Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Looks on track for next start
Blue Jays interim manager John Schneider said Sunday that Manoah (elbow) is line to make his next turn through the rotation, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.
Manoah was fortunate to avoid anything more than a bruise after he was struck in his pitching elbow by a comebacker in his last outing Friday against the Tigers. He played catch Sunday and could be cleared to throw a side session Monday or Tuesday. If all goes well during the mound session, Manoah would be available to start as soon as Thursday's series opener in Minnesota. Due to an off day Monday, the Blue Jays would have the luxury of pushing Manoah's next start until Saturday if he needs a couple extra days to heal up.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Earns 24th save
Romano picked up the save Sunday against Detroit, striking out two in a perfect ninth inning in a 4-1 victory.
Romano threw 10 of his 13 pitches for strikes and no ball left the infield as he secured his 24th save in 27 chances. The 29-year-old had a productive July and went 7-for-7 in save chances, allowing just one earned run in 10.2 innings while compiling a 12:1 K:BB. He should continue to have many save chances as Toronto competes for a spot in the postseason.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jose Berrios: Stellar in win
Berrios (8-4) earned the victory Sunday over Detroit, striking out six in seven innings while allowing a run on three hits and a walk.
Berrios was highly efficient Sunday, needing just 80 pitches to complete the seven frames. The lone mark against him came on a Javier Baez solo homer to lead off the fourth inning. Following that blast, he retired 12 of the last 13 batters he faced. Berrios has been up-and-down all season but put together a solid July, going 3-0 and posting a 3.00 ERA and 42:7 K:BB across 36 innings in six starts. His next start will likely be next weekend in Minnesota.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Notches second stolen base
Guerrero went 1-for-2 with a walk, a stolen base and two runs in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Tigers.
Guerrero is now up to two stolen bases on the season, both of which have come within the past week. Since the beginning of July, Guerrero has left the yard just three times, but he hasn't been too much of a disappointment for fantasy managers, considering he's hitting .340 with 16 runs and 16 RBI in addition to two steals on the month. Guerrero will be in the lineup once again for Sunday's series finale with Detroit, manning first base and batting second.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Raimel Tapia: Making third straight start
Tapia will start in center field and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Tigers.
Tapia will pick up his third consecutive start in the outfield, with two coming at the expense of George Springer, who is resting for the series finale after sitting out Friday's loss with an elbow injury. Since opening the second half with three extra-base hits and 10 RBI in his first two starts, Tapia has gone 2-for-9 with an RBI over his subsequent three starts.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Santiago Espinal: Retreats to bench
Espinal is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers.
Espinal will get his second day off of the week while Cavan Biggio enters the lineup as the Blue Jays' second baseman and leadoff hitter. In his six starts since the All-Star break, Espinal has gone 5-for-22 with two walks, six runs and three RBI.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' George Springer: Getting breather Sunday
Springer is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers.
Springer sat out Friday's 4-2 loss with an elbow injury, but he checked back into the starting nine for Saturday's 5-3 win, going 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored. Though he's back on the bench for the series finale, Springer doesn't appear to have aggravated the elbow injury and may just be getting some rest due to the early start for Sunday's contest, which begins at 12:05 p.m. ET. Raimel Tapia will cover center field in Springer's stead.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Teoscar Hernandez: Launches 14th homer
Hernandez went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 5-3 victory against Detroit.
Hernandez slugged a 424-foot shot to center field in the sixth inning to give the Blue Jays a 5-3 lead that held up for the remainder of the contest. The long ball is his only hit over his past four games, during which Hernandez has gone 1-for-14. He hasn't quite matched his production from his breakout 2020 and 2021 campaigns, but Hernandez has registered a solid .270/.321/.485 slash line with 14 homers, 49 RBI and five steals over 315 plate appearances on the season....

Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Secures another save
Romano earned the save against the Tigers on Saturday, allowing one hit and striking out one batter in one scoreless inning.
Romano was asked to protect a two-run lead, and he needed only 12 pitches to close the door on Detroit. The right-hander did give up a single -- the first baserunner he has allowed over his past four appearances -- but cruised to his third save since the All-Star break. Romano has allowed only one earned run across nine outings in July, picking up six saves and one win while posting a 10:1 K:BB over 9.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Ross Stripling: Can't get out of fifth inning
Stripling did not factor in the decision against Detroit on Saturday, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out five batters over 4.1 innings.
Stripling breezed through four scoreless frames before running into trouble in the fifth. He allowed the first three batters in the inning to reach base, then gave up a sacrifice fly before being pulled for Adam Cimber. Cimber allowed one more run to score but otherwise contained the damage to preserve Stripling's four-game streak of allowing two or fewer runs. Stripling has pitched pretty effectively for Toronto, but he's exceeded five innings only once in his past six starts.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Alek Manoah: Feeling better Saturday
Manoah (elbow) is feeling better Saturday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Manoah exited Friday's game against the Tigers with a right elbow contusion after being struck by a comebacker, but he underwent X-rays that came back negative. He'll rest for a few days before throwing a side session, and while the Blue Jays hope he won't need to miss a turn through the rotation, his availability for his next start will likely be determined based on how he feels after his upcoming throwing session....

Blue Jays' Max Castillo: Sent to minors
Castillo was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.
The 23-year-old made a pair of starts ahead of the All-Star break but moved to the bullpen over the last week since Yusei Kikuchi is now back to full health. Castillo struck out one in two scoreless innings over his last two relief appearances but will head to the minors after Trent Thornton was recalled Saturday. Castillo will likely be used as a starter in the minors, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Recalled by Blue Jays
Thornton was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.
Thornton was sent down in early July but posted a 1.08 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 8.1 innings over six minor-league appearances since then. The right-hander should serve as a multi-inning reliever in the Blue Jays' bullpen after Max Castillo was optioned to Triple-A on Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Alejandro Kirk: Not in Saturday's lineup
Kirk isn't starting Saturday against the Tigers.
Kirk started the last four games and went 4-for-16 with a home run, a double and two RBI. George Springer is serving as the designated hitter while Raimel Tapia starts in center field.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' George Springer: Returns to lineup
Springer (elbow) is starting Saturday against Detroit.
Springer sat out Friday's loss due to right elbow discomfort, but he'll serve as the designated hitter and lead off following his one-game absence. Over his last five games, he's hit .304 with a home run, five RBI, four runs and a steal.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: Back in action Saturday
Bichette (shoulder) is starting Saturday against the Tigers.
Bichette wasn't in the lineup Friday due to left shoulder soreness, but he appeared off the bench and went 0-for-1 in the 4-2 loss. He'll be back in the starting nine a day later, starting at shortstop and batting cleanup.... See More ... See Less
