Blue Jays manager John Schneider told reporters today, including MLB.com’s Keegan Mathisoncompletely Michael White Treats elbow inflammation. It looks like the injury will force White to start the season on the injured list, as he was already slowed down earlier this spring by a shoulder impingement.
Toronto acquired White, 28, in a trade from the Dodgers last summer and he has struggled, posting a 7.74 ERA in 43 major league innings with the Blue Jays last year. Despite these alarming numbers, White looked a little better than you might suggest. BABIP’s high of . 368 and strikeout rate of just 54.3% during his time in Toronto last year helped explain his strong FIP of 3.76 even as his strikeout rate dropped to just 15..3% with the Blue Jays. White also looked better in the first half with Los Angeles, posting a 3.70 ERA with a 19.8 percent strikeout rate in 56 innings for the Dodgers.
Given his success with the Dodgers and his bad luck during his first stint with the Blue Jays, White seemed likely to make the Bulls a primary option for the club’s long-relief. Since this was no longer possible, Matheson showed it well zackpop Looks curated to make the Opening Day menu. Pope has impressed in 39 innings in 2022 split between Toronto and Miami, hitting 2.77 pounds largely buoyed by a 2.96 FIP.
While this setup would leave the Blue Jays without a traditional long linebacker in the bullpen, Schneider didn’t seem to like it. he tells reporters That bob and his good friend Trevor RichardWho opened four games for the Jays last year as a starter, the two could be options for entering multiple innings if needed.
Schneider’s comments follow another round of criticism Blue Jays camp discountIncluding previous major prospects Nate Pearson. Pearson, now a 26-year-old right-hander, missed most of the 2022 season due to aggressive mono after suffering a 5.18 ERA in 33 major league innings over the 2020 and 2021 seasons, but that opportunity won’t come on Opening Day.
Among the cuts today was also the right hand Zack Thompson, who was acquired by Toronto from the Pirates earlier this season after hitting a 5.18 ERA in 121 2/3 innings in a pivotal role for Pittsburgh last year. Thompson’s numbers will be a deep choice for the Blue Jays’ rotation this year with players like Thomas Hatch And Francois BodinWhich was also among the major cuts in today’s league camps.
