TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays have been playing several of their September call-ups while the Cleveland Indians try to close in on their inevitable clinching of a division title in the American League Central.The teams have split the first two games of a four-game series at the Rogers Centre after the Blue Jays won in 11 innings Friday night on the second walk-off home run of Kevin Pillar’s career.The Blue Jays (64-77) will continue to run out players recently called up from the minors when right-hander Sean Reid-Foley (1-2 Bryan Holaday Jersey , 5.51 ERA) makes his fourth career major-league start on Saturday.Article continues below ...The Indians (80-61) will start right-hander Adam Plutko (4-5, 5.04), who will be making his 14th appearance (11th start) of the season Saturday.In Plutko’s Monday start against the Kansas City Royals, he took the loss after allowing four runs and seven hits in six innings despite a career-best eight strikeouts.The 26-year-old will be making his second career start against Toronto. He made his first career major-league start on May 3 against the Blue Jays in the second game of a doubleheader. He allowed six hits and three runs while striking out six in 7 1/3 innings for his first major-league win.Reid-Foley had 10 strikeouts Sunday in his first major-league win at Miami. He held the Marlins to one run, four hits and one walk in seven innings of Toronto’s 6-1 victory.He made his major-league debut on Aug. 13 but was returned to Triple-A Buffalo after his second big-league start.“He was fantastic,” Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said after the start on Sunday. “He was popping the ball. That’s the best we’ve seen it.“I think those first two starts and then he went back down Brad Ziegler Jersey , I think he had a lot of confidence coming into today.”One of the call-ups who has become a big fan favorite is first baseman Rowdy Tellez, who had two more doubles Friday and an RBI. He has six doubles since making his big-league debut Tuesday.Tellez is the first player since 1913 to hit six doubles in his first three major-league games and tied the record of six extra-base hits in his first three games set in 2008 by Chris Dickerson.“He’s the new cult hero in town,” Gibbons said.In delivering their eighth walk-off win of the season on Friday, the Blue Jays overcame a strong pitching performance by Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco, who matched his season high with 14 strikeouts.The Blue Jays struck out 20 times in all, but it did not stop them from improving to 10-6 in extra-inning games and 20-12 in games decided by one run this season.Outfielder Michael Brantley http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-rod-carew-jersey , who missed the Indians’ 9-4 victory on Thursday, was used only as a pinch hitter Friday and grounded out in the 10th inning. He suffered a bruised left foot on a foul ball Wednesday in the 3-1 win over the Kansas City Royals.With the Indians’ magic number to clinch the AL Central down to seven, they are going to be extra cautious with Brantley, who was out of the lineup Friday night against the Blue Jays.“I’m probably being a little overprotective,” Indians manager Terry Francona said. “I think it’s probably the prudent thing to do.”The 31-year-old Brantley is hitting .303 with an .819 OPS and 14 home runs in 125 games this season.The Indians’ clinching number in the AL Central remained at seven after the second-place Minnesota Twins beat the Royals 10-6 on Friday. New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge is swinging a bat again.According to Coley Harvey of ESPN.com, the slugger took 50 swings鈥?5 of which were to hit the ball off the tee鈥攑rior to New York's Monday game against the Oakland Athletics. It was the first time Judge has swung since he suffered a chip fracture of his right wrist when he was hit by a pitch on July 26."It's moving in the right direction. It's definitely a big step Brian Dozier Jersey ," Judge said. "We're just excited and kind of on track with what we're going to one day accomplish. So I'm excited for the progress we're making so far."Judge said he didn't feel pain while swinging, and manager Aaron Boone suggested he could be accelerating toward a return to the field with this progress."Once we get through this weekend, and if he continues to graduate, then you start really thinking about a possible timeline about maybe getting back," Boone said.Harvey noted there is no official timetable since the original plan was for him to return in three weeks after the injury. It has been more than five weeks, and Judge won't have the option of minor league rehab games with the minor league regular season over.This progress comes at a time when the Bronx Bombers are 7.5 games behind the Boston Red Sox in the American League East and running out of realistic time to make a charge. However http://www.twinsfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-morneau-jersey , they are still comfortably in the playoff picture at 4.5 games ahead of the Athletics for the top wild-card spot and 10 games ahead of the Seattle Mariners should Oakland make a charge.New York has weathered Judge's setback with Giancarlo Stanton at designated hitter, and the trade acquisition of Andrew McCutchen provides important depth in right field.Still, Judge's return to the lineup will make New York all the more dangerous in the postseason. The reigning American League Rookie of the Year and Silver Slugger winner has appeared in 99 games this season and is slashing .285/.398/.548 with 26 homers and 61 RBI.
