The past two years fighting to get back to the big leagues, Julio Teheran said, have been “tough.” He was rightly proud of his effort against the Giants, two hours or so after signing a contract with the Brewers. pic.twitter.com/okPdYsn50O

The Blue Jays held a players-only meeting after their 6-3 loss to the Rays yesterday. Manager John Schneider had the same plan, but the players beat him to it, he said during a postgame interview. When asked, Matt Chapman said “We’re all grown men here. It’s up to us. We’re the ones on the field. Our coaches can’t hold our hands. We have to go out there and find ways to win games.”
