The Blue Jays went 8-3 over the past two weeks. The pitchers had a 3.49 ERA, which isn't too bad.

Pitchers

Red Down

R.A. Dickey

R.A. made 3 starts. One was ok, the other two weren't. The good part is the team won all three games. Over the 3 games, he had a 7.31 ERA. In 16 innings he allowed 26 hits, 2 home runs, 5 walks and 7 strikeouts. Batters hit .413/.451/.651 against him. This follows a month of very good starts. I hope he'll get back to those good starts soon.

Red Down

Mark Buehrle

Mark had 2 starts, one good, one not. In the good one, he went 7 innings, allowed 2 earned, the bad was 4 innings, 4 earned. I thought he was getting very unlucky in the second game. In all, a 4.91 ERA. In 11 innings, he allowed 14 hits, 1 home run, 2 walks and 4 strikeouts.  Batters hit .318/.340/.455 against him. According to Home Run Hit Tracker, under normal conditions, the ball hit for the home run wouldn't have left any MLB park. Bad luck that there was wind blowing how, and they were in that bandbox in Philly. Slight down arrow.

Arrow around

Marco Estrada

2 starts, 1 good, 1 ok. He had a 3.86 ERA. In 11.2 innings, he allowed 8 hits, 4 home runs, 3 walks and 7 strikeouts.  Batters hit .190/.244/.548 against him. Too many home runs and it would be nice if he pitched deeper into games, but he's been so much better than we could have hoped.

Blue Up

Drew Hutchison

Drew made two start, both very good, and then got sent to the minors, poor guy. He was 2-0 with a 1.98 ERA. In 13.2 innings, he allowed 7 hits, 1 home run, 3 walks and 11 strikeouts.Batters hit .156/.224/.267 against him. He'll be back up next week.

Blue Up

David Price

2 starts. We won one and lost one. He was left in a little long in the loss. He had a 2.93 ERA. In 15.1 innings he allowed 17 hits, 1 home run, 1 walk and 15 strikeouts. Batters hit .270/.281/.397.  I'm really enjoying watching him.

Blue Up

Brett Cecil

Brett pitched in 5 games. He had 2 holds.He didn't allow a earned run (and hasn't since June 21).  In 14 PA, batters had just 3 hits, 1 double, 0 walks and 3 strikeouts. Batters hit .214/.214/.286. He's been great.

Blue Up

Roberto Osuna

Roberto pitched in 5 games, had 4 saves. In 5 innings, he didn't allow an earned run. In 18 PA, he allowed just 3 hits, 2 were doubles, 0 walks and had 7 strikeouts. He's been amazing. Batters hit .167/167/.278.

Blue Up

Mark Lowe

Mark pitched in 3 games. He allowed just 1 single, no walks and 4 strikeouts in 10 PA. So that would be a .100/.100/.100 batting line. That one I could do in my head. It's a strange problem to have, too many good relievers.

Blue Up

Aaron Sanchez

Aaron pitched in 6 games. He had 4 holds and one blow save/loss. In 5.2 innings, he allowed 1 run for a .1.59 ERA. In 19 PA, he allowed 3 hits, 1 home run, no walks 4 strikeouts. Batters hit .167/.167/.333.

Blue Up

Liam Hendriks

Liam pitched in 5 games and picked up a win. No earned in 4.1 innings. In 16 PA, he allowed 3 singles, 2 walks and had 5 strikeouts. Batters hit .214/.313/.214 against him. He's been good, he deserves a bigger role, but then we have a few good relievers.

Arrow around

LaTroy Hawkins

LaTroy pitched in 3 games. He had 1 hold. He gave up 1 earned for a 3.00 ERA. in 13 PA he allowed 4 hits, 1 double, 0 walks, with 4 strikeouts.  Batters hit .308/.308/.385.

Blue Up

Bo Schultz

Bo pitched in 3 games, 4 innings. He allowed 3 earned runs, for a 6.75 ERA. He had 2 good appearances and one really bad one. He faced 17 batters, allowed 3 hits but 2 of them were home runs. 2 walks and 3 strikeouts. Batters hit .200/.294/.600. One of the home runs was one of those 'only in Philly' homers, but the other would have gone out of any park in the league.
