BRETT CECIL RUMORS & GOSSIP

Brett Cecil For Closer

Brett Cecil should be the closer for the Blue Jays in 2015. Much has been made recently about the Toronto Blue Jays off-season and the lack of off-season additions in what people are referring to as ‘positions of need’. Going into the off-season, 2nd base and the bullpen were the two biggest needs to fill. More specifically, a back end of the bullpen arm. With Casey Janssen...

Blue Jays settle with Cecil, strike deal with Dirks

TORONTO (AP) Brett Cecil and the Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to a one-year contract worth $2,475,000, avoiding salary arbitration. Toronto also agreed Thursday to a minor league contract with outfielder Andy Dirks, who was claimed off waivers from Detroit on Oct. 31 and became a free agent when the Blue Jays failed to offer a major league deal by the Dec. 2 deadline.

Blue Jays Place Brett Cecil on 15 Day DL, Recall Steve Delabar

Last Friday, left-handed relief pitcher, Brett Cecil exited last Friday’s game in the eighth inning against Baltimore with groin tightness, according to RotoWorld.com. Cecil understandingly wanted to avoid being placed on the disabled list, but the 15 day trip was inevitable with similar injuries in the past.

MLB.com's David Wilson reports that Cecil limped off the field after throwing a third pitch to Chris Davis.

Blue Jays LHP Cecil builds off All-Star season

Brett Cecil walked into spring training last year with his career in limbo. The Toronto left-hander seemed far removed from his breakout season of 2010, when he posted a team-high 15 wins despite not making the 25-man roster out of camp. Instead, he was fresh off two years of disappointment. He'd bounced back and forth between the Blue Jays and Triple-A, going a combined 6-15 while...
