Blue Jays-Indians, Game 4 Notes

By David Laurila

PUBLISHED: Oct 19, 2016, 8:00 am EDT

Much has been made of Cleveland’s bullpen usage during the postseason. The attention has been focused primarily on two things: Terry Francona’s willingness to deviate from traditional relief roles, and the lights-out performances of Cody Allen and Andrew Miller. Not much has been said about the limited looks hitters have been getting against Indians pitchers. […]

Sunday Notes: Jays’ Harris, Irish Conlon, Quirky Records, Otero, more

By David Laurila

PUBLISHED: Jun 5, 2016, 7:00 am EDT

Jon Harris had a rocky outing a week ago. After allowing just one run over his previous 32 innings — an unearned run, to boot — the Blue Jays pitching prospect was kicked around for eight runs in a loss to South Bend. The reason for his poor performance was as much mental as it […]

[Buehrle] told me, ‘Listen, if I hit the glove, it doesn’t matter what pitch it is. ’ I told myself, ‘Maybe I should try that.’

Liam Hendriks on his Evolution to Blue Jays Bullpen Stud

By David Laurila

PUBLISHED: Oct 9, 2015, 12:30 pm EDT

Liam Hendriks bombed as a starter. Pitching almost exclusively in that role prior to this season, he went 3-15 with a 5.92 ERA. The ineffectiveness turned him into a nomad. The 26-year-old Australian was property of five organizations – including Toronto twice – from December 2013 to October 2014. This year, he bolstered the Blue […]

Sunday Notes: Melancon, Anthopoulos, Tracking Pitches, more

By David Laurila

PUBLISHED: Sep 20, 2015, 8:00 am EDT

Mark Melancon has 47 saves this season – a franchise record – and 96 since coming to Pittsburgh three years ago. In 214 games with the Pirates, he has a 1.75 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP. Those numbers must seem unfathomable to Red Sox fans. In 2012, Melancon came out of the Boston bullpen 41 […]

Sunday Notes: Stroman; Kaat, Costas & Players on Flood and Free Agency, Smoltz Trade

By David Laurila

PUBLISHED: Aug 3, 2014, 8:00 am EDT

Marcus Stroman has all the looks of an ace in the making. The 23-year-old Toronto Blue Jays righthander has won seven of his first nine big-league decisions and has a 3.03 ERA and a 2.97 FIP. Remove six-and-a-third relief innings from the equation and his ERA is 2.12. Drafted 22nd overall in 2012 out of […]
