TORONTO - Kevin Pillar was in centerfield for a fourth-straight game on Saturday, maximizing an opportunity at consistent playing time by swinging a better bat, hustling on the base paths and playing all out defence. Pillars doing his best to refute the old saying that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. "Thats what any young player wants, just a little consistent playing time to make the adjustments, to show you belong at this level, show you can play," said Pillar. "I come to the yard ready to play everyday whether Im in the lineup or not. I cant remember the last time I played centrefield four days in a row but Im pretty happy about it and hoping we can start winning some games." Pillar entered Saturdays action 4-for-12 in three games since his recall from Triple-A Buffalo. On Wednesday night he turned a single through the left side into a double, hustling from the moment he left the batters box. On Friday, Pillar made a head-long, diving catch of a Brian McCann shallow flyball to end the fourth inning. Hes making what already was an interesting situation even more complicated. Colby Rasmus did serve as the designated hitter on Friday but otherwise has been relegated to the bench over the four-game stretch. The Blue Jays said Rasmus had a stomach virus in the middle of the week. Obviously, hed recovered by the time the Yankees arrived in town. Anthony Gose is expected to be recalled when rosters expand on September 1. That leaves five legitimate outfielders (Jose Bautista, Melky Cabrera, Rasmus, Pillar, Gose) vying for playing time at three spots. Bautista isnt going anywhere. Cabrera isnt going anywhere. So, barring the unforeseen and the odd day off for either Bautista or Cabrera, it appears to be three guys competing for playing time in centrefield. "Kevs playing good right now," said manager John Gibbons. "Ride him while hes hot, anyway. Hes swinging the bat and playing some good defence." The club has been waiting for Rasmus to get on one of his patented hot streaks, something which hasnt happened for a protracted period of time this season. About to experience his first kick at the free agency can, Rasmus could help himself (monetarily) and the Blue Jays (contributing to wins) by going on a September tear. The ballclub, however, must be realistic about its postseason chances (slim) and in looking to the future, may use September to determine whether Gose and Pillar could form a platoon in 2015. "I dont know what well do when all those guys get here, you know," said Gibbons. BUEHRLES INNINGS With five scheduled starts remaining, Mark Buehrle needs to pitch 33 innings to get to 200 for the season. Its a number particularly important to the 35-year-old, whos won at least 10 games for a 14th consecutive season and is looking to extend his run of throwing 200-plus innings to a 14th-straight year. "Yeah, it means a lot," said Buehrle. "I mean its the goal I set every year. Obviously its going to come to an end sometime, whether its the result of a bad year or retirement. Its one of those things I still, in my mind, want to get to and if I dont, like I said its got to come to an end sometime but Ill get home in the offseason and itll be disappointing if I dont get there." Manager John Gibbons is eager to help Buehrle achieve the mark. With off-days factored in, Buehrles last scheduled start is to be the Thursday, September 25 series finale with the Mariners. "Its important for us, too," said Gibbons. "Wed love to see him get that." Gibbons wont rule out throwing Buehrle in relief on the final day of the season, against Baltimore, if hes a couple of innings away from getting to 200. NEW LOOK LINEUP Its just one move but it had ramifications for six players. Manager John Gibbons, desperately looking for an offensive spark, moved Munenori Kawasaki into the two-hole usually occupied by Melky Cabrera. That pushed each of Melky Cabrera (third), Jose Bautista, Adam Lind, Edwin Encarnacion and Dioner Navarro down a spot. "(Kawasaki) usually gives you a good, tough, battling at-bat," said Gibbons. "He really works the pitchers well. It just kind of lengthens the lineup a little bit. Try something different." ENCARNACION STRUGGLING Edwin Encarnacion entered Saturdays action struggling since his return from a six-week absence with strained right quadriceps. In 12 games, Encarnacion had pieced together a .152/.235/.283 slash line with one home run and seven hits (three doubles). The Blue Jays were hoping getting Encarnacion and Adam Lind (fractured right foot) back in the lineup would be the cure to what ailed them. During a 7-17 August, that hasnt been the case. "Its a timing thing," said manager John Gibbons. "I thought when he first came back he was on a lot of pitches, just fouling them off. This time, hes still a little bit out of whack. We need him to be good, lets face it. He needs to just get his at-bats and hopefully he catches fire because when he does hes awful dangerous." Robin Ventura Jersey . Billy Hamilton finished off Cincinnatis biggest comeback of the season for a doubleheader sweep. Nellie Fox Jersey . -- C.J. Cron hit an RBI single on the first pitch he saw in the major leagues, doubled his second time up and hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth inning to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 5-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night. http://www.authenticbaseshopwhitesox.com/. Tensions rose in the first period when Penguins defenceman Brooks Orpik hit Bruins forward Loui Eriksson with what appeared to be a clean hit. Adam LaRoche Jersey . No such luck. Wiggins owned the end of Parkers impressive homecoming. The Kansas star scored 16 of his 22 points in the second half, outplaying Parker down the stretch and helping the fifth-ranked Jayhawks knock off No. Bobby Jenks Jersey . -- Arizona coach Sean Miller rose from his seat every time Roberto Nelson touched the ball and yelled "Shooter!" He could have been talking about his own team, too.WINNIPEG -- Youre in the pool, start swimming -- thats pretty much how receiver Aaron Kelly describes his introduction last season to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. At the time, the team itself wasnt treading water too well. After Kelly was signed near the end of August he managed to finish 2013 with 22 catches and a respectable 321 yards by the end of the season, while the Bombers finished in the league cellar at 3-15. He finished fifth on the team receiving list. The lean six-foot-five import is now entering his fourth season in the CFL and has a combined 20 starts with the Bombers and Hamilton Tiger-Cats, where he spent his first two seasons. Kelly joined a team last year that had just sacked its president, general manager and offensive co-ordinator. They also were still in the process of burning through four quarterbacks, hoping to find one who could find a way out of their slump. "When you need timing and stuff like that you want to get familiar with a quarterback and when it changes up it makes it difficult," says the soft-spoken Georgia native. This year, Kelly says hes benefiting from a chance to attend training camp, learn the offence from the ground up and become familiar with the teams quarterbacks, before he has to play a regular-season game. "I think it will give me the ability to be a little more comfortable," he said. "You come in the middle of the season and youre just kind of thrown in there, and you know just like thrown in a pool and just trying to survive . . . "Getting in from the start you get all the details and all the coaching." Kelly has had a goood camp so far as the first pre-season game approaches Monday, when the Toronto Argonauts visit.dddddddddddd Its about the only game confirmed this year as the league and players association remain embroiled in a contract dispute. Starting quarterback Drew Willy and Max Hall, who was the most consistent quarterback at the end of last season for the Bombers, both like the way Kelly has been hauling in passes at camp "Weve had some good connections already in the past few days. Hes done a good job on the seam routes and corners," said Willy, who likes Kellys size. "His catch radius is very big and hes done a great job for us and were looking forward to him helping us." Hall has also had a pretty good camp himself and likes what Kelly delivers. "Aaron Kelly is a good football player," says Hall, the only quarterback the Bombers decided to keep from 2013. "Hes just easy to throw the ball to. But, for being such a big guy, hes got a nice stride, hes quick on his feet. And what I really like about him, he knows how to separate man coverage. And so, as a quarterback, hes a guy you can go to, a guy you can trust." There are four quarterbacks in camp right now for the Bombers, five if you count a guest slot for the University of Manitoba Bisons. Getting to work with that many is another bonus to attending camp, says Kelly, should something happen during the season that would force a change. "In camp you get a chance to work with everyone and get your timing down with everyone, so when you get into the game, youll be ready to work with whoever."
