That wasn't the start you would have liked to see from J.A. Happ, the day after he is given the 5th starter job. He went 4.2, giving up 4 hits, 4 walks with 4 strikeouts. He did pitch well, once he got into trouble, he only allowed the 1 earned run, but a walk an inning isn't what we'd like to see. He was helped by some timely strikeouts, and some good defense. His spring has been so good, we'll give him a pass for this one. Maybe it was a homage to Ricky. 1.90 spring ERA.
- Esmil Rogers: 1.1, 1 walk, 2 k. 6.94. Looked to be throwing hard, but I didn't hear a radar gun reading.
- Aaron Loup: 1.0, 1 hits, 1 walk, 2 k.
- Jeremy Jeffress: 1.0, 1 hit, 2 k. (gameday says that Loup pitched two innings, I'm pretty sure they are wrong, Jeffress pitched on of the innings).
- Chad Beck: 1.0, 1 k.
- Emilio Bonifacio: 0 for 3, k. .306.
- Rajai Davis: 0 for 2, hit by pitch. .260. He also made a nice catch in left.
- Maicer Izturis: 1 for 3, double. .226.
- Adam Lind: 0 for 3, 2 k. .339.
- Colby Rasmus: 1 for 4, home run. .175.
- Henry Blanco: 0 for 4, k. .258.
- Ryan Langerhans: 1 for 3, walk. .275.
- Mike Nickeas: 1 for 4. .205.
- Peter Mooney: 1 for 3, hit by pitch, steal. .200.
Dickey: "I didn't have as much input on C as you guys might think." Said 3 Cs all caught well. JP has a few things to "tighten up" #jays— Richard Griffin (@RGriffinStar) March 27, 2013
