Jose Bautista went 3-for-3 with a homer, a walk and three runs scored as the Blue Jays crushed the Mariners 14-4 on Monday.

Bautista is crushing it of late, hitting .319 with six homers, 20 RBI and 17 walks in 69 at-bats this month. He might even have an outside shot of leading the AL in OPS. He's up to .940 now, putting him fourth behind Victor Martinez (.973), Jose Abreu (.971) and Mike Trout (.951).

Danny Valencia doubled, tripled and drove in three runs Monday versus the Mariners.

This is pretty much the first good game Valencia has had since the Jays started talking him up as a potential 2015 regular at third base. With three more strikeouts tonight, he has a 19/0 K/BB ratio to go along with his .197 average in 71 at-bats this month. He should only be in the Jays' plans for 2015 as an option against lefties.

Marcus Stroman's suspension has been reduced from six to five games.

He'll begin serving the suspension Sunday and should simply just have his next outing pushing back a day. Stroman holds a 3.77 ERA over 126 2/3 innings for the Blue Jays this season.

Marcus Stroman picked up his 11th win of the season, yielding two runs in six innings as the Blue Jays topped the Yankees 6-3 on Saturday.

The rookie scattered eight hits, striking out seven while walking none. Stroman has had a lot of positives in his first taste of the big leagues, sporting a 3.77 ERA with a 1.20 WHIP and 107/28 K/BB ratio. Stroman will finish out his season on Thursday at home against the Mariners.
Sep 20 - 7:41 PM

Casey Janssen entered the ninth inning to put out a fire, recording the final two outs to pick up his 24th save in Saturday's win against the Yankees.

Brandon Morrow allowed a run to score on a single followed by a double, creating a save situation for Janssen. Though Janssen hit the first batter he faced, he had little trouble escaping the jam, striking out Brendan Ryan and getting Chris Young to line out to second base to end the game. It's been an up-and-down year for Janssen, who is 24-for-29 in save chances with a 4.22 ERA.
Sep 20 - 7:35 PM

Jose Bautista went 2-for-2 with three walks, a solo home run, and four runs scored as the Blue Jays emerged victorious against the Yankees on Saturday.

A huge night for Bautista, who continues to pad his sterling numbers. He hit his 34th home run of the season in the seventh inning off of Chase Whitley, extending the Jays' lead to 5-2 at the time. Bautista has knocked in 101 runs and slashed .284/.405/.527 on the season.

The results of Edwin Encarnacion's precautionary MRI revealed that he's dealing with mild inflammation in his back.

He felt good enough to be in the lineup on Friday and is back out there again on Saturday, so the issue doesn't appear to be serious. With a little more than a week to go, he's hitting .262/.350/.552 with 33 homers and 89 RBI.
Sep 20 - 1:33 PM

Adam Lind is not in the Blue Jays starting lineup for Saturday's afternoon tilt against the Yankees.

It's simply a routine day of rest for Lind against opposing left-hander Chris Capuano. John Mayberry Jr. will get the start in his place at first base and bat sixth for the Jays, with Edwin Encarnacion serving as the designated hitter.
Sep 20 - 1:06 PM

Mark Buehrle was tagged for five runs in six innings in a loss to the Yankees on Friday.

It was his most runs allowed in a start since July 25. Buehrle gave up eight hits (including a two-run homer to Jacoby Ellsbury) and two walks while striking out three. The veteran southpaw has lost three out of his last four decisions and now sits at 12-10 with a 3.53 ERA. He'll look to finish his season on a high note when he faces the Mariners next week.
Sep 19 - 10:12 PM

Edwin Encarnacion smacked a two-run homer in Friday's loss to the Yankees.

Encarnacion underwent a precautionary MRI on his back early Friday, but he felt well enough to play. The 31-year-old now has 33 homers on the year, which ties him for fifth in the American League.
Sep 19 - 10:11 PM

Jose Reyes went 3-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored Friday against the Yankees.

Reyes had two doubles and a single. The veteran shortstop now owns a seven-game hitting streak, including four multi-hit games. He's batting .288 with nine home runs, 48 RBI, 28 stolen bases and 89 runs scored over 135 games.
Sep 19 - 10:10 PM

Edwin Encarnacion recently underwent a precautionary MRI on his back.

Encarnacion's back acts up on him every now and then, but it's not something to be overly concerned about. He's in Friday's lineup as the designated hitter.
Sep 19 - 5:51 PM

Dioner Navarro flew out as a pinch-hitter in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

Navarro didn't play Wednesday after taking a foul tip to the mask Tuesday. He should be back in the lineup this weekend.
Sep 19 - 4:22 AM

R.A. Dickey was handed a no-decision after allowing two runs in six innings as the Blue Jays watched the Yankees walk off 3-2 winners on Thursday.

Dickey was in line for the loss until Jose Bautista tied the game up in the eighth inning with a two-run home run. The knuckleballer had allowed five hits, one of which was a Derek Jeter solo homer, while walking one and striking out three. He's pitched much better as of late, and has lowered his ERA to 3.82 with a 1.25 WHIP and a 165/69 K/BB ratio. Dickey will match up against the Mariners at home on Tuesday in his next outing.
Sep 18 - 10:01 PM

Jose Bautista hit an eighth-inning, game-tying two-run home run, but it wasn't enough as the Blue Jays suffered a walk-off loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

Bautista knotted the contest up at two apiece with his two-run shot off of Shawn Kelley. The slugger had been in a short-term rut, so it wasn't surprising that the Jays entered the game having lost four in a row. Bautista now has 33 home runs, 99 RBI, and a .283/.401/.522 slash line.
