Nick Allgeyer is the newest guy to join the Blue Jays game of pitcher musical chairs.
The team will reportedly call up Allgeyer, the No. 30 ranked prospect in their system according to MLB Pipeline, ahead of Saturday night’s game in Dunedin.
This will require somebody being removed from the 40-man roster but we don’t yet know who that is. I would guess that David Phelps is headed to the 60-day Injured List or Tommy Milone is DFA’d.
The #BlueJays plan to add LHP Nick Allgeyer to the roster prior to tonight’s game, per source. He’ll need to clear Covid intake protocols prior to the game.

We all assumed that Alek Manoah would be the next pitcher called up from Triple-A but Allgeyer started on Tuesday so he’s more fresh to potentially log some innings tonight. This also gives the Blue Jays another lefty option, which is important given the fact Tim Mayza seems gassed and Ryan Borucki is injured.
Allgeyer was drafted by the Blue Jays in the 12th round …
