Blue Jays recalled RHP Chad Jenkins from Triple-A Buffalo.

The 27-year-old is the next in a long line of relievers that the Blue Jays will trot out this season. He posted a 2.89 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 10/4 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 innings at Buffalo before being recalled.

Blue Jays recalled RHP Steve Delabar from Triple-A Buffalo.

The 31-year-old hurler was off to a terrific start for Buffalo, compiling a 1.08 ERA, 0.72 WHIP and 7/2 K/BB ratio over 8 1/3 innings. He'll work in middle relief for the Blue Jays.
May 3 - 8:41 PM

Blue Jays optioned RHP Scott Copeland to Triple-A Buffalo.

His stay in the Blue Jays bullpen was extremely short-lived, serving as an extra arm for just a couple of days. He'll continue to provide organizational bullpen depth and should get another chance with the big league club later in the year.
May 3 - 8:38 PM

Jays optioned RHP Miguel Castro to Triple-A Bufalo.

Castro started the season off with a bang when he usurped the closer's role from Brett Cecil, but has struggled mightily of late. He'll look to improve his command and get back on track in the minors before rejoining the Blue Jays bullpen later in the season.
May 3 - 8:36 PM

Drew Hutchison got a no-decision after giving up six runs in 4 1/3 innings of work on Sunday in a 10-7 loss to the Indians.

The Jays staked Hutchison to a 6-1 lead after the top of the fourth inning, but the right-hander gave a run back in the bottom-half, then contributed to a six-run fifth. He gave up eight hits in total along with a walk and two strikeouts. There's been a lot more bad than good for Hutchison thus far, as his ERA is now 7.47 with a 1.60 WHIP and a 23/12 K/BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings. He'll try to turn things around in a weekend start at home against the Red Sox.
May 3 - 4:41 PM

Russell Martin went 2-for-5 with a solo home run as the Blue Jays lost to the Indians on Sunday.

With the Blue Jays down four runs in the top of the ninth, Martin hit a solo home run off of Cody Allen, but it didn't matter much. It's the fifth of the year for the catcher. He has done his part at the plate, batting .227/.366/.493 with 15 RBI.
May 3 - 4:33 PM

Devon Travis blasted a grand slam, but it wasn't enough for the Blue Jays as they fell to the Indians on Sunday.

Travis, who finished 1-for-5, put the exclamation mark on the Jays' six-run fourth inning with a grand slam off of Trevor Bauer, temporarily putting his team on top 6-2. The rookie second baseman has done nothing but hit, as he's the proud owner of a .318/.394/.625 triple-slash line with seven home runs and 23 RBI.
May 3 - 4:28 PM

Russell Martin went 3-for-5 with a home run Saturday in the Blue Jays' 11-4 rout of the Indians.

Martin slugged a solo shot off 2014 American League Cy Young Award winner in the top of the fourth inning, singled in the top of the sixth, and then doubled and scored his second run of the game in the ninth. The 32-year-old catcher got off to a sluggish start with his new team, but he now boasts an .821 OPS with four home runs, 14 RBI, and 15 runs scored in 22 games.
May 2 - 7:56 PM

Aaron Sanchez limited the Indians to two runs in 5 2/3 innings Saturday to earn his second victory.

Sanchez did walk six, but he did a good job of damage control in only allowing four hits. There was talk earlier this week that the 22-year-old right-hander might be moved back to the bullpen, but getting a win Saturday in Cleveland will probably prevent that from happening anytime soon. Sanchez will carry a 4.62 ERA and 1.70 WHIP into his next outing at home against the Red Sox.
May 2 - 7:52 PM

Blue Jays designated 1B Andy Wilkins for assignment.

The 26-year-old slugger was claimed off waivers from the White Sox at the end of spring training. He was off to a slow start at Triple-A Buffalo, hitting .264/.353/.319 with no homers and nine RBI in his first 21 games. There's a chance he could attract interest elsewhere.
May 2 - 9:32 AM

Blue Jays designated RHP Matt West for assignment.

The 26-year-old hurler is a former second-round pick but has dealt with many injuries throughout the year and has yet to pitch in 2015. It's unlikely that he's claimed on waivers and should remain in the Blue Jays organization.
May 2 - 9:30 AM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Scott Copeland from Triple-A Buffalo.

It's unclear how the 27-year-old will be utilized by the Blue Jays, though they are in need of a long reliever with Marco Estrada set to join the rotation. Copeland posted a 1.44 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 13/8 K/BB ratio over 25 innings through his first four starts of the season at Triple-A Buffalo.
May 1 - 10:56 PM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of OF Ezequiel Carrera from Triple-A Buffalo.

With Dalton Pompey heading to Triple-A to refine his offensive game, Carrera could have a shot at fairly regular playing time in the Jays outfield. The 27-year-old was off to a tremendous start at the dish in the minor leagues, hitting .333/.419/.413 with six stolen bases in 20 games.
May 1 - 10:54 PM

Blue Jays optioned OF Dalton Pompey to Triple-A Buffalo.

The 22-year-old speedster has not hit as the Jays had hoped he would to begin the season, slashing just .203/.276/.354 with two homers, six RBI and a 20/6 K/BB ratio in 79 at-bats. He'll look to get back on track getting the benefit of everyday at-bats at Triple-A.
May 1 - 10:51 PM

Blue Jays optioned LHP Andrew Albers to Triple-A Buffalo.

Albers was only with the Jays for one day as emergency bullpen depth and will immediately head back to Buffalo. He should get another opportunity with the Jays at some point during the season.
