Thomas Hatch

Hatch showed promise at times during his four years on the Blue Jays, but he was unable to lock down a consistent role in the big leagues. His Blue Jays career ended with 27 appearances and a 5.40 ERA/5.14 FIP. Last season, he had six outings with Toronto before being claimed off of waivers by the Pirates in August.

Now 29-years of age, Hatch is playing in Japan with the Hiroshima Toyo Carp. He's made five appearances so far, posting a 2.78 ERA across 22.2 inning swith 15 strikeouts and five walks.

Tyler Heineman

Heineman did a solid job as the Blue Jays' third-string catcher, filling in admirably whenever one of Alejandro Kirk or Danny Jansen went on the injured list. None of his stats are going to bounce off the page, but he hit .276 with an .812 OPS through 19 games last season.

Heineman was claimed off of waivers by the Mets in December and later traded to the Red Sox for cash considerations. He is currently a member of the Triple-A Worcester Red Sox, where he's hitting .250 with a pair of runs driven in through his first eight games of the season.

Jordan Hicks

Another deadline acquisition coming over from the Cardinals, Hicks did an excellent job out of the Blue Jays' bullpen post-trade. He made 25 appearances and had a 2.63 ERA along with four saves.

Over the offseason, the Giants signed Hicks as a starting pitcher and the experiment could not possibly be going better for the club. He's made four starts this year and leads the major leagues with a 1.57 ERA across 23 innings of work.
