David Price may pitch out of short-staffed Blue Jays pen today

John Gibbons has some juggling to do with his pitching staff.

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons is short on options with his bullpen after a 14-2 route in Game Four of the ALCS against the Royals. With reliever Liam Hendriks going 4 1/3 innings on 59 pitches yesterday, he is unavailable today.

Left-handed reliever Aaron Loup is also not available, having left the team to attend to a family emergency.

Closer Roberto Osuna is also nursing a fingernail injury that is affecting his ability to use his slider. Osuna joins Aaron Sanchez, Mark Lowe, LaTroy Hawkins, and Ryan Tepera as available relievers, as well as any starting pitchers like Price that Gibbons chooses to make available.

Of course, perhaps the Jays could turn to Cliff Pennington again.
