There are little bit’s of Blue Jays news today.

They have announced their starting pitchers for the next few days:

Tonight: Marcus Stroman

Saturday: Marco Estrada

Sunday: J.A. Happ

Monday: R.A. Dickey

Tuesday: Aaron Sanchez

Francisco Liriano will be in the bullpen for this time through the rotation, but, Gibby says he will start again. They are going to take things series by series.

And Darrell Cecilianni was added to the call-ups. He Barnes, Tepera, Dermody, and Pompey will all be available tonight. As well, new free agent signing Josh Thole (no relation to the Josh Thole who was DFAed last week). And Devon Travis is back from his tour of duty with the Bluefield Blue Jays. I understand they are putting up a statue of Travis at the ballpark in Bluefield.

Matt Dominguez was DFAed to make room for Dermody on the 40-man roster. They are only allowed one Matt D on the roster at a time.

And Shi Davidi tell us this:

Berry has played 125 games in the majors, most of them with the Tigers, and has a .265/.336/.368 with 27 steals and just 1 caught stealing.
