  • Happ (elbow) to resume throwing soon
    J.A. Happ (elbow) could resume throwing in the next couple of days.

    Advice: Happ experienced discomfort while trying to throw a side session last Thursday, so he has been resting in recent days. He's feeling better, but there should be more clarity on a possible return date after he resumes throwing. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:17 am

  • Sanchez (finger) throws again Monday
    Aaron Sanchez (finger) threw for the third straight day on Monday.

    Advice: Sanchez has bounced back quickly from a minor procedure last week to remove part of the fingernail on his right middle finger. He won't return to the Jays' rotation this week as originally hoped, but he could throw a side session in the next couple of days. Mat Latos and Casey Lawrence will continue to fill in for Sanchez and J.A. Happ (elbow) in Toronto's rotation for now. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:10 am

  • Boyd fined for throwing at Sano on Sat.
    Matt Boyd was fined an undisclosed amount for Saturday's incident with Twins slugger Miguel Sano.

    Advice: Boyd was ejected from Saturday's game after throwing behind Sano. He managed to avoid a suspension, but Sano received a one-game suspension for "aggressive actions" which caused the benches to clear. He has appealed the ruling. Boyd will take his next turn in the rotation Friday against the White Sox. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:51 am
  • Kiermaier (illness) hitless in return
    Kevin Kiermaier (illness) went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts in his return to the lineup Monday against the Orioles.

    Advice: Kiermaier was limited to bench duties on Sunday after leaving early on Friday and Saturday due to illness, but he's starting to feel closer to normal now. The 27-year-old is batting .260/.345/.364 with one homer and four steals through 21 games to begin the year. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:26 am
  • Cozart has two hits, scores three runs Mon.
    Zack Cozart (wrist) went 2-for-3 with two walks and three runs scored in his return to action Monday against the Brewers.

    Advice: Cozart sat out Sunday's game due to some nagging soreness in his left wrist, but it appears that the rest did him some good. The 31-year-old is off to an excellent start this season, batting .386/.471/.684 with one homer, nine RBI, and a 12/10 K/BB ratio through 17 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:47 am
  • Matt Reynolds expected to join Mets
    Matt Reynolds is expected to join the Mets on Tuesday.

    Advice: No word yet on the corresponding roster move. Betsy Helfand of the Las Vegas Review-Journal notes that Reynolds has primarily been playing left field this season, so he could provide some insurance between the outfield and infield. The 26-year-old hit .225/.266/.416 with three homers and 13 RBI over 96 plate appearances with the Mets last season. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:30 am

  • Zack Greinke strikes out 11 Padres in win
    Zack Greinke fanned 11 while allowing one run over six innings Monday in a defeat of the Padres.

    Advice: Greinke has his ERA down to 2.93, and he's sporting a 31/6 K/BB ratio in 30 2/3 innings. Of course, it's helped a whole bunch that he's gotten to face the Padres twice in a row. Before that, he had a 4.32 ERA and a 14/5 K/BB ratio in 16 2/3 innings over three starts. Things will get a little more difficult with back-to-back starts against the Rockies coming up. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:11 pm
  • Jhouyls Chacin gives up seven runs
    Jhoulys Chacin was tagged for seven runs in six innings by the Diamondbacks on Monday.

    Advice: Taking one for the team, Chavez was sent back out for the sixth even after giving up a grand slam in the fifth that made the score 6-0 Diamondbacks. By start this year, Chacin has allowed nine, zero, four, zero and now seven runs. He's "due" for one of his good starts Sunday against the Giants, though that's mostly because the Giants aren't hitting. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:08 pm
  • Wil Myers hits three-run homer
    Wil Myers hit a three-run homer in a losing cause Monday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Myers has a hideous 22/2 K/BB ratio in 84 at-bats, but it hasn't stopped him from hitting .345 with five homers and 14 RBI. Like some other hitters, he's going for more flyballs than usual, with great success so far. That average should come way down, though. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:02 pm
  • Bud Norris notches second save
    Bud Norris recorded his second save Monday in the Angels' 2-1 win over the Jays.

    Advice: Norris gave up a single and a walk to start the inning, but he was able to strike out Chris Coghlan and induce a double-play ball from Devon Travis to end the game. Expect him to keep getting save chances until Cam Bedrosian returns. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:45 pm
    7:07 pm vs Oak
     
  • Russell Martin hits second homer
    Russell Martin went 2-for-4 and homered for the Jays' only run of the game Monday.

    Advice: Martin is 8-for-26 with a couple of homers in his last seven games, taking his average from .042 to .180. The two homers have been responsible for his only runs batted in of the year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:42 pm
  • Tyler Anderson gives up four runs to Nats
    Tyler Anderson yielded four runs in 5 2/3 innings Monday in a no-decision against the Nationals.

