After an exciting win last night, the Blue Jays bid farewell to Mike Trout and the Angels for the season this afternoon as they look to split this 4 game series. Today’s game gets underway at 4:07 ET.

Blue Jays’ Starter

Pearce Steals the Show, Blue Jays Win!

The pitching was superb, aside from 1 mistake.

Blue Jays 4 - Angels 1

In a tense game that had it’s moments of frustration, Steve Pearce sent everyone home happy. With 2-on, 2-outs and a 2-2 count in the top of the 9th, Pearce hit a liner into the right field corner. Buck Martinez, in contrast of his usual willing of the ball to get out, was screaming “get down ball, get down”, but the ball had better ideas and cleared the fence for a 3-run home run.

You can't teach CLUTCH....

Blue Jays activate Marcus Stroman, place Aaron Sanchez on DL

The Blue Jays have reinstated right-hander Marcus Stroman from the disabled list and placed fellow righty Aaron Sanchez on the DL, retroactive to Friday, per a team announcement. Sanchez is dealing with a right index finger contusion.Stroman went on the DL on May 11 with right shoulder fatigue, which continued a rough start to the season for the 27-year-old. After establishing himself as an effective workhorse over the previous two seasons, during which he eclipsed the 200-inning campaign...

Jays Roster Moves: Stroman activated, Sanchez to DL

The headline says it all.

Marcus Stroman has been activated for tonight's game. Hopefully he will be more successful than he was before he went on the DL.

Aaron Sanchez has been put on the DL, which makes room for Marcus. Aaron has the finger contusion that knocked him out of his last start after the first Inning. I hoping he won't be out long.

Is there some rule that we can't have Aaron and Marcus healthy at the same time?

Jays Roster Moves: Garcia DL, Mayza Up

So another move.

Jaime Garcia has been put on the DL with a tender shoulder.

The Blue Jays called up To Mayza to take the roster spot.

The Jays are going to need a starter Tuesday night. I don't know about anyone else but I want Ryan Borucki. Course some I want that, it won't happen.

J.A. Happ and Marco Estrada doing the Blue Jays nothing but favours heading into the trade season

J.A. Happ and Marco Estrada Give J.A. Happ and Marco Estrada a lot of credit for how well they’ve been pitching lately (in Happ’s case, lately being the entire season).  Here are two veteran pitchers that understand all too well the chances of them being traded in the next little while are pretty good, and yet they’re doing everything possible to boost their trade value so that in future years this ball club stands a better chance of winning. Happ is already considered one of the...

Blue Jays’ Starter
