Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Recap: Chase De Jong still winless


Brett Lawrie continues his rehab with a 1/4 game, Chase De Jong can’t get a break, top pitching prospects Sean Nolin and Daniel Norris turn in a pair of good performances, Kevin Pillar keeps on keeping on, and Sean Ochinko maybe rounding into form.

Buffalo Bisons (59-54)

It was a good day for forgotten prospect Sean Nolin. Nolin pitched five innings of one run ball. Steve Delabar pitched a perfect 8th…boy do we need him to right the ship. Kevin Pillar collected 2-hits and another stolen base……that is 8 in 8 games.
