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:
#BlueJays signed speedy OF Quintin Berry to a minor-league deal on the 31st, making him post-season eligible if someone lands on DL.— Shi Davidi (@ShiDavidi) September 2, 2016
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.