    Advice: Anderson is 0-for-5 turning in quality starts this year, and his ERA sits at 7.11. His 22/8 K/BB ratio in 25 1/3 innings isn't bad, but he's on thin ice at the moment. Assuming that he remains in the rotation -- a pretty good bet with Jon Gray on the disabled list -- he'll get the Diamondbacks next. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Blake Treinen gives up three runs in relief
    Blake Treinen gave up three runs and six hits in one-third of an inning Monday against the Rockies.

    Advice: We're not sure why Dusty Baker let his deposed closer give up six hits, but it cost the Nationals their chance of coming back in this one. Granted, the Nationals' pen is a little worn down after the weekend. Treinen, though, could have been pulled earlier. He now has a 9.82 ERA, and it's obvious he won't be closing again anytime soon. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:52 pm
  • Tony Wolters goes 3-for-4 in win
    Tony Wolters finished 3-for-4 with a couple of RBI against the Nationals in Monday's win.

    Advice: Wolters has been great with Tom Murphy out, hitting .351 in 37 at-bats. It's surprising that the Rockies haven't played him over Dustin Garneau more consistently (Garneau has 33 at-bats), given that he's the stronger defender and the far better hitter to date. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Anthony Rendon goes 3-for-4
    Anthony Rendon went 3-for-4 with an RBI against the Rockies on Monday.

    Advice: Rendon is still looking for his first homer, but he has pushed his average up to .246 after a 3-for-28 start. He's struck out just five times in his last 11 games after doing so nine times in the first seven. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Zack Cozart scratched with sore wrist
    Zack Cozart was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a sore left wrist.

    Advice: It's the same issue that cost him a couple games earlier this month. Jose Peraza has moved over to shortstop, Scooter Gennett will move from left field to second base and Patrick Kivlehan enters the lineup in left. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:54 am
  • Kevin Kiermaier sitting out on Sunday
    Kevin Kiermaier is absent from the Rays' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's just getting a breather. Steven Souza is starting in center field, while Shane Peterson is getting the call in right. The Rays also have Jesus Sucre at catcher over Derek Norris. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:47 am
  • Bud Norris nails down first save
    Bud Norris allowed a single in a scoreless ninth inning for his first save of the season Saturday against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Norris needed just six pitches in the tidy effort, throwing five for strikes, filling in rather admirably for the injured Cam Bedrosian (groin). If Norris continues to serve in the closer's role with Bedrosian on the shelf he would have some nice short-term fantasy appeal in AL-only play. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:51 pm

  • Aaron Sanchez (finger) resumes throwing
    Aaron Sanchez (finger) resumed throwing on Saturday.

    Advice: It was his first time throwing since undergoing a minor finger procedure on Monday. He threw from about 90 feet. The Blue Jays were hoping to have Sanchez back Thursday against the Cardinals but that seems like a long shot. Sanchez only threw fastballs during Saturday's session and might need a few days to expand his arsenal. The Blue Jays are extremely shorthanded right now with Sanchez, J.A. Happ (elbow), Josh Donaldson (calf) and Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) all on the shelf. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:58 pm

  • Matt Boyd ejected for throwing at Miguel Sano
    Matt Boyd was ejected from Saturday's game against the Twins after throwing behind Miguel Sano in the fifth inning.

    Advice: This was retaliation from earlier in the game when JaCoby Jones was struck in the face on a pitch by Justin Haley. Sano had words for Boyd after the brushback pitch and was quickly ejected himself as both benches cleared. Boyd had a mediocre day on the mound, yielding five hits, two runs and three walks in only 4 1/3 innings. He also tallied three strikeouts. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:02 pm
  • J.A. Happ (elbow) likely to miss second start
    J.A. Happ is likely to miss a second start after Thursday's side session didn't go as well as anticipated.

    Advice: The left-hander made 20 throws on Thursday but experienced discomfort in his pitching elbow. The club will now wait a few days for the inflammation to subside before Happ attempts to throw again. Mat Latos is starting in his place on Friday and is likely to occupy that spot in the rotation until he's able to return. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:37 pm

  • Wil Myers swats solo home run in victory
    Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Myers connected for a long solo home run off Patrick Corbin with two outs in the first inning. The dinger was his fourth of the month. After posting a breakout 2016 season, Myers is off to a brilliant start in 2017, working to a .373/.387/.686 triple-slash with 11 RBI and 11 runs scored over 67 at-bats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:55 pm
  • Happ (elbow) throws from 60 feet Thursday
    J.A. Happ (elbow) made 20 throws from a distance of 60 feet on Thursday.

