Alex Anthopoulos went to Buffalo looking for strikeouts from Daniel Norris. He saw only one. But he liked the fact that Norris finished seven innings.
Whether measured by strikeouts or innings, Alex Anthopoulos remains firm that Norris's promotion will not be hasty

If only the rest of the Blue Jays' rotation could do what Mark Buehrle does, Alex Anthopoulos wouldn't be beating the bushes for a starting pitcher.

In a loss to Boston, R.A. Dickey pitched six solid innings again. He and Mark Buehrle do that regularly. The rest of the Blue Jays' starters do not, and therein lies a weakness that Alex Anthopoulos is diligently trying to address.
Dickey gave up three runs in six innings. Untimely walks hurt him. And the Blue Jays’ high-powered offence experienced ignition trouble

Roberto Osuna called out Russ Martin for a chat. The result: a perfect sequence of pitches and a win for the Blue Jays.
Osuna’s first pitch to Moreland whizzed past him at 98 miles an hour, up at the hands, just as Martin drew it up. Moreland swung and missed

The Blue Jays won 12-2. They hit four homers. Edwin Encarnacion hit a slam ad a solo shot. On any other night, the contribution of Devon Travis might have been a footnote.
The rookie second baseman was back in the Blue Jays’ lineup after missing 36 games with a shoulder injury

Hockey was a boyhood passion for Blue Jays rookie Matt Boyd. That's how he came to find moose on the streets of Toronto during his first visit to the city.
When Matt Boyd was five years old, Don Cherry was his muse. And when he visited Toronto for the first time, hockey was his ticket

R.A. Dickey's knuckleball is tough on catchers, and on umpires too, he says.
Dickey acknowledges his pitch is tough on umpires. He also believes he has been getting fewer strikes on close pitches than in the past

Scouting reports and video might help, but there's no substitute for seeing a new pitcher first-hand. So Pete Walker and Dioner Navarro learned a lot during Matt Boyd's debut with the Blue Jays.
It was a generally impressive debut. But it might have been better if pitching coach Pete Walker and catcher Dioner Navarro had known then what they know now

Despite losing to Texas, Blue Jays pitcher Matt Boyd feels pretty positive about his major-league debut. "He ought to feel good," said his manager.
With Aaron Sanchez on the disabled list and Scott Copeland having failed his audition, the Jays decided to try Boyd, a 6-foot-3 left-hander

After pitching "kind of like a coward" after reaching Double-A last year, Blue Jays prospect Matt Boyd took heed of an old bit of advice from his dad. Now he appears to be on the fast track to Toronto.
Whether for a spot start with the Jays or a longer-term audition, Boyd certainly has earned consideration
