Blue Jays give B.J. Ryan unconditional release

Baseball, MLB, Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays have given their troubled former closer B.J. Ryan an unconditional release.

Ryan, 33, has appeared in 25 games this season and has posted a 1-1 record with two saves and a brutal ERA of 6.53. The 6-foot-5 left hander was on the disabled list this season from April 23 to May 15 with a left trapezius tightness. He never regained his velocity or control when he returned.


The Jays have also activated their new closer, Scott Downs, from the 15-day disabled list. Down was placed on the DL on June 18 with a left great toe sprain.

In 26 games this season the left-hander is 1-0 with eight saves and a 1.98 ERA.

Those expensive LTC that JP Dummy has given out have seriously blown up.
