Revisiting preseason questions: Blue Jays

In mid-February, we wondered if Jose Bautista would get his revenge on teams who ignored him on the free-agent market. After a slow start, the 36-year-old has come to life in May.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Blur Jays starter Marco Estrada's game on Sunday was messing with timing -- he threw 46% changeups, his highest rate in a start in his career. Orioles hitters were 2-for-11 against it. But he finished with 9 of his career-high tying 12 K coming via his fastball. Orioles hitters swung at 20 of his fastballs and missed 10. The fastball miss rate (50%) was the highest of his career. Overall, Orioles hitters were 1-13 against his fastball.

Castillo leads Orioles past Blue Jays 7-5

Welington Castillo hit a go-ahead home run for the second consecutive game to lead the Baltimore Orioles past the Toronto Blue Jays 7-5 on Saturday night at sold out Camden Yards.

Joe Biagini is now a likely two-start pitcher for the Blue Jays in Week 8. The matchups are tricky -- @MIL, TEX -- but he's also a control/ground ball pitcher available in 93 percent of ESPN leagues. If volume on the cheap is your aim, take a look.

Jays' Sanchez placed on DL for 3rd time in '17

The Blue Jays put Aaron Sanchez back on the disabled list Saturday after he suffered a laceration on the same middle finger that has given him trouble this season.

ESPN Staff  

The Blue Jays have called up OF Anthony Alford, who left the Ole Miss football team in 2014 to pursue a pro baseball career. Keith Law ranks Alford as the No. 55 overall prospect. More from Law: "When healthy, he's a disciplined hitter for someone so inexperienced, and there's at least average power to go with plus running speed." To make room for Alford, OF Darrell Ceciliani (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day DL. Alford is in Friday night's lineup against the Orioles, playing LF and batting eighth.

Perplexed by the Alford callup; he had a huge start in AA that hasn't held up, and still needs work on his reads in centerfield.

BBTN: Bautista Beaned, Rockies' Reynolds, More

Before a conversation with Rockies 1B Mark Reynolds, Buster Olney talks to Karl Ravech and Justin Havens about the regression to old school thinking by the Braves, the impact of Freddie Freeman's injury and more. Plus, Jason Beck on the Tigers staying afloat and Miguel Cabrera's injury.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Marcus Stroman's first career home run stole the spotlight Thursday, but C Luke Maile also hit one out, quietly making history. In 2,618 regular-season interleague games, never before had an AL team's starting pitcher and starting catcher each homered (Elias Sports Bureau).

ESPN Stats and Information  

Blue Jays pitcher Marcus Stroman hit his first major league home run on Thursday night, taking a high, outside pitch from the Braves' Julio Teheran the other way. In the only other game this season in which Stroman has hit, he doubled on April 25 against the Cardinals.

How much would Aaron Sanchez be worth as a free agent?

Sanchez has already won an ERA title in the majors, and you get the feeling he still isn't done developing as a pitcher. ZiPS agrees, placing the right-hander's worth at a near-record value.
