On June 6, the Toronto Blue Jays were six games up on the rest of the American League East. By July 3, that lead had completely evaporated and since then, the team has been in a virtual free-fall to their current 13 1/2 games out of first place, and an all-but-certain playoff absence.

After being swept by the Chicago Cubs, and with just nine games left -- one series against each of the three teams ahead of them in the National League Central -- there's a pretty good chance the Cincinnati Reds could end the season in the cellar. That's a recipe for change going forward.

While the Detroit Tigers remain optimistic that Anibal Sanchez will be able to pitch again for the team at some point in 2014, it's looking more and more like he'll be used out of the bullpen, rather than in the rotation.
