  • Walk-free outing important way for Drabek to debut

    Kyle Drabek has something positive to build from after a pair of scoreless innings vs. the Brewers on Tuesday night. The Blue Jays pitcher allowed one hit and struck out three in his first outing of the season at the big league level. It was a small step, but still an important one for a pitcher who has struggled through parts of four years in the Majors.

  • Stroman has plenty of rest, much to prove vs. Rays

    Friday's series opener against the Rays will be Marcus Stroman's opportunity to demonstrate how well he can bounce back from a tough outing. The Blue Jays' right-hander will take the mound at Rogers Centre following the worst start of his young career, when he gave up five runs on five hits in just two-thirds of an inning against the White Sox last week. Stroman will oppose Drew Smyly, who has impressed the Rays since being acquired in the David Price trade.

    Lloyd Moseby may not recognize much of present-day Medicine Hat, Alberta, but 36 years after he first arrived in the city, its people still recognize him.

  • Blue Jays battle but can't catch White Sox

    Drew Hutchison gave up six earned runs in the first inning on two homers, including a grand slam, as the Blue Jays fell, 7-5, to the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field on Sunday and dropped to 4-11 in August.

  • Drabek happy for chance out of Toronto's 'pen

    Former top prospect Kyle Drabek is back with the Blue Jays, but this time it's in a very different role.

  • Blue Jays' Stroman busy following rough start

    Marcus Stroman's performance against the White Sox on Friday night wasn't pretty, but it's also the type of outing in the long run that could turn into a learning experience for the young Blue Jays hurler.
