Who's up, Who's down: Blue Jays pitchers

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Meant to post this yesterday, but with all the roster moves, it got pushed back a day.

Over the last two weeks the Blue Jays were 8-5. The pitchers had an ERA of 4.46.

Pitchers

R.A. Dickey

R.A. made three pretty similar starts, he went 6.0, 6.1 and 6.0, allowed 3, 2 and 2 earned runs. Walked 4 ,3 and 2 batters. This might just be who he is from now one. Someone that gets you 6 innings and allows 3 runs. Not a star, but if you have a good offense and a good bullpen, you can live with him. Batters hit .225/.321/.296 against him, a pretty good line, but it seems like the hits are concentrated in the last inning he works. 9 walks and 17 strikeouts in 18.1 innings. His ERA was pretty good at 3.44. He had 2 wins and a no-decision. Kind of a marginal up arrow.

Mark Buehrle

2 good stats, 2 wins. It is hard to complain about a pitcher that is 7-1 in mid-May, so I won't. Pitched 13 innings, .191/.296/.234 line, 7 walks and 8 strikeouts. 1.38 ERA. A high number of walks for him but then just 2 extra base hits. If he could have started last year like this.....

Brandon Morrow

Hurt, might not be back.

Drew Hutchison

Drew had 2 pretty poor starts. We did win one of the games. He went 12.1 innings, gave up a .255/.327/.447 line, with 5 walks and 11 strikeouts. A 5.84 ERA. I do think he has been slightly unlucky, his FIP is 3.14 much better than his 4.37 ERA. He is just 23, and going off missing a full year, there are going to be ups and downs.

Dustin McGowan

Dustin made 3 starts, pitched 16 innings, was 1-1 in the starts. Batters hit .292/.361/.492 against him, with 7 walks and 10 strikeouts. The ERA, 3.94, was much better than he pitched. And next time we do this he'll be listed with the relievers.

Casey Janssen

He's back, it is so good to have him back. Pitched 3 games, faced 11 batters, allowed 1 hit, 1 walk, with 1 strikeouts. Got his first 2 saves.

Steve Delabar

Delabar pitched in 5 games, 6 innings. Batters hit .190/.292/.381 against him, 1 double, 1 home run, 3 walks and 8 strikeouts. A 3.00 ERA. 4 holds. He's getting his strikeouts now.

Aaron Loup

Loup pitched in 7 games. I think he is Gibby's favorite, and it is easy to understand why. He wasn't so great his two weeks. Batters hit .348/.385/.565 with 3 doubles, 1 triple, 2 walks and 6 strikeouts. A 5.06 ERA. All 3 earned against him came in 1 game, really he had 5 good appearances and 1 really bad one. 1 save and 3 holds. Marginal down arrow.

Brett Cecil

Brett pitched in 6 games, 6.1 innings. Batters hit .250/.345/.375, 1 double, 1 triple, 4 walks and 7 strikeouts. He had a loss, a save and 2 holds.  He had 2 bad appearances, where he gave up all his hits and walks for the two weeks.

Sergio Santos

Sergio pitched in 2 games before hitting the DL. And, really, he was pretty good. faced 11 batters, gave up 1 hit, 2 walks, with 3 strikeouts. 1 earned run in 2.2 innings.

Esmil Rogers

Pitched in 4 games, 6.0 innings. Batters hit .227/.320/.455, 1 triple, 1 homer, 3 walks, 5 strikeouts. 4.50 ERA. One hold and 3 mop up appearances. He's having a rough year.

Todd Redmond

He pitched in 2 games and took the loss in one. He is yet to pitch in a win. He got 2 outs in the 8th innings of May 3rd's game against the Pirates, coming into a tied game and giving up 3 hits, 2 walks and 2 runs. His other appearance, he pitched 4.2 innings after J.A. Happ came out of his start in the 3rd inning. In that one he only allowed 1 unearned run off 5 hits. Batters hit .364/.417/.455 against him.

Marcus Stroman

He's pitched in 5 games since his call up, and has a 1-0 record. The first 3 appearances were pretty good, the last two weren't. In those 2 bad games he ave up 11 hits, 8 earned, 1 walk, 2 strikeouts in 3 innings. In total batters are hitting .419/.441/.710 against him. He seemed to be getting very unlucky in his last game against the Indians, but it hasn't been good.

J.A. Happ

Made 3 starts, and was 2-1 in those starts. One start was terrible, 7 hits and 4 earned in 2.1 innings. Two of them were good (with a fair helping of lucky), a total of 11 innings, just 1 earned run, off 9 hits and 6 walks with 6 strikeouts. In total batters hit .296/.377/.500, with 3 home runs, 7 walks and 10 strikeouts. How he got through that with just a 3.38 ERA. I think he's been pretty lucky and he made good use of his fielder yesterday, but I'll take it. 

Neil Wagner also pitched once and it went badly, he faced 11 batters, allowed 6 hits, including 3 doubles, 1 triple and 1 homer and a walk.

Chad Jenkins pitched twice in between call ups and banishments. He faced 4 batters and got all 4 out. Pretty good really.

And Steve Tolleson pitched. He faced 2 batters and got 1 outs.
