MacArthur: Blue Jays like Morrow out of the bullpen

It’s easy to get caught up in small sample sizes and to envision a player excelling in a role in which he’s spent far too little time performing at a high level. But there’s something about Brandon Morrow’s weekend at Fenway Park that’s hard to ignore. TSN 1050's Scott MacArthur has more. ...more

MacArthur: Rasmus won't benefit from Cabrera's injury

MacArthur: Rookie Sanchez unfazed by Janssen controversy

Aaron Sanchez is the really talented kid caught in an unnecessarily strange situation. He’s in the big leagues for the first time, dominating almost every time he’s used out of the bullpen and, because of that, he’s consistently finding himself in high-leverage, late-game situations.

MacArthur: New-look Jays enter season's final month

The Blue Jays welcomed nine new faces -- okay, some of them returning and not so new -- to the clubhouse in time for Tuesday's series opener against the Rays and out of that group, the homegrown prospect offered up the best line about being called up. TSN 1050's Scott MacArthur has more. ...more

McArthur: Janssen's role with Jays tied to use of Sanchez

In the Blue Jays two most recent wins prior to Sunday's series finale with the Yankees, two different pitchers have picked up saves. Neither is named Casey Janssen. This leads one to wonder what Janssen's role will be as the final month of the season begins. ...more

MacArthur: Pillar impressing; Buehrle aiming for 200 innings

As TSN Blue Jays Reporter Scott MacArthur writes, Kevin Pillar is doing his best to refute the old saying that you never get a second chance to make a first impression while manager John Gibbons is eager to help Mark Buehrle throw 200-plus innings for a 14th-straight year. ...more
