Kyle Drabek optioned to Triple-A


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) The Blue Jays optioned pitcher Kyle Drabek to Triple-A Buffalo Sunday.

Kyle Drabek gets the call Saturday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Kyle Drabek was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo Saturday, to provide a fresh arm in the bullpen.

Drabel has yet to pitch in the majors this season, and the former top prospect has just a 4.00 ERA in 96 2/3 innings for Buffalo. 


Two Toronto farmhands hurl duds Friday night


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) Two former Blue Jays starters for whom the organization still holds out hope struggled mightily in a Friday doubleheader sweep at the hands of Gwinnett.

Ricky Romero issued an absurd nine walks in 2 2/3 innings in the opener. He is 0-2 this season with 31 hits and 32 walks in 29 2/3 innings and a 6.07 ERA.

Kyle Drabek fared no better in the nightcap. He allowed eight runs in five innings to lower his record to 3-3 and raise his ERA to 4.87. Drabek has surrendered 53 hits in just 40 2/3 inning this year.


Blue Jays option three players Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2014) The Blue Jays have optioned three players to the minors Sunday, according to MLB.com.

Sean Nolin, Kyle Drabek and Chad Jenkins will be sent down. All three players saw limited time in the majors last year, and could be in line for more work depending on how well the Blue Jays' rotation performs. 


Blue Jays pitchers get work in before game called due to rain


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/26/2014) The Blue Jays/Phillies spring opener was stopped after 6 1/2 innings Wednesday because of rain. However, it was still plenty of time for three pitchers who hope to be in the Blue Jays' rotation to make their first spring training appearances.

J.A. Happ, who should be in the rotation come opening day, struggled in his spring debut. He was taggged for two runs on four hits and one walk in one inning of work. However, Happ did record three strikeouts.

Happ was replaced in the second inning by Todd Redmond, who is competing for the final spot in the team's rotation. Redmond (1-0) actually earned the win thanks to two scoreless innings in a 4-3 victory for Toronto. He didn't allow a hit or walk, while striking out one.

Kyle Drabek, who is also competing for the final spot in the rotation, replaced Redmond. He recorded a hold, as he allowed one run on one hit and three walks in 1 2/3 innings. Drabek recorded one strikeout.


Jays GM: We were never close to signing free agent starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) The offseason clock ticked by while many waited in anticipation for the Blue Jays to sign a free agent pitcher. It hasn't happened - and general manager Alex Anthopoulos indicated Thursday that it won't. His words seem to preclude any possibility of the Jays signing Ervin Santana .

Anthopoloulos told the National Post that his team never came close to landing one. He added that the Jays nearly made a trade or two, but couldn't finalize those deals. 

Toronto is lacking depth in the starting rotation. Perennial disappointment J.A. Happ is currently listed as the fourth starter with Kyle Drabek, who is coming off Tommy John surgery, right behind him. They appear to be safe if they perform well in spring training.


Kyle Drabek turns heads with bullpen session


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Kyle Drabek appeared to be pain-free Monday in his first bullpen session, which caught the eye of the Blue Jays coaching staff, MLB.com reports.

"He was one guy that stood out for me today," Blue Jays pitching coach Pete Walker said. "His delivery looked sound, I love where his hands are right now. He located the ball down in the zone, his changeup was outstanding. He looks very confident and poised. Really repeated his delivery well. If he's a guy that's going to pound the strike zone, he's definitely in the mix. There's no question that's a Major League-calibre arm."

Drabek appears to be fully healthy after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2012 and making just three appearances late last season. He'll be competing for a spot in the rotation this spring with, among others, Drew Hutchison, who also underwent Tommy John surgery in 2012 and threw his first bullpen session Monday.


Kyle Drabek leaves after taking liner off ankle


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2013) Blue Jays pitcher Kyle Drabek took a liner off his ankle in the bottom of the sixth inning and had to be removed from Wednesday's appearance at Baltimore. Nate McLouth hit a line drive off his right ankle.

Drabek retired one batter on his outing and was pitching his first inning for the Jays. He gave up a hit and walked a batter before leaving. Drabek is day to day with a bone bruise on his right ankle and X-rays came back negative. That said, he may not make another appearance for Toronto this season. He has a 7.71 ERA.


Blue Jays recall Ricky Romero, among others


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2013) The Toronto Blue Jays recalled four pitchers and a catcher on Monday night following a game in Arizona, the National Post reports.

The Blue Jays recalled starting pitcher Ricky Romero and Tommy John patients Kyle Drabek and Luis Perez. The team also sent for Triple-A Buffalo's Jeremy Jeffress and catcher Mike Nickeas.

Romero, who couldn't make the Blue Jays out of spring training, was called up for two starts in May and gave up six runs over 4 1/3 innings. The former ace struggled at Triple-A as well, going 5-8 with a 5.78 ERA.

Drabek went 1-4 with a 3.14 ERA over three different minor league levels this season while recovering from Tommy John. He had 35 strikeouts over 43 innings.

Kyle Drabek, Drew Hutchison candidates to start for Toronto


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2013) Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Wednesday starting pitchers Kyle Drabek and Drew Hutchison are candidates to make a start in the absence of Josh Johnson (forearm) next time through the rotation. Both players are working their way back from Tommy John surgery.

Drabek is 0-2 with a 2.83 ERA and .176 opponents' batting average in 10 outings (eight starts) between Class A and Double-A.

Hutchison is 0-2 with a 4.95 ERA and .200 opponents' batting average through six outings (five starts) between Class A, Double-A and Triple-A.


Kyle Drabek could return in September


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2013) Blue Jays starter Kyle Drabek could return in September, general manager Alex Anthopolous told SportsNet on Sunday. Drabek has a 2.55 ERA with 23 strikeouts in 24 2/3 rehab innings as he works back from Tommy John surgery.


Kyle Drabek slowly increasing workload


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

It was Drabek's first game action since June 13, 2012. He's recovering from Tommy John surgery and could join the Blue Jays' rotation in the second half.

Drabek to throw off mound


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2013) MLB.com reports Blue Jays starting pitcher Kyle Drabek, who has been placed on the 60-day DL while he recovers from Tommy John surgery, is slated to start throwing off a mound this week. "We've got him and [Drew] Hutchinson down [in Dunedin] doing their rehab. Everything's moving right along, but it's going to be a while," manager John Gibbons said. "He's not going to be ready until the middle or the end of the summer." The Blue Jays aren't rushing back Drabek, who has had Tommy John surgery twice in his career. "When you come off that type of surgery, you want to make sure you get at least a year in," Gibbons said. "He's a good ways off, but he's doing really well right now."

Drabek back on road to recovery


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2013) Blue Jays starting pitcher Kyle Drabek has been in this predicament before: sidelined and facing an extended rehab process following Tommy John surgery. But he has not become despondent following the second reconstructive elbow surgery of his career, especially with fellow pitcher Drew Hutchison joining him in the recovery. "So far, so good," Drabek told the Toronto Sun on Saturday. "There have been no setbacks and my arm feels good. It makes such a difference to have company going through this process. I think it is helping both of us get through the rehab, just having the other guy around to bounce things off of."
