Toronto Blue Jays: The 2019 Roster – Where are they now?
Former Relievers Continued
Not to be confused with the San Diego Padre, Javy Guerra only pitched in 11 games for the Blue Jays, throwing to a 3.86 ERA during that time. He would be designated for assignment in mid-May and would be picked up by the Washington Nationals, riding the bus between AAA and the MLB for the rest of the season.
For 2020, Guerra resigned with the Nationals on a minor league contract. In 14 games this year, the Texas native has accumulated a 4.02 ERA with 13 strikeouts, seven walks, and a 1.660 WHIP. He is currently on the 10-day injured list with a hamstring injury.
Acquired in a trade from the Pittsburgh Pirates, Nick Kingham pitched in 11 games for the Blue Jays. He would throw to a 3.00 ERA with 14 strikeouts and eight walks before being DFA’d multiple times and eventually outright released in late August.
In the off-season, Kingham signed with SK Wayerns in the Korean Baseball Organization. He would struggle while playing across the Pacific Ocean, throwing to a 6.75 ERA and a 1.88 WHIP in just two games. Kingham’s time in South Korea would be short-lived as he was released on July 3 and is currently a free agent.
The 10 games or less crew
In ten games with the Blue Jays, Stewart would be picked up by the Chicago Cubs affiliate Iowa Cubs when he was sent back to AAA from the active roster. He was invited to spring training the next season in Chicago but was released on May 28. He is currently a free agent.
A veteran pickup by the Blue Jays last season, Godley elected free agency at the end of the 2019 season. He would sign a minor league contract with the Detroit Tigers this past off-season, but would be released during Summer Camp and ended up signing another minor league contract with the Boston Red Sox, where he would pitch in eight games and earned an 8.16 ERA. He is currently on the 60-day injured list.
Ramirez would pitch to a 5.40 ERA and a 1.680 WHIP in six games with the Blue Jays. He would become a free agent at the end of the 2019 season and went on to sign a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Angels. He was released by the Angels on September 1 and has not appeared in an MLB game this season.
The man with the last name as complicated as mine, Ryan Feierabend pitched in two games for the Blue Jays last season, earning an 11.12 ERA with four strikeouts and two home runs. He would elect free agency at the end of 2019 and is now playing in the Chinese Professional Baseball League with the Uni-President 7-Eleven Lions. With the Lions, Feierabend pitched to a 4.74 ERA with 55 strikeouts, starting in 10 of the 11 games he has pitched in. He would part ways from the team in late June citing the COVID-19 pandemic and is now back in the United States.
Zac Rosscup bounced around last season, playing for three different teams across the league. He would only play in the two games for the Blue Jays before being DFA’d. He is currently a member of the Colorado Rockies and has not pitched in an MLB game this season.
Another pitcher who played for multiple teams last year, Jimmy Cordero pitched 1.1 innings for the Blue Jays, giving up one home run with no strikeouts or walks. He is currently a member of the Chicago White Sox and was recently suspended three games for throwing at Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras.
