Drew Hutchison Needs His Good Fastball

Breakout candidates are often identified on the pitching side either on the strength of peripheral stats which portend improvement over more conventional numbers, a strong second half, or some demonstrative change in a pitch. Sometimes, the candidates fulfill expectations and make those who stumped for them look like geniuses. Most of the time, however, the […]

Seattle Mariners 2, Toronto Blue Jays 8: Blue Jays fly away from M’s, avoid the sweep

Another day, another disappointing Taijuan Walker start. The Mariners were denied the sweep of the Blue Jays today with a 4 run 5th inning that they were unable to overcome. Walker held his own until the middle of the 5th, when a missed pitch to Ryan Goins. From there, it all unraveled. The single bright spot today was the two runs scored by Kyle Seager. He hit his 2nd home run in...

Blue Jays Flashback: Adios, Mistake By The Lake

For anyone who went to Toronto Blue Jays games from 1977 to 1989, there are certainly a lot of fond memories from old Exhibition Stadium. Most of those would be about the teams, and individual players, and specific games, and very little if anything about the stadium itself. The “Mistake by the Lake” as it is now often referred to, was a horrible baseball stadium in a number...

Toronto Blue Jays: will Jose Reyes return fuel surge?

Jose Reyes In the past, the American League East division was the most predictable division in all of baseball. Either the Yankees or the Red Sox would capture the division, then the one that didn’t win the division would win the wild card. Now, it isn’t that simple. The Tampa Bay Rays, Baltimore Orioles, and Toronto Blue Jays have made a case over the past few years that there...

Aaron Sanchez’ Improving Pitch Mix

In the second half of last year, the Toronto Blue Jays called upon prized pitching prospect, Aaron Sanchez, to pitch out of their bullpen and boy did he ever impress. In 33 MLB innings, he only surrendered 14 hits and 4 earned runs along with 9 walks and 27 strikeouts. He relied on a sinker, fastball, curveball and occasional changeup mix, but last September, he essentially became...

Jeff Hoffman Hits 99 in Pro Debut

Toronto Blue Jays prospect Jeff Hoffman made his long-awaited professional debut last night, and while he hit a speed bump during his start, he showed more than enough of the front of the rotation potential the Blue Jays envisioned when they made the East Carolina product the 9th overall pick in last year’s draft, despite having undergone Tommy John surgery a month before. Pitching...

Blue Jays’ Prospect Chris Carlson is a Complete Outfielder

Toronto Blue Jays: Rough week leaves them in last

The Toronto Blue Jays have lost 6 of their 7 games this past week. They are now sitting in the last place, 5 games back in the American League East Division, which is not too bad of a deficit considering how poorly they have performed recently. The Blue Jays found a different way to lose every night last week, whether it was a bullpen collapse, a less than stellar performance from...

A Theory on Russell Martin’s Framing Numbers

Projection systems tend to look at reality a whole lot more soberly than us humans, who can fall madly in love with a player on the basis of aesthetic appeal alone. That’s why most offseason columns here at FanGraphs reviewing free-agent acquisitions tend to damper down instead of ramp up excitement. So it is a […]

The Blue Jays offense is thriving, despite rotation and youth scuffling

The Toronto Blue Jays entered 2015 fully embracing a youth movement. General manager Alex Anthopoulos has a history of sticking with out of option veterans, so it was refreshing to see him stick with the 25 best players for once. The Jays entered the season with a franchise high six rookies on their 25-man roster. These rookies weren’t here to sit and watch, they were going...
