Who's Up, Who's Down On the Blue Jays In the Last Two Weeks, August 29 to Sept 11: Pitchers

Tom Szczerbowski

Over this 2 week period the Jays went 7-4. Just think how thrilled we would be if we were still in contention. Sigh.



R.A. Dickey

R.A. had three starts, one was good, one was ok, and then there was yesterday's. He was 2-0 with a 4.12 ERA. Batters hit .276/.313/.434 against him, with 2 home runs, 5 walks and 12 strikeouts in 19.2 innings. He's up over 200 innings now.


Mark Buehrle

2 good stats, one terrible start. He was 1-1 with a 5.19 ERA. Tuesday's disaster, with 8 earned in 4 innings hurt the ERA. In the other two games his ERA was 1.35. For the three starts, batters hit .292/.338/.528 against him, with 3 home runs, 4 walks and 11 strikeouts in 17.1 innings. Since 2 of 3 were good starts, I won't give him the down arrow.


Esmil Rogers

Esmil had 2 great starts, both wins. 0 ERA. Batters hit .089/.128/.111 with 2 walks and 9 strikeouts in 14 innings. I'd love to think this was the real Esmil.


J.A. Happ

2 starts, one was pretty good, one wasn't. 1-1 with a 2.79 ERA. batters hit .275/.341/.300 with 0 home runs, 4 walks and 7 strikeouts in 9.2 innings. It would be nice if he pitched deeper into games. If he had, I'd give him an up arrow.


Todd Redmond

Todd only made one start during this period, he got the win, going 5 innings, 3 earned. Batters hit .221/.211/.526 with 2 home runs, 0 walks and 2 strikeouts.



5 games, 5 saves. So why does it feel like he isn't throwing well? 1.80 ERA. Batters hit .278/.350/.444, with 1 home run, 1 walks and 5 strikeouts. I getting that batting line is why. It always seems we are just a pitch away from a melt down, but it doesn't happen. Casey deserves some credit for that


Steve Delabar

Back from the DL. He pitched 4 times, took the loss yesterday and had a hold. 1.93 ERA. Batters hit .231/.313/.308 with no home runs, 2 walks (one intentional) and 5 strikeouts n 4.2 innings. He's pitched much better than Casey, but has a loss.


Aaron Loup

Pitched 4 times, had a 3.86 ERA (1 earned in 2.1 innings). Batters hit .455/.455/.565, 0 walks and 3 strikeouts in 11 at bats.


Brett Cecil

Cecil pitched 3 times, had 2 holds. Gibby is sticking to his word that he would just use Brett as a LOOGY to restrict his innings. His 3 appearances added up to 1 inning. He allowed 2 runs, 1 earned. 6 at bats, 3 single, 1 k.


Neil Wagner

Pitched in 3 games, a total of 2.1 innings. Had 2 holds. Batters hit .375/.545/.750 in 11 plate appearances, 1 home run, 2 walks, 1 k.


Darren Oliver

Darren pitched twice, an inning each time. Allowed just a walk.


Dustin McGowan

Back from the DL. He pitched in 4 games. He looked great yesterday. 2 holds. 4 innings. 3 hits, 1 walk, 4 strikeouts. Batters hit .188/.235/.250 of him in 16 at bats. He says he'd like to start, I'd like him to close.


Luis Perez

Pitched in 2 games, coming back from the DL. .Took the loss in the game Sept. 4 against the Diamondbacks. Pitched to 6 batters, allowed 1 single, 0 walks, 2 strikeouts. Pitcher wins and losses aren't fair, he gave up 1 single, it came around to score after he left the game, and he gets a loss. Batting line of .111/.111/.111 gets an up arrow.


Sergio Santos

He's been great. Pitched in 5 games, had 3 holds and a blown save (despite not allowing a hit in that appearance). 2.2 innings, faced 8 batters, only one reached base (a walk), 2 strikeouts.

Ricky Romero and Kyle Drabek each pitched once. Ricky did alright, 2 innings, allowed the 1 run, but looked good. Kyle had some troubles, allowed 3 hits and a walk without getting an out. I hope we see more of both of them before the end of the season.

Almost forgot Chad Jenkins. He pitched twice, one game went good (3 scoreless innings), one went bad (4 hits, 3 earned in 2 innings). In 20 at bats, batters hit .300/.300/.600 against him.
