Blue Jays backing off Cecil as closer, going to committee approach


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons made the announcement Tuesday he was removing Brett Cecil from the role as full-time closer and going to a committee approach. Gibbons said Cecil is getting backed off as closer to "get him right."

"He's just not sharp right now," Gibbons said.

Gibbons added Steve Delabar would be used as the closer Tuesday against the Rays, but also said Roberto Osuna will be in the mix for saves moving forward. Osuna was unavailable Tuesday after recording a two-inning save Monday.

Gibbons spoke favorable of Osuna on Tuesday, adding he has the stuff, makeup and toughness to close games. However, he added Osuna might be needed before the ninth inning, which is why he is not being named the new closer.

Scout: Blue Jays making a mistake leaving Steve Delabar in minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) One scout believes the Blue Jays are making a mistake leaving reliever Steve Delabar in the minors, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

While rookie relievers Miguel Castro and Roberto Osuna are impressive, using a lot of young pitchers is "playing with fire," the scout added.

Delabar was optioned to the minors after posting a 3.86 ERA, one save, nine strikeouts and one walk in seven innings this spring.


Jays option Delabar, increase chances of Osuna, Castro making 'pen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) The Blue Jays announced Tuesday they optioned reliever Steve Delabar to minor-league camp. Delabar -- who had a 3.86 ERA, one save, nine strikeouts and one walk in seven spring innings -- said he was shocked by the move, per the National Post.

"They told me that some other guys have stepped up. I’m assuming it’s some of the younger guys," he said.

Manager John Gibbons didn't hold back in his assessment of Delabar's spring performance.

"I’m glad he’s pissed off," Gibbons said. "He should be pissed off. Why wouldn’t he be? We’re all pissed off. We wanted him on the team.

"We need a multiple-inning guy. He’s basically right now a one-inning pitcher. That’s what it came down to."

Delabar's demotion could pave the way for Roberto Osuna and Miguel Castro to make the Opening Day roster. Both players have been impressive in camp. Castro has tossed nine scoreless innings, while striking out eight and not issuing a walk. Osuna also hasn't allowed a run in 9 2/3 innings, while striking out eight and walking two.


Blue Jays' Steve Delabar embracing competition in camp


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Blue Jays pitcher Steve Delabar is embracing the competition for a roster spot, according to MLB.com.

"If I was locked in as the go-to guy in the 'pen or if I'm the last guy in camp, I'm here to compete," Delabar said. "I always say I'm going to put more pressure on myself than any staff member here, because we all want to be perfect every time out."

Delbar was a sure thing to make the 25-man roster last season, but had some issues in 2014. He's now in a competition to earn one of the team's open spots in the pen. 

Delabar explained that the goal for him succeeding was making sure he kept his fastball down. "If the ball gets up, it doesn't matter how fast it is, it's going to get hit," Delabar said. "Fastball down, fastball location, coming later into games you're going to have to spot up a little better. That just comes with a little more reps and work, and then we'll get to that point."

Delabar posted a 4.91 ERA over 25 1/3 innings last season. 


Blue Jays' Steve Delabar hoping for bounce back season


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Blue Jays reliever Steve Delabar is hoping for a bounce back season, according to the National Post

Delabar had a bit of a rough season in 2014. After making the All-Star team in 2013, Delabar posted a 4.91 ERA over 25 2/3 innings, and was sent to the minors in June. Delabar did not return when the club expanded rosters in September. 

Knee issues were the reason for Delabar's struggles. He initially jammed his left knee, and then wound up hyperextending his right knee. The issues, while "manageable," forced Delabar to alter his delivery. The club thought Delabar should rest at the end of the sesaon, which led to the decision not to call him up.

That decision motivated Delabar to work harder during the offseason. "As soon as I got back, I was itching to get going and get things right," he said. "I feel good about where I am right now." 

Delabar will come into camp fighting to earn a spot on the team's 25-man roster.

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
