Blue Jays designate veteran reliever Jason Grilli for assignment

A large cardboard packing box sat in the stall normally occupied by Jason Grilli in the Toronto Blue Jays clubhouse on Tuesday afternoon.

Toronto Blue Jays news and notes for June 27th, 2017.

.

"This will hopefully give him a fresh start somewhere else", said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons.

Baltimore's Brad Brach allowed the fourth homer of the season by Troy Tulowitzki with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning before earning his 14th save of the season. Smith Jr., who impressed with a.370/.414/.444 slash line in 12 games with Toronto, will look to return to the Major League Baseball if an injury arises or the Blue Jays need another outfielder when rosters expand in September. Leone pitched around a walk to finish the inning.

The Jays have been 12-20 in intra-division games in the East and are 2-8 vs. the Orioles. "He pitched a lot with his fastball early and went to some other pitches the second and third time round the order".

He allowed seven hits - three of them home runs - and seven runs in four innings at Texas on Thursday, when he said he did not have a feel for any of his pitches.

The Orioles did all the scoring they would need with a two-out rally against Joe Biagini in the first. Jose Bautista went 2 for 4 while Russell Martin, Kendrys Morales and Steve Pearce each logged base hits of their own in the win. Herrera, arguably the Phillies' best base runner, usually has a green light, but Mackanin felt that Herrera stealing and opening up first base would have prompted the D-Backs to intentionally walk Cameron Rupp to get to the pitcher's spot in the lineup. In the third, Schoop doubled and came across on a single by Adam Jones. And in the second inning, he erased a leadoff walk to Justin Smoak with a strikeout-throwout double play with the help of catcher Welington Castillo, who threw Smoak out at second. Additionally, the Jays optioned outfielder Dwight Smith Jr. with Ezequiel Carrera being activated from the disabled list. Grilli was 2-4 with a 6.97 ERA in 26 games.

Gausman snapped his winless streak against his favorite opponent: he's 2-0 with a 1.99 ERA in four starts against the Blue Jays. "He gets on base and draws a lot of walks, and he's risky when he's hitting", Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said of Bautista, who homered and drove in a season-high four runs in Sunday's 8-2 rout of Kansas City.
