Blue Jays' Jose Berrios: Strikes out 10 in loss
Berrios (11-12) took the loss Wednesday, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks over six innings against the Yankees. He struck out 10.
While Berrios ended his campaign with a season-high 10 strikeouts, he gave up two runs on an Aaron Judge homer in the fourth inning before surrendering two more runs in the fifth, as the Yankees handed him a second straight loss. Berrios has allowed four runs in consecutive starts against New York after holding opponents to two runs or fewer in each of his previous three outings. The 29-year-old right-hander will finish the year with a 3.65 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 184 strikeouts across 32 starts (189.2 innings).... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Daulton Varsho: Takes seat Wednesday
Varsho is not in the lineup Wednesday versus the Yankees.
Whit Merrifield, Kevin Kiermaier and George Springer will start across the outfield. Varsho has put up 18 homers and 16 steals in 154 games this season with Toronto, but he holds an underwhelming .220/.285/.382 overall batting line.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Kevin Gausman: Brilliant in no-decision
Gausman did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing three hits and two walks over seven shutout innings against the Yankees. He struck out five.
This marked Gausman's second straight scoreless outing against the Yankees after throwing six shutout innings in a win against New York on Wednesday. Over the two starts, the 32-year-old righty was electric, recording 15 strikeouts over 13 innings while allowing six hits and five walks. Gausman is currently scheduled to start the last Blue Jays game of the regular season at home against the Rays on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Sitting once again
Schneider is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees.
Schneider is without a hit in his past 30 at-bats and finds himself on the bench Tuesday for the fourth time in Toronto's past six games. The 24-year-old had one of the hottest bats in the majors after debuting in early August with seven homers and a 1.415 OPS in his first 21 contests, but his regression over the last couple weeks has been steep. Cavan Biggio has taken on a larger role of late and is batting cleanup as Toronto's second baseman Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Brandon Belt: Returns from injured list
Belt (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The veteran slugger landed on the shelf Sept. 12 with back spasms just after missing the previous eight games due to an illness, but he's now ready to rejoin the Blue Jays for the final stretch of the regular season. Belt had a strong start to the second half with a .971 OPS in his first 30 games coming out of the All-Star break, but he was mired in a 3-for-18 slump prior to his move to the injured list....

Blue Jays' Nate Pearson: Sent back to minors
Pearson was optioned to the Blue Jays' Florida Complex League affiliate Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Jay Jackson is taking his spot in the bullpen. Triple-A Buffalo's season is over, which is why Pearson was sent to the FCL Blue Jays, where he can continue working out in case he's needed later on.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Spencer Horwitz: Sent down to minors
Horwitz was optioned to the Blue Jays' Florida Complex League affiliate on Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Triple-A Buffalo's season is over, which is the reasoning behind Horwitz being sent to the Jays' FCL club. He's clearing out to make room for Brandon Belt's return from the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jay Jackson: Recalled from Triple-A
Jackson was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Jackson boasts a 2.36 ERA and 25:8 K:BB over 26.2 innings this season but has found himself being sent back and forth between the majors and minors simply because he has options. He'll work in middle relief for the Blue Jays.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Damiano Palmegiani: Playing fall ball
Palmegiani will play for the Surprise Saguaros this year in the Arizona Fall League.
A 23-year-old corner infielder whom the Blue Jays selected in the 14th round of the 2021 draft, Palmegiani hit .249 with 19 home runs in 108 games for Double-A New Hampshire before getting promoted to Triple-A Buffalo on Sept. 1. From there, Palmegiani batted .284 with four home runs and 28 strikeouts in 20 games to close the year. Matt Chapman is a free agent this offseason, but Orelvis Martinez is likely ahead of Palmegiani in the internal pecking order for opportunities at the hot corner.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Yusei Kikuchi: Goes four innings vs. Tampa
Kikuchi did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing three runs on nine hits over four innings against Tampa Bay. He struck out seven.
Kikuchi's now gone five straight starts without pitching more than five innings. He appeared to be on a short leash Sunday, throwing just 73 pitches, after departing his previous start against the Yankees with cramps. Kikuchi will carry a 10-6 record with a 3.82 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 177 strikeouts into his final start of the regular season, tentatively scheduled as a rematch next weekend with the Rays....

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Homers twice in win
Guerrero went 2-for-5 with two homers in Sunday's win over the Rays.
Guerrero looks to be back on track after going 1-for-13 in his previous five games. He smacked three homers in three games prior to that. The 24-year-old Guerrero is up to 26 homers and 94 RBI on the year while batting .266 with a .793 OPS through 660 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Davis Schneider: Not in Sunday's lineup
Schneider is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.
Schneider worked as Toronto's primary second baseman for the first half of September, but he's 0-for-30 over his past eight contests and will sit Sunday for the third time in five games. Whit Merrifield will start at second base and bat eighth in the series finale at Tampa Bay.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jordan Romano: Blows fourth save
Romano (5-6) blew the save and took the loss Saturday as the Blue Jays were downed 7-6 by the Rays, giving up two runs on four hits in two-thirds of an inning. He struck out one.
The Toronto closer gave up three straight hits to lead off the ninth inning, but it looked like he might escape the jam with the score still tied 6-6 when he coaxed an apparent double-play grounder from Junior Caminero. Upon replay, the Tampa Bay rookie was judged to be safe at first base, and Josh Lowe followed with a walk-off hit. Romero hadn't blown a save since May 20, ending his streak of successful conversions at 26 -- a Blue Jays franchise record. On the season, the right-hander has a 2.68 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 70:24 K:BB through 57 innings while converting 36 of 40 save chances.... See More ... See Less
