Ken was sent down to AAA the next day, partly due to his bad performance, but mainly as a message after he cursed Hinch when he came to take him out of the game the day before after he had made a mess.
On July 30th, he was one of three pitchers moved to the Blue Jays in exchange for disgraced closer Roberto Osuna, having clearly lost his skipper’s faith.
Despite pitching poorly in earlier appearances, Giles was a perfect 12-for-12 in save situations for Houston, and the pattern repeated itself in Toronto, as he was successful in all 14 of his save opportunities despite having an ERA above 4.00.
He finished the season with a record of 0-3, 4.65, and 26 saves.
Giles had converted his first three save opportunities for the Blue Jays in 2019, extending his streak to 34 games, until faltering on April 11th at Fenway Park, squandering a one-run 9th inning lead and being charged with a 7-6 loss to the Boston Red Sox.
Over the first half, he was still the Jays’ greatest pitcher, going 1-2 with 13 saves and a 1.45 ERA, allowing only 22 hits in 31 innings and striking out 53 batters.
Marcus Stroman, on the other hand, was chosen to represent the Blue Jays at the 2019 All-Star Game.
