Your Toronto Blue Jays news and notes for Sunday, April 16th, 2017, a day after the boys in blue ended their 7-game losing streak in dramatic fashion.

Shapiro Not Looking For Reinforcements Yet

Shi Davidi of Sportsnet spoke with Blue Jays General Manager Mark Shapiro prior to yesterday’s win. Shapiro reiterated that he was not seeking outside reinforcements in light of the Jays lackluster start to the season. Check out the full article HERE:

"“It’s not a time you get external help,” said Shapiro. “Less than 10 games in, this is not the time to start looking at external help. There may be a time and a place when you start to think about that, but you’re not going to replace five hitters.We need to remember why we believe in these guys, remember their track records, recognize that they are extremely competitive and that they are high-character guys. They care, they’re working hard and continue to believe that it will turn, as much as it doesn’t feel like that at any given moment, that’s the cruelty of baseball. It’s not a game for weak players or weak people. It tests your toughness all the time.”"
