Jays Split First Two Games in Angels Series,Eveland Designated For Assignment

The power hitting Blue Jays won on Monday night with no home runs but lost on Tuesday with three solo shots. Brett Cecil threw a gem while he allowed just three hits in eight innings on Monday night.On Tuesday night Ricky Romero was pitching for the first time in California in front of his family and friends, but he could not take the pressure as he allowed seven runs in his worst start if the season.

After Jose Baustista`s 5th inning bomb, he became the MLB leader in home runs with a total of 15,just one shy of his season best 16 that came in 2006,in which he only played 117 games. Bautista has 15 through only 45 games this season.

On Sunday afternoon Dana Eveland,number five starting pitcher for the Jays,was designated for assignment after some poor starts.Eveland has ten days to be traded,claimed off of waivers,or be released.If none of those happen he will be sent down to AAA Las Vegas 51`s of the Pacific Coast league. David Purcey was called up to the show to pitch in the bullpen.The Jays will likely go with a four-man rotation until rehabbing Jesse Litsch comes back next month.

First Pitch goes in about an hour (7:05) in Anaheim.
Brandon Morrow (3-4,6.80) vs. Joel Pineiro (3-5,5.50)


  1. do you think the jays could put themselves back together at home after 3-4 on the road trip???

  2. After going 3-5 on this eight game road trip i think the Jays should retur to the form of what they were before it.They lost some close game on the trip and should be right back where they started.
