  • Liam Hendriks has somehow become a dominant weapon out of the Toronto bullpen.  A bit of a journeyman before joining the Jays, and a fringe reliever on last year’s team, Hendriks has become one of Gibby’s go-to guys and he hasn’t disappointed.  His increased fastball velocity and movement has had AL batters confused, and with the new additions to the pen, it’s quickly turned from a weakness to a strength.

    The tall Aussie was the forgotten man in the bullpen, with those “in the know” wondering why Gibby has forgotten about the fire throwing righty.  And he was definitely shifted down the reliver totum pole with the deadline additions of LaTroy Hawkins, Mark Lowe and the return of fireballer Aaron Sanchez.  But the depth of the bullpen is due in large contribution to Liam, and the combination of a depe bullpen and an ace-lead starting rotation has this team winning at a record pace.