    Advice: It was his first time throwing since he left his start last Sunday against the Orioles with inflammation in his left elbow. Happ was officially placed on the 10-day disabled list April 18, retroactive to April 17. He's hoping to only miss a turn or two in the Blue Jays' rotation. Mat Latos will fill his spot for the time being. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:32 am
    10-Day DL

  • Russell Martin getting day off Thursday
    Russell Martin is out of the Blue Jays' lineup Thursday afternoon against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Jarrod Saltalamacchia will start at catcher and hit seventh versus Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale. Martin owns a brutal .103/.271/.205 batting line in 48 plate appearances this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:09 am
  • Jhoulys Chacin goes eight scoreless in win
    Jhoulys Chacin shut out the Diamondbacks for eight innings to earn a victory Wednesday.

    Advice: Chacin allowed just three hits in improving to 2-2. He's gone without allowing a run twice in four starts, yet he's given up 13 runs his other two times out. That's why he's only an option in NL-only leagues. He's set to face Arizona again next time out. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:49 pm
  • Zack Greinke goes distance in loss
    Zack Greinke was a hard-luck loser after allowing one run in an eight-inning complete game Wednesday against the Padres.

    Advice: It's just Greinke's fourth complete game since the beginning of 2011. Of course, he wasn't facing much of an offense tonight. He allowed five hits, walked one and struck out six in the 96-pitch gem. We're still not overly excited about his early season performance. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:44 pm
  • Tyler Anderson takes third loss
    Tyler Anderson surrendered four runs -- two earned -- in five innings Wednesday in a loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Anderson has taken half of the Rockies' six losses and has a 7.32 ERA in his four starts. He didn't pitch terribly tonight, but the unearned runs were his own fault, as it was his error that led to them. He figures to stay in the rotation for now, but it's imperative that he improves soon. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:36 pm
  • Rendon goes 3-for-6 with a run vs Braves
    Anthony Rendon went 3-for-6 and scored a run in a big win over the Braves on Wednesday.

    Advice: All three hits were singles but it was a pleasant sight for his owners nonetheless. Rendon has been mired in a severe slump to start the season, so perhaps this is a sign he has turned things around. Even after tonight's strong game he is still batting just .226/.268/.264 with no homers and four RBI. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:04 pm
  • Kiermaier scores four times, nets three hits
    Kevin Kiermaier went 3-for-4 with a walk and scored four runs in Wednesday's win over the Tigers.

    Advice: He scored all four times he reached base, including the tying run in the bottom of the ninth. Kiermaier has yet to display the blend of power and speed he has shown glimpses of in the past. He has a .274 batting average with zero homers, 12 runs scored, one RBI and four stolen bases through 71 plate appearances. He hit 12 homers and stole 21 bases in just 105 games last year and could easily surpass those stats if he can stay healthy for the whole season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:31 pm
  • Russell Martin socks first homer of season
    Russell Martin belted his first home run of the season on Tuesday versus the Red Sox.

    Advice: It came off of Brian Johnson in the fifth inning. Martin also added a walk, scoring a couple times. It's been a really rough start for the Blue Jays' backstop, much like it was last season. He's hitting just .114/.295/.229 even after the nice night Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:26 pm
  • Baker: Nats considering a change at closer
    Nationals manager Dusty Baker confirmed late Tuesday that there will likely be a change at closer.

    Advice: "This ain't working," said Baker in his postgame chat with the media. Blake Treinen was pulled from a save opportunity after walking in a run Tuesday night against the Braves and Shawn Kelley went on to finish out the 3-1 win. Kelley comes with some workload limitations, but he's probably the guy to own right now in the Washington bullpen. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:23 pm
  • Blake Treinen pulled from save chance Tuesday
    Blake Treinen was pulled from a save chance after walking in a run versus the Braves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Treinen had a plum save opportunity in this one, entering the bottom of the ninth with a 3-0 lead. However, he yielded a leadoff single to Freddie Freeman and then a one-out single to Nick Markakis. Treinen then walked the next two batters to force in a run and was yanked in favor of Shawn Kelley at that point. To make matters worse for Treinen, Kelley quickly disposed of the Braves with a foulout and a strikeout. We'll have to see what Nationals manager Dusty Baker says, but Kelley might be the new closer in Washington. Treinen holds a 7.11 ERA and 2.53 WHIP on the season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:07 pm
  • Sanchez has part of fingernail removed
    Aaron Sanchez underwent a minor procedure on Tuesday to remove part of the fingernail on his right middle finger.

