The Toronto Blue Jays likely have no hope of salvaging this season, but as the injuries heal, they will get a better idea of could have been and what will be if they keep the team together.  Brandon Morrow will soon be re-joining the team as he progresses with his rehab.  Morrow is throwing and will be finishing a minor league rehab assignment soon. Brandon Morrow threw 40-pitches in bullpen today. He's scheduled to pitch in a game in Dunedin. #bluejays — Barry Davis (@SNBarryDavis) June 14, 2013 Morrow has been on the DL since the beginning of June with forearm tightness.   The injury was not considered to be serious, so the hope was that he could return within the minimum 15 days.  That may still happen, but even if it doesn't Morrow's return will be sooner rather than later.  Barring any setbacks of course. Blogging for Susie Morrow has been with the Blue Jays for four seasons now.  Last year, he had what many hoped would be a breakout season.  Morrow started 21 games and posted a 2.96 ERA.  This season prior to the injury, Morrow was 2-3 with a 5.63 ERA.  Much of his struggles could have been related to the forearm injury. The Blue Jays put together a roster this offseason that had many picking them as the favorites to win the World Series.  So far, Toronto has fallen well short of that expectation.  They are currently 30-36 and in last place in the American League East.

Romero solid in victory over Pawtucket

Ricky Romero is certainly facing an uphill battle. The former All-Star is biding his time in Triple A Buffalo trying to prove to everyone he still has what it takes. On Friday, he sure made everyone took notice. Friday night was the second game of the new and improved Ricky Romero. In a recent article by John Lott of the National Post, Romero said he was "ditching" his...

Toronto Blue Jays: Chien-Ming Wang has a mediocre debut

Chien-Ming Wang Chien-Ming Wang had a mediocre start on the mound for the Toronto Blue Jays as he made his debut with the team earlier this week against the Chicago White Sox.  In 7.1 innings pitched, Wang gave up 10 hits, five earned runs, three walks, and struck out two batters.  However, Wang was still able to keep the Jays in the game. At the top of the ninth inning, with two...

The Bloom Is Off Brett Lawrie’s Rose

In 150 at-bats back in 2011, Brett Lawrie captured our attention and imagination. “If he could hit nine homers in such a short time, Lawrie could have 30-homer potential over the course of a full season,” is likely a sentence you read before the 2012 season. It’s probably a sentence I wrote, as a matter of fact. In the season and a half since though, Lawrie has hit just 16...

Munenori Kawasaki Signs Autographs And Sings O’Canada For Fans

Toronto Blue Jays fan favourite Munenori Kawasaki signs autographs for fans and then admits he is now a “canuck” before belting out a rendition of the Canadian National anthem for fans.

Flying with the Blue Jays in Toronto, the New York Yankees will regret not promoting Chien-Ming Wang

Fanning five and only allowing five hits over seven scoreless innings, Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Chien-Ming Wang stifled Rangers batters on Sunday in Arlington, Texas. After opting out of Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the 33-year-old Wang (1-0, 3.14 ERA) signed a one-year contract worth $500,000 last week to become a Blue Jay. Impressing with the New York Yankees affiliate before...

A Father and Son Past Time

On this father’s day, I find myself reflecting on the most influential role model in my life and the great past time that he and I shared together.  Like many youths, I had aspirations of playing major league baseball, a train that I rode as far as I could before the harsh realization that I was not going to be the next Gary Carter or Roberto Alomar. My father was there every...

Is It Time To Buy Adam Lind?

Adam Lind followed up a sublime 2011 campaign with one of the biggest flops of all time. After hitting 26 homers in 2011, he hit only 11 in 2012, and he only scored 28 runs while knocking in a measly 45. Injury clearly had something to do with it, as he only got 353 plate appearances in 2012. Regardless, Lind entered the 2013 fantasy baseball season with an ADP of the 44th first...

Blue Jays push back Josh Johnson due to blister

Josh Johnson was originally scheduled to pitch against the Texas Rangers on Saturday, but the Toronto Blue Jays have decided to push him back a day due to a blister that has developed on his right middle finger, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com.

Yankeetorial: Run, everybody. This is the End. The Yankalypse is here, the Ying of Wang is upon us.

History tells us that these things happen to empires. The Mayans disappeared. The Spanish Armada sank. Springsteen put out Devils and Dust. The Yankees, the mightiest dynasty in sports - (after the Chinese Ping-Pong team of the 1970s), have collapsed. This is not a drill. Make your way to the exits. Women and children first. We practiced for this, people. We tracked this storm...

Blue Jays 6, Rangers 1

Adam Lind and Colby Rasmus both hit two-run homers and the Toronto Blue Jays won their fourth game in a row, beating the sliding Texas Rangers 6-1 on Saturday.

Rockies-Blue Jays Preview

In their return home, the Toronto Blue Jays will seek to extend their longest win streak in two seasons while helping Josh Johnson register his first victory with the club.

After dropping the opener to a six-game trip,...

Blue Jays beat Rangers 3-1 on Encarnacion hit

Edwin Encarnacion hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the eighth inning and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Texas Rangers 3-1 on Thursday night.
