There are lots of little bits of Blue Jays news:
- Aaron Sanchez is going back on the DL with a 'middle finger laceration (fancy word for a cut). I'm hating this season.
- The Jays have called up right-handed reliever Cesar Valdez. Valdez has a 3.00 ERA in 9 innings for the Bisons. He’s allowed 5 hits, 1 walk, with 2 strikeouts. We picked him up off waivers from the A’s, back on May 5.
- As Matt posted, the Jays are going to activate Russell Martin today, he’ll be catching tonight. Mike Ohlman has been DFAed to make room for
- I know some of us were hopeful that the Jays would sign Doug Fister, but he signed with the Angels today.
- Dwight Smith is heading back to Buffalo. Looks like Anthony Alford gets to stay with the team. I hope as the full time left fielder.
- Kevin Pillar has been placed back on the roster, with his suspension completed.
