Blue Jays Daily: June 12th 2012

Today was a very eventful day in Blue Jays land, as lots of moves happened! Vlad Guerrero was granted his release, Yan Gomes was sent down, and AA said he thinks Brandon Morrow will have to go on the DL. Now for more info on these topics.

How The Vlad Story Went Down
-I read a report that Vlad was going to be released
-I shared the article on twitter, leading to Mike Wilner hearing about it
-Mike confirms the report
-Vlad's agent Bean Stringfellow tells Ken Rosenthal "He has not done so. Not yet." when asked about Vlad and opting out
-Report from Enrique Rojas says Vlad has given Blue Jays until 1:30 to decide if they would like to call him up, or release him
- Vlad is granted his release

I don't think Vlad was a jerk about this whole situation. He wanted to play in the majors, and the Jays werent giving him that opportunity. He feels like he could produce, so he asked to leave, thats it.

Yan Gomes was sent down earlier today to make room for the second pitcher called up last night(Either Crawford or Laffey, you decide). I have a feeling that he isn't going to leave Toronto, as he will likely be called up again some time soon because I assume Brandon Morrow will be going on the DL.

Brett Cecil is starting for the Las Vegas 51's tonight, instead of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, which I believe is because he is going to take Morrow's spot come Sunday. AA told the media that he is throwing 90-92 now, up from 84-88 that he was throwing in Spring Training.
