Blue Jays Claim Justin Smoak

Details By Dave Cameron

Published: Oct 28, 2014, 3:05 pm EDT

The Blue Jays have have a strong recent track record of taking failed hitters and turning them into franchise cornerstones. In 2008, they traded minor league catcher Robinzon Diaz to Pittsburgh for Jose Bautista, then watched him turn into Joey Bats. In 2009, Edwin Encarnacion was one of three players they acquired from the Reds […]

The Fascinating Free Agency of Melky Cabrera

Details By Mike Petriello

Published: Sep 10, 2014, 10:00 am EDT

Melky Cabrera‘s season ended on Friday with a broken finger. Normally, “team headed for 22nd straight year out of the playoffs loses second-best outfielder for the final three weeks” isn’t much of a story, but this situation is a little different. Cabrera is about to be a free agent in what looks to be a terrible […]

Check out some recent versions of this series with Dilson Herrera, Jorge Soler and Rusney Castillo (though he’s still in the minors). I made the cutoff for a write-up a 50 Future Value, meaning a projected peak role of 8th/9th inning reliever, #4 starter or low-end everyday player. Take a look at recent prospect...

Colby Rasmus, Enigma

Details By Drew Fairservice

Published: Aug 27, 2014, 9:00 am EDT

The Toronto Blue Jays season is a two-part story. What began as a pleasant surprise quickly descended into a lucid, waking nightmare. Two Blue Jays’ outfielders heading into free agency embody each of those characteristics. While Melky Cabrera is putting together a brilliant platform season before heading to free-agency, Colby Rasmus seems to have spent all […]

Game Pace and the Mark Buehrle Effect

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Aug 22, 2014, 4:23 pm EDT

We’re talking about pace-of-game again, in light of the recent vote to identify the next commissioner. Baseball games are taking longer and longer, with replay and constant shifting only adding to the length, and while certain fans believe it’s no issue because that’s just the beauty of baseball, this is one of those areas where […]

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

Details 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 […]

Aaron Sanchez and the Trevor Rosenthal Experiment

Details By Blake Murphy

Published: Jul 18, 2014, 9:00 am EDT

On Thursday night, preseason consensus top-50 prospect Aaron Sanchez made his first appearance of the season out of the bullpen for the Buffalo Bisons, the Triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. Sanchez’s move to the pen is notable for several reasons, even though he already had 14 relief appearances on his minor league resume (though […]

Sunday Notes: Baker’s Books, Barney’s Leather, Buehrle’s Bullets & More

Details By David Laurila

Published: Jul 6, 2014, 8:00 am EDT

John Baker isn’t a cookie-cutter catcher in the mold of a Yogi Berra or a Crash Davis. He doesn’t read comic books or converse in cliches. The Chicago Cubs backstop is a deep thinker who sees parallels between pitchers and a character in American Psycho. Baker attended Cal Berkeley, but the foundation for his pitch-calling […]
