Blue Jays: Ross Stripling and Jordan Romano head to the injured list

A pair of Toronto Blue Jays pitchers head to the injured list (IL) as Ross Stripling and Jordan Romano find themselves on the 10-day injured list with separate arm issues.

Thursday Bantering: Kay to start, Stripling to IL

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Middle of the opening month and the Blue Jays are about the use their 8th starter (if you consider Phelps a starter). Anthony Kay gets added to the roster to make tonight’s start. Ross Stripling goes on the IL. He couldn’t get loose before yesterday’s game. They are hoping he won’t be out any longer than the 10 days. Kay makes his first start since September 2019 (he’ll be wearing 42), after being in the pen last year. I’ve been saying that I’d rather Kay in the rotation than Roark and now the Jays are saying it too. Roark and...

Who’s Hot, Who’s Cold: Blue Jays Batters

Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports Taking a look at the Jays offense over the first two weeks of the season. Two weeks in, the Blue Jays are 6-6, second place in the AL East, 3 games back of the Red Sox. On the offensive side, we’ve averaged 4.50 runs per game, slightly below league average of 4.61. Not exactly what we were expecting. We are tied for third in home runs, with 16. in OPS+ they sit at 96. Hot Bo Bichette: Started all 12 gamed. Hitting .327/.358/.653. 16 hits, 4 doubles, 4 home runs, 2 steals (halfway to his career high), 2 walks and 13 strikeouts....

The Blue Jays have hit the road and will play the Royals on Jackie Robinson Day in Kansas City, the home of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum! The baseball game is set to get underway at 8:10 ET. Blue Jays’ Starter I have yet to see an official announcement, but this start might as well go to Tanner Roark. Roark has struggled so far this year, and officially was moved to the bullpen after his Sunday start was rained out. But he hasn’t pitched out of the bullpen since then, so...

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has had a great start to the 2021 season for the Blue Jays, and he’s hitting the ball as hard as anyone in baseball.

Bo Bichette hits walk-off homer, Jays beat Yankees

Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports Yankees 4 Blue Jays 5 (walk-off) When that ball came off Bo Bichette’s bat, I thought it was a popup to the outfield, but he got more of it than I figured. Gotta love a walk-off homer. Two home runs on the day for Bichette. He’s been locked in the last few days. It seemed like one of those games of mistakes: Fly ball to the wall in right that Josh Palacios, for whatever reason, decided he couldn’t catch. It turned out to be costly. A runner on first and one-out, it would have been the second out and TJ Zeuch struck out the next...

However, he is now headed to the Injured List […] Blue Jays: Depth of the bullpen about to be tested - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community

Blue Jays: Weighing the long-term vs. the short-term with defence

If the Blue Jays wanted to improve their infield defence right now they might consider shuffling some positions around. That said, it’s not all about right now. It’s certainly too early to overreact to what we’ve seen in over the 11 games this season, but there’s no denying that that there are a few glaring […] Blue Jays: Weighing the long-term vs. the short-term with defence - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - Toronto Blue Jays News, Rumors and Fan Community
