The Blue Jays are investigating internal operations after six players in their minor league system were suspended in the past week after testing positive for PEDs.
2017 ScheduleAll times ET
The quest to another run at the playoffs might make sense if the Blue Jays can either spend or trade to add an impact bat for the short term.
The Jays need at least one starting pitcher, and they have had success with quality arms that don't miss bats at an elite level. One of the top free-agent starters available fits that description.
The Blue Jays reportedly could join the list of teams interested in free-agent outfielder J.D. Martinez.
Jays acquire Ngoepe, outright two players
The Blue Jays acquired INF Gift Ngoepe from the Pittsburgh Pirates for cash considerations or a player to be named later on Monday. In addition, Toronto outrighted OF Harold Ramirez and RHP Chris Rowley, and 2B Rob Refsnyder was claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Indians.
Roy Halladay, in the final seconds before plummeting into the Gulf of Mexico in his new sport plane two weeks ago, was climbing sharply, a federal report says, citing the plane's data.
While Shapiro and Ross Atkins came from Cleveland with promises of building a sustained winner, they also find themselves in a situation in which 2018 demands real decisions.
As Toronto looks to add a left-hander to upgrade its bullpen, the Jays are reportedly interested in former Red Sox reliever Robbie Ross Jr.
Shortstop Hugo Cardona, infielder Yhon Perez and catcher Leonicio Ventura, all on the Blue Jays' rookie-level Dominican League team, were among the players suspended by Major League Baseball.
A 91-minute "Celebration of Life for Roy Halladay" attracted more than 1,000 people to Spectrum Field in Florida. "The man made the ballplayer," Phillies owner John Middleton, one of nine speakers, said, "not the other way around."
The remake of the Atlanta Braves' management was completed Monday when Alex Anthopoulos was named general manager and John Hart was removed as team president.
The Pirates have a tough call to make with Andrew McCutchen a free agent next year, and the Blue Jays are in the same boat with Josh Donaldson. Which of the two is more likely to change uniforms this winter?
The Blue Jays have reached a crossroads with Josh Donaldson, and they have several options as to where to go from here.
Donaldson was a late bloomer, so he'll hit free agency at 33. However, he's an excellent athlete and guy you would expect to age well, similar to Adrian Beltre in a perfect scenario.
Roy Halladay was flying his sport plane low over the Gulf of Mexico before it crashed into the water, killing the former pitcher, according to witnesses. Investigator Noreen Price said a full investigation could take up to two years.
As a one-year rental, Donaldson's a great fit for any team with an opening at third base, including the Cardinals, Giants, Mets or Angels.
Bo Bichette and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. both had big breakouts, but a year after making the ALCS, the Blue Jays won 76 games and didn't top 10 percent playoff odds after June.
The best and the brightest
The nine 2017 Gold Glove winners from the American League were announced on Tuesday night. The Twins, Angels and Royals each have two players receiving the honor this year.

Blue Jays P Marcus Stroman wins his first career Gold Glove Award. He joined R.A. Dickey as the only pitchers to win one. In roughly the same number of innings as 2016, he had 8 more assists, 4 more double plays and 3 fewer errors.
Former teammates, coaches and executives mourned the loss of Roy Halladay after the former ace died in a flying accident, and they recalled his readiness to work on his game and help others with their own.
A no-doubt Hall of Fame ace who dominated for a decade, Halladay should be remembered for his brilliance on the mound and how he made himself elite.
Roy Halladay brought himself back from one of the worst seasons on the mound by making himself a possibility model other pitchers have emulated ever since.
