  • Blue Jays Notes: Ryu, Barger, Lopez, Lukes

    Left-hander Hyun Jin Ryu, now nine months out from last summer’s Tommy John surgery, is throwing from 90 to 120 feet and still aiming for a mid-July return to the Blue Jays’ pitching staff, writes Keegan Matheson of MLB.com. He’s throwing off flat ground for now but could progress to mound work by mid-April. The…

  • Whit Merrifield Back In Grapefruit League Lineup

    Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Whit Merrifield (quadriceps) is back in the starting lineup for the Grapefruit League game on Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates and right-hander Mitch Keller. He's starting at second base and batting leadoff. Merrifield suffered a right quadriceps injury last Thursday and hasn't played in a spring game since as a precaution. The 34-year-old is heading into his first full season with Toronto after being acquired from the Kansas City Royals in 2022. He was in serious decline in KC before the trade, but he hit .281 with five home runs and 16 RBI in 44 games with the Jays to close out the year. Merrifield has a better shot to rack up counting stats this year in a better lineup, but fantasy managers shouldn't bank on a return to his All-Star form.

  • Whit Merrifield Dealing With Quad Tightness

    Toronto Blue Jays infielder/outfielder Whit Merrifield (quadriceps) has been out of Grapefruit League games since Friday due to right quadriceps tightness. His injury is considered minor, but the Blue Jays are just being extra cautious with him. Merrifield went through a full workout on Saturday and has more than enough time left in camp to get ready for Opening Day. The 34-year-old was acquired from the Royals in 2022 and finished the season with a combined .250/.298/.375 slash line, career-low .673 OPS, 11 home runs, 58 RBI, 70 runs and 16 stolen bases in 139 games. The two-time All-Star was extremely disappointing with the Royals before the trade, but he finished better in Toronto and should have a bit more appeal in a much better lineup in Toronto over a full season. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect a full rebound, but Merrifield should be able to rack up some nice counting stats if he's Toronto's regular second baseman.

  • Analyzing The Blue Jays' Second Base Possibilities

    The Blue Jays have made a few drastic lineup changes this offseason, sending out Teoscar Hernández and top catching prospect Gabriel Moreno while bringing back Daulton Varsho and signing Kevin Kiermaier. Toronto general manager Ross Atkins recently told reporters he considers the club’s heavy lifting mostly finished, though he left the door open for another small-scale move or two.…
