|Blue Jays | Miguel Castro in low-leverage situations|
Tue, 28 Apr 2015 15:09:36 -0700
Toronto Blue Jays RP Miguel Castro, who was removed from the closer role, will be used in low-leverage situations for the time being in order to regain his footing. RPs Aaron Loup and Roberto Osuna will take over as the primary options for the seventh and eighth innings in front of RP Brett Cecil. "He's not polished off yet, he's so inexperienced, and to be fair to the kid, early on he was big for us," manager John Gibbons argued. "So back him off, build him up and get him back in there. Nobody goes through this game without getting hit around a little bit. To think a 20-year-old kid won't, that just doesn't happen."
Fantasy Tip: Hopefully you held onto Cecil if you owned him after he was demoted from the ninth-inning role early in the season. Aside from AL-only leagues, Castro is a candidate to let go to the waiver wire while he regains his footing and confidence.

|Blue Jays | Roberto Osuna could undergo Tommy John surgery|
Sat, 11 May 2013 09:34:46 -0700
Toronto Blue Jays P Roberto Osuna (elbow), currently pitching for Class A Lansing, left his most recent outing because of right elbow discomfort and is in danger of needing Tommy John surgery. A visit to Dr. James Andrews revealed that Osuna had a torn ulnar collateral ligament. General manager Alex Anthopoulos said he would be allowed to play catch in a few days and said the situation is "basically rest and rehab," but if Osuna experiences additional flare-ups in the next few weeks, he could require surgery.
