We looked at the Blue Jays batters yesterday, now it is time for the pitchers.



R.A. Dickey

R.A. had three starts, two were good, one was bad. The team won all three starts. He went 1-0 with a 2.75 ERA. His defense let him down in the game in Oakland, they had a very hard time catching pop ups in the 'high sky'. In 19.2 innings, he gave up 21 hits. 6 doubles, 2 home runs, 5 walks with 16 strikeouts. Batters hit .266/.310/.418  against him. Not great but better than he's been.


Mark Buehrle

3 starts, 2 were excellent (a 2-hit shutout and 7 shutout innings) and 1 bad (6 innings, 5 earned). 2-0 and 2.05 ERA on the two weeks. 22 innings, 14 hits, 5 earned, 4 walks and 15 strikeouts. Batters hit .182/.222/.311. Great work Mark.


Esmil Rogers

Two starts, both terrible, in total 20 hits in 9.1 innings, 4 walks and 8 strikeouts. 0-2, 12.54 ERA. Batters hit .435/.481/.587 against him.


J.A. Happ

He's back. His start wasn't good, 4 innings, 7 hits, 7 runs, 6 earned, 3 walks 2 strikeouts. I'm hoping the next will be better.


Josh Johnson

3 starts. 1 good, 2 terrible. 1-2, 9.00 ERA. Batters hit .393/.446/.607 against him, 6 walks, 14 strikeouts in 13 innings.



I love Casey. He pitched in 4 games, won 2, saved 2. 4.0 innings, 0 hits, 0 walks, 2 strikeouts.


Steve Delabar

Pitched in 5 games before going on the DL. 4.2 innings, 4 hits, 3 earned, 1 walk, 10 strikeouts. The inning that he struck out the side on 9 pitches was amazing. All 3 runs were scored in his last appearance. I couldn't understand why Gibby didn't pull him. Batters hit .266/.313/.667.


Aaron Loup

Aaron pitched in 6 games, 7 innings, had 1 hold, 1 loss. 3.86 ERA. Allowed 11 hits, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts. Batters hit .376/.414/.400 against him. He's been so good he is allowed a down week.


Brett Cecil

Cecil pitched in 5 games, he picked up 2 wins and a save. In 4.1 innings he allowed 2 hits, 1 home run, 1 earned, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts. Batters hit .133/.400/.188


Neil Wagner

He is back, pitched twice, 2.1 innings, 2 hits, 0 walks, 1 k, no runs. A very small sample size up arrow.


Darren Oliver

Darren pitched in 4 games, 4.2 innings, allowed 3 hits, 1 walk with 5 strikeouts. Batters hit .200/.250/.267.


Todd Redmond

He had 2 starts before being sent back down to the minors. One was good, 6 innings, 3 hits, 1 earned, 2 walks, 10 strikeouts. One bad, 3.2 innings, 7 hits, 3 earned, 1 walk, 5 k. 3.72 ERA. Batters hit .256/.326/.385 against him. I kind of feel bad for him. He's been better than some of our starters. A start back he strikes out 10 in 6 innings, one start later he's back to the minors.


Juan Perez

I love watching Juan pitch. He pitched in 3 games. 7.0 innings. He did allow 3 runs but was pretty good. Batters hit .160/.300/.240 with 5 walks and 8 strikeouts.  I can't figure out how he allowed 3 runs with a batting line like that against him.


Brad Lincoln

He's back up and pitched in 2 games. 4.1 innings 1 hit allowed, 4 walks 2 k, no runs. Batters hit .077/.294/.077 against him

  • Dustin McGowan is on the DL again,he pitched in 2 games, 2.2 innings total, allowed 2 hits, 1 earned, 3 walks and no strikeouts. Batters hit .200/..385/.200 in 10 at bats.
  • Sergio Santos is up now. Pitched in 2 games, 3.1 innings, 1 hit (a triple), 1 earned, 0 walks, 2 k. Batters hit .100/.091/.300 in 10 at bats.
