Is this the worst Toronto Blue Jays pitching staff ever?

By Michael Wray

PUBLISHED: May 17, 2015, 12:10 pm EDT

An interesting question came up on the most recent Jays Nest Podcast as a reader/listener wanted to know if the 2015 edition is the worst Toronto Blue Jays pitching staff ever. Shaun gave a good answer – that’s probably not something you can evaluate until the end of the season. I agree...

Fence Hopping: Why Miguel Castro should be on the Toronto Blue Jays Opening Day roster

By Michael Wray

PUBLISHED: Mar 19, 2015, 2:00 pm EDT

Six days ago, I opined the Toronto Blue Jays were crazy for considering right-handed pitching prospect Miguel Castro for their Opening Day roster. But after watching Castro dominate for 2.2 innings on Tuesday night against the New York Yankees, I’m starting to reconsider that bold stance. I like to think...

By Michael Wray

PUBLISHED: Mar 14, 2015, 8:00 am EDT

You wouldn’t know by looking at the box score but Aaron Sanchez pitched very well on Friday for the Toronto Blue Jays against the Baltimore Orioles. In what was his third start of spring training, Sanchez gave up five hits and two earned runs over three and one-third innings. However only...

Why the Toronto Blue Jays are crazy for considering Miguel Castro for Opening Day roster

By Michael Wray

PUBLISHED: Mar 13, 2015, 7:00 am EDT

Let’s get this out of the way first – I’m a big fan of Miguel Castro. I’ve been tracking his process since he debuted stateside in 2013 after tearing up the Dominican Summer League as an 18-year-old. Castro, now 20, has been the recipient of some major hype during this year’s...

How often should Marcus Stroman throw his sinker?

By Michael Wray

PUBLISHED: Feb 22, 2015, 8:00 am EST

In case you missed it, on Friday a fascinating piece of research by Matthew Murphy was published at the Hardball Times. Titled Are Groundball Pitchers Overrated?, Murphy’s examines why groundball-heavy pitchers as a group underperform not only their peripherals but also allow more runs than low groundball rate and average...

Kevin Pillar’s improved plate discipline led to second half success

By Michael Wray

PUBLISHED: Feb 17, 2015, 3:00 pm EST

When attempting to identify a trend in baseball, it’s always dangerous to use first and second half splits. They are arbitrary endpoints and don’t even measure the true “halfway” mark of a season. I’ve made this mistake before when it comes to Colby Rasmus, who posted strong first halves in...

The Toronto Blue Jays’ second baseman of the future

By Michael Wray

PUBLISHED: Jan 29, 2015, 8:00 am EST

With the offseason winding down, as currently constructed the Toronto Blue Jays have a hole at second base. This isn’t a new phenomenon for the Jays. In 2013 they were last (by a mile) in 2B fWAR with a -2.2 mark and had not only the worst production at the...

Is Michael Saunders deserving of an extension?

By Michael Wray

PUBLISHED: Jan 13, 2015, 9:30 am EST

When news broke in early December that outfielder Michael Saunders had been acquired by the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for left-handed pitcher J.A. Happ, I found myself rather ecstatic about the move. For many this signified a sad end of the road for Melky Cabrera, who has since moved...

Justin Smoak’s fly ball tendencies a good fit for Rogers Centre?

By Michael Wray

PUBLISHED: Nov 2, 2014, 2:11 pm EST

The Toronto Blue Jays’ front office has found themselves quite busy over the past few days, working the waiver wire, deciding on several player options and completing two trades. It’s still early in the offseason and it’s likely much will change when it comes to the Blue Jays roster between...
