Glasnow strikes out 5 in return, Rays beat sinking Blue Jays ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Tyler Glasnow figures to be a factor as the Tampa Bay Rays make their playoff push Glasnow struck out five over two innings in his return from a four-month layoff caused by a strained right forearm, and the Rays beat Toronto 8-3 Sunday to complete a four-game sweep that left the Blue Jays as the fifth major league team on pace to lose 100 games. "Honestly I feel very similar to how I felt before I got hurt," Glasnow said. "I think I'll stretch out like a starter and then just build back up to the playoffs." Glasnow struck out Bo Bichette, Teoscar Hernández and Rowdy Tellez in order on 12 pitches in the first, twice reaching 100 mph.

NEW YORK — Blue Jays rookie shortstop Bo Bichette says he's feeling better but trying to "be smart" about his recovery from a head injury.

Bichette was removed from Thursday's game against the Orioles in Baltimore in the bottom of the seventh inning after getting hit in the helmet by a pitch in the sixth.

The 21-year-old Bichette spoke to media Saturday in New York before Toronto's game against the Yankees.

"More tired than usual, a little bit nauseous at times but everyday I've been better so that's all I can hope for," Bichette said when asked about his symptoms.

"I never had any head injuries and it sucks. And obviously you've gotta be more careful, you've only got one brain, so I'm just trying to be as smart as I can with it."

Gregor Chisholm: Blue Jays defence helps give series finale to Red Sox

Gregor Chisholm: Blue Jays defence helps give series finale to Red Sox The Blue Jays’ outfield made a comedy of errors against the Boston Red Sox on Thursday night and it cost them a shot at their first series sweep since the end of July. All three of Toronto’s starting outfielders — and even one of the reserves — were responsible for key misplays in a 7-4 loss to the Red Sox at Rogers Centre. Beleaguered left-fielder Derek Fisher made three of them on his own. Veteran starter Clay Buchholz was charged with four runs, but he might not have surrendered more than one it wasn’t for a series of early defensive miscues.

NEW YORK — Thursday, when Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette was hit in the helmet by a 93-m.p.h. fastball, he was up off the ground and heading to first base before his manager Charlie Montoyo had even reached Blue Jays rookie Bo Bichette trying to ' be smart ' with head injury .

Bichette was hit by a pitch from Gabriel Ynoa in the top of the sixth inning but initially stayed in the game after being assessed on the field by trainers. He made a defensive play on a ground ball in the bottom of the sixth and batted again in the top of the seventh before being replaced by Richard Urena for the bottom of the inning.

Bichette said the symptoms didn't appear right away, but he started to feel "a little bit off" as the game went on. He credited veteran Justin Smoak with convincing him to tell the training staff about his symptoms.

"When I went out to my at bat (in the seventh inning) I felt really weird in the box, so I came back in and actually Smoaky came up to me and said 'hey bro, are you alright?' I was like 'I don't know man, I feel weird.' And he told me 'hey this is nothing to play around with,'" Bichette said. "So that's when I decided I should probably let somebody know I felt different."

Bichette was put in MLB concussion protocol Thursday and was re-evaluated in New York on Friday.

He did not play Friday night in the opener of a three-game series against the Yankees.

Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo said before Friday's game that Bichette will likely miss the entirety of the series.

Bichette is batting .311 with 11 homers and 21 runs batted in through 46 games.

Three needs the Blue Jays should address this offseason .
We’re continuing with our “Three Needs” series, in which we take a look at the chief issues to be addressed for clubs that have fallen out of contention. We’ve already focused on the Mariners, Tigers, White Sox, Marlins, Rangers, Pirates, Angels, Royals and Phillies. Next up: the Blue Jays, who ran up 95 losses but also installed some highly promising core pieces at the MLB level. 1. Open The Wallet For StartersThe Shapiro/Atkins regime has rarely lured significant starters with hefty promises, due in part to the organization’s need to transition away from some big preexisting commitments.
