Jays Catcher Whitt Recalled From Syracuse

Due to an undisclosed family emergency, Blue Jays backstop Rick Cerone has been placed on the temporary inactive list by the team, effective yesterday, August 22nd. He departed for his residence in Newark late last night, and will miss this evening’s doubleheader against the Tigers in Detroit. It hasn’t been determined how many games Cerone will be absent, but manager Roy Hartsfield does not expect him back before the 25th.

To fill Cerone’s spot on the roster, and serve as backup to starting catcher Alan Ashby, the Jays have recalled Ernie Whitt from the Syracuse Chiefs of the International League. Whitt went 0-for-6 with two walks and two strikeouts in three games during his short stint with the parent club earlier this season, and will be available to start in either of the two games of tonight’s twinbill.

  2. Does he have the clap?

  3. The good old 70s, no need to worry about changing the name of the “Chiefs”!

    • Definitely true back then, but sadly, the Syracuse Chiefs are no more, as of 2019…and it’s all because of money and stupid thinking. Check out this article, and tell me how the kick-ass new name, Mets, somehow represents ‘a new era in baseball’.

  4. The Mets fans may get confused and head to Syracuse rather than Citi Field!
