Anthony Gose is getting a chance to show that he can be the Toronto Blue Jays' left fielder next season. He eventually will be a major league center fielder, his usual position. Gose has the arm to play right field, but that position belongs to Jose Bautista when the slugger returns in spring training after undergoing season-ending wrist surgery. Gose also has the speed to be a leadoff hitter. So the Blue Jays are giving Gose frequent starts in left field in September to make an assessment about if he can open next season there with Toronto. "That's exactly what it is, for us to get as accurate of a read as we can and give him time in innings played at that position," manager John Farrell said. "Sure, there's a direct view of him in that position." Gose went 1-for-3 Tuesday in Toronto's 4-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles. He also reached first on an error on a sacrifice bunt in the seventh because of his speed. In 20 games since his ...

Blue Jays need veterans in clubhouse

The Blue Jays need some adults in the room. Shortstop Yunel "Eye Black" Escobar isn't the only issue, merely the most obvious. Talk to people who know the Jays well, and they'll tell you that catcher J.P. Arencibia and third baseman Brett Lawrie walk a fine line between confidence and know-it-all arrogance. Center fielder Colby Rasmus, meanwhile, is self-assured...

Inside Edwin Encarnacion’s HR season

Looking at the 2012 Toronto Blue Jays, it certainly can be considered a disappointment. A team that was expected to contend for the AL East has not done so. As they currently sit at 67-86, they have had little bright spots. One has definitely been the production of designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion. He has hit .282, 41, 105 kind of coming out of nowhere to produce as well as any...

Blue Jays' Romero snaps 13-decision losing streak

Three Blue Jays droughts ended Monday: Toronto won the second game of a doubleheader, 9-5 over the Orioles in Baltimore, to snap its seven-game losing string. J.P. Arencibia drove in five runs in the nightcap, going 3-for-3 with a grand slam and a sacrifice fly. He had not hit driven in a run since July 24, the day before he suffered a fractured right hand that kept him on the...

Toronto Blue Jays: Romero finally gets a win

After getting swept back-to back by playoff contenders, the Toronto Blue Jays had another hurdle to climb as they faced the Baltimore Orioles who are also a contender. What made it worse, they would have to play a double-header against the Orioles. The Orioles jump out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the fourth inning in game one when Adam Jones hit a two run homer. Ryan Flaherty...

Blue Jays 4, Orioles 0

Aaron Laffey and five relievers combined on a six-hitter as the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles for the second straight game, 4-0 on Tuesday night. Laffey (4-6) allowed five singles in 5 2-3 innings and won his first game since Aug. 5. He had been winless in his previous six starts. He neither walked nor struck out a batter. Baltimore began the day 1 1-2 games behind...
