A sad way for Chad Jenkin's season to end:
Yesterday R.A. Dickey was hit in the head by a ball hit during BP. This time, it sounds like Jenkins was trying to catch the ball:
Chad was up and down, I don't even remember, 6 times this season? I still think someone needs to develop a phone app to tell me if Chad is up with the team or not. He was successful when he was up with the team. In 21 games he had a 2.56 ERA, Going 31.2 innings, he allowed 34 hits, walked 6 and struck out 18. In Buffalo, he pitched in 21 games, starting 4. In 44 innings, he allowed 45 hits, 9 walks with 27 strikeouts.
Not a good end to his season, but he can look back and know that he did a good job for us. Unfortunately for Chad, I think he has an option year left, so next year he might spend as much time on the highway between Toronto and Buffalo than he does at in Toronto.
