Toronto Blue Jay Casey Janssen who grew up a stone’s throw away from the Big A in Orange, CA certainly has the Angels number. In two starts against the Halos this season he’s allowed only three hits and one walk in 15 1/3 innings of work, with two victories. Janssen joined the rotation in place of the injured A.J. Burnett. 42 of Casey’s closest friends were at the game on May 17th to witness a no-hitter through 5 1/3 innings, the game ended as a 3-0 Blue Jay win. After eight innings of shutout ball, the 6’4″ former Bruin righthander gave way to B.J. Ryan for the save. Casey Janssen looked like an old pro on the hill, mixing it up from 68 to 89 MPH. He had the hitters off balance all night long.
