In the wake of injuries to three Blue Jays starters, the call went out for others to step it up.
No group has taken that challenge to heart more than the Blue Jays bullpen.
Even before Brandon Morrow, Kyle Drabek and Drew Hutchison went down with injuries, the Jays relievers were starting to put together a pretty good roll.
In the wake of last week's devastation, they haven't stopped.
Over their past 13 games before their contest against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, the Jays bullpen has worked a total of 522/3 innings, which is the third-highest total in the American League over that period. In those 13 games the relievers have allowed just nine earned runs for a 1.48 ERA while holding the opposition to a .215 average.
Going back to June 3, the Jays bullpen has registered a 1.54 ERA, which ranks second among all American League bullpens.
