BLUE JAYS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Drew Hutchison (SP, TOR) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Mixed Leagues ANALYSIS: Hutchison has had an up-and-down year, but has really turned it on as of late with the exception of his most recent start  (@BAL, giving up 6 ER but K’ing 11). The 24-year-old lefty had tossed four straight quality starts prior to that, and has struck out […]

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...

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. In the sixth inning of the Orioles’ 5-2 win over the Blue Jays, Stroman threw a 92-mph fastball toward Joseph’s head that he ducked away from. In the previous inning, Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes contested that...

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...

Jose Bautista Keeping Blue Jays in Wild Card Race

The Toronto Blue Jays got off to a hot start in the 2014 season. One June 6 they owned a 38-24 record and enjoyed a six game lead in the American League East. As late as July 2 they were in sole possession of first place. However, things have unraveled from there. The Baltimore Orioles have all but clinched the division, while the Jays are clinging on to slim hopes in the Wild...

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.

The Fascinating Free Agency of Melky Cabrera

Melky Cabrera‘s season ended on Friday with a broken finger. Normally, “team headed for 22nd straight year out of the playoffs loses second-best outfielder for the final three weeks” isn’t much of a story, but this situation is a little different. Cabrera is about to be a free agent in what looks to be a terrible […]

WATCH: Melky Cabrera freaks over sound of thunder

During Wednesday night’s Blue Jays-Rays game at Tropicana Field, we saw something we don’t see too often at a domed stadium – a rain delay. Prior to the delay, a clap of thunder scared the bejeezus out of Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera. Yeah, I think I could watch that a time or two. As for the delay itself, it wasn’t technically a rain delay – it was caused by a block...
