Ferguson: Jays trading for Rays' Price or Zobrist not likely

There was talk the Toronto Blue Jays were scouting Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price and might have an interest in the multi-talented Ben Zobrist.

Ferguson: Bumps in the road for Syndergaard and D'Arnaud

There were plenty of critics who thought the Blue Jays gave up too much to the New York Mets for knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.

There could be some history made on Friday night in Buffalo. Mike Hessman of the Toledo Mudhens needs one more homer to break the all-time International League career home run mark.

Ferguson: Blue Jays' huge May boosts team's confidence

It's not to say that one 20-win month, like the Toronto Blue Jays' month of May, guarantees you a playoff spot, but one huge month can provide a team with an incredible boost of confidence and provide a bit of a cushion for the inevitable cold spells as the season unwinds.
