Help is about to arrive for the Toronto Blue Jays. And they sure need it. Toronto is 5-16 in August after losing 3-2 in 11 innings Thursday as the Detroit Tigers completed a three-game sweep. The Blue Jays lost despite a superb start from lefty J.A. Happ, who lasted 7 1/3 innings, the first Blue Jays starter to go that deep into a game since Brandon Morrow pitched a two-hit shutout on June 6. Morrow is part of the help that is one the way. He is scheduled to pitch Saturday in Baltimore, his first major league start since June 11, when he lasted nine pitches before injuring his left oblique. Before Morrow pitches though, Jose Bautista is expected to be back in the lineup Friday. It would be his first major league action since July 16, when he injured his left wrist on a swing. Bautista homered twice Thursday night in a rehab game for Class AA New Hampshire. Yunel Escobar is scheduled to be back from paternity leave Friday. Adam Lind, on the disabled list due to a back inj...

MANCHESTER, NH - Jose Bautista wowed fans at New Delta Dental Stadium Thursday night, crushing a grand slam and solo shot in his only rehab stint with the Double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats. Going two-for-four with a walk and two bombs, there was no question his wrist looked just fine. He rejoined the team for Friday's game against the Baltimore Orioles.
As I watched the early innings of the first game against the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night, I thought the Toronto Blue Jays were going to lose the same way they lost on Sunday (Aug. 19) against the Texas Rangers. By a huge margin.
I had good reason to think that way. Jay’s starting pitcher, Ricky Romero had a terrible start in the early innings. He would end the night...
Stepping to the plate with a chance to become the 17th player in baseball history to hit four home runs in a game, Chris Davis had one thing in mind.

Davis didn't get that fourth homer, but three was quite enough to power the Baltimore Orioles to a 6-4 victory over the skidding Toronto...
