By Craig Calcaterra

Behold! The new all-dirt infield at Rogers Centre

By Craig Calcaterra

Published: Apr 8, 2016, 3:35 pm EDT

We wrote about this a month or two ago when it was announced, but tonight is the debut of the new-look infield at Rogers Centre. Isn’t that pretty? All dirt. No sliding pits. As of now there are no sliding pits in baseball. It marks the first time since June of 1970, when the Reds […]

By Craig Calcaterra

When Drew Storen was acquired from the Washington Nationals, most expected that he would be the new Blue Jays closer. Nope:  Blue Jays manager John Gibbons announced Wednesday morning that Roberto Osuna will be the team’s closer to begin the 2016 season.

Jesus Montero claimed off waivers by the Toronto Blue Jays

By Craig Calcaterra

Published: Mar 28, 2016, 3:16 pm EDT

The Blue Jays just announced that they have claimed Jesus Montero off waivers from the Mariners. Interesting move, I suppose. Montero, 26, struggled in spring training. He had a disappointing 2012-15 as well, at least at the big league level. Still, in baseball, if you were a prospect once it’s hard for people not to think […]
