Happily, the 2015 season is finally here, and the Triple Play is back again for your reading entertainment.

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 Place Brett Cecil on 15 Day DL, Recall Steve Delabar

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...
