Toronto Blue Jays

On Wednesday night, ahead of Toronto taking on the Boston Red Sox, Vlaimel Guerrero — son of Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. — was tasked with tossing the ceremonial first pitch to her dad to open up the game's festivities. Decked out in a custom Jays City Connect jersey as well as a team t-shirt, the younger Guerrero took just a few steps off the mound before delivering the pitch to her father.

Don't look now, but the Boston Red Sox are making quite the push for the playoffs. While the NBA champion Boston Celtics demanded the attention in Boston sports fans over the last two months, Alex Cora's club has been playing some excellent baseball over the last several weeks. If the Red Sox can keep it up, they'll be worth keeping eyeballs on this summer as long as they continue to make a push for October baseball. Boston finished off a three-game sweep of the Blue Jays in Toronto on Wednesday night with a 7-3 victory, sparked by some big swings and more stolen bases.

Jarren Duran and Enmanuel Valdez hit solo home runs, Brayan Bello pitched six innings to snap a three-start winless streak, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays 7-3 on Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep. Duran, who had two hits and two RBIs, extended his hitting streak to 10 games. Valdez scored all three times he reached base as the Red Sox matched a season best by winning their fifth straight and eighth in their last 10. The Red Sox, who earned their fourth sweep, have won three straight series.

Turner was flying high in April, hitting .300 with an .864 on-base plus slugging mark for the month, but got shot down in May to the tune of 8-for-72 with only two extra-base hits. The jury is out as to whether he's back on top in June, but he certainly has looked a lot more like what the Jays were expecting, hitting .318 with an .878 OPS for the month after going 2-for-4 in Wednesday night's 7-3 loss to the Boston Red Sox at the Rogers Centre. As a result, Turner found himself batting second as the Jays failed to stave off a sweep at the hands of the Red Sox. “I think you're seeing (Turner look) more like himself,” manager John Schneider said prior to the game.

Reliever Chris Martin pitched a scoreless ninth inning to finish off the 7-3 victory. In the process of pitching that scoreless ninth, Martin made one of the more unusual defensive plays you'll ever see. Toronto's Vladimir Guerrero Jr. came up with one out and a runner on first. As Martin backed up to field the chopper, he lost his footing on the pitcher's mound and tripped backward.

Daniel Vogelbach is now, officially, no longer a member of the Toronto Blue Jays. As flagged by MLB Trade Rumours, the Blue Jays have released Vogelbach after designating him for assignment last week. The news was confirmed on his transactions log. Presumably, none of the other 29 MLB teams were interested in claiming him on waivers, effectively making Vogelbach a free agent.

Joey Votto is getting one step closer to finally suiting up for the Toronto Blue Jays. On Wednesday, the Dunedin Blue Jays announced that he would be joining their roster for Wednesday's game, an early 11 am ET start time. A Toronto native, Votto's signing this offseason was highly anticipated, though he has yet to play much this year. Votto was with the Cincinnati Reds from 2007 to 2023 before signing with his hometown Toronto club this past offseason.

The Toronto Blue Jays could unveil slugging prospect Orelvis Martinez on Wednesday night when they try to salvage the finale of their three-game series with the visiting Boston Red Sox. The 22-year-old infielder, who has belted 16 home runs this season at Triple-A Buffalo, was promoted Tuesday after shortstop Bo Bichette (right calf strain) was put on the injured list. Martinez did not play Tuesday in the Blue Jays' 4-3 loss to the Red Sox, who have won the opening two games of the series and four straight overall. "If he's not in the starting lineup, having his bat on the bench is beneficial," Blue Jays manager John Schneider said.
