TORONTO -- When Seattle's Eugenio Suárez came back down to earth after snagging Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s line drive, all the Blue Jays slugger could do was shrug. Arms stretched out to ask, "Really?"

TORONTO -- Following a series of software updates and bug fixes, Yusei Kikuchi 2.0 officially launched on Monday in Toronto. This wasn’t a quick fix. For much of April, Kikuchi looked like a pitcher trying to find himself. Making adjustments on the fly against big league hitters is next to

NEW YORK -- When Vladimir Guerrero Jr. snapped his bat over his left knee following a fifth-inning strikeout on Wednesday in the Bronx, it looked like he could have snapped the entire tree. A week’s worth of frustration splintered out of that lumber. With the 5-3 loss, the Blue Jays
