Blue Jays Release Casey Fien

The Blue Jays released pitcher Casey Fien, tweets MLB.com's Jordan Bastian.  The poor guy has already bounced from the Tigers to the Red Sox to the Jays this winter.  Bastian's colleague Jason Beck chronicled Fien's travels ten days ago.

Fien, 26, posted a 3.41 ERA, 10.2 K/9, and 2.3 BB/9 in 58 Triple A relief innings last year.  He struggled in 11.3 big league frames, which marked his Major League debut.  Baseball America ranked Fien 27th among Tigers prospects, writing that he "profiles as a middle reliever."  Still, his minor league command is intriguing.

pretty big slap in the face to be a pitcher released by the blue jays.

I take it you don’t know the Jays pitching staff very well.

No, I do. My point was that they’ve signed any pitcher with a pulse this offseason, and that it must suck to be a guy to get released in such a situation.

why, because there was too much competition?

It’s hard to imagine that the Blue Jays have lots of guys with higher upside than this guy… Those AAA peripherals are nothing to sneeze at. In fact, he’s had solid K/BB numbers his whole minor league career. I’d take a flyer on this guy.

I feel bad for the guy. Watched him come up and pitch a bit in our system… I wonder what the issue is. I hope he finds somewhere to catch on

Mets would be smart to sign this guy.

I’m sure the Red Sox will claim him again.

I think he’ll go back to Detroit off the 40 man. They didn’t want to lose him in the first place, just a numbers game.

Minny would be bet for his landing spot.
