Blue Jays’ Reid-Foley recalled from Triple-A
Blue Jays recalled RHP Sean Reid-Foley from Triple-A Buffalo. He'll return to the Blue Jays' rotation on Sunday against the Marlins in Miami. Given the club's position in the standings, they'd be wise to let Foley make several starts down the stretch to see what they have in the 23-year-old right-hander heading into 2019.
Blue Jays to start Brigham in place of Pablo Lopez
Jeff Brigham will start and make his MLB debut Sunday against the Blue Jays. Brigham posted a 2.36 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 94/22 K/BB ratio across 95 1/3 innings in the minors this year, and now the Marlins want to see what he can do at the highest level. The Jays are beatable and even with this being the 26-year-old's debut, there's some streaming appeal here.
