Clutch assist shows Sierra's arm is coachable

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Moises Sierra has a fine throwing arm, but he is new to the majors, called up from Class AAA Las Vegas on July 31. So surprise, surprise, he needs some refining. Ever since he was promoted, there seems to have been an obsession with the raw skills of the 23-year-old outfielder. Sure, his throws have been erratic at times, but it's not as if there...

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Moises Sierra loses ball in sun, falls to the ground (Video)

There is nothing more scary for a Major League Baseball outfielder than losing the ball in the sun or lights. Over the weekend, Toronto's Moises Sierra had a rather funny moment happen to him in a game against the Tampa Bay Rays. After Tampa's B.J. Upton hit a lazy fly ball, Moises lost sight on the ball at the Rogers Centre and hit the deck: (Courtesy of Sweater Punch)

Carlos Villanueva Keeps Rolling As Starter

For a little while, Toronto was showing the makings of a playoff contender. An excellent offense built around Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion and a surprisingly solid starting rotation built around Brandon Morrow kept the Blue Jays in games for the first half of the season. But the injuries piled up, particularly on the pitching end, prompting inquiries into record-setting injury...

Moises Sierra loses fly ball in lights; wisely curls up into a ball on the ground

Plays like these demonstrate why the Toronto Blue Jays are horrible and in last place. This fly ball could not have gotten any easier for outfielder Moises Sierra to catch, yet somehow he managed to turn a very routine play into the most ridiculous looking blunder of all time. Just days after masterfully gunning down a runner at [...]

12 losses in a row won't knock Romero from rotation

Things just are not improving for Toronto Blue Jays left-hander Ricky Romero. The left-hander, who at one time was 8-1 this season, lost his 12th consecutive decision Sunday when the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Blue Jays 9-4. Romero had pitched well in his previous start, Aug. 28 at Yankee Stadium, going seven innings while taking a 2-1 loss. However, he did not retire a batter in...

Rays use play at plate to outlast Blue Jays

TORONTO (AP) -- Matt Joyce homered and had three RBIs, Ryan Roberts also connected and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-4 on Saturday. For the second straight day, the game ended with the potential tying run thrown out at home plate. This time, Colby Rasmus singled to center off Fernando Rodney, but catcher Jose Molina hauled in a high throw from B.J. Upton and blocked...
