Blue Jays DFA Sergio Santos, Callup Chad Jenkins

Once again, Chad Jenkins makes the trip from Buffalo.


You had to figure the Jays were going to send out Sergio Santos after last night's disaster and they did, he got the DFA treatment again. This time I'm not expecting him back.

And Chad Jenkins returns. Is it really 10 days since he was last sent out? We should just schedule these Jenkins callup posts for 10 days after he gets sent out, it would save time.

Jenkins has a 2.56 ERA in 21 games in Toronto. In 31.2 innings, he's allowed 34 hits, 2 home runs, 6 walks and 18 strikeouts, as a Jay. As a Bison, he has a 4.70 ERA in 44 innings, 45 hits, 5 home runs, 9 walks and 27 strikeouts.

Sergio has been just terrible this year after a great season last year. He has a 8.57 ERA, in 21 innings. He's allowed 28 hits, 5 home runs, 18 walks and 29 strikeouts. I huge change from his 1.75 ERA from last year. It is hard to believe that he could forget how to pitch over the winter, but that seems to be what has happened.

He did seem to have figured things out in Buffalo, but lost it again somewhere on the highway back to Toronto. I wonder if he will go back to Buffalo, their season ends on the first of September, but, if they make the playoffs, he'd be handy to have.

Welcome back Chad. This time. I hope, you'll be here for the rest of the season.
