Who's up, Who's down: Blue Jays pitchers

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Our pitchers had a 3.36 ERA over the last 11 games.


Red Down

Marcus Stroman

Stroman made 2 starts, one of them was very good, 7.2 innings, 3 hits,1 earned and one was terrible, 5.1, 11 hits, 7 earned (he should have come out of the game earlier, but we actually came back and won it). Together they add up to 1-0 with a 5.54 ERA. Batters hit .275/.327/.510 with 2 home runs, 3 walks and 8 strikeouts.

Blue Up

Aaron Sanchez

Aaron made 2 starts. He went 6.2 in both. In one, he didn't allow a run, despite allowing 9 base runners. The other, he gave up 3 earned, off  5 hits and 2 walks. In total 1-0 with a 2.03 ERA, 4 walks and 12 strikeouts. Batters hit  .231/.286/.250, with just 1 extra base hit.

Blue Up

Marco Estrada

Marco made 2 starts, both good. He went 8 innings of 3 hit shutout ball Thursday and allowed 3 runs in 7 innings the start before. In total, 2-0, a 1.80 ERA, with 2 home runs, 7 walks and 8 strikeouts in 15 innings. Batters hit .140/.246/.280.  He's even better than he was last year. I really didn't expect that.

Blue Up

J.A. Happ

Happ's had 3 starts. The worse one, he allowed just 3 earned in 7.1 innings. The other two games, he gave up an earned run in each.In total, he was 1-1, with a 2.21 ERA, with 8 walks and 13 strikeouts in 20.1 innings. Batters hit .145/.234/.246 with 1 home run against him. Like Estrada, he has been amazing.

Red Down

R.A. Dickey

Dickey had 2 starts. He gave up a few runs (7) on not many hits (8). Hits seem to group together for the poor guy. Batters hit just .188/.300/.372 with 1 home run, 6 walks and 8 strikeouts, which would make you think he did pretty good, but he had a 5.25 ERA. I don't know if it is bad luck or what. It seems funny that he held guys to a Ryan Goins type batting average (though many more walks than Goins would take) and just 1 home run and yet he gets a down arrow.

Brett Cecil

Poor Brett. We really could use him.

Blue Up

Roberto Osuna

Roberto pitched in 6 of the 11 games (one of those signs that things are going better). In 6 innings, he didn't allow a run, just 2 hits (both singles),1 walk and 7 strikeouts. He picked up 4 saves. Batters hit .100/.143/.100 against him. I don't know where we would be without him.

Red Down

Drew Storen

Drew pitched in 3 games, getting 1 save. In 2.1 innings, he allowed 3 hits, all doubles, with 3 strikeouts. In 10 PA, batters had a .300/.300/.600 line against him. No earned runs....I guess that's a positive. Hard to rate a guy on 10 at bats.

Red Down

Jesse Chavez

Jesse's pitched in 4 games, 4 innings. He had a hold. He allowed 2 earned runs for a 4.50 ERA. In 18 PA, batters hit .313/.389/.313. No extra base hits, 2 walks and 2 strikeouts.

Red Down

Gavin Floyd

Gavin pitched in 4 games. Got a win, a loss and a hold. In 3 innings, he gave up 2 home runs (and he seems to give them up at the worst possible moments). Batters hit .250/.400/.750 with 2 walks and 3 strikeouts in 15 PA. That's a 15.00 ERA in those 3 innings. I'm pretty sure no one will argue.

Blue Up

Joe Biagini

Joe pitched in 5 games. He had 2 wins (one was a blown save/win). He allowed just 1 run in 5.2 innings (that's a 1.59 ERA if you are wondering). Batters hit .273/.273/.318 in 22 PA. He gave up 6 hits, but only 1 extra base hit (a double) and no walks with 6 strikeouts. I'd imagine he is the best rule 5 pick up the Jays have had in years.

Blue Up

Ryan Tepera

Got the call up,pitched a clean inning, got a strikeout. That's an up arrow.

Arrow around

Aaron Loup

Pitched in 3 games, a total of 2 innings. In 8 PA, he's allowed just 1 hit (but it was a home run), no walks, 1 hit batter and 4 strikeouts. Unfortunately, for his ERA, that hit batter came just before the home run, so he has a 9.00 ERA.  That's a .143/.250/.571 hitting line.

Red Down

Chad Girodo

Pitched in 2 games, of the past 11, before getting sent back to Buffalo.That 2 games added up to 0.1 innings. In 4 PA, he allowed 2 hits, 1 home run, 1 walk. That's a .667/.750/.1.667 batting line if you were wondering.  I'm thinking we'll see him again before the season is over.
