Last year we looked at how the players were doing, every 2 weeks. This year I'm breaking it up, I'll do pitchers on Thursdays and batters on Fridays. In the past 2 weeks, the Jays went 6-8.

Pitchers


Arrow_up_3

R.A. Dickey

R.A. made 3 starts, went 2-1. 18.1 innings and 5 earned runs. Only 1 bad inning, he gave up 4 runs in the second inning of Tuesday's start against the Orioles. batters hit .206/.301/.270 off him over those 3 starts. I'm hoping the sore back/neck is something that will go away soon.

Brandon Morrow

Brandon made 3 starts, one was bad, the other two were pretty good. He was 0-1 with a 5.09 ERA, but should have had the win in Wednesday's game. Batters hit .254/.308.479 over those 3 starts. He only had 11 k in 17.2, that kind of worries me. It doesn't seems like we've seen him at his best yet. Still looking for his first win of the season.

Mark Buehrle

Mark had 2 starts. and they went much the way Mark Buehrle starts are supposed to go, lots of hits, not many runs. In the April 15 start, he went 6.1, gave up 9 hits but just 2 runs. He also had just 3 strikeouts. The April 20 start, he went 7.0, gave up 7 hits, but just 2 earned, that time he had 7 strikeouts. Batters hit .291/.328/.364 against him. Only 2 extra base hits, 1 double, 1 home run.

Josh Johnson

3 starts. One was awful, 1.1, 7 hits, 6 earned against Detroit. One good, 7 innings, 4 hits, 2 walks, 8 k. And one bad, 5.1, 8 hits 4 earned, 3 walks, 4 k. He looked so good in spring training.

J.A. Happ

J.A. also had 3 starts. 2 bad ones, 1 good. The last one was 6 innings, 4 hits, 0 earned runs, 2 walks, 6 strikeouts against the Orioles. The 2 bad ones, he went 10.2, giving up 9 earned off 11 hits, 4 walks, 2 home runs. For the 3 games, he was 1-1, with a 4.86 ERA, batters hit .234/.306/.391 against him.

Casey Janssen

Casey's been great. Pitched in 5 games, allowed 1 earned, 2 hits, with 6 strikeouts and no walks. He had 4 saves in the 5 games.

Sergio Santos

Sergio pitched twice, in the time frame we are looking at, before hitting the DL. Pitched 1.2, no hits, 1 walk 2 k. The injury is listed as 'triceps soreness'. He's to have this week off and, hopefully start throwing next week.

Steve Delabar

Steve pitched in 6 games, for a total of 8.2 innings, 6 hits, 3 earned, 6 walks, 11 strikeouts. A lot of walks.

Arrow_up_3

Esmil Rogers

Esmil pitched in 7 games, 8.1 innings. He gave up 2 runs in the first of the games, our 11-1 loss to the Tigers. Since then only 1 earned. In total 7 hits, 3 earned, just 1 walk, 4 strikeouts. He's been good. If he can continue to keep the walks down, we'll like him. I'm ignoring the 2 run allowed in the bad game, we lost big, those 2 runs didn't matter.

Arrow_around_3_medium

Brett Cecil

Brett has been in 5 games, 5.1 innings (I thought the plan was that he'd be the long man?), 4 hits, 2 earned, 2 walks, 6 k. He gave up a triple and a home run in a game against the Yankees, other than that he was great, costing him his first runs of the season. He picked up a hold and a win.

Arrow_down_3

Aaron Loup

Aaron pitched in 6 games. He went 3 innings in the first one and didn't give up a baserunner. Every game since then he has given up at least 1 hit. In total 6.2, 7 hits, 1 walk, , 5 runs, 2 earned, 2 k, 2 hit batters. Take out the 3 perfect innings in the first game and his last 5 games he's had 7 hits in 3.2. I'm going to hope it is a bad stretch. He really didn't look good in his last outing.

Darren Oliver

Darren didn't start the season well, but he has been better the last couple of weeks. He pitched in 6 games the past two weeks, allowing just 1 earned. He's still giving up a bunch of hits, 6 hits, 5.2 innings, 0 walks, 2 k. The 1 run allowed got him a loss. Batters hit .286/.273/.429 against him. The last week has been better, 4 innings, 3 hits, 2 of the doubles.

Ramon Ortiz

Pitched once, 3.1, 5 hits, 2 earned, 1 walk, 2 k and he's gone again. Follow the bouncing DFA ball.
