Jays call up prospects Danny Jansen (catcher) and Sean Reid-Foley (pitcher) in time for Monday's road series against the KC Royals.

To make room on the roster, catcher Russell Martin is slated at third base (in place of the injured Solarte) and Richard Ureña is sent back down.

It doesn't appear that the Jays have any intention of calling up Vladimir Guerrero Jr.

FYI, it was Danny Barnes who was sent down to make room for Reid-Foley NOT Richard Urena.

The Blue Jays obtained the other player that was part of the Oh trade to Colorado, (and was to be included later), and that player is prospect  Bryan Baker a RH pitcher.

The Blue Jays seem to be in a Catch 22 situation with Josh Donaldson.  It's a case of damn if they do and damn if they don't.   It's certainly a gamble alright.

In fact, according to reports, a portend of what the Jays could obtain for Donaldson: next to nothing, a minor leaguer at best, if they'd be lucky enough to even get a valuable minor leaguer.

The Daniel Murphy trade yesterday to the Chicago Cubs (from the Washington Nationals) may illustrate the above perfectly:

The best of a worst case scenario would most probably play out this way:

Should have traded him last off season, he is an injury away from gone gone gone and for those who couldn't see it coming, well that is the blind leading the blind. He had value, its not coming back and we are not going to see S__t for him.

Exactly.   :)

It's a classic case of too little, too late.

I haven't followed Osuna at all since the trade but Giles is a very very good replacement.

Giles appears to be the capable closer for far as to what we've seen.  Definitely a positive there.

Donaldon not eligible to clear waivers yet...


..in which he will  start rehab assignment in Dunedin tomorrow (Tueday)..

The waiver trade deadline is August 31st. 

Reports also indiicated that Donaldson's locker was cleared out, leading to speculation the Jays are focusing on trading him.

As for Tulowitzki, the Jays announced that he will not play this year.  Even though he will be out, Tulowitzki is determined to return to full  health next season (2019) and vie for the competitive role of shortstop.  Competitve position because of Gurriel and Diaz in competing roles.

How Kendrys Morales went from being the worst Blue Jay hitter early in the season to being the best -- and into the record books.

Morales will be donating his bat to Cooperstown.  Not only did he set a club record in hitting seven home runs in seven consecutive games, he is also the seventh MLB player to have done and thus in a four-way tie in that category.
