  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Begins rehab assignment

    Cimber (shoulder) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Cimber didn't perform particularly well in his first rehab appearance, giving up a run on a pair of hits in his lone inning of work, but the Blue Jays will be happy to see him back on the mound after nearly a three-month absence due to a shoulder strain. The length of his absence likely means his rehab assignment won't be a short one.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Yet to resume throwing

    Cimber (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Placed on injured list

    The Blue Jays placed Cimber on the 15-day injured list Saturday with a right shoulder impingement.

    This will be Cimber's second stint on the injured list this season, as he previously spent nearly a month on the IL due to an upper-back strain. The 32-year-old righty holds a 7.40 ERA and 1.55 WHIP through 20.2 innings on the season -- heavily inflated by the nine runs he's allowed in 2.1 innings across his last three appearances. Bowden Francis was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Reinstated from IL

    Cimber (back) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Tuesday.

    A right rhomboid strain has held Cimber out since the end of April, but after throwing an extra bullpen session Monday, the 32-year-old righty will return to Toronto's bullpen. Cimber has allowed five earned runs through 10 innings this season, with three of them coming in his last two appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Scoreless outing in return

    Cimber gave up a hit and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning during Tuesday's rout of the Rays.

    It wouldn't have been possible to find a lower-leverage spot for Cimber in his return from the injured list -- the Jays were up 20-1 when he took the mound -- but the appearance was still a success as he tossed nine of 14 pitches for strikes, and the one hit he allowed came when Christian Bethancourt fought off a fastball above the strike zone and slapped it the other way for a single. Cimber looked good early in the season before being shut down due to back issues, and if he stays healthy the sidearming right-hander should be a key part of the middle-inning bridge to closer Jordan Romano.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Begins rehab assignment

    Cimber (back) began a rehab assignment with Low-A Dunedin on Thursday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Cimber walked one and struck out one in two-thirds of an inning. It's not clear how many rehab appearances he'll need before being activated, but it shouldn't be too many since he's missed less than three weeks of action.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Closing in on rehab assignment

    Cimber (back) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Resumes throwing

    Cimber (back) threw in the outfield before Friday's game against Seattle, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    This is the first time Cimber has thrown since landing on the injured list with an upper-back strain. There is still no official return date in place for the 32-year-old reliever, but Blue Jays manager John Schneider previously expressed optimism that Cimber wouldn't have an extended stay on the IL.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Shelved with upper-back strain

    The Blue Jays placed Cimber on the 15-day injured list Monday with a right rhomboid strain.

    Right-hander Nate Pearson was summoned from Triple-A Buffalo to replace Cimber on the 26-man active roster and in the Toronto bullpen. Cimber opened the season with four scoreless innings and scooped up a save across his first four appearances, but he's logged a 7.50 ERA and 1.67 WHIP over his subsequent seven relief outings. Blue Jays manager John Schneider said Monday that Cimber is expected to resume throwing later this week and could be in line for a "minimal stay" on the IL, per Mitch Bannon of SI.com.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Picks up rare save

    Cimber struck out one and did not allow a baserunner in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Thursday against the Royals.

    He took advantage of a rare save chance, as Jordan Romano was unavailable after pitching each of the last two days. Cimber had little trouble protecting a three-run lead, inducing two groundball outs before striking out MJ Melendez to end the game. Cimber has turned in four scoreless innings to begin the season, though he has walked two and also hit a batter.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Looks good Monday

    Cimber tossed a scoreless seventh inning in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers. He didn't walk or strike out a batter.

    The groundball specialist hasn't seen much game action this spring, working 3.1 innings over four appearances, but Cimber looked ready for Opening Day on Monday and needed only 10 pitches (eight strikes) to retire the side. After recording career highs with four saves, 10 wins and 20 holds in 2022, the 32-year-old right-hander will serve in a high-leverage role once again with Toronto, but his lack of strikeouts limits his fantasy ceiling in some formats.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Settles with Toronto

    Cimber signed a one-year, $3.15 million contract with Toronto on Friday to avoid arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    In his first full season with the Blue Jays, Cimber put up a 2.80 ERA and 1.12 WHIP through 70.2 innings out of the bullpen, earning 20 holds and four saves in the process. His impressive stats were more than enough to warrant a healthy raise for the 32-year-old righty, who will most likely serve as a setup man in 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Records 10th win

    Cimber (10-5) earned the win in Wednesday's 3-2 extra-inning victory over the Red Sox. He allowed one hit in a scoreless inning without recording a strikeout.

    Cimber had little trouble in the ninth inning, retiring the Red Sox on just eight pitches to send the game to extras. The Blue Jays would end up winning after George Springer hit a double to score Jackie Bradley in the 10th. Amazingly, the reliever now has 10 wins on the season to go along with four saves and 13 holds.

  • Blue Jays' Adam Cimber: Picks up fourth save

    Cimber earned the save in Thursday's 4-1 win over Tampa Bay, striking out one in a perfect ninth inning.

    Cimber had no trouble with the middle of the Rays' lineup and needed just 10 pitches to close out the game. It was his fourth save of the season and first since May 17. After a rough patch in the middle of June, the righty has allowed just one baserunner in his last 3.2 innings. Jordan Romano had pitched on consecutive days and will continue to serve as Toronto's closer, but Cimber should still receive the occasional save chance.
