Blue Jays | Aaron Sanchez, more coming up

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 11:30:38 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez will be called up Tuesday, July 22, along with INF Ryan Goins and RP Esmil Rogers. Sanchez was recently moved to the bullpen during his brief time at Triple-A Buffalo and probably will serve the same role in the bigs. Goins might not be there long because Steve Tolleson will be on paternity leave. Rogers will serve as a swingman reliever.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez could be worth an AL-only stash in case he earns a bigger role, but there's not much immediate value here.

Blue Jays | Scratch Marcus Stroman at Triple-A

Fri, 30 May 2014 14:06:45 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman was scratched from his start for Triple-A Buffalo Friday, May 30. There are no health issues, according to manager Gary Allenson, and the reasoning has not been made public. SP Esmil Rogers is starting in Stroman's place.

Fantasy Tip: Hmmmm ... is this a sign that he's either joining the big club? Perhaps, in a long shot, is he being shipped to the Chicago Cubs for Jeff Samardzija? Stay tuned for more.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison, Dustin McGowan win rotation spots

Wed, 26 Mar 2014 09:08:57 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SPs Drew Hutchison and Dustin McGowan won the final two spots in the team's starting rotation to begin the year. McGowan will start the home opener against the New York Yankees April 4. McGowan has pitched in only 30 major league games, with 25 relief outings last season, since he had right shoulder surgery in 2008. Ps Todd Redmond, Esmil Rogers and Jeremy Jeffress will work out of the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison is an up-and-coming pitching prospect that's worth a gamble late in deep mixed leagues. Due to McGowan's injury history, he's not worth the headache, and he might wind up being best served pitching out of the bullpen because of his limited innings since 2008.

Blue Jays | J.A. Happ feeling better, rotation spot in jeopardy

Fri, 14 Mar 2014 16:27:44 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ (back) allowed a hit and a walk while striking out two in three innings in a minor league game Friday, March 14, and he said his back is feeling better. "I wanted to jump right back in, but they thought this was a good idea, and it turned out to be a good idea," Happ said of his brief absence to rest the injury. "I'm ready to go." The team is being cautious with Happ, and they'll make him earn a rotation spot in competition with the likes of SPs Esmil Rogers, Todd Redmond, Marcus Stroman and Ricky Romero.

Fantasy Tip: As Chisholm notes, it appears that Drew Hutchison has one of the remaining two spots locked up. He's a sleeper pick for AL-only managers. Happ has the experience, but Toronto may prefer health and youth from Stroman. Stay tuned.

Blue Jays | Drew Hutchison has inside track

Thu, 13 Mar 2014 07:43:17 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison is in the lead for a rotation spot, according to manager John Gibbons. "Nobody's pitched better this spring than Hutch," he said. "The way he's pitching he's been dominating." Hutchison is likely in even if J.A. Happ (back) is healthy. Marcus Stroman remains in the mix for replacing Happ, but Gibbons wants prospect to tighten his command. Ricky Romero pitched four innings Wednesday, March 12, and apparently impressed Toronto brass, and he can't be counted out yet. Esmil Rogers and Todd Redmond are also in consideration.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison could be a decent gamble in deep mixed leagues and should be in line for more AL-only confidence. Stroman should get a few starts this season, at least, and warrants a stash. Romero is worth watching.

Blue Jays | J.A. Happ battling sore back

Thu, 06 Mar 2014 12:40:51 -0800

Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ (back) is battling a sore back in camp, leaving two rotation spots now up for grabs between Happ and SPs Marcus Stroman, Drew Hutchison, Kyle Drabek, Todd Redmond and Esmil Rogers. Happ was roughed up in his first two spring starts as a result. A lowered arm slot for Happ this spring hasn't helped his command issues, either. "We'll watch him, we'll evaluate it. Right now, I don't think he's on schedule to miss any time. Maybe he gets moved back a day or two, but from what I understand, it would be no more than two or three days that he would be moved back, if that happens," general manager Alex Anthopoulos said. Redmond and Rogers are both out of minor league options.

Fantasy Tip: It seems as though either Stroman or Hutchison will land one of the remaining open rotation spots. Which one takes it is anyone's guess, although Hutchison is probably the more polished prospect. Either one of them would be a nice speculative end-game selection in AL-only leagues.

Toronto Blue Jays SPs Esmil Rogers, Todd Redmond, Drew Hutchison, Kyle Drabek, Marcus Stroman, Sean Nolin, Dustin McGowan and Ricky Romero are all competing for the fifth rotation spot this spring, but manager John Gibbons said the team won't have a clear picture on who the favorites are until spring games begin.
