Top Blue Jays News

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Sitting versus southpaw

    Biggio is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees.

    Biggio is in the midst of a nine-game hit streak during which he has a .902 OPS, but he'll take a seat Tuesday as lefty Carlos Rodon pitches for New York. Isiah Kiner-Falefa will shift to the keystone while Ernie Clement starts at third base.

  • Blue Jays' Mitch White: Designated for assignment

    White was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

    White had permitted six earned runs with a 6:4 K:BB across 10 innings in a long relief role for the Jays. The 29-year-old holds just a career 4.99 ERA over 62 appearances (22 starts) at the big-league level, but with an ability to serve as rotation and/or bullpen depth, it's possible there will be some interest via trade or waivers.

  • Blue Jays' Nate Pearson: Sent down to minors

    Pearson was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo by the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

    This is simply a case of Pearson having options left working against him, as he's been outstanding this season with a 9:3 K:BB over 6.1 shutout innings out of Toronto's bullpen. He will be back soon enough.

  • Blue Jays' Erik Swanson: Rejoins Toronto bullpen

    Swanson (forearm) was activated from the 15-day injured list by the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

    Swanson got a late start to the season because of right forearm inflammation but has been cleared to return following three rehab appearances. He is in line for a setup role in the Blue Jays' bullpen, although it's possible he'll be eased back into high-leverage situations.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Activated Tuesday, as expected

    The Blue Jays reinstated Romano (elbow) from the 15-day injured list Tuesday.

    Romano recently completed a two-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo and is ready to make his season debut after missing the first few weeks of the season with elbow inflammation. The 30-year-old righty recorded 36 saves in each of the past two seasons, and manager John Schneider indicated Romano will immediately reclaim the closer role now that he's healthy, per Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca.

  • Blue Jays' Alejandro Kirk: Likely to lose work to Jansen

    Kirk is expected to move to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Yankees and will likely lose out on starts to Danny Jansen (wrist), who was reinstated from the injured list Monday, ESPN.com reports.

    Between wins over the Rockies on Sunday and Yankees on Monday, Kirk reached base seven times, but he's still put together an underwhelming .200/.293/.220 slash line through 58 plate appearances while operating as the Blue Jays' primary backstop so far this season. Though Jansen remained on the bench Monday, he's on track to make his season debut Tuesday and looks poised to handle the larger portion of a timeshare behind the plate with Kirk. Jansen is the more polished defender of the two, and though Kirk has an All-Star appearance and Silver Slugger on his resume, he's been a slightly below league-average hitter since the start of the 2023 season (91 wRC+, .301 wOBA over 480 plate appearances).

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Likely to debut Tuesday

    Jansen (wrist) is expected to join the Toronto lineup and make his season debut in Tuesday's game against the Yankees, ESPN.com reports.

    After missing the first two and a half weeks of the season while recovering from a fractured right wrist suffered in a March 13 spring training game, Jansen was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Monday. He didn't play in Monday's series-opening 3-1 victory, however, as Alejandro Kirk drew the nod behind the plate and went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, an RBI and a run scored. Though Kirk has now reached base seven times over the Blue Jays' last two games, he's still slashing an ugly .200/.293/.220 through 58 plate appearances. Given that he's regarded as the superior defender of the two catchers and in light of Kirk's struggles at the dish, Jansen is expected to emerge as the Blue Jays' No. 1 backstop now that he's healthy.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Snags third steal

    Springer went 0-for-2 with two walks and a stolen base in Monday's win over the Yankees.

    The 34-year-old outfielder stole a career-high 20 bases in 2023, and he's off and running again to begin the current campaign. Springer has three steals in three attempts so far, with all three coming in the last six games. While his .215 batting average (14-for-65) is disappointing, his 11:10 BB:K suggests it's a product of bad luck, not a bad approach at the plate. Springer's added two homers, four RBI and nine runs in 17 games as Toronto's leadoff hitter.

  • Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: Steals second bag

    Bichette went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's win over the Yankees.

