monday

    Cimber tossed a scoreless seventh inning in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers. He didn't walk or strike out a batter.

    The groundball specialist hasn't seen much game action this spring, working 3.1 innings over four appearances, but Cimber looked ready for Opening Day on Monday and needed only 10 pitches (eight strikes) to retire the side. After recording career highs with four saves, 10 wins and 20 holds in 2022, the 32-year-old right-hander will serve in a high-leverage role once again with Toronto, but his lack of strikeouts limits his fantasy ceiling in some formats.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Settles with Toronto

    Cimber signed a one-year, $3.15 million contract with Toronto on Friday to avoid arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports.

    In his first full season with the Blue Jays, Cimber put up a 2.80 ERA and 1.12 WHIP through 70.2 innings out of the bullpen, earning 20 holds and four saves in the process. His impressive stats were more than enough to warrant a healthy raise for the 32-year-old righty, who will most likely serve as a setup man in 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Records 10th win

    Cimber (10-5) earned the win in Wednesday's 3-2 extra-inning victory over the Red Sox. He allowed one hit in a scoreless inning without recording a strikeout.

    Cimber had little trouble in the ninth inning, retiring the Red Sox on just eight pitches to send the game to extras. The Blue Jays would end up winning after George Springer hit a double to score Jackie Bradley in the 10th. Amazingly, the reliever now has 10 wins on the season to go along with four saves and 13 holds.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Picks up fourth save

    Cimber earned the save in Thursday's 4-1 win over Tampa Bay, striking out one in a perfect ninth inning.

    Cimber had no trouble with the middle of the Rays' lineup and needed just 10 pitches to close out the game. It was his fourth save of the season and first since May 17. After a rough patch in the middle of June, the righty has allowed just one baserunner in his last 3.2 innings. Jordan Romano had pitched on consecutive days and will continue to serve as Toronto's closer, but Cimber should still receive the occasional save chance.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Snags another save Tuesday

    Cimber pitched a perfect ninth inning on his way to a save in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Mariners.

    Cimber was once again called on to finish Tuesday's win and he retired the Mariners in order for a 1-2-3 ninth inning and his second save in as many days. Jordan Romano (illness) is expected to return soon, but in the meantime, the 31-year-old Cimber has been holding down the final frame and is up to three saves on the year. He has now pitched 3.2 no-hit innings over his last four appearances, surrendering two walks while striking out three. Cimber's 2.20 ERA and 0.81 WHIP over 15.1 innings this season both represent career bests for the right-hander.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Earns rare save Monday

    Cimber pitched two-thirds of an inning, retiring both batters he faced while striking out one on his way to a save in Monday's 6-2 win over the Mariners.

    With Jordan Romano (illness) unavailable Monday, Cimber was called upon to get the final two outs of the Blue Jays' win over the Mariners. After Ross Stripling gave up an unearned run while registering one out in the ninth, the 29-year-old entered the game and got both batters he faced out, stranding two runners on base. The save was his second of the season while he has five holds operating as a set-up option before Romano who typically gets the ninth frame. Cimber has a 2.35 ERA and 0.85 WHIP with 11 punchouts in 15.1 innings this year.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Stuck with loss Sunday

    Cimber (4-2) took the loss Sunday against the Guardians, recording only one out while giving up a run on two hits and a walk.

    Entering a 3-3 tie with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, Cimber couldn't find that third out, issuing a free pass to Andres Gimenez in between sharp singles from Franmil Reyes and Oscar Mercado. The sidearmer hadn't pitched since Tuesday, but he might still be feeling the effects of a fairly heavy early-season workload that has included a lot of high-leverage spots. Cimber sports a 2.84 ERA and 0.87 WHIP with a save and five holds over 13 appearances and 12.2 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Backs into win No. 4

    Cimber (4-0) picked up the win but blew the save in Monday's victory over the Red Sox, giving up one hit without allowing a run in the eighth inning.

    While the sidearmer's own line in the box score was clean, he did allow two inherited runners to score, costing Jose Berrios the win as Cimber left the mound with the score tied 2-2. Bo Bichette's grand slam in the bottom of the frame then gave the right-hander another vultured win. Cimber's importance to the Blue Jays' bullpen is highlighted by the fact that he's recorded a win (four), save (one) or hold (three) in all eight of his appearances so far in 2022.
