Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Todd Redmond from Triple-A Buffalo.
Toronto designated Redmond for assignment in mid-May, but he opted to remain with the organization and is now getting another crack at the major league level. The veteran right-hander allowed 11 runs in 8 1/3 innings earlier this season with the Blue Jays and he has not posted good numbers at Triple-A. He'll be a low-leverage reliever. Jun 22 - 12:35 PM

According to Ben Nicholson-Smith of, the Blue Jays are calling up Todd Redmond.

Redmond was designated for assignment by the Jays last month after allowing 11 runs in 8 1/3 innings, but Toronto is desperate again for relief help. The veteran right-hander has posted a 5.23 ERA in 10 1/3 innings at Triple-A Buffalo since his demotion there in late May.
Jun 22 - 9:43 AM

Blue Jays sent RHP Todd Redmond outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

Redmond has been knocked around for 11 runs over 8 1/3 innings for the Jays this season. He'll provide Triple-A depth.
May 29 - 1:42 PM

Blue Jays designated RHP Todd Redmond for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Scott Copeland on the active roster. Redmond was knocked around for three runs over four innings in a spot start against the Angels on Monday.
May 19 - 3:16 PM

Todd Redmond struggled in a spot start Monday, allowing three runs over four innings but escaping with a no-decision in a 10-6 win over the Angels.

He yielded four hits -- including a home run -- while walking one and striking out three. The Blue Jays have to feel like they stole one here, as Redmond predictably struggled while they got their other rotation members extra rest but they still came away with a victory. Redmond figures to be sent back down soon.
May 18 - 5:11 PM

Todd Redmond will make a spot start for the Blue Jays on Monday afternoon against the Angels.

Redmond was designated for assignment by the Jays in mid-April after allowing eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings of relief and he passed through waivers unclaimed. It's not like the 30-year-old right-hander has been tearing it up at Triple-A, either. Things could get messy for the home team Monday at Rogers Centre.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Todd Redmond from Triple-A Buffalo.

The 30-year-old right-hander was brutal in his first stint with the big league club, allowing eight runs over 4 1/3 innings of work (16.62 ERA). He'll work in long relief for the Jays.

Blue Jays designated RHP Todd Redmond for assignment.

Redmond had allowed eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings of relief this season for Toronto. The 29-year-old righty will probably make it through waivers unclaimed.
Apr 16 - 2:45 PM

Todd Redmond picked up a three-inning save in a 12-2 game against the Royals on Saturday.

Redmond allowed one run in the three innings, but it was unearned. He's primarily been a mopup man this year after doing a nice job as a starter last season, and he won't be a candidate for fantasy value unless he sneaks back into the rotation at some point.

Todd Redmond allowed four runs -- three earned -- in six innings and struck out eight Saturday in the Blue Jays' 9-4 win over the Tigers.

Assuming there are no setbacks in the final week, it looks like Drew Hutchison, Brandon Morrow and J.A. Happ will round out Toronto's rotation, leaving Redmond as a middle-relief possibility. The Jays are crowded there, with Redmond, Esmil Rogers and Jeremy Jeffress all out of options. One could be traded to ease the logjam. Rogers seems the most likely to go in that scenario.

Todd Redmond yielded two runs in five innings Sunday as the Blue Jays edged the Orioles 4-3 in 10 innings.

Redmond struck out four in his best outing so far this spring. He's probably fallen out of the rotation picture with Drew Hutchinson looking like a lock and J.A. Happ still favored for the other opening. However, he remains a candidate for middle relief, and if he pitches well there, he'll get another look as a starter later on.

Todd Redmond gave up three runs and two homers in his two innings of work Sunday against the Yankees.

Eduardo Nunez and Carlos Beltran hit back-to-back homers off him in the third. Redmond was a pleasant surprise for the Blue Jays last year, amassing a 4.32 ERA and a 76/23 K/BB ratio in 77 innings over his 14 starts and three relief appearances. However, he still appears to be something of a long shot to open this year back in the rotation. That he is prone to the homer hurts his candidacy, but last year's strikeout rate was pretty promising.
Sun, Mar 2, 2014 04:54:00 PM

Todd Redmond yielded two runs over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday’s 3-2 extra innings win over the Orioles.

Redmond was fortunate to only give up the two runs. He allowed a pair of solo homers, but that’s all he was charged with despite giving up eight hits and walking a pair. Redmond has been better than expected during his time in the Blue Jays’ rotation this season, posting a 3.80 ERA while striking out 71 over 68 2/3 frames. He’s in line to start the regular season finale on Sunday against the Rays.
Tue, Sep 24, 2013 11:42:00 PM

Todd Redmond pitched seven innings of one-run ball and struck out seven in a win over the Yankees on Thursday.

It's not all that shocking that Redmond is having some modest success in the majors, but that he's managed 73 strikeouts in 70 2/3 innings while facing an AL East schedule qualifies as a big surprise. It also provides some hope that he can help the Blue Jays next year. The home run ball is always going to be an issue, though. He gave up his 11th tonight, a solo shot to Curtis Granderson in the sixth.
