Are we going to get multiple posts for every Blue Jays game ????  Or just the 90-95 games they lose ???? ;)

I posted on this game because it was Tanaka's debut.

I was just foolin' with you. Geez - 2 straight seasons in the AL East basement and you Blue Jay fans sure do get defensive. ;)


Make that 3 straight seasons :(

Come on now - you can't already be giving up on this season. At least wait until May hits and you are looking up......way up on the Red Sox. :tongue:

Did he blow both saves and then his team scored a shitload of runs to get him the win?

Yes, that happened both times.   At least last night Albuquerque came in and got us the save.   I'm just a little bit worried about the Tigers 'pen this year.   The starters are fine.

not mentioned already but this happened on Monday
Right-hander Jameson Taillon, considered the Pirates' top pitching prospect, will have Tommy John surgery and will miss the entire season and likely part of 2015.

CHICAGO -- White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia will have season-ending surgery for a torn labrum in his left shoulder, the team announced Thursday.

Garcia was injured when he attempted a diving catch in the sixth inning of Wednesday's loss at Colorado. Preliminary X-rays were negative for a fracture, separation or dislocation, but an MRI on Thursday in Chicago revealed the torn labrum.

The 22-year-old, who was getting his first chance to become an every-day player, was described as distraught when he learned the extent of his injury.

"Obviously, it's lousy. It stinks for the kid, who is crushed right now, who is very disappointed," general manager Rick Hahn said. "He was hoping this was going to be a temporary thing but obviously understands the medical situation and the realities in front of us and what they are. He's taking it very hard."

The White Sox recalled outfielder Jordan Danks from Triple-A Charlotte to take Garcia's place on the roster, but Dayan Viciedo and Alejandro De Aza will start regularly in the outfield flanking center fielder Adam Eaton, at least for now.

"It becomes an opportunity for somebody," manager Robin Ventura said. "Where [Viciedo] was two days ago, it was a different situation. Hopefully he can take advantage of this."

Garcia was batting .267 with two home runs in his first full season in the major leagues. He was acquired from the Detroit Tigers as part of a three-way trade that sent Jake Peavy to the Boston Red Sox.

Hahn said Garcia is expected to have no restrictions by the time 2015 spring training rolls around.

"It's not the kind of thing he can't come back from; it's not the kind of thing that he's going to have lingering effects on his ability or his ceiling," Hahn said. "It's just an unfortunate development that's pushed him back a year in terms of being an every-day guy in Chicago."

CINCINNATI -- The Tampa Bay Rays put right-hander Alex Cobb on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a strained oblique in his left side, the second starter they've lost to injury in a week.

Cobb pitched seven innings in a 1-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday. He's gone 15 1/3 innings without allowing a run.

The Rays called up left-handed reliever Jeff Beliveau from Triple-A Durham to take his spot on the roster.

Beliveau pitched 22 games in relief for the Cubs in 2012 and one for the Rays last season. He threw one perfect inning during a 12-4 loss to the Reds and was sent back to the minors. The Rays plan to call up another reliever on Monday.

Left-hander Erik Bedard was added to the roster on Sunday and will take Cobb's spot in the rotation for now.

Left-hander Matt Moore went on the 15-day DL earlier in the week with a sore elbow. The Rays moved left-hander Cesar Ramos from the bullpen into the rotation to take his place -- Ramos started Sunday against Cincinnati and took the loss, pitching only into the third inning.

Ramos and Bedard competed for a spot in the rotation during spring training, so they were ready to be starters when the season began.

Cobb felt some tightness in his side during the game on Saturday, but he was throwing so well that the Rays thought nothing of it.

"I'm not exactly sure when it happened," manager Joe Maddon said. "We thought it could have been dehydration."

He was examined after the game and sent back to Florida for an MRI that confirmed that he has a strained muscle. The Rays put him on the disabled list right away because they knew he'd miss one or two starts anyway.

"If we do everything right, there's a chance we could have him back for that third start," Maddon said.

The Colorado Rockies' pitching staff took another blow Sunday, as starter Brett Anderson will miss four to six weeks with a broken index finger suffered Saturday.

"We have to play the hand we're dealt with here," manager Walt Weiss said.

Anderson lasted just three innings Saturday after bruising the index finger on his left hand apparently while grounding out off Giants starter Matt Cain to end the top of the fourth. Anderson took the mound to begin the bottom of the frame and threw one warm-up pitch before a team trainer was summoned from the dugout.

"It felt like a firecracker went off in my glove," said Anderson, who is 0-2 with a 3.60 ERA in three starts this season. "I went out there and threw a warm-up pitch, and it felt like what I envision trying to throw with a foam finger feels like."

Weiss confirmed the injury Sunday, and it's likely that Anderson will land on the disabled list after he sees a hand specialist in Denver on Monday.

It is yet another injury setback for the 26-year-old who last worked as many as 100 innings back in 2010. Anderson missed the majority of the 2011 and 2012 seasons after elbow surgery and then was out most of last season with a broken bone in his foot.

ATLANTA -- Washington Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman is expected to miss four to six weeks after breaking his right thumb in Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves.

The Nationals placed Zimmerman on the 15-day disabled list Sunday morning, recalling infield prospect Zach Walters from Triple-A Syracuse to replace the former All-Star on the roster.

Zimmerman got hurt diving back to the bag as he was picked off second base in the fifth inning Saturday night. He stayed on the ground for a minute before finally leaving the field.

"It is what it is. Nobody is going to feel sorry for us," manager Matt Williams said. "You've got to play."

Following Zimmerman's exit, Anthony Rendon moved from second base to third and Danny Espinosa entered the game at second base.

"It's not our first choice, certainly, but the fact they can play multiple positions is good in times like this," Williams said.

Before the game, the Nationals placed center fielder Denard Span on the seven-day disabled list with a concussion. Right fielder Jayson Werth was held out after leaving Friday night's game with cramping in his groin. Werth had a pinch-hit single.

Washington's makeshift outfield included Bryce Harper in center, Kevin Frandsen in left and Nate McLouth in right.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 9, with a strained quadriceps muscle.

The earliest Beltre can play in a game is April 25 in Seattle (since April 24 is an off day).

He suffered the Grade 1 strain on Tuesday at Fenway Park and hasn't played since. Beltre completed a light workout on Saturday, and manager Ron Washington said the third baseman was hoping to work out again on Sunday to test it out, but rain wouldn't let that happen.

Still, the club didn't want to take any chances on rushing Beltre and having him miss more time, so they made the disabled list decision on Sunday.

General manager Jon Daniels said Saturday that the club was "leaning" that way.


"That's probably the smarter thing, to err on the side of caution," Daniels said. "The last thing we want is to be without him for an extended period of time."

Beltre, 34, is hitting .286 this season with four RBIs as the team's cleanup hitter. Kevin Kouzmanoff has taken his place at third base, and Washington has altered his lineup in Beltre's absence, batting Alex Rios in the No. 3 hole and Prince Fielder in the cleanup spot with Kouzmanoff batting fifth.

This is Beltre's first stay on the disabled list since missing five weeks in the middle of the 2011 season. He has dealt with hamstring issues constantly since arriving in Texas, but hasn't missed many games because of it. The quad is a new injury for him.

Beltre was voted the Rangers' MVP the past two seasons and has won four of the last seven Gold Gloves at third base.

In a corresponding move, the Rangers added recently acquired right-hander Hector Noesi to the active roster. He will serve as the club's long relief man.
