Toronto Blue Jays Notes, Quotes 2009-05-12
--With the five runs scored in Sunday's victory, the Jays became the first team in baseball to reach 200 runs scored this year. The Jays have scored 204 runs, an average of six per game.

--LHP B.J. Ryan made a rehab appearance with Class A Dunedin (Fla.) on Saturday night, working one inning and allowing one hit, one walk and an earned run. Ryan, who went on the DL April 23 with back tightness, had pitched a perfect inning on Thursday for Dunedin. Toronto hasn't indicated a specific timetable for the closer's return to the big leagues.

--SS Marco Scutaro leads the majors in walks with 29 and he's third in the majors in runs scored with 31. Batting leadoff, Scutaro's patience is helping fuel the majors' top-scoring offense -- he has 16 walks to lead off innings. In 2004, Scutaro's first year with Oakland, he had 16 walks in 137 games.

BY THE NUMBERS: 204 -- Blue Jays' run total through 34 games, making them the first team in the majors to the 200-run mark.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We do have to make some decisions. If he continues to pitch like that, there's no reason to take him out of the rotation. He was able to get through the seventh inning and looked like he was still strong. He comes to pitch." -- Toronto manager Cito Gaston, after Brian Tallet made his second consecutive strong start, beating the A's in Oakland.
