Didn't we have every arm blow up a couple of years ago?

I'd also factor in the change of the DL from 15 days to 10 days.  Much easier decision to place a guy on the DL for 5 less days when they have an injury.

So, what do we think about the Jays' first round picks?

I'll give you a really solid opinion in about 4 years.

Shortstop who likely ends up at 2B, and a starting pitcher who likely ends up in the bullpen? I mean, they didn't go off the board or anything, so, considering what was likely available, they probably did okay.

I'm only going by what the guys at the draft said but getting a power arm who could be in the bullpen soon seems like a good idea.

Ezequiel Carrera hurt now too and on the 10 day dl.
Jays just can't seem to get any relief on the injury front this year. Just when they get a player or two back from injury another one or two go on the dl. It's mid-June and they still haven't been able to field a full healthy roster this season.

Trade Osuna?  It's doable, plausible, even possible, but really...would you??

Robeto Osuna has been one of the best and biggest breakout stories in baseball. Gauge him by strikeouts, walks, home runs, groundball rate, hard-hit rate, and many other metrics, and hes having the best season of his three-year major league career, and also one of the best for any reliever in the game.

Hes only 22 years old, making the league minimum, and cant test free agency until after the 2020 season. By many different measures, hes a blue-chip asset for any team to have.

And thats exactly why the Blue Jays should trade him as soon as possible...


The "why" explained here:

Another day, another injury!
Joe Smith to the 10 DL with shoulder inflammation, Leonel Campos has been called up to take his spot. Smith has been one of the better arms in the Jays pen this season, so not good news. Tepera will slide into the set-up role while Smith is out.

To buy or sell, that is the question...posed to Jays' President Mark Shapiro:

Quote
With six weeks to go before the trade deadline, I asked Mark Shapiro about the Blue Jays' position. Here's what he had to say about it:

"Were in a position where we have a lot of talent. The team will make the decision for us. Wish it would be clearer, but our only mindset right now is that we look at ourselves in the thick of things.

Were hoping we separate ourselves because we have the talent to do it. Thatll make it certainly easier to make a decision. Were looking for ways to get better.

Hasnt been one thing consistently thats been an issue. At times our defense hasnt been good, starting pitching has been by and large pretty good, but weve had hiccups there, And offense hasnt bee on track the way we wanted."
