The Blue Jays announced a series of roster moves today, with lefty Hyun Jin Ryu and catcher Danny Jansen being activated from the injured list. In corresponding moves, catcher Tyler Heineman and righty Trent Thornton have been optioned to Triple-A Buffalo.
Ryu was only able to make two starts this year before elbow inflammation landed him on the IL. Both of them were poor outings, with Ryu allowing at least five earned runs in each. The Jays are surely hoping that Ryu can bounce back so that those results can be chalked up to the injury. In 169 innings last year, Ryu had a 4.37 ERA, with a diminished 20.4% strikeout rate but strong walk rate of 5.3%. His return to the rotation should bump Ross Stripling back into a long relief role in the bullpen, a role that Thornton had been filling in the interim.
Jansen’s season got off to a great start before an oblique injury put him on the shelf. In a tiny sample of three games, Jansen hit a couple of home runs and was slashing .571/.625/1.571 to start the season. Last year, he hit .223/.299/.473, wRC+ of 105 in 70 games. With Heineman’s option and Jansen’s activation, the club is still rolling with a three-catcher setup, as Jansen joins Alejandro Kirk and Zack Collins on the roster.
Hey Darragh-Maybe I’ve missed it on here somewhere. But why is there no mention about Padres mananger Bob Melvin having surgery regarding his prostate? I just read he’s cancer free.
Just wanted to put that out there. Good news
Must be decent news if one of the moves isn’t Springer going on the IL
they said yesterday they thought it was minor and probably want to see how he reacts today and tomorrow as well as of they need to call up another arm. they can always retroactively do it if he doesn’t seem likely to play in the next 7-10
Ah didn’t see that
There is some trade value on Jansen and Kirk. Either could be bring back an impact player when Moreno is deemed ready to bring up from AAA.
There is trade value, although not convinced Jansen can bring back an “impact” player. It remains unclear what level player he is.
Why do people always assume a trade has to be one player. Jansen has trade value, add him to a prospect or 2 and you have a strong package to land most players in the majors
If you consider a bullpen depth piece or a platoon LH bat an “impact player”, then you are right.
What is going on with the jays tv broadcast?
Is Schulman still Covid recovering?
Where is tabby?
Who is the game caller, I hear Sittle as colour man.
Could you imagine if Springer was brought in…lol
Both away at their sons’ graduations.
Schulman is at his son’s college graduation.
Why is Zack Collins on the TOR roster?
Jansen the main catcher has been hurt until now. Collins has been decent hittingna few homers and xrra base hits. Believe hes coming, down from his peak though.
Hes also a lefty complimenting a right heavy lineup.
Was not an elbow issue. It was his forearm
