Toronto Blue Jays lefty J.A. Happ was released from a hospital Wednesday after being nailed by a line drive during Tuesday night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Happ was carted off the field after sustaining a head contusion and a laceration to his left ear when he was struck by a rocket hit by Desmond Jennings.
Happ was a sitting duck and he fell to the mound as two runs...
J.P. Arencibia hit a two-out, two-run homer in the ninth inning off Fernando Rodney and the Toronto Blue Jays completed their comeback from a seven-run deficit, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 8-7 on Monday night.
The last time Toronto rallied from at least seven runs down to win was June 5, 2007, when it overcame an 8-1 margin to beat Tampa Bay 12-11, STATS said.

And he didn't disappoint.Kelly, 33, may be owed a nice steak dinner from Tigers pitchers Anibal Sanchez after robbing a home run hit by Toronto's J.P. Arencibia.

During Spring Training last year, Toronto Blue Jays catcher JP Arencibia showed off his impression of ESPN baseball analyst Tim Kurkjian. This year, Arencibia reprised his impression of Kurkjian to lead off Baseball Tonight, and it was pretty solid once again, with Arencibia even calling himself "one of the finest, most well-rounded, good-looking catchers in the game"....
During the offseason there has been a lot of talk about the Mets and Blue Jays making a deal. On the surface it makes sense, as the Mets need outfielders and a catcher while the Blue Jays are looking for a front-end starter. The two teams seem to match up pretty well.
For me the problem comes in the catching department. Toronto has prospect Travis d’Arnaud, who if he can stay healthy...
Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia broke his right hand on a foul tip Wednesday night and is expected to miss six weeks.
Arencibia was hit during Oakland's eight-run second inning. He finished the inning, but Jeff Mathis pinch hit for him to start the bottom half.
