We have had an interesting couple of weeks. Unfortunately interesting doesn't equal good.the Blue Jays are 4-8 over their last 12 games. The pitchers had a 4.06 ERA in that time.
|Stroman made 2 starts, one of them was okish, one was terrible.In the ok one, he went 6 innings and only allowed 2 earned, but there were 2 more unearned and 8 hits allowed.The bad game was, well, bad. He had some bad luck but there were a lot of hard hit balls off him too. in total, he was 0-1with a 6.94 ERA. Batters hit.389/.431/.537 with no home runs, 4 walks an 7 strikeouts in 11.2 innings. I hope he's got it out of his system. I don't know what was going on, but it did seem like everything he threw was about thigh high.|
|Aaron made 2 starts, one was very good, one was bad. The good one had 7 innings of 3 hit ball (we'll ignore the 5 walks). The bad one had 6 earned in 6.2 innings (2 of the runs scored after he left the game. In all,1-0 with a 4.61 ERA. Batters hit .213/.339/.362 against him, with 1 home run, 9 walks and 11 strikeouts in 13.2 innings. Not a bad batting line, but too many walks.|
|Happ's had 2 starts, one that was very good, 8.2 innings, of 6 hit ball. He came within an out of a complete game shut out. The other one you likely remember. 2 innings, 8 earned. .In total 1-1, 6.75 ERA. Batters hit .317/.370/.488 with 2 home runs, 4 walks and 7 strikeouts in 10.2. Not sure if one great start and one awful start should add up to a down arrow or an around one, but we'll go down.|
|Roberto pitched in 5 games. He's been very good. I wish we would give him more leads to protect. . 5 innings, 2 saves, last night's win.He also had a blown save. In all batters hit .125/.250/.188 in 20 PA. 2 hits, 3 walks, 6 strikeouts. He looked great last night.|
|Drew pitched in 4 games. 2 went well, 2 well badly. He took 1 loss (in the game Osuna had the blown save). Pitched a total of 3 innings, giving up 4 earned. Batters hit .286/.412/.643 with 2 doubles, 1 home run. 2 walks and 5 strikeouts in 17 PA. I don't know what the answer is.|
|Was called up, pitched 2 innings, allowed 4 hits, 2 earned, 1 home run, 1 walk, with 1 strikeout and then got sent back down. I hope we see him again. I'd hate that to be his one shot at the major.|
|It looks like Chad will be staying up for a bit. He pitched in 6 games. In 4 innings, he's allowed 5 hits. Batters hit .313/.353/.563 in 17 PA. He gave up a double and a home run, 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. He's been good against lefties, they have hit .133/.133/.133 against him. Unfortunately, even a LOOGY faces the odd right-hander.|
