Only One Start

Daniel Hudson, Ryan Tepera, Buddy Boshers, David Phelps, Neil Ramirez, and Ryan Feierabend were all used in the starting role as well for the Toronto Blue Jays last season, with most of these players being used as an opener and only going 1-2 innings. Feierabrand was the only pitcher out of this group to go more than one inning, considering he has been used as both a starter and a reliever in his career. Both Hudson and Phelps would be traded at the 2019 trade deadline, with Hudson winning a World Series with the Washington Nationals.

Hudson became a free agent at the end of the 2019 campaign and would eventually re-sign with the Washington Nationals on a two year, $11 million dollar deal. David Phelps was also a free agent after finishing the season with the Chicago Cubs, and he will be spending the 2020 campaign with the Milwaukee Brewers.

Ryan Tepera was DFA’d by the Blue Jays after the 2019 season and signed a contract with the Chicago Cubs for the 2020 campaign.

Ramirez would be DFA’d by the Blue Jays before the 2019 season ended and he elected free agency. He signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Angels and was invited to spring training.

Boshers was outrighted to the Buffalo Bisons roster at the end of the 2019 season and elected free agency, where he currently still stands. Feierabend elected free agency at the end of the 2019 season and is currently still a free agent.
