Redmond was designated for assignment on Thursday.

The Blue Jays wanted to clear a spot on the 40-man roster, and Redmond has been brutal out of the bullpen so far, giving up eight earned runs in 4.1 innings. He should clear waivers and end up in Triple-A.

Redmond has pitched well in the spring thus far, surrendering one earned run and four hits across five innings.

With Aaron Sanchez likely pressed into duty as a starter thanks to the injury to Marcus Stroman, Redmond's role in the bullpen becomes more important. Last season he pitched 75 innings across 42 appearances, carrying an ERA of 3.24 with a WHIP of 1.33 to go along with 60 strikeouts. While Redmond isn't going to blow anyone away with his power, but is also fairly consistent. He cut the number of home runs he allowed drastically from 13 in 2013 to just five in 2014. If he can keep that number down while coming close to a strikeout per inning, he could be a nice option in deeper leagues to boost your innings total out of the bullpen.

Redmond gave up two runs on three hits while covering two innings out of the bullpen in Tuesday's loss to the Brewers.

Redmond has been a steadying presence in the Toronto bullpen for much of the season, but he's hit a rough patch recently. He's now given up seven runs over his last 2.2 innings.

Todd Redmond picked up a three-inning save in a 12-2 game against the Royals on Saturday.

Redmond allowed one run in the three innings, but it was unearned. He's primarily been a mopup man this year after doing a nice job as a starter last season, and he won't be a candidate for fantasy value unless he sneaks back into the rotation at some point.

Todd Redmond allowed four runs -- three earned -- in six innings and struck out eight Saturday in the Blue Jays' 9-4 win over the Tigers.

Assuming there are no setbacks in the final week, it looks like Drew Huchinson, Brandon Morrow and J.A. Happ will round out Toronto's rotation, leaving Redmond as a middle-relief possibility. The Jays are crowded there, with Redmond, Esmil Rogers and Jeremy Jeffress all out of options. One could be traded to ease the logjam. Rogers seems the most likely to go in that scenario.

Todd Redmond yielded two runs in five innings Sunday as the Blue Jays edged the Orioles 4-3 in 10 innings.

Redmond struck out four in his best outing so far this spring. He's probably fallen out of the rotation picture with Drew Hutchinson looking like a lock and J.A. Happ still favored for the other opening. However, he remains a candidate for middle relief, and if he pitches well there, he'll get another look as a starter later on.

Todd Redmond gave up three runs and two homers in his two innings of work Sunday against the Yankees.

Eduardo Nunez and Carlos Beltran hit back-to-back homers off him in the third. Redmond was a pleasant surprise for the Blue Jays last year, amassing a 4.32 ERA and a 76/23 K/BB ratio in 77 innings over his 14 starts and three relief appearances. However, he still appears to be something of a long shot to open this year back in the rotation. That he is prone to the homer hurts his candidacy, but last year's strikeout rate was pretty promising.

Todd Redmond yielded two runs over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's 3-2 extra innings win over the Orioles.

Redmond was fortunate to only give up the two runs. He allowed a pair of solo homers, but that's all he was charged with despite giving up eight hits and walking a pair. Redmond has been better than expected during his time in the Blue Jays' rotation this season, posting a 3.80 ERA while striking out 71 over 68 2/3 frames. He's in line to start the regular season finale on Sunday against the Rays.

Todd Redmond pitched seven innings of one-run ball and struck out seven in a win over the Yankees on Thursday.

It's not all that shocking that Redmond is having some modest success in the majors, but that he's managed 73 strikeouts in 70 2/3 innings while facing an AL East schedule qualifies as a big surprise. It also provides some hope that he can help the Blue Jays next year. The home run ball is always going to be an issue, though. He gave up his 11th tonight, a solo shot to Curtis Granderson in the sixth.

Todd Redmond yielded one run over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Friday.

He deserved better. Redmond was excellent, allowing just three hits and no walks while striking out seven. He was pulled in the seventh inning with a 3-0 lead, but the Orioles quickly tied things up against Dustin McGowan and Sergio Santos. Redmond will hope for better luck next week when he faces the Yankees.
