ChiSox ace Mark Buehrle threw just the 17th regular-season perfect game in MLB history today. He's also just the 24th pitcher in MLB history to toss multiple no-hitters, as this is his second.
Thanks to Bauxite Forkball for the heads up.
Former Jays closer B.J. Ryan has signed a minor league deal with the Chicago Cubs. He'll look to join former Toronto teammates Ted Lilly, Reed Johnson and Randy Wells in the Windy City. He's to report to the Cubs rookie-level club in Mesa, Arizona on Sunday.
Fresh on his return from the minor leagues, Jonathan Sanchez tossed a no-hitter for the Giants as they hosted the Padres tonight; the home team won 8-0.
Too bad nobody had Sanchez in the official Batter's Box "Who Will Toss the 2009 Season's First No-No" pool. The cash award, after factoring in the odds, would have been approximately four hundred billion dollars (Canadian).
The Jays have called up outfielder David Dellucci from AAA Las Vegas. To make room, Russ Adams has been designated for assignment.
Update July 3/09 @ 1:00 p.m. - Dellucci will be batting eighth for the Jays and playing in left field in this afternoon's game and will be wearing Lyle Overbay's old number 17. For those of you who have the #17 Overbay jerseys, just slap some duct tape over the name plate and write in Dellucci. Imagine how cool you're going to look at the next home game. You also save hundreds of dollars by not having to order another jersey. Another money-saving tip courtesy of Batter's Box. You're welcome!
