I’m sure you are surprised, but the Blue Jays have added Ryan Feierabend to the active and 40-man roster and Javy Guerra has been DFAed.
I really think it is unfair to DFA Guerra after he pitches 3 scoreless innings yesterday when we really needed someone to pitch 3 innings. Javy has a 3.86 ERA in 14 innings for the Jays this year. He cleared waivers last time, I hope he does again, but he pitched well yesterday and someone might want to add him.
Feierabend is a 33-year-old left. He pitched in Korea the last 3 years before joining the Jays this year. In the KBO he had a 4.21 ERA in 133 games, 103 starts. In Buffalo he’s made 3 starts, has a 2.70 ERA. In 16.2 innings he’s allowed 15 hits, 3 homers, 6 walks and 13 strikeouts.
He has pitched in the MLB before, parts of 3 seasons with the Mariners and 1 with the Rangers. In total he has a 7.15 ERA in 21 games, 19 starts, but the last time he pitched in the majors was back in 2014.
I’m not sure if this will be a one and done for Ryan or if he’ll be around for a bit. Maybe it will depend on how today goes.
Today’s lineup. Urena gets a start.
