Toronto Blue Jays: What the Jays Can Do to Solidify Their Rotation

The Toronto Blue Jays are off to a fine start to their 2012 regular season.

Sitting third in the division with a 15-11 record through 26 games, the Jays have been impressive through April and early May.

But does the current roster have enough starting pitching to compete all season long? Probably not. The Jays have a rotation stacked with young pitchers who have an incredibly high ceiling, but they don't have a legitimate fifth starter at the moment.

Toronto Blue Jays: Do They Need a New Stadium South of the Border?

The Toronto Blue Jays are a team on the rise and appear to be on the verge of taking the next step in arguably the toughest division in baseball.  

Toronto Blue Jays Schedule: Breaking Down the Month of May

The Toronto Blue Jays have just about wrapped up the first month of the baseball season. There have already been ups and downs for several players, however if there was one thing they showed, it is that the game is never over.

May is a pretty big month for the Blue Jays. Teams are just starting to get settled in and this is their chance to live up to the hype and prove that they are a playoff team.

MLB Spring Training: Toronto Blue Jays Kyle Drabek Will Have Bounce-Back Season

Toronto Blue Jays right-handed pitcher Kyle Drabek may have had a difficult and trying 2011 season, but he has arrived at this year's spring training with a new and fresh perspective that will enable him to adapt and overcome last year's issues.

Jays Talk: Are the Jays 3 Years or 3 Players Away from the Playoffs?

As we head into the dog days of August, Jays fans are just now starting to get excited over the prospects of this team.

Usually around this time of year, it's the lull in the schedule where teams usually just try and play out the string until September, but for the Jays, things look completely different.

The Jays are fighting game in and game out, and are 57-55 in 102 games this season. The team was expected to maybe win at most 75 games this season, so they are definitely ahead of expectations.

2011 MLB Fantasy Baseball: American League Waiver Wire Gems

Brett Lawrie, 2B Toronto Blue Jays (23 percent owned in Yahoo, 22.7 percent in ESPN)

Current Stat Line: 2/4, 1 RBI

Brett Lawrie has finally arrived! He tore up AAA pitching this season going .353/64/18/61/13. In my opinion, the call-up should have happened much earlier—but it didn't. Then Lawrie suffered a hand injury on May 31st which kept him out of the game for a while. Now that it is completely healed, expect him to rake for the Blue jays.

Can Henderson Alvarez Become the Future Closer of the Toronto Blue Jays?

The Toronto Blue Jays have blown 18 saves this year while amassing a grand total of only 23. During Thursday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Blue Jays blew two saves in extra innings, which cost them the game. Coming into the season, the Blue Jays had four former closers on the team, Jason Frasor, Frank Francisco, Jon Rauch and Octavio Dotel.

Toronto Blue Jays: Vernon Wells Is Making GM Anthopoulos Look Better by the Day

It's been a little over three months since Toronto Blue Jays GM, Alex Anthopoulos, dealt Vernon Wells and the remainder of his ridiculous $126 million contract to the Anaheim Angels. The move that shook up Toronto's baseball landscape is making the young Blue Jays GM look better by the day.

His Anaheim counterpart, Angels' GM Tony Reagins...not so much.

Toronto Blue Jays' Injuries Have Prevented Team from Finding Hitting Rhythm

The Toronto Blue Jays started off the year with their named closer Frank Francisco and their second starter Brandon Morrow on the DL. After that came their recently acquired centre fielder Rajai Davis, who went down with a leg injury. Aaron Hill, their second baseman, was working through a hamstring injury in spring training and then re-injured it stealing a base.

Toronto Blue Jays: Dwayne Murphy's Hitting Strategy Ruining the Jays' Hitters?

Sitting at a cool 9-11 record, the Toronto Blue Jays have started out fairly well this season, despite a very difficult schedule, injuries, and lastly, an infusion of young talent into a relatively unsettled lineup.

With that young lineup and changeover on the Jays roster, there is bound to be some bumpy parts of the road right?