    Advice: The hope is that the procedure will alleviate his blister issues. Sanchez was placed on the disabled list over the weekend and could return before the end of the month if all goes well. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:41 pm

  • Blue Jays place Happ (elbow) on 10-day DL
    Blue Jays placed LHP J.A. Happ on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to April 17, with left elbow inflammation.

    Advice: Happ left Sunday's game with soreness in his elbow, but an MRI apparently ruled out anything serious. Regardless, it's another blow to Toronto's rotation, which is also missing Aaron Sanchez. The Blue Jays have yet to announce their plans for the rotation moving forward.

  • Happ diagnosed with inflammation in elbow
    J.A. Happ was diagnosed with inflammation in his left elbow, according to Steve Phillips of TSN.

    Advice: Jon Morosi of MLB Network already reported that Happ's injury is not believed to be serious, but now we have some more specifics. It's good news under the circumstances, but he's likely to spent some time on the disabled list. With Aaron Sanchez (blister) also sidelined, the Blue Jays are going to have to dip into their depth in the minors, which includes the likes of Casey Lawrence, Mat Latos, and T.J. House.

  • Report: J.A. Happ's elbow issue not serious
    According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, J.A. Happ's left elbow injury "is not believed to be serious."

    Advice: Happ left Sunday's start against the Orioles due to soreness in his elbow and was set to undergo an MRI on Monday. Morosi writes that Monday's evaluation showed enough to rule out anything serious. We should get more specifics about the issue soon, as well as a possible timetable for his return.

  • J.A. Happ scheduled to undergo MRI on elbow
    J.A. Happ is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his left elbow on Monday.

    Advice: Happ was forced to leave Sunday's start against the Orioles due to soreness in his pitching elbow. The veteran southpaw noticed the discomfort between the fourth and fifth innings on Sunday and his effectiveness definitely declined after that point. The Jays should have an update on his status after Monday's exam. Rotoworld.com Apr 16, 4:58 pm

  • Matt Boyd impressive in victory over Indians
    Matt Boyd was impressive in Sunday's victory over the Indians, allowing just one run on seven hits over his six innings.

    Advice: Boyd punched out three and walked two in the ballgame, silencing an Indians lineup that scored 13 runs the previous day. The only blemish on his day came home on a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning. Boyd will carry a 3.77 ERA and 1.47 WHIP into Saturday's matchup against the Twins in Minnesota. Rotoworld.com Apr 16, 2:03 pm
  • Happ removed from start with apparent injury
    J.A. Happ was pulled from his start Sunday against the Orioles after suffering an apparent injury.

    Advice: Happ hopped off the mound in pain after throwing a pitch to Adam Jones in the top of the fifth. He had worked 4 1/3 innings of shutout ball with no walks and three strikeouts. Look for an update from Rogers Centre within the hour. Rotoworld.com Apr 16, 11:29 am
    10-Day DL
    5:15 pm @StL
     
  • Blister sends Aaron Sanchez to disabled list
    Blue Jays placed RHP Aaron Sanchez on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to March 15, with a right middle finger blister.

    Advice: Sanchez first started dealing with a blister in his final spring training start, and it evidently must have been bothering him on Friday when the Orioles touched him up for five runs over 5 1/3 innings. He'll visit with a hand specialist in hopes that they'll have an idea how to get rid of the blister for good. Toronto has an off day Monday, so they can put off a decision on their fifth starter for a little while if they want. Rotoworld.com Apr 16, 7:00 am

  • Cozart goes 2-for-3 with a walk vs Brewers
    Zack Cozart went 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Brewers on Saturday.

    Advice: He tripled to center in the second inning to drive in a run. Cozart leads the major leagues with his .485 batting average and 1.356 OPS. He has a hit in all nine games he has played this year. The veteran is also one of the best defensive shortstops in the majors and may make a nice trade chip for the rebuilding Reds. They are in first place right now but that seems unlikely to last long. Rotoworld.com Apr 15, 2:56 pm
  • Zack Greinke gets roughed up by Dodgers
    Zack Greinke lost to his old team after giving up five runs and 10 hits in five innings Friday against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Greinke pitched well in his first two starts, but the Dodgers racked up a bunch of singles against him tonight, and it didn't help matters that he also walked three batters. He should rebound against the Padres next time out. Rotoworld.com Apr 14, 10:25 pm
  • Tyler Anderson lasts just four innings
    Tyler Anderson lost to the Giants after fiving up four runs in four innings Friday.

    Advice: Chris Marrero and Brandon Crawford homered off him. Anderson has an 8.59 ERA and no quality starts in three tries so far. His 13/5 K/BB ratio in 14 2/3 innings isn't bad, but if he doesn't perform better next time out, his rotation spot will be in jeopardy. Rotoworld.com Apr 14, 10:17 pm
