MacArthur: Jays entering crucial period of Anthopoulos' tenure

With 12 days to go before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline and an injury-riddled team in freefall, general manager Alex Anthopoulos finds himself in an unenviable position: cash-strapped at a time when the American League East is ripe for the picking, struggling to balance a win now mentality while keeping an eye to the future, the need to preserve the top end of the club's prospect pool. TSN Radio 1050's Scott MacArthur has more. ...more

MacArthur: Bizarre roster move kicks off Jays' second half

Unless the Blue Jays are laying the groundwork to promote top pitching prospect Aaron Sanchez from Triple-A, Friday's roster move is at best pointless and at worst, a hindrance. As TSN Blue Jays reporter Scott MacArthur says, it's hard to see how the acquisition of left-hander Brad Mills off waivers from Oakland on Thursday, followed by the optioning to Buffalo of right-hander Chad Jenkins on Friday, makes the Blue Jays a better baseball team. ...more

MacArthur: Jays' All-Stars sense chance, want club improved

MacArthur: Jays stumble into break but remain East contenders

The Blue Jays limped into the All-Star Break off a 2-8 road trip around the continent, taxing in terms of games lost, bodies injured and miles traveled. But as TSN Blue Jays reporter Scott MacArthur explains, the team still has plenty of hope against a struggling AL East with just 66 games to go. ...more

MacArthur: Time for Blue Jays, Santos to part ways

To say Sergio Santos is struggling would be an understatement. As TSN Blue Jays reporter Scott MacArthur reports, to suggest a mutual parting of the ways between the Blue Jays and their former closer after two and a half injury-interrupted seasons would be right on the mark. ...more

MacArthur: Anthopoulos says Lind injury a "non-story"

Minutes after his Blue Jays toughed out an 8-5 victory over the division rival Rays, general manager Alex Anthopoulos stood with assembled media in the bowels of Tropicana Field, incredulous over the degree to which Adam Lind's fractured right foot had become a topic of conversation. "I just think there isn't a whole lot going on in the city right now and on an off day it was a story," said Anthopoulos. ...more

MacArthur: Lind's prognosis improves, Gibbons defends doctors

MacArthur: Lind's mother knows best, Jays' DH out 6-8 weeks

Adam Lind will be lost to the Blue Jays for most of the second half of the season with a fracture in his right foot. As Scott MacArthur of TSN Radio 1050 writes, not only does the injury do further damage to the club's hopes of a first playoff appearance in more than 20 years, it damages the franchise's reputation because of how the injury was diagnosed. ...more

Erik Kratz is back with the Blue Jays for a third time, recalled on Wednesday when the club placed outfielder Cole Gillespie on the disabled list with an abdominal strain.
