TORONTO - What to make of Todd Redmond?

It's a question the Blue Jays have to ponder.

At first glance there's nothing to ponder at all. At 28 years of age and having beat the bushes for nine minor-league seasons, Redmond can easily be viewed as a career minor-leaguer, an also-ran, an able backup at the triple-A level.

Redmond is all of those things and more as since moving into the Blue Jays rotation in July he has been one of their steadier performers.

Redmond made his 12th start of the season on Thursday against the New York Yankees and like so many of his other outings came up with a positive performance.

Pitching into the seventh inning for just the second time this season, Redmond came up with a gem. The right-hander, who is a strike-throwing machine, held the Bronx Bombers to four hits and one run in pitching the Jays to a 6-2 victory to win the final series between the teams.
