  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Kiermaier is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers.

    Kiermaier started the first two games coming out of the All-Star break but will sit Sunday after going 2-for-5 with double, two runs and two strikeouts. Daulton Varsho will shift to center field while Davis Schneider receives a start in left.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Homers again in loss

    Guerrero went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 7-3 loss to the Tigers.

    Guerrero singled in the first and fourth innings before crushing a two-run homer in the sixth. After cooling down a bit to open July, the first baseman has homered in three consecutive contests while tallying three hits twice. On the season, he is batting .293 with 16 home runs, 59 RBI and 49 runs scored across 423 plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Yusei Kikuchi: Stumbles late in loss

    Kikuchi (4-9) took the loss against the Tigers on Saturday, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over five innings.

    Kikuchi allowed one run over his first five frames but loaded the bases to open the sixth. He was pulled at 94 pitches and all three inherited runners scored on a grand slam. The southpaw generated an impressive 15 swinging strikes, but he has now yielded at least four earned runs in six of his past 10 starts and hasn't won a game since June 11. On the season, he owns a 4.54 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 125:28 K:BB over 111 innings and lines up for a home matchup with the Rangers next week.

  • Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: To miss multiple weeks

    An MRI on Saturday revealed Bichette's right calf strain to be moderate, and he'll miss multiple weeks due to the injury, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    Bichette strained his calf Friday for the second time this month and was placed on the 10-day injured list earlier Saturday. Further testing revealed the injury will require a multi-week absence, keeping the star shortstop sidelined into August. In his stead, Leo Jimenez should handle most of the shortstop work, though Addison Barger and Ernie Clement could mix in at the position.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Clubs 11th homer

    Springer went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's loss to the Tigers.

    The veteran outfielder got hold of a Beau Brieske changeup in the eighth inning, ripping it down the left-field line. Springer has turned his season around over the last month, and in his last 19 games he's slashing .362/.429/.725 with six of his 11 homers and 21 of his 36 RBI.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Goes yard again

    Guerrero went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's loss to the Tigers.

    He took Jack Flaherty deep in the sixth inning to get the Blue Jays on the board, a 445-foot blast that left Guerrero's bat at 117.5 mph. The first baseman continues to display his impressive power -- since the beginning of June, Guerrero has launched 10 homers in 41 games while slashing .289/.320/.541 with 32 RBI.

  • Blue Jays' Nate Pearson: Battling illness

    Pearson is away from the team Saturday due to an illness, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Pearson wasn't feeling well when he arrived to the ballpark Saturday, so the Jays sent him home in order to rest. He has already tested negative for COVID-19 and the flu, so he should be viewed as day-to-day going forward.

  • Blue Jays' Leo Jimenez: Back starting at shortstop

    Jimenez is starting at shortstop and batting eighth Saturday against the Tigers.

    The 23-year-old received four starts at shortstop heading into the All-Star break with Bo Bichette dealing with a calf strain, and Bichette is now on the injured list after he aggravated the injury Friday. Jimenez is likely to operate as Toronto's primary shortstop in the meantime, and he could have some fantasy utility since he's hit well in his first nine MLB games with a .348/.464/.435 slash line.

  • Blue Jays' Addison Barger: Returns to Toronto

    The Blue Jays recalled Barger from Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    A calf strain sent Bo Bichette to the injured list Saturday, so Barger will now rejoin the big-league squad in order to give the Jays a glove that can play in both the infield and outfield. The 24-year-old has slashed .260/.391/.466 across 248 plate appearances in Triple-A this season. However, he's posted just a .360 OPS through 20 games in the majors.

  • Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: Lands on injured list

    The Blue Jays placed Bichette on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right calf strain, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    Bichette didn't land on the injured list immediately after straining his calf July 10, but after suffering a recurrence of the injury just nine days later, he'll now hit the IL in order to properly recover. Addison Barger was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move, though it will be Leo Jimenez starting most days at shortstop while Bichette is sidelined.

  • Blue Jays' Ernie Clement: Resting Saturday

    Clement isn't in Toronto's lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers.

    Clement will get a breather Saturday after going 0-for-4 with a strikeout during Friday's loss in the series opener. His absence will move Vladimir Guerrero to third base while Spencer Horwitz starts at first, opening up the keystone for Davis Schneider.

  • Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: Absent from Saturday's lineup

    Bichette (calf) isn't in the Blue Jays' lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers.

    Bichette left Friday's contest early after straining his right calf for the second time this month, and he's slated to undergo an MRI to determine whether his injury is severe enough to warrant a trip to the injured list. Leo Jimenez will start at shortstop instead Saturday and would likely continue to do so should Bichette end up on the IL.

  • Blue Jays' Chris Bassitt: Coughs up five runs in loss

    Bassitt (8-8) took the loss Friday against the Tigers, allowing five runs on seven hits and one walk over 6.2 innings. He struck out six.

    With this outing, the Toronto right-hander continued a run of poor performance that saw him yield seven runs across 10 innings in his last two outings before the All-Star break. Bassitt allowed multiple homers for the first time since April 26, as Mark Canha and Wenceel Perez each hit two-run shots. The veteran pitcher's ERA now stands at 3.71 over 114 innings this season. Bassitt currently lines up to make his next start against the Rays at home.

  • Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: Suffers calf strain

    Bichette left Friday's game against the Tigers due to a right calf strain.

    Bichette wasn't able to put any weight on his right leg after lining out to right field in the sixth inning, and he's now officially been diagnosed with a strained right calf -- the same injury that caused him to miss the last four games before the All-Star break. The Blue Jays didn't place him on the IL after his initial strain, but there's a good chance he spends some time on the injured list this time around in order to properly address the issue. Leo Jimenez will presumably take over as Toronto's starting shortstop while Bichette recovers.

  • Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: Removed with apparent injury

    Bichette was removed from Friday's game versus Detroit with an apparent leg injury, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    Bichette was hopping to first base as he lined out to right field during the sixth inning, and he was reluctant to put any weight on his right leg. The 26-year-old shortstop missed the final four games of the first half due to a strained right calf, and the Blue Jays' trainers will take a look at him to determine if his latest injury is related.

  • Blue Jays' Joey Votto: Tweaks ankle, scratched Friday

    Votto was removed from Triple-A Buffalo's lineup for Friday's game against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after injuring his ankle during pre-game warmups, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Votto was set to make his debut with Buffalo on Friday after he was reinstated from the 7-day injured list, but he suffered a setback in warmups and he will be evaluated Saturday. Over his 16 rehab outings, Votto went 8-for-43 with three doubles, one home run and eight RBI between Single-A Dunedin and the rookie-level Florida Complex League.
