The Jays have said recently that Nate Pearson needs to pitch multiple innings before being considered for a call-up. He did that on Saturday but it didn't go well. He came into the game in the seventh inning with one out. He walked the lead off hitter who promptly stole second base. Pearson then spotted the runner looking to third and picked him off. He then got the third out.

Buffalo scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh with a Trevor Schwecke two run home run. That gave them a 4-3 lead and put Pearson in line for the win. Pearson started the eighth single, walk, single, double and that was it. He did pitch in multiple innings but it was not a success.

The Bisons used five pitchers. Of note Hayden Juenger gave up another home run, not an unusual occurrence.

Schwecke and Davis Schneider had two hits each. Addison Barger ha done hit, a double. It came off ex-Jay Patrick Murphy.


Bisons lost 7-4.

Thatís unfortunate. He must have been watching the Jays BP in the last week.

Why doesn't the FO just say straight up NP won't be joining the Jays this year due to his command/control problems?

I mean these issues have been evident to anyone who actually watched him pitch over the last few years, but everyone just falls in love (to a fault) with the radar gun with NP and "prospect rankings" which are not an exact science.

Today's Bisons game has been rained out. They have three road games remaining.

Because it would be hard to say that with a straight face when Yusei Kikuchi could walk by at any moment waving his $36 million around.

Baseball America looked at 2022 draftees with top level exit velocities. One Blue Jay made the list.

Peyton Williams, 1B, Blue Jays: On the opening day of Cape Cod League play this summer, Williams homered off of Carson Whisenhunt in arguably one of the most heavily scouted games of the summer. Taken by the Blue Jays with the 218th pick in the draft, the large-bodied first baseman (6-foot-5 255 pounds) has country strength in his imposing frame. While Williams is capable of hitting tape measure home runs, itís his balance of contact and approach that drives his profile. He walked as much as he struck out during his spring campaign with Iowa and posted a .383 on-base percentage with Low-A Dunedin in his pro debut. While his overall line during his pro debut wasnít impressive, Williamsí power did show up in his exit velocity data with a 90th percentile exit velocity just a shade below 105 mph. He is a talented hitter with potentially plus game power with a first base-only defensive profile.

Addison Barger just hit a game-tying 3 run homer in the 9th. If Gameday is accurate, it was way gone.
