    Blue Jays bring back LHP Travis Bergen from D-backs for cash

    TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays reacquired left-hander Travis Bergen from the Arizona Diamondbacks for cash on Sunday. Toronto also placed right-hander Patrick Murphy on the 60-day injured list with a sprained right shoulder. The 27-year-old Bergen began last season with the Blue Jays and made one appearance before getting traded to Arizona on Aug. 31 for pitcher Robbie Ray and cash. Bergen finished 1-0 with a 3.24 ERA and one save in eight relief outings combined. He struck out 11 and walked nine in 8 1/3 innings. Bergen pitched for the San Francisco Giants in 2019, going 2-0 with a 5.49 ERA in 21 games. He was selected by the Blue Jays in the seventh round of the 2015 amateur draft out of Kennesaw State University and plucked by the Giants in the Rule 5 draft at the December 2018 winter meetings. San Francisco returned him to Toronto in August 2019. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press

    Kay perfect as Blue Jays edge Yankees 6-4 in spring training

    TAMPA, Fla. — The Blue Jays kicked off spring training action with a win Sunday, edging the New York Yankees 6-4. Rowdy Tellez got Toronto off to an early lead with a two-run double in the first inning. Lefty Anthony Kay pitched two perfect innings for the Jays, striking out the Yankees' first six batters of the day. Toronto was up 5-0 heading into the bottom of the fourth when Andrew Velazquez got New York on the board, capitalizing on a fielding error by Jays second baseman Otto Lopez. Rob Brantly narrowed Toronto's lead in the fifth, blasting a two-run homer to centre field. Mike Tauchman followed suit with a single homer on a fly ball to centre field to make the score 5-4. Right-hander Jacob Waguespack gave up all three fifth-inning runs before he was replaced on the mound by Anthony Castro. Logan Warmoth sealed the Jays' victory with a homerun to right-centre field at the top of the sixth. T.J. Zeuch was credited with the Toronto win after allowing one run on two hits over two innings.
