Drew Storen (shoulder) is expected to be activated on Sunday.

Storen was back in the Mariners' clubhouse Saturday following a rehab appearance with Triple-A Tacoma on Friday night. The right-hander has been sidelined with shoulder inflammation for the past two weeks. Storen started the year as a closer candidate for the Blue Jays but instead has pitched to a brutal 5.77 ERA over 48 appearances for Toronto and Seattle.
Sep 3 - 7:17 PM

Mariners placed RHP Drew Storen on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 20, with right shoulder inflammation.

Storen has had an awful year on the whole and had a rough debut with the Mariners in late July, but he allowed just one run over his last nine appearances. The Mariners have called up outfielder Guillermo Heredia to take his place on the active roster.
Aug 22 - 6:24 PM

Mariners acquired RHP Drew Storen and cash from the Blue Jays for RHP Joaquin Benoit.

Storen was designated for assignment by Toronto on Sunday morning after posting a 6.21 ERA in 38 relief appearances. He's making an $8.375 million salary in 2016, and the Jays will cover the majority of what's left. Benoit has also been pretty terrible this season.

Blue Jays designated RHP Drew Storen for assignment.

What a disaster of a season it's been for Storen, who has posted a 6.21 ERA over 38 appearances with the Jays. His velocity has also been down a bit, although he's struck out a batter per inning. Storen will almost surely clear waivers given his $8.375 million salary, although it's possible the Jays will be able to work out a trade.

Drew Storen gave up four runs while retiring just one batter Monday against the Rockies.

Storen gave up two singles and hit two batters before being pulled. Jesse Chavez took over and merely added fuel to the fire in what turned out to be a six-run inning for the Rockies. Storen had been doing solid work the last two months after a horrid April, but tonight's showing pushed his ERA back up to 6.28. His struggles are the biggest reason the Jays will be on the hunt for another setup man next month.
Jun 28 - 12:25 AM

Drew Storen got two outs with a two-run lead for his third save of the year Monday against the Yankees.

The Jays didn't want to use Roberto Osuna tonight, so they turned to Aaron Loup to start the ninth in a 4-0 game. After he surrendered a two-run homer with one out, Storen took over and retired two of the three batters he faced. Storen has picked up three saves this year, but his ERA stands at 6.75.
May 30 - 9:45 PM

Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun reports that the Blue Jays have told teams Drew Storen is available via trade.

The Jays surely aren't in sell mode even after a disappointing start, but it does appear they're willing to deal their setup man for the right return. Storen holds a 7.80 ERA on the season and has seen his velocity drop, although he boasts a 16/4 K/BB ratio across 15 innings. He'll be a free agent after the season. Elliott says scouts from the Braves, Rockies, Royals, Dodgers, Marlins, Padres and Giants were watching the Jays-Twins series this weekend.

Drew Storen danced around trouble to pitch a scoreless ninth inning against the Dodgers on Friday for his second save of the season.

Storen got the nod over Roberto Osuna, who was unavailable for unspecified reasons. He walked Yasmani Grandal to begin the inning before giving up a one-out single to Joc Pederson. Chase Utley reached on a bunt single with two outs to load the bases, but Storen got Corey Seager to fly out to left field to end it. Storen has three straight scoreless appearances under his belt, but still owns an ugly 7.36 ERA on the year.
May 6 - 10:18 PM

Drew Storen was shaky but picked up a save Monday in the Blue Jays' win over the Red Sox.

Storen yielded a two-out RBI double off the Green Monster to Travis Shaw and an RBI single up the middle to Hanley Ramirez, but he was able to strike out David Ortiz looking with a borderline call on the upper-outside corner to preserve Toronto's lead. Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna got the day off after a blister on his right hand opened up during a rough outing on Sunday. The ninth inning still belongs to the 21-year-old right-hander.
Apr 18 - 2:23 PM

After learning he won't be the team's closer, Drew Storen gave up two runs in his inning of work Wednesday against the Twins.

Storen pretty much imploded after being replaced by Jonathan Papelbon in D.C. last year, so it will be interesting to see how he reacts after missing out on the closer gig in Toronto, especially after he matched up pretty well with 0Roberto Osuna this spring (Storen had allowed one run in six innings, Osuna had allowed three runs -- two earned -- in his six innings). Storen should be dropped in mixed leagues that don't count holds. He's a fringe AL-only guy, too, since Osuna should be safe in the job.
Mar 30 - 4:36 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons will announce the team's closer on Wednesday morning.

The Blue Jays were originally expected to make the announcement on Tuesday, but there has been a slight change of plans. It would be a surprise if Drew Storen didn't get the nod, especially since he has a 1.50 ERA in six appearances this spring. Roberto Osuna has a 3.00 ERA in his six Grapefruit League appearances.
Mar 29 - 2:54 PM

Drew Storen and Roberto Osuna both pitched hitless innings Tuesday as the Blue Jays and Orioles played to a 6-6 tie.

Just as they have in their previous three appearances, Storen and Osuna worked in the same game and turned in similar outings. Both have allowed one run in four innings, with those single runs coming in the same game. We still think Storen is going to open up in the closer's role as long as the two keep posting similar results.
Mar 15 - 5:14 PM

Drew Storen pitched a perfect inning Friday against the Red Sox.

Once again, Storen and Roberto Osuna worked on the same day. Once again, they ended up with similar lines, though Osuna did give up a single. Both have allowed one run in three innings this spring, with those lone runs coming on the same day. They're competing to become the Blue Jays' closer.
Mar 11 - 4:02 PM

Both Drew Storen and Roberto Osuna allowed single runs in their innings against the Orioles on Friday.

Well, that doesn't seem likely to affect the closer battle in Toronto. Storen looks like the favorite for saves from here. If nothing else, it makes big economic sense to go with him for a year rather than drive up Osuna's future arbitration paydays.
