Toronto Blue Jays news and notes for Sunday, July 22nd, 2018 include tidbits on Marcus Stroman, Rowdy Tellez, and Troy Tulowitzki.

Stroman Does His Talking On The Field

Marcus Stroman took to the bump a week removed from a verbal spat with a Toronto reporter that was blown out of proportion. Stroman let his play do the talking on this day limiting the lowly Orioles to one earned run while fanning seven over and registering the victory.

Since returning from the disabled list Stroman sports a 3.03 earned run average including three quality starts and an impressive 1.18 WHIP.

Tellez Bringing The Boom

Rowdy Tellez is attempting to reassert himself as a legitimate major league prospect after another disappointing start to the campaign. Tellez has smacked four homers in his last five games with the Bisons including two last night in a losing effort.

The first baseman is now batting .253/.330/.424 with 10 homers in 76 games with the herd this season.

Tulo Shelved For Nearly A Year

More from Toronto Blue Jays News

Troy Tulowitzki has not appeared in a major league game since July 28th, 2017 as his one-year DL anniversary looms. Tulo is currently participating in full baseball activities but there is no confirmed timetable when the veteran shortstop will begin a rehab assignment.

The 33-year old is earning $20 million this season to sit on the sidelines.

Happ On The Bump Yet Again

J.A. Happ will toe the rubber today versus the Orioles in what could be his last start in a Blue Jays uniform. Happ has not been effective his last three starts so hopefully, the southpaw can find a way to right the ship versus the last place Baltimore contingent.

The Yankees, Mariners and most recently Phillies have all been rumoured to have interest in the hurler.

Osuna Yet To Surrender A Run In Rehab Games

Roberto Osuna has yet to surrender a run in three rehab appearances (2 with Dunedin and 1 with Bluefield). The closer has struck out two batters in his three innings of work as Osuna attempts to get into game shape before his suspension comes to an end.
