This seems only natural for a 250-pound designated hitter in Kansas City who goes by the nicknames “Bam Bam” and “Country Breakfast”: Billy Butler has his own barbeque sauce.

Barbeque sauce in Kansas City seems like a tough market to break into, but Butler’s sauce is raising money for his “Hit-It-A-Ton” charity that helps local families in need of food.

Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi reports that the Blue Jays are considering moving starter Jaime Garcia to the bullpen. If they go that route, Sam Gaviglio would start in Garcia’s place on Sunday against the Angels.

Garcia, 31, has struggled to a 6.16 ERA with a 56/31 K/BB ratio in 61 1/3 innings over 13 starts this season. Gaviglio, meanwhile, has a 3.75 ERA with 35 striekouts and 11 walks in 36 innings across six starts and two relief appearances for the Jays this year.

Garcia inked a one-year, $10 million contract with the Jays in February. The deal includes a club option for the 2019 season worth $10 million with a $2 million buyout.
