Buehrle still winless vs Yankees in over a decade

NEW YORK (AP) Mark Buehrle took a few steps off the mound, turned around and didn't bother to watch Jacoby Ellsbury's home run sail deep to right field. He's seen this all too often. Buehrle lost his 12th straight decision to the New York Yankees, a winless streak that's over a decade after the Toronto Blue Jays fell 5-3 Friday night for their season-worst sixth...

Blue Jays-Yankees Preview

The Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees hoped more would be at stake than second place, but the AL East rivals have faded from the playoff chase leading up to this series.

The visiting Blue Jays will try to avoid a fifth consecutive loss Thursday night when R...

Blue Jays plan to extend qualifying offer to Melky, hope to keep him

Melky Cabrera can double his salary if he desires. The Blue Jays have decided to extend him a qualifying offer, which is expected to be in the range of $15 million to $16 million this winter. That would almost precisely double his salary, as Cabrera signed a $16 million, two-year deal with Toronto two winters ago. Word from someone familiar with the Blue Jays' thinking is that...

MLB to review Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman's pitch at Caleb Joseph's head

Toronto right-hander Marcus Stroman’s pitch near the head of Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph will be reviewed today by Major League Baseball for possible discipline.

Marcus Stroman should be suspended for throwing at Caleb Joseph’s head

Last night’s Orioles-Jays game featured some seriously stupid and bush league garbage from Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman. The video below lays it all out, but basically Stroman threw a ball behind the head of Orioles catcher Caleb Joseph. Why? Apparently because Joseph inadvertently — and it couldn’t be anything but inadvertent — stepped on Jose Reyes‘ fingers during...

Adam Lind, Edwin Encarnacion power Blue Jays past Rays

Adam Lind has spent a lot of time this season celebrating other people’s home runs. Most often, it’s been Jose Bautista or Edwin Encarnacion getting all the love in the dugout after another baseball leaves the yard. On Saturday, Lind found himself on the receiving end. With nearly three months separating him from his previous home run, Lind had almost forgotten the routine...

Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar stakes claim for 2015

Pillar has made headlines all week long, hitting .500 over the last five games. In the bigger picture, he and Anthony Gose have become a platoon option as Colby Rasmus heads for free agency.

MLB Rumors: Examining Melky Cabrera's free agency

The Toronto Blue Jays are 10 games out of the AL East title and three and a half games out of a very tough AL wild-card race, so losing one of their top outfielders in the last three weeks of the season is barely a story. However, that outfielder is soon-to-be free agent Melky Cabrera and he could be heading into a market where offense is largely lacking.#455184772 / gettyimages...