    After swiping his first base of the season Friday night against Colorado, Bichette quickly added his second steal Monday against the Yankees. The Toronto shortstop only stole five bases in 2023, so it's possible he is looking to return to his running ways, as he stole 38 bases from 2021 to 2022. Bichette's first 65 plate appearances have been rough so far as he's slashing .217/.277/.333.

  • Blue Jays' Yimi Garcia: Collects second save

    Garcia picked up the save Monday against the Yankees. He retired all three batters he faced without recording a strikeout.

    Garcia recorded his second straight save Monday night after earning his first Saturday against Colorado. This save wasn't easy as he faced the heart of the Yankees order, but he smoothly retired Juan Soto, Aaron Judge and Anthony Rizzo on nine pitches. Although Garcia has collected the last two Toronto saves, he looks to move back into a setup role soon as Jordan Romano (elbow) is slated to return this week.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Stifles Yankees in win

    Bassitt (2-2) earned the win Monday, allowing one run, four hits and two walks over 6.1 innings against the Yankees. He struck out five.

    Bassitt cruised to his second win Monday night, relying on an eight-pitch mix to keep Yankees hitters off-balance all evening. The only blemish of the night came in the second inning when Oswaldo Cabrera knocked an RBI-single through the infield. Bassitt is lined up to pitch against the Padres on the road in his next start.

  • Blue Jays' Joey Votto: No timeline for games yet

    Votto (ankle) has been hitting but there is no timetable for when he will play in games, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Votto's progress has been slow since he sprained an ankle while stepping on a bat in the dugout back on March 17. The 40-year-old is in the midst of what is essentially a full spring training buildup and will eventually report to Triple-A Buffalo once he's physically ready.

  • Blue Jays' Yariel Rodriguez: Set to start Friday

    Rodriguez will start Friday against the Padres, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Rodriguez impressed in his major-league debut Saturday against the Rockies, allowing run run with six strikeouts over 3.2 innings. While the right-hander will stick in the Blue Jays' rotation for now, the team will surely need to curtail his workload eventually. Rodriguez didn't pitch at all in 2023 and was used as a reliever in Japan in 2022.

  • Blue Jays' Erik Swanson: Expected back Tuesday

    Swanson (forearm) is likely to be activated from the injured list Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Swanson has been out all season with right forearm inflammation but is ready to roll after making three rehab appearances. He will be in line for setup duties ahead of closer Jordan Romano (elbow), who is also on track for activation Tuesday.

  • Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Likely to be activated Tuesday

    Blue Jays manager John Schneider said Monday that Romano (elbow) will be activated soon and will immediately regain his closer job, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The strong indication seems to be that Romano will be activated Tuesday. Romano retired just three of the eight batters he faced during a rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo, but it does not appear Schneider will hesitate to use him in a save situation right away. The closer has been out with right elbow inflammation.

  • Blue Jays' Brian Serven: Optioned to Triple-A

    Serven was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo by the Blue Jays on Monday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Serven was the Jays' backup catcher while Danny Jansen (wrist) was on the shelf, but he's no longer needed with Jansen back in the fold. He's hitless in 10 plate appearances this season.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Returns from injured list

    The Blue Jays activated Jansen (wrist) from the 10-day injured list Monday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Jansen wound up missing the first two and a half weeks of the season after suffering a small fracture in his right wrist. He went 4-for-13 with a home run during his rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo and seems likely to ascend to the top of the Blue Jays' catching depth chart given Alejandro Kirk's early struggles (.170/.259/.170 slash line).

  • Blue Jays' Nate Pearson: Sharp in Sunday's win

    Pearson struck out the side in a perfect ninth inning Sunday during a 5-0 win over the Rockies.

    It wasn't a high-leverage spot, but Pearson still mowed down the heart of Colorado's order on 16 pitches (10 strikes). The right-hander has been impressive to begin the season, posting a 0.00 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB through 6.1 innings as he adjusts to a relief role, but until he starts being entrusted with more responsibility, his fantasy value with be limited -- Pearson has zero wins, holds or saves in six appearances.
