    Funny thing is Pillar isn't even having a good season. The homeruns are there but the rest of the numbers aren't good.

    85 players this year have 500+ PA. 63 of them have 20+ HR. I wouldn't look too much into it.

    With the Giants he has a 1.8 WAR which is fairly decent.

    Both are Rule 5 eligible so we either add them now or in a few months. Might as well add them now and see what they got for a few starts.

    Neither are likely to stay with the Jays for 6 continuous years so they will be optioned down at some point to give us the option at the extra year. But if they aren’t then that means they are playing better than expected.

    Wilner was saying this week no way they call up someone not on the 40 man.

    If players are Rule 5 eligible, it doesn't hurt to add them and get a look at them now.

    The problem is they have to stay on it. The 40 man space can be valuable. It’s not a problem.

    They do have to keep them on the 40 man. But with a first rounder and a pitcher they got 2 months ago, you'd hate to lose either in Rule 5 without getting a look at them at the major league level. They have to be added to the 40 man to avoid the Rule 5 anyway.

    If I was guessing, I'd say Wilner didn't really think through his comment - but was looking for a subtle way of saying Pearson isn't being added to the 40 man before the end of the year to waste a spot.

    Scott Mitchell says Zuech will pitch behind opener Font tonight and Kay will pitch either Saturday or Sunday in Tampa.

    Jays thought they had a done deal of Ken Giles for 3 prospects with the Yankees but New York backed out.

    Sounds like the Yankees screwed us over;

    Probably a good thing it fell through. We don't exactly fare well in trades with the Yankees.

    How many high leverage relievers do the Yankees need? Lol. I guess enough to cover for their shitty rotation.

    Baseball America revised its top 100 prospect list, it’s not a full reordering though:

    7. Nate Pearson
    38. Jordan Groshans

    Could be a big part of the future, Groshans 3B - Vlad at 1B. Wouldn't be against trading some prospect capital for a youngish 3B like Jose Ramirez or Brian Anderson though :naughty: Miami is due to make a stupid trade
