TODD REDMOND RUMORS & GOSSIP
For Blue Jays rookie Todd Redmond, the stress of facing the New York Yankees for the first time was eased by an early outburst from his offense.
Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run home run, Redmond snapped a seven-start winless streak and Toronto beat the Yankees 7-2 on Wednesday night.

Although the Toronto Blue Jays have dropped way out of contention, Todd Redmond hopes to continue making the most of his opportunity in the club's rotation.
A matchup with the slumping Houston Astros might help his cause.
The right-hander will try to put together his third straight strong start Friday night when the Blue Jays open a three-game set at Minute Maid Park.
“We always give him (grief) because he’s got the invisi-ball,” said Kris Medlen, who played with Redmond in Gwinnett this year and Double-A Mississippi in 2008. “He always goes seven or eight innings, but he throws these belt-high to belly button-high 90 mph (fastballs). If I threw them they’d get crushed but it doesn’t. Some things you can’t explain.”
