Devon Travis Gets His Shot in Toronto

Details By Chris Mitchell

Published: Apr 1, 2015, 2:30 pm EDT

For the second year in a row, the Blue Jays headed into spring training with no clear second baseman. Last year, their second base competition featured Ryan Goins, Maicer Izturis, Munenori Kawasaki, Chris Getz and Steve Tolleson. Unsurprisingly, this quintet ranked last in our preseason, second base positional power rankings with a collective projection of 0.1 WAR. Nonetheless, the Jays […]

The Latest R.A. Dickey Experiment

Details By August Fagerstrom

Published: Apr 1, 2015, 12:00 pm EDT

R.A. Dickey‘s entire career has, essentially, been one giant experiment. You know the story by now. Dickey was drafted by the Texas Rangers back in 1996, and took a signing bonus for nearly $800,000 less than what was originally offered after team doctors discovered he just didn’t even have an ulnar collateral ligament in his […]

Reintroducing Daniel Norris

Details By Owen Watson

Published: Mar 23, 2015, 11:13 am EDT

Most people know Daniel Norris as the bearded guy who lives out of his VW van. Despite the fact that he prefers the coast instead of down by the river, it’s still a pretty unique background, and that’s not all: Norris also happens to throw baseballs, and do it exceptionally well. Those two descriptions...

Miguel Castro, Roberto Osuna and the A-Ball Jump

Details By Chris Mitchell

Published: Mar 16, 2015, 1:30 pm EDT

The Toronto Blue Jays suffered a crippling blow when 23-year-old Marcus Stroman ruptured his ACL during fielding drills last week. Prior to Stroman’s injury, Toronto’s final rotation spot was slated to go to the winner of a competition featuring Daniel Norris, Aaron Sanchez and Marco Estrada. Presumably, at least one of the losers would...

A Year Without Marcus Stroman

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Mar 10, 2015, 4:39 pm EDT

This time, at least, it’s a little different. Yu Darvish sustained an injury while pitching. Cliff Lee sustained an injury while pitching. Gavin Floyd, Masahiro Tanaka, Jose Fernandez, Matt Harvey, so many of the others — they sustained their injuries while pitching. Marcus Stroman sustained an injury while fielding. His throwing arm is completely fine. […]

Marcus Stroman Tears ACL, Out for Season

Details By Dave Cameron

Published: Mar 10, 2015, 2:55 pm EDT

What a lousy week for pitchers. Yu Darvish, Cliff Lee, and Gavin Floyd have been felled by their arms, and now Marcus Stroman will join them on the disabled list after tearing the ACL in his left knee during practice today. Surgery to repair a torn ACL will cause him to miss the entire 2015 […]

The Top-Five Blue Jays Prospects by Projected WAR

Details By Carson Cistulli

Published: Mar 9, 2015, 2:05 pm EDT

Earlier today, Kiley McDaniel published his consummately researched and demonstrably authoritative prospect list for the Toronto Blue Jays. What follows is a different exercise than that, one much smaller in scope and designed to identify not Toronto’s top overall prospects but rather the rookie-eligible players in the Jays’ system who are most ready to produce […]

Russell Martin, MLB Catchers Have Stopped Stealing

Details By Craig Edwards

Published: Mar 9, 2015, 2:00 pm EDT

Catchers are generally associated with stopping stolen bases on the defensive side. Last season, catchers stopped stealing bases on the offensive side as well. Russell Martin, Carlos Ruiz, and Jonathan Lucroy tied for the Major League Baseball lead for stolen bases by a catcher in 2014 with four. Catchers are not known for their prowess […]

Published: Mar 2, 2015, 2:15 pm EST

With the Red Sox recently adding Yoan Moncada to the fold last week (details and audio interview), the biggest international domino has fallen and now there’s more certainty for teams and agents going forward about what teams can spend on July 2nd. In an early draft of this article, I was going to point out that MLB […]
