Blue Jays: Yusei Kikuchi struggles early and the rotation question ahead

The starting rotation for the Toronto Blue Jays has been all over the place depending on who is taking the mound.

Blue Jays: Teoscar Hernandez back in Silver Slugger contention

Most of the Toronto Blue Jays talks lately has been around the Trade Deadline and about who the club had added, as well as who they did not receive. Prior to the deadline chatter, it was also about the emergence of Matt Chapman and before that it was Alek Manoah’s All-Star appearance and his Cy […] Blue Jays: Teoscar Hernandez back in Silver Slugger contention - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Saturday Bantering: Bichette and Springer Back In the Lineup

Saturday Bantering: Bichette and Springer Back In the Lineup

Photo by Mark Blinch/ And Castillo Down, Thornton Up The Jays made a roster move: Max Castillo was sent back to Buffalo. Trent Thornton is back in Toronto. I'm not sure why, I liked Castillo, but Thornton has been good this year. Trent has a 4.38 ERA in 26 games this year. But then Max has a 3.05 ERA and 20 strikeouts in 20.2 innings. Perhaps it is because Max won’t be pitching until they know if Manoah can make his next start. The team says Alek Manoah is feeling better today. Over at Sportsnet, Jeff Blair has a story on Bo Bichette playing daily. The...

Blue Jays get a scary reminder of the need for more SP depth

The Blue Jays may have dodged on bullet on Friday night after Alek Manoah was hit with a comebacker, but either way it should reinforce something that they already know. This team needs more depth in their rotation. I’m sure I’m not the only fan that panicked a bit at the prospect of Manoah being […] Blue Jays get a scary reminder of the need for more SP depth - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Good start from Manoah, Jays Beat Red Sox

Good start from Manoah, Jays Beat Red Sox

Photo By Winslow Townson/ Blue Jays 4 Red Sox 1 That one wasn’t the laugh riot that yesterday’s game was. Alek Manoah didn’t seem to have his best stuff early, and, for a moment there, it appeared that he wasn’t 100% healthy. I really thought he was going to be or should be, taken out of the game. The trainer came out to talk to him, and it seemed like he had pain in his shoulder. But he gutted it out. And he seemed to get better as the game went on. He went 6 innings, allowed 7 hits, no walks, and 7 strikeouts. He gave up just one run on a Bobby Dalbeck home...

Wednesday Bantering: All-Star Notes

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ The Jays don’t play until Friday, which gives us a couple more days to relax before panicking when they don’t score in the first inning. We do have a little bit of Jays' news this morning. Serio Romo has cleared waivers and has been assigned to Buffalo. I’m kind of surprised that he would take that assignment. I figured he would rather retire than go to the minors. We got a pretty good All-Star game. Of course, to me Alek Manoah was the star of stars. Three ‘punchies’ while miced up. And then after the game: Striking out the...
